guilt and forgiveness

R.C. Sproul, Jr. on Cornerstones and Stumbling Blocks.

Here is the opening paragraph, but go read all of it:

Why do the wicked flee when none pursue? Guilt. Why do we by nature exchange the glory of the Creator for corruptible things? Guilt. Why do the nations rage, and the rulers take counsel together? Guilt. Why do the sheep know their Master’s voice? Forgiveness. Why do the redeemed worship in Spirit and in truth? Forgiveness. Why have we been made into a royal priesthood, and a holy nation? Forgiveness. Eschatologically, what separates sheep and goats is eternity in heaven and eternity in hell. Here in the not yet, what separates us is living today in heaven and living today in hell.

he throws in an interesting comparison between the way the world views Jon and Kate v. the way it views the Duggars as well. Do you buy it?
