In the next few posts we will be exploring the Biblical doctrine of sin. I have outlined this in three points,
Sin's Outworking, and
The advantage to this outline is that it is easy to remember by the acrostic 'sososo'.
The outline really speaks for itself, doesn't it? Sin has its origin with Satan, who deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It works itself out through our actions since by Adam's fall we are inherently sinful. And it's outcome is death, just as promised way back at the beginning of time.
There are four reasons I want to write about sin;
1) We need to see how 'exceedingly sinful sin is'.
2) We need to see God's Holiness as opposed to our sin.
3) We need to see our only hope in the sovereign grace of God, Who sent His Son to take the penalty of our sins in His own body.
4) We need to see the awesomeness of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ clearly displayed in His death and resurrection.
