The answer depends on how you look at it: as a criminal or as a sinner...we will call this “The Contingency!”
The criminal’s behavior depends on propensity; while the sinner on maturity.
A criminal is innocent until proven guilty; a sinner is guilty until repented!
The criminal’s past will dictate the future; a sinner’s past will not.
A criminal is convicted based on evidence; a sinner based on choice!
The criminal depends on a lawyer; the sinner on Jesus!
Today, chose the Freedom given by Jesus and you will be found NOT GUILTY as a sinner, even if you are guilty as a criminal!
