Nothing showed up indicating that emails had been sent to just about everyone on the church’s contact list. Undeliverable Mail notices showed up in the church’s spam bucket to those contacts who either changed their email or dropped their email account.
We took action: changed passwords, did malware scans, and had all the church computers checked by a professional. This cleared up the problem that had infected and compromised our email account.
Each of us has been hacked from birth.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned--
Some may take the view that humankind is basically good and not bad. Parents raising young children know that they need to teach them to share, say sorry and be nice. They do not need to teach them to be selfish, to lie or to steal. This is the sin stain from Adam and Eve. You and I need to be cleaned of the problem of sin that has infected us from birth.
The good news is that Jesus can completely clean up our sin infection.
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
The computers would not have gotten clean without intentional action taken. You must take intentional action by confessing your infection, your sin, and be hacked no more.
1 John 1:8-9
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
