Why do We Hurt? What Causes the Pain?

Why do we hurt? Why are we in pain? Why are we suffering? What is it that 2x2s do that cause the pain? It's sin.

Have you wondered why you hurt inside? You may be the father whose son has been seduced by a 2x2 woman. You've tried to warn him, and he won't listen. Why do you hurt?

You have:

lost a good relationship and suffered loss missed his respect for you that he once had
mourned him listening to a loose woman
been saddened that he believes her lies over your warnings.
and the list could go on and on.

I have found the reason for grief comes from one thing, SIN. Sin is transgression of the law. It doesn't matter our religion. When people sin, it cause pain and suffering. Sin is universal. It doesn't matter our skin color, race, political bent etc. Sin causes pain, suffering and death. When I discovered the commandments of God and the laws of God, so many things began to make sense.

For example:
The greatest commandment is to love God with all our heart, soul mind and strength. When this commandment is broken, then sin abounds. When I was a 2x2 worker, I loved the 2x2 religion most of all. I didn't know God. I didn't know what the gospel was. I didn't understand (nor could I explain) why Jesus Christ needed to die for all sins. I didn't know God. And since I didn't know God and didn't love God, there was confusion, pain and suffering in my life.

The lesson:
So when you write me your stories, and you share your loss and tell me of your tears. I trace in the stories where the sin is. What commandments were broken. Because that is where the hurt, pain, loss and death come from. It's the sin. What hurt is there when people love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and love their neighbors as themselves? There is no hurt nor pain in that. Whether we or others break the commandments of God, there is pain and suffering. It's the sin that causes discomfort and loss. And only the blood of Jesus Christ can wash away our sin and the sin of those we love. Sin is serious and relevant Sin was not a topic I understood when I was a 2x2.

I hope when you feel the pain of your family, friends or relatives who are living in sin, please remember that only Christ can take away the stain of sin and Christ has overcome the world. God can make all things whole again. God can resurrect the dead. What great hope we have in such an awesome LORD. It's disobedience to Him that ruins things and it's his grace, loving favor that restores our countenance. Praise the LORD for hope and comfort when so much seems loss. We're rich enough in hope, love and help with Jesus Christ.

Jas_1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Heb_9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Rom_5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Rom_5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Rom_6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom_6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
