New Labels on Old Bottles......SIN IS SIN, NO MATTER WHAT YOU CALL IT!

New Labels on Old Bottles

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us ... If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us." 

                                                                                                  1 John 1:8, 10

Today we've almost done away with the idea of sin. Our culture rejects sin as old-fashioned, so w
e've taken away the word sin and replaced it with new words in our vocabulary.

Some of these high sounding phrases are: error, mistake, misjudgment, weakness, psychological maladjustment, glandular malfunction, and a stumble upward-anything but sin.

We've gone through the medicine cabinet and put new labels on old bottles of poison. So we have new terminology. We've tried to change things by changing the words, but they've not really been
changed at all. We have some egg-headed sophisticates
 who pretend they have-with all of their learnedness and intelligence-somehow made "sin" to be out of date.

We must come back to a place of accountability. People have a sinful nature, and they do wrong because they are wrong. Sin is a reality. Public Enemy Number One is sin. Your greatest 
enemy is sin!
