Back in 2012, I used to broadcast on a private radio station on topics such as Theology and Social issues. One afternoon, broadcasting was on my timetable for 6 PM. The radio station was not far from my house, however Jakarta is a very busy city and its traffic is a nightmare. So, I left at 4:45 PM. Usually the trip takes 30 minutes, but that day it seemed like everyone was heading in the same direction as I was. The road was very, very busy, and my bus was stuck.
I jumped onto the ferry, overwhelmed and excited.
Not long after that, I finally arrived. I walked away from the ferry to the harbour deck, looked around, and my eyes caught a giant map on the other side of the harbour. I walked there and tried to find the campsite location.
"Is worrying a sin?" Asked my friend when we were sitting on the sofa in his living room. It was Christmas week in 2014. Manchester got a little bit of snow, and my good friend and I were busy sipping our warm tea and having a chit chat.
Some of us might have the same question. Me too, although I can't remember the first time I asked that question.
Recently, I saw a quote on my social media feed, posted by someone, saying that worry is a sin because it is doubting God. I have heard many preachers say the same thing. Do not worry; It is a sin, because it is doubting God's ability and power. This statement sounds biblical and gets popular, the same like other sayings such as 'God helps those who help themselves'. But, is it truly biblical? Does the bible really say that? Show me where!
