up. We know that SIN exits because of disobedience in the garden
of Eden as a result we live in a fallen world. The penalty for Sin

When I started thinking
about writing this today, on my FB page I saw this post
thought I would share it
This is the Truth about
SIN, It takes your farther then you want to go,
keeps you longer then you
want to stay, & cost you more then you want to pay.
The simple definition of
SIN is disobedience to God. However I want to
break some things down
today about Sin, to help you to see it in the depravity
of how it affects the
lives of so many people. I hope you will use study & use
this in your own
We don't hear a lot of
preaching on Sin anymore in Church, because we don't
want to offend anyone, we
don't want people to stop coming & paying Offerings
to the Church, we have
replaced Biblical preaching with Motivational speaking
& talking about the
love of God not the wrath or judgment of God. That is why
we train men & women
to rightly divide the Word of truth, & I love the Ministers
that I listen to, that
still calls Sin- Sin.
The world rejects the
topic of Sin, they are comfortable in what they are doing, so
they have justified their
behaviors, twisted scriptures, taken scriptures out of
context to excuse their
behaviors. Sin has a price tag, it affects a person's
health, it separates them
from God, silence their witness, affects other people.
