Pretty Simple

Life is pretty simple. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. (Acts 16:31) And yet, this pesky problem called "original sin" keeps making everything complicated. This pesky problem of twisting Scripture to say whatever you want it to say and in the end ignoring the basic principle of believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. Why, oh why do we do this? Probably because we don't believe in him.

Oftentimes, the person who protests the most or the loudest is oftentimes in the wrong. I've watched shows like CSI where the man who immediately asks for his lawyer is the guilty one. That's how it can tend to be in real life. If one's conscience is hurting them, i.e. when I disobey my parents, I'll oftentimes become cranky and irritable. I want to figure out how they are in the wrong. It's my natural fight response. The other response is flight. Run away and don't deal with things. But in the same situation, my conscience irks me. You see? Now life is getting complicated.

I complicate my life all the time. <_< ....
