Only Three Sins… Only 3 ?

What if I told you that I believe that there are Only Three Sins? Will You Bite?

Apple If you go to Google and search “Sin List” you will find a web page with the Heading… Sin List – Sin List

“Click” on it and a list of sins numbered from 1 to 667 pops up, each one followed with a scripture reference. The “A’s” were tough starting with [1] Abortion and including things like [5] Adultery and [15] Astrology.

I Printed the list… its 14 pages long. I think it covers everything i have ever done wrong.667 vs 3

Still, I believe that there are ONLY 3.. You say “What about the “10” Commandments?” and again I say THREE… Only 3 Sins …and everything else is simply Fruit.

There is a Sin that leads to Death… “The Ultimate Sin” …Denying the very Existence and Power of God.  It makes perfect sense to me.  Your born and choose in your infinite wisdom to ignore the existence of God and you live to be old and you die.

HELL, Though there is written testimony and evidence that there may be additional consequences… why should you care, you don’t believe in God anyway.

AppleSin Number ONE: The Sin of unbelief… Saying that no God exists and therefore without God’s existence… there is certainly NO Holy Power of God anywhere in the universe..

And if there is no power to save you when death comes… you will surely Die!

Jesus said… “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.  And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” [Matthew 12:31-32]

Death pathway

But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit (the Power of God) will not be forgiven,

This is the unbelievers only sin… for if you are already separated from God, can another sin  possibly separate you further?  Plus Dead is Dead.

The next two sins are reserved for believers!

AppleSin Number Two: Knowing God, yet not loving Him as the Lord your God of your life and not loving Him with all your Heart, with all your Soul, with all of your Mind and with all of your Strength.

I trip and stumble over this more than I know… choosing my way over His way.

Jesus said this: “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.  This is the great and first commandment.” Matthew 22:37 Mark 12:30


Sin Number Three: Not loving your neighbor as much as you love yourself… choosing to love me, myself and I more than all the rest of you.

everyday I choose myself over the needs and desires of others, don’t you? 

Dropped MoneySomeone cuts me off in traffic… do I honk and offer a hand gesture in anger or do I pray for their safety?

When I see someone drop a $1.00 bill or a $20.00, does the size of the bill influence my decision to catch up with them and return their loss?

It is so easy to choose me first and let my neighbors fend for themselves.

Jesus said: “And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Matthew 22:39 Mark 12:31

I actually like the way this is recorded in Luke’s Gospel when a Lawyer stands up to put Jesus to the test saying: “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 

and Jesus answered his question with a question: “What does the Law say and how do you read it?”  …The Lawyer answered: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And Jesus said to the Lawyer, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”

IS A SIN IN THE BIBLE THEREFORE NO LONGER A SIN?  NO OF COURSE NOT!   There are still over 600 individual definable sins that we as humans commit every day,  The most common one is denying that GOD even exists, or writing Him off as being Mother Nature, or The Powers That Be, or A Statue or Carved Image… However, for the remaining 666 sins on the printed Sins List… Careful examination will resolve them down to either not Loving God with all of our Heart, or not loving our Neighbor as much as we love ourselves… OR BOTH… think about it..!

And If you still find yourself standing on the wrong side of the Unbelievers line, your the-linenot alone, there are millions of people still standing there with you… The good news… there is still time to change your mind.

In Acts 2:37-38 we find a group of men who come to realize they are still standing on the Death side of this line… so they cry out  saying “What shall we do?”

This is my advice to you: Let God reach out and touch your Heart.  And as Peter said to those lost men… Repent… [change your mind about who you say Jesus is] and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit [the power of God in your life]

If you will do this, then you are set free from Sin Number One and God can begin to work on Sins Number Two and Three.  Believe Me it is worth every minute!apple-love

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People..?

I Believe God rewards those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 I

I Believe We are Set Apart for the Gospel, That We are Called to Belong to Jesus Christ,  And that We are Mutually Encouraged by Each Others Faith…

I Believe Unrighteous People Suppress the Truth, By Exchanging the True Glory of God’s Image, For Images of Things Created by God… Romans 1

I Believe God Has a Plan…

Yet… Believers and Non-Believers alike find themselves asking these questions:

What is it… Evolution or Creation..? Creationism vs. Evolution

Evolution Says… we all started this journey as Bacteria, that evolved into a Fungus, and so on and so forth, until we arrive at Mankind.

Evolution Screams… Survival of the What?  Survival of the Fittest……………..!

So… the Strongest Fish leap from the Rivers Depths to Swallow the Fly and Survive… Unless that Fly is Tied onto the end of a Line on My Fly Pole… Then I Survive..? Fly-Fishing 1FlyFishing 2Fly Fishing Bear




Without a Survival of the Fittest Philosophy… We have No Excuse for our Greed and No way to Justify Ourselves being separated from God.  So we carry on… Surviving Life rather than Living Life.  And we ask Questions of God Like…

Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People? and

Why are there So Many People Going Hungry in the World?

And Yet, All of Us have Chosen Ourselves Over Someone Else in this Battle to Survive

All of us EXCEPT the One… the Only One Who Did Not Pursue Survival… God’s Only Son… Jesus… who came to Die so that We might have Life.  And this Son says… “Come and Follow Me”

So in turn… God the Father comes back to us asking:  “So have I not supplied for you all…The Heavens and The Earth… and The Light of Day… and Water and Dry Land… and Grass and Herb and Seed and Fruit Trees… and The Sun, Moon and Stars and the Seasons of the Year… and all the Creatures in the Sea… and all the Birds in the Sky… and all the Beasts on the Earth… and Did I not give you Dominion over all of this and say…”to you it shall be for Food”?  And if this is so… He asks us all…

Why Do You Allow So Many Bad Things to Happen to Good People… and,

Why are there So Many People Going Hungry in the World today?

and we like SHEEP say “bah bah bah”  Because If I don’t Believe in GOD… I’m just a Survivor… and then it is not my fault!


Prescriptions for Faith…

Romans 15:1 If you consider yourself to be Strong in the ways of the Lord…then you owe it to those you consider weaker…to bear with their infirmities…to hold them up and even carry them through errors that arise from the weakness of their mind. In their weakness, they are still partially disabled and still confessing “its unable to be done… it’s impossible”, not yet fully knowing that all things are possible to those who believe!

A weaker neighbor is a neighbor in need of Faith…and we all know that faith comes by hearing and hearing from the word of God…so, when we see a brother in need of faith…Prescribe a dosage of God’s word as medicine…Find a promise from God and give it to your neighbor as encouragement.  Write it down for them and recommend that they speak it orally “out loud” three times or more a day until faith comes.  Faith will come and it will change their life…

And if you find yourself to be the weak one…then find someone to prescribe one of God’s promises to you, write it down and speak it  three or more times a day until faith comes…and

it will change your life!

All Things Are Possible

Are All Things Really Possible?  “We have the ability within us to do that which is impossible, or at least that which is thought to be impossible.  Our own being has the potential to make seemingly impossible things happen.  What was once impossible…has now become possible!     It never was impossible, only impossible for that day or time.  Men through out time have dreamed or visualized things thought to be impossible.  An inventor is someone brave or foolish enough to turn the impossible into the possible, to turn a dream into a reality.”  [Steven 10-28-1982]

“Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”   Hebrews 11:1

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”   Matthew 19:26

Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”  Mark 9: 23-24
