Struggling with ‘sin’ & ‘guilt’ & ‘shame’ is really, really, REALLY not on.
And yet so many people do.
Yes – there is ‘responsibility’ & ‘God’s will” & ‘right and wrong’, ‘good and bad’ and all of that.
Sometimes the ‘right & wrong’ people are so prescriptive about is just misplaced – having to do more with their own needs & wants than with reality.
God is no bully.
He doesn’t drive & manipulate people with fear, making us slaves who do stuff hoping to escape some punishment.
He has one need – and that is to share life with me (or you).
That’s what, I believe, this earth and life on it, is about.
That’s why Jesus ‘is’.
Perhaps we can put the ‘guilt’ aside for ‘just a moment’ – and see what he’s done, just so that we may ‘re-connect’ and ‘re-late’.
