Church in Detroit—Why the Act of Confession is Important to Christians

1

1 John 1:9-10… “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.”

This verse discusses the subject of sin, and tells all Christians that confession is an activity that pleases God. Those who lead a Christian life know that profession of faith is not enough–they also know that they need to repent their sins with some regularity. In fact, person can’t say that he or she is a true Christian unless they admit to their sinful nature.

The idea of confession is to perceive sin as God perceives it–which is that it is a destructive force in a Christian’s life. Thus, when one confesses his or her sins, one should not simply enumerate the various sins committed, but must feel a genuine sorrow for committing them. 1 John 1:9-10 gives Christians the assurance that those who are faithful in confessing their sins have God’s forgiveness.

DETROIT CHURCHES: UNMASKING THE FALLACY OF THE EUTHYPHRO DILEMMA

oldstmary.1

Titus 1:2 says, “It is wrong to lie because God cannot lie.” Thus, lying is sin because God is inherently good, and He is incapable of it. This means that God did not discover that lying was wrong, nor did He declare it to be wrong. This means that God does not declare something to be good or say something is inherently good. Put simply, God is the standard of what is good. And so, for the Christian, the Euthyphro dilemma presents no dilemma at all, because neither of its positions represent Christian theology.

A visit to a church in Detroit will inform you that the Euthyphro dilemma has been addressed a long time ago. So why do secularists keep bringing it up? Unfortunately, bad arguments will always find their way back into fashion. As long as you know how to defeat it, then it can’t be used as a weapon against your faith.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2oly2Pl
