Incarnation 4

“I’m reminded of someone who once said to me, ‘Why do Christians spend so much time talking about sin?’ For some people, it feels like sin is the only thing they hear about in church. I want to be clear: if all you ever hear about in church on Sunday is sin, you’re probably in the wrong church. But if you never hear about sin in church, you may also be at the wrong church. The good news of Jesus is not that we’re sinners, but that he is our Savior. But we can’t appreciate his role as Savior if we don’t know we need to be saved.” —Adam Hamilton, Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas (pages 51–52)

 

How would you respond to someone who asked, “Why do Christians spend so much time talking about sin?”
