TITLE: YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD FOR YOUR SINS
DATE: WEDNESDAY, 8TH DECEMBER, 2021
KEY VERSE: PSALM 51: 3
For I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me.
The things you do convict you and disturb you. You are accountable for them. You acted it out by your willpower. You exercised your willpower wrongly to do evil, even to speak evil and to abuse God. A woman once called me and said, “I am having blasphemous thoughts in me against God. I do not know what to do. These thoughts keep coming. What should I do?” I said, “Those thoughts are not coming from you, but from Satan. God does not count them as sins against you because you have not accepted them. You are not guilty because those thoughts are not from you. Satan only wants you to accept them.”
If you start accepting and liking them, then sin comes in because you are using your willpower. If you use your willpower willingly to commit immorality, by accepting, entertaining and having pleasure in immoral thoughts or pictures that Satan flash across your mind, rather than rejecting and refusing them, then you are a sinner and you are responsible for your action. As a believer, God has given you the power to cast down evil imaginations and take every evil thought captive to the obedience of Christ. You have the willpower to reject ungodly thoughts and think good thoughts that glorify God.
The child is polluted right from the womb because he is the son of Adam. He inherited it from Adam. The blood is already contaminated with sin, such that when the child grows up, he commits the actual sin. He starts manifesting sinful nature which is inherited as a child of Adam. As a child, he has not committed any actual sin and is therefore not accountable. Hence if a child dies, he goes to Paradise because he has not committed any sin known to him. His conscience does not register anything at that age. After that period which God knows, he starts feeling guilty, at that time he is accountable. If you know what you are not supposed to do and you do it, then you are accountable for it.
