Do you sin against God or man?
I saw this video and did not agree with it.
If I sin, I think I sin against another human. Not against God. Against his law of course, or to be more specific, against the laws that men have attributed to God, but not against God.
This clip ignores the human victim altogether as if the victim has no right to feel offended and also have no responsibility to forgive the offender.
I find it rather droll that we are supposed to see God as the victim of all our sins.
If you were to visualize, for instance, God being the victim of all Gay sins, well you see what I mean.
Rather a startling picture right?
Sin also brings up the topic of forgiveness.
If you or I forgive a sin done against us, is there any reason for the sinner to kowtow to God for more forgiveness?
The sin, once forgiven by you or I is, well, forgiven. What exactly is God forgiving. The sin has been annulled by our forgiveness so God forgiving it is rather superfluous and in reality, if at the pearly gates, God were to seek to punish a forgiven sin then one could make a case that God is unjust.
Is God sticking his nose where it is not required in the case of saying we sin against him and in our seeking forgiveness for a forgiven sin?
