THE CONSEQUENCES

OF SIN

Part I

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 not, IT

STILL IS A REALITY.

MENTAL CONSEQUENCES

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.

2.

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!

PHYSICAL CONSEQUENCES

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). 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.

ALL SIN WILL PRODUCE BAD

PHYSICAL CONSEQUENCES

3.

SPIRITUAL CONSEQUENCES

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.

SOME PASSAGES DEALING WITH

THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN

Sexual sins and immorality will produce diseases and guilt. God’s word

says that we are actually sinning against our own bodies.

I Cor. 6:18 - 18Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man

does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual

immorality sins against his own body.

James 4:8 - 8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts,

you double-minded.

Rev. 21:8 - 8“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable,

murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all

liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire
