The scriptures are extremely clear that as Christians we have been set free from sin. We no longer live under the bondage of sin.
But the truth is we all mess up occasionally (or frequently if you are like me!) in some way or another.
So what are the biggest reasons Christians still sin and how can we be free from sin?
That’s the topic of today’s podcast. I hope you enjoy it.

What is sin?
Before we discussed the 3 biggest reasons we addressed the question “what is sin?”
The best resource if you want to look at this in more depth is the “Romans” series on the “The Grace Course”
The 3 Biggest Reasons Christians Still Sin & How You Can Be Free From Them
The biggest reasons as discussed in the podcast are:
- The Sinful Nature
- A False Identity
As I mentioned in the podcast there are some great resources on this site which will help with some of these things. I highly recommend you start by downloading my free eBook, “You Do Not Have A Sinful Nature”.
