Is Sin a sin when not recogised ?
« on: January 19, 2014, 01:48:25 AM »
paralleled alongside  The Road to Emmaus ? - Article

Many things I carried with me into the Kingdom

Many things were revealed to me as I drew nearer to God

I found the nearer I got the more sin was revealed , things I never knew were there

So is sin still a sin even though its not yet revealed ?

Probably seen as a silly question

but I had many things I never saw until The Lord revealed it to me

If you are ignorant of a law and are caught breaking that law, can you be tried in a court of law?

Try explaining to a traffic cop you didn't know we drove on the left and that you are driving on the right. Would you be allowed to drive?

God makes an allowance for ignorance of his law, if we turn to him, but those who reject him he makes no allowance for.

"And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering.

And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.

Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him." Numbers 15:27-31

Has God changed? If sins of ignorance were offensive to God then, why would they not be today?

So if a person has'nt yet had that sin revealed it may be apparent to others

Or it may well be a hidden sin known or not known by that individual until a later date /

and if that sin is not dealt with it might well lead to temptation of a kind in the future

But either way, the Lord will show that person and convict them, thus rather thatn the sin locking them up] they can be released from it

And either way it is for the Lord to show them

the greatest harm can be done by individuals taking it upon themselves not in the light of the "fruit" or using the "fruit" to remind a person of their failings

When quite often the greater sin can be hidden sin - not yet revealed

so causing a plank in the eye of the "friend of Job"

Hidden sin is often the worst sin -  not known of until dealt with or revealed

Or worse still leading into a temptation  before coming to light

Although unknown it is definitely something that needs to be fixed and God knows it so much better we do. This one reason why it is so necessary to always trust Him. If we are trusting Him, will He fail in anything that really makes a difference in the end of the matter? I think not.

If people do care enough to trust Him they likely will never know our failing and wages of sin remains, death.

Amen! No sitting back on your laurels here!

It not be a "sin unto death" but if left alone that will be the end result.

How can a sin not be recognised as sin?

We don't wait for our concence to tell us something is wrong, anymore than we wait for a policeman to tell us we've broken the law.
While we have to trust God we also have to be active in finding out about God, attending a church where the bible is sstematicly exponded, reading the bible, praying about what we read.
Ignorance of the law whether earthly law or heavely law is not an excuse for breaking the law.

what do you see as the Law ?

what is a heavenly law ?

a spiritual law can be broken at any time


whenever I put something before God can break a spiritual law
