"It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick...for I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." Matthew 9:12b, 13b
One of the most unpopular topics to be written about or spoken of is that of sin. When Peter and John spoke before the Sanhedrin and addressed them concerning their sin that had crucified the Saviour, Peter and John's very lives were on the line. When John the Baptist confronted King Herod regarding immorality with his brother's wife, John was beheaded. Time and again in John Wesley's journal (the great evangelist of England) you'll read that he preached about sin and our need to repent only to be banned from preaching again at that location. Why is it that man reacts so strongly to this subject? Is it because he is guilty?

Most of us think of ourselves as "basically good" people. This is especially true if we have been a successful father or mother, a good, law-abiding citizen, or in general, a helpful member of society. Unfortunately, according to the Bible this is false thinking and not at all how God sees us.
