The mind swims from so many words
Debating the role of Sin in life
Why is God angry with us?
Are we guilty for the sin of our ancestors?
What is Sin that it makes God so angry?
If we are worthless, why are we worth saving?
What is the balance of wrath and love?
Death seems rather permanent
Hearing the talk there was a question:
“Does God have an anger problem?”
Is God angry with humanity because one man sinned?
Does one trespass create such hatred?
Talking sin, there was no talk of personal sin!
So many words about Adam, none about self
Talk of salvation from Hell in the afterlife
No talk about salvation on Earth.
So many seem out of control
Even preachers steal
So many preachers have raped
Sin destroying the community
A man speaks unkindly to his wife
Words spoken thoughtlessly
Words undeserved, for the man judges without cause
Only forgiveness can preserve the relationship
Reputations are damaged
Relationships are broken
Sin destroying communities
Sin is so very immediate
We are out of control — it destroys life
Even when ashamed, we live in sin
We are out of control, and need God’s help for transformation
We debate another’s Sin, ignoring their own
Ignoring that our relationships are dying
We are out of control, destroying ourselves and others
Yet, we seek a solution to God’s anger problem
Perhaps the first step is admitting we have a problem
Perhaps we need to learn Salvation from the addict.
