First Chapter



Sin is an inward spiritual attitude of rebellion towards God, which is expressed in outward acts of disobedience. We are all sinners in this way, and by our sinful lives we rob God of the glory due to Him. Sin is followed by three main consequences: first, inward spiritual death, or alienation from God; second, the physical death of the body; third, final and eternal banishment from the presence of God to a place of darkness and torment. Christ came to save us from our sins. Himself without sin, He took our sins upon Him, died in our place, and rose again from the dead, that we might be forgiven and receive eternal life.

Memory work: Rom. 6:23

A. SIN AND ITS CONSEQUENCES 1. For what purpose were all things created? (Rev. 4: 11) 2. Write down 3 things which God is worthy to receive (Rev. 4:11) 3. In what way have all men sinned? (Rom. 3:23) 4. When men turned away from God, what were the first two sins that they committed? (Rom.1:21 ) 5. What were the results of this? (Rom. 1:21) (1) In man's mind? (2) In man's heart? 6.

Write down 13 evil things which come out of the human heart (Mark 7:21, 22) 9. If we are able to do something good, and we do not do it, what does God call that? (Jam. 4:17) 10. If we say we have no sin, what are we doing to ourselves? (I John 1:8) 11. If we say that we have not sinned, what are we doing to God? (I John 1:10) 12. What consequence has sin brought upon all men? (Rom. 5:12; 6:23; Jam. 1:15) 13. What is the final end of all unrepentant sinners? (Matt. 25:41 Rev. 20:12-15) 14. Write down eight different kinds of people who will go to the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8)

B. THE PURPOSE OF CHRIST'S DEATH AND RESURRECTION 15. For what purpose did Christ come into the world? (1 Tim. 1:15) 16. Whom did Christ call, and whom did He receive? (Matt. 9:13 Luke 15:2) 17. Did Christ Himself commit any sins? (Heb. 4:15 1 Pet. 2:22) 18. What did Christ bear for us on the cross? (I Pet. 2:24) 19. For what purpose did Christ die on the cross? (I Pet. 3:18) 20. What 3 facts about Christ did Paul teach as the gospel? (I Cor. 15:3, 4) 21. Seeing that Christ is now alive evermore, what is He able to do for those who come to Him? (Heb. 7:25) 22.

(The numbers in the left-hand margin correspond to the numbers of the correct answers on the previous page) 1-4. Basically, man's sin is his failure to fulfill his God-given function. Man was created to glorify God. "He is the image and glory of God" (I Cor. 11:7). Any behavior of man that fails to glorify God is sinful. 3. "Come short of the glory of God." The picture is taken from an arrow shot at a mark, but falling short of it. The "mark" of man's existence is "the glory of God." But all have fallen short of this mark. (Compare Phil. 3:14.) 6-8. All these Scriptures speak about "the heart" generally. They describe the inward condition of all fallen humanity, without any exceptions. 8. Not all these sins here mentioned are actually committed by all men. But the "seeds" of all these sins are found in every heart. Character and circumstances, combined, decide which of these "seeds" will actually bring forth the corresponding actions in any individual life. 9. Many people are guilty not so much for what they "commit" as for what they "omit". In Matt. 25:3, 25, 45, the foolish virgins, the unfaithful steward, and the "goat" nations are all condemned for what they did not do. 13. We must distinguish 2 different places: (1) "Hell" (Hebrew "sheol"; Greek "hades"); a place of confinement for departed souls, prior to resurrection and judgment (Luke 16:23). (2) "Gehenna" or "the lake of fire": a place of final, unending punishment for the wicked, after resurrection and judgment (Rev. 20:12-15). 14. Note the first 2 classes of the condemned: the "fearful" and the "unbelieving." How many "religious" people are included? 18. "Now once in the end of the world hath he (Christ) appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself" (Heb. 9:26). By the sacrifices of the law of Moses sin was temporarily "covered" (See Heb. 10:1-4). By the death of Christ sin was finally "put away" (See Heb. 10:11-18). 19. Unforgiven sin is the great barrier between God and man (Is. 59:2). When sin was put away by Christ on the cross, the way was opened for man to come back to God. Any barriers that now remain are on man's side, not on God's. 20. "Faith" is built on "fact." The "gospel" is based on these 3 simple, historical facts. 21. "To the uttermost" includes every need of every sinner in time and eternity. Christ is sufficient for all.

    Its the Bible

    Certain literary works should require no review and this is one of them. Others would include works by Shakespeare, Twain, Dumas, etc.

    Almost as good as Rhema

    If you can't attend Rhema then take this book and study it. It will match exactly what the Bible states.

    study your bible/ adults

    Many people say I'm mature for my age. I have my life planned out (do missionary work own my own buisness) I have been looking for a book like this. I am confused the Bible to me is less confusing than this. I am not old enough to do many things, but I am different from most of my family,and probally different from most of you, but I enjoy it and I think you should take the time to read at least 1 chapter.(if you are not in colledge yet and you don't get it don't feel bad)
