The Pathology of Sin: Its Culmination

But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death” (James 1:14-15).

When it comes to the conception and maturation of sin, every child of God ought to be a militant pro-abortionist.

Allowing temptation to germinate and gestate in your heart always results in a live birth called sin. Without exception this newborn matures into the merciless monster named death.

According to Romans 6:23 and Revelation 21:8, the wages of sin is death (i.e., separation from God in this life) and the second death (i.e., eternal separation from God in hell’s unquenchable fire). This horrific cancer called sin has nothing more to offer you than a few passing pleasures (Hebrews 11:25). What measly bait Satan puts on such a huge and deadly hook!

From start to finish, the pathology of sin reveals a gruesome path of danger, degeneracy, and death. Clearly, God and temptation have nothing in common.
