*SIN

*It has Chinese version in the back.

Different religions have different concepts of sin. Different peoples have different definitions of sin. Religions and peoples do not matter, the Word of God matters. God has the final say on everything. What God says is sin is sin. The Bible is the Word of God. The Word of God defines what is.

1.  The Basic Nature of Sin.

Gen 4:7, “If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Note: Sin in Hebrew is chatta'ah which means a miss, misstep, slip with the foot, sinfulness; - it occurs about 296 times in the Old Testament. People who sin do not do well. People who do well do not sin. To rule over in Hebrew is mashal which means to have dominion, exercise dominion, reign; - it occurs about 81 times in the Old Testament. Sin is a bad master. Sin puts people down. Sin rules over sinners. Sin is a spiritual bondage.

(A). All sins are not equal.

Gen 18:20, “And the Lord said: The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave.”

Note: Grave in Hebrew is kabad which means heavy, burdensome, grievous, weighty, vehement, of enormity of wickedness; - it occurs about 116 times in the Old Testament. According to God, the sin of homosexuality is exceedingly grave. Something hideous and ominous is happening in Western nations that try to legitimize homosexuality and legalize same-sex marriage.

The sins of Japanese prime minister and his gang are exceedingly grave because they deny and distort historical facts of Japanese genocide of killing 50 million peoples (35 million Chinese and 15 million Asians), war crimes, sex slavery, and unprecedented atrocities. Japanese leaders and people are primitive because they glorify and worship their convicted and executed war criminals as national heroes and true gods. The evil prime minister of Japan is the beast of Japan and Hitler of China who shamelessly and senselessly says that Japanese troops of aggression were fighting for peace in World War II they created. Japanese sins are heavy, burdensome, grievous, weighty, vehement and of enormity of wickedness. The sins of American presidents are exceedingly grave, not only they do not repent of the crimes and sins of killing millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world in the unjust wars and bloody military interventions they conducted since the end of World War II, they re-militarize and arm Japan, Philippines and Vietnam in order to rob China's territories and loot China's resources in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

Jer 30:14, “All your lovers have forgotten you; they care nothing for you; for I have dealt you the blow of an enemy, the punishment of a merciless foe, because your iniquity is great, because your sins are flagrant.”

Note: Iniquity in Hebrew is `avon  which means perversity, depravity, guilt, depraved action, consequence of or punishment for iniquity; - it occurs about 230 times in the Old Testament. Some sins are more flagrant than others. Flagrant in Hebrew is `atsam  which means vast, mighty, great, powerful, of great importance; - it occurs about 20 times in the Old Testament.  

Eze 16:52, “Bear your disgrace, you also, for you have made judgment favorable to your sisters; because of your sins in which you acted more abominably than they, they are more in the right than you. So be ashamed, you also, and bear your disgrace, for you have made your sisters appear righteous.” Some sins are more abominable than others. Abominable in Hebrew is go`al which means loathing which occurs only once in the Old Testament.

Amo 5:12, “For I know how many are your transgressions, and how great are your sins--you who afflict the righteous, who take a bribe, and turn aside the needy in the gate.”

Note: Transgression in Hebrew is pesha` which means transgression against individual, nation or God; rebellion; - it occurs about 93 times in the Old Testament. Corruption is transgression against individual, nation and God. The sins of corrupt politicians and self-serving bureaucrats are great. Abuse of power, discrimination, injustice, oppression of the poor, taking a bribe, etc. are great sins.

(B). Sin is a great evil.

Gen 39:9, “There is no one greater in this house than I, and he has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do this great evil and sin against God?”

Note: Sin here is Hebrew is chata' which means missing the way, going wrong, incurring guilt, missing the goal or path of right and duty, making a false step, erring from the mark, wandering from the way, bringing into guilt or condemnation or punishment; - it occurs about 238 times in the Old Testament. Evil in Hebrew is ra` which means misery, injury, calamity, wrong, ethical wickedness, something bad or badness; - it occurs about 663 times in the Old Testament. Adultery is a great evil and sin against God. In Western nations, adultery has gained social respectabilityIn a decadent society, sexual immorality has become a way of life.

(C). Idolatry is sinning against God.

Exd 23:33 "They shall not live in your land, because they will make you sin against Me; for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you."

Note: To serve idols or other gods is to sin against the true God. Idolatry is a sin and a snare. Snare in Hebrew is mowqesh which means bait, lure, trap, something that brings us into evil; - it occurs about 27 times in the Old Testament. Primitive and superstitious countries still worship idols and false gods, but Western nations serve and worship the gods of money, power and sex. There is nothing in the world that brings peoples into evil than the love of money, power and sex. 

Exd 32:21, “And Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you have brought a great sin upon them?" 

Exd 32:31, “So Moses returned to the Lord and said: Alas, this people have sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold.” Primitive peoples worship idols.  Worship the gold calf was a great sin. Capitalism has brought so much evil into the world as demonstrated by Wall Street. Most Americans do not worship idols, but they worship money, power and sex.

(D). Rebellion is as the sin of divination.

1Sa 15:23, “For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the Lord, He has also rejected you from being king."

Note: Rebellion in Hebrew is mĕriy which means contumacy, insubordination; - it occurs about 23 times in the Old Testament. Here means rebellion against God, not nation. Divination in Hebrew is qecem which means witchcraft which occurs 11 times in the Old Testament. Presumption in Hebrew is patsar which means insolence, arrogance, display pushing, making blunt; - it occurs 7 times in the Old Testament. Saul had rejected the Word of the Lord, and the Lord also rejected him from being king.

(E). Eating blood is sinning against the Lord.

1Sa 14:34, “And Saul said: Disperse yourselves among the people, and say to them: Let every man bring his ox or his sheep, and slay them here, and eat; and do not sin against the Lord by eating with the blood. So every one of the people brought his ox with him that night, and slew them there.”

Gen 9:4, “Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.”

Lev 3:17, “It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood."

Lev 7:26, “Moreover you shall eat no blood whatever, whether of fowl or of animal, in any of your dwellings.”

Lev 7:27, “Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people."

Lev 17:10, "If any man of the house of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people.”

Lev 17:12, “Therefore I have said to the people of Israel: No person among you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood.”

Note: The Chinese people eat blood because of cultural practice. Chinese Christians must not follow the tradition but obey God and reject eating any blood. Why not to eat blood?

Lev 17:14 "For the life of every creature is the blood of it; therefore I have said to the people of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off.”

(F). Killing without cause is sin against innocent blood.

1Sa 19:5, “For he took his life in his hand and he slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great victory for all Israel. You saw it, and rejoiced; why then will you sin against innocent blood by killing David without cause?"

Note: Innocent in Hebrew is naqiy which means free from guilt which occurs about 44 times in the Old Testament. Without cause in Hebrew is chinnam which means for nothing, freely, for no purpose, in vain, undeservedly; - it occurs about 32 times in the Old Testament. Killing in Hebrew is muwth which means to have one executed, put to death, slay, destroy; - it occurs about 835 times in the Old Testament. To engage in war of aggression is to execute the innocent.

(G). Sin provokes God to anger.

1Ki 16:2 "Inasmuch as I exalted you from the dust and made you leader over My people Israel, and you have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have made My people Israel sin, provoking Me to anger with their sins.”

Note: To provoke in Hebrew is ka`ac  which means to vex, make angry, anger, irritate; - it occurs about 54 times in the Old Testament. Sin makes God angry.

2.     The Multiphasic Nature of Sin.

Exd 34:7, “Who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."

Note: There are three related words in this Scripture: iniquity, transgression and sin. Iniquity in Hebrew is `avon  which means depravity, perversity, mischief, guilt contracted by sinning, a depraved action, a crime; - it occurs 230 times in the Old Testament. Transgression in Hebrew is pesha` which means rebellion, defection, transgression against God, nation or individual; a fault or trespass; - it occurs about 93 times in the Old Testament. Sin is chatta'ath, the same original word used in Gen 4:7. The multiple nature of sin is compounded by iniquity, transgression and sin.

(A). Sin through ignorance.

Lev 4:13-14, “And if the whole congregation of Israel sins through ignorance, and the thing be hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done something against any of the commandments of the Lord concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty; when the sin which they have committed becomes known, then the congregation shall offer a young bull for the sin, and bring it before the Tent of Meeting.” 

See also Lev 4:27-28, Lev 5:15-16.

Note: Sin through ignorance in Hebrew is shagah which means to commit sin of ignorance or inadvertence, err ignorantly, go astray; - it occurs about 21 times in the Old Testament. The sin offering was done to make atonement for the sin of the congregation. The bull, or calf or goat or ram or lamb killed as a sin offering symbolized the Lamb of God – Jesus Christ – who takes away the sin of the world.

(B). Doing any of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done.

Lev 5:17 "If any one sins, doing any of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done, though he does not know it, yet he is guilty and shall bear his iniquity.”

Note: Clearly, sin is doing any of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done. That which is commanded by the Lord not to be done is sin.

(C). A breach of faith against the Lord.

Lev 6:2 "If any one sins and commits a breach of faith against the Lord by deceiving his neighbor in a matter of deposit or security, or through robbery, or if he has oppressed his neighbor”

Note: Breach of faith in Hebrew is ma`al  which means unfaithful or treacherous act, trespass, treachery; - it occurs 29 times in the Old Testament. To deceive in Hebrew is kachash which means to lie, belie, deal falsely, act deceptively; - it occurs 22 times in the Old Testament. Little do people know that deceiving one’s neighbor in a matter of deposit or security commits a breach of faith against the Lord. Wall Street bankers, mortgage and insurance executives, etc. deceived and robbed the public by creating the American economic and financial crisis committed a breach of faith against the Lord. They may escape the kangaroo court of man, but they cannot escape the judgment of God.

(D).  Hatred in the heart.

Lev 19:17 "You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason with your neighbor, lest you bear sin because of him.”

Note: Hatred is a sin. Hate in Hebrew in sane' which occurs about 146 times in the Old Testament. In this verse sin in Hebrew is chet' which means fault, guilt for sin, penalty of sin; - it occurs about 33 times in the Old Testament.

(E). Cursing God.

Lev 24:15, “And say to the people of Israel: Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin.”

Note: Curse in Hebrew is qalal  which means to make despicable, treat with contempt, bring contempt or dishonor, despise; - it occurs about 82 times in the Old Testament. Cursing God is a sin. Sin in this verse is used as the same word in Lev 19:17. It does not mean the sin of hating your brother is the same sin of cursing God. The sin of cursing God is much greater than the sin of hating your brother.

(F). Sinning against humanity.

Num 5:6-7, "Say to the people of Israel: When a man or woman commits any of the sins that men commit by breaking faith with the Lord, and that person is guilty, he shall confess his sin which he has committed; and he shall make full restitution for his wrong, adding a fifth to it, and giving it to him to whom he did the wrong.”

Note: Sin is wrongdoing. When you sin against humankind, you break faith with the Lord. The sins of mankind, the word sin used in this verse is the same original word used in Gen 4:7. If you wrong anyone, you shall make full restitution for his wrong, and add a fifth to it. Japanese killed 50 million Chinese, denied the genocide and refused to pay restitutions and compensations. Japanese not only sin against the Chinese, they sin against God.

If you watch all the TV news and reports on how companies and individuals manufacture drugs, food and drink with high content of toxic and harmful and deadly materials and additives, you would not dare to eat or drink anything! This appears to be a national emergency more dangerous and deadly than SARS because it is intentionally caused and created by wicked people infected by incurable capitalistic greed. Just as China has demonstrated its abilities in dealing with natural disasters, I am sure China is fully capable in dealing with such man-made disaster. It is hoped Chinese government will prosecute and execute any responsible people or groups of people who manufacture and sell toxic and harmful products in the form of drug, food, drink, etc. It is high time to eliminate those mass murderers who violate the law boldly for the sake of high profits. Perhaps mass execution is necessary to stop and eliminate this evil deed infected by capitalistic greed. If corrective action is not taken promptly and effectively to stop those mass killers, the consequences would be disastrous of unimaginable magnitude and unthinkable calamity and catastrophe. It would be like committing suicide. When you have internal enemies like those deliberate killers, you do not need external enemies who are at work to destroy China.

American contagion of healthcare terrorism has infected China. Something frightening and fearful has happened in China! The American fraudulent and predatory practices of doctors and hospitals have come to China. It was reported that one man was treated in a Harbin hospital emergency and intensive care and died; his medical bill was 5.5 million yuan. One recent case of a patient who had gall stone surgery which was told the cost would be a couple thousand yuan. Under the pretext of saving life, then doctors and the hospital made the patient very ill but prohibited the family to visit and told them the patient was getting better but never mentioned or demanded to advance payment or disclosed the amount. Later a simple gall stone surgery killed the patient and the bill was RMB 450,000 with a dead patient. I watched on TV how the responsible doctor shamelessly and unconscionably rationalized the costs and justified the high fees of RMB 450,000 as normal and not much. Apparently the doctor had seared his conscience and lost his sense of morality and honesty and respectability. Since healthcare is a monopoly, what evil doctors and hospitals can do is inestimable and immeasurable. It is hoped the Chinese government would take drastic action now to stop the deadly contagion of American capitalistic greed before it becomes unstoppable and devastates the Chinese society. The simple but effective remedy is to execute doctors who commit fraudulent and predatory practices (such as charging large sums for unnecessary or unperformed tests, procedures, treatments, drugs, etc., excessive and fake billing, fake medical record, lies about patient condition, malpractice, misinformation, misrepresentation, etc.) and execute hospital owners who participate in the organized crime and seize their assets to pay victims. Doctors and hospitals that commit outrageous and malicious illegal practices must be put to death and put out of business. There are already American and Western doctors and dentists who practice medicine in China’s big cities and charge the rich Chinese high fees (many times what Chinese public hospitals charge). This dual medical system cannot be tolerated in a just society. Do not allow doctors and dentists and hospitals become healthcare terrorists in China. Under the Chinese legal system, no one is allowed to prey on another person. Do not let the Chinese health-care system fall into the monopolistic, abusive and oppressive and most costly health-care like that of the United States which sucks the blood of American people and bankrupted millions of American families with impunity. 

(G). Doing what is evil.

Deu 9:18, “Then I lay prostrate before the Lord as before, forty days and forty nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all the sin which you had committed, in doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.”

Note: Sin in this Scripture is the same sin used in Gen 4:7. Sin is doing what is evil in the sight of the Lord. Western nations and mass media try to make homosexuality and same-sex marriage acceptable and respectable, but in the sight of God, homosexuality or same-sex marriage is evil.

Evil is in Hebrew is ra` which means wicked, bad, disagreeable, malignant, unpleasant; - it occurs about 663 times in the Old Testament.

Deu 20:18, “That they may not teach you to do according to all their abominable practices which they have done in the service of their gods, and so to sin against the Lord your God.”

Note: Abominable in Hebrew is tow`ebah which means disgusting, impure and illicit, wicked, unethical; - it occurs about 117 times in the Old Testament. Homosexuality was one of the abominable practices of ancient peoples which they had done in the service of their gods. Homosexuality is an abominable practice in the sight of God and it sins against the Lord your God.

(H). Withholding wages.

Deu 24:15, “You shall give him his hire on the day he earns it, before the sun goes down (for he is poor, and sets his heart upon it); lest he cry against you to the Lord, and it be sin in you.”

Pro 11:18,“The wicked earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness gets a true reward.”

Note: Deceptive in Hebrew is sheqer which means fraudulent, wrong, false; - it occurs about 113 times in the Old Testament. Those Wall Street big firm executives and bankers who were responsible for creating the American economic and financial crisis and out of taxpayers’ bailout money gave themselves exorbitant compensations and billions in bonuses earned deceptive wages. 

2Pe 2:15, “Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness.” Unrighteousness in Greek is adikia which means injustice, unrighteousness by which others are deceived; - it occurs 25 times in the New Testament. Wages of unrighteousness are unjust riches wrongly acquired, unlawful gain. Politics and government are corrupted because politicians and bureaucrats love the wages of unrighteousness.

Mal 3:5 "Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me," says the Lord of hosts.” Greedy capitalists are guilty of oppressing the wage earner in his wages by underpay, overwork, depriving of benefits and medical insurance, holidays and vacation, etc. It is a flawed economic system where some individuals can earn several billions a year while millions still earn the minimum wage of $7.30-$10 an hour without benefits. 

1Ti 5:18, “For the Scripture says: "YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING," and "The laborer is worthy of his wages." Underpaying workers is an evil, overpaying the special group is also an evil. In a white-dominated society, the top wage earners are mostly white people who are overpaid, some minority are also overpaid due to Affirmative Action, many minorities are discriminated through low pay.

(I). The devil has sinned from the beginning.

1Jo 3:8, “He who commits sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”

Note: Sin in Greek is hamartia which means to miss or wander from the path of uprightness and honor, violate God's law, do or go wrong, miss the mark; - it occurs about 174 times in the New Testament. Sin is diabolical.

The works of the devil are sins and all the misery that springs from them.

(J). Sin is insatiable.

2Pe 2:14, “They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have a heart trained in greed. Accursed children!”

Note: Sin is insatiable that explains greed, lust, obsession with power, and many evil things in the world. There is no better description of those Wall Street operatives who created the economic and financial crisis; they have a heart trained in greed. Wall Street has a language so cryptic that even an educated person might not understand, and a system so sophisticated that only insiders understand and you are not even aware when you are defrauded. Only the trained insiders know the facts. Greed is insatiable.

3.  The Evidence of Sin.

How can one know sin?

(A). The knowledge of sin is provided by the Word of God.

Rom 7:7,“What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said: You shall not covet.”

Note: Sin in Greek is hamartia which means missing the mark, transgression, wandering away from the path of uprightness, doing wrong, evil act, violation of God’s law in thought, word or deed. The Law of God tells you what sins are. The Bible is the Word of God.

(B). Sin is deceitful by nature and sin hardens people.

Rom 7:11,“For sin, taking an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it killed me.”

Note: Every sinner is deceived by sin, killed by sin spiritually and physically eventually.

Hbr 3:13,“But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called Today, so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”

Note: Deceitfulness in Greek is apatē which means deceit, deceiving, deceivableness, seductiveness; - it occurs 7 times in the New Testament. Sin is deceitful because of excited influences that seduce people to sin.

A journalist wrote, “Among the attributes I most envy in a public man (or woman) is the ability to lie. If that ability is coupled with no sense of humor, you have the sort of man who can be a successful football coach, a CEO or, when you come right down to it, a presidential candidate. Such a man is Mitt Romney... A marathon of debates and an eon of campaigning have toughened and honed Romney. He commands the heights of great assurance, and he knows, as some of us learn too late in life, that the truth is not always a moral obligation but sometimes merely what works. He often cites his business background as commending him for the presidency. That’s his forgivable absurdity. Instead, what his career has given him is the businessman’s concept of self — that what he does is not who he is. This is what enables the slumlord to be a charitable man. This is what enables the corporate raider to endow his university. Business is business. It’s what you do. It is not who you are. Lying isn’t a sin. It’s a business plan.”

Num 32:23,“But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you out.”

Note: Find out in Hebrew is matsa' which means to meet, encounter, detect, come upon, discover, learn, obtain knowledge; - it occurs 456 times in the Old Testament. People will discover or learn or obtain knowledge about your past sin – thing you want to hide. The Bible does not say people will find you out. The Bible says your sin will find you out. When your sin finds you out, people will know. Remember the sex scandal of a U.S. president, several governors and senators and politicians, etc. It has been reported that the Yahoo chief executive Scott Thompson lied in his biography because he did not earn a computer science degree. If you lie in this world and people can find out, how much more God knows about your lies that no one knows. You cannot escape because your sin will find you out. Sin is the weakest thing, it cannot defend itself. Sin brings shame, sorrow, ruin and eventually death. Those who have escaped the consequences of their sins and iniquities in this world should not feel lucky for they will not escape the judgment of God.

Sad and tragic is the American way of life. Sad and dirty is American politics. Such is the abnormality and absurdity of American mentality. Do you know any American president or who wants to be president that does not lie? Let Christians everywhere beware this is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ. 

Jhn 8:44,“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” 

1Jo 2:21,“I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.” 

1Cr 6:9-10,“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the Kingdom of God.” The Word of God speaks clearly; I do not need to explain.

Hbr 11:25,“Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.”

Note: The reason peoples are deceived by sin because sin has pleasures; however, the pleasures of sin are passing or temporary.

1Jo 3:8,“The one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.”

Note: The devil was the first one who sinned, the fallen angel Lucifer who had unholy ambition to be like God, 

Isa 14:12-15.

(C). Sin is a bondage.

Jhn 8:34,“Jesus answered them: Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.”

Note: Slave in Greek is doulos which means a bondman, man of servile condition, indentured servant; - it occurs about 127 times in the New Testament. Since sinner is a slave of sin, so sin is slavery or bondage. Sin controls people like a harsh master. For a small example, smoking enslaves people.

Rom 7:14,“For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin.”

Note: Bondage in Greek is pipraskō which means slavery, entirely under the control of another; - it occurs 9 times in the New Testament. Sin is bondage worse than addiction is slavery.

Hbr 12:1, “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”

Note: Encumbrance in Greek is ogkos which means burden, weight; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Entangle in Greek is euperistatos  which means skillfully surrounding, besetting; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Sin entangles people like a spider web that skillfully traps insects, immobilizes and imprisons them to be eaten up. Once a woman challenged me to give the evidence of her sin. How embarrassingly stupid! The evidence of sin is in her.

Rom 3:20, “Because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.”

The knowledge of sin comes from the Law. Let us just try the Ten Commandments.

(a). If she is single, how many men she had sex with? That is fornication. If she is married, how many men she had sex with? That is adultery.

(b). How many lies she had told?

(c). How many evil thoughts she had conceived?

1Jo 1:8, “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.”

According to the Word of God, the woman who demands the evidence of her sin deceives herself and the truth is not in her.

2Pe 2:14, “Having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart trained in greed, accursed children.”

Note: Men and women have eyes full of adultery.

I do not know, but God knows everything about you – the secret things.

Jhn 15:22, “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.”

Sin is a deliberate act; there is no excuse for sin. A man got drunk and drove and killed a person. The drunk driver said it was an accident and he did not mean it. A drinker knows if he drinks and drives, he is bound to kill someone. The drunk driver has no excuse for sin. The murderer, robber, rapist, terrorist, warmonger, etc. – all have no excuse for sin.

4.  The Definitions of Sin.

(A). Whatever is not of faith is sin.

Rom 14:23,“But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not of faith; and whatever is not of faith is sin.”

Note: Faith is Greek is pistis which means a conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, generally with the included idea of trust and obedience born of faith and joined with it; the conviction that God exists by Himself and is the creator and ruler of the universe, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ; a strong conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, the Savior of the world, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the Kingdom of God; - it occurs about 244 times in the New Testament. This Scriptural definition covers many sins. Fundamentally, a man lives in his own way, not by faith according to the Word of God, is sin. To go your own way, and not to do the Will of God, is sin. Consulting astrologers is not of faith, therefore it is sin. Anything or everything that contradicts faith is sin. No one who has faith in Christ would consult idols, astrologers, fortunetellers, etc. or believe in false teachings.

Unbelief is sin.

Jhn 16:9, “Concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me (Christ).”

Note: Christ is the Messiah who was sent from God to save mankind, it is sin if you do not believe in Him.

Question: Where is unbelief located?

In an evil heart.

Hbr 3:12, “Take heed, brethren, lest haply there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God.”

Note: Evil in Greek is ponēros which means bad in general, wicked, of a bad nature or condition; - it occurs 76 times in the New Testament. Unbelief is evil; a heart of unbelief is an evil heart.

(B). Not doing the right thing is sin.

Jam 4:17,“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.”

Note: This is the sin of omission. Doing wrong is sin. For example, American economic and financial crisis was brought about by corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, executives of Wall Street, banks, and firms doing the wrong things, mainly greed, corrupt practices, fraud, and waste.

Your duty is doing the right thing. Your responsibility is the right thing. Failure to do what is right is sin. Excessive executive compensation is not doing the right thing, therefore it is sin to exploit and defraud the people. Giving tax cuts to the rich is wickedness, it is sin. To engage in a war of aggression is not doing the right thing, it is sin.

(C). Sin is lawlessness.

1Jo 3:4,“Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.”

Note: Lawlessness in Greek is anomia which means contempt and violation of law. It is iniquity or wickedness to add poison to drug or food. It is lawlessness to pollute the environment by dumping sewage, industrial or chemical waste. It is lawlessness to sell fake products and make false advertisements. Sin practices lawlessness. Sin is lawlessness. Anarchy is lawlessness. The worst of all, many corrupt lawmakers, politicians, dictators, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, business executives, law enforcement officials, doctors and hospital owners, etc. practice lawlessness. All crooks and criminals and terrorists practice lawlessness.

(D). All unrighteousness is sin.

1Jo 5:17, “All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.”

Note: Unrighteousness in Greek is adikia which means injustice, a deed violating law and justice, iniquity, misdeed, wrongdoing.

To give tax cuts and subsidies to the rich corporations and individuals and to bail out rich banks and firms are acts of unrighteousness. To overcharge and fraudulently charge patients by doctors, hospitals and medical suppliers are deeds of unrighteousness. To blackmail and falsely accuse people are injustice. For anyone to practice fraud and waste is unrighteousness.

(E). Sin is the transgression of the law.

Hbr 2:2,“For if the Word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty.”

Note: Transgression in Greek is parabasis which means a disregarding, violating, the breach or breaking of a law; - it occurs 7 times in the New Testament. Sin is the transgression of the law; sin is the violation of the law. The nature of violation of the law is disobedience.

Of some 6,500 swindling spams (not advertising) I have received through e-mails and messages since the Christmas season of 2011, most of them are Africans and Muslims, most are women black and white, some Muslims call themselves doctors, some Muslims call themselves princes, a few call themselves princesses, one calls himself a prince with an English name, most are Nigerian con artists, some whites, many women who want to sell their bodies, few men want to sell sex, one Chinese, one crook from Taiwan who offered phony partnership, one used the name of the United Nations Office to beg for money (the beggar has an English name),  a Microsoft Award of Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand Great British Pound (£950,000.00) from the Event Manager Dr. Christopher Baker,  Australian National Lottery Department cash prize of $1,000,000 even though you never play the lottery with a winning ticket number, various investment scams and phony business proposals, phony winning of lottery without buying, one who calls himself a pastor in Sweden, and two who claimed to be pastors want to do business with me by selling my products (writings) although I preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ for free, most shamelessly call their intended victims dearest, all demand urgent attention. Their methods of deception vary: some appeal in the name of charity, some sheer begging, most use baits, a few even use the name of God in vain – they are all liars and swindlers. These shameless, lawless, artless, senseless, wicked and conscienceless people have only one in common; they con people for money, money, and money. Some women solicit sex for money. Deviousness and shamelessness characterize all scam artists and swindlers. These swindlers are so shameless, low, degenerate and depraved that they even ask their intended victims to trust them. They are everything what a human being should not be; the scums of the earth. They lie and lie and lie because they are the children of the father of lies, the children of darkness.

The crux of fraud through spams is that crooks and criminals fraudulently offer you money as bait, but their intent is to defraud lots of money from you. Using money as a bait to get money is a satanic trick, because what these con artists offer you are empty false promises, what they will get from you is real money. So wise up, do not fall into the trap. The best thing is to mark their e-mails as “spam” and delete them without even reading because they are not worth wasting your time. The origins of these crooks and criminals reflect the true color and character of their countries and cultures.

The following is a real example of a spam. To evaluate a spam, you need to do internal and external evidence check analysis.

(1). Internal

There are many inconsistencies and inappropriate and illogical statements with incongruous procedure.

A.    The man who calls him a pastor in Sweden wrote me the following e-mail without specified the name to.

B.    “I am the new beneficiary of partner.” – This does not specify who is the partner, who was the "old beneficiary.”

C.    “I am contacting you in respect of compensation.” – I do not work for any of them, so compensation does not exist. You do not get something for nothing.

D.    “I was related of your formal participation longed to run a transaction which failed you at a stage.” – I never had a formal participation, nor any transaction which failed at a stage (whatever stage).

E.    “I have received the amount to start my project.” – He did not specify receive what amount from whom to start what project; anyhow it does not concern me; it must be a simple and pure bait.

F.    I hope you should thank God with me in succeeding the privilege, through the instruction of your partner that you were the first person to have had the accomplishment of this transaction with him but for one reason and another you could not achieve the process.” – This gobbledygook comes right from hell, using the name of God in vain, since I never had a partner. The deceitful process gets deeper and darker.

G.    “Admitting to his guide lines I dropped a cashier cheque of "HALF A MILLION" Five Hundred Thousand Dollar (500, 000.00 Dollar) for your compensation.” – Deliberately “his guide lines” does not identify the person, perhaps is the devil disguised as an angel of light. He dropped a cashier check of half a million, amazing – maybe it dropped right back to hell. Again, a hallucination that anyone can be compensated for nothing.

H.    Being that I am busy with my project and I have no address or your destination you should contact my representative in Burkina Faso Mr. Adams.Kabour to receive the cashier cheque or transfer the cash to you under your instruction through; Email; mr_adamskabouri01@yahoo.co.jp " – How convenient to be busy in dropping half a million dollar, it gets more and more ludicrous and ridiculous. How could a man being a pastor of church in Sweden having no address? The name of his representative is of great suspect, and the country mentioned is in Africa abnormally strange in relation to Sweden.

(2).   No waste of time is needed to go into further analysis. I waste my time so that you will not be fooled.

(3). As regards external evidence, my friends in Scandinavia can easily verify the identity of the man who calls himself a pastor in Sweden.

There is an international ring of organized crime to defraud and scam people who are gullible, because the con artists always use large sum of money of fictitious existence as a bait. Only fools fall into their traps.

(4). Yahoo email service should not be made available to crooks and criminals who swindle and defraud unsuspecting people in the world. I wonder why Yahoo knowingly carries spams nonetheless.

I hope you should thank God with me in succeeding the privilege, through the instruction of your partner that you were the first person to have had the accomplishment of this transaction with him but for one reason and another you could not achieve the process. Admitting to his guide lines I dropped a cashier cheque of "HALF A MILLION" Five Hundred Thousand Dollar (500, 000.00 Dollar) for your compensation.

5.            Two Types of Sin:

(A). Commission and omission.

Exd 20:14, "You shall not commit adultery.”

Num 5:6, "Say to the people of Israel, When a man or woman commits any of the sins that men commit by breaking faith with the Lord, and that person is guilty.”

Mat 13:41, "The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness.”

Note: To commit lawlessness is to sin. To commit in Greek is poieo which means to make, to be the author of, cause, produce, carry out, execute; - it occurs about 579 times in the New Testament. Sins of commission are many, such as adultery, murder, robbery, rape, arson, assault, fraud, false testimony, falsified records, fornication, false gospel, counterfeit money, idolatry, greed, etc. When a man or woman commits any sin, he/she breaks faith with the Lord and that person is guilty. Guilty in Hebrew is 'asham  which means contracting guilt, incriminated, committing an offense, doing wrong; - it occurs about 35 times in the Old Testament.

When God says: "You shall not..." but you did – that is the sin of commission.

There are two sins which apparently relate to the performance of actors and actresses. One is sexual immorality with a sexual intercourse actually performed on the screen or stage. It is not a make-believe, it is physical real sexual act performed by actor and actress on the stage or on the screen. Even it is a play or a movie, but it is an actual sex act; therefore it is a sin of sexual immorality whether it is adultery or fornication. Another is the worship of idols or ancestors. This often happens in Chinese play or movie. No Christian actor or actress may perform sex act and idolatry or ancestor worship on screen or stage. To do so is to violate the commandments of God.

Luk 11:42, "But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.”

Note: Neglect in Greek is parerchomai which means to pass by, go past, pass over, disregard, omit; - it occurs about 31 times in the New Testament.

When God commands, "You shall... " but you do not - that is the sin of omission.

Sins of omission are many, such as disobedience, failure to do your duty, disregard of the Word of God, etc. When you pass by and see a man drowning, you know how to swim but you do not save the drowning person is a sin of omission. When you drive a bus, you fall asleep and kill passengers, that is the sin of omission. You omit your responsibility as a driver. You do not discipline your children, that is also a sin of omission. You are a teacher but you do not fulfill your professional responsibility, that is a sin of omission. You are a doctor, you misdiagnose or commit malpractice, you are guilty of the sin of omission. You fail to support your parents, that is also a sin of omission.

The most tragic sin of omission:

Jhn 3:20,“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”

Note: Evildoer does not come to the Light.

(B). Mortal and Not Mortal sin.

1Jo 5:16,“If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal; I do not say that one is to pray for that.”

Note: Not a mortal sin is a sin which does not lead to death. A mortal sin is a sin which leads to death.

Mar 3:29,“But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin."

The sin against the Holy Spirit is a mortal sin. Those who reject Jesus Christ as the Son of God are guilty of an eternal sin which never has forgiveness.

6.    The universality of sin.

Universality of sin means there is no human who does not sin. Sin is committed by all everywhere.

1Ki 8:46,“When they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin) and You are angry with them and deliver them to an enemy, so that they take them away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near.”

Ecc 7:20,“Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.”

Jhn 8:7,“But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them: He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Note: No one is without sin. Sinners should not throw stones at others.

Rom 3:9,“What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Gentiles are all under sin.”

Note: The peoples of the world can be divided into Jews and Gentiles. If you are not a Jew, you are a Gentile. Both Jews and Gentiles (the humankind) are all under sin. Under in Greek is hypo which means in an undesirable situation or position, subjecting to the power of; - it occurs 230 times in the New Testament.  All humans are under sin means all are subjecting to the power of sin. People who are under sin are under the burden of sin, under the power of sin, under a curse (Gal 3:10), under condemnation (Jam 5:12), sold under sin (Rom 7:14), under punishment until the day of judgment (2Pe 2:9).

Rom 5:12, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.”

Note: All in Greek is pas which means each, every, any, in an absolute sense all persons taken individually, all human beings; - it occurs about 1,243 times in the New Testament. All includes the arrogant class of people such as emperor, king, queen, dictator, president, prime minister, general, chairman, tycoon, CEO, philanthropist, monopolist, supremacist, hegemonist, terrorist, etc. – they are just as sinners as common crooks and criminals are. All have sinned includes the richest and the most powerful. For that reason, all will die.

Gal 3:22,“But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.”

Note: Shut up in Greek is sygkleiō which means to enclose, conclude, subject to without means of escape; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Everyone is under sin, no exception. Jesus Christ was sinless because He was the Son of God, sent by God, to save mankind.

1Jo 1:8,“If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”

Note: Deceive in Greek is planaō which means to go astray, wander, to be led into error, to be led astray; - it occurs about 39 times in the New Testament. When you are deceived by others, you are led astray by others. When you deceive yourself, you led yourself astray.

Sin is a universal malady. Man by nature is sinful. The prostitution scandal committed by secret service men testifies to the fallacy and folly of secret clearance given by defense department and White House. No sinner can have secret clearance. Given a chance, every sinner sins. A sinner is not dependable. How can a sinner give clearance to another sinner? How can an evil man give clearance to another evil man? How can a corrupt institution give clearance to anyone? Those who give others clearance are not cleared from sin and freed from evil themselves. You cannot find a sin or any sin which is not related to the love of money, or the love of power, or the love of sex - these are the prevalent values of America and Europe and they are infecting the whole world.

7.     The Penalty of Sin.

(A). The penalty of sin is personal.

Deu 24:16,“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor shall the children be put to death for the fathers; every man shall be put to death for his own sin.”

Eze 18:4,“Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sins shall die.”

Eze 18:20,“The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.”

Note: Children are not responsible for the sins of their fathers. Fathers are not responsible for the sins of their children. God instituted death penalty. Every man shall be put to death for his own sin. The penalty of sin is personally applied. Put to death is an execution. Execution is capital punishment. God instituted capital punishment for certain crimes or sins. Capital punishment is not murder. Execution of justice is not cruelty. Murderers and terrorists are cruel, they deserve unusual punishment. Those who oppose death penalty are enemies of innocent victims. Those who oppose capital punishment oppose God’s law. Those who oppose God’s law oppose God.

2Ki 14:6, “But the sons of the slayers he did not put to death, according to what is written in the book of the Law of Moses, as the Lord commanded, saying: The fathers shall not be put to death for the sons, nor the sons be put to death for the fathers; but each shall be put to death for his own sin."

Gen 9:6, “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in his own image.”

Num 35:33, “You shall not thus pollute the land in which you live; for blood pollutes the land, and no expiation can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of him who shed it.”

Note: The most polluted land is where there are most bloodshed, where people commit most murders and killings. Execution of murderers is neither killing nor murder. Capital punishment removes bloody pollution from the land.

Mat 13:41,“The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers.”

Note: Sinners are evildoers. Evildoers will be finally gathered out by angels and send to hell for eternal punishment.

Gen 4:11-13,“Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth. Cain said to the LORD: My punishment is too great to bear!”

Note: Cain was not sorry for killing his brother, he was sorry for the punishment of his sin which he thought was too great to bear. The Hebrew word for curse is 'arar which means to abhor, detest, damn, bring evil and injury on; - it occurs 63 times in the Old Testament. Sin brings curses. Sin brings sorrows. Sin brings pain. Sin brings death. The Hebrew word for punishment is `avon which means perversity, depravity, iniquity, guilt or punishment of iniquity, consequence of or punishment for iniquity, calamity, penalty; - it occurs 230 times in the Old Testament. The consequence of sin is penalty. The consequence of sin is punishment. The Hebrew word for bear is nasa' which means to lift, bear up, carry, take, suffer, endure; - it occurs 654 times in the Old Testament. This is always the case: Miserable sinner what he is afraid is not sinning, but the consequences of sin, in another word the penalty of sin. When an evildoer kills someone innocent and encounters death penalty, he and his lawyers say it is an unusual and cruel punishment. When a rapist is sentenced, he always says his punishment is too great to bear. When Wall Street executives looted the world more than $50 trillion and no one went to jail or punished tells you the flawed and evil criminal justice system. Anyhow, your sin will find you out. No one can escape Judgment of God, not with the dream team of lawyers; for many lawyers will also go into hell.

(B).  The results of sin:

a.  Toward God - fall short of God’s glory.

Rom 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Every sin comes short of the glory of God. Every sin insults the holy God.

I do not know John Edwards and have no malice toward him. John Edwards (6-3-11) admitted that he was using $925,000 in under-the-table campaign contribution to hide his pregnant mistress during his 2008 run for president. This illustrates the Biblical truth, Num 32:23, "But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the LORD; and be sure your sin will find you out.” There is no escape, your sin will find you out. Perhaps Mr. Edwards is better than some politicians who denied under oath. Sin has horrible consequences in this life and on the Day of Judgment.


b.  Toward man – the wages of sin is death.

Rom 6:23,“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Note: If you have no sin, you will not die. If you will die, because you do have sin. That is the ultimate proof.

Rom 8:2,“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”

Sin brings death. That is inevitable and inescapable.

Jhn 8:24,“I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins unless you believe that I am He."

Jhn 8:21,“Then He (Christ) said again to them, I go away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come.”

Note: All who do not believe in Jesus the Messiah will die in their sins.

Everyone and anyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ will die in his/her sin.

Rom 6:16, “Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?”

Note: Sin results in death. There is no escape.

1Cr 15:56,“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.”

The sting of death is sin, sin stings people to death.

Jam 1:15,“Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.”

Note: The mother of sin is lust. Sin brings forth death.

8.  The Qualifications of the Savior.

(A). In Him there is no sin.

1Jo 3:5,“You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.”

Note: To take away in Greek is airō which means to take upon one's self and carry what has been raised up, to bear away what has been raised, carry off, to remove, to remove the guilt and punishment of sin by expiation, to cause that sin be neither imputed nor punished; to destroy - it occurs about 102 times in the New Testament. Jhn 1:29, “The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said: Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” This was what John the Baptist testified. This is still what the Holy Spirit testifies! Jesus Christ the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

(B). Tempted in all things, yet without sin.

Hbr 4:15,“For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.”

(C). Who knew no sin.

2Cr 5:21,“He (God) made Him (Christ) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

(D). Who committed no sin.

1Pe 2:22,“Who (Christ) committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth.”

(E). God sent forth His Son.

Gal 4:4,“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law.”

1Jo 4:9-10,“By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

1Jo 4:14,“We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.”

1Jo 4:9,“By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.”

Note: There had been many false prophets who claimed to be sent from God. You can know them by their fruit (deeds). A religion that teaches a man who commits terrorist acts in the name of their god by suicide bombings is assured of heaven with many virgins for him to enjoy sexual pleasure must be an evil religion indeed.

1Cr 1:30,“But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us Wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption.”

Note: Salvation is God’s doing, not human doing. Christ Jesus is Wisdom from God and our Righteousness and Sanctification and Redemption.

Jhn 1:14,“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Note: God became Man in the person of Jesus Christ.  To see Christ is to see God. To know Christ is to know God.

1Ti 3:16, “By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.”

(F). Jesus made expiation for the sins of the people.

Hbr 2:17,“Therefore He had to be made like his brethren in every respect, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make expiation for the sins of the people.”

Note: To make expiation in Greek is hilaskomai which means to make propitiation for, to render propitious, to appease, to expiate, to make reconciliation; - it occurs only 2 times in the New Testament.

Note: Jesus Christ died on the cross for sinners was to appease God and make reconciliation so that men may get right with God.

(G). Jesus saves His people from their sins.

Mat 1:21,“She will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."

9.     How can we be saved from our sins?

(A). Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, took away the sin of the world by dying on the cross.

Jhn 1:29,“The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Mat 26:28,“For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

1Jo 2:2,“And He is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”

1Jo 4:10,“In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.”

(B). God became Man in Jesus Christ to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

Hbr 9:26,“Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”

Note: Sacrifice in Greek is thysia which means for an offering, offering up oneself, substitute for sacrifice; - it occurs 29 times in the New Testament.

Rev 1:5,“And from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood.”

Note: The precious blood of Jesus has washed our sins and freed us from our sins.

(C). The Lord does not take into account the sin of those who repent and believe in Jesus Christ.

Rom 4:8,“Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account.”

Note: When the Lord does not take the sin of the man into account means God counts the man righteous and has forgiven his sins.

(D). On our behalf Christ died to sin once for all, He rose again from death for our justification.

Rom 6:10,“For the death that He (Christ) died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.”

Rom 6:22,“But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.”

Note: This is the great process of God’s salvation: redemption (crucifixion), salvation (regeneration), sanctification, and glorification – eternal life.

(E). The forgiveness of sin.

Luk 5:24,“But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins"--He said to the man who was paralyzed--"I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home."

Act 5:31,“He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.”

Note: Forgiveness in Greek is aphesis which means pardon of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty; - it occurs 17 times in the New Testament.

Act 10:43,“Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins."

Act 26:18,“To open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.”

Eph 1:7,“In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”

2Sa 12:13,“Then David said to Nathan: I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said to David: The Lord also has taken away your sin; you shall not die.”

Note: David learned the joy of forgiveness. 

Psa 32:1, “A Psalm of David. A Maskil. How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!”

Note: Sin is covered by what? By the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

Col 1:14,“In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”

(F). The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.

1Jo 1:7,“But if we walk in the light, as He (Jesus) is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Note: To cleanse in Greek katharizō which means to make clean, to free from defilement of sin and from faults, to free from guilt of sin, to purify; - it occurs about 30 times in the New Testament.

Zec 13:1,“On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the Fountain opened not only for the Jews but for the whole world to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.

Do not be fooled: there is no holy river or holy water or anything in the world that can wash away our sins. There is only one thing that can cleanse us from our sins. 

1Jo 1:7,“But if we walk in the Light as He Himself (Jesus) is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

(G). Christ to be sin on our behalf.

2Cr 5:21,“He (God) made Him (Christ) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Note: Christ died for the sins of the world, that was a substitutionary death, not a victim’s death; the Righteous for the unrighteous, so that we become the righteousness of God in Him. In other words, so that God does not count our sins. Our sins are forgiven because the precious blood of the Lamb of God (Jesus Christ) covers and cleanses us from all sins. Righteousness in Greek is dikaiosynē  which means the condition acceptable to God, the state of one ought to be, a state approved by God; - it occurs 92 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ died an expiatory sacrifice for the sins of men attested the grace of God. By grace and through faith in Jesus Christ sinners may obtain an acceptable state that God accounts as righteous.

(H). Jesus Christ bore our sins in His body on the cross.

1Pe 2:24,“And He (Christ) Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.”

1Pe 3:18,“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.”

Note: Jesus Christ did not die a victim’s death nor martyr’s death, but vicarious or substitutionary death for the unrighteous sinners.

(I). Repent and be baptized.

Act 2:38,“And Peter said to them: Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

Note: Repent in Greek is metanoeō which means to change one's mind, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one's past sins, to feel sorry for what one has done; - it occurs about 34 times in the New Testament. To repent is to have a change of heart. Turn from sin to God, turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Believe in Jesus Christ is to accept Him as your Lord and Savior. To receive the gift of the Holy Spirit is to receive the eternal life.

(J). We have an Advocate with the Father.

1Jo 1:9,“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1Jo 2:1,“My little children, I am writing this to you so that you may not sin; but if any one does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.”

Note: Advocate in Greek is paraklētos  which means one who pleads another's cause with one, an intercessor; of Christ in His exaltation at God's right hand, pleading with God the Father for the pardon of our sins; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. 

(K). Jesus Christ will appear a second time.

Hbr 9:28, “So Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.”

Note: Jesus Christ appeared the first time to save our souls. He died on the cross for our sins, and rose from death for our justification. Jesus Christ will appear a second time to redeem and transform our bodies so that we may reign with Him in heaven for eternity.

Question: Do you want your sins forgiven?

Jesus Christ has authority and power to forgive your sins.

Jhn 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

Jesus Christ is coming again to redeem the bodies of believers and transform them into glorious and spiritual bodies so that they are fit to live in heaven and the New Jerusalem forever.

(A). 误犯了罪

利未记 4:13-14, “以 色 列 全 会 众 若 行 了 耶 和 华 所 吩 咐 不 可 行 的 什 么 事, 误 犯 了 罪, 是 隐 而 未 现,会 众 看 不 出 来 的, 会 众 一 知 道 所 犯 的 罪 就 要 献 一 只 公 牛 犊 为 赎 罪 祭, 牵 到 会 幕 前。

利未记 4:27-28, 民 中 若 有 人 行 了 耶 和 华 所 吩 咐 不 可 行 的 什 么 事, 误 犯 了 罪, 所 犯 的 罪 自 己 知 道 了, 就 要 为 所 犯 的 罪 牵 一 只 没 有 残 疾 的 母 山 羊 为 供 物。

贪婪的资本家犯罪压迫打工,克扣他的工资,逼他劳累过度,剥夺他的福利和医疗保险,节假日和休假等等这是一个有缺陷的经济系统,其中一些人可以每年赚数十亿美元,而仍有数百万人赢取最低工资7.3010美元一小时,没有福利和医疗保险

提摩太前书 5:18 说, 候, 嘴。 说, 的。

克扣工人是一个邪恶的,给特殊群体过高的多付工资,也是一个邪恶。

在白人占主导地位的社会工资过高顶部多为白人些少数民族也因积极行动 (Affirmative Action),特别待遇多得。其他许多少数民族通过低工资被歧视。

(I).  魔鬼从起初就犯了罪。

罪是无法满足的;解释贪婪,欲望,迷恋权力,并在世界许多邪恶的事。

没有更好的描述华尔街那些操作经济和制造金融危机的经营者;他们心中习惯了贪婪。华尔街有一个神秘的语言,即使是一个受过教育的人可能不明白;并一个复杂的系统,只有内部人士了解,当你被骗你甚至不知道。只有受过训练的人士了解事实。贪婪是无法满足的。

3.        罪的证据

怎样才能知道罪?

(A).  罪的知识是来自神的律法

罗马书 7:7, 样, 呢? 吗? 是。 法, 罪。 说, 心。 心。

以上说明何为罪。神的律法向我们解释什么是罪。圣经是神的话语。

(B).  本质是迷惑使变硬。

罗马书 7:11, 会, 我, 我。

:每一个罪人是被罪欺骗,在属灵上被罪杀死,最后杀了肉体。

希伯来书 3:13, 日, 劝,免 间,有 惑,心 了。

在希腊文迷惑apatē,这意味着欺骗,欺诈,诡诈,诱惑; - 它在新约发生大约7。罪骗人是因为兴奋的影响,引诱人犯罪。

希伯来书 11:25, 害, 乐。

人被罪恶欺骗的原因是因为罪中之乐,然而罪恶的乐趣是临时的要过去。

约翰一书 3:8, 鬼, 罪。 来, 为。

魔鬼是第一个犯罪,那堕落的天使明亮之星,存了邪恶的野心要成为像神, 以赛 亚书14:12-15

(C).  罪恶是奴役。

约翰福音 8:34 , :   们。 的, 仆。

在希腊文奴仆doulos,这意味着一个奴隶,奴性条件的人,契约仆人;-它在新约发生大约127次。由于罪人是罪恶的奴隶,因此罪是作苦工或奴役。

制罪人如同一个严酷的主人。

罗马书 7:14 , 的, 的, 了。

卖给罪作奴隶在希腊文pipraskō,这意味着奴役,完全受人控制之下; -它在新约发生大约9。罪奴役是比上瘾一种苦役更坏

希伯来书 12:1, 人, 们, 担, 罪, 耐, 程,

在希腊文重担 ogkos, 这意味着重担, 负担重; - 它在新约发生一次。在希腊文缠累euperistatos, 这意味着即巧妙地围困扰; - 它在新约发生一次罪恶纠缠人像蜘蛛网一样,巧妙地陷害昆虫,使他们不能移动吃掉有一次一女人向我挑战给她罪的证据。如何尴尬愚蠢? 罪的证据是她里面。

罗马书3:20, 个, 法, 义。

罪的知识来源于律法。我们只尝试十诫。

(a).  如果她是单身,她和多少男人发生性关系? 这是淫乱。 如果她已经结婚了,她和多少男人发生性关系? 这是通奸。

(b).  说过多少谎言?

(c).  她怀了多少邪念

约翰一书 1:8,   罪, 便 欺, 了。

根据神的话语,那女人要求她罪的证据,便是自欺,真理也不在她心里了

彼得后书 2:14, 色, 罪。 人, 婪, 类。

:男人和女人的眼睛充满了淫色。我不知道,但知道你的一切;- 秘密的东西。

约翰福音 15:22,   们, 罪。 诿 了。

罪恶是故意的行为;罪没有借口。一个人喝醉了,驱车撞死人。醉汉司机说这是一个意外他不是故意。一个酒徒知道如果他酒后驾车他一定会杀人。醉汉司机的罪无可推诿。凶手强盗强奸犯恐怖分子战争贩子等等 - 都没有罪的借口。 

4. 罪的定义

(A).  凡不出于信心的都是罪。

罗马书 14:23, 的, 罪。 吃, 心。 罪。

在希腊文信心pistis,这意味着一个信念或信仰,关于人对神的关系和神圣的东西,一般包括思想信任服从出于信心与及加盟;坚信神由他自己存在,是造物主和宇宙的统治者,借着耶稣基督供应和赐予永恒的救恩;一个坚定的信念或信仰耶稣是弥赛亚,世界的救主,通过耶稣在神的国得到永恒的救救恩; -它在新约发生大约244次。这圣经的定义涵盖了许多罪恶。

从根本上讲,一个人生活照他自己的方式,而不是根据信仰神的话语,就是罪。走自己的路而不是做神的旨意的就是罪。

咨询占星学家不是出于信心因此它是罪恶。任何东西一切与信仰相抵触的是罪恶。没有一个信基督的人会咨询偶像占星家算命先生等等或相信错误的教导。

不信就是罪。

约翰福音 16:9,   罪,是 基督

:基督是弥赛亚,神到世间来为要拯救人类;如果你不相信,这就是罪。

6. 罪的普遍性

罪恶的普遍性意味着没有人不犯罪。犯罪恶的到处都是。

列王记上 8:46,你 的 民 若 得 罪 你 (世 上 没 有 不 犯 罪 的 人), 你 向 他 们 发 怒, 将 他 们 交 给 仇 敌 掳 到 仇 敌 之 地, 或 远 或 近,

传道书 7:20,时 常 行 善 而 不 犯 罪 的 义 人, 世 上 实 在 没 有

约翰福音 8:7,“ 他 们 还 是 不 住 地 问 他, 耶 稣 就 直 起 腰 来, 对 他 们 说, 你 们 中 间 谁 是 没 有 罪 的, 谁 就 可 以 先 拿 石 头 打 她。

世上没有不犯罪的人。没有人是没有罪。 罪人不应该扔石头打人。

罗马书 3:9,“这 却 怎 么 样 呢? 我 们 比 他 们 强 吗? 决 不 是 的。 因 我 们 已 经 证 明, 犹 太 人 和 希 利 尼 人 都 在 罪 恶 之 下。

:世界各国人民可以分为犹太人和外邦人。如果你不是一个犹太人,你就是一个外邦人。无论是犹太人和外邦人(即人类)都在罪恶之下。在希腊文在下hypo,这意味着在一个不理想的情况或位置,服从于权力; - 它新约发生大约230

在刑罚之下,等候审判的日子 (彼得后书 2:9)

列王记下 14:6, 却 没 有 治 死 杀 王 之 人 的 儿 子, 是 照 摩 西 律 法 书 上 耶 和 华 所 吩 咐 的 说, 不 可 因 子 杀 父, 也 不 可 因 父 杀 子, 各 人 要 为 本 身 的 罪 而 死。

创世纪 9:6, 凡 流 人 血 的, 他 的 血 也 必 被 人 所 流。 因 为 神 造 人 是 照 自 己 的 形 像 造 的。

:污染最严重地是最有流血的地方,那里的人们犯下最多谋杀和杀戮。执行杀人犯既不杀人也不谋杀。死刑删除土地的血腥污染。

马太福音 13:41-42, 使 者, 的, 的, 来,  里。 齿
