We've not eradicated "Sin".  It's very much still with us; events of the past couple of weeks should make that obvious. But the problem is to not recognize sin's destructive powers is the reason we're in this mess. It was sin that compelled a white Minneapolis Police officer to brutally restrain an African American man, killing him. It was sin that compelled protesters to morph into an angry mob bent on looting and destroying. It is a sin to not see that all life is valuable and sacred, that all of us are made in God's image. Sin is a disease common to all of humanity from the beginning time, and yet, while we tend to see it in others we rarely see in ourselves. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Sam Rohrer, head of the American Pastors Network, expands on his OpEd, "In The Absence of Moral Restraint, Sin Begets Sin." In today's modern, technology-heavy world, sin is rarely talked about, it's even laughed at. Yet there's no better way to explain the evil of what has unfolded in America and around the world. Sin isn't just breaking the rules, although it is that. It is putting ourselves in the place of God; of believing we have the right to determine right or wrong for ourselves instead of acknowledging an objective standard of right and wrong, of justice and morality existing outside of each individual. Laws can only do so much. It may give you the absence of violence but not necessarily the presence of peace. Moral restraint comes from fealty to a Higher Calling. Sin isn't just breaking God's commandments, it's breaking God's heart.
