Dear God, You Don’t Cause Pain But Did You Cause Sin?

1 John 3:8-9 (KJV) tells us that:

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

The bible clearly tells us that the source of sin is the Devil because he is the one that sinned from the beginning.

It also tells us in this same passage that when you are a child of God you CANNOT sin because you are born of God.

Let us look at a couple of texts that clearly answer this question.

1 John 5:17 (KJV)

All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

Psalm 145:17 (KJV)

The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

Romans 9:14 (KJV)

What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

Unrighteousness is sin.

God is righteous.

There is therefore no unrighteousness or sin with God.

In fact …

1 John 4:7-8 (KJV)

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Malachi 3:6 (KJV)

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Romans 13:10 (KJV)

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Love comes from God.

Furthermore, God IS love.  

God does not change.

God therefore DID NOT, COULD NOT HAVE and WILL NEVER cause sin.

Indeed the bible tells us how sin started.

Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV)

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Ezekiel 28:41-18 (KJV)

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Sin started with Lucifer, who became Satan. But, praise God, it will end with Jesus!

1 John 3:5,8 (KJV)

And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Jesus will take away sin from the universe and there will be a time when sin and all of its consequences will be no more.

Revelation 21:1-4

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

I want to be there.

I long to be there…

… with you.
