Most Christians are taught “Sin” is inherited from Adam, that all are born sinful, and sin is defined by nearly all religions as “an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.” Many Christian doctrine’s teach that certain transgressions are unpardonable regardless of whether you accept Jesus as your Savior or not. Others believe Jesus covered all your sins as long as you believe in His death and resurrection. Katy and I both believe in the death and resurrection of our husband and Savior Jesus Christ. However the deeper we have gotten into the amazing relationship we have with the Trinity, the more clear it has become to us that ALL have been rescued from the eternal darkness caused by wrong belief. We have written multiple blogs and referenced often how we don’t support or believe anyone is going to be tortured for eternity. What we believe is all will be embraced forever by the Love and Glory of the Godhead.
This switch in our belief system came slowly over multiple years, and when the ah…ha… moment over took our heart’s, both Katy and I have felt more peace around death and our mission to share the Good News than we had ever dreamt was possible. As the veils began to lift in our personal lives, we began to understand “This is final: I have deleted the record of your sins and misdeeds. It is not possible to recall them.” -Hebrews 10:17 MB Other versions say it like “I will never again remember your sins and lawless deeds.” In past years we learned that sin had been translated from the Greek word “hamartia” which has been (and is still being) taught by many to mean “to miss the mark”. Through study and more study we have found that what it really means is “wrong belief.”
In commentary of Mirror Bible translated by Francois Du Toit. “The word for sin comes from the Greek word hamartia and it suggests NOT sinful acts but rather a condition of a distorted mindset -from ha, negative and meros, portion or form, thus to be without your allotted portion or without form, pointing to a disorientated, distorted identity.”
Jesus came to bring his bride (all of mankind) out of the darkness caused by wrong beliefs. But what beliefs? Recently I was listening to an interview with theologian Dr. C. Baxter Kruger who defined “sin as NOT believing what Jesus says about how the Father views you” I had to listen to it a few times and wow! Sin is any wrong belief about how God sees you.” Sin isn’t something you do, or a lifestyle. Sin is any wrong belief about how God sees you!
How does God see you? He sees you as His masterpiece. He sees you as His favorite child. He sees you just the way you are……PERFECT! No lawless deed, no mess up, will ever change His feelings about you. The other day I heard a gentlemen talk about how his godson was a big disappointment for himself and the son’s dad. But let’s not get confused with worldly views. NOTHING you do will disappoint God, He doesn’t see anything but how perfect we (you) are. He is not disappointed with you for anything. NOTHING can change the good news of who you are to Him.
“We would be misrepresenting God since we declared that he raised Christ from the dead; when in fact he did not, so it would be man’s word against God’s! If there is no universal resurrection from the dead then there can be no individual resurrection from the dead; then Jesus did not really rise from the dead. And if Jesus is still dead your faith has no relevance and you are still in your sins (wrong belief about how God sees you). No resurrection implies no hope for anyone beyond the grave; it makes no difference whether you believed that you were included in Christ’s death or not. If our hope in Christ was restricted to only benefit us in this life then imagine the severity of our disappointment if it all had to come to an abrupt end when we died. However this very moment the risen Christ represents EVERYONE who has ever died; exactly how the first fruit would represent the complete harvest. The same humanity who died in a man was raised again in a man. In Adam ALL died; in Christ ALL are made alive. ALL are individually made alive in the order of Christ; he is the first fruit and in his immediate presence we are personally revealed as his own.The complete conclusion in his work of redemption is celebrated in his yielding the full harvest of his reign to God the Father, having brought to naught the law of works which supported every definition of dominion under the fall, including all principalities, all authority and every dynamic influence in society.” -1 Corinthians 15:15-24 MB
You are not born in Adam or in the darkness caused by wrong belief. You ARE born in Christ and destined to spend eternity in the light of God. No one is born inheriting Adam’s wrong belief, we learn that from the world.
If your hearing voices of how disappointed the Father is with you, they are not from the Spirit. The Spirit only echoes the truth of who you are in Her eyes, your husbands eyes, and your Father’s eyes. And the truth is, you are PERFECT just the way you are. You are perfect if you struggle with addictions. You are perfect if you are in an intimate relationship with someone of the same sex. You are perfect if you laugh at what is defined as a “dirty joke.” You are perfect… period! Knowing how perfect you are will set you free from anything holding you back from enjoying life to the fullest. As author and teacher Wm. Paul Young says, “Papa is especially fond of you!”
“These are the ones who discover their genesis in God, beyond their natural conception! This is not about our blood lineage or whether we were a wanted-or unwanted-child; this is about our God-begotteness. We are his dream come true and not the invention of our parents. You are indeed the greatest idea God ever had! Suddenly the invisible, eternal Word takes on visible form -the Incarnation on display in a flesh and blood person as in a mirror! In him, and now confirmed in us! The most accurate tangible display of God’s eternal thought finds expression in human life! The Word became a human being; we are his address; he resides in us! He captivates our gaze! The glory we see there is not a religious replica; he is the authentic begotten son. The glory (that we lost in Adam) returns in fullness! Only grace can communicate truth in such complete context!” -John 1:13-14 MB
You are God’s dream come true…perfect just the way you are….. Hallelujah!
Experiencing the freedom we ALL have in union with our I amness fills our hearts with unspeakable joy. Our lives mirror every aspect of the trinity. Our smiles, our bright life filled eyes and our gentle outpouring of love radiates this truth… All of humanity is the lost coin. We are the one the Shepherd left His 99 to find. We are in Perfect union with the Trinity.
Blessings of Joy and Love!

Hello Kurt and Katy. If, and I quote you, “Sin isn’t something you do, or a lifestyle. Sin is any wrong belief about how God sees you!” how, then, do you explain this Biblical truth…Adam’s and Eve’s action in the Garden of Eden was disobedience and therefore amounted to the FIRST sin by mankind! THEIR ACT! SOMETHING THEY DID! Their “belief” was that they could hide and God would not find them out. Their next “belief” was that if they LIED, they could get away with it. Their next belief was, I guess we were wrong.
GOD PUT THEM OUT OF THE GARDEN AND PUT IN MOTION HIS PLAN FOR SALVATION. I await your response. May God richly bless you and your wife in the Strong Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Hi, I don’t like to debate theology, as it seems counter productive. But will answer your question. Biblical truth is the first “sin” was believing they needed to eat something to be more like God etc, since the were created in His image. What more could they do? Certainly the first lawless deed was physically eating from the tree. They hid out of shame and guilt that they disappointed God not to cover up their lie. Have a blessed day.
