Once a new believer has had an experience with the Lord and is truly in the infancy stages of their walk, often, they become stunted in their growth as it relates to daily interaction with others because of the lack of focus on self-examination; as such, the ability to justify wrong behavior becomes a finely tuned skill for many followers of Christ.
IF you believe Jesus is LORD then, Sin is Sin! (period).
What your vice is DOES NOT matter, if the bible identifies it as sin, then that's just what it is, nothing more, nothing less. But refusing to see it for what it is is the place where most become stunted and many get lost.
If the word is TRUE and it calls what you're doing SIN, then that's what it is!... Now What?
...This is where Wisdom's Weekly Word comes in.
What we believe...
*Proverbs 18:19 KJV
19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions * are like the bars of a castle.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
*Proverbs 16:7 KJV
7 When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on , and are punished .
*2 Corinthians 13:5KJV
5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
