Word of the Week: Iniquity

December 7, 2018

Pastor Nathanael Mayhew takes a look at the word Iniquity this week. The word has the basic meaning of something which is crooked or bent out of shape. God's prophets of the Old Testament would use this as a common description of the rebellion of humanity against God's Law. Not only does it describe our crooked behavior, but it is also used to describe the result of that behavior. We must carry the burden of our iniquity or "guilt." But while God at times allows us to suffer the earthly consequences of our iniquity, He desires our salvation and sent Jesus to bear our iniquities in our place at the cross. Because of the work of our Savior who has come, we are forgiven and set free!
