Forgive Us Our Sins
Chief Of Sinners by Caryl McAdoo is the tenth book in the Texas Romance series but can be read as a stand-alone. This marvellous series continues to follow the fortunes of the Nightingales through 1939, into the war years and beyond.
Once again Caryl McAdoo has written a fabulous tale full of godly themes and also with a word of warning – be careful, we can all fall into temptation. We need to keep our focus on God, remove ourselves from temptation and have godly friends to whom we are accountable. The sins of the fathers may revisit their sons but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Our sins will find us out sooner or later. The truth must come out. Sins destroy not only us, but the innocent around us.
Obsessions have the power to consume and destroy. There are the uncomfortable subjects of sexual sin, alcoholism and domestic abuse, which do not make for pleasant reading.
Within the story there are different denominations. It matters not where we worship Jesus but we need to worship from the heart. We need to love and trust God and not just go to church out of habit. “He sang by rote, not…from the heart.” Religion will never change anyone, relationship will. God wants our hearts.
The Bible is God’s instruction manual to us. “You’ve got to forget what men say. Look it up in the Word for yourself.” We need to know God’s Word and be able to stand on it.
People chase stuff, relationships and all sorts to bring happiness but only Jesus will satisfy. “”You’ll never be at peace without Jesus.”
Chief Of Sinners was a comprehensive read which I really enjoyed. It was my favourite in the series so far. Thank you Caryl McAdoo was another great story.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
