Explain why man feels an intense desire to atone for his own sins. Then use an example to illustrate this process and its end result.

1. sin- the beginning of a life without Christ, the following sequences result from this
2. pride and guilt- the unrighteous way to respond to sin (Pride: maintaining self-image/worth. Guilt: saved- confess and be forgiven [righteous way] unsaved- try to resolve the guilt by other means [unrighteous way])
3. Lying- covering the sin because of the guilt
4. Sacrifice and self-atonement- Jesus is our sacrifice, or we are our own sacrifice.
5. example: cutting and eating disorders- cutting is a way to feel redeemed (guilt) - once girls do it, they feel better because they have given themselves consequences when in reality they are leading themselves to death. eating disorders (pride)- lying to yourself that you are fat. wanting to feel self-worth
