Sin

"Good Friday"

Edmund Brooks

Its seems a little backwards that "Good Friday", a day of absolutely pain and torture, is seen as such a blessing. In reality, it was Earth's saddest day, but it marked the start of our salvation, which is why we take time to witness Christ's Passion. However, this gift came at a tremendous cost, one of which caused pain physically, emotionally, and spiritually, that only the Perfect Son could pay.

Escape: "Betrayal"

Randy Christian

Betrayal is a strong word, and it evokes strong emotion in the person who feels betrayed.  Jonah felt betrayed by God—and by God’s very nature.  Yet it was Jonah who betrayed God.  Like Jonah we tend to betray God and then try to lay the blame on God Himself.  But like Jonah, God doesn’t respond in kind to our betrayal.
