Good Friday’s Not For Good People

Good people don’t need a Good Friday Savior. They’re okay on their own. Bad people need a Good Friday Savior. “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me a sinner.”

If nothing is morally wrong, if nothing is a sin, then why do we need the forgiveness offered by Good Friday?
If sin still exists, what’s wrong with stating that fact, and encouraging those caught in sin’s bondage to seek to be forgiven and to be set free from their sins?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
