Separating God our Father from God our Boss

God ALWAYS wants relationship with us not matter what our condition.

Sin through the eyes of religion (including religious Christianity) is offending the deity.

  • God is not offended over your sin as if you did something to Him personally.

Stop and think; why would a loving father tell his children not to do something?

  • Would it be to restrict something that would make the child happy?
  • Would it be because it would endanger the child?
    • Proverbs 8:36 NAS But he who sins against me injures himself

God knows the way the legalities work in the spirit world.

  • Romans 6:15-17 NLT 15 Well then, since God's grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! 16 Don't you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.


Through history you see a loving Father dealing with His children as per needed.

So we don’t try to make God fit in one era the way He was in another, separate how God has dealt with mankind throughout history according to mankind’s age.

  1. Garden to Moses = Infant that is told no but isn’t ready for the understanding of the rules
  2. Moses to Jesus = Rules or law is laid out and expected to understand with punishments accordingly.
  3. Jesus to now = Older teenage to adult being trained with the rules and boundaries operating in freedom and prosperity not having to have someone watch over them constantly with rules and punishment.



Don’t let anyone condemn you for anything

This includes known sin




Sin defined is: Disobedience or doing what God tells us not to do.

To keep us coming towards our Father we need to understand why He said not to do something.

Let’s look at different sins and why God said no:

Sin unto death

Sin against our body

Sin against God’s body of believers

Various sins

1 Corinthians 6:18 NAS Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. 


If God always forgives then does sin only hurt my life here and not my eternal destiny?

Ephesians 4:17-20 NAS 17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. 


  • Have Ben come up.
  • Explain the Forgiveness Bell
  • Intro dark person comes out of side stage door behind Ben
  • Intro me as God
  • Tell Ben he’s told a lie. He pushes the forgiveness bell
  • Tell Ben to never touch the plant. He does and the dark person puts a veil over him. I tell him to push the bell
  • Tell Ben never to steal. Ben goes over and steals a pen off the pulpit. Another veil is placed over him. I tell him to push the bell. He can’t find it.
