 28C.   God's Standing Law Regarding Sinners

 


The world as we know is full of wickedness and evil works. All men are guilty of committing sin in the sight of God. Not that men inherited Adam's sin, but everyone have learned to ignore and defy the will of God.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Rom:3:23, KJV)   

28.C1  What is God's standing law regarding sinners?

The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin. (Dt:24:16, KJV)

God's righteousness regarding sinners is manifested in His standing law.  Everyone shall be put to death for his own sin.

28.C2   How does God validate his law on sinners?  

"Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine; the soul who sins shall die. (Ez:18:4, NKJV)

God affirm that the soul who sins shall die. The sinner must pay for his sins;  he is accountable to die as a punishment for his sins. 

"But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'' (Rv:21:8, NKJV)

As a result, man is condemned to experience death in the lake of fire, which is the second death;

28.C3   How was the Law on Sinners clarified?

 In Genesis 18:25, it is written:

"Far be it from you to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked. So that the righteous should be as the wicked, far be it from you!  Shall not the Judge of all earth do right?" (NKJV)

The same verse in the New International Version for clarity:

"Far be it from you to do such a thing -- to kill the righteous like the wicked ,  treating the righteous and the wicked alike.  Far be it from you!  Will not the judge of all earth do right?" (NIV)

God's divine justice requires that the righteous should not die as the wicked.

___________

God's standing Law on the sinners requires that "everyman shall be put to death for his own sin.(Dt:24:16:)Thus, all men having all sinned are condemned to die the second death in the lake of fire.  But, God's divine justice also requires that the righteous should not die as the wicked. How then can man be righteous in the sight of God and be saved to die the second death despite his inherent weaknesses?
