Lesson 3: Three Wrong Thoughts About Your Sin, Part 1 (1 John 1:5-10)

Related Media

How dangerous is sin, really? It is easy to judge actions in life according to how tragic or immediate the consequences are. In other words, a person might view sin as not that big of a deal if he isn’t struck with a serious illness or experiences great loss immediately afterward. But the Bible speaks of sin in a far different way, a way that needs to be understood if one is going to follow Christ wholeheartedly, walking in communion with God. In his first of two sermons covering this particular text, Pastor Daniel puts forward the “truth test,” stating, “How you view sin reveals if you are truly in fellowship with God.” Laying the foundation for the wrong thoughts people can have about their sin, he picks up on John’s message about God being light, the One who is completely good.
