As the election comes near, it seems that the focus has shifted from alcohol to where one stands religiously. I’m a Christian who was raised in Trigg County and try to apply Bible principles in my life.
I signed the petition to bring prohibition to an end. In doing so, I and 21 others have been approached by our preacher to apologize and ask forgiveness in front of fellow church members; although in my conscience, I have not wronged. If we do not ask for forgivness, our names will be removed from the roster as members.
The sin is not in the drink, it is in the overindulgence.
I am deeply disappointed in this man and the judgement being placed for simply trying to improve our county’s economy. Also, the last time I attended church, I was looked down upon for wearing pants; shouldn’t worship be more important than attire? A shepherd is to watch and guide his flock, not remove them from the church. A pastor should lead his congregation as Christ did, with love.
I was always taught not judge others or you too will be judged. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. If we are pointing out sins let’s acknowledge them all. With this issue causing such a rift in our community, I would like to point out 1st Peter 4:8: “Above all love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.”
