So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.(Romans 8:1, NLT)
Guilt is the opposite of clear moral sense. Guilt prevents the human mind from looking beyond the realm of faults. The man comes to believe he is merely a specimen of irresponsibility. To him, he cannot do anything decent. The more he sees his wrongdoing the more he plunges into the depth of guilt.
We are Christians, saved and delivered from our past lifetimes. Simply we are humans. We’re human, flesh and blood. We can breathe. Above all, we are imperfect creatures. God is the sole perfect Sovereignty.
Christ says we are forgiven when we recognise our wrongs and confess them, and ask for pardon.
Withal, we say, “no Lord, my sins are too much to be forgiven.” In other words, we prefer to contradict what Jesus said. We choose to run, from the presence of Jehovah to embrace the falsehood of guilt conscience.
By so doing we incur sicknesses, failure, poverty, mental disorder, failed marriage, disobeying children, fatigue, untimely death, stagnation and et cetera. It may not sound legitimate to anyone reading this post. Nevertheless, I must emphasize that all of the above negativities occurs as result of personal guilt.
Do we recognize that the virtues have seed and that they grow? If we admit that life has two sides; good and bad. If we think that the opposite of white is black, then we are getting the result. Consider for instance, happy people live better. Those who smile a lot, maintain their youthfulness and beauty. It the likewise for those that rather stay unhappy.
Aside from the above/mentioned negativities, guilt suppress happiness. It brings depression, suicidal risks and attempt. It questions the Bible as well as the existence of God.
Thus how can we erase guilt? By interpreting the words of God back to ourselves. We must in personal reaffirm our allegiance to God and there’s no better way to get this done except going back to the Bible. If God says we are free from guilt, then we are and there’s no ground for us to contradict His words.
