The Gospel on Sin
14-16 Feb 2008

  • Intro

    Sin has always been a 'dirty' word

    For some it implies hidden pleasures, evokes longing, titillating the senses.

    At the same time polite society shuns it for its accusatory stance. Are we that bad that we deserve to be labelled sinners? “Is there not good in every human being?” is the mantra of today's world, even after Enron and Anderson.

    What's the Christian view on all this?

    More importantly, where is the Christian in all this? Does the church need to re-examine itself especially in its evangelism and edification? By definition Christians do not delight in sin. But do Christians deny it? Certainly in the way some Christians seem to avoid it in their dealing with polite society, you'd be forgiven for thinking that sin has gone out of fashion even for Christians. Or perhaps even in the way sin is seen to be a matter peripheral to the heart of gospel faith, even here perhaps do we see the tell-tale shape of Christianity in the 21st century?

    Just how central is an understanding of sin to a faithful understanding of the gospel?

    TTC 2008 brings Christians like yourself and others together to think through this theological issue under God's Word. It promises to be 3 days of warm fellowship, good food, thoughtful prayer, and an equipping of the mind for faithful ministry.
