Sin without consequence. Wrong without shame.


The following article by Dr. Bob Jones, President of Bob Jones University, Greenville, S.C, appeared in BJU Review, Summer 2001 edition. We thank God for a man in his position who is taking such a faithful stand for truth and righteousness in high places.
Dr. Bob Jones III

'Misdeeds without opprobrium.  Sin without consequence.  Wrong without shame.  This is the world without God to which man without God fervently aspires.

The God of the world has told us that He is not mocked, and that whatsoever man sows he will reap. (Galatians 6:7) Yet man mocks Him still.

A sitting U S President scandalises the nation with lewd behaviour, making a mockery of his marriage vows. When caught, he lies under oath; but for all of his unbridled evil in this and so much more, he receives only a slap on the wrist.  Upon leaving office, he has the temerity to declare that he has done a lot of good, and in the following days, it is reported that he is receiving 100 speaking invitations each week at $100,000 average per speech.  I will never again believe that crime doesn't pay!

A 'reverend' named Jesse, it is revealed, has fathered an illegitimate child, which he supports along with the mother in handsome style from funds raised by his organization to help poor people, among other things.  Following the public exposure of his sin, he enters a one-day hiatus, after which he appears at church to proclaim that he will resume business as usual.  His biographer is reported in USA Today as saying that all this 'may enhance his moral stature'.  This same man was Bill Clinton's spiritual counselor while the President was under the siege of criticism for immorality.  I wonder what they talked about?

A few days later, the newspapers of America revealed that the mayor of San Francisco, a sexual philanderer, had produced an illegitimate child.  He brushed off his critics by saying that this was nothing 'so unusual'.  Actually, he may have it right.  Sin has become so 'usual', so acceptable, that sexual purity and moral decency are unusual.

The homosexual lifestyle is being promoted by educators, politicians, and even some sold-out preachers as normal and acceptable. They ask the rest of us to put our approval on it.  They push for the passing of laws that will punish us if we don't.  A Christian printer in Caada refuses to print materials promoting the agenda of a gay rights group because their lifestyle violated his Christian convictions.  The group took him to court where he was fined $5000.  He has appealed his case to the higher court where it waits a decision.

The homosexual lifestyle is one of death, but refusing to see that God has built into His universe immutable consequences for their perversity, homosexuals expect taxpayers to fund billions in medical research, hoping that a cure for AIDS can be found that will enable them to live in their sin, escaping God's judgment.  All the money in God's world won't stop God from having His way.

At BJU we teach students to live all the days of their lives in the fear of God and in remembrance that 'He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting'. Galatians 6:8.

'Fools make a mock at sin' (Proverbs 14:9).  The wise walk humbly before God because 'the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding'. (Proverbs 9:10).
