There is a new anti-Christian meme floating around social media. And like many of these memes they paint a picture that is not true to Holy Scripture.
The latest one starts off with an individual admitting he was a sinner. And then lists his sin as being left-handed. It further states that his sin is listed in the Bible 25 times. Without referencing a single verse.
At the end of this meme the individual states that society has learned to accept left-handed people so its not longer a sin.
Now anyone who has actually READ the Holy Scriptures or who has studied them, as all believers and followers of Jesus Christ are called to do, will be able to tell you without a doubt that being left-handed is not a sin anywhere in the Bible.
Yes the Bible does talk about left-handed people from time to time. But the point is not that they are sinners because of the hand that the use. In most cases the left-handed individual is called by God to something very Holy. Just that their left-handedness is rare just as it is today. They are far more right-handed people than left-handed. But it is not a sin.
Every sin that is listed within the pages of Holy Scripture are behavioral actions done or in some cases not done. And it is clear that every human on Earth is a sinner and in need of God’s salvation through Christ.
At no point in the Bible is a sin based on the status or attribute of any person. It is always their actions or lack of actions that are an offense to God.
The meme’s purpose is to discredit Christianity, the Bible, and followers of Jesus Christ. It attempt to equate the in-born handedness with the sin behaviors of sexual immoralities, hinting that both are in-born.
This is of course a false doctrine invented by man to raise himself above his Almighty Creator in order to justify his own actions.
Society cannot and never has been able to dictate to God on what is or is not sin based on how “enlightened” that society has become. Sin is sin and will always be sin. God doesn’t change and his laws do not change either.
