Satan’s world is becoming more and more immoral and sinful, and forcing Christians to participate in its sins. True Christians are now in a bind if having to decide whether to get canceled, lose their job, or even be prosecuted or persecuted for their beliefs. What will you do? “A Wisconsin middle schooler, who is accused of sexual harassment for misgendering a classmate, said he is afraid for his future if the Title IX violation is not removed from his record.” (Fox News)
What does that mean? “A Wisconsin school district has filed sexual harassment complaints against three middle schoolers for calling a classmate by a wrong pronoun.” (NY Post)
In our woke culture now, this is called “misgendering.” Misgendering is to refer to (someone, especially a transgender person) using a word, especially a pronoun or form of address, that does not correctly reflect the gender with which they identify. No true Christian would call a biological boy “she” or “her” simply because the person thinks they are female. A lot of the cases are school officials manipulating young minds into changing their genders and even trying to convince them that they should get hormone blockers, even surgery. They start this mind control manipulation as early as kindergarten or first grade, which is why Florida Governor DeSantis signed into law a bill that bans the discussion of gender identity and sexual orientation for kids in kindergarten through third grade.

This is just one of many hundreds of circumstances where Christians are being coerced or forced to share in the sins of others. Memorable examples would be the Christian bakers that were asked to make a homosexual wedding cake, and they refused. “The controversy started in 2013 when Aaron Klein declined to provide a cake for a lesbian wedding. Later that year, the women filed a complaint against Klein and his wife, Melissa.” (NY Post) So, the governor fined their business thousands of dollars. “Within hours of the ruling, the Family Research Council facilitated the establishment of a GoFundMe account to help the Kleins raise the money they need. In less than eight hours, more than $100,000 was raised. However, late Friday GoFundMe pulled the plug — sending this message to would-be donors: ‘After careful review by our team, we have found the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions,” the message read. “The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal.’” (NY Post) Most media and online big businesses are among the woke liberal progressive socialists trying to for Christians into a corner by violating their beliefs. They are trying to make believers share in the sin of others.
How Does One Share in the Sins of Others?
A believer can become guilty of sin before God in many ways, really. One is by his willing association or participation with wrongdoers, by his approval or tacit approval of their wrongdoing. Tacit approval means that the believer silently goes along, in essence becoming a partner or sharer in sin. In short, sin is anything contrary to God’s personality, ways, standards, and will. Sin may be in what one says (Job 2:10; Ps 39:1), in what one does (doing wrong acts [Le 20:20; 2Co 12:21], or not doing what one should have done [Nu 9:13; Jas 4:17]). This can be in mind or heart attitude (Pr 21:4; Rom. 3:9-18; 2Pe 2:12-15). Sin destroys a Christian’s relationship with God. Sin causes us to miss the mark, even as an archer with his bow and arrow can shoot an arrow but miss his target. We can sin intentionally or by mistake. (Num. 15:27-31) Sin is deeply ingrained in humans, and it creates a wall between them and God, their Creator. – Ps. 51:5; Isa. 59:2; Col. 1:21.
We can share in sin by his covering over the sinner’s conduct, ignoring the facts that it is a sin, and even aiding them in carrying out that sin. (Cf. Ps 50:18, 21; 1Ti 5:22.) Those who share or partner in the sin will receive the same punishment from God that the sinner receives. (Rev. 18:2, 4-8) As a side point for those Bible scholars even “receiving him into your house or give him any greeting,” let alone co-authoring books with a former Christian who is now an apostate (e.g., Dr. Bart D. Ehrman) trying to stumble others out of the faith, who have abandoned the teaching of the Christ “takes part in his wicked works.” – 2Jo 9-11; Cf. Tit 3:10, 11.
Paul warned Timothy against being “taking part in the sins of others.” (1Ti 5:22) “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” – Pr 14:34.
