For example, my last post cannot be taken to mean that I do not drink beer or wine, although it may give that impression. My last post is more a response to an undue focus on sin (usually other people's sin) that excludes the possibility of God doing his work in people, whether seen or unseen or the possibility of God having any power over sin. As I write, maybe too often, there is a natural (or super-natural) follow-up to sin at the altar. Call it God's mercy, forgiveness, life, etc.
Misperceptions are real, whether the topic may be liberalism-conservativism (I am both) or that of legalism-antinomianism (I am both). Misperceptions, whether of external or internal origin, want it to be focused on me. Perception, although with dim sight, seeks the face of God.
There is more to life than being caught up in a world of misperceptions. The good news for us is God does reveal His face.
