The concept of sin has been perceived differently by different religions, but it is most likely they all agree no man ever lived without sinning.
Rev. Franklin Graham stated that all people have sinned in the eyes of God. And, since we are speaking of sins, Re. Franklin also offered a piece of wisdom on Facebook, where he compared sinning with the latest Confederate statues removal.
Take a look at what he said:
“There’s a monument in Jerusalem’s Kidron Valley called Absalom’s Pillar that has been there for a few thousand years,” Graham explained. “Absalom was a man guilty of murder, treason, and even trying to kill his own father — King David.”
That’s a part of history — taking it down wouldn’t change what happened,” Graham continued. “I’m thankful the monument still stands today to remind us of Absalom’s very serious and costly sins.”
In the very same fashion, he continued:
“There are monuments in our country today that remind us of the sins of our past, and taking them down isn’t going to change the mistakes we have made as a nation.”
“They remind us of the truth — the good, the bad, and the ugly. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in May, ‘I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you’ and so I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names and recognize what they did and to be able to tell our kids what they did, and for them to have a sense of their own history. When you start wiping out your history, sanitizing your history to make you feel better, it’s a bad thing,’” he added.
“Perhaps monuments can serve to help us teach our children and grandchildren to avoid repeating the same mistakes in the future,” Graham concluded.
The post quickly became trending among others supporters of this message.
One of the statues that ignited the entire mayhem due to removal threats was the one of Robert E. Lee, who was a man well acuainted to slavery but also loyal to Virginia.
He said that everything relevant for the matter and is already mentioned on the Declaration of Independence. And here is what it reads, “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth … a decent respect to the
opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
You can turn your back on your history, but the fact that it happened is going nowhere.
