(September 2, 2015)
I suppose it is a very common desire to be redeemed in our sins. I can understand why we may want that result – after all, walking the path of discipleship is hard, painful, and relentless. We might want to receive the blessings of redemption without the necessity of the work.
But, of course, that is impossible (just as Abinidi said). Most particularly because redemption necessitates leaving our sins. We cannot become clean sitting in a mud pit. We cannot become dry swimming in the ocean. And we cannot be redeemed until we leave our sins.
