Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. I Peter 4:8 NIV. We learned this verse in Sunday School. We have learned that if we love each other, we will be able to overlook each other's sin. Does it work according to the world's standards?
Apparently not. What does the world really believe? Above all, love those that have money, because money covers over a multitude of sins. The morning news featured a story about Hugh Hefner. I was checking email and saw the pictures. The sound on the television was muted so I do not know what was reported. However, I saw him being toasted and applauded by young, beautiful women. The world sees Hugh Hefner as a classy, sexy, successful man.
If Hugh Hefner did not have mega-money, he would be considered a dirty old man. He has made a fortune flaunting a life of sin, pushing pornography under the guise of 'freedom of the press/expression', and trying to convince Joe Everyman that he is missing a fulfilling life by remaining faithful to his wife.
Sexy women and envious men may be impressed with Hugh Hefner, but will God?
