“For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? And why not say, ‘Let us do evil that good may come’?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just” (Romans 3:7-8).
My older brother was not the world’s safest driver. By the time he left home, he had been involved in seven car accidents. Four of which totaled the vehicle he was driving. He walked away from each incident with barely a scratch.
After the dust had settled from his seventh accident, he told our mother—in all sincerity and seriousness—“We are better off now because of the accidents I have had. We drive a better car, and you now have no loan payments.” (Apparently the huge spike in the cost of car insurance was no big deal to his way of thinking.)
If you can see the absurdity of a teenager’s “logic”, you can also easily see the absurdity of a sinner believing he did God a favor by becoming a sinner, and therefore ought not face any punishment for his wickedness and disobedience.
To pervert the gospel of God’s grace so as to excuse human sin is slanderous to the core. It reeks of ignorance and arrogance.
God’s judgment on all who so heinously misrepresent the gospel with such convoluted “logic” is just.
