Eternal Reality 

GUILT AND ATONEMENT

 

He, who by turning round his will,
Receives henceforth forgiveness for ‘sins’ 
Committed in the past,
Is then freed for all eternity
From all the guilt his sin 
Loaded upon him.
He remains redeemed
From that entanglement of guilt, 
Hindering the unredeemed
In time and in eternity
From reaching their perfection.
Yet this temporal
And eternal redemption
Is bound to the atonement
The redeemed freely 
Place upon themselves.
To the unredeemed
It is but force and pain. –
Atonement frees those who
Succeed within themselves
In truly turning around 
Their will in earthly life.
