Most preachers will tell you that sin is “natural” and you cannot help it. I tell you the exact opposite. Sin is very much unnatural and very much avoidable.

First, the Bible says that God never allows temptation to exceed your ability so that you are able to bear it and there is a way of escape (1 Cor. 10:13).

Second, God did not design or intent mankind for the commission of sin (Gen. 6:5-6) so nothing could be more unnatural than for us to engage in it.

Consider the sin of ABORTION. What an unnatural horrific sin it is! Is it not natural for a mother to love and cherish her child? When I am in public with my children, women especially always compliment me for having wonderful beautiful children. There is something in the nature of a woman to have affection for babies. But the Bible says that in the last days, people will be “without NATURAL affection” (2 Tim. 3:3) The word used in the Greek New Testament is “ἄστοργος” and it means to be without natural affection for your own children or “inhuman.” How horribly unnatural it is for a mother to murder her own child! How twisted! How perverted! How inhuman it is!

And so it is that sin is very much unnatural! It is inhuman! And it is absolutely avoidable. And for these reasons, sinners are justifiably punishable by God and without excuse in His Holy Courtroom. And if more preachers would preach these truths, the eyes of unregenerate men might be opened to see their own wretched state, come under the conviction of sin, and cry out to God for mercy through Jesus Christ.
