Beware of sin

Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.

So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” Cain’s anger kept him from ruling over sin and he murdered his brother Able causing God to severly punish him.

Sin is a serious danger, not something laughable or funny. Yet in our day it seems that most don’t look at it in that way. It lays at the door of each one of us, and as the Lord warned “its desire is for you”. Peter says it like this: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (I Pet.5:8).

Sin needs to be identified. It runs rampant and has been accepted by far to many of our citizens. The time has come to return to righteousness as described in the scriptures, before sin destroys our nation.
