The Consciousness of Sin Mark 7:21

The consciousness of sin

a negative--a state of mind filled with un-God-like thoughts, such as fear, hate, greed, lust.

Sin consciousness in a person, is the mind composed of un-godlike thoughts. It is the opposite of the Christ consciousness, which is the logos or Mind of God manifested in the believer. The carnal mind gathers its information through the outward senses. It judges by appearances, which are often false judgements. Believers must renounce this false state of mind if he is to be one with God. The carnal mind breeds sin:

Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Man in his physical constitution is imperfect; and this imperfection is traceable to the physical organization of his flesh, being based on the principle of decay and reproduction from the blood; which, acted upon by the air, becomes the life of his flesh. All the phenomena which pertain to this arrangement of things are summed up in the simple word sin; which is, therefore, not an individual abstraction, but a concretion of relations in all animal bodies; and the source of all their physical infirmities. Now, the apostle says, that the flesh thinks, that is, the brain, as all who think are well assured from their own consciousness. If, then, this thinking organ be commanded not to do what is natural for it to do under blind impulse, will it not naturally disobey? Now this disobedience is wrong, because what God commands to be done is right, and only right; so that "by his law is the knowledge of sin"; and this law requiring an obedience which is not natural, flesh is sure to think in opposition to it. The philosophy of superstition is -- religion in harmony with the thinking of the flesh; while true religion is religion in accordance with the thoughts of God as expressed in His law. Hence, it need excite no astonishment that religion and superstition are so hostile and that all the world should uphold the latter; while so few are to be found who are identified with the religion of God. They are as opposite as flesh and spirit.

The carnal mind (Rom. 8:7) conflicting thoughts, these thoughts are what we find in persons of the sin consciousness, before their enlightenment and regeneration.

The carnal mind a state of consciousness formed from the outward senses which give rise to a false ego or false personality. All the "works of the flesh" (Gal. 5:19) are the product of carnal mind.

Bad Conscience. The conscience can be so abused that it no longer is clean and sensitive. When that happens it cannot sound out warnings or give safe guidance. (Tit 1:15) Man’s conduct is then controlled by fear of exposure and punishment rather than by a good conscience. (Ro 13:5)

Paul’s reference to a conscience that is marked as with a branding iron indicates that it would be like burnt flesh that is covered over with scar tissue and void of nerve endings and, therefore, without sense of feeling. (1Tim 4:2)

Persons with such a conscience cannot sense right or wrong. They do not appreciate the freedom God grants them and, rebelling, become slaves to a bad conscience. It is easy to defile one’s conscience. A Christian’s aim should be as shown in Acts 23:1: “Brothers, I have behaved before God with a perfectly clear conscience down to this day.”

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

A renewal of your mind is the very first requirement of the new life in Christ. We go into this new and higher state of consciousness as we would go into another country. The kingdom of heaven is right here within us and will become tangible reality to us when we have developed the mental capability (co-perception) necessary to comprehend it.

Nobody will understand this without fully understanding the ego.

The best example of the ego is fear of death, lack of empathy, and the human hierarchy.

There is therefore no more condemnation in Christ who strengthens me

  1. In truth, you have to let go of God and understand with Wisdom the Immeasurable one is not a god at all. All gods have come forth from chaos and many are the stories of their beginnings. There was one god who rose above the rest and this is the Lord who is Christ Almighty. We're the children and many don't understand this, imagining the flesh when the true little one is within. Soul is sleeping and is formless and shapeless and only those souls who are with the Holy Spirit through Christ will hear the cry of the Mother of the living to turn to the Father through the Son & convert into a little child born of water and spirit within - this is how the separation of water and spirit comes away from flesh and blood before death. We're in the II coming of Christ and I tell you I am SHE and this causes a problem in man who has no idea what's going on yet imagines he knows. Its time to let go of old post and print and start fresh from what's within you. Bring forth what is within you and lets reason together. The true light of the Father doesn't go away he's Immeasurable & no matter when you let go of the right afraid to fall he will not let you fall, you're with him who is Christ and Jesus is the only way, to us who have received him he's more than a brother he's a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Letting go of this world while you remain within and crossing over with Jesus entering the only way is the way the Father has made ready for you to go with the Lord. Jesus is Lord and our precious saviour and without him who's the Christ the first born of many who is our Father you're nothing but a walking bag of flesh and bones for without him all god-heads full of self knowledge handed down through the ages who speak of energy and source/ demons and angels who do not let go of the right in this world will have no body to call their own upon death of this vessel. I'm telling you straight up, you can't be a child if you don't have a body. Soul's body is not this flesh and blood, soul is meant to transform within by the renewing of the mind. The error is small called a sliver in the eye allowing you not to see until its removed.
