The Sinless Christ

In John 8:46 Jesus asks a question of his enemies “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” Can you imagine the President of the United States or any member of congress asking this same question?

What if your pastor asked this? What makes this even more incredible is that Jesus just didn’t ask this question to His disciples, he asked His enemies! What was the answer to the question? Did anyone accuse him of a specific sin, or any sin for that matter?  No, their only response was to say that he was demon possessed. They could not name one sin! All they could do was berate and accuse him.

Who would ask such a question of His enemies? This statement was made in front of His disciples also. They were with Jesus twenty four hours a day. If anyone knew him it would have been them, and yet they remained silent also!

Even Satan and his demons have no accusation of sin against Jesus. If anyone would have accused him it would have been Satan. After all, the Bible calls him “the accuser of the brethren” (Rev. 12:10).

Just this small section of scripture goes a long way to show that Jesus was sinless; but you can’t build a doctrine on just one verse? No, doctrine must be built upon the entirety of scripture.
