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

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

and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Not one single being will escape the judgment of God, for their sins. God did

not spare the angels of heaven that rebelled....God did not spare His own Son

from dieing on the cross...God will not spare us.

4.

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.

5.

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

Him.

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

Life was cast into the lake of fire.

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