"Good" At Repentance :


An excellent article from Jon Gleason my friend and Pastor of Glenrothes Baptist Church over at Mind Renewers on repentance :
 
Included are some reasons for sinful behaviour listed below:

  • What I’m doing isn’t wrong.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but I can’t help it.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but it isn’t THAT bad.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but I can get away with it.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but my circumstances are special.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but God will let me off because of other good stuff I’ve done.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but God doesn’t care because He loves me.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but I want to do it anyway, so I’m going to.
  • What I’m doing is wrong, but no one can tell me what to do.
  • etc.
This kind of thinking always lies behind sinful actions.  A person may not consciously be thinking these things, but these are the kind of thoughts that drive sinful behaviour...
