  • COLUMN: With God's help, we can defeat sin

    “A life without sin.” How does that sound to you? Would you like to live without sin? Is it really possible? John speaks to this subject when he says, “so that you may not sin.” (I John 2:1)

    I think there are many who do not want to live a life without sin and some even deny its existence. Those people may think it is impossible or they may want to engage in its fleeting pleasures. How could this be? Hebrews 11:25 does speak of “the passing pleasures of sin.” But God says over and over in his word that sin is displeasing to him.
