As Christians remember and talk about the execution of Jesus,
I think, we use the wrong preposition.
Instead of saying and believing that Jesus died for our sins,
I think we should say and believe that Jesus died because of our sins.
And, believing as I do that the Bible,
Including this story,
Is as much about now as it is about then
And as much about you and me as it is about them
How many of God’s children…
How many of God’s daughters and sons
Continue to die because of our sins?
