According to the Bible, and to God (whom I try not to argue with very much), I am a sinner. The fact is that you are a sinner, your best friends are sinners, so is Billy Graham and the Pope. I am, just like every human ever born, except One, I am a carnal lust filled animal, who like the family dog, am physically attracted to my animalistic urges. I like looking at pretty girls, and I am 62 years old. I probably will continue this for a long time. I understand fully well that without the help of God Almighty, I am just an animal in the body of a God-Like human trying to survive on instincts. It is the living God that dwells inside of me that makes me different than an actual 'animal'. I unlike most on this earth today know this fact, and I am grateful for that knowledge.
Sin is the breaking of God's Law. That is the definition given in every Bible ever printed. It reads in 1 John 3:4 "Everyone who commits sin also breaks the law; sin is the breaking of the Law."
Christians believe the Law has been abolished by Christ
When you are a sinner, and we all are, you are like an alcoholic. An alcoholic is a person who is and will always be addicted to drinking alcohol. No one can be cured of this disease unless they admit they have this disease and the same applies to being a sinner. Unless you admit it, and continue to admit it, you are in worse shape than anyone addicted to booze or drugs. In fact, addiction to drugs is far less of a worry than being a sinner for God also gives us the penalty for sinning in the Bible, too. It is, "the wages of sin IS DEATH." (Romans 6:23) Yes, what we "earn" by being a sinner is eternal death. When we die, we will be judged as a sinner and when found guilty, we will be consumed by fire and our existence will be gone forever. That is the word of God and I assuredly believe it! Yes, the wages of sin is death BUT the gift of God IS ETERNAL LIFE. The grace of God DID NOT change God's only definition of sin. Never forget that.
When we admit our sin, God is true to forgive us and like the alcoholic who admits his problem, there is a good life after sin! How are we finally forgiven? It is an act of love, a gift from God Almighty and Jesus Christ, The LORD of the Bible, who came into this world as a carnal man and lived a perfect sin free life and died as a result of sinful people. God then, three days later, raised this Jesus from the dead and BY HIS LIFE, we are all saved - if we want to be! We must want it and we must ask for it IN THE NAME of JESUS CHRIST. It is the only name under heaven, where your forgiveness can be found. Buddha doesn't have it, and Mohammed doesn't have it, either. The Pope doesn't, and neither does modern science.
I often blast the sin of homosexuality, as does the Bible. However, being a queer is not greater of a sinner than being a Sabbath Breaker, or a liar. The part of the homosexual sin is, as the Bible describes it, as one of the few sins that people parade! Most people who are having affairs or are sinning, usually fail to tell the world they are sinning. Most sinners would rather hide their sins, ignore them, and hope that nobody finds out about them. Not the queer, "The look on their faces testifies against them; They parade their sin like Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves." Isaiah 3:9 Queers are a minority of sinners, who like the drunk who fails to admit that they are a drunk, refuses to admit their sin before man and God. That makes it a particularly deadly sin, for if you cannot admit your sins to God- you can't be forgiven!
However, when we admit our sin, no matter what the sin is, we can be forgiven by Jesus Christ and God the Father. We cannot continue to sin over and over again, however, God knows that leaving a life of sin is a lifetime work. We will never be perfect until we are born again from our graves and resurrected to the very glory of Jesus Christ. We will become like He is today! Yes, your Bible says that. It's up to you to find it and read how you can get on the road to recovery. It all starts with these words... "I am a sinner."
