Sin is rebellion towards God. It comes in several forms:

disobedience, accusation, ignoring God. Sin has many

consequences. So often when people sin, they do not realize

how that sin impacts on them and on God. This paper is an

attempt to show, in detail, all of the effects of our sins.

** Firstly, sin has a most undesirable and even catastrophic

effect upon the sinner. Sometimes the person who is sinning

can feel the impact of his/her sin; sometimes this impact is not

felt. Understand this, however, whether this impact is felt or



1. When we sin, we affect our conscience. This is what

is commonly known as guilt. We create feelings of

guilt. This can range anywhere from mild to

overwhelming. People have actually killed themselves

because they could not stand the guilt

that they felt for the wrongs that they have done.

a. This is not why God placed a conscience in each

one of us. He placed it there so that we could

and would recognize our problem and be driven to

do something constructive in dealing with that

problem. Without the remedy for Sin that God

has given us, however, this guilt can, and does, pile

up and overwhelm us. This guilt can produce all

kinds of side effects such as worry, fear, sadness,

a sense of loss, a sense of not being in control

of our own lives, despair, rejection, and much more.

** One of the consequences of sin, is GUILT!


1. Sin will produce consequences. We are dealing with

physical consequences, here. Sin produces all

manner of diseases. Sexual sins produce sexually

transmitted diseases such as herpes, aids, hepatitis,

genital warts, and a long extended list. Other sins

cause the perpetrator to spend time in prison and/or jail.

Some sins can cause brain damage (alcohol abuse).

a. Sins can bring about some immediate physical

punishment....NOW! Smoking causes cancer.

Smokeless tobacco causes cancer of the mouth,

tongue, and throat. Some crimes can get you

killed or put in the hospital.




1. Certainly sin has spiritual consequences which affect the

person who is committing the sin(s). Sin will separate us

from our God. It deprives us from the eternal reward

that God has purchased for us.

** sin will bring spiritual death to any and all who refuse to change,

repent, and submit themselves in obedience to God and seek out the

remedy that God has given us.

1. Nobody will escape....God know how to punish the wicked,

and he knows how to reward the righteous.

a. II Peter 2:4-9 tells us that there are no exceptions to

this law of God.

II Peter 2:4-9 - 4For if God did not spare the angels who

sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into

chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5and did

not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight

people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood

on the world of the ungodly; 6and turning the cities of

Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to

destruction, making them an example to those who

afterward would live ungodly; 7and delivered righteous

Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked

8(for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented

his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing

their lawless deeds) 9then the Lord knows how to deliver

the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under

punishment for the day of judgment.

Heb. 2:2-3 - 2For if the word spoken through angels proved

steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience

received a just reward, 3how shall we escape if we neglect

so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken

by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard


Rev. 20:15 - 15And anyone not found written in the Book of

Life was cast into the lake of fire.

D. Through one man sin was brought about...through the blood of one

man (Christ, Jesus), we have been justified and set free from the

bondage of sin.

Rom. 5:12 - 12Therefore, just as through one man sin

entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death

spread to all men, because all sinned.

I Peter 3:21 - 21There is also an antitype which now saves

us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but

the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the

resurrection of Jesus Christ,

E. Suffice it to say, YOUR SINS WILL AFFECT YOU IN

TERRIBLE WAYS! You will be affected physically...and more will be eternally condemned to a tormenting

place...a place that is designed for the devil and the fallen angels
