Lists – Five Catastrophic Sins – Romans Ch. 1

Romans 1:21-32 identifies five catastrophic sins:

  1. Sin is having some knowledge of God, but not praising Him as God or thanking Him. (v.21)
  2. Sin is exchanging the truth of God for a lie. (v.25)
  3. Sin is worshipping (loving and valuing) what God created more than, or instead of, God Himself. (v.25)
  4. Sin is not retaining God in our knowledge (in what shapes who we are and what we do). (v.28)
  5. Sin is knowing the result of doing wrong and doing it anyway, and approving others who do it. (v.32)     (wrong – that which opposes God’s character, will, and wisdom)
