Sin

The question of sin is one of the most misunderstood topics in the world in general and Christianity in particular.

What is sin?

According to the Bible, "...sin is transgression of the Law" (I John 3:4)*

What is the origin of sin?

Adam disobeyed the law of Yahweh (not to touch the fruit from the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil), and became condemned or died instantaneously in his conscience ("For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." - Romans 8:6). This sinful, carnal, or condemned nature was passed upon all men:
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come... (Romans 5:12-14)

What was the mission of Yahshua the Messiah with regard to sin?

Yahshua's mission was to atone for Adamic transgression and sin of the world and thereby make an end of sin. Yahshua was, is and will be the only sacrifice offered by Yahweh to take away the sins of mankind and cleanse the conscience from condemnation.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness (Daniel 9:24).

The next day John seeth Yahshua coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of Yahweh, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29).

Then said Yahshua to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Yahshua answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:31-36)

Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Yahshua the Messiah (Romans 5:18-21)

How much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Yahweh, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? (Hebrews 9:14)

For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself (Hebrews 9:26).

And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin (1 John 3:5).

Did the apostles, filled with the Holy Spirit, testify that Yahshua had made their lives free from sin?

Yes, the apostles testified that Yahshua took away their sins and they committed sins no more. Here are the examples of what Paul, Peter and John wrote:

But Yahweh be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. (Romans 6:17,18)

Forasmuch then as the Messiah hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin (1 Peter 4:1).

The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward Yahweh,) by the resurrection of Yahshua (1 Peter 3:21).

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of Yahweh doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and He cannot sin, because He is born of Yahweh. (I John 3:8,9)

What did Dr. Kinley teach about sin after receiving the Divine vision?

Dr. Kinley, after he received the vision and revelation from Yahweh, was confirming the apostles that people with the Holy Spirit do not sin. Here are the transcribed fragments from two Dr. Kinley lectures:

Now after He died, on the cross � now I want you to pay attention to what I'm saying, because we don't wanna make a failure out of His ministry. We don't want you to misunderstand. We don't want you to misconstrue. He died to put an end to sin, and there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin. Read John, 'Whosoever is born of Yahweh doth not commit sin.' [ ] Now what is a sin in the first place? Lotta people don't know what a sin is. They think chewing tobacco and smoking cigarettes and drinking whiskey, say that's what a sin is. [Sin is] a transgression of the law. Now I'm having you look these things up. But now what we're really after is after Yahshua the Messiah.. had died� resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven, poured out the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, and from there on they were out of the sinning business. And we don't want you to have the impression that you continue on in sin. � If you notice on the Day of Pentecost they were filled with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Now if you had a glass and you filled it full of water you couldn't get no more in it. Why? Because it's filled. And when you are filled with the Holy Spirit it is that Holy Spirit that moves out, moves the satanic spirit out.

Now John said that He was manifested to make an end of sin, to get it stopped. So now, when He's offered up out there, there will be no more brother sinning against brother to have to go and confess all the time. That's why I said the confession business is all wrong [ ]. Now, have I made that clear? A man that has got the Holy Ghost in him or has got Christ in him definitely and positively does not sin against his brother; and not only that, he does not commit sin. Well, somebody say, 'Well, why don't he?' Because His seed remaineth in Him, and He cannot sin. Now, they're saying you're going out there sinning against your brother, and then running and confessing it to the priest out there, and you're going right back out and doing the same thing all over again. Now, that's nothing but just open blasphemy.

What do Christians believe about sin?

Most Christian theologians teach that a believer still commits sins because of the inherited sinful Adamic nature. Thus, they deny the Scriptures that Yahshua died to make an end of sins (John 1:29, Romans 5:18,19; 6:6-7; 1 John 3:5,6).

Here are typical quotes from a Catholic website and Billy Graham's website:

  • From the Catechism of the Catholic Church (http://www.vatican.va/archive/catechism/p2s2c2a4.htm#I):

    • 401: And even after Christ's atonement, sin raises its head in countless ways among Christians.

    • 1457: According to the Church's command, "...after having attained the age of discretion, each of the faithful is bound by an obligation faithfully to confess serious sins at least once a year."

  • From Billy Graham's website:

    • Q: I'm a Christian. Will I lose my salvation if I sin?
      A: The person who makes a genuine commitment of his life to Christ becomes a child of God and a member of God's family (John 1:12) []. However, just because we have committed our lives to Christ does not mean we will no longer struggle with temptation, and sometimes sin. Even the great apostle Paul could say, "I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me" (Romans 7:21). When we do sin, God does not reject us or disown us. Our fellowship with Him may be broken, but our relationship is not; we are still members of His family if we have truly committed our lives to Christ. When we sin we should immediately turn to God, confess our sin honestly, ask His forgiveness-and then turn from our sin. The Bible promises, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). http://www.billygraham.org/LFA_Article.asp?ArticleID=10

    • Q: Is it possible for a Christian to live without sinning?
      A: Nowhere does the Bible say that a Christian in this life will ever be completely perfect or will never sin. As long as we are on this earth, we will always struggle against temptation and sin. That is one reason Jesus taught His disciples to pray (in The Lord's Prayer), "Forgive us our sins ... And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" (Luke 11:4, Matthew 6:13). Sometimes we sin by our actions; sometimes by our motives. Often we sin not because of what we do, but because of what we fail to do. For example, we fail to love others or to forgive others or in other ways fail to do things we ought to do-and that is sin. (http://www.billygraham.org/LFA_Article.asp?ArticleID=70)

Why do Christians think that believers still sin?

There are three main reasons why Christianity teaches that believers still sin:

1. Not understanding the difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.
2. Misinterpreting Romans the 7th chapter.
3. Misinterpreting some verses in the New Testament of the Bible, such as I John 1:8-10 and I John 4:16-18.

Understanding the difference between the Old and New Covenants is the key to understanding the issue of sin

As were the Jews in the time of Paul, many religious people of our present time are ignorant of Yahweh's righteousness (Romans 10:3). They have no revelation of the New Covenant, meaning they retain an Old Covenant mentality about their relationship with Yahweh including the notion of sin. To have an Old (First) Covenant mentality is to see and understand only physical manifestations which are symbolic (Romans 1:19,20; Galatians 4:22-26; Hebrews 9:9,10). The purpose of physical manifestations is to make true worshipers have a New (Second) Covenant mentality, that is to understand spiritual principles of Yahweh, who is Spirit (John 4:24-25). The will of Yahweh is that the Messiah, through His death, burial and resurrection, "takes away the first to establish the second" (Hebrews 10:9; Jer 31:31). In other words, by the preaching of the true gospel, Yahshua makes us die to our earthly natural concepts about Yahweh Elohim and causes our soul to be born again (John 3:3-12) or to understand spiritual things (1 Corinthians 2:11-13).

Because sin is transgression of the Law, breaking even one of the 613 Mosaic (Old Covenant) laws was considered sin (James 2:10,11). As nobody (except Yahshua the Messiah) could keep that law completely, everyone sinned (Romans 3:23). Christians still believe that sin is transgression of the Ten Commandments and other laws of the Old Covenant, some of which they choose to keep. They fail to see that the Ten Commandments, Sabbath and other laws of the Old Covenant have been fulfilled by Yahshua, nailed to the cross (Col 2:14), and they are not valid under the New Covenant (Hebrews 7:12). Now, under the New Covenant we have a spiritual Law (Jeremiah 31:33, Ezekiel 36:26), the Law of Spirit of Life in Yahshua (Romans 8:1,2), as opposed to the Law of natural works (Mosaic Law). The New Covenant is Yahweh's attributes (not a list of "do"s and "don't"s) in the hearts of the recipients of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:4). Yahweh's Love (Romans 13:9,10) governs believers' souls from inside, causing them to please our heavenly Father or follow Spiritual Law (Ezekiel 36:27). Sin under the New Covenant is not to love and worship Yahweh in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:24), or not to do the only work our Creator now requires: believe in Yahshua (John 6:29), i.e., have faith that Yahweh is salvation. For example, sin is to practice carnal ways of worship, not believing that Yahshua has moved our works of righteousness out of the way (Ephesians 2:15, Col 2:14), so that we could love Yahweh the way He wants to be loved (by understanding His spiritual principles and manifesting this, or walking in the Spirit).

Under the New Covenant the Law is spiritual, which means that the operative condition for sin is a spiritual one. For example, under Mosaic Law, physical adultery was a sin. In this 4th Age of Yahweh's purpose, committing spiritual adultery is sin, of which physical adultery is a type and shadow because all physical things were created to manifest invisible or spiritual principles (Romans 1:19,20). Those who are born of Yahweh don't commit spiritual adultery, or don't lust after men's concepts and seducing doctrines about God: we are faithful to our husband Yahshua (to His truth revealed by the witnesses). As a reflection of our spiritual unity with Yahweh, we also don't commit physical adultery (which is a reflection of spiritual adultery). Physical adultery was punished by physical death under Mosaic Law, whereas spiritual adultery leads to more severe consequences - spiritual death or eternal damnation. Having the Holy Spirit does not mean that physical adultery is no longer wrong: physical adultery involves deceit and unfaithfulness; therefore, it is not compatible with Yahshua's attributes of love of the Truth and faithfulness. When we become the true recipients of the Holy Spirit, Yahshua is guiding our conscience and causing us to walk in His ways or please Him (Ezekiel 36:27), which is reflected in our behavior.

There are physical actions that have always shown an enmity to Spirit Law. These are the actions a person's conscience recognizes as wrong and the very actions often taken, even if the person does not want to do wrong, because of the influence by Satan and his demons that, being angels, are more powerful than us. When we are governed by Yahshua rather than Satan, we are able to have a clean conscience, to walk without sin, without disobedience to Yahweh because Yahweh Elohim (which is the spirit in Yahshua) created Satan and is more powerful than Satan and therefore frees us from Satan's influence over us forever. This is exactly why we need a Savior, so we will no longer be condemned in our conscience because of Satan's powerful influence, no longer a servant of Satan and sin, but rather, once saved, we are in bondage to Yahshua who is always obedient to Yahweh: in short we will no longer sin.

In this age, to sin is not to do something wrong in the flesh such as committing physical adultery, but to go against this Law of the Spirit of Life or our conscience which then manifests in the physical as proof of spiritual sin. When we are born again through faith in Yahshua the Messiah, Spirit Law governs our conscience from then on and we no longer sin in the flesh. Therefore, Paul writes, "whatsoever is not of faith is sin" (Romans 14:23). "Every sin that a man doeth is without the body" (I Cor 6:18). Because this Law of the Spirit is within us, the same action can be sin for one and not a sin for another (Romans 14:14, 22, 23) depending on the MOTIVATION and only Yahweh knows a man's heart. James writes, "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin." (James 4:17). The opposite is also true: to him that knows that something is wrong, and does it, to him it is sin (going against the conscience or spiritual self: his soul).

According to the Mosaic Law (the Old Covenant), there were two types of sin: intentional and unintentional. For despising the law of Moses, there was no sacrifice or forgiveness (Hebrews 10:28). For the sin committed by ignorance, a sacrifice could be provided (Leviticus 4:22-24). The Mosaic Law was fulfilled by Yahshua and taken away. But the principles remain because they are part of the eternal Law of the Spirit. So, the intentional sin would be to go against the Truth. For example, if someone is shown with the witnesses that water baptism is fulfilled by Yahshua, and if this person despises the truth and still decides that water baptism is necessary for salvation because of what tradition teaches, it is intentional sin. For this sin, there is no sacrifice remaining (Hebrews 10:26) because such a one has willfully rejected the gospel, failed to believe the report or to have faith in Yahshua, thereby providing no way for salvation. Another person may practice water baptism out of ignorance (unintentional sin), and when he hears the Truth, he repents or turns away from water baptism as a dead work of the Old Covenant (Hebrews 6:1,2). "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1st John 1:9). Whosoever is born of Yahweh doth not sin or DOES NOT GO AGAINST HIS CONSCIENCE OR FAITH. The Holy Spirit by the blood of Yahshua has cleansed our souls from lusts of the flesh or sin (I John 1:7). Intentionally or unintentionally, we don't worship Yahweh in the flesh and lie or other types of disobedience, after we have had revelation about Spirit and Truth (been born of Yahweh).

Correct understanding of Romans the 7th chapter

Before Pentecost, people were separated from Yahweh because of Adamic transgression. There was no understanding of Him (Psalms 14:1-3) or loving Him with all their hearts, minds and souls (Deut 5:29). Satanic Spirits incarnated in men would cause people to go against their consciences and sin in many different ways (Romans 7). Christians, not understanding that in Romans the 7th chapter Paul is describing the state of his soul BEFORE his revelation from Yahshua, teach that a believer has two natures and continues in sin. In Romans the 7th chapter, Paul does describe that a natural man (not a true believer) has two natures or laws. Before we receive the Holy Spirit, the Satanic Spirit or Mystery of Iniquity ("law of sin") rules our conscience and suppresses the "still small voice" of Yahweh (the Universal Spirit Law everyone is born with), thereby causing the soul to sin (please self). These two natures or laws are at war with each other. However, when the gospel is preached and a person receives the revelation of Yahshua, the Holy Spirit moves out the Satanic Spirit (which was shown by Yahshua in the flesh casting out demons from men - Luke 8:7-39). The Holy Spirit frees us from the law of sin, gives us a new heart or Yahweh's Love, thereby making us obedient to the law of the Spirit of life in Yahshua (Ezekiel 36:26,27). The Holy Spirit illuminates our conscience or soul with understanding of Yahweh's purpose and His Love; thereby we have a converted soul or we are born again, and our desire becomes to please Our Creator. As Peter wrote, "�even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward Yahweh,) by the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah" (I Peter 3:21).

The Mosaic Law, or the law of the Old Covenant, is a physical reflection of the Spiritual Law. It is also called "the law of sin and death," because it gave carnal people the examples of sinful behavior in the flesh, and under this law the penalty for sin was physical death. Paul writes in the beginning of the 8th chapter of Romans:

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Yahshua the Messiah, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Yahshua hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh (Romans 8:1-3).
Notice that "Now" is contrasted to "then", or Romans the 7th chapter describing Paul in the state of sin and condemnation under the Old Covenant. The law of the Spirit of life in Yahshua is WITHIN the believers. What the EXTERNAL (physical) Mosaic Law could not do (Hebrews 9:9, 10:1), the Law of Love within us does: it governs and perfects our conscience (Hebrews 10:14).

What about the verses in the epistles in the Bible which imply that the believers sin?

John writes, "If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death" (I John 5:16). When we read the letters of the Apostles, it is important to understand that there were different groups of people in the congregations the Apostles were writing to at the beginning of the age (like there are in today's world). There were people who had the Holy Spirit, like Paul (or were born of Yahweh), and there were people who have "gladly received the truth" (Matt 13:20) or heard the gospel, but did not have the Holy Spirit or understanding yet (Matt 13:23), or were carnal (not born of Yahweh). Paul writes:

And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in the Messiah. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?(1 Cor 3:1-3).
These people did sin: "Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of Yahweh: I speak this to your shame. (1 Cor 15:24)." These sins were manifested in different ways: following the Mosaic laws, committing sexual immorality, etc.

With this limited explanation, we can understand better the sayings of the apostles. John writes, "Whosoever is born of Yahweh doth not commit sin [DOES NOT GO AGAINST CONSCIENCE OR FAITH]; for His seed remaineth in him: and He cannot sin, because He is born of Yahweh" (I John 3:8,9). On the other hand, "If we say that we have no sin [BEFORE WE HAVE REVELATION OR ARE BORN OF YAHWEH], we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (I John 1:8-10).

Can people who have the Holy Spirit make mistakes?

It is possible that a person with the Holy Spirit will do something with the best intentions, and then realize that he made a mistake, that he caused somebody pain, or that what he said wasn't true. This realization can be made directly by the Holy Spirit from within as with Peter when he thought to baptize the Gentiles in water (Acts 10:47,48) and only afterwards the Holy Spirit brought to his remembrance that the TRUE baptism is by the Spirit and not by water (Acts 11:15,16). This realization can also be caused indirectly by the brethren (when Paul chastised Peter for hypocrisy, Galatians 2). In this case, the conscience will start pricking a believer, and he will ask Yahshua for forgiveness. However, this is not an intentional sin. James uses a different word for it, which translates as "fault" (James 5:16). When Peter asked, "Can any man forbid water?" in Acts 10:47, he simply did not know better; he was not going against the understanding that Yahweh is salvation, or going against his conscience. Yahshua promised that He will bring all things to our remembrance (John 14:26). He promised that He will cause them who believe to walk in His statutes (Ezekiel 36:27). So Peter (and we as well) have to be first in the state of not knowing (and making mistakes) before Yahshua can bring things to our remembrance (or reveal His truth). When we believe His words and His purpose which includes perfecting the sons through chastisement, we don't go against the Law of Spirit or our conscience. In other words, we grow in the Spirit by letting Him expose our faults, but we don't sin. We have to realize that whatever mistakes we're making are for our learning, our purification and our growth in the spirit. Unlike under the Old Covenant, it is not for death, but for Life. As children are growing up, they don't behave as adults, but they are perfect for the state and condition they are in. The same is in the Spirit: when people are born again, they may not be perfect in their understanding and behavior, but they are perfect children of the Father (1 John 3:1).

How does one become cleansed of sin and sin no more?

The only way to have righteousness in Yahweh's eyesight, or to live without sin, is not by good works but through faith in Yahshua (Ephesians 2:8,9) or knowledge of the Truth, because He is the Truth (John 14:6).

Then said Yahshua to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Yahshua answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:31-36)
This knowledge of the Truth comes by revelation from Our Creator through the means of preaching the TRUE GOSPEL of the death, burial and resurrection of Yahshua according to the Scriptures (I Cor 1:21; Romans 10:14-17; 1 Cor 15:1-4). These Scriptures quoted by Yahshua and Paul are not the writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John taught by Christianity as the gospel (which are the biography of Yahshua), but the writings of the Old Testament of the Bible (Luke 24:25-27, 44; 1 Cor 15:1-4). Clearly, the reason many Christians think they can still sin if they have the Holy Spirit is because they don't know the Truth as revealed by the Scriptures, and shown in visions to the prophets and the apostles; it is also presented on this website as a part of the vision given to Dr. Kinley by Yahshua in the end of this age. This Truth is that Yahshua the Messiah died to fulfill the Old Mosaic Law of physical ways of worship (which included water baptisms and suppers - Hebrews 9:10), as well as to make an end of sin (John 1:29; Romans 6: 6&14, 8:2; II Cor 5:21; Heb 9:26; IJohn 1:7, 3:5-9), and we are now under the grace and freedom of the Law of the Spirit of life (New Covenant). If people continue practicing "works of righteousness" (water baptism, Lord suppers, etc.), they are psychologically still under the Old Covenant or under the curse of the Law of sin and death (Galatians 3:10,13).

Yahshua the Messiah died for us so we can know the Truth, and be born again, and be free from sin. Yahweh rewards those who sincerely want to know Him: "�for he that cometh to Yahweh must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).
