Sin is an inherent condition of everyone born (except Christ) (Romans 3:23), a condition that we own but cannot sell or give away. It is just there affecting every aspect of human existence in a bad way like rot in an orange, an apple, and a pomegranate. God hates sin, is not affected by sin, and is fully capable of not only dealing with it but eliminating it and the damage it causes (Romans 6:10).
The reason God hates sin is multitudinous. His solution to sin is transitional and liberating. It is based on love. It is beyond ultimate power. It is simple. It is pure. It is wonderful. It is eternal. It is free. It is one-sided conducted and one-sided received. God’s solution to amends for sin is Christ Jesus, his one and only Son (Hebrews 9:26-28). Sin’s amends through Jesus’ blood is best defined by emotion.
“Fools mock at making amends for sin.” Why? I know why. Does the fool know why? Mocking liberating amends is folly to the upright who know God’s goodwill. I shed tears for those who mock amends for sin because they are rejecting life.
“He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:10) “Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43) Last night I had a vision, a dream before I awoke, one that I had before. My graduation is at hand. I am getting ready to leave for the commencement with my classmates. “Goodwill (favor, forgiveness, a pleasing thing) is found among the upright.”
