Transgression and Iniquity Part 1

Transgression and Iniquity

Transgression and Iniquity

It was put on my mind to do a series on Transgression and Iniquity for thorough understanding.

It’s important to grasp the nature of it, and why we need to avoid it at all cost. This is a subject [title wise] not really deeply understood by most Christians.  This is why we need to take a careful study of it. Therefore, it may be broken up into two or three parts, so bare with us.

Let’s begin…

Even in my mind it can make perfect sense that Jesus would do it all for us. God would look down from Heaven and say “this man cannot do it, I must send my Son to do it all for them.” We could get away with thinking like this; that is until we read otherwise.

When we see the people in the Bible who have fallen out of good standings with God, there are a few things attached to their story. Those things are sin, iniquity, transgression, and disobedience. Before man was created of the dust of the earth, sin had already been in existence.

Transgression and Iniquity

In the book of Ezekiel, chapter 28, we will learn how Satan fell from grace. It says at verses fifteen (15) that Satan was perfect in all his ways from the day he was created, until iniquity was found in him.

Once iniquity was found in Satan, he was thrown out of Heaven and given an allotted time before he’d be put in eternal punishment. The first man created was Adam and disobedience and sin was found in him also. As Romans chapter five notes, by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin.

Sin: Transgression and Iniquity

The punishment waiting for Satan and his followers is an eternal death. When there is sin, there following it will be death. Jesus came to deliver mankind from the eternal death. As I read the history of the children of Israel in the Chronicles of their kings, the kings that did well were those who stayed far from iniquity and sin.

While those who hated God had enough transgressions to go around the world twice. The big question for people who are not well versed in the Bible is what does transgression and iniquity or sin mean? We can find this out right now!

Transgression and Iniquity
Did He?

1st John 3

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

John writes that whoever commits sin also transgresses the law because sin is the transgression of the law. To transgress is to break or go beyond the bounds of the law!

If sinning is breaking the law, it becomes expedient we learn which law we are speaking of. This is important because the reality is that there are two sets of laws; the laws pertaining to morality (house rules), and the laws pertaining to breaking the “house rules.”

The laws pertaining to breaking the “house rules” are known as the laws of animal sacrifice. This law is fixed on showing us that once a law was broken or transgressed, the penalty for transgressing is death.
