The DNA of sin is selfishness. Sin is about wanting my way, in my own way, and in my time.
PAUL DAVID TRIPP
From Paul David Tripp's A Quest for More: Living for Something Bigger Than You. He is absolutely spot on. It would seem the soundtrack to a sinful life is appropriately Frank Sinatra's "I Did It My Way", which ends with words :
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
Yes, it was my way
Interestingly, Mr Sinatra's song is the most popular song played at British funerals according to the Daily Telegraph. We believe that we are now our own saviours. The Bible's message is that we all need salvation! Salvation from God and his impending wrathful judgement on the world. We are all only trial and only God can save us from Himself! Not money, abilities or religion! And certainly not ourselves!
