Sin Is Not Your Master
It seems like there is this thing in us that we can’t control. We might excuse it away by saying, “I just don’t know what I was thinking” or “I don’t know what go into me,” but that doesn’t seem to get us any closer to preventing us from doing it again.
In spite of what we’ve read, in spite of what we’ve been taught, in spite of what people have told us, we’ve haven’t been able to fix us. What if the solutions we’ve come up with can’t solve the problem because it’s the wrong problem?
The problem is, for some reason we just can’t seem to make ourselves do what we should and not do what we shouldn’t. It’s like we’re two different people. Maybe if we could discover what drives us we could fix those attitudes, those thoughts and actions, stop making excuses for ourselves and gain some traction in solving the problems in our lives.
After all we’ve been through—and put others through—maybe it would be wise to get a second opinion. After everything we’ve tried, maybe we would be open to a different diagnosis of the problem? There’s a lot at stake, so it’s worth a shot.
