Have All Sinners Died?

No! because I am sitting at my computer right now. I confess that I am a sinner who is saved by Grace and that Grace is Christ. I ask that question because I don't understand why the message that sin keeps us from God. And the message is not getting out. So, if sin is not preached against from the pulpit on Sunday morning do that mean its no longer in the world ? You know we live in a culture where the concept of sin is the violation of the ten commandments. Even then we tend to think of murder and adultery as the "major" sins compared with lying, cursing or idolatry. We cannot escape our failure to be righteous in our own strength. This is by God's design, because only when we understand our weakness will we consider relying on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. God wants us to recognize our sins even us who have not murdered or committed adultery but have lied or worshiped idols like money. Sin in any form distance us from God. Question? Do Sin need to be address from the pulpit on Sunday morning? If we don't know better we can't possible do better.7/19/2008
