1. What is sin?
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law:
For sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4 KJV
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness and sin
Is lawlessness 1 John 3:4 NKJ
2. Now how would you define sin? Sin is not loving and believing in God.
3. What is the law?
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all
Your Soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the
First commandment. And the second, like it, is this: you shall love your
Neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12: 30-31
Paul says “ Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who
Loves another has fulfilled the law. “Love does no harm to a neighbor there-
fore love is the fulfillment of the law. Romans 13:8-10.
See Revelation 12:17, Revelation 14:12
Paul further states: “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even this: you shall
love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:14
At the most basic level the law can be summed up in one word love.
Love is the same word John used to sum up the character of God. 1John 4:8
God is love Therefore the law is love. 1John 4:8
4. Did Eve sin when she took the fruit or before she took the fruit?
Genesis 3:1 Eve doubted God’s word.
Genesis 3:2-4. Eve started doubting that God means what He says.
Genesis 3:6 Eve in actuality focused her love on herself rather than on God.
This is the core of sin. Sin is Rebellion against God.
5. So when did Eve Sin?
When she loved herself and her desire more than she
loved God and His will.
She placed love for something (fruit) and someone (herself)
before her love for God. See 2Timothy 4:9
Sin then is not loving or believing God. See John 16:7-9
Romans 14:23, Hebrews 3:12, 14, Hebrews 4: 2-3, 10-11.
Sin leads to all manner of sins. See 1 John 3:4.
Even if I change all my behavior, in the end I am still a sinner!! Romans 3:23.
Different views of Sin lead to radically different roads to salvation.
Sin is about my rebellion against God, about my relationship with Him!! God wants all of me not just part!! “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me”. Revelation 3:20
God’s Judgment is to determine the one who has faith in Jesus Romans 3:26
We will be Judged on how we treat one another
Do you think the following thought is correct??
Please reply and leave your comments:
Jesus is righteous. If Jesus is in you, then His righteousness is in you.
Therefore you are righteous!!!
