aka makes good point. Why do some think adultery deserves loss of salvation moreso than other wrongs?
And good question, "when does delivery start?" Rom7:6 tells us. "But NOW we are delivered from the law...."
The criminal on the cross next to Jesus was delivered on his death bed by believing on Jesus. Why would it be less so for those who live for many years here in this life as believing Christians and yet fail to live an exemplary life all during that time?
---Haz27 on 11/8/10|
delivery start with the seed or is it when fruit is produced and maintained through the Spirit ? -aka on 11/7/10
Aka, when was the vine actually planted?
In the beginning.
Its NOT us who produces the fruit and maintains it. Christ is. When you step out of the will of God - out of CHRIST, you sin.
Its wrong to lie and not ask for forgiveness. Thats making the sacrifice null and void, not the interpretation Linda gave.
Christ cleans us up.
Again, if a person is committing adultery, its HIGHLY unlikely he/she is even Christian. Someone in Christ, walking in his SPIRIT wouldn't do that!
You can't sin and think you are in Christ...that is gnosticism!
Do you think Christ came so you could sin for free?
---ginger on 11/8/10|
Haz, your right. "Repentance unto salvation" is a one time event. Brought to the person by the Spirit's conviction that He has sinned against God. His eyes are opened and he has ears to hear and a new heart, so he ask for forgiveness. He is indwelled by the Spirit and seal forever. His actions thereafter can never condemn him again. For there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. It is not a license to sin, because our disposition has changed. Since there is no one who can keep the law perfect, many will continue to break it less and less while in the flesh, for the flesh has not been redeemed. No sin after salvation can cause a person to lose salvation, read what Linda and Mima stated why.
---Mark_V. on 11/8/10|
Very good Linda....Agree totally

David was under a double death sentence for the murder he committed and the adultery, but God showed mercy. Is the New Covenant less than the old?
---Linda on 11/7/10|
Yesi, see "King David" both adulterer and murderer.
God doesn't see your sins when he looks at you, he sees his son or you would never make it into heaven.
Its not that he doesn't know our sins, nor that we can drift on without the expectation of chatisement.
Its his forgiveness not ours as a reason we hope.
---larry on 11/7/10|
When Jesus died, all our sins were future. If we are not totally and forever forgiven through His death, there remains no more sacrifice for sin because Jesus will not die again. To say we are not forgiven for sins we may commit is to say the sacrifice was not enough to pay for all sin. The only sin separating man from God is the sin of unbelief in Christ. He was the sacrifice for sins forever.
---Linda on 11/7/10|
so, it does not matter if you are a habitual liar or engage in other behavior not worthy of the kingdom. evidently now there is one sin that can make you lose your salvation, and it is adultery.
maybe, now, we need to rethink delivery and "born again". whatda ya think?
does delivery start with the seed? or is it when fruit is produced and maintained through the Spirit ?
---aka on 11/7/10|
So many repent but still continue same wrongs. To repent is to turn away from the offence and stop doing it. Because your still doing the same wrongs you have NOT repented.
Rom7 speaks of the battle flesh v"s Spirit, how we continually do the wrongs we don't want to. Then Paul says it is Christ who saves us from this body of death.
But the repentance God actually seeks is "repentance of dead works" Heb 6:1. As Mima asked, was "man who died in the act of adultery sins covered or not? Answer: Yes, if he believes on Jesus.
Rom4:8, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin."
However, God chastises those He loves so, like King David, that adulterer will not profit from their wrong.
---Haz27 on 11/7/10|
Mima, are you saying a person who commits adultery and doesn't repent will still go to heaven if they call themselves Christian?
Christ says not everyone who says "Lord,Lord" will get into heaven.
A person who has committed adultery and not repented of it is not Christian.
Christ says we will know a person is of him by the fruit they bear. Because adultery isn't a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Check Galatians 5 if you think I'm lying. I never said they couldn't still be forgiven and still go to heaven but they must repent. You cannot continue to sin while under the blood. It renders it null and void brother. That's a very simple truth told by Christ himself.
Also, please stop asking questions that stir up strife.
---ginger on 11/7/10|
Ginger your statement."Also, If you sin while you after you are saved it is not covered! You must repent of it first before it will be covered." Is a perfectly clear example of what you believe. I have a book in my library in which Jimmy Swaggart says the same thing. He says God forgives you for all your sin up to when you got saved, but that you're responsible for them after your salvation is in place. So one can easily see that what you are saying is that you by and through your repentance
are the one responsible for your sins after you are saved.-- Remember No men at any time, or under any condition can ever pay for his sins.
---mima on 11/7/10|
Depends. if they truly repent & donot do it again, yes they can. If they repent,but countinue then no, God says they aren't allowed in his kingdom.
---candice on 11/7/10|
---ginger neither your interpretation nor mine is binding upon God. What is binding upon God is his word already recorded and not subject to change. Romans 4:8,"Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." Is correct, is solid, and praise the Lord, applies to you because you're a Christian.
---mima on 11/7/10|
Question was the(Christian) man who died in the act of adultery sins covered or not?
---mima on 11/6/10
Haz, did you read this trick question that Mima wrote to start strife?
Well I answered his question biblically.
Why don't you?
He says a person who was Christian died IN the act of Adultery. Is that man still saved?
NOT according to the Bible.His sin of adultery was not covered. He probably was a pretender anyway.
Now will you please not jump all over me about what God says about unrepentant adulterer? Also, If you sin while you after you are saved it is not covered! You must repent of it first before it will be covered.
Plus, I agree with Alan. A true Christian would not go around doing stuff like that.
---ginger on 11/7/10|
Mima and Haz, your interpretations are taken out of context. You are not rightly dividing God's word.
You really think God is going to let a person who is in the middle of fornication/adultery and dies will inherit the kingdom?
Now if they ask for forgiveness, then of course they will. But an unrepentant heart will not see God. An unrepentant Adulterer will not see God whether they call themselves Christian or not.
A real follower of Christ would not commit adultery. And if they happen to, they would certainly repent of it.
---ginger on 11/6/10|

Hosea was sent twice. The story was a type and shadow of the Savior who comes twice to save His bride who is a spiritual adulterer.
so you tell me, If someone commits adultery and asks for forgiveness can they still be saved?
---aka on 11/6/10|
Mark ... The consequences you mention are just possiblities, terrible as they are. But it brings even more and inevitable hurt than you mention, for it involves betrayal: of one's spouse, of one's "lover's" spouse, of one's lover, and of oneself.
Tghinking of the Christian who dies in the act of adultery, I would think in most cases it is likely that he/she is only a "Christian" not a true Christian, for it is unlikely that a true Christian would go down the route of adultery.
As you know, I don't beleive that once you are saved, a true Christian would deliberately sin, both against God and his neighbour
---alan8566_of_UK on 11/6/10|
I assume you meant you agreed God chastises those He loves hence adultery has bad consequences, and not "adultery is sin"
I wouldn't want anyone to think I was using the label "sin" (transgression of the law) now, would I.
But I agree with your examples of consequences of adultery.
Mima is correct. Jesus fulfilled the law on the cross. So "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin" Rom4:8
Now the sin the world is convicted of is the sin of unbelief (John16:9).
Christians have died to the law and are now married to another (Rom7:4). To go back under the law is the type of adultery that leads to "judgement and fiery indignation"(Heb 10:26-29).
---Haz27 on 11/6/10|
Ginger please give your interpretation of the following verse, what does it mean.
"Romans 4:8, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin."
---mima on 11/6/10|
Genuine repentance brings genuine forgiveness, but unsincere repentance is worthless.
---Eloy on 11/6/10|
I agree with you on your last post MarkV.
A person who dies in the act of adultery will not be saved.
Why, you ask, Mima?
Because if a person who claims to be a Christian is committing adultery, according to the Bible, he/she is not a Christian and cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
Remember that a good tree bears good fruit and a bad tree bears bad fruit.
A bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
And a Good tree cannot bear bad fruit.
What Mima asked is liken unto a good tree bearing bad fruit. According to Christ, this is not possible.
---ginger on 11/6/10|
Haz27, your last post was right on. Adultery is sin, but also, when the word of God mention's for believers not to commit adultery, it is for our own good also. With adultery comes very terrible consequences. A person can lose his/her spouse, his/hers children, job and many time most of their friends for what they have done. Other times they might bring a diease to the spouse, like aids or other diease that can kill another. Adultery has terrible consequences.

"if one DIED in the act of Adultery without a chance to repent and ask for GOD's Forgiveness, they would end up in Hell.
---Gordon on 11/5/10"
If the above statement is true then my salvation depends upon my actions. However the Bible says this.
Romans 4:8, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin."
Question was the(Christian) man who died in the act of adultery sins covered or not?
---mima on 11/6/10|
If a Christian commits sexual adultery and he or she asks GOD for forgiveness, and has truly repented of this sin (agrees with GOD that it IS a sin, and agrees not to commit this sin again), then, YES, they can still be saved. But, here's the problem, the sinful human nature is weak, and the Devil will take advantage of this weakness to incite us to take advantage of GOD's Forgiveness and Mercy by thinking that this "one little sin of adultery, 'just this once' will be okay, after all, GOD loves me, HE doesn't want me to go to Hell, and He'll forgive me.", etc. That is playing russian roulette with one's soul, for if one DIED in the act of Adultery without a chance to repent and ask for GOD's Forgiveness, they would end up in Hell.
---Gordon on 11/5/10|
Nowhere did I say it was right. I just said it was a sin (i.e. an offense against God), but not a crime (i.e. an offense against the state). I am in no way sugarcoating the word "sin".
Can you show any verse in the Bible that says "sin" is a "crime against God"? In fact, the word "crime" is only used very rarely in the Bible (only 4 places in the KJV), while "sin" is used very frequently.
---StrongAxe on 11/6/10|
In spite of all the adultery and other wrongs people commit, praise God that it is by grace that we are saved, through faith, not works (Eph 2:8,9)
However, God doesn't let Christians profit from doing wrong things, as He chastises those He loves.
But now, the sin the world will be convicted of is the sin of unbelief (John16:9).
"He that believes on Him is NOT condemned, but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John3:18)

---mike88874 on 11/5/10|
It is obvious that you are only one of many who don't know the "living God". It is a crime against God. There are many crimes against God here, that ignorant men overlook, and make legal. Judgment day is coming and this judge will be a harsh judge, on any and all who commits crimes against Him, including great sexual crimes. Oh, you wicked people can sugarcoat the word sin if you please, however, I can assure you that they are crimes against God, of which you will be punished severely.
---catherine on 11/5/10|
(By the way, adultery is a sexual SIN, not a sexual CRIME - it is not illegal.)
God takes ALL sins very seriously. Sexual sins are no more or less severe than any other. I have noticed a tendency in evangelical circles, however, to treat any kind of sexual sin as being much worse than any other. For example, people are much more likely to believe in the total forgiveness and rehabilitation of a murderer than, say, a child molester. Fallen pastors who embezzle millions are much more readily forgiven than those who commit adultery.
---StrongAxe on 11/5/10|
If not, hardly, if anyone can make it to heaven. The answer is YES. Because, God takes sexual crimes seriously, I'll add>>>"Go and sin no more"....Hallelujah, Thank You Jesus+
---catherine on 11/5/10|
King David committed adultery and murder. God forgave him, but punished him.
So we will not profit by committing adultery.
Adultery does not annul your salvation. Jesus fulfilled the law for us and it is by faith that we are saved, not works.
Spiritual adultery is different however. To be saved by grace and then go back under works is spiritual adultery. This can lead to death.
---Haz27 on 11/4/10|
Christ died for the forgiveness of sin. HE doesnt or didnt need our help. Its finished.

Question, are you guilty of adultery? Well let us examine the situation. According to Matthew 5:28,"But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" who among us is prepared to say we are not guilty of adultery? The truth is all A-L-L mankind falls into the category of guilt in this beatitude found in Matthew 5:28.
Question, anyone feel like throwing the first stone??
---mima on 11/2/10|
God bless your soul. Please read the book of Galatians to begin with.Romans will help you also. We do not have the freedom to do as we please.When we learn better we are expected to do better. But all of our sins have been forgiven and nailed to the cross. If we could save ourself we would not need a Savior. Jesus would have died in vain. You can be an adulterer and still go to heaven.But if someone want to do this and think it is ok, they had better think again.We have freedom to do the will of God. To live by the Spirit. Not the flesh.Our sins will find us out.
---Robyn on 11/1/10|
Amen, Harry. Anytime the true gospel of Jesus Christ is preached, the logical response to it is the same one you got here. Be blessed brother. Paul dealt with the same thing. Anyone who believes that we continue in sin that grace may abound does not understand grace, nor has he taken a really good look at the cross of Christ. There is where we see the supreme love of God for man AND His supreme hatred for that which separated man from Him. Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world! There is life for a look. Jesus lifted up is the casting out of the enemy and the judgment of the biting serpents on a pole.
---Linda on 11/1/10|
The Lord does not take back Salvation. We give it back to him for all kind of reasons. If any man sin God is faithful and just to forgive him/her of that sin and cleanse them of that unrighteous act, that is putting him back in right standing with him again. The only sin that the Lord does not forgive is Blasphemy against him. Now that does not mean go out and have a party sinning. Because even with forgiveness oftentimes comes harsh chastisement.
---joyce on 11/1/10|
1 Corinthians 6:9-11:
"9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither ... nor adulterers, ..."
"11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
ALL sins can be forgiven (except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit). There are many cases in the Bible of murderers being forgiven, and surely murder is worse than adultery (otherwise, people would be killing their wives instead of cheating on them).

Woohoo! Let the sinning begin! It must be nice to be part of a religion that lets you be the most despicable person you can be, as long as you ask for forgiveness before you die. I bet you guys get a lot of sinning in before you repent. I was just wondering, would you guys still sin,or sin as much, if there was no one there to forgive you? If you felt resposible for ALL of your sins, would you commit the same sins? I don't like to use scapegoats, and I find myself personally responsible for everything I do, good or bad. I am held accountable for all my actions, and no one is there to take the bad away whenever I want them to. If christians were more accountable, you would then have more Christ-like christians, instead of mostly hypocrites.

Salvation Mark 16 v 16 Is a work, Acts 2 v's 37 - 41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20 by His grace to receive Is a work, praying Is a work, even fasting Is a work, witnessing Is a work, attending services Is a work. When scripture says not of works lest any man should boast, it's referring to man's carnal works to boast or brag about.
---Lawrence on 6/21/10|
Ephesians 2:8-9 We are not saved by works period we are saved by accepting Christ as our LORD and Savior. Therefore if we not saved by our works we in turn cannot lose salvation by works. What you have to understand is that we are saved by Grace through faith. So just asking for forgiveness is not going to save you....Having faith in Jesus Christ as your lord and savior. Romans 3:19-26...Teaches us that Righteousness is not a result of our obedience, it is a result of Christ making us righteous through his blood and our Faith. However, verses 27-31 teach us that our obedience should be a result of our righteousness(that comes from Christ) When we are saved by Christ God no longer see us as sinful all he sees is Christ..

Rosalie #2, and he articulated the gospel clearly. And I said, Do you believe that? Do you believe that Jesus Christ actually died on the cross as a sacrifice for sin, to satisfy the justice of God on behalf of sinners who believe? Do you believe that He rose from the dead literally, and that God therefore affirmed the perfect sacrifice by the resurrection, and he said yes. I said then you know the Truth. Only one thing remains, and that is to cast yourself on the mercy of God. God is not bound to save you. You have defiled Him, but Jesus said "Whosoever comes to Me, I will in no wise cast out" All I can tell you to do is plead with God to save you. He begin pleading for God to forgive him. He died five days later.

Mark 3:21-30 Matthew 12:31-32
Some scribes (who thought they were righteous) said Jesus was Beelzebub (the ruler of demons) because Jesus had cast demons out of a man. Jesus said ALL sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter, BUT he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit NEVER has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation,' because they said, 'Jesus had an unclean spirit'"
Every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come"

Donna, If you do not repent, then you have no forgivenes, nor do you have any grace, nor do you have any salvation at all: and instead, the only thing you have is sin and God's wrath and condemnation down onto perdition. The proof of being truly forgiven is a truly righteous life, but if a sinner remains in their sin, namely, adultery as in this posting, then there is no salvation. That is why Jesus created a heaven and he also created a hell: one eternal abode is for the righteous, and the other eternal abode is for the sinner.
---Eloy on 12/24/09|
I would caution you that asking for forgiveness and REPENTING are not the same thing.
Repent means to turn away from the sin (forever) never commit it again.
Asking for forgiveness doesn't necessarily mean you will not do it again. Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it has no life in itself.
You must repent, turn away from the sin just as Jesus told the woman caught in adultery, "Go and sin no more."
---Donna on 12/23/09|

It is all about a repented heart. If you are a true Christian and have a repented heart, you will confess it to God, and He will forgive you.

Jesus came to give repentance to us. He can forgive any sin that we will repent of (accept His gift of repentance). In David we have a married man lusting after a married woman in his heart (adultery--Matthew 5:28), adding to that having a relationship with her, and then adding to that, the sin of murder. David was forgiven.
---wayne8738 on 7/16/05|
King David is a poor illustration in this instance, his sin was of coveting his neighbors wife and directing a series of events to have her husband killed in the line of duty so he could lawfully marry his widow. Adultery has a very precise canon definition it can only occur when two married parities are engaged in sexual relation with a party other than their spouse; anything else is fortification.
