• The Distortion of Lawlessness Media Resource by

    Romans 6:1-2

    Christians must make ethical decisions that are in accord with God’s will. The difficulty comes because not every ethical situation in life has an easy solution. There are so many factors and contingencies that make each situation unique. But what if there was a one-size-fits-all solution to any and every problem we could possibly face—an over-arching principle that we can use to navigate through life’s difficult situations? There are some who believe there is one such principle. In this message, Dr. Sproul explains that, as attractive as it may sound, that principle is not as biblical as many like to … View Resource

    Romans 6:1-4

    “If God forgives by grace, why should I not sin?” This question has resurfaced in various forms since the time of Paul.

Indeed, we are delivered not only from the guilt and penalty of sin in justification, but also sin’s dominion, presence, and power in sanctification, which entails becoming “slaves to righteousness” (Rom. 6:19). Thus, we move from the standing of justification by imputed righteousness to the renewed life of sanctification by transformational righteousness. Paul opens up sanctification at length in Romans 6, 7, and 8, which concern us in this and the next two lessons. In this message from Romans … View Resource

    Romans 6:5-14

    The sixth chapter of Paul’s letter to the Romans deals with the important topic of the Christian’s relationship with sin in light of God’s grace. In the previous lesson, Dr. Ferguson presented two components of Paul’s response to the challenge of antinomianism. In this lesson, Dr. Ferguson will continue to explore Paul’s reaction to this issue by examining Paul’s exposition, implication, and exhortation to the church in Romans 6. For those in Rome and for each of us today, Paul’s message is clear: do not allow sin to reign any longer, but live a new life as someone who belongs … View Resource
