Interesting post, trail.
In my humble opinion, I don't think that God is at all interested in our sin. I don't think He even sees it. In other words, I don't think that he is preoccupied with whether we are "messing up" or "sinning" or "missing the mark" or "not living right" or whatever anybody wants to call it.
Whenever we start expounding upon "What God Thinks Of Sin," then I think He prob kind of rolls His omniscient eyes and sighs and says, "I'm not here to be preoccupied with your sins. In fact I don't even see them. That's what that Whole Jesus As Atonement Thing was about."
Rather, I believe that He sees us, in whatever state we are in, and He yearns for us. And that whenever we reach for Him and to Him (whether we're reaching from the mud of our own crap/faults/etc. or whether we're reaching from the cozy warmth of our keeping-our-crap-together), He is delighted. He's just delighted that we're reaching for Him. And He reaches back with love, acceptance, warmth ... AND some extra doses of wisdom to keep us from continuing to hurt ourselves. He freekin' Rocks, like that, in my humble opinion.
