Seditions and heresies are sins.  False teachings which are contrary to the Bible teachings are heresies.  They are sin.  We want to live according to the Bible and know its doctrines so we can not be led into heresies.  So many are being deceived by false teachers.  People today believe everything they hear and do not search the Bible to see if it is true.  We must not believe teaching from false teachers.  Some will say, “But that person has studied the Bible many years and he ought to know.”  He may have a degree in theology etc., but that doesn’t make any difference.  We still must stay upon a firm foundation and find it in the Word for ourselves.  There is a chain running through the Bible that links truth and it must not be broken, or it will not be truth.  We are instructed in the Bible to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  But shun profane and vain babblings:  for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”  II Tim. 2:15,16.

The next sins that are given are revellings and such like. Revelling means “a noisy or riotous feast; or to feast with joyous or clamorous merriment, boisterous festivity.”  In other words it means a loud, boisterous manner of acting, or being in a crowd that acts that way.  In I Pet. 3:4 it says for us to have a “meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”  This is in harmony with God’s Spirit and His Word.

I do trust that you have an idea of what God is expecting of us.  In other words, we have listed what the Bible teaches about some things that are wrong, and what is right.  As you said, the Bible is a big book and we can’t find everything, unless we are familiar with it, so I trust these few things have been a help, as you study them.  Remember that we need to have Jesus to help us daily to obey the Word of God and be ready to meet the Lord.  First, it takes being saved from our sins, being filled with the Holy Spirit and praying and studying God’s Word.  It is a precious life when we are in the center of God’s will.  When we are saved, we can have the fruits of the Spirit in our life which are named in Gal. 5:22,23.  They are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance and many other good things that God will give to us as we live and serve Him.

Romans 1:29-32 mentions more sins.  It says that those who turn themselves over to the devil to work his evil ways are “filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same,
