"THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE..." (John 8:32). When we don't take RESPONSIBILITY for our sin, we are actually BLAMING GOD for the consequences of our sin. Every time we reject personal RESPONSIBILITY, we reject TRUTH, we reject GOD. Do we really not seek the TRUTH OF GOD because then we would see the TRUTH ABOUT OURSELVES? The world is not what we want it to be; and yet it is the reflection of who WE ARE WILLING TO BE. Psalm 51:3, "...I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me." What a beautiful, TRUTHFUL statement where we take RESPONSIBILITY for our sin, and set GOD FREE. Don't we understand that unless we take RESPONSIBILITY for our sin and repent, we CONTINUE TO BLAME GOD FOR OUR SIN'S CONSEQUENCES? Can we even "imagine" the power, creativity, influence, sensitivity, and love if we would just be RESPONSIBLE for our sin? We would be "so connected" to GOD that our real selves would NATURALLY BE RESPONSIBLE for everyone, we would NATURALLY LOVE everyone, we would reach out and HELP, and HEAL. THEN IN KNOWING THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD, WE KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT OURSELVES. AMEN!
