Notes & Transcripts

After an attack of conscious, Kent Clemens called 911 asking them to send the police over to his house and arrest him "for making a mistake." That was invitation the authorities couldn’t refuse. What was Clemens’s mistake? He had robbed a bank in Williston, North Dakota, telling the teller that he wanted $50.00 bills and that he had a gun.

Armed Robbery is a mistake, but it is much more than that—it is serious crime. While I affirm his decision to turn himself in, I’m struck that the way he downplayed his crime is often the way we downplay our sins—they are mistakes, bad habits or oversights when we talk about them, but the truth is, they are much more than that—they are sins against a holy God.—Jim L. Wilson
