2-24-2016 Moral Discrimination Required

In trying to prevent discrimination over skin color, moral discrimination is overturned. Skin and sin are not the same discrimination. The problem is: “In the place of judgment, Wickedness was there; And in the place of righteousness, Iniquity was there” (Ecclesiastes 3:16 NKJV). Moral discrimination about behavior is absolutely essential. “The righteous should choose his friends carefully, For the way of the wicked leads them astray” (Proverbs 12:26 NKJV). “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20 NKJV). A nation can suffer because its leaders are morally wrong. “For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had encouraged moral decline in Judah and had been continually unfaithful to the LORD” (2 Chronicles 28:19 NKJV).

4-9-2015 What Is Discrimination #4

Solomon said, “a wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgment, Because for every matter there is a time and judgment” (Ecclesiastes 8:5-6 NKJV). Today, Christians are “those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14 NKJV). Skin color is no basis for discrimination, but a moral decision is! If discrimination against skin is opposed along with discrimination against the immoral, then Solomon “saw under the sun: In the place of judgment, Wickedness was there; And in the place of righteousness, Iniquity was there” (Ecclesiastes 3:16 NKJV). This is “throwing out the baby with the bathwater.”

Throwing out all “discrimination” because some of it is wrong, destroys the difference between ”good and evil.” Jesus said, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment” (John 7:24 NKJV).
