The Testimony of a Professing Christian

God loves and accepts me as I am. It doesn't matter that I'm a wretched sinner who can't do anything right. God takes pity on me because my condition is pitiful. I know that I don't have to worry about my sin because of the filthy sinful nature that I was born with. I am just a worm, but a worm that is loved by God, in spite of my ongoing willful sinning. I can't help it, it's just the nature that I was born with. This is the truth that my pastor has taught me, and I believe him. I have put my faith in Jesus' finished work on the cross. I know that I am going to go to heaven, even though I don't even try to stop sinning, because I know that if I do, I'll fall away from God's unmerited favor. God doesn't really want me to try to stop sinning, even though Jesus told everyone to do that, because this would take away from God's glory, so he provided a plan so that all of mankind could keep on sinning and still go to heaven if they'll just receive the magic cloak. Jesus came to earth to obey for everyone who receives his magic cloak, so that they wouldn't have to obey him. I know that I have made this arrangement with God because I said the magic words that guarantees my place in heaven, and so now I'm wearing Jesus' robe of righteousness that gives me a free ticket to heaven. I know that although I am desperately wicked and I can't help but wallow in my sin God doesn't see it, and my salvation is assured.
