Are we Sinners?
Many Christians in today’s churches believe that they are not sinners. They believe that only those individuals that do not belong to a regular Sunday meet for worship church are sinners. They believe that only those that attend these churches are truly saved. And they believe that those individuals that do not attend a regular Sunday worship church are in fact still lost and seeking salvation. This, of course, is certainly not biblical Romans 3:10. Certainly attending a church regularly for worship, spiritual growth, and fellowship can be very advantageous to one’s personal relationship and walk with the LORD. Yet it is not a requirement for salvation, nor does it relieve you of the burden of sin. At the moment of our conception, we inherit the burden of sin, I believe this is the burden Daniel was speaking about in the book of Psalms. Psalms 51:5. We all know, or should know, the story of Adam and Even in the book of Genesis. We know how sin entered this world Romans 5:12, and we know from further reading of our Bible, how sin will ultimately be taken out of this world. 2 Thessalonians 2. While we are still on this planet we will always be surrounded by sin. Believers and non-believers will continue to sin, believers will sin until we are called up to our Lord in the sky.
We are not sinners because we sin, we sin because we are sinners. What then will keep us from being cast into the lake of fire like non-believers if we, in fact, do sin? Well, let’s see what the scriptures say, Ephesians 2:8. Do we want to sin? absolutely not. But we are human, we are fallible, and we deserve the lake of fire. There was only one that ever walked this earth that was sinless from birth to death, and that was our Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST.
