Part 9: The Four Monarchs
Series: The Epistle To The Romans
Stuart Briscoe
Romans 5:12-21

It may have occurred to Paul that he had written much about sin in individual lives without describing either the vast extent of sin's domination or how sin came to be such a problem in the first place. He used the word "reign" to describe sin's domination but balanced the expressions by talking about four monarchs.

I. The Reign of Sin.

A. Sin entered. v. 12
1. Through one man-Adam.
a. Breaking a command. v. 14

b. Trespass. v. 15

c. Disobedience. v. 19

d. Judgment. v. 16

e. Condemnation. v. 16

B. Sin increased. v. 20
1. Through adding the law. v. 20 (Also vv. 13-14)

2. The many were made sinners. v. 19
a. Federal headship-Adam acting on behalf of all.


Part 10: Should Saints Sin?
Series: The Epistle To The Romans
Stuart Briscoe
Romans 6:1-23

Richard Lovelace wrote in his book, "Dynamics of Spiritual Life", "Three Aberrations from the Biblical teaching on justification-cheap grace, legalism and moralism-still dominate the church today." Paul, in this passage, turns his attention to the first century equivalent of "cheap grace."

I. Saints' Relationship to Sin.

A. Moralist.
1. Man's effort without God.

2. Sanctification without justification.

B. Legalist.
1. Application of rules.

2. Imposition of disciplines.

C. Cheap grace.
1. If grace abounds where sin abounds…

2. Let's keep grace flowing by sinning more.

D. None of the above-"We died to sin."
