Gal. 6:7-8; Titus 3:3 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our sin will find us out, there is no true secret sin, because God knows all! Numbers 32:23 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>So called secret sin brought destruction for Ananias and Sapphira. Acts 5:5, 10 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Any sin will ultimately bring the same for us!

  4. 5. Don’t Try To Hide Your Sin! <ul><li>Sin has no real lasting value! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The idea that sin’s “grass is greener” is false. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sin has its consequences! “It’s stupid to trade an ounce of temporal pleasure for an eternal weight of punishment.” Hebrews 11:24-27; Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:42-48 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example of Greed’s deception… 1 Tim.6:6-10 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Our soul’s salvation is worth more than the whole world!
