Sermon 19: License to Sin
By Bro. Steven R.
“ She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”-John 8:11
Protestant founder Martin Luther is quoted as saying that Jesus died for nothing if we don’t sin! In a sense he is correct. Jesus would not have to have died if sin didn’t exist, but sin came into being in Genesis 3 when Adam and Eve ate of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil! Therefore, we all sin, because we have a sin nature! However, we must TURN OR BURN!!!!!!!
It becomes necessary to turn from sin in your life! You can’t be saved without a sincere heart! It’s true we can’t save ourselves with our good works, because the Bible says that our righteousness is as RAGS! We can NEVER EVEN HOPE to come close to the sinless perfection that Jesus Christ did when He was on the Earth! He never had a sexual thought, never succumbed to temptation of the devil, never even did as much as steal anything! He never would’ve even stolen a ketchup packet from Burger King because He was not a sinner! We are! We have all sinned!
Even if we are all sinners and can’t get to Heaven on our own accord, Luther is still wrong! Being saved is NOT a license to sin! We shouldn’t get High on the devil’s lettuce, go to a strip club, place thousands of dollars on the breasts of harlots, drive a gin and tonic, and then go to Taco Bell to gorge on burritos and then go to a hotel room to fornicate! Christians MUST stay away from the sinful excesses of the world! Even if truly saved people can’t go to Hell due to the sacrifice of Christ, we cannot mock Christ by living as the world! The Bible says to congregate with other believers and to be in the world but not of the world! Set yourself apart from the world! If you’re not doing that, are you having a quality walk with Christ?! Doesn’t sound like it! If you’re not even saved, pray that Christ will save you from your sins and repentance will be what you need to do to show you’re truly a new creature in Christ! Don’t listen to former papist turned fecal fetishist Martin Luther! Listen to the KJV Bible and then a good local IFB preacher!
