Lesson 4: Three Wrong Thoughts About Your Sin, Part 2 (1 John 1:5-10)Related Media
Each day presents new sets of temptations for Christians to process. These temptations will either take root in one’s heart or will whither based upon what is believed about the nature of sin and a person’s participation in it. To combat wrong understandings about sin, the Apostle John presents his readers with some clear teaching about who God is (and is not) and who people are (and are not). Pastor Daniel addresses these truths by explaining the wrong thoughts that Christians can have about their sin. It is of great importance to understand these concepts correctly because, he maintains, “How you view sin reveals if you are truly in fellowship with God.” He argues that the wrong thoughts to be avoided are 1) I can walk in sin and walk with God, 2) I am not a sinner, and 3) I have not sinned.
