Do we have to sin?

The Fall and the Redemption

By Abraham Israel




Do man have to sin? Why do men choose to sin?

Man is a fallen being. His spirit is dead. Due to one man’s [i.e. Adam’s] disobedience all have fallen short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23). That means all have sinned against God. If we try to be religious that is also waste because God rejects religion because it is made by man to substitute God-longing eternity in every man. Religion is not God ordained thing for any human, but a relationship with God is what was designed by Him for every human to experience and cherish. Religion always says Do! Do! Do! And God says it is all done for you, only believe what I say and live an abundant life in this planet earth!

And God’s Word says,
“For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10). If a religious man breaks one law in His religious pursuit of God, he is guilty of breaking all the laws of God and deserves only Hell, such is the perfection and justice of a just creator God. So religion is not the answer.

Every man should not only realize his need for God, but also should realize that he is a sinner and that he doesn’t have the ability to please God and be perfect in his own strength. If man realizes this, then God has an answer for this sin problem. The problem of sin was solved when God sent His only begotten Son to this world to die for us and reconcile us back to God inspite of our sinful condition so that we can live a fearless and abundant life of peace with God and men
(John 3:16; Rom 5:8; 8:3, 4). This abundant life is a life of overcoming sinful habits through the power of the Spirit of God who lives in us to empower us.

The Bible says,
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). God sent his Son and condemned sin in the flesh and has justified all who believe in Him. And “He made the spirit of just men [those who believe in Jesus] perfect” (Heb 12:23). And through this spirit man He will speak to us and will makes us strong to over come sin. So man does not have to sin.

Man chooses to sin because he has a free will. And he chooses to sin rather than obeying God and be under His authority. Man chooses to have his own way and enjoys the world rather than God. God says in His Word,
“And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” (1 John 2:17). This enjoyment of doing sin and having our own way by rejecting God is not for ever, it is temporary and that too it can be continued only till a man dies and after that he will be judged by God for all his works after the final day of this existence of this present earth. After this the people who have sought God and His relationship with Him through His Son Jesus will live with God forever and ever in continual joy and bliss.

This is what the Bible says as, the man who does the will of God lives for ever. Where? In the blessed new planet earth. It is up to man to believe in what God says or do his own will. God says sin is not the problem, but man obedience to what He says is?When we believe what God has said in His word, we do not become instantly a sinless saint, but from the moment we believe His word we become saints who are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ the Lamb of God and are being perfected day by day in to the image of Jesus Christ our Lord. Hence a believer in Christ will choose not to sin habitually and intentionally by resisting the devil through the power of the Holy Spirit who resides in every believer! Hallelujah!

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
