Spiritual Salvation Is Not Freedom To Sin

Spiritual salvation is not freedom to sin. Yes, there’s a big confusion over freedom and/or salvation among religions today. Sad but true. Many people are getting the wrong vibes that it’s okay to sin because Yahshua the Messiah already paid for the penalty of our sin. Yes, there’s no denying that He died and ransomed us all from the bondages and the curses of sin, but it doesn’t mean that people have to continue sinning after His sacrificial death and after His resurrection! It is our hope and prayer this admonition will help you find true righteousness in today’s mad world and confused society. As always, we will let the Bible interpret itself as we ask Yahweh’s Holy Spirit to help us and to guide us preach this true and faithful heavenly message.

Our dear brethren in faith…In countering the Galatian heresy, the apostle Paul sometimes refers to Christian freedom. But the freedom he describes differs so greatly from the way his words are commonly interpreted today. Paul’s reasoning here regarding grace, law, justification and freedom has been so twisted out of context today. For example, the popular view of freedom today, especially in Western society, is that individuals should be free to live as they please. Many religious people mistakenly read that concept of freedom into Galatians. But such an idea was totally foreign to Paul—and to the authorities and society of Paul’s day.

The government of the Roman Empire was a dictatorship under the authority of the emperor. Relatively few people possessed Roman citizenship with its associated legal rights. Most of the population belonged to two other classes of people: free non-citizens and slaves. From these came most of Christian converts. Paul contrasts the free (non-enslaved) people with enslaved people to illustrate an important truth.

Those who are justified by the death of Yahshua are free from the condemnation to death earned by past sins. Those not justified are not free from that condemnation. As unforgiven sinners, they remain like criminals sentenced to death and detained in bondage (as on death row) awaiting execution at the time of Yahweh’s final judgment.

Paul appeals to Christians to untangle themselves from—live free from—this world’s bigoted class distinctions. He does this because, for the Church, “there is neither Jew nor Greek (gentile), there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yahshua” (Galatians 3:28).

However, he never represents this freedom as a release from the law of Yahweh that defines the sins that are so common in the world. He does not point out that Yahshua Messiah “gave Himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil age” (Galatians 1:4).

Yahshua Messiah frees us from the condemnation that we bring on ourselves by participating in the evils of our present society, not from the authority of Yahweh’s law! Paul clarified Yahweh has “condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit” (Romans 8:3-4).

The apostle Paul consistently contrasts sin that reflects the works of the flesh to righteous conduct that reflects the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:19-23). The reason we need Yahweh’s Spirit is so we can perform what the law teaches. The Holy Spirit opens our minds to understand the true intent of the ways of Yahweh. We then must grow in holy character by diligently walking in Elohim’s way.

Be wary of the popular but satanic teachings of the many religious church leaders in the pulpits today. They are not helping you learn how to achieve true spiritual salvation because teaching “lawlessness” is not the Gospel that was taught by the apostle Paul in his days. Our faith must be accompanied by our sacred obedience to Yahweh’s Spiritual Law—the Ten Commandments. Read about these holy commands here.

Yes, spiritual salvation is not freedom to sin! You and I can lose our salvation if we’re not careful! Read about it here. We have to fight the good fight until the very end (Matthew 24:13). We have to repent of sin and continue to be always obedient to Yahweh or we will perish forever. Read about it here.

In closing, may you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear for these loving and faithful truths. May Almighty Yahweh bless you and protect you, especially those who are not just hearers but doers of His Word (Bible). Help us spread love, truth, faith and hope! We humbly ask and pray all these to our heavenly Father Yahweh in the name of His Son, our Savior Yahshua who is the Master and King now, always, and forever. Halleluyah, Shalom!

  1. Thank you for sharing your truths and the words of the Lord with us. Have a blessed day!
    Sending you lots of love and gratitude, Jaime

  2. I agree that there are many misconceptions about what freedom in Christ is. Once I became a Christian, I no longer felt okay with my sin and started to live my life differently because of the Holy Spirit. It was a change from the inside out.

  3. I definitely agree that many of the current teachings are confusing on salvation and sin. There are so many who make zero attempt to live a life that’s pleasing to God and instead just believe He will forgive them. They don’t even try to shine their ” light” for others to see the goodness of God.

  4. You are always so thorough in your teachings, and I appreciate that. I believe that as a Christian, I want to do right, and not follow the world, since I have the Holy Spirit leading me.
