December 5, , was declared a national day of mourning for the United States of America, because former President George H. W. Bush had died the previous day. Many governmental agencies were shut down in response to this day of mourning for a past president. When I heard about this, there were a couple of observations that ran through my mind. National Sins: Nineveh. National Sins: Often Caused and Encouraged by Rulers. National Sins: Often Caused by Prosperity. National Sins: Pervade all Ranks. National Sins: Punishment For. National Sins: Punishment For, Averted on Repentance. National Sins: Saints Especially Mourn Over. National Sins: should be Confessed. National Sins: should be.

8 Sins Christians are Starting to Ignore. Rachel-Claire Cockrell. What is Sin? There are certain sins that Christians are always good at pointing out - usually in others. And there are obviously sins that we are shocked and appalled by, and usually see these sins as worse than others. But the reality is, all sin separates us from Christ. We are to be grieved by the things that grieves the Lord, to mourn over sin and the effects of sin in our lives and in our world today. The Beatitudes describe what every Christian ought to be. • Jesus says these are those who are truly blessed. • We are to manifest ALL these traits.

  Reflecting on the second Beatitude — “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” — the pope said in his General Audience in the Vatican that a key dimension of this blessing is “tears for sin — for one’s own sin — when the heart bleeds from the pain of having offended God and neighbor.”. We must distinguish this blessed sadness from “those who get angry. Observe here, 1. That mourning for sin is a gospel-duty: the law allows no place for repentance, though we seek it carefully with tears. Observe, 2. The time and reason for this duty. Blessed are they that now mourn. Sorrow for sin is physic on earth, but it is food in hell. Repentance is here a grace, but there a punishment. Observe, 3.

National Sins and National Judgments A sermon by John Owen Preached Ap “For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they.

The duty of Christians to mourn for national sins.: a sermon. Preached on Thursday, February The day appointed for a general fast. By Joseph Johnston.

His mourning over sin, even as a Christian, led him to be comforted. God commands us in the Book of James to take our sins seriously as Christians, and mourn over them: James says: “Be miserable, mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into gloom.

If you love God, and love your neighbour, if you believe heaven and hell, and have any sense of the truth of the promises or threatenings, you will be thus affected in some measure to mourn and grieve for the sins of others.

This duty doth chiefly concern public persons, though it lies upon all Christians, magistrates and ministers and officers of the church, because of their public and universal. A Christian duty to comfort those who mourn Todays Catholic Mourners surround the casket of Holy Cross Father Theodore Hesburgh during his burial service March 4,at Holy Cross Community Cemetery on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

Turn in your Bible to Matthew chapter 5, if you will, in our continuing study of the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew chapter 5, we come to that second Beatitude in verse 4, “Blessed. Ongoing mourning should occur anytime a follower of Jesus sins.

If you repeat the sin, you should be in sorrow again. Mourn when you sin and rejoice after you confess the sin to God. You are forgiven and destined for heaven. The closest verse would be Jesus’ words about fasting when mourning: “The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days.” Luke If mourning is an appropriate time to fast, and you happen to be mourning over your sin, then it could be appropriate to fast too.

Back in the 17th century, the Anglican priest-poet George Herbert maintained that the national sin of his day was idleness. Whether that was an accurate portrayal we must leave to historians and. Mourning over our sin is right (Psalm ). Sinners and the double-minded are told to seek cleansing and “grieve, mourn and wail.

Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom” (James –9). Mourning, as part of repentance, is natural and healthy. But we are not to live in continual mourning. The death of Christ on the Cross becomes the public liturgy for the sin burden of Israel.

Of course, He was the public liturgy for the sin burden of the whole world. But there was a principle articulated in His sacrifice – that one man could die for the whole.

This is not a substitutionary legal event. True spiritual mourning begins by naming one or more sins, stating them clearly without excuse and without evasion. Declare them immediately, and admit they are an offense against God. Get used to identifying particular sins when you read the Bible.

You will begin to see what God sees, and you will get to know what grieves and offends him. Since every Christian professes to have died to sin and to having been raised to newness of life in Christ, continuing to live in sin is both unreasonable and unacceptable (chapter 6).

Although godly living is necessary, it is humanly impossible, due. In his book on humility (release posthumously) he offers application that seems particularly appropriate to a time of political turmoil and disunity, and to a time of deep national depravity. Bridges has just explained that mourning over sin is a display of humility because “We cannot be proud and mourn over sin at the same time.

confessed with mourning and sorrow over falling short. The only way we avoid mourning is to refuse to admit sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

As Christians, we believe that all sins are considered equal in God's eyes. Yet while evangelicals continue to decry the Big Onessuch as abortion, adultery, and violencewe often overlook more deceptive sins.

It seems we've created a sliding scale where gossip, jealousy, and selfishness comfortably exist within the church. In short, some sins have simply become acceptable. The duty of white Christians to dismantle the idolatry of racism religious walk with others toward the National Museum of African American History and Culture June 8 during a.

A Christian’s response to sin, whether his own or the sin of other believers, should be to mourn. That attitude stems from trembling at the words of God (). The godly reaction to sin is first to recognize it from Scripture, and then to mourn over it.

Psalm Rivers of waters run down my eyes, because they keep not your law. Torrey's Topical Textbook. Ezekiel And the LORD said to him, Go through the middle of the city, through the middle of Jerusalem, and set a mark on the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the middle thereof.

The mourning wherein Christ's people are blessed is this spiritual mourning--that is to say, the mourning of Christ's servants for their sins and the sins of the world against a righteous God. As God's stewards we are to go against the grain and humble ourselves (Psalms ) before God, confessing our sins.

Doct. That it is the duty and property of a godly man to mourn bitterly, even for other men’s sins. Here we have David’s instance; and it may be suited with the practice of all the saints.

Jeremiah: see Jer. xiii. 17, ‘But if ye will not hear, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride. I must disagree about previous comments regarding abortion as our national sin. I believe our national sins go much further back than that–slavery, the attempted genocide of Native Americans and eliminating their culture, the greedy destruction of God’s natural beauty, the current pursuit (idolatry) of money and wealth; poverty, homelessness, and our general disregard for God’s.

True mourning over sin is also more than simply being sorry. In 2 Corinthians Paul expressed his thankfulness that the Corinthian believers’ sorrow led to their repentance.

We may regret and genuinely feel sorrow for our sin, even as Judas did in when he tried to give back the 30 pieces of silver, but this is not true repentance that.
