For in the case of people who have been once enlightened, who tasted the heavenly Gift, who participated in the holy Spirit, who tasted the goodness of God's word and the powers of the world to come, and then fell away ??6 it is impossible to make them repent afresh, since they crucify the Son of God in their own persons and hold him up to obloquy. For land which absorbs the rain that often falls on it, and bears plants that are useful to those for whom it is tilled, receives a blessing from God; read more.
whereas, if it produces thorns and thistles, it is reprobate and on the verge of being cursed ??its fate is to be burned.

For if we sin deliberately, after receiving the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left, nothing but an awful outlook of doom, of that burning Wrath which will consume the foes of God. Anyone who has rejected the law of Moses dies without mercy, on the evidence of two or of three witnesses. read more.
How much heavier, do you suppose, will be the punishment assigned to him who has spurned the Son of God, who has profaned the covenant-blood with which he was sanctified, who has insulted the Spirit of grace?

If anyone notices his brother committing a sin which is not deadly, he will ask and obtain life for him ??for anyone who does not commit a deadly sin. There is such a thing as deadly sin; I do not mean he is to pray for that. All iniquity is sin, but there are sins which are not deadly.



By talking arrogant futilities they beguile with the sensual lure of fleshly passion those who are just escaping from the company of misconduct ??19 promising them freedom, when they are themselves enslaved to corruption (for a man is the slave of whatever overpowers him).




Everyone is tempted as he is beguiled and allured by his own desire;







Bad characters and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and deceived themselves;





My dear children, I am writing this to you that you may not sin; but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father in Jesus Christ the just;


Later on Jesus met him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you are well and strong; commit no more sins, in case something worse befalls you."

She said, "No one, sir." Jesus said, "Neither do I; be off, and never sin again."]

Sin is not to reign, then, over your mortal bodies and make you obey their passions;

Get back to your sober senses and avoid sin, for some of you ??and I say this to your shame ??some of you are insensible to God.



done out of the profits of their evil-doing. Pleasure for them is revelling in open daylight ??spots and blots, with their dissipated revelling, as they carouse in your midst! ??14 their eyes are full of harlotry, insatiable for sin; their own hearts trained to lust, they beguile unsteady souls. Accursed generation!

For if the divine word spoken by angels held good, if transgression and disobedience met with due punishment in every case,

Sin's wage is death, but God's gift is life eternal in Christ Jesus our Lord.

whereas he who was ignorant and did what deserves a beating, will receive few lashes. He who has much given him will have much required from him, and he who has much entrusted to him will have all the more demanded of him.

Now I know, brothers, that you acted in ignorance, like your rulers ??18 though this was how God fulfilled what he had announced beforehand by the lips of all the prophets, namely the sufferings of his Christ.






The Law is spiritual; we know that. But then I am a creature of the flesh, in the thraldom of sin.



For though you were dead in your trespasses, your flesh uncircumcised, He made you live with Christ, He forgave us all our trespasses,

Woe to you, you impious scribes and Pharisees! you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and omit the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faithfulness; these latter you ought to have practised ??without omit ting the former.

The servant who knew his lord and master's orders and did not prepare for them, will receive many lashes;

[follows 2:26] Whoever, then, knows what is right to do and does not do it, that is a sin for him.

Then he will answer them, 'I tell you truly, in so far as you did not do it to one of these, even the least of them, you did not do it to me.'

But woe to you Pharisees! you tithe mint and rue and every vegetable, but justice and the love of God you disregard; these latter you ought to have practised ??without omitting the former.






And as with us so with you. You were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you moved as you followed the course of this world, under the sway of the prince of the air ??the spirit which is at present active within those sons of disobedience among whom all of us lived, we as well as you, when we obeyed the passions of our flesh, carrying out the dictates of the flesh and its impulses, when we were objects of God's anger by nature, like the rest of men.




For out of the heart come evil designs, murder, adultery, sexual vice, stealing, false witness, and slander.

then Desire conceives and breeds Sin, while Sin matures and gives birth to Death.

Where do conflicts, where do wrangles come from, in your midst? Is it not from these passions of yours that war among your members?







he who commits sin belongs to the devil, for the devil is a sinner from the very beginning. (This is why the Son of God appeared, to destroy the deeds of the devil.)


Well now, are we Jews in a better position? Not at all. I have already charged all, Jews as well as Greeks, with being under sin ??10 as it is written, None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands, no one seeks for God. All have swerved, one and all have gone wrong, no one does good, not a single one.


but if you pay servile regard to people, you commit a sin, and the Law convicts you of transgression.


For our sakes He made him to be sin who himself knew nothing of sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

for ours is no high priest who is incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every respect like ourselves, yet without sinning.

and you know he appeared to take [our] sins away. In him there is no sin;

Such was the high priest for us, saintly, innocent, unstained, lifted high above the heavens, far from all contact with the sinful,


Thus, then, sin came into the world by one man, and death came in by sin; and so death spread to all men, inasmuch as all men sinned. Sin was indeed in the world before the Law, but sin is never counted in the absence of law. Nevertheless, from Adam to Moses death reigned even over those whose sins were not like Adam's transgression. Adam prefigured Him who was to come, read more.
but the gift is very different from the trespass. For while the rest of men died by the trespass of one man, the grace of God and the free gift which comes by the grace of the one man Jesus Christ overflowed far more richly upon the rest of men. Nor is the free gift like the effect of the one man's sin; for while the sentence ensuing on a single sin resulted in doom, the free gift ensuing on many trespasses issues in acquittal. For if the trespass of one man allowed death to reign through that one man, much more shall those who receive the overflowing grace and free gift of righteousness reign in life through One, through Jesus Christ. Well then, as one man's trespass issued in doom for all, so one man's act of redress issues in acquittal and life for all. Just as one man's disobedience made all the rest sinners, so one man's obedience will make all the rest righteous. Law slipped in to aggravate the trespass; sin increased, but grace surpassed it far, so that, while sin had reigned the reign of death, grace might also reign with a righteousness that ends in life eternal through Jesus Christ our Lord.


But it is not so! Christ did rise from the dead, he was the first to be reaped of those who sleep in death. For since death came by man, by man came also resurrection from the dead; as all die in Adam, so shall all be made alive in Christ. read more.
But each in his own division: ??Christ the first to be reaped; after that, all who belong to Christ, at his arrival. Then comes the end, when he hands over his royal power to God the Father, after putting down all other rulers, all other authorities and powers. For he must reign until all his foes are put under his feet. (Death is the last foe to be put down.) For God has put everything under his feet. When it is said that everything has been put under him, plainly that excludes Him who put everything under him; and when everything is put under him, then the Son himself will be put under Him who put everything under him, so that God may be everything to everyone.







how shall we escape the penalty for neglecting a salvation which was originally proclaimed by the Lord himself and guaranteed to us by those who heard him,

You serpents! you brood of vipers! how can you escape being sentenced to Gehenna?





"What does the man mean by talking like this? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins, who but God alone?"


















then Desire conceives and breeds Sin, while Sin matures and gives birth to Death.





His master said to him in reply, 'You rascal, you idle servant! You knew, did you, that I reap where I have never sowed and gather where I have never winnowed!



Everyone also who says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven for it, but he who blasphemes against the holy Spirit will never be forgiven.

I tell you therefore, men will be forgiven any sin and blasphemy, but they will not be forgiven for blaspheming the Spirit.










he bore our sins in his own body on the gibbet, that we might break with sin and live for righteousness; and by his wounds you have been healed.

So you must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Never! How can we live in sin any longer, when we died to sin?





Then did what was meant for my good prove fatal to me? Never! It was sin; sin resulted in death for me by making use of this good thing. This was how sin was to be revealed in its true nature; it was to use the command to become sinful in the extreme.






Therefore you are inexcusable, whoever you are, if you pose as a judge, for in judging another you condemn yourself; you, the judge, do the very same things yourself.

They would not be guilty, if I had not come and spoken to them; but, as it is, they have no excuse for their sin ??23 he who hates me hates my Father also.



The command gave an impulse to sin, sin beguiled me and used the command to kill me.

For when we were unspiritual, the sinful cravings excited by the Law were active in our members and made us fruitful to Death;

The command gave an impulse to sin, and sin resulted for me in all manner of covetous desire ??for sin, apart from law, is lifeless.





that no one turns to sexual vice or to a profane life as Esau did ??Esau, who for a single meal parted with his birthright. You know how later on, when he wanted to obtain his inheritance of blessing, he was set aside; he got no chance to repent, though he tried for it with tears.





And when he comes, he will convict the world, convincing men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment:



though they know God's decree that people who practise such vice deserve death, they not only do it themselves but applaud those who practise it.






envy, [murder], drinking bouts, revelry, and the like; I tell you beforehand as I have told you already, that people who indulge in such practices will never inherit the Realm of God.

Now the deeds of the flesh are quite obvious, such as sexual vice, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, magic, quarrels, dissension, jealousy, temper, rivalry, factions, party-spirit,



Render to her what she rendered to others, aye, double the doom for all she has done; mix her the draught double in the cup she mixed for others.






As for the seed that fell among thorns, that means people who hear but who go and get choked with worries and money and the pleasures of life, so that they never ripen.






















Jesus replied, "Truly, truly I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave. Now the slave does not remain in the household for all time; the son of the house does.

What follows, then? Are we 'to sin, because we live under grace, not under law'? Never! Do you not know you are the servants of the master you obey, of the master to whom you yield yourselves obedient, whether it is Sin, whose service ends in death, or Obedience, whose service ends in righteousness? Thank God, though you did serve sin, you have rendered whole-hearted obedience to what you were taught under the rule of faith; read more.
set free from sin, you have passed into the service of righteousness. (I use this human analogy to bring the truth home to your weak nature.) As you once dedicated your members to the service of vice and lawlessness, so now dedicate them to the service of righteousness that means consecration. When you served sin, you were free of righteousness.



but if we live and move within the light, as he is within the light, then we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin.










After escaping the pollutions of the world by the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, if they get entangled and overpowered again, the last state is worse for them than the first.

Then it goes off to fetch seven other spirits worse than itself; they go in and dwell there, and the last state of that man is worse than the first. This is how it will be with the present evil generation."

But the solid foundation laid by God remains, and this is its inscription: the Lord knows who are his, and 'let everyone who names the name of the Lord give up evil.'



If you live by the flesh, you are on the road to death; but if by the Spirit you put the actions of the body to death, you will live.

So put to death those members that are on earth: sexual vice, impurity, appetite, evil desire, and lust (which is idolatry),



Just as David himself describes the bliss of the man who has righteousness counted to him by God apart from what he does ??7 Blessed are they whose breaches of the Law are forgiven, whose sins are covered!






Some people's sins are notorious and call for judgment, but in some cases sin only comes out afterwards.








Everyone who commits sin commits lawlessness: sin is lawlessness,









how much more shall the blood of Christ, who in the spirit of the eternal offered himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve a living God?

Let us pass on then to what is mature, leaving elementary Christian doctrine behind, instead of laying the foundation over again with repentance from dead works, with faith in God,








Everyone who commits sin commits lawlessness: sin is lawlessness,

For whoever obeys the whole of the Law and only makes a single slip, is guilty of everything. He who said, Do not commit adultery, also said, Do not kill. Now if you do not commit adultery but if you kill, you have transgressed the Law.















but then I find quite another law in my members which conflicts with the law of my mind and makes me a prisoner to sin's law that resides in my members.

That being so, it is not I who do the deed but sin that dwells within me.

















for no person will be acquitted in his sight on the score of obedience to law. What the Law imparts is the consciousness of sin.

What follows, then? That 'the Law is equivalent to sin'? Never! Why, had it not been for the Law, I would never have known what sin meant! Thus I would never have known what it is to covet, unless the Law had said, You must not covet.


We know that anyone who is born of God does not sin; He who was born of God preserves him, and the evil One never catches him.

So calling for lights he rushed in, fell in terror before Paul and Silas,





We know that anyone who is born of God does not sin; He who was born of God preserves him, and the evil One never catches him.

'Born of him!' Think what a love the Father has for us, in letting us be called 'children of God!' That is what we are. The world does not recognize us? That is simply because it did not recognize him. We are children of God now, beloved; what we are to be is not apparent yet, but we do know that when he appears, we are to be like him ??for we are to see him as he is. And everyone who rests this hope on him, purifies himself as he is pure. read more.

You belong to your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires; he was a slayer of men from the very beginning, and he has no place in the truth because there is no truth in him: when he tells a lie, he is expressing his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

"There was a moneylender who had two debtors; one owed him fifty pounds, the other five. As they were unable to pay, he freely forgave them both. Tell me, now, which of them will love him most?" "I suppose," said Simon, "the man who had most forgiven." "Quite right," he said. read more.

We believe that as we have died with Christ we shall also live with him; for we know that Christ never dies after his resurrection from the dead ??death has no more hold over him; the death he died was for sin, once for all, but the life he lives is for God.
