People must come to recognize sin for what it is

Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately. -1 Timothy 1:8
Christ for All Nations

“No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.” 

– 1 John 3:9

“Secular [irreligious] humanists make excuses for evil, or worse, deny its existence, or coddle it by refusing to confront it. Consequently, they feed it. Jesus did not compromise, nor negotiate, with evil.”-Called, Winter 2011; Jerusalem Prayer Team

The best studies trace the cause of crime to broken homes and to the lack of moral and spiritual formation during childhood.Chuck Colsen, Jubilee Extra June 2004

 It is written: “sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.” -Genesis 4:7 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” -Romans 3:23

and how sin plays out in “real time” life; that is, man’s evil side! Hollywood did not create the reality of good and evil; rather, they exploit it to make $ profit. Entities like the local Police and FBI deal with sin and sinners constantly; however, most do not label or recognize human wrongdoing as “sin,” transgression against divine law (The Living God!) which are immutable by human authorities. Modern courts gloss over the issue of sin and look only at their manmade codified law and therefore DO NOT BRING JUSTICE! Discerning the present time

“but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.” -James 1:14

“The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred and discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissentions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.” -Galatians 6:19-21

“He who despises his neighbor sins.” -Proverbs 14:21

“You see- sinners cannot save sinners. We are all trapped at the bottom of the pit and none of us can pull others out. Technology cannot touch the need of the human heart. Only the Almighty Himself can reach out to us and fulfill our greatest longings.” –Reinhard Bonnke, Christ for All Nations

Twice imprisoned David Russell referred to his first sentence as the state’s attempt at ‘rehabilitation’- where he learned ‘was how to do crime a little better so I wouldn’t get caught.’ His second stint- when he participated in IFI- was a time of ‘transformation: changing the heart’ through a relationship with Christ.” Jubilee, Winter 2005, Prison Fellowship

“The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind (carnal mind) is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s laws, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.” -Romans 8:6-8

“Abraham Lincoln called [the Bible] ‘the best gift God has ever given to man … But for it [the Bible] we could not know right from wrong.'” The American Presidency Project

The reality of sin in this world is evident! no class of individuals or occupation is exempt! Take a look at the headlines:

“Sin always leads to hiding and doing things in the dark (Genesis 3:7). Sin always breaks relationships between loved ones. Sin always leads to shame and fear (v.8). Sin always leads to blaming others and passing the responsibility on to someone else (vv. 12-13). -Frank Moore, Word Action; Spring 2013

Obviously, the government has failed in its attempt to change lives. So who holds the answer? Christ Jesus’, Yeshua’s True Church!

People claiming to be “christian” have committed atrocities including anti-Semitic persecutions when no real Christian would commit these sins (or at least would have repented if he/she sinned that way). Instead, many who have claimed Christ, have caused “the way of truth” to be blasphemed (2 Peter 2:2).

The Offer of Life or Death:

It is written: “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, ‘Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, ‘Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?’ No the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”Deuteronomy 30:11-20

GOOD NEWS:  “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” -John 1:29 “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” -1 Timothy 1:15
