Christianity offends people for many reasons. But one of the biggest is the message that says, “You’re a sinner in need of salvation.” Few things in our culture are considered as offensive, primitive, and negative as the idea of sin. And yet how can we make sense of a world full of evil, injustice, cruelty, darkness, and oppression if we have no way of thinking about those things within ourselves? This passage, which is all about the fourth offering in the book of Leviticus (the “sin offering”), offers great help to us in understanding sin and how to deal with it.
