THE THEOLOGY OF Man
Some feel sin is man’s open and blatant rebellion against the morality set forth in the Scriptures. At times the rebellion can be rather hostel toward God. Some have called sin a mere “missing the mark!”
However, missing said mark conveys the idea of effort. An unsaved man is not aware that such an effort is to be attempted. And even if an unsaved person would make such an attempt, their efforts would prove in vain. I Corinthians 2:14. Man must learn that his religious efforts to satisfy God are at best futile. Leviticus 19:2; Job 42:5; Isaiah 6:1-6; 64:6; Luke 5:8; Romans 7:7-13; Galatians 3:10-12; James 2:8-12; I Peter 1:15; I John 3:4 & Revelation 1:7.
Sin is a blatant rebellion against the law of God, the decrees of God and the Holiness of God. Man’s conduct is rebellion because man’s nature is rebellion. Leviticus 5:2-6; Matthew 5:21; 27; 7:17; 15:19; Romans 6:12-14; 7:8; 17; James 1:14 & I John 1:8.
Man’s sin rebellion toward God is the destruction of his health, his soul, his spirit and his life. Rebellion only destroys. Faithfulness toward God builds life. Psalms 51 ;2-7; Isaiah 1:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Luke 6:45; John 10:10; 15:3; Romans 7:24; Ephesians 4:22; 5:26 & I John 1:7.
The rebellion of sin causes the human mind to be darkens with no understanding. Genesis 6:5; Romans 1:21; 1:26; 1:31; 7:18; I Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 2:1; 2:5; 4:18; 4:29; Colossians 2:13 & Titus 1:5.
The rebellion of all sin has it’s basis and foundation in pride. Isaiah 53:6; John 5:30; Romans 13:10 & II Timothy 3:2.
“THE FOUNDATIONAL BASIS OF ALL SIN IS PRIDE. CONTROL PRIDE AND YOU JUST CONTROLLED SIN!”
