A minister of sin


In The Letter to the Galatians, Chapter 2 Verse 17 states:
But if, in seeking to be justified to Christ, we ourselves are found to be sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin?

 What is a minister of sin?


The opposite of a minister of grace. One who brings/causes sin.




Yes. The word for “minister”, here, is diakonos, which means “servant” or “administrator”. You might think of it as like a restaurant waiter, actually, without straining the meaning very much.
