99- What is Sin?

 

The subject of sin is one that makes most people unplug, unsubscribe or disconnect. I hope you don’t today. In this podcast and post I am not going where you probably think I am. Instead I will explain how the concept of sin is a universal understanding and all systems and religions have some plan for dealing with sin. Of course the solution we choose has everything to do with the definition we use. I will introduce a surprisingly paradoxical solution that is often missed by modern Christianity which promotes a sin management system. I will prove how sin is the opposite of faith and as such the solution is not limited to a particular belief, but faith. Sin, in the end, is the design of love so that we will neither miss God nor our purpose in the world.

83- Liberation despite Sin

 

Easter is the time where the Jesus-O-Meter is pegged into the red zone. Pastors focus on the historical aspects of Jesus story in order to elevate substitutionary atonement. We’re told that if we believe, we will be free from our sin. Yet our sins remain. Is it possible that the church has made Easter about the means and not about its purpose? In this podcast and post I will show that the real purpose of Easter is not to remove sin, but to liberate us from the countless systems that imprison us despite our sin.
