Part 5 of 8 – Are we sinners?

We have learned so far that sin in the eyes of God is a failure to achieve 100% of the standard of holiness set by God. This means a failure to achieve 100% compliance to all his laws. The laws of God includes the Ten Commandments and all other laws that are found in the bible. The bible as the very word of God, contains the standard of holiness required by God, and given through the law, and how to achieve it. We have also learned so far that from the very beginning sin originated from the devil and came to the world through Adam. The devils makes you question or doubt God and God’s commandments and gives an alternative to God’s law, which he knows our weak flesh cannot resist. The devil uses the desires of the mind, the heart and the body to cause us to sin and to trap us in sin. We have also learned that everyone knows the law and through this knowledge, we realized how sinful we are. We realize this because we compare our lives, what we do or don’t do, and what we say or don’t say with what God expects from us through the law, and we realize that we do not match up and therefore are all sinners. Therefore the purpose of the law was to show us how sinful we are and by this the knowledge of sin came to us. We have also learned now that sin reveals sin through the law, arouses our sinful nature through the law and condemns us to eternal death through the law. Therefore the very thing that fuels sin, the very thing that gives sin it’s power, the very thing that sustains sin, is the law.


Now the question is, are we sinners? Do we fall under those that sin? This is a very important question because we need to know if we are sinners because if we are, then we are on our way to hell if we don’t do anything about it. So, are we sinners or is it possible that we are actually not sinners. Let’s look at that.

Psalms 51:5 (NLTse)
For I was born a sinner—
yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.

Job 15:14 (ESVST)
What is man, that he can be pure?
Or he who is born of a woman, that he can be righteous?
Job 25:4 (ESVST)
How then can man be in the right before God?
How can he who is born of woman be pure?
Job here is very clear in indicating that any person born of a woman cannot be pure and cannot be righteous. The only thing that can make a person unrighteousness is sin. So, therefore, any person born of a woman is a sinner. Born into sin, born a sinner. The moment we were conceived, we were already sinners. We all should be aware that to conceive means at the point of becoming pregnant or in other words, the action or that moment when the woman’s egg is fertilized by the male. At that very moment, you were already a sinner. This is a very important verse to note because it also indicates that God considers an unborn child from the point of conception as a sinner and therefore a human being. This verse clearly then shows that abortion from God’s point of view is murder.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 (NLTse)
Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.
1 Kings 8:46 (ESVST)
“If they sin against you— for there is no one who does not sin —and you are angry with them and give them to an enemy, so that they are carried away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near,

Again here we see a confirmation that no living person is without sin. 
1 John 1:8-10 (ESVST)
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Because there is no one who is born of a woman, who is without sin and that all people sin, anyone who tells himself or herself that they don’t sin, or are not sinners, are deceiving themselves and make God a liar. God says in his word that we are all sinners, so if we say that we are not, we make him a liar and we all know that God cannot and does not lie. 
2 Corinthians 5:21 (NLTse)
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

The only person in this world who never sinned whle he was in a human form was Jesus. No one else can claim that.
So, therefore we have seen and learned that we are all sinners and we have been sinners from when we were conceived. We have learned that no one except Jesus, can ever claim that they have not sinned or are not sinners. We have also learned that if we claim to be without sin, we make God a liar.
