The Sin List

This blogs shows some lists of sins found in the Bible, and encourages us to evaluate ourselves in the light of these lists, as well as being proactive and preventative in the area of sin.
  1. In the Bible there are a number of places where various sins are listed for us. Consider the following four passages, stopping on each sin listed to consider it individually, and see if you "relate" to any of these sins. Remember "If we confess our sins (in repentance, turning from them) he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1Jn 1:9. God "abundantly pardons" Isaiah 55:7 tells us.

    Pro 6:16-19 "These six things doth the LORD hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him; A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Ro 1:29-31 "Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;" Ga 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things (habitually without repentance before God) shall not inherit the kingdom of God." 2Ti 3:2-5 "For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away."

    It is good for us to evaluate our lives from time to time. But let us not just play "clean up", using 1Jn 1:9, but let us be proactive and "preventative" and live according to Ro 6:11-14. "Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." God bless.
