Freedom From the Power Of Sin
Power of sin is deep inside the men.
We don’t even understand or accept that sin is in us.
If sin is in us, we will behave according to its nature.
Following are some of the different natures of the sin.
Presence of at least one of this nature in a you means you are under the power of sin.
- Sexual Immorality : Adultery,prostitution,sex between unmarried,homosexual,extramarital sex, pornography
- Hatred : means hating others even our enemy
- jealousy : is emotion that someone you have will be taken away by someone else
- envy : is the emotion that having something that someone else have
- discord : disagreement or fight
- fits of rage : uncontrolled anger, violent action
- selfish ambition :
- factions: who creates groups, dissensions and provoke others
- orgies : wild party or rave party excessive drinking and indiscriminate sexual activity
- idolatry : Anything ,money or status or position we give more importance than God,
These above sinful natures doesn’t belong to the God.
If it doesn’t belong to God then it belongs to the devil.
If it belongs to the devil then the person is under the control of devil.
