Living (1) Day Without Committing A Sin

Living (1) Day Without Committing A Sin

What is a sin? I would guess that this isn’t something that most people spend hours each day contemplating. Most people I would think are to busy working and pondering their chores they need to get accomplished each day to spend much time being philosophical about things like what is a sin. I really don’t believe that most folks actually care what a sin is or if they are committing some as they traverse through their day. This is of course unless we feel that someone has sinned against us, then we care, a lot of the time when we fill dissed by someone we tend to get angry about it. But yet, if we don’t consider our own actions as to how others take what we do or don’t do, aren’t we being a bit hypocritical? Sins can be something as simple as us letting someone down, especially if we lied to them. Yet there is a huge difference as to whether we let a person down by accident or if it was on purpose. If I tell my son that I will take him to his baseball game at 5 PM but I get tied up at work and forget all about the game I may have sinned/lied in his eyes, but is that a sin? To me, I say no, it was just an accident, something totally unintended. If I knew when I made the promise that I was not going to be able to get off work to take him to his game, then yes, that is a sin against my son, and against God. I say against God because when we know something is a wrong and we do it anyway, that is a sin counted against us and it is an intentional slap against God.

 

I checked with the online dictionary, Google and the Bible to see what they had to say as far as what a sin is, this way this article will be more than just my opinion alone. 1) The online dictionary says sin is: Transgression of Divine Law. A willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle, a behavioral lapse or a great fault or offense. 2) Google says: An immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. I used these two authors of the definition especially for the folks who tend to only believe what secular man has to say about a word or an event. I know that there are some who really don’t believe what the Bible has defined something as, so I wanted you to see how close the online dictionary and Google matched up with the Bible definitions in this case.

 

3) What does the Bible say about what sin is? I got these answers from the index of my King James Version, the first thing it says is: disobedience of God’s law. I am going to forward you a few Scriptures to help you in understanding of the Biblical definition of the word/act of sin.

Omission of known duty.   James 4:17

Comes from mans heart.   Matthew 15:19-20

Kinds of sin: Secret   Psalms   90:8

Shameless   Isiah 3:9

Willfully   Hebrews 10:26

Of Ignorance   Leviticus 4:2

Transgression   1 John 3:4

Unrighteousness   1 John 5:17

 

In the Book of John 8:44 we are told that the sources of sin comes from Satan, the Devil.

Christ’s relationship to sin:

Christ takes away our sins   John 1:29

Christ saves His people from sin   Matthew 1:21

Christ washes (through His blood) us clean from sin   Revelation 1:5

 

Sin: is wrong doing; a transgression against God. We are told to lay aside our sins.   Hebrews 12:1

We are told to resist committing sins.   Hebrews 12:4

To guard the tongue. (To be careful about the words that come out of our mouth) Psalms 39:1

We are told to ‘walk in The Spirit’. This simply means that when we become followers of Christ (Christians) that The Holy Spirit, which is The Spirit of God indwells us and we are supposed to try to walk after the ways of The Spirit of God and not after the carnal ways of the flesh any longer. We all still have the freedom of choice, we can still choose to revert back to ‘living after the flesh’ if we so choose though it will be a very bad decision for our own Soul if we choose to do so.

I am going to close out the ‘Bible part’, (part #3) with something that the Apostle Paul tells us in the Book of Romans 3:28   “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified (cleared of all guilt) by faith without (apart from) the deeds of the Law.” (The Law was the Old Testament which was the “Law” to the Jewish people concerning how they should act, perform their lives.) By the ‘Old Law’ a Jewish person could be saved from Hell simply by following the Laws of God, they did not have to have faith at all to be saved, they just had to follow the Law. With the coming of Christ, upon His resurrection ‘faith’ is required for a person to be saved from the ‘second death’ which is eternal separation from God when a person is condemned to eternal Hell. For without faith it is impossible to please God.

 

Now #4: My thoughts on Sin and why I used the title ‘living (1) day without committing a sin. I know that some people think that it is impossible to go a whole day without committing some kind of a sin just as there are some folks who think that this is a very simple task. People vary on our thoughts even when it is on the same subject matter, even within one family. Sin, sometimes sin can be difficult to define. One person can look at a naked woman and simply think to themselves, ‘beautiful lady’. Yet another person can see a photograph of a woman in a long dress yet it is showing one of her ankles and become overcome with lust, wanting to have sex with her no matter what the cost, physical, financial or spiritual. In these two cases, which one sinned?

 

When I lay down to go to sleep each evening I always take a few moments to say my closing of day prayers. One of the things that I ask the Lord each evening is to please forgive me of any sins that I committed during that day. When I do this I often will think back to the events of my day searching for any know sins that I did, always hoping that I find none. When I do find sins that I know that I am guilty of it embarrasses me that I was so weak, I feel unworthy of even getting to speak with God about asking Him for forgiveness. I try to walk each day without any sin being committed yet the reality is that we often sin and aren’t even aware that we did it. Simple example being that we could do something that was taken wrong by a weaker Christian or a person who was looking at us as a Christian example and this action of ours caused this person to ‘fall away’ from Christ, we didn’t really do anything wrong but there was still a cost paid. Some would call this a sin, some would not. The thing is, the Blood of Christ washes away our sins and keeps us pure, if we are indeed walking after The Spirit and the Heart of Christ. When we are baptized with The Holy Spirit we are a new person, we belong to Jesus Christ, we are no longer our own person, we belong to God.

 

The reason that when the Second Advent (Second Coming OF Christ) happens and we are told that Christs followers will know His voice is because His Spirit indwells us, so of course He knows His own voice. Folks, because The Spirit of Christ (The Holy Spirit) is within us (He, Christ) examines our hearts and our minds to see and to understand why we did or didn’t do as we did in our lives. There is no fooling God. While we are living our life we commit many sins yet God knows when we were trying our best to not sin, He will forgive us, He knows that the flesh is weak. God is not looking for reasons to condemn us, He is looking for reasons to save us.

 

 

(Religion/Life Poem) What is Our Number One Sin

WHAT IS OUR NUMBER ONE SIN

 

Do not be a fool, do not walk in the shoes of the ignorant

Eye to eye with a spitting Cobra does not show others our brass

Hate fumes from the mouth’s of those who are stupid and blind

Careful, even a Demonic Soul like Hitler was able to write a book

 

Who really has the Heart and Soul of a Christ filled man or woman

Delight in the Love of The Lord, not in our bombs, blades, and guns

Laws of God or Man, which one is it that we Humans chose to serve

Faith gives us the strength to battle the Wolves who seek our demise

 

Plant your feet like one who is seeking the Roots of The Tree Of Life

Those who are wicked by choice will try to take away our breath of life

Some are like fodder for Hell’s Fires, it’s just that they don’t know it yet

Be careful who we choose to be our friends in this Chess Game of life

 

What is the worse sin that you personally believe that you have committed

Failing to realize the depth of the meaning of our girl friends first time

Not being in the lives of our young children is a Physical and Moral crime

Hell of a thing if our actions cause our children to miss The Bread Of Life

 

 

In Your Beginning: That You Do Not Understand

 

How is it that you know nothing

How is it that you see nothing

How is it that you do not understand

O’ man, how is it that you’re deaf to my words

You send machines to the planets

But you do not understand

That it is by My hand, and My love

That you are, and that you have

A place on which to stand

 

Lend me your ears now my children

Daughters, Sons, now open your eyes

I will show you now once again plainly

Some things which you have missed

Through ignorance, and worldly deceit

My truth to you has been disguised

Cloaked, by He whom I cast out, with burning eyes

 

In the beginning, as it has been written

There were two creations of mankind

The Gentiles first I planted in all the lands

Yet they were in My eyes A couple absent links

Above the Monkeys, Dogs, and the Swine

They populated the Earth as they were told to do

Then A Royal Bloodline In My Garden I planted

 

I watched sometimes in amusement

But most times in horror

At all the scenes before my eyes unfolded

Through the years your tribes did blend

Through time you looked more like Us

Than the places in which you began

 

I planted My Garden between Urmia and Nod

There I breathed life into the First Earthly Man of God

From his side a mate, to share these pleasures

The rivers flowed peacefully for this Royal Blood Line We gave them

Red Eyes slithered into My Garden We had given to them

Deceived the woman, then she her man

Their eyes now open to their sins, then I did clothe them

I cast My children out into the world of the Heathen Gentiles

Two beginnings, Two Peoples, amazing you cannot understand

 

Open your eyes so you can see it

Blood of My Lamb spilled

For your Souls to be redeemed

Soon I will come to see you

But, will you wish to see Me

If you’re as blind to the end

As you are to your beginning

After My Trumpet sounds, your pleas

Will not be worth one of your pennies

Any Racist Salutes By Any Athlete During National Anthem Should Be Forbidden

 

This past Monday evening I was going to watch the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49’s NFL football game. I had caught the last few moments of the previous game between Pittsburgh and Washington so I decided to stay on channel  and watch some of the next game. I had forgotten about the fact that the backup quarterback for the 49’s would be a focus point during the Anthem, you know whom I am speaking of don’t you? The man who has chosen to stay seated during the Anthem as a protest about how non-whites are treated here in America. Even though I believe that he has the right to make this silent statement I personally do not believe that any American should disgrace our Country in such a manner. A person, especially a person whom makes millions of dollars per year playing a game in a country where only this Country would do that for them, really has much validity in their protest, especially in such a manner. For those of you who are unaware of this young quarterback he is a person whom is half black via his Dad and half white from his Mom and even his Mom spoke out against what he is doing earlier this week.

 

Today this article is not about what the SF quarterback did or did not do Monday night, it is about something totally different that I witnessed during the Anthem. I am a person who is against any and all hate and against any and all racism, as racism is hatred and they are both a sin that should not be encouraged in any way. This article is about some of the other SF players who were standing, and giving the “Black Power” salute. I watched the game up until SF took a seven to zero lead on Washington then I went to bed. During those few moments of broadcast time I did not hear the broadcasters say one word about the players who did this very racist display of hatred. To me a blatant racist salute should not ever be tolerated in any event ever. The cowardliness of the TV broadcasters not commenting on these players doing this is sickening. I have a total belief that if at an NFL game this weekend some of the white players pull out KKK hoods and put them on during the Anthem that all of the media would go crazy, it would be the number one news story, as it should be. Doing a black power salute during the National Anthem just like the wearing of KKK hoods should be grounds for being thrown out of that game at the very least. Black racism is a disgrace to the black race just like white racism is a disgrace to the white race. Racism is pure ignorance, no matter what a person’s color is and this ignorance and hatred has no place in any Country and darn sure not during any Country’s National Anthem.
