The Bible Answers Short Questions From Our Readers
Plain Truth Staff

Question: Why did Abraham and David find high favor with God, since they committed sins such as lying, adultery, and murder? Does God show favoritism? Answer: God is no respecter of persons. We have all sinned. "Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all (James 2:10). Anyone who commits any sin - just one point - is just as guilty, then, as David and Abraham were when they committed their sins. Many of our sins, which are very common and which do not appear very great in our own eyes, are nevertheless very great in God's sight. In I Samuel 15:23 we read: "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry." Here we have God's statement that rebellion (disobedience of any sort) and stubbornness are both as great as witchcraft and idolatry, which are two of the greatest sins. We have ALL been guilty of disobedience and stubbornness, which means we have ALL been As GUILTY AS ANYONE COULD BE.
