The Doctrine of Sin - Session 2
Sin is defined as that tendency to miss the point, to come short of a certain mark. If you miss the mark, you miss your share in the gold. You miss your share in having some of the greatest benefits that God wants you to have.
Sin is Defined as that Tendency to Miss the Point, To Come Short of a Certain Mark.
This in-depth and insightful lesson establishes the concept and theology surrounding sin, in relation to God’s plan and purpose for humanity, and highlights any hindrances that could prohibit access to an intimate relationship with God.Pastor Thamo emphatically substantiates the position that God wants us to represent Him, and sin is not only related to our relationship with God but is also related to our relationship with life. God wants us to share in His eternal plan, He wants us to be shareholders in His provisions. He wants us to not be violating and transgressing and sometimes experiencing this whole sense of not reaching the point of exactness that He wants for our lives.
God Designed us to Function as His Exact Representation
This session unearths and examines the preeminent position that every son has been exalted to, with the inference that every son was born to be an exact representation of God. Pastor Thamo references a multiplicity of examples within God’s incomparable word concerning sin, which lays the foundation for this deep theological perspective, denoting the positional and functional aspects of sin. God’s predestined plan was that every human being be conformed to the image of His son, the firstborn in many brethren, God designed you to carry His image and likeness,to carry God’s fullness. So, if you’re born of God, and if you abide in Christ, you allow the spirit of adoption to come upon you, then you are now operating in a position that is sinless.
God sees me as a son, so my boundary of existence is that I’m a son. That’s the limits of my engagement.If I live within it, I would not sin.
