Sacrifices and Zelda

No more lambs, sheep, or goats. No more burnings offered upon the altar to forgive your sins against the Lord. Easter is always a great time for reflection on how much God loves us. He offered up a sacrifice on our behalf to atone for our sins. No greater sacrifice could be offered. All we have to do is accept the gift. That's it.....

It's so simple. It's hard to accept, but it is very simple. Our most righteous works are filthy rags and there is nothing that can't be forgiven. Hitler, himself, may be there in heaven with the Apostles. We don't know the personal relationship with God of anyone.  If someone tells me they are a Christian and have accepted Christ as their savior, I can't possibly say it is otherwise.

How successfully you live your life will be determined by other things. God gives us that guidance in the Bible. If you were going to play a video game and had the benefit of the creator telling you how to play it, wouldn't it be wise to listen to him? Perhaps not a perfect metaphor, but one that helps me. I like to imagine how the parables of Jesus would be told today. "Life is like a first person shooter game..." "The Kingdom of God is like finishing The Legends of Zelda..." I know Jesus would be funny too.
