Sin is a symptom and not the disease.

Sin is a slippery stone and getting a handle on it is difficult.  It's easier to talk about that it is to deal with.

Two of the biggest problems with sin center on the fact that some people deny it exists, and others treat it like it's the disease rather than a symptom of the disease.

You live in a moral universe that takes a position on the choices you make.  When you break the laws governing the moral universe, you commit sin.  You would have to be blind, deaf, and stupid to not figure out that sin exists, is out of control, and is destroying the lives of millions of people.

Some people want to tell you there is no such thing as sin.  That is as intelligent as saying you don't have a heart attack when you have crushing chest pain, you are short of breath with beads of sweat on your forehead, and your EKG is seriously abnormal.  It doesn't matter how much you protest, you are still having a heart attack, and if you don't do anything to treat it, you will probably die.

If you don't think there is sin in the world, you need to wake up and face reality.

The second trap is treating sin as the disease rather than a symptom of an underlying disease.  This is the recipe for frustration and failure.  These people attack the mountain of sin that forms the landscape of their life.  They try every trick in the book to stop sinning, but without success.

They believe that if they can just get rid of the sin, they will be ok.  But no matter how hard they try to clean up their life, they always fail.  They are trying to cure the disease by making the symptoms go away.  They are doing things backwards, and it will not work.  Even if they clean up their life and commit fewer sins, they are only suppressing the symptoms of an underlying fatal affliction.  What they are doing is dangerous and will not solve their problem.  Sin is a symptom of an underlying problem, and it will not go away until you solve the problem that causes it.

If you want to break free from the maze of sin, you must take the cure.  The only cure is to be born spiritually and have a relationship with God based on love.  When that happens, God gives you a new mind and heart.  He gives you an entirely new way of thinking and living.

God's love makes you into a new person.  It knocks the wind out of your sin sails and sets you free.
