ACIM Lesson 314

Lesson 314: “What is the Last Judgement?”  “I seek a future different from the past.”

This lesson says, “Father, we were mistaken in the past, and choose to use the present to be free.” 

The beauty of the Course’s message is that we can feel light and free with the news we simply were mistaken when we chose wrongly.  God is not angry at us, God has no urge to punish us.  We simply did something accidental and hurt no one in the process of choosing wrongly.

Therefore, there is nothing about which to feel guilty.

Guilt is a weighty human emotion and it darkens our minds when we enable it to thrive. 

And any amount of guilt totally unsettles and modifies our peace of mind. 

Guilt is totally present when we think we do something wrong.  And we, in the human experience, blunder all the time.  This is why guilt seems to violate every circumstance in which we find ourselves.  The Course wants to give us a way out of guilt.

When we think we sinned or we think we did something bad, this always, always causes us guilt.  That means we literally feel guilt all day and night without fail.  This is why the Course teaches us a different perspective where we can get out of the guilt habit once and for all.

The Course gives us the perspective where we in fact have done nothing that requires punishment. 

God tells us there that we in no way sinned even if it appears that we did from an onlooker’s position. 

We are asked to simply see this totally differently.

When we allow God’s perspective to be our lens, then we never do anything that would be considered bad.

God loves us so much, He says specifically that we are worthy all the time of being lovable and therefore, we never ever sin. 

Because God in the Course doesn’t ever believe we sin, then we have nothing about which to feel guilty or badly.

I think the Course specifically makes this statement a fact so we can actually get to a place where we don’t feel guilty. 

Then we can focus all of our energy on feeling grateful for God’s love instead of worried we may make Him angry from our mistakes.
