CAL’S COMMENTS: ‘ALL OF MY SINS ARE FORGIVEN,” AND OTHER LIES
Here’s the top ten lies I was told recently
1.“All of my sins are forgiven.”
2.“I am a Christian.”
3.“God forgives. I’m okay.”
4.“I’m saved, and I go to church every Sunday.”
5.“The Bible says not to judge.”
6.“I’m praying for you, too.”
7.“So what? No sin is bigger than any other sin.”
8.“We’ll repent later.”
9.“I’m going to jail if you don’t shut up!”
10.“We’re fine. Our choice is between us and God.”
These statements were made to me while my family and I were evangelizing on the sidewalk in front of the last remaining surgical abortuary in Mississippi. They all came from mothers and fathers who were murdering their preborn children. Other lies were told: “It’s not a person yet.” “What I do doesn’t affect anybody else.”
Besides the lies they told, there were the lies they showed; Christian bumper stickers, cross jewelry, and rosaries worn around their necks.
