Item description for Yes Lord I Have Sinned: But I Have Several Excellent Excuses (Behind the Pages) by James W. Moore...
Overview Why is it, James Moore asks, that we try to justify anything and everything we want to do? We use words, scapegoats, blming other people, circumstances, past events, even evil spirits ("the devil made me do it!") to attempt to excuse bad choices we make with our own free will. In his warm, embracing style, James Moore encourages us to seek forgiveness. After all, we are justified not by our eloquent excuses but by the grace of a loving, caring, forgiving God.
