At times I do, yes. Worse even some of these sins are stupid and repetitive and I ought to know and do better. Especially it seems every time I get over one or two, another one that was on the back pages comes to the fore. We have ALL sinned and fallen short of The Creator's glory, which is why we have the right by experience to point out where WE are all going wrong. Why should we try to save ourselves only? Is it a desperate dash to the gates of The Kingdom of The Most High, every man for himself? A melee? A human stampede?2) You said u still sin every day. I admire the honesty and understand u make an effort not to. But my question is do you view your own sins with the same revulsion as you do homosexuality and also is it fair to expect people not in our faith not to sin when they dont even view it as a sin as we ourselves still sin? Especially since we have been released from our sinful natures, know better, and have God to help us and they do not? Or again do you think we would be better off focusing on our own issues first?
I ask you as a brother and sincerely (T) PEACE
The difference is that I have given all my sins to and laid them upon the very broad and capable shoulders of our Savior (Yashua Ha Mashiach, who some for whatever reason continue to call Jesus). It is because I know that of my own effort I would be flung into the flaming abyss of the Nul Void why I lean on His help. No man is an island, no man stands alone. I have learned to seek His help and counsel and teach that all men should seek teh same, or persih on their own arrogant and futile efforts or lack thereof. We have little time to focus on every single thing, but if we could all lay pride aside and look into ourselves and repent of sins and help others do the same, then I believe, Yahweh (barack be He) will smile upon us and say, Well Done! My good and faithful Servant.
Thanks for the excellent questions Steve. I hope my answers were satisfactory.
