Psalms 92:15 (91:16 LXX)

So as to proclaim, “The Lord my God is upright,
And there is no wrongdoing in Him.”

Encouraging Words

One of the consistent errors that is often made is perceiving and describing our God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit, in human terms and constructs. Humans are not perfect. We are not omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, all loving, all merciful, or any of the other myriad of descriptors that we apply to God. So as we begin to ascribe our human characteristics to God we begin to cross a line where we can begin to think that God also thinks and acts like humans. This is not the truth. God is upright and there is no wrongdoing or sin in Him. Jesus became fully a human being so that God could join with His creation, but as a human He never sinned, which opened the door for us to live sinless lives. Unlike so many other religious beliefs that are based on the works and teachings of sinful, broken men, Christianity is based on the only human who ever walked the face of this earth without sinning or wrongdoing. That is what sets Christianity apart from all other belief systems the strive to fill the void in us that was created when Adam and Eve sinned. Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy!
