Numbers 32:23 ..behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.
‘Growing up in church, you hear the phrase “your sin will find you out” a lot. As a kid, it’s a little scary, because when you slip up, you know the person saying it means “Confess now, the hammer is going to come down on you sooner or later.” In my short life, I’ve seen the sin of a lot of pastors, leaders, teachers, youth pastors, volunteers come into the light, only to be quickly hidden away.
Rape. Molestation. Beatings. Racism. Financial impropriety. But, the scary thing is – the proverbial hammer rarely comes down on them. While there is swift punishment and rejection for congregants who dare go to the movies, say a bad word, get tattoos, or have a glass of wine – the leaders of those same congregations seem like they can get away with murder.
Let’s stop that now. Let’s aim that commonly used phrase right back at the men who spew it as a threat from their pulpit often. Let’s remind the abusers that THEIR sin will find them out. Their evil WILL not be swept under the rug any longer. Let’s reclaim the churches. The schools. The programs. Let’s hold people accountable for hurting the vulnerable in places where they should be safest. Your sin will find you out.’https://www.facebook.com/preacherboysdoc/
