I am here, dear Christian friend, to remind you of a simple Christian principle, of an uncomplicated fundamental Christian value. God does indeed hold Christians accountable for sins of others – even those in the secular world.
“Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD,” (Leviticus 19: 17,18).
If even the secular world can grasp the simple principle of collective accountability for the actions of others, should not we grasp the Christian principle wherein we are accountable for the sins of others. The LORD speaks clearly concerning the obligation that all mankind must take a stand against wicked behavior.
Just because your government seeks to force acceptance of evil unions between men to men or women to women does not mean that Christians should not address the wickedness of the issue. Just because your government demands tolerance that is really merely a disguised intolerance of Christian beliefs does not obligate you to deny your God and His truths.
Yes, my friend, you and I remain ever accountable for sins of others.
