The Definition of Guilt
Guilt is your refusal to allow Jesus Christ to pay for your sins. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook, Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2003, 49)
But I Am Innocent
A man in Texas was charged with horse stealing, but he claimed to be innocent. He was asked if he preferred to be tried by the judge or a jury of his peers.
"What's 'peers'?" he asked.
They explained it means somebody just like you.
"Oh, I'll take the judge," he replied. "I don't want to be tried by a bunch of horse thieves."

Feeling BadOne little boy was asked to define guilt. He said he wasn't quite sure what it was, but he thought it had something to do with feeling bad when he kicked girls. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook, Peabody MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2003, 49)
