Can God Look Upon Sin?

Jesus Christ became sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21). The idea that God can't look upon sin is silly. Habakkuk 1:13, which seems to speak of this, refers to God not being able to look upon sin with approval. If God could not look upon sin then He would have never looked at the earth again after the fall. Jesus looked at sin over and over when He lived as a man on earth. To say God cannot look upon sin is like saying Jesus is not God.

Jesus is God. Is He less holy than the Father? Holy means pure and unmixed. People claim God is too holy to look upon sin. I say God is so holy that He can become sin and still stay pure and unmixed. That is a holiness beyond what we can imagine.

The good news is that because of Jesus, "God no longer charges people with sin" (2 Corinthians 5:19). God is not blind to help those in need out of sin or out of sinful ways yet He does not count people's sins against them.

  1. What a lying idiot. Satan's teaching! Trying to convince us of lies that the Bible is wrong, and his sinful ideas are right. Lying devil. ...with approval! Man's writing inspired of the devil and not of God.

  2. ...with approval! Here we go again. Just like your lying teaching. Now a man will approve. Not! Read a King James Bible and speak truth rather than lies to endorse your sin that you can't get rid of.

    1. Satan teaches....condemnation and backbiting....thats all I see here...We will know by the love and fruit.....I began to give more scripture to back up what I have learned to disprove this common misunderstanding in religious circles...but I am being led by Gods Spirit that you wont receive so I give you His word alone!
      1 Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.... I believe you know the rest...If hes wrong correct him but do it in love thats the point of christianity love...not human love that allows sin but truth in love. May God grow His church stronger in love.

    2. 1 Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal..... We must minister in Love. Not accepting of sin for sure but with love. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. If you believe this brother is in fault why would you attack him? I pray God grows His church stronger in love.

  3. Jesus SAW Judas betray Him to His face. Was that sin?
    Jesus SAW people yell out "Crucify Him." Was that sin?
    Genesis 6:5 KJV, "God SAW that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."

    Habakkuk 1:13 KJV, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?"
    It says God "canst not look on iniquity" then it says, "lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously" meaning "look at their iniquity & judge them."

  4. In the time of Christ what was the title of psalm 22? Which is the prophecy of the messiah to come.... Ill tell you it was My God My God why have you forsaken me. He was yelling out from the cross look at PS22!!!!!!
