Ever feel bad about all the evil things you do? Well, I’ve got a cure that will make you feel better about yourself after just one heated argument! All you need to do is learn the Righteous Sinner approach.
See, if you’re a typical Christian, you likely believe that Jesus died to forgive your sins, and that you should stop sinning, or at least sin less than you used to (because sinning only once a week is totally more righteous than sinning once a day). But you probably also believe that it’s impossible to stop sinning in this world, and perhaps your self-esteem is painfully low because you know that you do all sorts of bad things.
First, find someone who sins differently from you. Gay people are a popular target because they tend to be nice people. They’re a lot more likely to be murdered than to commit murder, so you can feel safe while making them feel angry and worthless and afraid for their lives. Launch into a judgmental sermon about how evil they are because of their sin.
