Based on a recent discussion I had, I think we need to have a talk about what sin is.  Romans 14:23 23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.



I have heard people claim that sin is a breaking of the law, and yes, at one time I might have been in that category but that presents problems with which law and what about the NT.  Some people claim that sin is a list of offenses, much like our law in this country.  Others might argue that sin is what goes against our conscience.  But here we see scripture declaring that sin is anything NOT done in faith (trust of the Living God) which closes up so many of the holes the other versions leave open and it also shows us why only true believers can be without sin as well as why in Christ we become a new creation.  Everything the believer does is to be done in faith, in trust of who God is and what He wants for us.  If we are trusting God, how can we go wrong? (sin)

Even believers sin.....The Bible teaches us that there are three tenses of Sin.

1. Past Tense....I have been saved.... from all my past Sins

2. Present tense....I am being saved..from the sins that I commit daily.

3. Future Tense...I will be saved...from the sins I commit in the future.

Lori....question please.

Since you are saved and have the indwelling Holy Spirit is it your contention that Holy Spirit is responsible for all your daily actions?

OR

Is it your contention that you are the responsible party for all your daily actions?

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
