Rich, our son, and his somewhat autistic friend, Matthew K Westrich, get credit for the ‘game’ idea. Because Matt wanted to know when and if he, or others, were breaking God’s laws, Rich and he came up with a solution. One of them would think of a comment relating to one of the Commandments and the other one would guess which Commandment was being referred to. With God’s help I built on that.
“Scripture says in Gal 5: “16 But I say, walk habitually in the [Holy] Spirit [seek Him and be responsive to His guidance], and then you will certainly not carry out the desire of the sinful nature [which responds impulsively without regard for God and His precepts]. 17 For the sinful nature has it’s desire which is opposed to the Spirit, and the [desire of the] Spirit opposes the sinful nature; for these [two, the sinful nature and the Spirit] are in direct opposition to each other [continually in conflict], so that you [as believers] do not [always] do whatever [good things] you want to do. 18 But if you are guided and led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the Law. 19 Now the practices of the sinful nature are clearly evident: they are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (total irresponsibility, lack of self-control), 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions [that promote heresies], 21 envy, drunkenness, riotous behavior, and other things like these. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Amplified Bible)
I believe, when we as Christians sin, either by omission (forgetting something that God wants us to do), or by commission (on purpose): the Bible says “They who “practice” such things should repent”.
It’s my belief that when/if we have unrepented of sin in our lives, that we ‘open spiritual gates’ for the enemy to attack us. I believe that as we mature spiritually, if we continue to ‘practice’ sin, we put ourselves in harm’s way.
In the wilderness, the Israelites sinned foolishly when Moses was gone up the mountain to get God’s laws. They asked Aaron to make them a golden calf idol to worship. Many died as a result.” Ex 32
