WE’VE GOT SIN RIGHT HERE IN RIVER CITY!!!
I’ve come to see that sin (harmartia) — missing the mark of seeing who God is and we really are — God’s unconditional Love, Grace, Goodness, inclusion, acceptance of all, and pure light with no trace of darkness — is what organized religion does — it SINS by telling us we have not lived up to their opinion of what God “demands,” it SINS by telling us we are depraved, deplorable, despicable “sinners” barely saved by grace and God can only tolerate us because our wormy self is covered with Jesus’ blood, therefore He can’t see the real us. THAT is SIN of the worst kind. Come to think of it, that’s what Jesus called out the Pharisees for! ~Paul Gray
