What is the Problem with sin?
Sin is the Great Dilemma for all of mankind.
Sin is real.
1 John 1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth
is not in us.
1 John 1:10
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word
is not in us.
Sin is universal.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Sin is a huge problem.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
No rest from sin's contamination
But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose
waters cast up mire and dirt.
No peace with the wickedness of sin
There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
Continuation under the wrath of God
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that
believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God
abideth on him.
Continuation under the condemnation of God
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not
is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.

of the soul
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall
be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2 Th 1:8
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that
obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Th 1:9
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence
of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
Sin keeps from the Saviour of eternal death
ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he
(The Saviour), ye shall die
in your sins.
Sin assigns to the Lake of Fire
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving,
and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and
idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which
burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
God's answer to
God's love sent Jesus
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting
God's love sent The Saviour to die in the place of
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
God's love put your sin on The Saviour
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray
(into sin); we have turned
every one to his own way (away from
God); and the Lord hath laid on him
(Jesus) the iniquity
(sin) of us all.
God's love sent His Son to die for sin
1 Pet 1:18-19

as of a lamb without blemish and without spot
(no sin or results of sin)
