Answer—Sin

Most people in the world would consider themselves to be sinners and acknowledge that they do sin, and they base that on a general understanding of what sin is, and what it does. Most would believe that sin is simply: stealing, lying, murdering, cheating and disobeying authorities etc. and all these things are sin, but let us consider sin in a bit more of a deeper sense.

 

Let us consider these four aspects of sin:

  • Where did it come from?

  • What is it?

  • What are its consequences?

  • How can one be freed from it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click-Romans 5:12 clearly states where it came from, or more specifically, how it started.  Verse 19 says, “For as by the one man's disobedience, the many were made sinners.” Adam and Eve were the people who were given direct commands by God to not disobey and partake of the forbidden tree, but they disobeyed and brought sin into the world, and from them the nature of sin was passed on to all of humanity.

 

  • Anything that is not of faith.

Click-Romans 14:23

  • Failing to do the right we know to do

 

Click-James 4:17

  • All wrong doing

 

Click-I John 5:17

  • All lawlessness

 

Click-I John 3:4

  • It is deceitful

 

Click-Hebrews 3:13

Sin does not necessarily present itself as sin. It is deceitful. If we want to understand it fully, we must know God and His righteousness. That is how sin is exposed.

  • It is imputed into our natural nature

Click-Romans 7:20

 

  • Death

Click-James 1:14-15

Click-Romans 6:23

This death is not just a physical death, but a death of the spirit, soul and body. Adam and Eve died spiritually the day they sinned against God, and that dead spirit was passed to all the human race though their offspring, reproduction.

 

Click-Genesis 2:17

Presently people are dying physically, but then there is another death that one must face after the physical death which separated a person eternally from God. This is for all who will not be saved from this death penalty placed upon the human race.

 

Click-Revelation 20:14-15

 

Click-Ezekiel 18:20

  • Separation from God

Click-Isaiah 59:2

 

Click-Psalm 66:18

  • Bondage

Click-Proverbs 5:22

  • Condemnation  

Click-2 Peter 2:4

 

Click-Matthew 25:41

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click-Genesis 4:7

Sin is always waiting at the door, always presents itself as an option, and those who choose to sin, either willingly or unwillingly, are trapped by its power. There are only two options, rule over sin, or have it rule over you. The truth that we must realize and accept is that with our own natural power we have no way to rule over it, but with the power of Christ and the grace He gives we can.  

 

Click-Romans 7:14

 

Click-John 8:34

Jesus came to save us from the power, penalty, practice and ultimately the presence of sin.

 

Click-John 1:29

 

Click-II Corinthians 5:21

What must we do to be freed from sin?

Acknowledge it. We must take responsibility for it. Not blame it on others, but acknowledge to God that we are indeed the guilty one before Him. Confess it. God does not save individuals from general sin. He saved me from my sin, and He will save you from only your sin. Confess what you are guilty of.  Then forsake it and walk with God. This is clearly illustrated in I John chapter one.
