I waited and waited, and then I went and asked a Christian friend of
mine. She said that while it is true we all sin all the time, God would
not want us to feel guilty about that. After all, he sent Jesus down to
save us.

I then told her that it seemed kind of like a circular thingy to me...
first you define sin and "sinner" to include everybody, thus burdening
us all with guilt and then you send down a "saviour" to save us all from
said sin... what da fuck? Would it not make a lot more sense to just
narrow the definition of sin?

And so, in the words of a 13 year old atheist on the Church of
Freethought: "My Lord and Saviour? To save me from what???"
