COMMENTER:” I really listened to this on grace. I was very good. I am going out to get a notebook and listen again.
Question. I sin every day even with a thought. I don’t believe anyone is sinless free. We sin every day but God forgives us. This I am having trouble with .
Sinless (how) do you yourself not have a thought that is sin or an action.
Do you just ask for forgiveness? This I’m not sure I agree with.
I am going to listen again it is great what you spoke of grace. But we are human and God knows this, we just have to ask for forgiveness.”
VERLE: OK my friends, let’s have some thoughts from you. Are you sinless? If not is it OK for God to forgive you? Is He co-dependant and an enabler if He loves screwed up people?
I was moderating a group a few years ago which contained a young man who spent all his time building his muscles and practicing kick-boxing. He kept wanting my opinion and I would redirect him to asking the group first and then I promised to add my thoughts afterwards. He saw this as a putdown and flew into a rage and tried to kill me. The Lord gave me grace, and enough wind, to talk to him as he was strangling me and remind him that God did love him and so did I and he might want to pick another approach. He left off killing me and yelled, “Now see what you made me do!” and stormed out.
So, here I go again and I’m asking the “group” out there in blogland to try to answer the above question and I will post your thoughts and will probably have a few of my own.
