Discovering a more authentic expression of the life of Christ in us apart from the duties of institutional religion, this podcast asks honest questions about the origin and validity of institutional church rules and practices. These religious rules and practices lead us away from the simplicity of the gospel into an exhausting performance-based faith.

Welcome to episode 27 of The UnSunday Show podcast. Way back in episode 9 we talked about 1 John 1:9 and what John meant when he said if we confess our sins [God] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We concluded that John was targeting unbelievers within the group - those who were sin deniers and outside of the family of faith. But what about those of us who believer? What if we sin? Have we lost fellowship with God? John addressed that in chapter 2 of the same letter. 

In this episode, I am bringing over a recent episode of my Grace Grace Cafe Podcast where I talked about that topic. It's in chapter 2 of 1 John, not chapter 1 where John addresses the topic of believers when we sin and he doesn't tell us to confess our sins over and over but to remember what is already ours in Jesus, total forgiveness of all of our sins, past, present, and future. Now that's good news!
