Sin Isn't the Problem

 

 

 

 

As a young man I attended a Bible school in upstate New York. Those were wonderful days. I met my trophy wife there!!! She’s made my life one big adventure!

I also bought into a lie there that is still being populated by that institution and by most religious institutions across America. The lie? Sin is the problem between God and man; distance, delay and separation are still the norm and that we are still prone to wander…

I have since learned that nothing can be farther from the truth!

Yes, sin has consequences. But sin is no longer the problem. Ignorance is. Ignorance of the incarnation and the finished work of Christ 2000 years ago!

When that light of truth shines into our hearts, sin is the least of our concern and the well-Springs of Abundant Life burst open as promised!

All I want to do now is to discover more on a daily basis the significance of that glorious finished work; and how He sees us! Our union! Our oneness! And day by day the “wow” factor and the transformation blows the lid off everything that religion failed to produce in and through me. The gospel is such good news!

I know far too well how focusing on sin spoils the party!

You are loved! And it has nothing to do with your behavior or performance! There are no hoops you “must” jump through to have intimacy with your Father! He’s already jumped through them all! All there is are lies that need to be exposed and renounced! No more running and hiding.

So let the sun shine in! Face it with a grin!

Open up your heart and let the sun shine in!

For you bring me a continual revelation of resurrection life, 
the path to the bliss that brings me face-to-face with you.
(Psalm 16:11)

Mary and I are living the dream! Join in!

Love you

Need / Love

Need is the final singular truth by which our world operates. Humanity exists within the confines of need. We trade in the currency of need. Need is the foundational structure of our DNA. It’s the defining core value of our very existence.
