TAKE HEED: THE POLLUTION OF SIN... THE INSANITY OF SIN...
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
I. SIN COMES IN TWO FORMS:
1. GUILT: REATUS, sinfulness, feeling, wrongdoing... INWARD
2. POLLUTION: MACULA... OUTWARD...
Contaminate, defile, make foul, dirty, filthy, destroy the purity or sanctity...
To fail to comply,treat with disrespect,
Snare, trap, to break moral law, to consciously do wrong, wicked,
II. SIN IS UNIVERSAL:
ALL SIN IS COMING SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD...
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
III. THERE IS GREAT DEBATE OF THE ORIGIN OF SIN...
WE KNOW THE ORIGIN OF SIN ON EARTH...
A. THE ENEMY CATCHS EVE ALONE...
B. THEY TALK AND REASON TOGETHER...
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which
the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not
eat of every tree of the garden?
 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall
not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be
as gods, knowing good and evil.  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that
it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof,
and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
IV. SIN HAD LONG BEEN ESTABLISHED IN ETERNITY BEYOND THE CREATION OF MAN...
THERE WAS AN ANGEL, THE SONG LEADER IN HEAVEN, LUFCIFER...
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to
the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars
of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
V. THE PROBLEM OF THE HEART IS THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM...
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
VI. TAKE HEED THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF SIN:
1. COMMISION: THINGS YOU DO... TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW...
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression
of the law.
Romans 4:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.
Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach
men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach
them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
2. OMMISSION: THINGS YOU DON'T DO...
Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise
and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these
ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Matthew 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not
to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
VII. TAKE HEED: BEING IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME, WITH THE WRONG
PEOPLE... TAKE HEED--- SIN WILL COME TO THE CAMP...
2 Samuel 11:1 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to
battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the
children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.
1. David's sin cost more than he planned on paying...
2. David's sin took him farther than he planned on going...
3. David's sin kept him longer than he planned on staying...
2 Samuel 12:7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I
anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
 And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the
house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee
such and such things.
 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in his sight? thou hast
killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him
with the sword of the children of Ammon.
 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me,
and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.
 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will
take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives
in the sight of this sun.  For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and
before the sun.
 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said unto David,
The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
VIII. THERE CAN BE FOUND 3 PARTS OF SIN...
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride
of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1. THE LUST OF THE FLESH...
2. THE LUST OF THE EYES... GREED, ENVY, SELFIISHNESS
3. THE PRIDE OF LIFE.
IX. SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF SIN...
A. SIN IS A TYPE OF UNBELIEF...
John 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
B. THERE ARE MANY SINS OF THE FLESH...
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and
these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.  Now the works of the flesh
are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God.
 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
C. HATRED AND PREJUDUCIE IS A SIN...
Proverbs 14:21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor,
happy is he.
D. NOT READY, NOT PREPARED... WILLING, INCLINED, ALERT, VIGILANCE
THE SIN OF THE 5 FOOLISH VIRGINS, THEY WERE PURE... NOT READY...
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did
according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
E. DOUBT IS A TYPE OF SIN
Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for
whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
F. THERE IS A SIN AGAINST YOUR BROTHER...
1 Cor. 8:12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin
G. THERE IS A SIN OF PLAYING WITH THE THE PERSONALITIES OF PEOPLE...
James 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
H. SIN IS MORE THAN JUST DOING WRONG... SIN IS TO KNOW TO DO RIGHT AND NOT DO IT...
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
TO BREAK THE LAW OR 10 COMMANDMENTS IS A SIN.
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
I. ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IS A SIN...
1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
X. NEBUCHADNEZZAR--- THE INSANITY OF SIN... HEED THE WARNING...
DAN. 4:  While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar,
to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.  And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling
shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee,
until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as
oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like
birds' claws.  And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine
understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever,
whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of
heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
XI. TAKE HEED: TOLERANCE, SIN IS NEVER SATISFIED... MORE, MORE; DEEPER...
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are
contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
XII. ALL MAN KIND HAS THE DISPOSITION TO SIN... SIN IS HABITUAL...
Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God,
as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of
doctrine which was delivered you.
XIII. SIN TAKES THREE FORMS...
1. PRESUMPTOUS SIN...
Psalm 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me:
then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
2. SECRET SIN...
Psalm 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
3. SIN OF THE HOLY GHOST
Matthew 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men:
but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever
speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world
