You know … guilt gets quite the bad rap. And “sin”? Hooo-boy! ... don’t even bring THAT one up. That’ll make you persona non grata even in many Christian circles these days. But what IS sin? ... that bugaboo word that even Christians in our day often disdain to utter? It is a short sharp word often ridiculed … yet certainly not by Jesus and the apostles, who spoke of sin often.

Predictably, there were myriad reactions over the Charlottesville protests and events.

He goes on to say that even the states contradict the
