Why Does Sin Seem so Right?

Dear God letter

Research on sin and the Devil

Barna numbers: 2005

60% of adults say Satan is not a living being

46% of born again believers deny Satan’s existence

73% of Catholics say the Devil doesn’t exist

See the problem

Sin is a Part of Who We Are!

Spiritually speaking there are 2 types of people

Old Self

“Flesh” in the Bible or “sinful nature”

Romans 8:3

Sinful nature v. Original sin

Prone to sin

Everyone has this

Everyone before they become Christians

Most of the world is living here

And they don’t even know it

New Self

This is after you become a Christian

Romans 8:1

Refers back to 6:4-7

Baptism

So why do we continue to sin?

We are in a battle Eph. 6:12

We have forgotten about it

Paul says in Romans 7 that it is constant

A constant battle with the flesh

Satan Makes Sin Look so Good!

How do you picture Satan?

Do you believe he is real?

Like this? (play video)

Actually he is disguised as an angel of light

2 Cor. 11:14

This means he makes things tempting

God doesn’t tempt us, Satan does

Satan packages things real nice

Lust as Love

Gossip as Prayer Requests

Self-centeredness as Self-esteem

All sin seems so right because Satan makes it look so good

So what?

Your sin separates you from God

God, through your sin, provided a way back to Him

Jesus Christ
