Have you heard of Scribd? It is so much better than Audible in my opinion. You pay $10 a month and have unlimited access to eBooks and audiobooks. They are professionally done, the app is intuitive and enjoyable, and there is everything from fiction, Christian, philosophy, and children’s literature. My entire family is enjoying it. I just finished audiobooks by Henri Nouwen and Francis Schaeffer (He is There and He is Not Silent), and am currently listening to Schaeffer’s A Christian Manifesto. I strongly encourage you to try Scribd. The only downside (if you call it that) is that you don’t actually own the books like you do in Audible. But if you are like me, I don’t care to own audiobooks.
I am currently reading Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Ethics – Volume 1. He focuses on sin for pages upon pages. I wonder how many books in Christian ethics today deal with sin or give sin more than a passing glance. It is so important to living a life with God. In our day and age, Christians must be careful to not think of guilt as primarily psychological. Guilt for the Christian is first and foremost spiritual, meaning that it is grounded in the reality that one has sinned against God’s moral nature and law. Psychological guilt is only an outworking, or manifestation, of the ontological reality of God’s moral law and one’s transgression against it (Schaeffer makes this point beautifully in True Spirituality).
Do you think about sin? Do you address it? Are you inviting the Holy Spirit to reveal sin in your life? Why not? Or maybe you are doing this but not with an understanding of the Father’s love for you. Oh the beautiful journey of Bunyan’s pilgrim (named Christian).
