Part 7 of 8 – What are the consequences of sin?

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. We have also 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. Sin resides in our hearts.


After learning all this information, we now come to the question of the ages, what are the consequences of sin or of being a sinners? What will ultimately happen to us if we continue in sin without repenting? What happens to us now as we continue to sin? Let’s look at this.
Jeremiah 5:25 (NLTse)
Your wickedness has deprived you of these wonderful blessings.
Your sin has robbed you of all these good things.
Sin prevents us from getting blessings from God. Our blessings are withheld because of sin.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NLTse)
Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 5:5 (NLTse)
You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
Sin prevents us from inheriting the kingdom of God. This means we will not go to heaven but to hell. Sin excludes us from heaven.
Romans 6:21 (NLTse)
And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom.
Sin brings us shame.
Ezekiel 18:4 (NLTse)
For all people are mine to judge—both parents and children alike. And this is my rule:The person who sins is the one who will die.
Genesis 2:17 (NLTse)
except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
Romans 6:23 (NLTse)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
James 1:15 (NLTse)
These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.

All these verses say only one thing, the punishment for sin is eternal death in hell. So, this means that while we are alive and are sinners and are sinning continuously without repenting, our blessings are withheld, we are excluded from heaven and our sins brings us shame. When we eventually die physically, now that we are already dead spiritually when we practice sin, we will be punished by being sent to hell for eternity. Therefore, sin leads to hell.
