The seriousness of sin

Rarely does anyone talk about it anymore.  Rarely does anyone acknowledge it anymore, but it is the very reason I went to the cross.  What is the reason I went to the cross?  Your sin.

Isaiah said, “Your sin has separated you from your God.”  Moses and all of the prophets testified to Me.  The entire 66 books of the Bible are a God-breathed longing for restoration caused by the separation of sin from the beginning of time.  Is sin bad?  Just look at the Bible.  God thought it was, enough to engrave it in the best selling book of all time.

Do not deny the wickedness and evil of sin.  Do not live in ignorance of it.  Ignorance may be bliss now, but it will turn to utter despair eternally if ignored too long.

The only way to acknowledge sin and to deal with it is through the great love of God poured out…lavished on us….through the sacrificial death of His Son, Jesus, on the cross.  He died so that you may be restored into Him, right where you belong.

If God calls sin sin, then that is what it is.  And who are you, oh man, to tell God that what He calls an abomination is good?  Does man determine sin, or does God?  Just because you believe something is good or bad doesn’t make it so unless God Himself proclaimed it.  Believe in Jesus and then you will believe correctly about sin.  Otherwise you will have an eternity to think about your mistaken belief.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
