Be Saved To Sin Safely

October 20, 2012

It is truly disheartening to hear so many preachers, teachers, authors, and bloggers promoting a theology that is contrary to that found in God’s Word. It is truly grievous to see them handing out licenses to “be saved to sin safely”.

Jesus says that everyone who sins is a slave to sin. (John 8:34) He also informs us that we cannot serve two masters. (Luke 16:13) Therefore, can we serve both sin and Christ? No, because to serve Christ, we must serve righteousness (Rom. 6:16) and be free from serving sin. (v. 18,22) We must be making every effort to be spotless before God (2 Peter 3:14), free of all defilement. (1 Peter 1:15,16 & 4:1,2) If anyone rejects this teaching about holiness, he rejects God. (1 Thes. 4:7) To reject God is to commit treason against one’s Maker and join ranks with the evil realm. This is why 1 John 3:8 says, “He who does what is sinful is of the devil” while verse 10 lets us know that those who go on sinning are the devil’s children.

Again: We cannot serve both the devil and Christ. We cannot serve in both the evil realm and in the Kingdom of God. Sin is only of the evil realm. It has zero place in God’s Kingdom of Light, Truth, Love, and Righteousness. Someone may insist that he can serve in both dominions, but his loyalty and obedience to Christ’s Kingdom is then nothing more than a sham. He himself is then nothing more than a hypocrite.

“Just because I sin doesn’t mean that I serve sin,” people often say. But how does this statement hold up to Jesus’ statement in John 8:34, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.” –? How do false Christians squeeze out of the truth of that statement? They do so by teaching that saying a prayer –one that includes a confession of sin and a request to be saved from Hell– overrides all the warnings in God’s Word to quit sinning. They teach that somehow the prayer erases all necessity to heed Scripture’s warnings and commands about eradicating sin from our hearts, minds, and lives.

It is truly sad that these false teachers are leading masses of people to Hell. For the wage of sin is still, and always will be, eternal death. (John 5:29 // Rom. 6:23 // 1 Cor. 6:9,10 // Eph. 5:5,6 // Rev. 20:11-15) Being cleansed of sin is therefore an absolute necessity, and to remain clean and pure is also. In fact, returning to the filth of sin inherits for a person a fate worse than had he never partaken of union with Christ. (1 Cor. 3:16,17 // 2 Peter 2:20-22)

What an agonizing eternity awaits those who promote the horrible and false religion that we can be saved to sin safely.
