FLEE from sin

 

Psalm 143:9

King James Version

9 Deliver me, 

O Lord, 

from mine enemies: 

I flee unto thee to hide me.


What is sin?

Why must we flee from it?

Who can help us?

As always, Scripture -- the WORD of GOD -- is my only reference.


But, what kind of evil must we flee from?

Here's a laundry list of some sins:

1 Corinthians 10:14

King James Version

14 Wherefore, 

my dearly beloved, 

flee from idolatry.


2 Timothy 2:22

King James Version

22 Flee also youthful lusts

but follow righteousness, 

faith, 

charity, 

peace, 

with them that call on the Lord 

out of a pure heart.


1 Corinthians 6:18

King James Version

18 Flee fornication

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; 

but he that committeth fornication 

sinneth against his own body.


Romans 16:17

King James Version

17 Now I beseech you, 

brethren, 

mark them which cause divisions and offences 

contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; 

and avoid them.


Matthew 5:28

King James Version

28 But I say unto you, 

That whosoever looketh on a woman 

to lust after her 

hath committed adultery with her already 

in his heart.


1 Peter 2:11

King James Version

11 Dearly beloved, 

I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, 

abstain from fleshly lusts, 

which war against the soul;


1 Timothy 6:9

King James Version

9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation 

and a snare, 

and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, 

which drown men in destruction and perdition.


1 Corinthians 6:9-10

King James Version

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God

Be not deceived: 

neither fornicators, 

nor idolaters, 

nor adulterers, 

nor effeminate, 

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, 

nor covetous, 

nor drunkards, 

nor revilers, 

nor extortioners, 

shall inherit the kingdom of God.


Galatians 5:19-21

King James Version

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest

which are these; 

Adultery, 

fornication, 

uncleanness, 

lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, 

witchcraft, 

hatred, 

variance, 

emulations, 

wrath, 

strife, 

seditions, 

heresies,

21 Envyings, 

murders, 

drunkenness, 

revellings

and such like: 

of the which I tell you before, 

as I have also told you in time past, 

that they which do such things 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


Ephesians 5:3

King James Version

3 But fornication, 

and all uncleanness, 

or covetousness, 

let it not be once named among you, 

as becometh saints;


1 Corinthians 5:1

King James Version

5 It is reported commonly 

that there is fornication among you, 

and such fornication as is not so much as named 

among the Gentiles, 

that one should have his father's wife.


James 4:4

King James Version

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, 

know ye not that the friendship of the world 

is enmity with God

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world 

is the enemy of God.


James 4:17

King James Version

17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, 

and doeth it not, 

to him it is sin.


Hebrews 13:4

King James Version

4 Marriage is honourable in all, 

and the bed undefiled: 

but whoremongers and adulterers 

God will judge.


Colossians 3:5

King James Version

5 Mortify therefore your members 

which are upon the earth; 

fornication, 

uncleanness, 

inordinate affection,

evil concupiscence, 

and covetousness, 

which is idolatry:


Romans 7:23

King James Version

23 But I see another law in my members, 

warring against the law of my mind, 

and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin 

which is in my members.


Luke 8:13

King James Version

13 They on the rock are they, 

which, 

when they hear, 

receive the word with joy; 

and these have no root, 

which for a while believe, 

and in time of temptation fall away.


Matthew 7:21-23

King James Version

21 Not every one that saith unto me, 

Lord, Lord, 

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, 

Lord, Lord, 

have we not prophesied in thy name? 

and in thy name have cast out devils? 

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, 

I never knew you: 

depart from me, 

ye that work iniquity.


FLEE from sin.

Run, like the devil is after you.

For he is.

And since it's a laundry list, we need washing.

The next post will tell us how to GUARD against sin.
