Scripture:- Genesis 16:1-16
Topic:- Two Reasonable Questions On Sin
Text:- 1 John 5:17
- Is It A Sin:
A Christian sister got pregnant and the Church decided to discipline her since she was not married.
When the Elders of the Church met and interviewed her.
She told them that she has stayed and remained in the Church for several years and no one is marrying her.
And she is getting to and approaching the age of menopause where she can’t get pregnant even if married.
So after reading some Christian Medical Journals on this issues, she decided and did Artificial Insemination since she too wants a child.
She tendered both the Medical Journals and the Medical documents that showed that she has done the Artificial Insemination from a reputable Hospital.
The Sister is pregnant without committing fornication nor adultery with any man,
NOW, COULD THIS BE A SIN?
Kindly give your reasons for your answer and if possible back it with Scripture, so that we can learn. You may wish to send to your Christian friends and see their position on the matter.
- Who Has Committed Sin:
A Priest requested for fund raising to build a Church.
Then the Congregation contributed 300k [Thousand Naira] only.
Immediately after, Thieves entered and held the Church under siege and ordered everyone to hand out everything in their pockets. They gathered 8 million, 200 hundred thousands and 50cents.
Later, the Thieves gave the cash to the Priest in order to fund the Church building project.
Who has committed sin between the Priest, the Thieves and the Church Congregation?
Prayer Point:- May God help us not to fall into temptation nor sin, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy New Month!
