Tiger’s Transgressions

Photo Source: bet.com

Mr. Tiger Woods is getting ready to hold a press conference to apologize to the world for his “transgressions.” The Bible says that we should confess our sins, but not so others can point and judge the one confessing (1 John 1:9). The American media, as always, has proven to be just as hypocritical as they have been in the past (See Bill Clinton). For some reason, they hold celebrities and people of power to a higher standard. Then, once those individuals make a mistake, they are ready to burn them at the stake.

Where is the forgiveness? (Matthew 18:21) Instead of jeering, judging, and pointing we should pray for him and hope that we do not fall into the same trap. Yes, we are all capable of sin and transgressions. It is in our nature to do so (Romans 3:23). In fact, if many of us had to stand on the world stage and confess our sins, there would be bigger scandals far greater for the world to see than those of Tiger Woods (Matthew 7:5).


One thought on “Tiger’s Transgressions

  1. Amen. This reminds me of Jesus’ challenge at the crowd who wanted to stone the woman caught in adultery. Oh, the world is quick to judge, yet they are caught up in the same web. God teach us how to forgive.
