Why are some so burdened by guilt?
Our consciences have been cleansed from acts that lead to death through the atoning death of Christ. Which is absolutely great news. Except that many people still refuse to accept this marvelous gift of a release from guilt. Beyond those who have just given themselves over completely to sin, there are still those who struggle with guilt. These are people who want a clean conscience, but something is preventing them from enjoying it. You can divide them into three groups: 1) Those who are putting up a front, 2) Those who think they aren’t good enough, and 3) Those who won’t forgive themselves.
