Do you feel worse when you sin on Good Friday, Easter, Christmas or even on a normal Sunday?
Do you restrain on “sinful” behavior or feel more guilty on certain days?
How about some examples: Do you go to “R” rated movies on Saturday and avoid them on Sunday? Would you go to that same movie on Good Friday or Easter? How about right after church?
That book that you are reading – would you take it on a church retreat? Sell it at the Church’s yard sale or mission fundraiser?
Would you party on a normal Friday but not on Good Friday? How would you feel about getting drunk at Easter dinner?
Does any of that matter? Is sin a sin whether it is on a Sunday or Saturday or on Good Friday instead of Black Friday? Why do we feel more guilty sinning in church than at home? Why do people apologize for swearing in front of a pastor or priest?
Is God keeping score and making penalties higher on certain days? On the other hand, if you feel guilty about watching a “dirty” movie on Sunday maybe you shouldn’t be watching it on Saturday either.
1 John 1:8-9 (NIV)
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
