HONEST MEN: Guilty ... As Charged!




If The Load Of Sin
Is Off Your Back
Why Are You Still Bending?!



I Have A Friend
Who Is My Companion!
I Have For A Champion
He Who Is My God!
I Have The Savior
Who Is My Redeemer
AND
The Giver Of My Life
Is My Rock
Against My Accuser
The Foul-Minded Fraud!

IF
We, As Honest Men
Would Daily Think Upon The Divine Sacrifice
We Would Not Walk Around Behaving
Like Angry Bloodsucking Hog Lice!

We Would Say 
- Without Fear Of Contradiction -
With All Power And Might
That We Are Legitimate Children
Of The Great King
BUT
Sorry To Say
It Is Oft Quite Plain
That We Do Not Know
The One
Of Whom We Are Speaking!

I, Myself
IF 
I Am Honest 
This Day Must Utter:

Guilty ... As Charged!

For I, Too
Have Often Forgotten My New Pedigree
AND
Have Gladly Permitted
The Old Man
To Triumphantly Lead 
AND
Squeeze Me
Making Feel Yesterday's Shed Load!

I Agree With You
For I Am Guilty Of That, Too
But What Do You Offer Up
For A Solution?!

In All Honesty
I Say That We Could All Do
With A Daily Dose Of
I Am Thine, Oh, Lord! 
And A Daily Dose
Of Confess And Repent
BUT
All Done Without It Being A Hair Shirt
AND
Walking About Looking Grieved
AND
Being Morose!

Really?!
Why Do You Say That!

If You Are Happy
For Free Salvation
Praise The Lord!

Hallelujah!

If You Have Accepted
The Gift
Walk About In The Wrapping!

Thank You, Jesus!

The Living Word Says ...!
The Living Word Says
That All Men Sin
AND
All Men Sin
By Thought
By Word
By Deed
AND
Paul The Apostle
Said That He
- A Totally Surrendered
Soldier For Christ -
Died Daily
For He Wanted Nothing Between His Soul
AND
His Savior!
He Lived For His Lord
AND
Everything Else
Was ... Dung!

I Hear That!

Can You Imagine
A Man Like That
Who Had Met The Savior
AND
Had Committed His Life
Saying:

The Thing I Should Do I Don't
And The Thing I Shouldn't Do I Do?!

And Exclaiming:

Oh, Wretched Man That I Am!

Believe You Me
I Can Totally Relate!

I Am Right There With You!
You Know
There Was Much
- And Still Is -
In The Idea Of
The Daily Sacrifice
BUT
Without All The Blood
AND
The Burnings!

Type Met Antitype
In The Ultimate Sacrifice 
On The Cruel Cross
Which Sacrifice
Pays
For Our Confession And Repentance
Giving Us The Free Offer Of Salvation!

I Don't Understand ...!

Okay!
Would You Crucify Christ Afresh?!

Whaaat?!
What For?!
No!
Who Would Do Such A Thing?!

You!
Me?!

Me!
You?!Yes ... Us!

But, How?!

You Are Forgetting Already!
By Thought!
By Word!
By Deed!

Let's Come From A Different Direction:

What Is Sin?

Sin Is The Transgression Of God's Law!

What Did Jesus Come To Do?!

To Die For Our Sin - Once For All!
To Reconcile Us To The Father!

What Put Christ On The Cross?

God's Love For Sinners!

Who Is A Sinner?

I I Am Am!!

Man, We Really Need To Change!

Yes, We Do!
We Really, Really, Need To Up Our Game!

We Need To Look Up!

IF
Salvation Is Free!
Pardon For Sin Is Free!
Faith Is Free!
Grace Is Free!
Mercy Is Free!
And
Heaven Is Free!
And
You Have Accepted The Gift
DROP THE EXCESS BAGGAGE
And
Walk In The Confidence Of Christ
For
You Are Free Indeed!
