Can Sin One Time Same Sin

A friend was told at a bible study that if we sin a second time the same sin we go to hell, espically if we forget to or don't repent of it. Do you believe this?

Thus did Job continually."
"It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their
hearts." That could be called "damage control". Job knew of
the very likely turn of events of much feasting and so he
kept his children always before God, in "burnt offerings" always
seeking God's grace for his sons.

How does one curse God in their heart? We read, Matthew 22:
37: "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."
The "heart" and the "mind" are being differentiated here. The
mind we know could formulate a curse, going from thought to
---Nana on 1/23/08

How does the heart curse? In words? Matthew 24:48: "But and if
that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his
coming,..." How does the heart "say"? Even a clearer path from
the heart to the mouth, Matthew 12:34: "O generation of vipers,
how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the
abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh."
---Nana on 1/23/08

Even more, Matthew 6:21: "For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also." Mark 7:21: "For from within, out of
the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries,
fornications, murders, 22: Thefts, covetousness, wickedness,
deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride,
foolishness: 23: All these evil things come from within, and
defile the man."

Wow! Even "blasphemy" proceeds from the heart!!! It would seem
that All sin then, violates the Golden Rule of love God and
love neighbor by their effect and their intended or actual
target, (Mark 7:21). What can we do with our heart?
---Nana on 1/23/08

Some suggestions:
Always carry it with you.
Do not leave it ever unnatended without parental suppervision
(parents are usually good at keeping your heart)
Fill your mind and your eyes with the word of God and look for
its truths as manifested in everything (Deut 6:5_9)
Truly truly truly start loving your fellow man and get hard
on yourself when you diminish him by his looks like in the
expression, "he strikes me wrong...", and learn to hear him out.
---Nana on 1/23/08

Don't make excuses for you'll be justifying the objects of your
affections (sins)
Don't say "we are" and "will always be sinners" for you are
denying the Lord's command to stay clear from sin
Follow Jack's advise: "God knows that each of us have strongholds
and habits of sin to be overcome. All we can do is try, with
God's help, to overcome them." key on "sin to be overcome" and
"with God's help"

I personally believe that the Lord is not anywhere near us when
and while we sin. Many say, "God will never leave his children".
Well, with Jesus gathered some of the heavy sinners of the time
but there is a fine point to make here, Jesus did not go on any
"sinning escapade" with them, they were listening and learning
and filling their hearts with good treasure.
---Nana on 1/23/08

Job 1:4: "And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every
one his day, and sent and called for their three sisters to eat
and to drink with them. 5: And it was so, when the days of their
feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them,
and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings
according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be
that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts.

I don't think it's all quite so "black and white" as that. Otherwise, we're in big trouble.

How many of us even know every last sin that we commit? It's impossible to repent of them all if we don't know them all.

Just imagine standing before God at the final judgment, and being handed a pen and a very long piece of paper and being told "List every sin you committed in your life. If you miss even one, you're going to hell".
---StrongAxe on 1/21/08

The Apostle refers to the "sin that so easily besets us"--otherwise known as besetting sins. God knows that each of us have strongholds and habits of sin to be overcome. All we can do is try, with God's help, to overcome them.

If a person is doing wrong and goes back and forth to God asking forgiveness, God is going to get tired of that and he may not forgive that person again. If I keep sinning, and I don't repent my name will be erased from the lambs book of life. the same with marriage if ones keeps cheating on the other, their marriage will end.
---Rebecca_D on 7/31/06

#1 Rebecca: Maybe this will help. Our name is either written in the Lambs book of life, or it is not. One is either married, or one is not. Marriage is a wonderful picture of our relationship with the Lord. "Husbands,love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it" Eph 5:26 If you wrong your husband somehow, should you confess and ask forgiveness? Yes, But if you do not, does that make you unmarried? No, but it sure can make your make your marriage miserable.
---Donna2277 on 7/26/06

God is our Heavenly Parent. Our earthly parents would not kick us out of their home and forbid us to continue being their children because we say, smoked a cigarette after we had confessed it before. Addictions are hard to break. Why should we think our Heavenly Father would take back his eternal gift of salvation? Sin is not an easy thing to stay away from!
---Amy9384 on 7/25/06

If a person sins and doesn't repent for that sin, then I do believe that person won't go to heaven. If all of our present and future sins are forgiven, then why does the bible tell us to repent? That wouldn't make sense.
---Rebecca_D on 7/25/06

Peter asked Jesus, if my brother sins against me, how many times Do I have to forgive him, seven? Jesus said seventy times seven. IF we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive them. First John talks about the folks who continually sin, he calls it "practicing sin." READ 1 John, you will see the difference between a person who continually sins and doesn't stop and a person who sins but loves the Lord and doesn't want to sin and wants to be free from that particular sin.

God's grace is so sufficient but then Paul says in Romans that 'shall we continue sinning that grace may abound by no means',sometimes we sin because we want to,but God cannot give you a temptation that you cannot overcome,so ask for his grace to overcome that sin and remember his mercies are new every morning!!!
---mwansa on 7/25/06

At that rate, I don't think there will be many in heaven.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/25/06

No. Jesus died for ALL of his/her sins, not just #1 (or2,4,7 etc.) Wasn't it Jesus who told US to forgive seventy times seven? He didn't say "but only if the offender asks forgiveness." Would Jesus ask us to do what He was unwilling to do? If this person is a Child of God, the Holy Spirit will work on him/her until there is true repentance.
