Since Grace, Why Not Sin?
Topic: Romans Passage: Romans 6:1–6:7
The powerful effect of the gospel:
- We are dead to sin.
- We are free from sin.
Dead to sin does not mean that we no longer want to sin.
Dead to sin does not mean that sin cannot still have power or influence over us.
Dead to sin does not refer to some slow move away from sin.
Dead to sin does not refer to some renouncing of sin nor does it refer to being pardoned and forgiven for sin.
“Dead to sin” means that when you are saved by God, you are no longer under the reign and ruling power of sin.
We are free from sin (6:7)
Know what is true about you.
Beware of antinomianism!
Antinomian - One who holds that under the gospel dispensation of grace the moral law is of no use or obligation because faith alone is necessary to salvation.
