So to continue with some thoughts that I’d like to make sure get emphasized while I still have time to emphasize them … I’d like to add a common error that we can fall into as Christians, and that is to be too concerned about sin. Let’s remember that avoiding sin is not the end, the purpose, the goal of our faith. Rather, avoiding sin is a means to an end. The purpose of our faith is union with Jesus. Avoiding sin is of course necessary for this, but this is also only the beginning. It is literally the least we can do in this endeavor to be one with our Creator. It is only the first step. So let’s put together some certitudes taught to us by our faith, and then we will see what this means for avoiding sin without fear.
