The Absurdity Of Sin


The hopes of the godly result in happiness, but the expectations of the wicked come to nothing.

~Proverbs 10:28, NLT


A life lived without Christ will end in futility

~Timothy Keller

You’ve heard me say that SIN IS STUPID but today I offer an new adjective; SIN IS ABSURD. I looked up the definition of absurd and this is what I found … wildly unreasonable, illogical, or inappropriate. Think about it folks, it does not make sense to sin. Sin always produces negative consequences and the end result is death. The prodigal didn’t figure this out until he hit rock bottom. He hit bottom when he found himself {a Jew} feeding pigs. Had he known our language, he might have said, This is absurd, what was I thinking? My fathers servants have plenty to eat: what possessed me to leave the presence of my father. This is crazy, totally illogical, I am going home.” This kid left home because he was convinced that he could find happiness and fulfillment a part from his father. He was wrong and so are the millions who leave Christ out of their lives. They think they will find what they are looking for in the far country {world} but they are going to be disappointed.

I have walked this earth for three score and ten and I can tell you by experience, the thrills and chills this world gives you are temporary at best. Not only are they short-lived, they leave you feeling as empty as a shotgun barrel. I have seen this in my own trivial pursuits and observed it in others. A new car, new house, new wife, new job, new location is not the answer. Oh you many get a temporary buzz but it will quickly fade. It will not stand the test of time. Jesus offers living bread and water. He can give us bread that satisfies, with some left over and He can give us living water, an artisan well within our spirit that bubbles up moment by moment. Jesus can give you what no one else can. He can give you purpose, meaning, forgiveness, unconditional love, a relationship to the Father and a way to heaven. Do you know where heaven is located? If you don’t know where it is, how are you going to get there? Jesus is the way: He is the route and the transport. He will come and get us and take us there Himself. Don’t be absurd and leave HIM out of your life; it is utterly ridiculous to do so.

Speaking of absurdities, Bernie Sanders, if elected is going to round up all red-necks and Trump Supporters and put them in concentration camps where they can be reeducated. I want to see Bernie round up the Red Necks. I invite Bernie to Morgan County right now to round up what he calls red necks. Bernie is a whimp, he couldn’t arrest me let alone a true red neck. The man is not intelligent but sadly, he thinks he’s brilliant. He is a joke so why aren’t the late night comedians making fun of Bernie? Because they are jokes themselves. Bernie makes Jimmy Carter look sane.
