Sometimes we need a reality check as theologians. Why is it that we operate one way in life while approaching theology from ideas absurd in light of reality? We are told that everyone sins due to ones nature, and that sin is unavoidable in our lives. But how do we live? Say our child came in and told us that they had just committed a sin, like stealing or robbing a bank. Would anyone on the list coddle them by saying ‘everyone does it.’ ‘You could not do otherwise for your nature controls what you do.’ ‘Regardless of your sin, God ordained it for His glory.’ Just wondering.
