We have been taught that guilt serves some purpose, however we can be sure the only purpose is for the Holy Spirit to transform us by a renewed mind in the Spirit. Guilt merely reinforces sin and error and this is the ego's biggest gun (and it lies). Does guilt make any of us feel healthy, or happy? No! A free mind is a guiltless mind cleansed by Christ. This was the entire point of the resurrection. So let us live in the Power of resurrection today! Amen.

Chapter 14: Teaching For Truth
III. The Decision for Guiltlessness

Yet this entails the recognition that guilt is interference, not salvation, and serves no useful function at all.
