[Podcast #005] Dealing With Past Sin


Revisiting last week’s question #3 from the first segment of “Hey, I Got a Question”: “When I sin I feel like I have to punish myself by feeling really bad or hurt myself, even though I know Christ already paid for my sins. What should I do about it?” Or put another way, “I feel like I’m dragging an airplane full of shame.”

      I read several different translations of the Bible but the majority of teaching I use the English Standard Version.
