The Sins We LoveJune 18, 2015
The sins we hate are also the sins we love because they are also the ones we are too familiar with. They are like old dreaded friends of a schizophrenic. We know they aren’t right, yet we can’t help but hang out with them. Sometimes it gets so bad that we end up destroying the relationships that mean the most to us, especially with God. While these videos are meant for comedy, they still touch on the essence of what it’s like to struggle with temptation, and have it dominate you.
The world will tell us there is freedom in being autonomous, sustaining some invented reality for ourselves, and reaching our supposed self-actualization through others making much of us. But this is all a lie. There is real freedom in being set free from our sin. Especially the sin we love.
How long will I slide?
Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Turn me off, leave me on the other side
I yell and tell it that it’s not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down, and then it’s born again
