It is not too popular to talk about sin today, but it is a huge topic in the Bible. This means that the topic of sin is mentioned in one way or another, on average, nearly two times per page through the entire New Testament.
We would neglect such an important topic at our peril. The New Testament mentions several harmful consequences that come from willful sin in the life of a Christian. Christians should pray daily for forgiveness of sins Matthew ; 1 John , not to gain justification again and again, but to restore our personal fellowship with God that has been hindered by sin.
Christian ethics is not concerned only with our right and wrong actions. We are complex people, and life itself is complex. But at other times, we are able to ponder a decision at some length. When we have more time to ponder a decision, we can consider as many as nine possible sources of information and guidance: 1 the Bible, 2 knowledge of the facts of the situation, 3 knowledge of ourselves, 4 advice from others, 5 changed circumstances, 6 our consciences, 7 our hearts, 8 our human spirits, and 9 guidance from the Holy Spirit.
We need wisdom from God in order to evaluate these factors rightly in making a decision.
