Me? Sin?

excuse me please
i did not mean. . .
and it is not
as it would seem
for what I did
or what I said
i’ll lose no sleep
when on my bed
i’m not to blame
as you can see
no absolutes
were taught to me
you call it wrong
but i’m unswayed
it only needs
a small band aid
on and on
excuses roll
oblivious as
it takes its toll
yet sin is real
ingrained within
you can’t escape
it in the end
though you deny
the bad result
when you do wrong. . .

~JD Collier

“Sin, I repeat, in addition to anything else it may be, is always an act of wrong judgment. To commit a sin a man must for the moment believe that things are different from what they really are; he must confound values; he must see the moral universe out of focus; he must accept a lie as truth and see truth as a lie; he must ignore the signs on the highway and drive with his eyes shut; he must act as if he had no soul and was not accountable for his moral choices.”

– A.W. Tozer, Man, The Dwelling Place of God

Rom 3:23
“all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
Rom 6:23
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
