"SIN AND THE SAINTS"

INTRODUCTION

1. I WANT TO BEGIN TODAY BY ASKING YOU 3 QUESTIONS.
THE FIRST QUESTION: CAN A CHRISTIAN SIN? WELL,
THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ALL CHRISTIANS SIN. AS A
MATTER FACT, ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD THERE
IS ONLY ONE CHRISTIAN WHO HAS EVER LIVED WHO NEVER
SINNED AND THAT WAS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.1 PETER
LIED. DAVID COMMITTED ADULTERY. MOSES WAF A
MURDERER. BUT NOT ONLY DOES THE BIBLE TELL US THAT
CHRISTIANS SIN. EXPERIENCE TELLS US THAT CHRISTIANS
SINS IS THERE ANY CHRISTIAN HERE TODAY WHO WOULD
BE WILLING TO RAISE HIS HAND AND SAY I HAVE NEVER
SINNED AS A CHRISTIAN OR I DO NOT SIN NOW AS A
CHRISTIAN? WELL, OF COURSE NO ONE WOULD DO THAT.

2. MY NEXT QUESTION: IF A CHRISTIAN SINS, CAN HE
LOSE HIS SALVATION? I BELIEVE THE BIBLE GIVES AN
UNEQUIVOCAL AND EMPHATIC NO TO THAT QUESTION, BUT
THERE ARE THO-SE WHO BELIEVE THAT A CHRISTIAN CAN
LOSE HIS SALVATION, NOW IF YOU BELIEVE THAT LET
ME ASK YOU A QUESTION. WHAT CAN MAKE A CHRISTIAN
LOSE HIS SALVATION? YOU SAY, SIN. MY NEXT QUESTION
THEN IS HOW MUCH SIN? AND WHAT KIND OF SIN CAN MAKE
YOU LOSE YOUR SALVATION? YOU SEE GOD DEMANDS
ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. AND IF SIN COULD MAKE YOU
LOSE YOUR SALIVATION THEN IT WOULD ONLY TAKE «
OF 1 SIN TO DAMN YOU FOREVER. LISTEN I WOULDN'T
TRUST THE BEST 15 MINUTES I HAVE EVER LIVED IN
MY LIFE TO GET ME INTO HEAVEN. NO, AS WE WILL FIND
OUT AS WE STUDY 11 JOHN, A CHRISTIAN CANNOT LOSE HIS
SALVATION.

3. WHEN A CHRISTIAN DOES SIN, WHAT DOES HE DO?
WHAT CAN HE DO? WHAT SHOULD HE DO? JOHN IS CONCERNED
WITH ANSWERING THAT QUESTION.

4. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING ABOUT SALVATION.
IN THE BIBLE SALVATION IS GIVEN IN 3 TENSES.
THERE IS A PAST A PRESENT AND A FUTURE TENSE
TO SALVATION. YOU SEE I HAVE BEEN SAVED FROM THE
PENALTY OF SIN. I AM BEING SAVED FROM THE POWER
OF SIN. AND ONE DAY I WILL BE SAVED FROM THE
PRESENCE OF SIN. I HAVE BEEN SAVED FROM THE PENALTY
OF SIN BY THE DEATH OF JESUS ...
