Another great sermon this Sunday. One insight that was so true of me – Christians (me) don’t practice repentance. We practice sin management. Our idea of repentance is being sorry for it and trying not to again. But our pastor reminded us, that’s not how it’s presented in the Bible. The whole cutting off your hand/eye/foot thing. That’s radical. Means changing the things you do, see, go to if it leads you to sin. I dunno, his “sin management” line just really hit me. That’s 100% what I do. I dunno, I think this another one of those I’m sad I’ve been Christian so long things. I think I start to forget how radical the gospel is. But yeah, the approach to repentance in the Bible is far more radical than I’ve been treating it, I think.
