You have the choice to erase one incident from your past, as though it never happened. What would you erase and why?
Guilt is a big thing in the brain , it shows up on a schedual, when ever im awake.
Regret is casual and shows itself when I don’t get my way and for some more noble reasons.
I can’t do anything about either. So why do they possess a fore front in the brain?
I have a split personality, sort-of. I am momentary and eternal at the same time.
There are things I’ve done which I would like to erase; like hit that kid in fifth grade on the side-walk just to show off. that was dumb. Like smoking at school my last week and lieing about it because I knew the penalty was expulsion and I was a senior in high school. That really bugs me a lot. Like having some one ask me to tell them about Jesus and not being able to think of what to say, that was insightful in to my real self. Like stopping my jogging when i was in my 20s that was on a thanksgiving week, I have nt been able to get at it again. I was doing 10 miles three times a week.
These are some of the regrets that I would erase. from a momentary existence. My eternal self would like to erase all the times I have not trusted Jesus, or not been able to stop an addiction. But, in a way, that has been erased, that’s why Jesus died and rose again. “those who are in Christ are new creations” in the eternal sight of God.
If you confess your sinfulness and over all inability to keep Gods law and live christlike, He will forgive, its Grace in the Gospel
