People Think Sin is Better Than Jesus: What Is Their Problem?

More and more every day, it's making more sense to me.

The goodness of God really does indeed lead us to repentence (Romans 2:4).

Where do people get this idea from, that sin is better? That sinning is better?

Where do people get this nutty, foolish idea that perversions on every level is better than the good that God gives us?

"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:11)

We have so many people, who preach that we must lay down the law on everyone. If we don't make people afraid of God, then they won't come to Him.

They forget that He is actually coming to us, seeking us out! The three parables in Luke 15 outline how much He rejoices when He finds us! It's not us finding Him! He was not lost -- we were.

Think also about how God's unmerited favor teaches us about godliness! (Titus 2:11-14).

Jesus loves me--this I know--and this love transforms me!


Sin sucks. Sin is boring. Being in bondage to fleshly lusts is not fun, but rather it is quite painful.

If people do not find something better, they will settle for what they have.

Where can one find anything better than what Jesus is, and what He is doing for us?

"67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God." (John 6:67-69)

Where else can we find life? Where else is the life better? Nothing better than JESUS!
