Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #70

Scripture: Hosea 10:9-13

Based on a list of sins which the great evangelist Charles G. Finney gave in his classic sermon titled "Break Up Your Fallow Ground: It is Time to Seek the Lord", we began pinpointing some of the sins which we as the church need to confess and repent of. This week, we are continuing this series by addressing the next three sins on our list.

I. The first sin we will address today is levity. Levity is defined as "lightness of mind, character, or behavior; a lack of appropriate seriousness or earnestness." The Bible also says in Ephesians 5:4, "Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks." God will rather for us to give thanks to Him than to do a whole lot of foolish talking.

II. The second sin we will address today is the awful sin of lying. I am here to tell you that nothing will bring you down and nothing will destroy your relationships with other people faster than lying. The Bible says in Proverbs 12:22, "Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight."

III. The third sin we will address today is the terrible sin of hypocrisy. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 15:7-8, "Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me."
