Sin, The Hostile Takeover of Society

Either we live in support of the degradation of our society or we work actively to overcome these things, which most in our culture, would say we find abhorant. You fill in the topic with your favorite theme from today's headlines.

There is no in between. Sin a hostile takeover of God's plan. The only way to combat sin is through trusting Jesus Christ; that He is Lord, and wilfully surrendering to Him as Lord of our own lives. Then, we begin to grow in Him, in His teaching, through God's word. Under our own power ...we will fight sin for a day, before we simply find ourselves agreeing to a way to just live with it. -Steve Terrell

"Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too. We know we love God's children if we love God and obey his commandments. Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God." (1John 5:1-5 NLT)
