The TRUTH about SIN


James 1:21

King James Version

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness 

and superfluity of naughtiness, 

and receive with meekness the engrafted word, 

which is able to save your souls.

What is sin?

How to conquer sin?

What happens to sinners?

What happens to the righteous?

Scripture gives you the answers.

What does the Bible say about sin?

James 4:4

King James Version

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, 

know ye not that the friendship of the world 

is enmity with God? 

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world 

is the enemy of God.

James 4:16

King James Version

16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: 

all such rejoicing is evil.

Matthew 12:31-32

King James Version

31 Wherefore I say unto you, 

All manner of sin and blasphemy 

shall be forgiven unto men: 

but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost 

shall not be forgiven unto men.

32 And whosoever speaketh a word 

against the Son of man, 

it shall be forgiven him: 

but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, 

it shall not be forgiven him, 

neither in this world, 

neither in the world to come.

To know about sin, you must know what's not sin.

John 1:1-5

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; 

and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; 

and the darkness comprehended it not.

1 John 1:5

King James Version

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him,

and declare unto you

that God is light, 

and in him is no darkness at all.

If we are of the light:

1 John 1:7

King James Version

7 But if we walk in the light, 

as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us 

from all sin.

If we say we have not sinned:

1 John 1:8

King James Version

8 If we say that we have no sin, 

we deceive ourselves,

and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:10

King James Version

10 If we say that we have not sinned, 

we make him a liar, 

and his word is not in us.

All have sinned.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

But if we confess our sins:

1 John 1:9

King James Version

9 If we confess our sins, 

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, 

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We need humility to accept we have sinned.

James 4:10

King James Version

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, 

and he shall lift you up.

James 4:9

King James Version

9 Be afflicted, 

and mourn, 

and weep: 

let your laughter be turned to mourning, 

and your joy to heaviness.

There is no hiding from the TRUTH of SCRIPTURE.

Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

How to conquer sin?

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.

Cleanse your hands, 

ye sinners;

ye double minded.

when the wicked are cut off,

and save them, 

because they trust in him.
