Forgive us our sins.

Definition of sin.

Mark 2:17.

On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

To begin with I am not talking about minor or petty sin such as Mother Teresa feeling contrite and repentant for taking the largest slice of pie.

Petty sin.
Petty sin.

I am dealing with real sin such as crimes against humanity, genocide, homicide, child molestation and rape etc. The idea is that it does not get any worse than the above, and if you can fix such as the above then nothing is really a problem and therefore, all sin is fixed.

Excuses.

The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism is the forgiveness of sins for several reasons:

  1. Sin and guilt are good because early or primitive hominins and animals were/are not aware of sin and did/do not feel guilt. Knowledge of sin is non-animal. God loves and is amazed by humans because we are not animals and we feel guilt. Guilt is human. Guilt is good.
  2. The more advanced (or rich) you are the more responsible you are and therefore the more guilty you are of sin, therefore, the more primitive (or poor) you are the less responsible you are and therefore the less guilty you are of sin.
  3. Animals are funny because they just go for the belly or energy of life, that is the fats, nutrients and proteins etc, without any generosity. Heh heh! Therefore, if someone who commits a sin makes themselves equal to animals, this animal comedy lightens his/her sins and hence he/she is forgiven.
  4. If someone who commits a sin (such as Jeffrey Dahmer) does not try to be advanced, special or superior to animals and instead becomes, thinks, acts or accepts that he/she is primitive, prehistoric or even animal, then his or her sin is much lighter or even forgiven.
  5. The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism is without sin because it pays every single last penny, this is because natives or primitives such as bushmen or prehistoric man are/were literally penniless.

Example.

If someone won the lottery and literally gave every single last penny of it away, that person would be perfect. This hypothesis determines that if a serial killer like Jeffrey Dahmer thought like or accepted that he was an animal, say a raccoon and gave away every last penny and possession that he owned, he might lighten his sins and be forgiven.

Think differently to animals.

Guilty is good.

We humans learn, that is in the scale of things we do not know something is wrong until after it has happened, and then we learn through being punished. Why did we humans not come with all knowledge of what is wrong and what is right from the beginning? Why were we not perfect angels instead of vicious animals? For example in the beginning nobody told cavemen not to be harsh, nobody told cavemen not to steal, nobody told cavemen not to rape, nobody told cavemen not to murder and nobody told cavemen not to cannibalise. That is until after they had done all these things. We living creatures of life receive no help from God or anyone, we are on our own, we are 100% independent and we learn on our own. Why do we have to undergo temporary suffering in life before we attain eternal bliss in the afterlife?

Because we receive no help from God and because we do not or did not know all things about what is right and what is wrong from the beginning, and because we suffer life before heaven, this must mean there is forgiveness and a second chance. The second chance is the afterlife. Cavemen certainly needed a second chance. Who doesn’t need a second chance apart from Jesus Christ?

At what point in evolutionary terms does killing another member of the same species become murder? For example Homo erectus or Homo antecessor did not feel any guilt or remorse for killing or cannibalising another member of the same species, and it was never murder. However, at some point God had had enough and then more evolved or advanced hominins began to feel guilt or remorse for so called ‘murder’ or ‘cannibalism.’ Therefore, it was only through early hominins, prehistoric man and Jesus Christ that we learned or gained the knowledge of what is right and wrong.

That is what humans do, we bravely come here without consent to learn about sin for God. Humans are brave, we feel unpleasant things like guilt, shame and embarrassment then we die. Humans should compare themselves to animals more often and appreciate themselves. Compared to the animal kingdom we are awesome. But hypocritically we humans should not make ourselves superior to animals, as it is not healthy. God does not really care, to make yourself equal to animals is very modest and humble, and as mentioned the more advanced (or rich) you are the more responsible you are and therefore the more guilty you are of sin, therefore, the more primitive (or poor) you are the less responsible you are and therefore the less guilty you are of sin. What is more impressive to God a human who feels guilt or an animal who feels guilt? We know that if we ever sin or commit a crime that humans are better than the animal kingdom because we feel guilt. Do not think of Jesus Christ all the time, because he was without sin, think of prehistoric men because they did much sin. If you have sinned do not be too advanced, special or a supreme being, be primitive, prehistoric or even animal and then your sin is much lighter or even forgiven. God loves and is amazed by humans because we are not animals and we feel guilt. GUILT IS HUMAN. GUILT IS GOOD.

Only humans sin.

Sin is good because animals are not even aware they have sinned.

Despite their harshness and violence animals do not sin because they are not aware and do not know they have sinned. A raccoon does not sin. Hominins like australopithecus did not sin because they were animals. Despite the absolute harshness and violence in a way the animal kingdom is almost perfect or without sin. Only humans sin. Sin is animal because humans understand sin. We do not have to care, we could be animals. In fact what is the benefit in being advanced, if you are more guilty of sin? That is what is amazing about sin, because only non-animals know they have sinned. That is what humans are, that is the difference between humans and animals. Sin is amazing because the idea or knowledge of it is by definition not animal. Sin is beautiful. Sin is awesome. Animals do not feel guilt. GUILT IS GOOD.

John 9:41.

“If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.”

Never be advanced of the mind or mentally. Be primitive philosophically, of the mind or mentally. With smart technology such as the internet, iPhones and iPads etc this is especially important for the generation of the 21st century.

Luke 7:40-43.

Parable of Two Debtors.

And Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he replied, “Say it, Teacher.” “A moneylender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they were unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?” Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.” And He said to him, “You have judged correctly.” Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume. For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.” Then He said to her, “Your sins have been forgiven.” Those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this man who even forgives sins?” And He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

Call someone an animal.

Animals are funny because they just go for the belly or energy of life, that is the fats, nutrients and proteins etc, without any generosity. Heh heh! Therefore for the sins we do not like to forgive, for example the Holocaust, serial killers and child abusers, the way to forgive them is to call them prehistoric man, primitive or animals. For example Hitler is a cold blooded killer, he is something like a soulless and remorseless great white shark.

Or Hitler could be a deep sea creature, a creepy luminous ghoul from deepest recesses of the bottomless dark abyss.

The only way I can understand a serial killer such as Jeffrey Dahmer is if he were an animal like a raccoon. So if Jeffrey Dahmer was a raccoon would we forgive him?

Yes!

God’s eyes.

‪Concerning sin and forgiveness one must have God’s eyes or perspective of creation. If the history of the Earth was crammed into one day, modern humans have been around since 11:58:43 pm. Humans are not animals or at least they have not been for a million years and God knows this or can see this in a blink of an eye or in a way that we cannot see. God waited billions of years or for nearly an eternity simply for a living being to feel guilt or remorse. That being is by definition non-animal. God has seen it all. Compared to the animal kingdom we are marvellous. God is amazed by you because you are not animal and you feel guilt, therefore, God will forgive you more or less any sin. However, the consequence is that if someone sins against you, you cannot have God’s eyes or perspective of creation until you forgive first.‬

If someone sins against you say: “I get God’s eyes for forgiveness and so do you.”

Notice the similarity with: “And forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”

The Last Supper

The Last Supper.

On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.

When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”

They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”

Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”

Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”

Jesus answered, “You have said so.”

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Conclusion.

To reiterate sin and guilt are good because animals are not aware of sin and do not feel guilt. Knowledge of sin is non-animal. Compared to the animal kingdom we are excellent. God loves and is amazed by humans because we are not animals and we feel guilt. Guilt is human. Guilt is good. If you have sinned do not be too advanced, special or a supreme being, be primitive, prehistoric or even animal and then your sin is much lighter or even forgiven. Think differently to animals. Amen.
