"Don't judge me because I sin differently than you."
There is not one person on this earth who doesn't sin.
Does that mean that I shouldn't try to be a better person? Of course not! I think we all should constantly strive to grow closer to God and to improve ourselves (not to impress God. we can't. we can't earn our way into heaven. that's not my point.) But, as a result of having God's grace, why wouldn't we want to try to be better?
I know at some point, I might stop drinking. Or, I might not. I know that I need to look to God to help me be stronger. I know that when I'm stressed out or want to have fun with my friends, I should look to God and not to that glass of wine or beer. That yummy craft beer or that yummy fruity wine.
But, I'm not there yet. That doesn't mean I won't ever be there.
For now, that's why I need a savior. I sin every second of every minute of every day. I'm incapable not to. God loves me anyway and he knows my heart. I'm thankful that he let his own son die on the cross for my sins and for the sins of every person in the world. Every person.
I'm not trying to alienate anyone. Just trying to tell you that I'm human.
