A response to James Strachan

Let me make this very simple. As humans we do both good and bad.

Let me make this very simple. As humans we do both good and bad. We do good because we are made in the image and likeness of God. We do bad because we are fallen.

King James is a fine example. He did noble, i.e. good, by having the bible translated. This good act does not nullify any sins he may have committed in his life. Nor do the sins he committed remove the image and likeness of God.

The castration of an individual, a bad act, would not justify any sin a eunuch may commit. And neither would it remove the image and likeness of God. Sexuality is not to be condemned or praised in it of itself but to the extent the action reflects the image and likeness of God.

King James and the Ethiopian eunuch lived through difficulties I will never know but their divine likeness was not destroyed by bad done by others to them.

But when we sin, we make God’s reflection difficult to see.
