What’s The Worst Sin You Can Commit?
The worst sin you can commit is not murder. It’s not adultery. It’s not stealing. The biggest sin you can commit is the sin of unbelief in Christ.
Have you ever wondered what the biggest sin is? There are all kinds of preaching against homosexuality, drinking, adultery, and other forms of so-called disobedience. But what if I told you the worst sin you could commit isn’t outward. It’s not adultery. It’s not lying, stealing, or even murder.
Every outward sin you could ever commit is forgivable if you have called on Jesus as Lord and depend on Him alone to take your sins away.
So, what’s the worst sin you can commit?
The worst sin a person can commit is the sin of unbelief. It’s inward sin.
Yes, Jesus died for our sins. BUT, He died for outward sins. Adultery. Lying. Coveting. etc., etc., etc.
All outward sins are forgivable. BUT, if you die with the inward sin of unbelief you will not inherit the Kingdom (i.e. enter heaven, be saved).
Some teach that suicide is an unforgivable sin, but you won’t find such teaching in the scripture. Again, ALL outward sin is forgivable for those who believe God when He says Jesus is His Son, who died for our sins, and was resurrected to give us new life.
Do You Want to Lead Unbelievers Away From Outward Sin?
I get it. We all want to lead people away from outward sin. That includes believers and unbelievers.
But, for this discussion, what’s the best way to lead unbelievers away from outward sin? Is it fear and condemnation? No.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t point out their sin (lovingly, and gently).
But, what’s the best way to get an unbeliever to avoid sin?
I think Jesus is the best way. What I mean by this is I think leading people to Christ and letting Jesus handle their sinful desires is best.
God swears that He will give believers a new heart and new desires.
He literally puts His Spirit in us, and guides us daily.
Do you trust God to do this? I do.
So, if you want to lead an unbeliever away from sin, then share the gospel. Jesus is the ONLY one that can lead people away from their sin.
But remember this. There is only one sin that leads to death. The sin of unbelief. If your heart is for people’s salvation, then spend more time talking about their inward sin, and less about the outward sin. Tell them about how Jesus died for their outward sin. Don’t let the focus be on telling the stop.
Led them to Jesus. He will change their desires. I LOVE IT! Jesus is that good.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
