    Living for Christ

    This is the last post of my series on sin and, instead of breaking down individual sins or what we should or should not do as Christians, I feel the Lord is leading me instead to talk a bit about personal convictions. There are some things in the Bible that God tells us specifically not to do and if we do them, we are sinning. But, if you are reading God’s Word as should be, you’ll already know what those are and some I’ve already broken down. However, there are some “grey” areas in our lives that the Bible doesn’t specifically talk about and it is those areas that I…

    Sexual Immorality

    Sexual immorality is a very big deal in the world today and especially in the church. God talks about it a lot in His Word: there are 23 verses on “sexual immorality”, 45 on “adultery”, and 36 on the word “immoral.” And, of course, there are other ways you can phrase the same concept to find even more verses on these subjects. I could talk a lot about this subject, but most of it would be based on non-Christians and how they live, which is not the point of this blog or this series on sin. As I have said in every post in this series, these posts are all…

    The Sins from Pride

    Pride can be a huge problem in any society, Christian or non-Christian, and I believe the sins from pride are something we all struggle with at some time or another. I’m going to continue my series on sin today with three sins: arrogance, boastfulness, and people without love. I believe all three stem from pride. Let me just remind you guys that these posts are for Christians, those who claim to follow Jesus and believe in God’s Word (the Bible). This is not for non-Christians because I would never try to hold them to the standards of our faith. So, before I break this down, what is pride? The dictionary…

    It’s All About the Attitude

    Today I’m continuing my series on sin. If you want to check out other posts in the series you can head over to the beginning of the series where I have links to every subject I’ve written about on sin, though many of them are in the same post (usually 3-5 subjects per post) based on their similarities. Before I begin, let me remind you that I’m addressing Christians, people who claim they are followers of Jesus Christ. None of these posts are for non-Christians because they don’t have the same morals and beliefs as we do. We are to follow God’s Word, therefore I don’t hold non-believers to the same…

    The Relationship Killers

    In today’s post, I want to talk about sins that kill relationships (any relationship, not just marriage): gossip, slander, no understanding, no mercy, and bitterness. Gossip and Slander Gossip is a big deal in the church today. We love to talk about people, though we often use the guise of “prayer.” I grew up in many different churches but I always heard the same things. “Oh, Mary, let me tell you what Julia did so that we can pray for her.” You don’t really want to pray for the person, you just want to tell people what he or she has done. I’m just as guilty of it! I’ve talked…

    Tell the Truth

    Telling the truth can be extremely hard for any Christian. It seems like it would be easy, but the truth can hurt, it can cause conflict, and it can be confrontational. That is why many of us would rather avoid it. Not that we want to lie, but rather we would prefer to not say anything at all. Today’s post is going to be about four similar areas: deceit, stealing, swindling, and lies. Let me remind you that these posts on sin are for Christians, not non-Christians because Christians share the same morality and all of us are supposed to follow God’s Word for our lives. Deceit Deceit is defined…

    Don’t Let the Sun Go Down

    Six of the sins I listed in the beginning of my series on sin all pretty much go together: murder, strife, malice, anger, rage, and brawling – they are all a progression of one sin. Let me define them all real quick just so we know exactly what we’re discussing. Strife = angry or bitter disagreement over fundamental issues; conflict Malice = the intention or desire to do evil; ill will Anger = a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility Rage = violent, uncontrollable anger Brawling = fight or quarrel in a rough or noisy way Murder = the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another Okay, stay with me here in this…

    The Dangerous Threesome

    There are three very dangerous sins that, in a way, go together: greed, envy, and idolatry. I say that they are dangerous because they lead to many other sins and ultimately pull us away from following the Lord Jesus and living the way He wants us to live. I talked in another post about how godless our society has become or has really always been but now it’s just more out in the open, but this series on sin is not for the non-Christians, it is for those who claim to be born-again followers of Jesus and struggle with sin, just as we all do. We live in a world…

    A Series on Sin

    Now, I realize that this new blog series I’m beginning may not be popular. In fact, I really doubt many people will like it. But I also feel it’s important to talk about both for your sake and for mine. My new vlog series is still on becoming the Proverbs 31 woman, but my series for my written blog posts is going to be on sin and what the Bible says about it. You may be wondering why I am doing this series and my answer is that I don’t believe enough Christians talk openly about sin. We preach love and talk about not judging others, and that’s great, but…

    Judging Others

    When reading my last post “A Godless Society” you may have noticed that I was getting rather heated on the subject of judgment. That’s because it is a topic of which I am very passionate and I get emotional when talking or writing about it. There are only a handful of things in life that make me feel passionate – marriage is one, but judgment is another. You see, I think Christians are the most judgmental group of people ever in existence. We know that Jesus is the only way and that God’s Word is true – and that’s great! But then we like to shove those truths down the…
