Don't let the word sin in this title scare you...

In my reading this week I came across a story that best describes the conflict in every person. In the story the man said he stepped into a phone booth. In this booth there was a sticker, which read: "If you are tired of sin, read John 3:16," beneath it some wayward evangelist of another persuasion had written: "If you are not tired of sin, call 721-5511." I laughed but had to be honest. The longer I live the more I realize that in me, as well as every human heart, lies contradictory impulses that are at war.
