Neighbor Hate, Neighbor Love

As if on cue, yesterday’s “Neighbor Love” post is accompanied by a Neighbor Love rendition of the LectioCast!

The story of David raises the vexing question: do we really want to say we have sinned against God alone, when we have sinned against our neighbors as well?

This week there are a couple of contests on LectioCast, including one for most epic sermon title. So get over to the LectioCast, get yourself a good listen, and get yourself a free t-shirt for bringing creative goodness to your fellow prepcrastinators!

One thought on “Neighbor Hate, Neighbor Love

  1. I’m thinking that David’s saying that he “sinned against God alone” is one of those “either/or” hebraic/jewish exaggerations that emphasizes the difference between the “oops, I did you wrong” and the extremely greater significance of “Oh, My G-d, I have done You Wrong.” Other humans are not able or justified in deciding what is sinful, God alone is the judge, hence David can rightly say I have “sinned against God alone.”
