Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines Loophole as a passage for escape; means of escape.

Loopholes seem to be extremely popular in our world today. What are some of your favorite Loopholes?

James 4:17 tells us, “If you know what is right to do but you do not do it, you sin.”

Is this JUST about adultery, pornography, a lying tongue, murder, etc? Seems to be what we hear it referred to most.

Could this also be referring to what we put in our mouths calling it “food”? What would some of those items be?

  • Candy dishes full of sugar sitting in a very accessible area, especially when you KNOW someone will be in close proximity to that dish who’s goal is to stop partaking of those items, but still needs support in that goal? Do Ephesians 6:2, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 1 Corinthians 8:13 address this? Hmmm…
  • Partaking of contents in the candy dish rather than renewing your mind and finding the courage to resist, especially when you’ve already set a goal to resist and find new habits
  • Food items we KNOW have a negative affect on our bodies?
  • “I’ll just eat/drink this then purge it out later” rather than finding the courage to resist
  • Sodas?
  • Prescriptions given by a doctor? Have you researched the DRUG?
  • _______________________ Fill in the blank

What are some of the Loopholes we use for consuming such items? One that I hear the most is, “One won’t kill me!”

Hmmmm…. doesn’t that sound very similar to the justification for:

  • “One” pornographic episode, even if it is ‘just a quick peek'”
  • “One prostitute won’t hurt”
  • “I’m only taking this Opioid because it was prescribed by the doctor for my pain! After the pain goes away I’ll stop taking them!”
  • “One alcoholic beverage won’t hurt. It’ll just help me relax.”
  • “My doctor prescribed it and said it’s ok”
  • “It tastes sooo YUMMY it MUST be good for me”
  • “Everyone else is doing it/eating it… etc”
  • “But they spent all that time and money and got a degree, so they must know best”

“Just one”… isn’t that how addictions start?

Tim and I call these loopholes Adulterating our Temple of the Holy Spirit. WOW!!! That puts a different perspective on the issue, doesn’t it? If it doesn’t with you, why?
