I found this piece a few days ago and thought I should share. God bless you
If God loves us so much that he forgives all our sins then we might as well keep on sinning.” A passing remark that I have heard a few different times but a very false one. We, Christians, like to assume that our faith is our own. Which our faith is very personal but our own faith directly affects others around us for the better or the worse. The world privatizes not only pocketbooks and sex, but our faith as well. This privatization can lead to making God into a vending machine. We put in a dollar, then choose our favorite refreshment. But our faith isn’t about our desires or what we get out of our faith. Our faith is centered on Jesus Christ and denial of self.
