NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
While watching a rerun of a popular comedy sitcom, I was amused by one character’s position.
She informed her parents that she had decided that premarital sex was not a sin. I guess that’s like a bank robber telling a judge that he had decided that robbing banks was not wrong and he was going to continue doing it. Guess what his chances will be.
The way I see it is that we, as individuals, don’t decide what’s right or wrong, we decide whether to obey or disobey rules, and these actions could have serious consequences.
Deuteronomy 30:19 states that a choice one has is between life and death and the consequences are blessings or curses.
I don’t believe God sends people to their demise, but a person chooses which way he’s headed by his own actions. God spells out what is right and wrong and there’s no straddling the fence. As humans, we don’t set the rules, but we are liable for the consequences and some of the decisions we make may have negative consequences.
I believe that when one votes in an election, one makes two choices. One is for a candidate, the other determines how one will be judged.
You see, politicians and parties have platforms and before one pulls the lever, one should be aware there may be consequences other than just electing the person.
Ignorance is not an excuse in the eyes of the law nor is ignorance a right, but it is sadly, a choice. No one is forced to vote, everyone chooses to vote and one might be choosing whether blessings or curses are in their future. A word to the wise is sufficient.
