The Danger of Presumptuous Sin

Presumptuous sin is an intentional and deliberate sinful or rebellious act committed against God. It’s a complete disregard for one’s own conscience, God’s Word, and what a person knows to be right.

A person who commits presumptuous sin defiantly and pridefully declares to God that their going to do what they want to do–irregardless of what He has said about it.

In Psalm 19:13, King David prayed to God and asked Him to keep him from presumptuous sin and let them not have dominion over him.

King David understood the danger of presumptuous sin. In Numbers 15:30, it states that a person who committed a sin presumptuously blasphemed God and was to be put to death.

Fortunately, there’s hope for those who believe in Jesus Christ. They can repent and turn away from their presumptuous sin and receive forgiveness.

However, if you have received the knowledge of the truth but reject Jesus Christ and continue in your sin and rebellion, there is no sacrifice for your sins:

“For if we sin willfully after we have received knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour our adversaries” (Hebrews 10:26-27).


“Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10:29).

My brothers and sisters it’s time to wake up. The end is drawing near. This world and the pleasures of it are passing away (1 John 2:17).

“Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside, every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…” (Hebrews 12:1).

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).
