The Big Contradiction

“Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, they reject the Bible because it contradicts them.” —Paul Harvey

“My truth” is just another way of saying “The real thing offends me.” Actually, the real thing saves you, and it’s plain as the print on the page.

Happy reading.

No matter sin gets redefined, it can’t unring the bell. Ignore it, offset it with good or call it something else, the roots of guilt remain like an impossibly stubborn weed. What can we do? Start here

“Father in heaven! Hold not our sins up against us but hold us up against our sins, so that the thought of Thee when it wakens in our soul…should not remind us of what we have committed but of what Thou didst forgive, not of how we went astray but of how Thou didst save us!” —Soren Kierkegaard

God’s grace has always been about what He did for us, not because we’re good, but because He’s God. It’s just the way He is.

That makes me worship.
