The Trial

Romans 5:19

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous

The courtroom was set. In comes the bailiff and stands toward the courtroom. “All rise!, as The ALMIGHTY, EVERLASTING, OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, CREATOR, ELOHIM, ETERNAL, EL ELYON, EL SHADDAI, MASTER, RULER, JEHOVAH, JUDGE ENTERS.” The courtroom is silent. You could hear cotton drop on carpet. He enters and says, “YOU MAY SIT.”  The jury stands up and says “Your Honor, we of the jury find the defendant guilty of breaking all your commandments, rebellion, backbiting, stealing, lying, cheating, slandering, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and SIN!”  The defendant whispered to his lawyer

“Man I didn’t know I did all of that…I murdered somebody? Did they say revellings, variance, emulations, sedition, and heresies? I don’t even know what those words mean.”
