Very well done! We do indeed serve a risen Christ. No more condemnation.
Good point! Well written too.
Boy, this one hit the nail on the...uh scuse me. Removed the nail from our Savior. Good job!

Very good. We are now free from the shame which brings condemnation, rather experiencing godly sorrow which brings repentance.
How true that is! We do serve a risen Lord and the evangelist in your story sure missed the mark, didn't he? Good piece. Yours in Christ

Wow, did your story take me back. I, too, have squirmed in my pew as an evangelist continued making an appeal, leaving the sense that if you don't walk that aisle you are condemned, every single one that dares remain in their seat. I call it a brow-beating invitation. I can't picture our Lord using that approach. But you looked beyond the zeal of the preacher to get "results" to the staggering truth that we serve a risen Savior! Sometimes I get the feeling the preacher is angry at the sheep instead of the devil.

Bravo! I too was one of few "left standing" steadfast in my faith - but as a young person it's just not done! Well done and well written!

WOW! very powerful!!!!!
Very well done. I have endured tirades like the one you describe here. Praise God, He is alive...He is no longer crucified. He is restored. And we are restored in Him.

Ditto! Life is about balance, isn't it. To be aware of our sin but also, and too often forgotten, to be aware of our highly exalted status as forgiven and made new.
