American radio host and author Dr. Michael L. Brown talks about the conservative topic of sin, the aftermath of sin and how can we avoid it?
Dr. Michael Brown
In the recent episode of getting Real with Ron Cantor, guest Dr. Michael Brown sits down to talk about a very sensitive topic. He talked about how people, even well-known Christian personalities, easily fall into sinning. The simple explanation about it is because grace can be abused by those who have received it.
“Grace by its very nature can be abused… That’s why we always must walk in the fear of the Lord,” Dr. Michael said. “That’s why the grace of God is not an excuse for sin rather it’s empowerment to live above sin.”
He then continued to reference verses in Titus to emphasize that grace teaches us to say no to ungodliness.
“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age.” – Titus 2:11-12
Aftermath of sin
Every sin has a penalty that every sinner has to pay. To turn away from the temptation, it is helpful to always remember the aftermath of that sin. Remember how would that sin affect your family, your ministry, and even your own life.
“See the penalty and fruit of sin now before you commit to sin and you’ll never walk that thing out,” he emphasized.
How to avoid sinning?
When asked how could one avoid sinning, Dr. Michael gave a short yet profound answer: intimacy with the Lord.
”When you’re really meeting with the Lord, when you’re intimate with Him, when you’re loving Jesus, you’re just not gonna be able to live that double life.”
