Jude 4 (NET) For certain men have secretly slipped in among you- men who long ago were marked out for the condemnation I am about to describe - ungodly men who have turned the grace of our God into a license for evil and who deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

I heard an erroneous 'grace' doctrine that got me laughing. It says that when Eve ate the fruit in the Garden of Eden, she did not sin until Adam ate the fruit. That now we are in Christ (the last Adam), whatever we do (wrong) is not sin because Christ did not sin.

First and foremost, there is no single scriptural reference that supports the claim that eve did not sin when she ate the fruit. Secondly, that doctrine is not consistent with the teachings of Christ and the Apostles concerning sin (see Luke 1:4, 1 John 1:9, Mat 6:14, Gal 6:1).

One can infer from scripture(Rom 5:12) that if Adam did not eat the fruit after Eve did, sin would not have had dominion over mankind, and because of Adam's stature, he could have interceded for Eve. But one cannot say that Eve did not sin when she ate the forbidden fruit. As I said, there is no scripture to support that claim.
We are in Christ (the last Adam) and Christ did not sin, this means sin does not have dominion over anyone in Christ. But if we sin, because Christ intercedes for us, we get to be cleansed. That is why He ever lives to make intercession for us (see Rom 8:38, Heb 7:25).

Sin is a spiritual toxic substance that pollutes, it is spiritual venom that ultimately produces death (see 1 Cor 15:56). That is why there is need for it to be cleansed by the powerful blood of Jesus.

Go into today trusting in the permanent cleansing power of the blood of Jesus. Sin has no power over you!

Pray that God will expose every false teaching leading the saints astray.
