2018 12 09: It's Not My Fault

We can’t get rid of John the Baptist’s call to repentance and we shouldn’t try, but neither do we have to be afraid of it.  The experience we’ve had of false accusation and self-interested blame may give us every reason in the world to get defensive, to get our hackles up, to counter-punch and deny we’re at fault even a little.  But the God who revealed himself to us in Jesus Christ is a loving God, full of both grace and truth.
