“The only ground on which God can forgive our sin and reinstate us to His favor is through the Cross of Christ. There is no other way! To base our forgiveness on any other ground is unconscious blasphemy. ” — My Utmost For His Highest
compare with “God is so kind and loving that He will forgive us all the time.” it’s sad how people in their earnest desire to lead as many souls back to the Lord say half-truths like this.
but i bet it often works. why? because everyday we face criticism, condescension, rejection, and competition — too much stress and unhappiness 24/7, that it is always a breath of fresh air knowing that we have Christ, the Lord of all, who accepts us unconditionally. so aren’t we all happy to come back to an eager and love-hungry God?
go ahead and think what you want of Him because God prefers your honesty any time. trust that He alone understands most where you are coming from. just don’t undermine the cost He had to pay to be this positive and open to you again.
