It is commonly believed that everyone is sinful and commits sins. Many reasons
are given for such. This statement is true if limited to those who have not
received the salvation that Christ made possible. The good news of the gospel
will tell us that we can be delivered, not only from the penalty of sin, but
also from the power and nature of sin. Listed below are ten of the many reasons
given that "everyone" commits sin. Also stated is why they don't apply
to people who possess salvation.
1. Everyone sins because man "just has to sin".
This is the reason Jesus came: "For he shall save his people from their
sins." (Matthew 1:21). Two times Jesus told people to "go and
sin no more" (John 5:14 and John 8:11). He would not have said such
if man "just had to sin".
2. Everyone sins because the Bible says so.
Yes, the Bible says so. In stating such, it teaches us that no one is good
in his own power and resources. When Christ came, He told us in regards to committing
sin; "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
3. Everyone sins because of the power of the devil.
Some people have said, "The devil made me do it". Jesus can give
you power over the devil. "He that is begotten of God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one toucheth him not." (I John 5:18b)
4. Everyone sins because man is weak.
Salvation imparts strength to man that counteracts his weaknesses "I can
do all things through Christ which strengthenth me." (Phillipians 4:13).
5. Everyone sins because of the flesh.
Through the resources of Christ's blood and resurrection we are delivered from
giving in to the flesh to the point of sin. Referring to saved people, Romans
8:1 says, "They walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit". Also
Romans 8:9 says, "They are not in the flesh but in the Spirit".
6. Everyone sins because of the body.
God made the body and he called it good. Jesus had a body like ours and did
not sin. Bible salvation can enable us to bring our bodies in subjection to
God's will (I Corinthians 9:27).
7. Everyone sins because of temptation.
Saved people are tempted, but I Corinthians 10:13 tells us we won't
be tempted above what we are able to bear. Temptation in itself doesn't make
8. Everyone sins because the world is sinful.
The world is sinful! Saved people are not of the world and by the sanctifying
power of Christ are kept from the evil therein (I John 17:15-17).
9. Everyone sins because my preacher says they do.
We will allow your preacher his own personal belief. We must accept the testimony
of the Word of God; "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin."
(I John 3:9).
10. Everyone sins because I know I sin.
II Corinthians 10:12 says, "It is not wise to compare ourselves
among ourselves". We are sorry that you have not experienced the deliverance
from sin that is possible in Christ. There are those who have heard the good
news pertaining to such and have been delivered.
