    What is a sin?

    Sin is the disobedience to the LORD God’s Laws and is unrighteous, unjust, immoral, and wrong. The five types of sin, transgression, unrighteousness, omission of known duty, faithlessness, and foolish acts constitute a sin against the LORD God. This chapter encourages you to have faith that the LORD God has convicted you of your sins, and dissuades you from looking for new sins, or focusing on the old ones. You will learn to focus on what the LORD God is placing in your heart concerning sin and change what you can as fast as you can and have confidence that those deeper sins that seem impossible to remove at this point, will become easier to overcome as your walk with Jesus becomes steady.

    John 3:4

    Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

    22. Sin is the disobedience to the LORD God ‘s Laws.

    1 John 5:17

    All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

    23. Sin is unrighteous. It is unjust, immoral, and wrong.

    24. There are different degrees of sin. Not all sin is unforgivable and punished by death.

    James 4:17

    Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

    25. A person that knows to do good works and does not do them is sinning.

    26. A sin for one person may not be a sin for another person.

    Romans 14:22-23

    Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

    27. Faith is between each individual and God. The LORD God decides how much faith you will have, and he will transform you by the renewing of your mind so that you know what is good, acceptable and the perfect will of God. Conversely, the LORD God will reveal to each individual what their sins are.

    28. A sin is committed if a person believes a certain truth, then doubts that truth and acts on his doubt.

    29. If a person’s faith allows him to act, and he does that act in faith, he will be happy.

    30. If a person’s faith allows him to act, yet he condemns with guilt, doubt, punishment, or fear on the act, he will be unhappy.

    31. If it is not of faith, it is a sin.

    Proverbs 24:9

    The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

    32. It is a sin to plan or think wickedly or recklessly.

    Review

    There are five types of sin. These types of sin are:

    1. Transgression (22) Disobedience to the LORD God’s Law

    2. Unrighteousness (23, 24) Unjust, immoral, and wrong

    3. Omission of known duty (25, 26) Failing to do good works

    4. Faithless (27-31) Failing to act on faithful conviction

    5. Foolish acts (32) Wicked or reckless planning

    When we first started Becker Bible Studies, we passed out a list of sins assembled and classified from the Ten Commandments. Similar lists of sin are popular with many of the major religions in teaching their students the definition of sin. Through the years, we discovered that this list of classified sins created many problems that failed to address the LORD God’s complete and true Will regarding sin. No man or church can conclusively construct a list of sins. Man’s relationship with God develops new requirements, thus, new possibilities for deeper interpretations of God’s laws. Furthermore, because of the all-encompassing nature of the LORD God, man might be unaware of sins that are truly sins to the LORD God. Just because a sin has not yet been convicted by the LORD God on a person’s heart, does not make it any less of a sin.

  • 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝗪𝗜𝗟𝗟 𝗙𝗔𝗟𝗟 - Joshua 6

    Are you facing a challenge in your life that is so huge, you feel you’ll never be able to overcome it? When Israel and their leader Joshua encountered the impenetrable enemy city of Jericho, it must have felt hopeless to most of God’s people.

    God said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand.” Notice that this was spoken in the past tense. If Joshua had only “seen” with his physical eyes, he would have wondered why God had said such a thing. His foes were still barricaded within the city, as strong as ever.

    When God declares something, it is already a done deal— regardless of what we see in the natural. In order for His Word to manifest in the physical realm, we have to act on what He says in faith. Many times, this goes against our common sense, because God is not common.

    This principle is exemplified in what happened next. God instructed Joshua’s army to march around Jericho with seven priests bearing horns before the Ark of the Covenant. On the seventh day, the priests were to blow their horns and everyone would shout as loud as they could. This would result in the walls of Jericho imploding.

    None of God’s words made any kind of strategic sense. They did not appeal to Joshua’s intellect. He nevertheless obeyed in faith, and the walls of Jericho fell as a result. God’s instructions for victory may not make sense to us, but we have to decide how badly we want to win.

    Sadly, many of us insist on doing things our way, which only leads to worn-out discouragement and defeat. If the means of victory with God appear illogical, we will instead rely on reason, the advice of others, and our own fortitude. Yet, the walls remain high. For them to crumble, our pride has to be the first to fall.

    My friend, God has spoken in the past tense to whatever obstacle the enemy has placed in front of you. If you humble yourself before Him by obeying His Word in faith, your wall will fall!

    Press on!
    Eric

  • Foundation of Jesus Christ - #1 - Introduction
    by Kathy L McFarland

    https://kathylmcfarland.org/2023/10/23/1-bi100_1-the-foundation-of-jesus-christ/

    Level 0-1 (Questioning Seculars/New Christians

    This course covers the journey from Salvation to Baptism to Death to Resurrection to the New Heaven and New Earth. It is a simple walk from one spiritual principle to another, but it is a complex trek that covers four important theological concepts of Soteriology (Salvation), (Bibliology (Bible), Christology (Christ), Eschatology (Last Things).

    Underlying Principles

    When this course is completed successfully, the student will have a strong and deep understanding of the concepts of the principles of Salvation, Baptism, Death, Resurrection, New Heaven, and New Earth. Unlike most Seminary courses, these principles are taught together to make the student fully aware of how it all ties together. Once these principles are deeply understood, more specific teachings will come from this journey later in their future studies.

    What is the foundation of Jesus Christ?

    A foundation is prepared base on which structure rests. It is the beginning or first principle of a system of truth. A person who comes to the Lord Jesus Christ, and hears and does what he says, builds a foundation on a rock. When trouble comes, that person’s life cannot be shaken. The person who lays his foundation on the rock, must first dig deeply into the things of God which are normally hidden and above man’s scrutiny. This study lays a solid foundation of Jesus Christ in a Christian, using the six principles of the doctrine of Christ as written in Hebrews 6:1-3 in the Word of God.

    A foundation is a natural or prepared ground or base on which some structure rests.

    It is the beginning or first principle of a system of truth.

    Luke 6:46-49

    And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

    1. A person who comes to Lord Jesus, and hears and does what he says, builds a foundation on a rock. When trouble comes, that person’s life cannot be shaken.

    2. That person who lays his foundation on the rock must first dig deeply into the things of God which is normally hidden and above man’s scrutiny.

    3. A person who comes to Lord Jesus, and hears what he says, but does not do it, builds a foundation upon the earth. When trouble comes, that person’s life is greatly ruined.

    4. The typology for “house” is the dwelling place of the soul.

    5. The typology for “earth” is the affairs, interests, and pursuits of natural life.

    6. The typology for “rock” is a person’s spiritual life in Christ. (This typology speaks of the Rock as spoken of in 1 Cor 10:4)

    7. Therefore, if a person looks for the deep things of God, and maintains a spiritual life in Christ, then his life will not be disturbed when trouble comes. If a person maintains a life concerned with the affairs, interests, and pursuits of natural life, then that person’s life will be ruined when trouble comes.

    8. A person who digs deep into the things of God, hears, and does what Jesus says is saved. A person who hears but does not do what Jesus says is destroyed...

  • 𝗗𝗘𝗡 𝗢𝗙 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗦 (Matthew 21:12-17)

    We are familiar with the account of Jesus overturning tables in the temple, but what significance does that hold for us today?

    In the outer temple court, merchants were selling sacrificial animals like doves at exorbitantly high prices. This was done with the approval of the corrupt priests, who cared little about the spiritual condition of those in attendance. Since this court was the only place Gentiles could gather, the noisy trading created a literal barrier to connecting with God.

    When Jesus came upon the scene, He was enraged. Fashioning a whip of cords, Jesus flipped the tables of the money changers and declared, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of thieves.’”

    The “thieves” wording is directly linked to Jesus’ contrast of Satan to Himself in John 10:10: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

    Jesus loves us so much that He angrily opposes anything that gets in the way of a true relationship with God, which is built upon worshiping Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:23). As proof of that, Jesus immediately focused on healing the blind and the lame in attendance.

    It’s easy to point fingers at hypocritical church figures, but we must first examine the trading we conduct. When we buy into a powerless theology, we are constructing another barrier to the abundant life Jesus spoke of. If we care more about our religion than seeing people set free, we shouldn’t be surprised if Jesus kicks over our table.

    Expand your perception of Jesus to include the fact He will always fight for you. If the “thief” is keeping you in bondage and out of victory, imagine Jesus taking a whip to him in his own den. He fought for you so much that He was crucified and delivered from death to fight for you still.

    Press on!

  • 1 minute in Philemon

    How did Paul show meekness?

    9 times Paul referenced meekness in his writings, and in his final letter to Philemon he displays his own meekness with style and grace!

    On a high level, this is a communication to Philemon to compel him to take Onesimus back. Onesimus was once Philemon's servant, but had run away and somehow connected to Paul. And then Onesimus became a child of God, likely through Paul's influence, and is now seeking to be reconciled to Philemon.

    And it's due to all this that Paul writes this letter.

    Now Paul could have simply exerted his authority as an apostle and commanded Philemon to take Onesimus back, but that wouldn't have been good for either man and certainly would not have fostered a renewing of a relationship between them.

    Therefore, Paul "made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a" prisoner, "in the likeness of" a friend, and asked Philemon to take Onesimus back! (Philippians 2:7-8)
