Embracing sin

There is harmony and disharmony alike. There is lovingkindness and there is murder. None of us is stranger to any of it. Perhaps this is the underlying truth of the concept of sin—that we have all of this part and parcel of who we are as people? Then our task is not to run from “sin” but to embrace it and use it all for good. All things work together for good for those who love life. Conversely, All things work together for evil for those who love evil? Even these are to be loved, for love is stronger than evil. It appears to me that the message of the Bible writers, taken as a whole, is one of caring and loving and being together in community. Community, coming together is the essence of love.
