What type of sins cause faith to die, and drive away the Holy Spirit?

Share |

Gross or coarse sins drive away faith and the Holy Spirit from the heart. Such sins, for example, are: drunkenness, murder and adultery. These are called mortal sins. If a person dies while living in such sins, he will be damned.

1 Cor. 5:11,13: If any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such an one do not to eat... put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

Gal. 5:19-21: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like... they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Ezek. 33:18: When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
