Re: What is sin?
« on: July 08, 2020, 10:09:36 am »

Why is it when we talk about God's power over sin and death that it always comes down to people making excuses for sinning as if God's only power is over death? 

Okay, when I sin, it is because I am NOT allowing God to have full control over my life...how can I make it any clearer...God is greater than sin, so if I sin it is my fault for not giving the reigns to God.

Now, the question being asked, is what is sin?  I don't see your answer here.

I guess you and I are not going to GEE-HA on the majority of your questions....I look at sins simply and literally as stated in GOD's Word. You either commit them or you don't. [/quote] so according to God's word, as per the OP question, sin is anything not done in faith...that is the definition I am going with, but you seem to be arguing against that definition all the while claiming that you believe sin is simply and literally as stated in God's word...so since I believe it is as stated in God's word according to the OP question, do you agree or not?

You look at the mechanics of how one sins and what is happening to the person and GOD when one does sin.
I don't have any idea what this is all supposed to mean...the mechanism is not utilizing the power of the HS as we are instructed to do...what happens to the person, they are corrected by God, you know, the son that is corrected is Loved by the father...God when one does sin? God corrects us, not sure why I should question any of these things since they are clearly stated and straight out of scripture...which ones do you disagree with?

Philosophical vs. Practical

Good Day Lori.
I still don't get (cause you won't tell me) why you think the formational study of scripture is a bad thing or not a necessary part of our study.

Lori, it is good to hear directly from you again. My understanding is that  'formational study of scripture' (Philosophical) usually results in views of scripture that are not there resulting in more sin, not less. 

Yes, the HS is within me and Yes, I sin everyday, not because I do not give myself over to HIM completely(which I have) but rather because as long as I am in this mortal, fleshly body and have free-will, I will sin regardless.

Yes, When I sin I know it immediately and have to backup, ask myself why did I do that and place that thought in an area where I will TRY to remember to catch myself from repeating this sin again....This is the sanctification process of my walk with our Lord Jesus Christ.

As long as I am in this temporary, mortal body, I am going to sin daily!will get better and maybe not sin everyday but there will be times that I still as much as I try, I will still sin. I

The 'GEE-HA' is a throw back to the days when people drove mules like they drive cars these days. In part it means that you and I will not agree on anything because we are on two different sides of the SAME ROAD..

You see it Philosophical  and I see it Practical. By that I mean: A sin is a sin and I do not delve into the whys, hows, what for's and what happens to me, to include those around me or the HS when I sin..

For a little clarity, lets take the example of a LIE to a person who is a little fat, knows they are fat yet, needs a "WHITE-LIE" from others in order to make them feel good about themselves.

Now GOD Hates LIES..It is in the top seven of His list according to His Word.

I just know it is wrong to LIE (in any form). Is a 'WhiteLIE' to make someone feel better a sin,YES... A Lie is a Lie is a Lie is Lie, etc.

But according to Philosophical  terms, This 'WhiteLie' would be OK simply because it is making someone feel better about themselves ( a good deed)..Nevertheless this then leads to the enhancement of these WhiteLIES (that are ok) to cover LIES that are not OK.  Hope this makes sense without further explanation.

I am just a simple country boy and know that truth has only one path no matter how many ways your turn it. Any deviation from its original path is a LIE not matter how small.

SO, I try not to LIE in any form. It is as simple as that. The practical side.

Does this make sense to you ?  Hope so but do not believe it will!

I pray you have a safe and Blessed day, my friend


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."
