Law and Gospel in Joyful Clarity

Fleshism

Here are a few articles of faith of our sinful flesh:

1. If God is mad at my sin, He must be happy with my good works.
2. I’m pretty good.
3. God is pretty nice.
4. Conviction is manifest in the creation of new rules.

Feel free to add more below.

Thanks.
