What does the Bible say about Sin


Part 2

Sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned. Romans 5:12 (NIV)Bible quoteWherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.Romans 5 (KJV) verse 12

Man's direct disobedience resulted in the judgment God placed on the human race. Each person must give an account of himself to God.

As sin has progressed and gained momentum, modern man seems to have lost his ability to be shocked. Behavior that was once considered abominable is now acceptable. One thing is certain, however. There are many new sinners today, but there aren't any new sins, just the old ones clothed in different rags. . . . .where can the moral code be found?

The good news is because Jesus Christ came and died on the cross and rose from the dead, we are not in a hopeless position. We can be reconciled to God and put back in right relationship with Him by accepting His provision for sin, His Son Jesus Christ.

God does not offer "Band-Aids when you are bleeding to death, but He gave a life-saving transfusion, the blood of His Son. God is not responsible for sin, but His love led Him to send His Son to die for our sins.

Look, Father, look on His beloved face
And only look on us as seen in Him.
Look not on our misusing of Thy grace
Our prayer so languid and our faith so dim
For, lo, between our sins and their reward,
We place the passion of Thy Son, our Lord.
