Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #73

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 the sin of greed. The Bible says in Luke 12:15: "He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live." Greed is defined as "an excessive or reprehensible desire to acquire." 

II. The second sin we will address today is the sin of gluttony. Now, I know we don't like to talk about this sin in the church. But it is a sin nonetheless. In fact, it is was designated as one of "the seven deadly sins" by the early church. And, believe it or not, the Bible has a lot to say about it. For example, Proverbs 23:20-21 says, "Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags."

III. The third sin we will address today is the sin of hate. First John 2:9-11 says, "He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes."
