      Thanks for sharing that. I found the part using the skyscrapers to show how God views everybody’s sin interesting. People might justify their own sin by saying “at least I am not as bad as that guy” but God views it all the same. People don’t really want to believe in the notion of sin any more but sin is part of and people have becomes slaves to it to the point where they worship it. (“Worship” isn’t the word I am looking for here but it slips my mind this morning.)

        The Christian movie ‘Time Changers’ speaks to that – ‘sin’ is outdated, isn’t anything to concern ourselves about.
        I may’ve shared this before, but it gets to the point at min mark 1:34 w/ the little gal stealing his food.

        If those ‘teaching people’ how to think are based on the constructed foundation of lies and ungodliness, that’s how they’ll think, behave and end up.
        In the true sense of Worship, Jesus stated, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24
        That’s the regenerated man/women, born of God, new nature.
        So, the other kind is the opposite – obsession – is a form of worship.
