//////    sin   \\\\\\\

 

It is an unpleasant subject so why talk about it?

 

What is sin?  I John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death. (NKJ)

Time is short and by studying God's word and by the power of the Holy Spirit God has told us that we are living in the end of the end days.

God's word says no sin will enter heaven.  If we are saying or doing things that we know God calls sin things in his word that he says don't do the believer puts himself or herself in a dangerous position.

 

I am not addressing the situation where a believer makes a mistake because we are under grace and we can quickly go to 1 John 1:9 and once that is confessed it is forgiven.  God forgets it forever, it has been taken care of.


 John 1:9
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(KJV]


Psalm 103:12
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

But what I am talking about is a believer keeps on sinning (sinning) and knows better but makes a choice to do it anyway, that is bad news.  God expects us to repent and repent means to (make a turn around) to cut it out or stop doing this sin over and over again.

So what does the word say a believer is not to do?


1 Corinthians 6:9-10
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
10 nor
thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.



Galatians 5:19-21
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are:
adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20
idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21
envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that   those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

What is the opposite of sin or you might say the reverse of all this?  The Fruit of the Spirit.


Galatians 5:22-24
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
