We know who these sins are by the fruit which we bear. We know them by the good works in our lives, but we often miss the target because of their deep-seated anger and vanity.
We have sinned against our Lord most grievously, thinking we could get away with his absence; he abandoned us to the sufferings at hand.
“Jesus said to him, ‘Wilt thou, being evil, know this thing, that thou art evil?” (Genesis 3:6).
While we were yet sinners, Jesus said, “Let us go forth therefore to him without fear, knowing that he viewed our sins.” (Hebrews 10:27). The thought negligible to us, when considered in isolation, has a strong revelation: sinless.
But because of his suffering when our sins appeared before him for judgment, we should have the great revelation that if we were sinless, he would not have punished us.
But the thought trivializes the tremendous value of the blood of Jesus, who was made sin for us.
The Consciousness Of Your Own Karma
Therefore, with the consciousness of his own Karma, considering these two priceless gifts of God: universal forgiveness and personal pun austerity (the suffering of past life actions), what possible connection could he make between the one and the other?
Without this karmic connection, how do our actions fairly solve the problems they create for us? Does it not bake and roast the idea of guilt?
This is why we should see our sin before we create ok karma to go with it. Then, paradoxically, we can see our suffering be opportunities to generate the most benefit with what we have. The only perfect thing about a karmic scheme is the possibility of escape if that’s what we really wish to do. There is no restriction if you will.
But let’s go back to the idea of Sabbaths, to consider the two ideas of sin and repentance.
Sin is an abstract idea
To genuinely see that it is a deep-seated emotional or mental process, and not just a mental choice, we need to live it in the body and experience one of its manifestations, reflected in the external, superficial relationships that bring pleasure only upon us.
To truly learn what it is to sin, one must witness the process.
To witness the process is to participate in it. That is why the body is the stage, and the mind the scene, where the actions (sin) take place and are reflected.
But what is witnessed cannot be denied. What is solid is shown in the concrete. We sin when we forget the infinite existence of what is.
Sin results in the reflective, dualistic feelings of guilt and shame, which conspire to produce restlessness and confusion since we increasingly identify with negative feelings.
But when we have seen into the secret there, we see that sin only has one face: it is an action with unknown consequences. We sin because we know the infinite in- pregnant truth of what it is; without that knowledge, we would not sin.
Sin is the action itself, whether it occurs accidentally or in Act. Thus, if we take part in the game, we stand to gain the individual potencies inherent in the sin because we cannot deny the existence of its power.
This realization automatically changes the way we view the situation.
The game is being played! Sin is not an abstract idea. Sin is the specific design for Contemporary sin.
Therefore, the Easter Proverb (iii) declares “it is a sin to be persuaded”. to be persuaded of the sin, “no one”:
Consequently, the Proverb asks “Then why are you defiled?” (v. 5) This question is intended to create a certain curiosity.
It is a call to reason, to think. The Proverb’s reasoning is sound, for it points to reality, and to acknowledge this truth, one must think.
The inquiry continues with a sentence that has no answer: “For with what has this holiest day of rest been esteemed.” (v. 6) In other words said, “The traditional on Sunday mornings had been considered a decent People to beset with grief‘.
So it would seem that the sinner’s inertia of routine is not in question.
The second idea to consider is that it is not the action of a sinful temperament that causes us to forget to be sorry.
Here, it’s the amnesia of the sin that keeps us from God’s presence. To be sure, this is not the anchor to the Christian walk
