Why Do We Commit Sins Daily?
In Christian community, there are some wrongdoings we tag as “sins before God”, while we overlook the rest. As always, we then point accusing fingers to defectors in this regard. The point is, Sin is Sin before God!
It’s all types of sin that creates a “rift” between us and God; thus separating us from His will over our lives.
However, the definition of Sin could be an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. It can also be seen as an offense against religious or moral law.
The book of Romans confirms that, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Every person born of a woman is considered a sinner before God.
We should know that all sins are parallel before God, which includes: telling lies in order to defend yourself in some certain circumstances as we put it; such is still a SIN before God. We should know that all sins need to be confessed before God for pardoning.
Hell As An Eternal Place For Sinners
HERE ARE THE LIST OF SINS WE TEND TO OVERLOOK.
Self-Righteousness: Often times, I hear people say “but I don’t steal, hate or kill. I am always on my own”. They make this claim to justify themselves as “righteous persons”, but how does God view self-righteousness?
Romans 3:10 also confirms that there is none righteous, no not one.
Don’t validate yourself until God justifies you and this will be done only by accepting Jesus as your LORD and Personal Savior.
Worry and Anxiety: Simply put – being nervous or unease about something with an uncertain outcome. Proverbs 12:25 declares that “anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad”.
Being “overly worried” about a particular issue might not be a sin but think of it this way, that due to you being anxious, you find it hard to pray or study the BIBLE.
Additionally the devil might be bringing some Ungodly suggestions to you which might lead you to sin.
Pride: It is a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements. We talk of pride all the time as a normal lifestyle in Christian fold.
But it was the major cause of Satan’s dethronement from Heaven, that is, apart from violating the commands of God. Let’s be honest, pride makes you feel better than others.
Adding to this, it is a basic component of what we fight today in our society – Racism – the feeling of one race being superior than the other.
Gossip: It is the casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details which are not confirmed as true.
Apparently, people have destroyed other people’s self esteem through gossip and the person involved felt like a wounded lion.
Do not forget: we are deliberating on those things we don’t count as sins.
Gluttony and Covetousness: The Bible clearly says the little foxes that spoil the vines. We desire things we know that we can’t afford, and in the process, we run into debt just to get those things.
Remember I Timothy 6:6 says, “But godliness with contentment is great gain”.
Judgement: The ability to make considered decisions come to sensible conclusions.
“You hypocrite! First, remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye”...(Matthew 7:5)
It is God that has the power of Judgement; whatever anyone does, it is at the detriment of his or her life.
Don’t be quick to place judgement on anyone.
