Sin’s Wages

The Scripture is very plain as to the wages of sin:

For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).

Contemporary Christianity still has not shaken off the Roman, Dark-Age superstition that the wages of sin is eternal conscious torment of the wicked in hell. Tradition would have us believe that Romans 6:23 really means “the wages of sin is eternal conscious torment in fiery hell.” Nonetheless, the Scriptures say that the penalty is death.

In fact, if the wages of sin is eternal conscious torment of the wicked in hell, then Christ cannot be the Savior of the world, for He has not made such a payment for sin.

Christ is the Savior of the world, and He did make the full and complete payment of these wages for sin. He did so by dying for the sins of the world.

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Corinthians 15:3).

Who His Own self bare our sins in His Own body on the tree (I Peter 2:24).

Thank God, that the wages of sin has been paid.
