Errant Nonsense

November 19, 2020

In my journey thus far, I spent some time with people who claimed to be completely, wholly, and totally done with sin.

I’ve also been able to be with people who taught me an ancient prayer. The long form goes, “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on a me, a sinner.”

Other versions abbreviate it to seven words: “Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

In its most distilled form it becomes simply, “Mercy!”

Pretty good place to start.

Especially in light of 1st John 1:8, which in the Message version says—

If we claim that we’re free of sin,

we’re only fooling ourselves.

A claim like that is errant nonsense.
