All Have Sinned….hello world


What does the word ALL mean?  

The American Heritage Dictionary of English Words says it means:    1. the total entity or extent of  2.the entire or total number   3. the utmost possible   4. every  5.  any whatsoever  6.nothing but  ….

Well then, ALL  must mean everybody, good people, bad people, red, yellow, white and black people, the whole number of in totality have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.   That being true;  when you sin – it really does not make sense for you to try to hide from God what you have done, are doing or even what you are going to do.  God sees all, knows all and also knows what happened in the past, what is happening right now, and what is going to happen in the future.

THAT being true, would it not make sense to just tell God exactly what you are feeling and what you think about it and open the door and admit your part in it and let Him start the process of forgiveness so your slate does not get overcome with more than you can handle?  Do you remember when Adam and Eve sinned and hid themselves from God?   Were they really hidden?  Of course not, God knew exactly where they were, but He asked them anyway, just to see it they knew where they were;

“Where art thou?”  God asked.

“I heard your voice in the garden, I was afraid, I was naked, I hid myself,” the man answered.

Then, like many of us, he puts the blame on someone else……the woman, you gave me, she gave me and I did……   He put the blame on 1. the woman, 2. God, 3. the woman, before he admitted he did anything.

The woman didn’t do much better:  she blames the serpent and then admits what she did.  She didn’t blame God or Adam, but she did blame the serpent before she admits what she did.

I am a very wondering person and I wonder what would have happened if when God asked Adam, ‘ Where art thou?’ if Adam had said, “Here Lord, hiding from your view because I have done that which you bid me not do. I repent, cleanse me O Lord and renew in me a right heart!”     What do you think God would have done?  

Quick to repent or quick to blame others?    All have sinned and come short of the glory of God……
