The Bible tells us that All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But it also tells us that where the law is sin is not imputed. Yet all have died because of Adam's sin. Complicated concept because although folks who know nothing of the law are not having their sin imputed to them, the fact is that they are aware of good and evil in some way by some internal conscience god put in them and they are also dead and in need of having their spirit awakened.
Several times I've dealt with folks who said, "I'm a good person" or "I feel no need for a god." What does one do with someone like this?
They have no real consciousness of what sin is. They don't really have my standards so their conscience is different from mine. What to do? I leave them alone. The need to be perfect and good is fulfilled in their hearts. They think they are good. Do they long for the beauty of holiness? Do they long for the glories of the supernatural God (not mere silly paranormal esp stuff?) Do they long to serve a being who created them simply because He created them? No. A regular life is all right for them. Talk of sin is a totally different language. Well, I kinda leave them alone.
