In recent years it seems all that a person sees or hears on major media sources is fault-finding between political and social factions. As disturbing as these reports are, they shouldn’t take us by surprise. If an investigation is carried on long enough and truly enough there would not be one person that would escape without finding some fault. Even people of highest integrity are not without fault. The phrase, “Well, nobody’s perfect!” is often used as an excuse when someone’s flaw is exposed to the public. The Bible does say, “there is none righteous, no, not one,” But God had that scripture written to expose our sin to each of us personally rather than to excuse our faults publicly.
Going back to Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary, we find the unsullied definition of “fault”: 1. Properly, an erring or missing; a failing; hence, an error or mistake; a blunder; a defect; a blemish; whatever impairs excellence; 2. In morals or deportment, any error or defect; an imperfection; any deviation from propriety; a slight offense; a neglect of duty or propriety, resulting from inattention or want of prudence, rather than from design to injure or offend, but liable to censure or objection.
After hearing all the witnesses and examining Jesus Christ by scourging; neither Herod, the king nor Pilate, the governor could find any fault in Him! Jesus Christ was exonerated by Pilate. However, even after stating at least three times recorded in the Gospel of John that he had found no fault in Jesus Christ, to appease the people he allowed them to execute Him by the capital punishment of crucifixion along with the thieves and murderers.
John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
John 19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
John 19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
Jesus did not die for anything He did wrong; He died for everything you did wrong. Why Don’t you ask Him to forgive your Sin?
