Born A Sinner

Born A Sinner

Psalm 51:5 (KJB)   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

David was heartbroken in this verse.  Not because somebody had done something to him, but because of what he chose to do to himself.  It is quite an eye opening picture a man can get when he realizes his natural standing before the holiness and righteousness of God.

A man cannot truly look to God without seeing a sincere picture of ...

You’re Not as Good as You Thought

Romans 3:23 (KJB)   For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

So, you think you are a good and moral person?  Exactly what do you base that assessment upon?

Sadly, many people would agree with this description and apply it to their own life.

But, there is a problem.  No man, woman, or child is ever considered a good and moral man in God’s estimation.  His is the only opinion that ...

History Admonishes Arrogance

1 Corinthians 10:11-12 (KJB)   Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.  12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Learn from History, learn from your prideful mistakes of the past, and learn from the glaring sinful errors others commit.  Every moment of history is for our learning and admonition.  The key is to visit ...

Bondage Brings Freedom

Bondage Brings Freedom

Ezra 9:8-9 (KJB)   And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.  9 For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of ...

Every Man Faces Temptation

August 21st, 2017

Every Man Faces Temptation

James 1:14-15 (KJB)   But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.  15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

A person cannot be alive in this world and not be faced with temptation.

Even Jesus Christ faced temptation when He was alive on this earth.

Having the potential for choosing to sin does not mean a person allows himself ...

God’s Perfect and Permissive Will

Genesis 1:28 (KJB)   And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God desires to bless and spiritually blossom each person through procreation.  Having offspring serves to multiply man’s presence in this world through natural reproduction.  According to ...

A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth

A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth

Job 14:1 (KJB)   Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

All mankind is naturally born a sinner.

Sinning comes naturally for every man.

Being moral, godly, and righteous is not included in the innate character of any man, but being immoral, evil, and wicked is certainly prominent and prolific in his natural life.

A man is not born an alcoholic.

A man is not born ...

Born Sinful

August 8th, 2017

Born Sinful

Psalm 51:5 (KJB)   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

All mankind is born with an innate sinful nature at work in his hardened heart and his flesh.

There are two divisions or “spiritual flavors” of sin.  Sins of commission and omission.

The flesh carries a strong pull or desire for craving an almost endless variety, or flavor of sin.  To desire a sin is a strong hunger, but unless a person acts ...

Because They Love Sin

August 4th, 2017

Because They Love Sin

Romans 1:26-27 (KJB)   For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

God gave them up to their vile affections ...

Washed with Dirty Water

Washed with Dirty Water

Matthew 27:24-25 (KJB)   When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.  25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Pilate tried to wash his own hands with dirty spiritual water.  His attempt to wash away ...
