How to talk about sin?
I recently came across these descriptors of sin. Don't know the origin, but find them very helpful.
1. Something is wrong with the world, and maybe I'm part of it.
2. I'm in pain, and I inflict pain too.
3. I did it my way, and now I feel empty.
4. I have power, and now it has me.
Many lament to inability of our culture to blush. The traditional lists of convicting behaviors no longer convict. Some believe our task is to convince people of their sin in an effort to prepare them for good news. But I wonder if we simply are starting with the wrong lists. Perhaps we are beginning the conversation in the wrong place.
