SIN

WHO DETERMINED WHAT IS SIN?
GOD.

HOW DID HE MAKE IT KNOWN?
THROUGH HIS LAW.

THE LAW IS THE TEN COMMANDMENTS



1. "I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD. YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME." EX 20:2,3

2."YOU SHALL NOT MAKE UNTO YOU ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANY THING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH. YOU SHALL NOT BOW DOWN TO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM: FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD. EX 20:4-6

3. "YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD YOUR GOD IN VAIN; FOR THE LORD WILL NOT HOLD HIM GUILTLESS THAT TAKES HIS NAME IN VAIN. " EX 20:7

4. "REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY." EX 20:8

5."HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER: THAT YOUR DAYS MAY BE LONG UPON THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU"
EX 20:12

6. "YOU SHALL NOT KILL." EX 20:13

7. "YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY." EX 20:14

8. "YOU SHALL NOT STEAL." EX 20:15

9."YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOR."
EX 20:16

10."YOU SHALL NOT COVET YOUR NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE; YOU SHALL NOT COVET YOUR NEIGHBOR'S WIFE; NOR ANY THING THAT IS YOUR NEIGHBOR'S." EX 20:17



HOW STRICT IS GOD'S LAW?
FOR WHOEVER KEEPS THE WHOLE LAW AND YET STUMBLES AT JUST ONE POINT IS GUILTY OF BREAKING ALL OF IT. JAMES 2:10



WHAT IS JESUS CHRIST'S RELATIONSHIP TO THE LAW?
WHEREFORE THE LAW WAS OUR SCHOOLMASTER TO BRING US TO CHRIST, THAT WE MIGHT BE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH. GAL 3:24



FOR THE LAW WAS GIVEN BY MOSES, BUT GRACE AND TRUTH CAME BY JESUS CHRIST. JOHN 1:17



CHRIST HAS REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW, HAVING BECOME A CURSE FOR US (FOR IT IS WRITTEN, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE"), GAL 3:13



THAT THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MIGHT COME UPON THE GENTILES IN CHRIST JESUS, THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF THE SPIRIT THROUGH FAITH. GAL 3:14



I WILL NOT FRUSTRATE THE GRACE OF GOD: FOR IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES BY THE LAW, THEN CHRIST DIED IN VAIN. GAL 2:21



GOOD CLEAN LIVING
BEING A "GOOD" PERSON WILL NOT JUSTIFY ANYONE WITH GOD. GOD SAVED US ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, WHICH WAS GIVEN TO US IN CHRIST JESUS BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN. 2TI1:9



CHRIST IS BECOME OF NO EFFECT UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER OF YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW; YOU ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE. GAL 5:4



GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS
YET INDEED I ALSO COUNT ALL THINGS LOSS FOR THE EXCELLENCE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST JESUS MY LORD, FOR WHOM I HAVE SUFFERED THE LOSS OF ALL THINGS, AND COUNT THEM AS RUBBISH, THAT I MAY GAIN CHRIST PHIL 3:8



AND BE FOUND IN HIM, NOT HAVING MY OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH IS FROM THE LAW, BUT THAT WHICH IS THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST, THE RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS FROM GOD BY FAITH. PHIL 3:9



SO INDEED THE LAW IS HOLY, AND THE COMMANDMENT IS HOLY AND JUST AND GOOD. RO7:12



NOW WE KNOW THAT WHAT THINGS SOEVER THE LAW SAYS, IT SAYS TO THEM WHO ARE UNDER THE LAW: THAT EVERY MOUTH MAY BE STOPPED, AND ALL THE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD. RO3:19



THEREFORE BY THE DEEDS OF THE LAW THERE SHALL NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED IN HIS SIGHT: FOR BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN. ROM 3:19



WHOSOEVER COMMITS SIN TRANSGRESSES ALSO THE LAW: FOR SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW. 1 JOHN 3:4



I AM A GOOD PERSON


MOST MEN WILL PROCLAIM EVERY ONE HIS OWN GOODNESS: BUT A FAITHFUL MAN WHO CAN FIND? PR 20:6



JUST IN MEN'S EYES ONLY
HE SAID TO THEM, "YOU ARE THE ONES WHO JUSTIFY YOURSELVES IN THE EYES OF MEN, BUT GOD KNOWS YOUR HEARTS. WHAT IS HIGHLY VALUED AMONG MEN IS DETESTABLE IN GOD'S SIGHT." LUKE 16:15



BUT THAT NO MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, IT IS EVIDENT: FOR, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. GAL 3:11



CAN WE BE MADE RIGHT THRU THE LAW? NO.
BUT NOW THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD WITHOUT THE LAW IS MANIFESTED, BEING WITNESSED BY THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS; ROM 3:21



EVEN THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD WHICH IS BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST UNTO ALL AND UPON ALL THEM THAT BELIEVE: FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE: ROM 3:22



FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; ROM 3:23



BEING JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE, THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS: ROM 3:24



WHOM GOD HAS SET FORTH TO BE A PROPITIATION THROUGH FAITH IN HIS BLOOD, TO DECLARE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS THAT ARE PAST, THROUGH THE FORBEARANCE OF GOD; ROM 3:25



TO DECLARE, I SAY, AT THIS TIME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS: THAT HE MIGHT BE JUST, AND THE JUSTIFIER OF HIM WHO BELIEVES IN JESUS. ROM 3:26



NO MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY KEEPING THE LAW OF GOD
KNOWING THAT A MAN IS NOT JUSTIFIED BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, BUT BY THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST, EVEN WE HAVE BELIEVED IN JESUS CHRIST, THAT WE MIGHT BE JUSTIFIED BY THE FAITH OF CHRIST, AND NOT BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW: FOR BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW SHALL NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED. GAL2:16



BEING IGNORANT OF GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS
FOR I BEAR THEM RECORD THAT THEY HAVE A ZEAL OF GOD, BUT NOT ACCORDING TO KNOWLEDGE. RO10:2



FOR THEY BEING IGNORANT OF GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND GOING ABOUT TO ESTABLISH THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, HAVE NOT SUBMITTED THEMSELVES UNTO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. RO10:3



FOR CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVES. RO10:4



FOR MOSES DESCRIBED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS OF THE LAW, THAT THE MAN WHO DOES THOSE THINGS SHALL LIVE BY THEM. RO10:5



IF YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE BY THE LAW, YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY THE LAW
FOR NOT THE HEARERS OF THE LAW ARE JUST BEFORE GOD, BUT THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. ROM 2:13



THE LAW WORKS WRATH RO4:15



THE LAW WAS WEAK THROUGH THE FLESH
FOR WHAT THE LAW COULD NOT DO, IN THAT IT WAS WEAK THROUGH THE FLESH, GOD SENDING HIS OWN SON IN THE LIKENESS OF SINFUL FLESH, AND FOR SIN, CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH: RO8:3



THAT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT. RO8:4



NOW TO ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED WERE THE PROMISES MADE. HE SAID NOT, AND TO SEEDS, AS OF MANY; BUT AS OF ONE, AND TO YOUR SEED, WHICH IS CHRIST. GA3:16



AND THIS I SAY, THAT THE COVENANT, THAT WAS CONFIRMED BEFORE OF GOD IN CHRIST, THE LAW, WHICH WAS FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS AFTER, CANNOT DISANNUL, THAT IT SHOULD MAKE THE PROMISE OF NONE EFFECT. GA3:17



FOR IF THE INHERITANCE BE OF THE LAW, IT IS NO MORE OF PROMISE: BUT GOD GAVE IT TO ABRAHAM BY PROMISE. GA3:18



WHEREFORE THEN SERVES THE LAW? IT WAS ADDED BECAUSE OF TRANSGRESSIONS, TILL THE SEED SHOULD COME TO WHOM THE PROMISE WAS MADE; AND IT WAS ORDAINED BY ANGELS IN THE HAND OF A MEDIATOR.GA3:19



NOW A MEDIATOR IS NOT A MEDIATOR OF ONE, BUT GOD IS ONE.GA3:20



IS THE LAW THEN AGAINST THE PROMISES OF GOD? GOD FORBID: FOR IF THERE HAD BEEN A LAW GIVEN WHICH COULD HAVE GIVEN LIFE, VERILY RIGHTEOUSNESS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BY THE LAW.GA3:21



BUT THE SCRIPTURE HATH CONCLUDED ALL UNDER SIN, THAT THE PROMISE BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST MIGHT BE GIVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE.GA3:22



BUT BEFORE FAITH CAME, WE WERE KEPT UNDER THE LAW, SHUT UP UNTO THE FAITH WHICH SHOULD AFTERWARDS BE REVEALED.GA3:23



BUT AFTER THAT FAITH IS COME, WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER A SCHOOLMASTER. GA3:25



WHO COMMITTED THE FIRST SIN?
ADAM.
WHEREFORE, AS BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, AND DEATH BY SIN; AND SO DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR THAT ALL HAVE SINNED: ROM 5:12



FOR UNTIL THE LAW SIN WAS IN THE WORLD: BUT SIN IS NOT IMPUTED WHEN THERE IS NO LAW. ROM 5:13



NEVERTHELESS DEATH REIGNED FROM ADAM TO MOSES, EVEN OVER THEM THAT HAD NOT SINNED AFTER THE SIMILITUDE OF ADAM’S TRANSGRESSION, WHO IS THE FIGURE OF HIM THAT WAS TO COME. ROM 5:14



FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST ALL SHALL BE MADE ALIVE. 1 COR 15:22




WHY IS GOD SO STRONG AGAINST SIN?

FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. ROM 6:23




THE EFFECT OF SIN?
BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED YOU FROM YOUR GOD; AND YOUR SINS HAVE HIDDEN HIS FACE FROM YOU, SO THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:2




THE CURSE OF THE LAW
BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF YOU DO NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, TO OBSERVE CAREFULLY ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND YOU TODAY, THAT ALL THESE CURSES WILL COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU: DEU 28:15



ALSO EVERY SICKNESS AND EVERY PLAGUE, WHICH IS NOT WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK OF THE LAW, WILL THE LORD BRING UPON YOU UNTIL YOU ARE DESTROYED. DEU 28:61




WHAT WAS GOD'S SOLUTION FOR SIN?
FOR GOD MADE JESUS, WHO KNEW NO SIN, TO BE SIN FOR US, THAT WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM. 2 COR 5:21



BUT WHEN THE FULLNESS OF THE TIME HAD COME, GOD SENT FORTH HIS SON, BORN OF A WOMAN, BORN UNDER THE LAW, TO REDEEM THOSE WHO WERE UNDER THE LAW, THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE ADOPTION AS SONS.
GAL 4:4,5




SO LOVED
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN 3:16




THE GOODNESS OF GOD
I WILL NOT BE SO BLIND AS TO TRIFLE WITH AND PRESUME UPON AND DESPISE AND UNDERESTIMATE THE WEALTH OF YOUR KINDNESS AND FORBEARANCE AND LONG-SUFFERING PATIENCE. I WILL NOT BE UNMINDFUL OR ACTUALLY IGNORANT OF THE FACT THAT YOUR KINDNESS IS INTENDED TO LEAD ME TO REPENT.(AMPLIFIED BIBLE) ROM 2:4




GRACE
FOR SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER ME, FOR I AM NOT UNDER LAW BUT UNDER GRACE. ROM 6:14



I WILL NOT QUESTION, CONTRADICT, IGNORE, OR DEFLECT YOUR WORD.



QUESTIONING
NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE CUNNING THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND HE SAID TO THE WOMAN, "HAS GOD INDEED SAID, "YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN"? GEN 3:1



CONTRADICTING
THEN THE SERPENT SAID TO THE WOMAN, "YOU WILL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD KNOWS THAT IN THE DAY YOU EAT OF IT YOUR EYES WILL BE OPENED, AND YOU WILL BE LIKE GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL." GEN 3:4-5



IGNORING
SO WHEN THE WOMAN SAW THAT THE TREE WAS GOOD FOR FOOD, THAT IT WAS PLEASANT TO THE EYES, AND A TREE DESIRABLE TO MAKE ONE WISE, SHE TOOK OF ITS FRUIT AND ATE. SHE ALSO GAVE TO HER HUSBAND WITH HER, AND HE ATE. GEN 3:6



DEFLECTING
AND HE SAID, "WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE NAKED? HAVE YOU EATEN FROM THE TREE OF WHICH I COMMANDED YOU THAT YOU SHOULD NOT EAT?" GEN 3:11



THEN THE MAN SAID, "THE WOMAN WHOM YOU GAVE TO BE WITH ME, SHE GAVE ME OF THE TREE, AND I ATE." GEN 3:12



AND THE LORD GOD SAID TO THE WOMAN, "WHAT IS THIS YOU HAVE DONE?" THE WOMAN SAID, "THE SERPENT DECEIVED ME, AND I ATE." GEN 3:13



GRACE ABOUNDS MORE
MOREOVER THE LAW ENTERED, THAT THE OFFENCE MIGHT ABOUND. BUT WHERE SIN ABOUNDED, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND: RO5:20



THAT AS SIN HAS REIGNED UNTO DEATH, EVEN SO MIGHT GRACE REIGN THROUGH RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO ETERNAL LIFE BY JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. ROM 5:20-21;6:1




SHOULD WE CONTINUE IN SIN?
WHAT SHALL WE SAY THEN? SHALL WE CONTINUE IN SIN, THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND? GOD FORBID. HOW SHALL WE, THAT ARE DEAD TO SIN, LIVE ANY LONGER THEREIN? RO6:1-2




YIELDING
TO WHOM I PRESENT MYSELF, AS A SLAVE FOR OBEDIENCE, I AM A SLAVE OF THE ONE WHOM I OBEY; EITHER OF SIN RESULTING IN DEATH; OR OF OBEDIENCE RESULTING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS. ROM 6:16




REBELLION AND STUBBORNNESS
FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT, AND STUBBORNNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND IDOLATRY. 1 SAM 15:23




LUSTS
I AM DRAWN AWAY OF MY OWN LUSTS AND ENTICED. JAMES 1:14




SOWING TO THE FLESH
IF I SOW TO THE FLESH, OF THE FLESH I WILL REAP CORRUPTION. IF I SOW TO THE SPIRIT, OF THE SPIRIT I WILL REAP LIFE EVERLASTING. GAL 6:8




CARNALLY MINDED
TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH; BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE. ROM 8:6




SATAN
DO NOT REJOICE OVER ME, SATAN. THOUGH I FALL I WILL RISE. THOUGH I DWELL IN DARKNESS, THE LORD WILL BE A LIGHT FOR ME. MICAH 7:8
