What About Sin?
By Luke Shira

The first teaching we have concerning sin is that everyone does it. There is no perfect person. Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Since the time of

Adam and Eve, sin has been a curse of man, not because he sins, but because he refuses to repent of the sins he committed. James writes that a man has tried to blame God for his sins. “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempted he any man” (James 1:13).
Sin will be revealed in three ways: 1. A guilty conscience – Joseph’s brethren (Genesis 42:21); Jesus reached the conscience of those who were about to stone the woman taken in adultery in
John 8:7, “…He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” “And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one.” 2. The scriptures say the effects of sin will make some “Weak and sickly” (1Corinthians 11:29, 30). Paul told Timothy, “Some men’s sin are opened beforehand, going before to judgment, and some men they follow after” (1Timothy 5:24). 3. All unforgiving sins will meet us in the day of judgment. “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel” (Romans 2:16).

Luke 12:2 says the sins will be exposed, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed, neither hid, that shall not be known.” In Ecclesiastes 12:14, we read. “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Sin can be easily classed in several ways.
1 Open sins, those that everyone knows about (1Timothy 5:24).
2. Personal sins, the sins of Ananias and Sapphira; they lied to the Holy Spirit. 3. Congregational sins mentioned in 1Corinthians such immorality, puffed up, no mourning. Many sin today – feel secure, but they should remember the words of the Master in Luke 12:2. Nothing covered that will not be revealed.

What should we do with our sins today? Try not to hide them (Proverbs 28:13; 2. Confess them according to 1John 1: ask God’s forgiveness. 3. Live a forgiven life.
