Thoughts and Questions:
-Are presumptuous sins the same as sins committed in arrogance?
-Is this the same as presuming on the grace of God?
-Does I Cor 10:13 preclude these sins from having dominion over me?
-Are we even aware of our presumptuous sins?
-How do we guard against presumptuous sins?
-What are my presumptuous sins?
-For me anyway, when I am sure of myself, I am in danger of presumptuous sins.
-I think some good examples from Scripture of presumptuous sins is when King Dave took Bathsheba, or King Saul failing to slaughter the Amalekites or the actions of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts.
