Those who are wicked hate rules, and lists of rules, and every dirty person hates those who make a distinction and separation of what is filthy from that which is clean and holy. If you are against lists of “dos and don’ts” then you are a pagan and have nothing to do with Biblical Christianity, and need to repent and love the real Jesus and believe in the goodness of God which you have despised.

    To those who eagerly desire to know the terms of following Jesus, they will clasp onto every truth with their life even when these very precious rays of light seem to cut their own hearts.  To those who would rather die for Jesus than to live for this world, they will take in this light and life of truth. Though it kills them in exposing their sin, yet they will hold on to it in faith until it makes them alive and causes them to raise up, themselves now, even saturated in truth.


The Main Sin Lists

These are very specific sin lists by which you can know for sure that you are going to hell if you are found practicing them


Read Rom_1:15-17


1Co_6:9-10 Jos.Trans. or don't you all *know by perception [* οἴδατε – fig. (haven’t you) perceived, known, and understood] that unrighteous ones will not *inherit [any] portion [by] appointment [of] law [* κληρονομήσουσιG2816 = κλῆροςG2819 (lot/ portion) + νόμοςG3551 (law / appointment by law) = fig. (by application) inherit (anything)] of God’s kingdom A? Do not be tricked [πλανᾶσθε – or deceived]: neither [οὔτε = οὔ + τε – lit. not + also/ including/ and/ both] *males involved in prostitution [* πόρνοι – i.e. men that fornicate (as a prostitute themselves or with females of this character)], neither idolaters, neither adulterers [μοιχοὶ], neither soft males [μαλακοὶG3120 – masculine (but) soft; i.e. effeminate, passive recipients of homosexual activity], neither *males who get in bed with men [* ἀρσενοκοῖταιG733 – ἀρσεν = a man; κοῖται = a bed; (when combined (σενο) it becomes a noun as described); i.e. homosexuals, and, when paired with “soft males” (μαλακοὶ), this word communicates active givers of homosexual activity],  10  neither thieves, neither *those who reach to have above their own things [* πλεονέκται – fig. subtle thieves; swindlers; cheaters; covetous; those who seek strategic ways to take other people’s things], neither drunkards [μέθυσοι – those who desecrate their bodies with intoxicants beyond the threshold of sobriety (i.e. beyond what can be processed and metabolized by the liver)], neither *malicious criticizers [* λοίδοροιG3060 – or revilers/ abusive insulters], neither *forceful takers [* ἅρπαγεςG727 – those who manipulatively exalt their own soul/ will/ agenda/ opinions over others in a controlling way to take resources for themselves; i.e. “macho self-confident, self-willed, ravenous extortioners; fig. bullies; pushy salesmen; (etc.); note: ἅρπ- (arp-) is where we eventually get “rapture” and “rape” from], will *inherit [any] portion [by] appointment [of] law [* κληρονομήσουσι] of God’s kingdom.
[(A) Alt. will not inherit any portion of God’s kingdom by appointment of law;
(B) Also see the list at 1Co


1Ti_1:8-11 KJB  But we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully; 9  Knowing this: that the law is not laid down for a righteous person but for the lawless and unsubmitted*, G506 for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers* G3964 and murderers of mothers* G3389; for murderers of men;** 10  For fornicators, homosexuals,G733 for slave traders,G405 for liars, for oath breakers, and if there is anything else that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11  According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.


* "unsubmitted...fathers...mothers..." see:

 Exo_21:15; Lev_20:9; Deu_27:16; Pro_20:20; Pro_28:24, Pro_30:11, Pro_30:17

** Being considered "murderers," before God is not limited to a physical act:

Mat_5:21-22; 1Jn_3:15


Gal_5:19-21 CAB Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are: adultery, fornication, immorality, lewdness,  20  idolatry, sorcery*, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions,  21  envies, murders, drinking bouts, revelries, and the like; which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.


* sorcery here is “φαρμακεία” (pharmakeía) in Greek (Strong’s G5331), and it is where pagans used drugs to lower their mental defenses and put them in a more trance-like state to connect with the spiritual realm. This obviously resulted in them being very demonized because they used a filthy and natural way of connecting to dirty spirits, which are ever quick to molest those who depart from their own rational mind by the lustful indulgence of the corruptible elements of this world.

    We do the same sorts of things today whenever we use drugs to alter our mind instead of facing our spiritual problems by faith. We are no different than the pagan witch doctors when we proscribe medicine (or “pharmaceuticals,” as in “pharmacy” and even, “pharmakeía”) for “mental” or “psychological” problems.

    This same word is used to describe a sin that will be practiced in the end times when God brings wrath upon the earth: Rev_9:20-21; Rev_18:23


The only case to use medicine is when there are real physiological, (not psychological) problems that need healing. The examples for this are abundant in the Scriptures

- Isa with the figs (2Ki_20:1 etc.)

- Luke the doctor

- take a little wine for stomach

- This promise is ultimately fulfilled in the words of Revelation 21… “leaves for the healing of the nations”


Eph_5:5-7 KJ2000  For this you know, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.  7  Be not therefore partakers with them.


1Th_4:2-9 KJB  Because you know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus,  3  because this is the will of God, your holiness, that you should abstain from fornication:  4  That every one of you know how to possess his own vessel in holiness and honor;  5  Not in the passion of lust just as, also, the nations [non-Jews] who don’t know God:  6  That no one go beyond [i.e. the limits] and steal from [or overreach or defraud] his brother in this matter: because on account of this the Lord is the avenger concerning all these things, as we have also forewarned you and fully testified.  7  Because God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.  8  So consequently, the one who despises does not despise man, but God, who has also given unto us His Holy Spirit.  9  But concerning brotherly love…


Col_3:5-9 KJV  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:  6  For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:  7  In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.  8  But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.  9  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;


Rev_21:8; KJV  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death…


Rev_21:27 KJV  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.


Rev_22:14-15 KJ2000  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.  15  For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.



Heb_12:14 KJV  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:


Greek and Background Details



G3120: μαλακοι ("malakoi"), literally meaning "soft," but functionally meaning, a passive participant in homosexual activity, especially when used alongside the primary word for homosexual, ἀρσενοκοίτης ("arsenokoítēs"), as in 1Co_6:10.



G733: ἀρσενοκοίτης ("arsenokoítēs"), the Greek word for "Homosexual" is used in 1Co_6:9, 1Ti_1:10, and is described in Rom_1:27 in the Greek New Testament.

But with Rom_1:27 some homosexual activists have sought to exploit common ignorance of most people by insisting that this verse is in reference to child-rape, which was common enough practice in Rome at that time, especially for Roman Soldiers. I have sat across the desk from dishonest pastors who claimed this very thing.

Contextually it is clear that this is not the case, because the forbidden homosexual practice in Romans one is not in contrast with "consenting" homosexual practices, but with marriage itself, showing that the homosexual practice itself is altogether condemned.

    Furthermore, having personally read church history concerning this gross practice with boys, it is very clear that Romans one is making no reference to such a practice, since they do not use the Greek word for “boys,” but instead say “men with men” (and not “men with boys”).

    This Greek word for homosexual (ἀρσενοκοίτης) is in reference to the terminology used in the Greek Old Testament in Lev_18:22, where one can see the root words (“man” and “bed”) for this Greek word in the prohibition of homosexuality:

"...μετὰ ἄρσενος οὐ κοιμηθήσῃ κοίτην γυναικός..." (Lev_18:22 LXX)



G3060: "λοίδορος" (loídoros) or slanderers, or revilers


“Forceful Takers”

G727: "ἁρπαξ" (hárpax) or swindlers, or "extortioners" (KJV)



G506: "unsubmitted" or disobedient


G3964/G3389: May also mean "strikers of" "fathers and...mothers" and is comparable to Exo_21:15


G405: "ἀνδραποδισταῖς" (andrapodistais) an enslaver: Based on "andrápodon" (unjustly forced into slavery) rather than "doúlos" (one who gives them self to servitude because of need as an "indentured servant").


Applications of the Lists – for “Sinners”


Sinners Go to Hell


A Few Verses about Sinners

Isa_3:11 CAB Woe to the transgressor! Evils shall happen to him according to the works of his hands.


Psa_1:1-6 CAB Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, and has not stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of evil men.  2  But his pleasure is in the law of the Lord; and in His law will he meditate day and night.  3  And he shall be as a tree planted by the brooks of waters, which shall yield its fruit in its season, and its leaf shall not fall off; and whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.  4  Not so for the ungodly — not so; but rather as the chaff which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth.  5  Therefore the ungodly shall not rise in the judgment, nor sinners in the counsel of the just.  6  For the Lord knows the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Psa_3:7 CAB  ...You have broken the teeth of sinners.


Psa_9:17 CAB Let sinners be driven away into Hades [Hell], even all the nations that forget God.


Psa_11:5-7 CAB The Lord tests the righteous and the ungodly: and he that loves unrighteousness hates his own soul.  6  He shall rain upon sinners snares, fire, and brimstone, and a stormy blast shall be the portion of their cup.  7  For the Lord is righteous, and loves righteousness; His face beholds uprightness.


Psa_28:3-5 CAB Draw not away my soul with sinners, and destroy me not with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, but evil are in their hearts.  4  Give them according to their works, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors; give them according to the works of their hands; render their recompense unto them.  5  Because they have not attended to the works of the Lord, even to the works of His hands, You shall pull them down, and shall not build them up.


Psa_34:21 CAB The death of sinners is evil; and they that hate righteousness will go wrong.


Psa_37:1-40 CAB A Psalm of David.  Do not fret because of evildoers, neither be envious of them that do iniquity.  2  For they shall soon be withered as the grass, and shall soon fall away as the green herbs.  3  Hope in the Lord, and do good... 6  And He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday.  7  Submit yourself to the Lord, and make supplication to Him; do not fret because of him that prospers in his way, at the man that does unlawful deeds.  8  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret, so as not to do evil.  9  For evildoers shall be destroyed; but they that wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the land.  10  And yet a little while, and the sinner shall not be... 12  The sinner will watch for the righteous, and gnash his teeth upon him.  13  But the Lord shall laugh at him; for He foresees that his day will come.  14  Sinners have drawn their swords; they have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay the upright in heart.  15  Let their sword enter into their own heart, and their bows be broken.  16  A little is better to the righteous than the abundant wealth of sinners.  17  For the arms of sinners shall be broken; but the Lord supports the righteous.  18  The Lord knows the ways of the upright; and their inheritance shall be forever...  20  For the sinners shall perish; and the enemies of the Lord at the moment of their being honored and exalted have utterly vanished like smoke.  21  The sinner borrows, and will not pay again; but the righteous has compassion, and gives... 23  The steps of a man are rightly ordered by the Lord...  28  For the Lord loves judgment, and will not forsake His saints; they shall be preserved forever; the blameless shall be avenged, but the seed of the ungodly shall be utterly destroyed... 32  The sinner watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him.  33  But the Lord will not leave him in his hands, nor by any means condemn him when he is judged.  34  Wait on the Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are destroyed, you shall see it.  35  I saw the ungodly very highly exalting himself, and lifting himself up like the cedars of Lebanon.  36  Yet I passed by, and lo! He was not; and I sought him, but his place was not found...  38  But the transgressors shall be utterly destroyed together; the remnants of the ungodly shall be utterly destroyed.  39  But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord; and He is their defender in the time of affliction.  40  And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them; and He shall rescue them from sinners, and save them, because they have hoped in Him.


Psa_68:2-3 CAB As smoke vanishes, let them vanish: as wax melts before the fire, so let the sinners perish from before God.  3  But let the righteous rejoice...


Psa_75:10 CAB And I will break all the horns of sinners; but the horns of the righteous one shall be exalted.

(Also see Psa_75:4-8)


Psa_92:7 CAB When the sinners spring up as the grass, and all the workers of iniquity have watched; it is that they may be utterly destroyed forever.


Psa_101:6-8 CAB My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he that walked in a perfect way, the same ministered to me.  7  He that is proud dwelled not in the midst of my house; the unjust speaker prospered not in my sight.  8  Early did I slay all the sinners of the land, that I might destroy out of the city of the Lord all that work iniquity.


Psa_104:35 CAB Let the sinners fail from off the earth, and transgressors, so that they shall be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul.


Psa_106:17-18 CAB The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and closed upon the congregation of Abiram.  18  And a fire was kindled in their congregation, and a flame burned up the sinners.


Psa_119:110 CAB Sinners spread a snare for me; but I erred not from Your commandments.


Psa_119:119 CAB I have reckoned all the sinners of the earth as transgressors; therefore have I loved Your testimonies.


Psa_119:155 CAB Salvation is far from sinners; for they have not searched out Your statutes.


Psa_129:3-8 CAB The sinners wrought upon my back: they prolonged their iniquity.  4  The righteous Lord has cut in pieces the necks of sinners.  5  Let all that hate Zion be put to shame and turned back.  6  Let them be as the grass of the housetops, which withers before it is plucked up.  7  Wherewith the reaper fills not his hand, nor he that makes up the sheaves, his bosom.  8  Neither do they that go by say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you; we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.


Psa_141:10 CAB Sinners shall fall by their own net: I am alone until I shall escape.


Psa_145:18-20 CAB The Lord is near to all that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.  19  He will perform the desire of them that fear Him: and He will hear their supplication, and save them.  20  The Lord preserves all that love Him: but all sinners He will utterly destroy.


Psa_146:9 CAB He will relieve the orphan and widow: but will utterly remove the way of sinners.


Psa_147:6 CAB The Lord lifts up the meek; but brings sinners down to the ground.

Joh_9:31 CAB Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.


Gal_2:17-18 CAB But if by seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also were found sinners, then is Christ a minister of sin? Certainly not!  18  For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.


>> I quoted this previously… do I need to quote it here?

1Ti_1:8-11 KJB  But we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully; 9  Knowing this: that the law is not laid down for a righteous person but for the lawless and unsubmitted*, G506 for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers* G3964 and murderers of mothers* G3389; for murderers of men;** 10  For fornicators, homosexuals,G733 for slave traders,G405 for liars, for oath breakers, and if there is anything else that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11  According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

 Exo_21:15; Lev_20:9; Deu_27:16; Pro_20:20; Pro_28:24, Pro_30:11, Pro_30:17

Heb_12:14 KJV  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:


---------------DivRem book?---------------

You Can’t Continue To Sin and Go To Heaven

If you continue to sin, then you have no True repentance or salvation.


i.      Jesus Says

Luk_6:43 For a good tree does not produce bad fruit, nor does a bad tree produce good fruit.

Mat_3:10 And now also the ax is laid at the root of the trees, so that every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Luk_6:46 Why do you call me, `Lord, Lord,' and don't do the things which I say?

Joh_14:15 If you Love Me, keep my commands... 23 ...If anyone Loves Me, he will obey my words... 24 He who does not Love me will not obey my words.


ii.    The Bible Also Says

1Jn_2:4 He who says, “I have come to know him,” but does not keep His commands is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.

1Jn_3:6-10 Whoever remains in Him does not continue to sin. Whoever continues to sin has not seen Him, or known Him. 7 Little children, don’t let anyone deceive you: he that does what is right is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He that continues to sin is of the devil; because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this reason the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever is born of God does not continue to sin; for His seed remains in him: and he cannot go on sinning, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God…



In Bondage to Sin

The Progression of Sin to Death

Jas_1:14-15 WEB  But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.  15  Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death.


Remember: To “save a soul from death,” turn them away from sin: Jas_5:20; 2Sa_12:13


It’s Not Good to be a Sinner

Isa_13:9 KJ2000  Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy its sinners out of it.


Sin Confrontation: An Unspeakable Blessing

Act_3:26 WEB  God, having raised up his servant, Jesus, sent him to you first, to bless you, in turning away everyone of you from your wickedness."

2Sa_11:1-27, 2Sa_12:1-14; Psa_51:1-19;


Note: David named his son after the prophet "Nathan," who confronted him for his sin: 1Ch_3:5

This can be somewhat comparable to the fact that Peter greatly commends Paul (2Pe_3:15-16), even after Paul confronted and rebuked him publically (Gal_2:11-21).


Jonah’s Story

“Sodom Principle” – God does not always warn sinners about coming wrath, and He is still justified when He doesn’t: Gen_18:16-22; Gen_19:12-14; Gen_19:27-29 (also Rom_1:18-32 below); Mat_11:23-24


That God would ever warn us to turn us away from sin is truly “An Unspeakable Blessing” because He could just wipe us out and He would still be justified. Jonah understood this when it came to his enemies. While running from God, Jonah understood more about the warning of God’s wrath than 10,000 preachers do today who call it “Judgmental” and “Legalistic”:


Jon_1:2-3; Jon_3:2; Jon_3:10; Jon_4:1-2


Jonah basically said, “What?! You want me to warn them? Are You kidding? I don’t want You to have mercy on them!”


The Compassion that Sent Prophets to Rise Early and Confront Sin

10/7/16; 10/9/16


Neh_9:26 WEB  Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against you, and cast your law behind their back, and killed your prophets that testified against them to turn them again to you, and they committed awful blasphemies.

Neh_9:26 CAB  But they turned, and revolted from You, and cast Your law behind their backs; and they killed Your prophets, who testified against them to turn them back to You, and they worked great provocations.

Neh_9:26  καὶ ἤλλαξαν καὶ ἀπέστησαν ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἔρριψαν τὸν νόμον σου ὀπίσω σώματος αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς προφήτας σου ἀπέκτειναν, οἳ διεμαρτύραντο ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτοὺς πρὸς σέ, καὶ ἐποίησαν παροργισμοὺς μεγάλους.

Neh_9:27 Therefore you delivered them into the hand of their adversaries, who distressed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried to you, you heard from heaven; and according to your manifold mercies you gave them saviors who saved them out of the hand of their adversaries.

Neh_9:27 Then You gave them into the hand of them that afflicted them, and they did afflict them. And they cried to You in the time of their affliction, and You heard them from heaven, and in Your great mercy You gave them deliverers, and saved them from the hand of them that afflicted them.

Neh_9:27  καὶ ἔδωκας αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ θλιβόντων αὐτούς, καὶ ἔθλιψαν αὐτούς· καὶ ἀνεβόησαν πρὸς σὲ ἐν καιρῷ θλίψεως αὐτῶν, καὶ σὺ ἐξ οὐρανοῦ σου ἤκουσας καὶ ἐν οἰκτιρμοῖς σου τοῖς μεγάλοις ἔδωκας αὐτοῖς σωτῆρας καὶ ἔσωσας αὐτοὺς ἐκ χειρὸς θλιβόντων αὐτούς.

Neh_9:28 But after they had rest, they did evil again before you; therefore left you them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried to you, you heard from heaven; and many times you delivered them according to your mercies,

Neh_9:28 But when they rested, they did evil again before You, so You left them in the hands of their enemies, and they ruled over them; and they cried again to You, and You heard from heaven, and delivered them in Your great mercy.

Neh_9:28  καὶ ὡς ἀνεπαύσαντο, ἐπέστρεψαν ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου· καὶ ἐγκατέλιπες αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖρας ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν, καὶ κατῆρξαν ἐν αὐτοῖς. καὶ πάλιν ἀνεβόησαν πρὸς σέ, καὶ σὺ ἐξ οὐρανοῦ εἰσήκουσας καὶ ἐρρύσω αὐτοὺς ἐν οἰκτιρμοῖς σου πολλοῖς.

Neh_9:29 and testified against them, that you might bring them again to your law. Yet they dealt proudly, and didn't listen to your commandments, but sinned against your ordinances,  (which if a man do, he shall live in them), and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.

Neh_9:29 And You testified against them, to bring them back to Your law; but they hearkened not, and sinned against Your commandments and Your judgments, which if a man does, he shall live in them; and they turned their back, and hardened their neck, and heard not.

Neh_9:29  καὶ ἐπεμαρτύρω αὐτοῖς ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν νόμον σου, καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν, ἀλλὰ ἐν ταῖς ἐντολαῖς σου καὶ ἐν τοῖς κρίμασί σου ἡμάρτοσαν, ἃ ποιήσας αὐτὰ ἄνθρωπος ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἔδωκαν νῶτον ἀπειθοῦντα καὶ τράχηλον αὐτῶν ἐσκλήρυναν καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν.

Neh_9:30 Yet many years you put up with them, and testified against them by your Spirit through your prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore you gave them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.

Neh_9:30 Yet You had patience with them for many years, and testified to them by Your Spirit by the hand of Your prophets: but they hearkened not; so You gave them into the hand of the nations of the land.

Neh_9:30  καὶ εἵλκυσας ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς ἔτη πολλὰ καὶ ἐπεμαρτύρω αὐτοῖς ἐν πνεύματί σου ἐν χειρὶ προφητῶν σου· καὶ οὐκ ἠνωτίσαντο, καὶ ἔδωκας αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ λαῶν τῆς γῆς.

2Ch_36:14 CAB  And all the great men of Judah, and the priests, and the people of the land transgressed abundantly in the abominations of the heathen, and polluted the house of the Lord which was in Jerusalem.

2Ch_36:14  καὶ πάντες οἱ ἔνδοξοι Ιουδα καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς ἐπλήθυναν τοῦ ἀθετῆσαι ἀθετήματα βδελυγμάτων ἐθνῶν καὶ ἐμίαναν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου τὸν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ.

2Ch_36:15 Yahweh, the God of their fathers, sent to them by his messengers, rising up early and sending, because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:

2Ch_36:15 And the Lord God of their fathers sent by the hand of His prophets; rising early and sending His messengers, for He had compassion on His people, and His sanctuary.

2Ch_36:15  καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν ἐν χειρὶ προφητῶν ὀρθρίζων καὶ ἀποστέλλων τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἦν φειδόμενος τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ·

2Ch_36:16 but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and scoffed at his prophets, until the wrath of Yahweh arose against his people, until there was no remedy.

2Ch_36:16 Nevertheless they sneered at His messengers, and despised His words, and mocked His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose up against His people, till there was no remedy.

2Ch_36:16  καὶ ἦσαν μυκτηρίζοντες τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξουδενοῦντες τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐμπαίζοντες ἐν τοῖς προφήταις αὐτοῦ, ἕως ἀνέβη ὁ θυμὸς κυρίου ἐν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ, ἕως οὐκ ἦν ἴαμα.

2Ch_36:17 Therefore he brought on them the king of the Chaldeans, who killed their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion on young man or virgin, old man or gray-headed: he gave them all into his hand.

2Ch_36:17 And He brought the king of the Chaldeans against them, and killed their young men with the sword in the house of His sanctuary, and did not spare Zedekiah, and had no mercy upon their virgins, and they led away their old men; He delivered all things into their hands.

2Ch_36:17  καὶ ἤγαγεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς βασιλέα Χαλδαίων, καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν τοὺς νεανίσκους αὐτῶν ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ ἐν οἴκῳ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσατο τοῦ Σεδεκιου καὶ τὰς παρθένους αὐτῶν οὐκ ἠλέησαν καὶ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους αὐτῶν ἀπήγαγον· τὰ πάντα παρέδωκεν ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν.

2Ch_36:18 All the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of Yahweh, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes, all these he brought to Babylon.

2Ch_36:18 And all the vessels of the house of God, the great and the small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and all the treasures of the king and the great men; he brought all to Babylon.

2Ch_36:19 They burnt the house of God, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all its palaces with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels of it.

2Ch_36:19 And he burned the house of the Lord, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, and burned its palaces with fire, and utterly destroyed every beautiful vessel.

When you look at it in light of such truth, it makes a lot of sense why “sin confrontation” is such an “unspeakable blessing” and act of loving kindness and compassion and mercy.


Getting Real Salvation Means First Facing Sin

>> reincorporate all of this into the beginning

Rom_1:15-17 - has to do with “salvation”


(Especially: Rom_1:29-32)


1Co_15:34 CAB  Awake to righteousness, and do not sin…


It is high time we finally believed and obeyed this verse from the heart!




Joh_8:34 CAB  Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly I say to you, that everyone that practices sin is a slave of sin.

Joh_8:34 Greek  ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς· ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν ἁμαρτίαν δοῦλός ἐστι τῆς ἁμαρτίας.

Rom_6:7 WEB  For he who has died has been freed from sin.


1Pe_4:1-5 WEB  Forasmuch then as Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;  2  that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.  3  For we have spent enough of our past time living in doing the desire of the Gentiles, and to have walked in lewdness, lusts, drunken binges, orgies, carousings, and abominable idolatries.  4  They think it is strange that you don't run with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming:  5  who will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

Perfection Proclamation

1Jn 4:17 CAB   By this love has been perfected with us: that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because just as He is, we also are in this world.

1Jn 4:17  ἐν τούτῳ τετελείωται ἡ ἀγάπη μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν, ἵνα παρρησίαν ἔχωμεν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς κρίσεως, ὅτι καθὼς ἐκεῖνός ἐστι καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐσμεν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ τούτῳ.

1Jn 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment. But he that fears has not been made perfect in love.

1Jn 4:18  φόβος οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν τῇ ἀγάπῃ, ἀλλ᾿ ἡ τελεία ἀγάπη ἔξω βάλλει τὸν φόβον, ὅτι ὁ φόβος κόλασιν ἔχει· ὁ δὲ φοβούμενος οὐ τετελείωται ἐν τῇ ἀγάπῃ.



Legitimate children of the clean God cannot sin Continually




Not that “you can’t be perfect”, but that “you can’t go on sinning”, as first 1Jn_3: says

As Paul says, we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth


2Pe 2:14 CAB  having eyes full of adultery and unable to cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart having been trained in greediness, they are accursed children.

2Pe 2:14  ὀφθαλμοὺς ἔχοντες μεστοὺς μοιχαλίδος καὶ ἀκαταπαύστους ἁμαρτίας, δελεάζοντες ψυχὰς ἀστηρίκτους, καρδίαν γεγυμνασμένην πλεονεξίας ἔχοντες, κατάρας τέκνα·


We see that the Bible is condemning protestant theology and it’s end-times prophesy against Antichrist’s kingdom and deception.



Heb 3:17 CAB   And with whom was He indignant forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?

Heb 3:17  τίσι δὲ προσώχθισε τεσσεράκοντα ἔτη; οὐχὶ τοῖς ἁμαρτήσασιν, ὧν τὰ κῶλα ἔπεσεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ;

Heb 3:17  τισιν δε προσωχθισεν Aτεσσερακοντα TSBτεσσαρακοντα ετη ουχι τοις αμαρτησασιν ων τα κωλα επεσεν εν τη ερημω


>> almost all church people still believe that you can sin and you will not surely die




1Ti_5:7 CAB  And these things command, so that they may be blameless.

1Ti_5:7  καὶ ταῦτα παράγγελλε, ἵνα ἀνεπίληπτοι ὦσιν.





Good tree cannot bear/DO bad fruit


If you cannot do bad, that sounds very much like perfection.

If you cannot do wrong, then it is very logical to say that you definitely CAN be perfect, that is, you can only bear/DO good fruit like Jesus says it absolutely the case with good trees.




Lev_20:8 KJV+  And ye shall keepH8104 (H853) my statutes,H2708 and doH6213 them: IH589 am the LORDH3068 which sanctifyH6942 you.

Lev_20:8 LB ‘And you shall observe My ordinances, and do them: I am the Lord that sanctifies you.

Lev_20:8  καὶ φυλάξεσθε τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτά· ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ ἁγιάζων ὑμᾶς.


Lev_20:26 KJV+  And ye shall beH1961 holyH6918 unto me: forH3588 IH589 the LORDH3068 am holy,H6918 and have severedH914 you fromH4480 other people,H5971 that ye should beH1961 mine.

Lev_20:26 LB And you shall be holy to Me; because I the Lord your God am holy, who separated you from all nations, to be Mine.

Lev_20:26  καὶ ἔσεσθέ μοι ἅγιοι, ὅτι ἐγὼ ἅγιος κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ὁ ἀφορίσας ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν εἶναι ἐμοί.






Job held on to his integrity and would not give up into the sinful complacency of the flesh that loves to resolve itself to be a sinner.


Church gives the hope of being a sinner. The Bible gives a hope of being perfect.








1Pe_4:1 CAB Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same mind, because he who suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,

1Pe_4:1  Χριστοῦ οὖν παθόντος ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν σαρκὶ καὶ ὑμεῖς τὴν αὐτὴν ἔννοιαν ὁπλίσασθε, ὅτι ὁ παθὼν σαρκὶ πέπαυται ἁμαρτίας,






Sir_21:1 My son, if you have sinned, do so no more,

and pray to be forgiven for your past sins.

2 Flee from sin as from a serpent

that will bite you if you go near it;

its teeth are lion’s teeth,

destroying the souls of men.

3 Every offense is a two-edged sword;

when it cuts, there can be no healing.

Perfection Proclamation

Intro to the Need to Proclaim Perfection


There is much need to finally proclaim perfection because this evil and sinful age is so obsessively bent on believing only god(s) can be perfect.

It is time to demand the real standard of perfection like Jesus said.


Procrastinating Perfection



“One Day” You Will NOT Be Perfect in Heaven



Procrastinating perfection is a sin that can easily send you to hell.

Jesus said to do it.

He said many would find some reason not to obey it.

If you disobey Jesus’ command and ‘make the Word of God of no effect’ then you will deserve every bit of hell fire you get.



If you keep waiting for the pie in the sky in the sweet by and by you will go “by-by” at Judgment, and never get to that perfection.


Jesus did not wait till heaven, and He commands you the same standard.


Paul was not waiting for heaven so that he could stop sinning…


He who has suffered in the flesh is done with sin



Perfect Pastor



Charge them that they may be blameless

>> ‘if this was to be understood as literally perfect, no one would be qualified to be a pastor’

>> that’s the point!





The State of Perfection is Not Sinlessness But Completeness of Accessing Divinity



There was a time when Jesus was sinless but not yet perfected.


Law & Hebrews: being perfected

>> this bring into view the idea of completion

>> sinlessness is not the point of “perfection” here, because Jesus was already sinless before He was perfected


This strongly proves that “the last time you sinned” has nothing to do with perfection.


The real questions to determine perfection are:





God Remembered David as Righteous


>> Sync: lo & sinl!

>> See: the other examples in SinL of Biblical people whom church people Criticize and blaspheme


2Ch_7:17 KJV+  And as for thee,H859 ifH518 thou wilt walkH1980 beforeH6440 me, asH834 DavidH1732 thy fatherH1 walked,H1980 and doH6213 according to allH3605 thatH834 I have commandedH6680 thee, and shalt observeH8104 my statutesH2706 and my judgments;H4941

2Ch_7:17 And if you will walk before Me as David your father did, and will do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My ordinances and My judgments;

2Ch_7:17  καὶ σὺ ἐὰν πορευθῇς ἐναντίον μου ὡς Δαυιδ ὁ πατήρ σου καὶ ποιήσῃς κατὰ πάντα, ἃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι, καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου φυλάξῃ,

2Ch_7:18 KJV+  Then will I stablishH6965 (H853) the throneH3678 of thy kingdom,H4438 according asH834 I have covenantedH3772 with DavidH1732 thy father,H1 saying,H559 There shall notH3808 failH3772 thee a manH376 to be rulerH4910 in Israel.H3478

2Ch_7:18 then will I establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘There shall not fail you a man ruling in Israel.’

2Ch_7:18  καὶ ἀναστήσω τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας σου, ὡς διεθέμην Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί σου λέγων Οὐκ ἐξαρθήσεταί σοι ἀνὴρ ἡγούμενος ἐν Ισραηλ.


Solomon was the son of Bathsheba.

He knew very well of David’s “mistake”.

And why is it that Biblical people can turn around and see those who supposedly “made mistakes”, and very easily see them as a solid eternal pillar of righteousness to imitate?


And look over to your left and behold the flesh ball hypocrite church person…

If Solomon in all of his wisdom was commanded to be like David blameless and shining legacy,

How much more should ignorant foolish church ball be like David rather than criticizing him.



Church people always find hypocritical in sinful excuses to criticize the very people that are better than them, that they should have been imitating. -- this is like the whole summary of the gospel of imitation…  For us especially.







'Noah was a righteous man, and -perfect in his generation, and Noah walked with God.'—Gen. vi. 9.

'And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God and esoheweth evil?'—Job i. 8.

'The heart of David was perfect with the Lord his God.'—1 Kings xi. 4, xv. 3.

'Asa's heart was perfect with the Lord all his days.'— 1 Kings Xv. 14.



“"We know how Noah fell. We know how Job had to humble himself beforo God. "We know how sadly David sinned. And of Asa we read that there liune a time when he did foolishly, and relied on the Syrians and not on the Lord his God; when in his disease he sought not to the Lord, but to the physicians. And yet the heart of these men was perfect with the Lord their God.1”



“Titus_1:6 “An elder must be blameless…” Clearly, if we take this to mean literally perfect–without sin–then no one would be qualified to be an elder. The parallel verse in 1 Tim_3:2 commands that an elder be “above reproach.””







Not So Perfect?

Job_15:14 WEB  What is man, that he should be clean? What is he who is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?

Job_15:14 CAB  For who, being a mortal, is such that he shall be blameless? Or who that is born of a woman, that he should be just?

Job_15:14  τίς γὰρ ὢν βροτός, ὅτι ἔσται ἄμεμπτος, ἢ ὡς ἐσόμενος δίκαιος γεννητὸς γυναικός;

Job_15:15 Behold, he puts no trust in his holy ones. Yes, the heavens are not clean in his sight;

Job_15:15 Forasmuch as He trusts not His saints, and the heaven is not pure before Him.

Job_15:15  εἰ κατὰ ἁγίων οὐ πιστεύει, οὐρανὸς δὲ οὐ καθαρὸς ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ.

Job_15:16 how much less one who is abominable and corrupt, a man who drinks iniquity like water!

Job_15:16 Alas then, abominable and unclean is man, drinking unrighteousness as a draught.

Job_15:16  ἔα δὲ ἐβδελυγμένος καὶ ἀκάθαρτος, ἀνὴρ πίνων ἀδικίας ἴσα ποτῷ.

“In 1Ki_8:46 we read, If they sin against thee, for there is no man that sinneth not. On this verse we may observe that the second clause, as it is here translated, renders the supposition in the first clause entirely nugatory; for if there be no man that sinneth not, it is useless to say, If they sin; but this contradiction is taken away by reference to the original, כי יחטאו לך  ki yechetu lach, which should be translated If they shall sin against thee, or should they sin against thee; כי אין אדם אשר לא יחטא  ki ein Adam asher lo yecheta, for there is no man that May not sin; i.e., there is no man impeccable, none infallible, none that is not liable to transgress. This is the true meaning of the phrase in various parts of the Bible, and so our translators have understood the original: for even in the thirty-first verse of this chapter they have translated יחטא  yecheta, If a man Trespass; which certainly implies he might or might not do it; and in this way they have translated the same word, If a soul Sin, in Lev_5:1; Lev_6:2; 1Sa_2:25; 2Ch_6:22, and in several other places. The truth is, the Hebrew has no mood to express words in the permissive or optative way, but to express this sense it uses the future tense of the conjugation kal.

This text has been a wonderful strong hold for all who believe that there is no redemption from sin in this life, that no man can live without committing sin, and that we cannot be entirely freed from it till we die.

1. The text speaks no such doctrine: it only speaks of the possibility of every man sinning, and this must be true of a state of probation.

2. There is not another text in the Divine records that is more to the purpose than this.

3. The doctrine is flatly in opposition to the design of the Gospel; for Jesus came to save his people from their sins, and to destroy the works of the devil.

4. It is a dangerous and destructive doctrine; and should be blotted out of every Christian’s creed. There are too many who are seeking to excuse their crimes by all means in their power; and we need not embody their excuses in a creed, to complete their deception, by stating that their sins are unavoidable.”

(Clarke on 1Ki_8:46)


Ecc_7:20 WEB Surely there is not a righteous man on earth, who does good and doesn't sin.

Ecc_7:20 CAB For there is not a righteous man in the earth who will do good, and not sin.

Pro_20 WEB: 9 Who can say, "I have made my heart pure. I am clean and without sin?"

Pro_20:9 CAB  Who will boast that he has a pure heart? Or who will boldly say that he is pure from sins?

Pro_20:9  τίς καυχήσεται ἁγνὴν ἔχειν τὴν καρδίαν; ἢ τίς παρρησιάσεται καθαρὸς εἶναι ἀπὸ ἁμαρτιῶν;


κακολογοῦντος πατέρα ἢ μητέρα σβεσθήσεται λαμπτήρ, αἱ δὲ κόραι τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτοῦ ὄψονται σκότος.

μερὶς ἐπισπουδαζομένη ἐν πρώτοις ἐν τοῖς τελευταίοις οὐκ εὐλογηθήσεται.

μὴ εἴπῃς Τείσομαι τὸν ἐχθρόν· ἀλλὰ ὑπόμεινον τὸν κύριον, ἵνα σοι βοηθήσῃ.

The Message says, “Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture.” But sin is absent from the list Paul gives of that which can separate us from God. Paul says that nothing external can separate us from the love of God. But sin will sparate you from God. Eugene Peterson says that not even the worst sins listed in Scripture can separate us from God, while the prophet Isaiah says, “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isa_59:2).
