I'm a Sinner

by Paige Powell

The word “sinner” is widely avoided. It’s associated with religious accusation and fire and brimstone preaching. So I used it in a rock/blues song and pointed it at myself, writing it with chords inspired by "Whippin' Post" by the Allman Brothers.

Album Notes
In this Rock/Blues song, the singer cries in anguish and then presents the remedy, Jesus Christ. In the lyrics, the reasons for being a sinner seem flimsy, but most people don’t know that "sinner" means “without,” similar to the Spanish word “sin”. The word was originally an archery term which means “to miss” (as in missing the target) — in other words, “to lack perfection”. People won’t call someone a “sinner” but easily agree that “nobody’s perfect” — and that’s the true meaning. Here’s a riddle: Who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell? The good people or the bad people? Answer: The good people go to Hell because they know they’re good. They’re just fine and don’t need help or forgiveness. The bad people go to Heaven because they know they’re bad and they’re sorry. They need forgiveness and they need Jesus and they’re not too proud to ask him for help. Heaven is full of sinners (although repentant sinners). The bottom line is that God is so Holy that no one can be with Him unless they are flawless, an impossibility. So, we must choose to be “clothed in His righteousness” (Isaiah 61:10) and cleansed from our sin through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. It is downright mysterious that it works, but so is our digestive system, according to C.S. Lewis: we eat food without knowing how it keeps us alive.
