How Do You Feel About Sin?
Do you think it exists?
I’m sure you have heard the word “Sin”, what does it mean?
Throughout life we do things that are imperfect, what is at the core of these imperfections? These are questions that most people don’t want to contemplate, we take life at face value which means if we can’t see it we don’t factor it into our lives.
Religion is Man’s Creation
Go through the phone book and look under Religion, you will see hundreds of different religions listed, this was created by man.
What’s important is discovering the truth about what makes us tick, even more insightful is what makes us tick the wrong way.
Before the discovery of electricity do you think electricity did not exist? Electricity had to exist for someone to discover it, how about air? Air had to exist before scientist labeled it and defined it as we know it today. So, how about SIN?
Who Created Sin?
Trying to answer this question is like trying to explain love.
Everybody has a different interpretation of it and even though love and sin are at opposite ends of the spectrum both subjects create different opinions.
It’s important to gain a basic understanding of something to embrace it, but when you spend to much time dissecting it this becomes a waste of time, time which you could use to make things better.
I believe sin exists, this is based on experiences I have gone through. Not that I had any paranormal experiences, but because I allowed negative thoughts to dictate actions that I regretted. The questions raised were: Where did these thoughts come from? Why did they create destructive emotional behavior? Why did I repeat them?
All of this makes for interesting discussion, but what really matters is learning and then applying what you learn to improve your life.
I read an article which stated “The human is a creature, right from birth, that has a negative bias”, I believe this is true.
The world is filled with negativity, just turn on the news and listen to how many times people say THEY CAN’T, this might give us a clue into why we do the things we do.
So, why not label this event as SIN, sin and negativity, sin is much easier to spell and say.
If you read my about page you will see how I waded through years of negativity and at times even became comfortable with the results. But in the end sin, or whatever you believe, doesn’t provide a happy ending.
A Few Things About God
Again, did man create this label called GOD? Does it really matter?
When I look into the sky at night and view the vastness of space, and beyond, it becomes harder and harder not to believe that there is some sort of GOD or energy out there that is much more superior than us. It raises the age old question, “Who did all that?”
Whatever the case is there are some insightful quotes found in the bible that have profound benefits in our lives, some are: “Know thy Enemy” – “Guard your Mind” – “Protect your Thoughts” – “Reject the Enemy”.
In these quotes you notice the word ENEMY, this means there is something out there which is against us.
The problem is the ENEMY in this case is not a physical being. The enemy comes in the form of thoughts and emotions.
Sin Has an Agenda
Lets again label these negative thoughts as sin. Sin has three objectives:
- It does not discriminate
- It wants to go undetected
- It’s mission is destruction for you and your surroundings
Areas Sin Attacks
- Material Possessions
- Emotions (anger,hate,stress)
For most people sin hurts. This is due to the fact that we have a conscience and our conscience kicks in when we do wrong things.
For a lot of us this is a problem because it forces us to confront ourselves, it forces us to confess that we are wrong and nobody wants to admit that.
Have you ever had people who dominated you? They would step all over you and you felt helpless? The fact is you allow this to happen.
This is what I mean by taking responsibility. Who the hell cares what others say or think about you, people talk all the time. In fact, people take pleasure in talking others down because this lifts them up, this is marked in the category of Control.
Whatever your problems are you can fix them by taking back control. This means taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions, a lot of people don’t want to do this and therein is where the problem lies. I was the biggest offender to this claim, so I know of what I speak. I know it’s not easy to reverse trends, but if your life sucks, then this is the way to unsuck it.
Start the Healing Process Now!
The bottom line is if you’re not happy and you are doing things but don’t know why, then consider the type of signals you’re letting into your mind.
We get complaisant, it becomes a matter of fact when we react certain ways. As much as I have experienced, as much as I write about the reality of sin, I still find myself having to be on guard because sin just doesn’t give up. I guess it has no other choice, it’s programmed to do what it does.
God tells us “Sin Destroys“, some of us experience this first hand and others are wise enough to protect their minds without having to experience it. If you hate the path you’re on, if you do things you don’t understand and you’re just tired of spinning your wheels, then think about what you have read here and start the healing process NOW!
Next time you’re out in the yard at night, look up in the sky and contemplate how this happened. Once you realize how we are a part of and not the center of what was created, a lot of what you struggle with daily becomes more insignificant.
This is not to ignore that problems don’t exist, this only points out that sin, or whatever you believe, uses us to make mole hills into mountains.
Don’t you think that this negativity (sin) if it could would just knock us off right from the start? It can’t and this tells you we allow it to do what it does.
Cutoff the flow of venom to your mind, take back control and regain your happiness – this is the way it was meant to be .
Movies can impact our thoughts. Take a look on the right sidebar for some I have selected for you.
The Next Step
The next step is really yours. You are in control of solutions and what happens going forward.
I know this can be a big responsibility for you, so take it in steps. Being overwhelmed trying to change to many things at once can be a detriment to healing. Little steps equal big strides.
Trying doesn’t always produce desired results right away, but trying keeps you on a course of learning and learning keeps you trying, this is a cycle sin hates, but you will love it.
I know the struggles, I also know there are answers. It’s amazing how the more you search for answers the more you find. Maybe it’s not that amazing when you think about it, it’s just a matter of doing it.
