People's Bible Notes for John 15:22


Joh 15:22 If I had not come . . . they had not had sin. Certain conclusions follow: (1) The degree of our sin is measured by our opportunities; (2) increased opportunities bring a consciousness of sin; light in the room enables us to see the dirt; (3) "the sin" of sins is the rejection of Christ. Since he came there is no cloke, no covering, no excuse. Those who refuse Christ die in their sins, because they will not part from them.
