mistake VS red handed rebellion
I was listening to a worship song today and I heard the singer talking about his mistakes. I realized that in a lot of Christian songs and teaching the word mistake is prevalent – instead of sin and rebellion. It isn’t an issue of rhyming either. I think a lot of people will easier admit they “oops made a mistake- sorry God “. Problem is – what they did 9 times out of 10 was a conscious rebellious stance – and needs to be accounted as such. After all – we don’t really accidentally lie cheat and steal do we? Sadly – when we confess mistakes instead of rebellion and sin our healing is partial too – we miss the truth of our action.
