Unbelief: The Ultimate Sin

When I go into public high schools as a Christian worker, I am very often asked by the school students whether smoking, swearing, abortion, pre-marital sex, etc, etc, etc, are sins.  The idea of sin seems to be a huge concern for many teenagers.  Various factors, such as increasing levels of freedom and independence, surging hormones, peer pressure and media influences, as well as underdeveloped levels of self-discipline, can mean that teenagers engage in activities that they know to be wrong and unhealthy.

I find it interesting that the concept of sin is still understood, and is very real, for young people in post-modern society.  However I am disappointed by these “sin questions” from high-schoolers because they reveal a very narrow view of sin, and no real comprehension that Jesus has provided the solution for the sin problem.

 When these “sin questions” come up, I try to redirect and refocus the subject – without minimising their concerns – by pointing out that ultimately there is only one sin that really matters.  John made this very clear in his gospel when he quoted Jesus.

The Christian Message


Loving the Word with the MudPreacher



  1. Sin is disobedience to God, and the love of money is idolatry=disobedience to God, and Satan and the love of money are ONE.
    The love of money is wanting to have POWER.

  2. +Stewart Buckley
    Satan simply means 'adversary'.
    Satanism is thinking and acting adversely toward God-the Lord JESUS and His Word, the Bible and fellow human beings and one self.

    ALL people are satanists in this sense, because they are SINNERS=transgressors of God's commandments.

    A condemned Satanist won't burn worse in hell than a ordinary unbeliever who had rejected JESUS.

    A condemned mass murderer won't burn worse in hell than a ordinary unbeliever who had rejected JESUS.

    The WORST sin is UNBELIEF!

  3. +Diannes Designs John 16:8-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.

    9 Of sin, because they believed not in me:
    10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye shall see me no more.
    11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
    +JoyceBelieves InJesusChrist

    When God saved me, He HIMSELF and NO HUMAN, convinced me I NEED His MERCY.
