Ensign’s downplay of his adultery

It’s beyond obnoxious for Republican Sen. John Ensign to downplay his adultery with his friend’s wife by saying that at least he didn’t do anything “legally wrong.”

  1. He broke God’s Law in several ways, including adultery, bribery and deception.
  2. He has negatively affected many lives.
  3. He has, like so many others, embarrassed the Church.

There’s probably a lot more to be said. But it goes to show that gross sin isn’t the sole province of any political party or movement.

Ensign should, just as any of us do when we sin, admit our sin without downplaying it and humbly seek forgiveness.

By the same token, “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

The whole situation also shows how easy it is to live a Christian veneer while justifying sin in the rest of your life. Let each of us beware.
