Christ, Sin and the Father

Wednesday after Advent 2
December 9, 2009

The Lord be with you

This coming Sunday (Advent 3) the adult Bible class will tackle the following question:

“Taking on the sin of the world separated Jesus from God because God cannot be in sin. How can God separate Himself from Himself?”

All I can say is, ouch! How can someone ask a simple parish pastor such questions? I feel like saying, “Go to the seminary and take a Christology class.” But the question has been asked and we will look at it and say what we can say about one of the truly great mysteries of our faith. We begin at 9:00 AM. The study is titled “Christ, Sin and the Father.”

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
