Why is it that sin can be so hard to turn our backs to at times?

Why is it that sin can be so hard to turn our back on at times?

1. In our “overview” material on Jurisdictions under “The Individual” we explain how the human nature has two major weak points. We tend to drift toward these weak areas: 1. Self-Serving and 2. Self-Deceiving.  We often lean or prefer serving ourselves and others rather than God. If we want something that is morally wrong, we can very effectively deceive ourselves by rationalizing or justifying what we want. Sin comes easy to us because of these two natural, inborn weaknesses found in our human nature. We must have “a serious” heart for God (Matt. 22:37) and lots of God’s grace in order to walk away from sin especially when we are often pulled by one or both of these weaknesses. We have to fight in the power of the Holy Spirit against our own flesh in order to live in full surrender to Christ. (Rom 7:14-25; 8:1-16; Luke 9:23; John 14:15-18)
