Occasional Struggle Vs. Habitual Sin

Released November 16, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Where is the line drawn between a true Christian who occasionally battles a particular sin versus a religiously Christianized person who is bound in their habitual sin? One is born again, one isn’t. Both think that they are. Yet, the Scripture speaks plainly about our victory over sin being one of the clearest evidences of true salvation. What should we make of those who profess Jesus as Lord, but continue to live in unbroken patterns of sin?   In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff walks us through First John chapter two as he shares his won testimony about being deceived concerning his own sin. God is merciful and will not leave us unchallenged about this area. He doesn’t want to terrify us about sin, He wants to fully deliver us from its power. This podcast episode takes a hard-hitting look at the spirit of the age which actually tries to make a place for unrepentant sin to continue in the lives of those who say they belong to Jesus.   Topics: sin, victory, deception, pet-sins, habitual sin, stubborn sins, deliverance, freedom, power   Additional resources are available at TransformingTruth.org
