Proverbs of a 37 yr old man
Guilty by association. A moral guilt or unfitness presumed to exist on the basis of one's known associations. Yes, the attribution of guilt to individuals because of the people or organizations with which they associate, rather than because of any crime that they have committed. Jesus was guilty by association with humanity even though he was innocent before God. Pilate saw he was innocent and tried to wash his hands from this injustice on the Cross. You bear the responsibility he said to the crowds. They responded dammingly by saying his blood be on us and on our children. It was through the Son though, God decided to bring the whole universe back to himself. Making peace through his Son's blood on the cross and so brought back to himself all things, both on earth and in heaven. Because of God's gift of undeserved grace, Jesus died for everyone. God demonstrates His love to us, that of us being still sinners, Christ died for us. He gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. And now that Jesus has suffered and died, he is crowned with glory and honor! Praise God, we are righteous by association with Christ. Jesus and the people he makes holy all belong to the same family. This is why he isn't ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.
