First jump over and read the post that made me question this.
Now the question.
Is fear (like that mentioned in the post – hope that’s okay to link to you Anna, I am in no way pointing out you are wrong or right, just interested.) a sin? Or, a symptom? Or what?
Link away. I welcome the discussion! 🙂
Really interesting – hey Anna, I struggle from an anxiety disorder.
Brings me back to pondering whether we have a really good theology of sin!? Falling short? Certainly. Malicious or wilful behaviour? Certainly not. How responsible are you for your subconscious might become: how able are you to respond.
God grant me the courage to change the things I can,
the grace to accept the things I can’t,
and the wisdom to know the difference!
I guess it depends also on whether the idea of something being sin means that you feel condemnation, or perhaps whether you feel conviction without condemnation.
“For there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ”
