“Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.” — Psalm 51:4

Last October I posted a ditty on the confession of Marion Jones, the Olympic medalist who pled guilty to lying to federal investigators. Last Friday a federal judge sentenced her to six months in prison, two years of supervised release, and 400 hours of community service. Marion Jones wept when she heard the sentence, but she did not complain. Once again she took full responsibility for her sins — without excuse.

In light of James Jordan’s complete mental breakdown yesterday and today’s aggravation thereof, I repost Marion Jones’ confession as an example for all Christians to contemplate — which may even include some of the leaders of the Federal Vision.

As before, grab a tissue and hit play:

Thank you.
