The Doctrine of Bloodguiltiness-Part 1
Bad Biblical theology inevitably leads to bad behavior. This premise reveals why the Church is either complicit with the dominant evils that are destroying America & the world. Unfortunately, much of the Church seems blissfully & willfully ignorant of this proposition. As bad theology corrupts the Church, it not only serves to weaken her mission, but it has historically strengthened the oppressors of mankind and victimized the weak. Lamentations 4:12,13 reveals what happens when the Church veers from the truth, “The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem. For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her.” In this passage of Scripture God reveals that the pagan kings of the earth were scratching their heads wondering how could the enemies of God’s people capture Jerusalem?” According to this passage, the enemies of the land could not overtake Jerusalem without the prophets & priests becoming apostate. A compromised church and wickedness prevailing walk hand in hand.
Jeremiah, at great personal peril, pointed the finger in the right direction as he exposed the sins of the prophets and the priests. He also pointed out the one particular sin that God’s people refused to deal with justly. It was the sin of allowing the shedding of innocent blood in their midst. Like Cain before them, they decided by their silence and inaction that they were not their brother’s keeper. The modern-day church is as woefully ignorant concerning the doctrine of blood guiltiness as they were.
