Sin is the issue and has always been the issue throughout the entire history of mankind and even before with Lucifer. This has been shown to be the case with God’s warning to Adam about eating the forbidden fruit in Eden (Gen. 2:17), to the Lord Jesus dying on the cross for our sins (1 Cor. 15:3; etc.), to present time warnings to Christians (Eph. 5:5-7; etc.), to future events (Rev. 21:8; Mt. 13:41,42; etc.)!
False Teachers Deny Sin Is The Issue
Various types of false teachers have been proclaiming that since the redemptive death of the Lord Jesus, sin is not the issue anymore! A glaring heresy of that degree should have caused a serious reaction among professing Christians, but has only seemed to make some more relaxed in their sins! The false understanding of grace being a covering for sin has destroyed the need of holy living for salvation’s sake, which is the message of the New Testament.
Jesus Proved Sin Is Still The Issue
None did a more powerful refutation to that false concept of grace and eternal security imputed righteousness than the Lord Jesus himself when he addressed the seven churches in Asia (Rev. 2 & 3). Folks, that was after his redemptive death at Calvary. He could still see their sins! He was aware of them. So sin was still the issue with him, the judge of the living and the dead (2 Tim. 4:1)!
Please know the prevalent and dangerous grace message in our day needs to be recognized as a demonic deception. Eternal life is especially at jeopardy until people are fully convinced that sin is the issue, even now, since the cross of Christ. Dear reader, take this warning to heart. Don’t be deceived by the lie that sin is not the issue anymore. It is! God’s amazing grace didn’t change that! Remember, under grace, sin is the issue with God, has been the issue and there are many Bible passages which support this (Mark 9:42-48; Gal. 5:19-21; Rev. 22:15; etc.)!
