The Doctrine of Sin - Session 4
The word “sin” means to wander away from the purpose.
The Original Intent of God was that we Stay within the Boundary of Carrying His Image and Likeness
This captivating teaching will stimulate your thoughts and provide perspective and insight into how God designed us. The original intent of God is that man will carry His image, male and female will carry His image and they will function as a single unit. Pastor Thamo explicitly advocates that the image, is the blueprint, the boundary, the definition of how we should live. He references many scriptures that evidence that much of our rulership today is because of the absence of our original design. As such, creation suffers because of the absence of the presence, the person, the image, the likeness of God in us. Therefore, the original intent of God was that we stay within the boundary of carrying His image and likeness.

Living by the Creation Design is Important
This lesson clarifies that as sons of God, you are defined and epitomised by the image and likeness of God. Pastor Thamo refers to the Genesis 1:26 mandate and alludes to various covenants that consistently exposes us to the mind of God. In relation to Noah and the flood, this teaching reveals that God is intent on wanting to preserve His image and likeness, and the flood is a great picture of how God’s judgment comes to the earth, as a result of not existing according to His plan. This session unequivocally establishes that if you choose to live by God’s design which has been attested, validated, and authenticated by the eternal will of God, that no court in the heavens can reject, you cannot sin. Righteousness is the pattern for how you live in compliance to God’s design and within boundaries. As such, Jesus is the primal and fundamental example if you want to know God’s pattern for not wandering, not drifting, or being disconnected, and not following your own opinions, a perfect case study, to pattern and conform our lives to.
While God is a God of tremendous love, you must understand that He is also a God of purpose and He is not going to use things that choose to do something, especially people, which is in contradiction as to why He designed them, He created them. So, living by the creation design is important.
