Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Christian Consequences of Sin The word ?sin? means ?an immoral action which is considered to be a transgression against divine law?. So essentially, if you move against the laws set in the Bible or set out as God's Ten Commandments, you are committing a sin. Whether it be an actual act, or even the thought of an immoral act, it is committing a sin in the eyes of the Lord. So what do Christians consider as the consequences of sin? One of the most infamous consequences, and the one which we are still suffering from now, is alienation from God. Ever since the betrayal of Adam and Eve, have humans suffered on Earth.

The consequences of sin are many, and we have all and shall continue to sin in our lives. Many of us have accepted the Lord as our saviour, yet many people have yet to or refuse to based on their own personal beliefs. No one has the right to judge any side of the argument, but perhaps one day all shall see truth, and find comfort in it. Alistair Barron 6F ...read more.
