In our society, sin is hardly mentioned as we go about our daily activities, with the exception of attending various religious meetings, and many of these would not dare to mention such a concept as sin. Instead of facing evil, people would rather excuse it, deny it or try to “understand” it.

However, if we are going to please God, we must know what sin is and how It has impacted our lives. To know this is to know why we need to be saved.

God Is Morally Perfect – Has No Sin

1 John 1:5 ¶ And this is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

People Have Chosen To Sin

James 1:13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
1:14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
