Does God Really Forgive Our Sins
The Bible says that we will have to answer for every sin we have committed on judgement day--thought, word, or deed. But it also says that if we confess our sins and ask forgiveness, He will remember our sins no more. Explain, please.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 IT IS WRITTEN. No better way to say it.

This refers to the unsaved.
Christians will NOT have answer for sin on judgment day. Psm 103:12
The Christian will have their life evaulated from a faithful service point of view with the end result being rewards or the lack there of. NOT punishment or judgment of sin. Some will enter Heaven empty handed (rewards wise) and others will have an abudant entnrance (rewards wise). I Cor 3:6-15

When we sin we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus. So if we do sin and confess up to it God blots it out and doesn't remember it. When we appear before the Judgement seat of Christ it isn't for condemnation.
II Corinthians 5:21
I John 1:9
An example is Hezekiah. He was supposed to die, but when he repented and got his house in order God forgave him and gave him 15 more years.

God in simplicity. We are all sinners, we were born in sin. We have no way to earn our freedom. Thank God, He gave Himself a sacrifice for us. A pardon. That means they did not happen. Our sins were written in red and God reads them through the blood of Christ. Try reading red ink through a red filter. It doesn't exist, praise His name. The only "catch" is that to be pardoned, you must accept it. A pardon is a two part deal. To deny Christ is to deny your pardon.

God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is far more merciful than WE want to admit. Not telling the whole Bible truth is a grave sin, too because we are misrepresenting God's love for us.
God does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
"the wages of sin is death" needs to be examined under this light. God is far more merciful than Paul wants to admit.

Every one must give an account of their life before God, whether saved or not. There is a group of people called, "faith-only" or "sin-supporters", these are hearers of the Word of God, but not doers. They think that because they are called Christian, they are always in right-standing with God, even while in sin. But the Bible is clear, if you die in your sins then you are damned, no matter what you may say or believe that you are. Please read Matthew 25:31-46; II Corinthians 5:10.

God's standard is perfection Matt 5:48 Sinless perfection. No sin will enter heaven. REv 21:27 Either one is saved - forgiven, or unsaved -unforgiven. Jesus is our righteousness and He suffered the punishment for ALL our sin. II Cor 5:21, Acts 13:39 It is impossible to recall EVERY sin.

1 John 1:7 shows that if we walk in the light (do our best to follow and obey Him) we ARE forgiven. This is not an excuse to sin for if we live that way (using this as an excuse to sin), we are not walking in the light at all and are not forgiven. Not forgiven = lost.
Almost saved is completly lost.

Unbelievers will be answerable for every thought, word and deed. I think that believers will be answerable for those we have not confessed. The ones we have confessed are over and done with because God cannot even remember them.
