Sinner

Was The Son Of God A Sinner?

BY MARTIN LUTHER

Paul does not say that Christ was made a curse for Himself. The accent is on the two words “for us.” Christ is personally innocent. Personally, He did not deserve to be hanged for any crime of His own doing. But because Christ took the place of others who were sinners, He was hanged like any other transgressor.

God's Love Song Of Salvation

BY DONAVON RILEY

If we get past Sunday School moralizing what do we discover in the Old Testament? We read about remarkably immoral people loved by God.

The Saddest Words Ever Spoken to a Sinner

BY CHAD BIRD

Jesus said it would have been better for this man not to have been born. Shocking words, sad words. But they are not the saddest words in Scripture.
This man, Judas, said to the religious leaders that, for a pocketful of coins, he would betray his rabbi. Loveless words, sad words. But still they are not the saddest words in Scripture.

SINNERS, WRETCHES AND POND SCUM

BY BONNIE PETROSCHUK

In response to one of my recent posts on social media, a beloved agnostic friend of mine commented, in part, “What’s with all you religious folk feeling like you’re sinners, wretches, pond scum, broken, fallen, in need of saving, and just plain terrible creatures…

We Are All the Duggars

BY CHAD BIRD & DANIEL EMERY PRICE

Leo Tolstoy famously wrote, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The problem is that I’ve yet to meet a family that fits into Tolstoy’s tidy categories of “happy” and “unhappy.” The reality is far messier.
