The Root of the Problem: Chapter 14 – Difficult Circumstances (Excerpt)

The Root of the Problem (cover)Teaching that difficult circumstances are no excuse for sin does not make one insensitive about the plight of others. It does not indicate a lack of concern for those with a troubled life. “But you don’t know what my life is like!” That may be true. (Then again, you don’t know what my life is like either – it works both ways.) But we do know what the word of God says.

“Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God” (Romans 6:11-13).

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

We are to put away sin. If we fail to do so, we will receive the wages that are due us for our sin. There is no exception to this on account of our circumstances. (p. 85-86)
