Quote: Any contradiction that can get you to forget your true identity, innocence and worth, defeats you.

25 Sep

Religion over the years has majored on the subject of sin-consciousness.  The moment something goes wrong, guilt trips are empowered.  Simon’s response is surprising after he’d witnessed the teaching and ministry of Jesus… and then landed a catch that hePeterJesus could not claim any credit for!

“Depart from me Lord, for I am a sinful man.” 

When he felt pressed to give an account for the previous night’s toil with no success, he apparently felt a lot more familiar and comfortable with his own sinfulness!  Karma makes so much sense to a religion that makes its money out of paying and returning customers!

    “Karma makes so much sense to a religion that makes its money out of paying and returning customers!” Oh, that’s such a good line. How true! 🙂

      Said another way, “Religion thrives on repeat customer business!” Preaching sin consciousness keeps law-based religion alive.
      But we’ve traded in that old business model for His righteousness consciousness. Sets us all free. Might shake up the status quo of religion businesses but the people are finding their real identity.
