    Cool Sin

    SIN-Any Act oR Belief Contrary To Gods Word
    Rom 6:12
    12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
    Eph 2:2-3
    2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
    3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
    James 1:13-15
    13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
    14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
    15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
    Rom 7:5
    5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.
    Rom 7:8
    8 But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead.
    Rom 7:17-18
    17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
    18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.
    1 Cor 10:12-14
    12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
    13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
    14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
    Heb 12:1-2
    1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
    2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
    Col 3:1-2
    1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
    2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
    Heb 11:6
    6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
    Rom 14:23
    23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.
    Rom 10:8
    8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
    John 16:8-9
    8 "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    9 "of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
    1 Cor 15:56
    56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
    James 4:17
    17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
    Heb 10:26-29
    26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
    27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
    28 Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
    29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
    Rom 8:1-4
    1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
    2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
    3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,
    4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
    Rom 13:8
    8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
    Gal 5:14
    14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
    Gal 5:24
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    Mark 7:20-23
    20 And He said, "What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.
    21 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    22 "thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
    23 "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."
    (NKJ)

    xxx Sin is refered to as transgression of the law. Everything that comes out of Gods mouth is law. Whether it be the old testament law of sin and death. Or it be the new testament law of Christ. Some say sin is being outside the grace of God. We can do the right thing for the wrong reason and that is sin. We can do the wrong thing for the right reason and that is sin. But no matter how you personally want to define it. It is what will send us to hell. There are three types of sin. The kind that you dont have to repent of because if your walking in love, love will cover a multitude of sins. You need to find out what love is first.Then you have the sins that you must repent of or your not forgiven. And the third type, the unforgiveable sin blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. If you dont know what love is you cant walk in love. So every sin you do must be repented of. If you dont know who the Holy Spirit is you cant walk after the Spirit. Sin is not being in Gods will.

    Anything not done in the Word of faith is sin.

    James 4:17
    17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
    (NKJ)


    Rom 14:23
    23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.
    (NKJ)

    I Jn 1:4-10
    4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
    5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
    6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
    7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
    (NKJ)


    2 Pet 3:9
    9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
    (NKJ)

    A person must repent to be forgiven. If you dont repent your sin is marked down in a book you will have to answer for on judgment day.

    [Mat 18:21-22
    [21] Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" [22] Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

    [Mat 12:34-37
    [34] "Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
    [35] "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
    [36] "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
    [37] "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

    [Rev 20:12
    [12] And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

    II. THE DEFINITION OF SIN

    1849
    Sin is an offense against reason, truth, and right conscience; it is failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity. It has been defined as "an utterance, a deed, or a desire contrary to the eternal law."121

    1850 Sin is an offense against God: "Against you, you alone, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in your sight."122 Sin sets itself against God's love for us and turns our hearts away from it. Like the first sin, it is disobedience, a revolt against God through the will to become "like gods,"123 knowing and determining good and evil. Sin is thus "love of oneself even to contempt of God."124 In this proud self- exaltation, sin is diametrically opposed to the obedience of Jesus, which achieves our salvation.125

    1851 It is precisely in the Passion, when the mercy of Christ is about to vanquish it, that sin most clearly manifests its violence and its many forms: unbelief, murderous hatred, shunning and mockery by the leaders and the people, Pilate's cowardice and the cruelty of the soldiers, Judas' betrayal - so bitter to Jesus, Peter's denial and the disciples' flight. However, at the very hour of darkness, the hour of the prince of this world,126 the sacrifice of Christ secretly becomes the source from which the forgiveness of our sins will pour forth inexhaustibly.


    121 St. Augustine, Contra Faustum 22:PL 42,418; St. Thomas Aquinas, STh I-II,71,6.
    122 Ps 51:4.
    123 Gen 3:5.
    124 St. Augustine, De civ. Dei 14,28:PL 41,436.
    125 Cf. Phil 2:6-9.
    126 Cf. Jn 14:30.

    Thats a fairly stupid question. Of course we do. We gave you your Bible, remember? Your thread is about "Sin" so I gave you a nice definition of Sin. You want to talk about repentance? I can educate you about that too.

    1490 The movement of return to God, called conversion and repentance, entails sorrow for and abhorrence of sins committed, and the firm purpose of sinning no more in the future. Conversion touches the past and the future and is nourished by hope in God's mercy.

    Jesus intended for His Church to teach about repentance and sin. Jesus never intended for people to figure it out for themselves using scripture alone. Therefore, your request is one that can lead people into error and wrong conclusions, and I will not buy into your premise. I suggest your read this: Click Here

    I dont know where you got that idea. But God wrote the bible in simplicity so that any one who could believe it could find the truth. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit. To many people try it without the Holy Spirit and it cant be done. But with the Holy Spirit nothing will be hidden.

    WALK ALONE-NO MENTOR BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
    Phil 2:12-16
    12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;
    13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
    14 Do all things without complaining and disputing,
    15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
    16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
    Rom 10:17
    17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
    Heb 4:12-16
    12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
    14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
    15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
    16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
    Mark 3:15
    15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons:
    Mark 1:34
    34 Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
    Matt 7:22-24
    22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'LORD, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
    23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
    24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
    Matt 17:19
    19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast him out?"
    Matt 17:20-21
    20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
    21 "However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."
    Phil 2:12-16
    12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;
    Heb 7:25-26
    25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
    26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
    Matt 13:49
    49 "So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,
    Rom 13:10
    10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
    1 Pet 3:9
    9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
    1Thes 5:15
    15 See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
    Rom 12:17
    17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

    I have seen some preachers teach that. They make cripples out of the congregation. So that the congregation is worshiping the preacher instead of God the Father.

    [Mat 23:1-2, 8-10
    [1] Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples,
    [2] saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. ...
    [8] "But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.
    [9] "Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.
    [10] "And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
