What Do You Call Sin?

August 18, 2020 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”

(1 John 1:8)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Consider this:

  • The evolutionist believes man is on his way up.
  • The educator believes man can be taught to live without sin.
  • Science seems to think that in solving the problems of the natural world, we will do away with sin.
  • The sociologist thinks sin comes from an unhealthy environment.
  • The psychologist believes if you talk about yourself long enough, you’ll erase your guilty feelings about sin.

And all of them want to ignore God and deny sin. If sin is seen as just a “mistake” or a “sickness,” then there’s no reason to have God.

ACTION POINT:

How do you view sin in your life? If you try to ignore it, you’ll never have fellowship with God. See it for what it is: an affront to a Holy God. Ask God to let you see it as He sees it. Then confess it. Call upon Him to help you abandon it.
