Oh well . . .
J. D. Hatfield posted something the other day called You Are the Reason. A lot of people seem to think that to even mention sin is to scare up the old bogeyman of judgementalism. It completely works against the "life-coaching" type preaching (you know who I'm talking about!) that thrives on telling people how absolutely incredible they are. Hatfield, on the other hand, says this:
It is your sin that has damned mankind. You are the reason, you are the one who has sinned, and you are the reason the entire universe is on a collision course with hell and destruction. Now you aren’t the only one who has ever sinned, we all have, but your sin alone is enough to cause all this trouble. That is how destructive sin is. It ruins perfection.How very unencouraging! But read the whole post to find out where the real encouragement lies.
