God's redeeming love

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

Sin isn’t a big topic in popular culture these days, as reality TV shows feature young adults with no visible means of support indulging in vast amounts of alcohol-related activities, sexual romps, and selfish betrayals. They rarely tell of the sad consequences that normally follow that kind of lifestyle. But then, this is entertainment, not everyday life, right?

Still, the example these programs set makes it hard for some of the young people I know to come to grips with the concept of sin. In fact, for most of them, the word sinner may be painfully old fashioned. That’s at least partly because everyone identifies sinner with helplessness and condemnation.
