How can I know if something is a sin?

This question can be broken into two parts. Let’s start with the easier one. There are things which the Bible specifically declares as sins. Take a moment to read through the following passages: Proverbs 6:16-19, Galatians 5:19-21, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Done? No, really. Go read them. I’ll wait.

Okay, these verses very clearly list actions which God views as sin. There can be no doubt as to God’s view on, say, murder, lying, stealing, etc. But where it gets more difficult is where the Bible isn’t black and white, as in the above verses. While the Scriptures may not have a “thou shalt not” next to everything that might make you wonder if it is a sin, there are definitely principles available to help measure our choices against.

Ask a Different Question

First, flip the question around. Instead of asking if something is a sin, ask this: Is it good? and Is it profitable? (Ephesians 4:29) If you’re fumbling to find a reason to justify why you want to do what you want to do, then perhaps it is better left undone. Our days here are few, and our time is precious—too precious to be wasted on desires that have no purpose.

You may see this second point coming. Yes, it’s obvious, but still very important:Pray about it. Ask God if He can use this activity or desire for His glory (1 Corinthians 10:31). Again, if you are finding yourself questioning how this thing could be profitable to yourself, much less how it could bring glory to God, perhaps it is best to give it up.

As believers, we have been bought with a price, we are no longer our own; our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). We should strive to bring honor to God with how we behave with our bodies and our choices.

Thinking of Others

Next, ask this, “How will my actions affect my family or friends?” Is the particular thing you are wrestling with harmful to you personally? Maybe you’re not convicted that it’s sinful, and you truly mean to do it for the glory of God. But will it cause someone else to stumble in their walk with Him? God wants us to do our best to make sure our actions do not cause other believers to stumble (Romans 14:21;15:1).

"Well, you’ve basically said that if I think on something enough, I can come to the conclusion that I can’t do anything!"

That may be your concluding thought after reading this article, and I am very sorry if you have that impression! But if you take nothing else away, please remember this major point:

Nothing—no habit, no recreation, no goals—should be allowed to havecontrol over your life.

We have given that control to Christ. First Corinthians 6:12 says, “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.” Your walk with Christ is not an act of following a rule book; it is striving to more like Jesus and helping your fellow believers along the way.

Put your questions of “is this a sin?” through the filter of “would this be pleasing to Christ?” instead of trying to see where all the fences have been put up. Don’t focus on the limitations of what you can and cannot get away with, but rather see every decision as an opportunity to live your life in a way that Jesus would.

On this day in music history: January 29, 1969 - “Filles De Kilimanjaro”, the thirty-second studio album by Miles Davis is released. Produced by Teo Macero, it is recorded at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City from June 19 - 21, September 24, 1968. The album marks the beginning of yet another transitional period for Davis’ music, providing the bridge from his more acoustic based jazz to his “electric period”. Featuring musicians such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, and Tony Williams providing musical support, Davis will have Hancock, Corea and Carter playing electric piano and electric bass on selected cuts, in spite of their initial resistance in doing so. The album’s striking cover artwork features Davis’ second wife Betty Mabry Davis (for whom the track “Mademoiselle Mabry” is written for and dedicated to). Though their marriage will be short lived, the second Mrs. Davis will prove to have a profound effect on Miles and his music from this point and in the future. “Filles De Kilimanjaro” will not chart on the Billboard Top 200.

  • 4:How many people do you think you met because of cosplaying?

A LOT, like i honestly probably wouldn’t know anyone. It was all because monochrometea invited me to be in a Sailor moon group that i met so many people. I’ve also met friends like dildofagginz at cons and stufflol

21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves
  • Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
  • Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
  • Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
  • Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
  • Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
  • Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
  • Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
  • Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
  • Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
  • Camille, 56:Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
  • Jackson, 57:No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
  • Vicki, 47:You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
  • Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.

  • Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
  • Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
  • Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
  • Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
  • Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
  • Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
