What ever became of Sin?

Recently, I came across a book titled, “What ever became of Sin?” Written by a man named, “Karl Menninger” in 1973.
I went to the library today and found a copy. I sat down and read the first two chapters in the library. I came across something that was a real eye opener to me.

In 1953, President Eisenhower made his first proclamation. In it he made a reference to “Sin”. He borrowed the words from Abraham Lincoln in 1863.

“It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon.”

Wow! These were our Presidents.
This just goes to show us how far we have come. It puts it all into perspective.

May God send real men of God again. Those who stand up for God in the face of all odds. Not afraid to confront “Sin”. Not afraid to bring up “hell” or “repentance” either.

History tells the story.

    FYI. The only sin that can be repented of to obey the Acts 2:38 command is the one sin of Jesus’ murder. This command was added so that the tresspass of Jesus’ murder would be the one sin all men are responsible to have the faith to repent of to save themselves by. Rom. 5:20 & Gen. 9:5bNIV.

    I don’t believe I follow your comment, “The only sin”.
    Our sins and those of all mankind put Jesus on the cross. That is why God offered Him up. He was and is the only sacrifice for all sin.

    Yes it was a sin to murder Jesus, no doubt. And not only were the Jews responsible, but we too.

    All sin is atoned for by His blood.
    Praise Him!

    Thanks for stopping by,
    Grace to you,
    Richard
