What changed?

It seems that people mold the rules of society to fit their desires rather than accepting the Truth! This is a message from a local Pastor Hill:

Title: Six sins?
Post by: Kerminator on 08, Nov 2009, 19:28*: GMT

The sixth-century church leader, Gregory the Great, is often credited with listing the “seven deadly sins,” which include pride, anger, envy, greed, sloth, gluttony, and lust.   
In 2005, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) conducted a poll asking respondents if this list was still relevant for today’s society.    Of Gregory’s original list of seven sins, only greed was still considered a “relevant sin.”    The survey then asked respondents to identify which so-called modern sins should be on the list instead.  Respondents listed cruelty, hypocrisy, selfishness, wastefulness, dishonesty, bigotry, and adultery.

While we probably don’t agree with the trend away from seeing pride and lust as sinful, we can note that the “modern” sins are also blameworthy.   In fact, there’s significant overlap between these lists and the one in the passage above.   What is surprising is the appearance of “ungrateful” in the middle of this passage.    We’ve already seen the unexpected connection between ingratitude and those sins we’re tempted to consider more serious in Romans 1.    Like that passage, 2 Timothy 3 also shows that failing to be thankful ultimately indicates a failure to worship God.

Today’s passage is set within the context of the end times, when the true nature of those who have rejected the Lord will be even more apparent. Notice that this passage really concerns love, specifically loving oneself more than loving God. Because these individuals have turned away from the true God, they have placed themselves at the disposal of the Evil One. With this in mind, it is not surprising to find that failing to give thanks to God is associated with more serious evil.

Many of the blessings that we miss in life come when we are not thankful to God for the blessings he has already bestowed on us. Take a moment this morning to thank God for the life of the Spirit within you and his reign over you. It will make you glad and put a smile on his face too.

  So now there is only one deadly sin?
