Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 68 Do Christians sin?


Do Christians sin? Some say yes, all the time since we are not perfect in this life. Some say no, because after we have experienced sanctification we cannot sin. What is the truth? Can we know the truth? Surely this is a very important area because Christ died that we may be delivered from sin. If that means that we can be delivered from sin in this life and yet we do not experience this deliverance, what shall we say to God when we stand before Him on the final judgment day? The scriptures speak much about this so I don’t think we have any excuse not to know God’s mind. Let us ask God for clarity regarding what He has done for us in Christ Jesus that we may experience all that God has provided and please Him in all things.


• Sin in the life of unbeliever:
o Sin reigns in death (Rom. 5:21)
o A controlling disposition (Rom. 7:18-20)
o Cannot please God (Rom 8:8)
o All “righteousness” is rejected as self-effort (Isiah 64:6)
• Sin in the life of the disciple
o Not the “norm” if we are abiding n Christ (I John 3:4-9)
o Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death (Rom. 8:1-2)
o If we continue to sin we do not know Him (not in Christ)
o If we do sin (stumble) we have an advocate if we confess our sin and repent (I John 2:1-2)
o The Holy spirit is faithful to convict of sin (John 16:8-11)
• What is sin?
o Sin is lawlessness (I John 3:4)
o Sin is unrighteousness (touching the unclean thing) (I John 5:17)
o Knowing to do good but not doing it (James 4:17)
o Refusing to walk in light that has come (John 15:22)
o Unbelief (John 16:9)
o Whatever is not of faith (Rom. 14:23)
• The consequences of un-repented sin
o Coldness in our relationship with God (2 Cor. 6:14-7:1)
o Coldness in our relationship with other disciples (I John 1:5-7)
o Blindness (John 9:39-41)
