2 Corinthians 5:21

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

In the good old days in movies, the good guys wore white hats, and the bad guys wore always black hats.

Many actors enjoy playing the bad guy roles, because it allows them to express attitudes or actions that real life would never allow. Anyway, it’s only a play or a movie.

Religion defines good and evil, but it can sadly produce holy confusion that avoids the world. Yet the bible describes Jesus spending time with non-religious people: healing their hurts and their hearts; and inviting them into an open-hearted, eternal relationship with him.

This was too much for the religious leaders, because they had put so many rules and regulations for the people that when Jesus came and taught freedom, they killed him—unaware of who He was. They were afraid of him.  He did not wear a white hat, and his teaching bordered on blasphemy in their ideas of what religion was.

He personally shouldered the full effects of our sins; to help us overcome our past and to embrace personal fulfillment as we find ways to help anyone around us—good guys or bad guys—to discover his love for themselves.

Mark 16:15: And He said to them “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. (The Good News)
