Sin is a real threat and problem to our lives and our communities. The Apostle Paul warns us that “a little leaven leavens the whole lump” (1 Cor 5:6) and Jesus told his disciples that it would be better to lose an eye or cut off a hand that causes one to sin than for a person to go to hell (Mark 9:42-48). But how are we supposed to deal with sin? We hide it in our own lives, and we are quick to judge it in the lives of others, but this only makes things worse.
At this event, Chris Conyers, Lecturer in New Testament at Moore College, will help us think about how the gospel enables us to deal with sin together. We’ll spend the evening exploring practically how we can continue to grow in our Christian lives, putting sin to death.
Chris Conyers lectures part-time in New Testament studies at Moore College. He has just completed his PhD on the role of Genesis 2–4 in the Apostle Paul’s Epistle to the Romans.
