Claiming those Promises
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”— 1 John 3:4.
The Bible definition of sin is breaking the God’s law. So the error that is floating around, that God has no law, is totally untrue. If there is no law, there is no sin!
“Where no law is, there is no transgression.”— Romans 4:15.
As with God’s government, so it is with nations: Any nation, that is daring enough to get rid of its laws, will have no lawbreakers! Without laws, there are no crimes. Everyone can commit any atrocity, with no fear of police, courts, or prison.
Just as civil governments must have laws, so God has moral laws also. God’s moral law is writ- ten in Exodus 20:3-20. It is the Ten Command- ments.
Preachers sometimes say that the law “has been done away with.” But, when I ask them, “Which of the Ten Commandments would you like to be abol- ished?” they are silent. Every one of the Ten Com- mandments is vitally important. Human morality is based on them. But only in Christ’s strength can we obey them. Only with the help of Christ can we overcome.
In this book, we will discove , step by step, how to resist temptation and overcome cher- ished sin. But first, we need a better under- standing of the origin of evil. How did sin ever get started?
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”
