Sometimes. Ought to go around blushing all the time. Perhaps I shall one of these days.

You can believe whatever you desire duane. I speak the truth for I go by what the Holy and Divine Scriptures proclaim. While I speak the truth, you speak another gospel that allow a believe to feel o.k to sin, live a unholy life, not confess their sins, etc.

I understand you will defend your man made gospel, and I understand you will listen to me or the Apostle John, for what Jesus said? "the darkness comprehended not" (Jn 1:5).

Maybe one day you will listen to God's Word.

You cannot quote a Scripture that states one do not have to confess their sins nor any Scripture that states "repenting" does not mean repenting of sins. Nor can you give any Scriptures that states Christ forgave your future sins alreadly and thus one does not have to worry about sinning. That is why your posts are empty of Scriptures because your words are empty.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us . . . ." (1:9)

Who we are in private, without blogs, religion, outside of a church, church peers, without anyone but God watching, is who we are really are.
---Michelle on 1/27/08

duane, I don't know if you're simply playing a role for "us", because your other names believe differently.
Why "us" snaps in and out of different religions and beliefs like a swinging door or for whatever purpose it could possible serve you,...
But for this particular "us" role, your interpretation of sin aligns more closely with new age teachings, but it is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Repentance of sin leads to forgiveness of sin by God.
---Cindy on 1/26/08

I beg to differ. I think it is possible to repent of your sins but still reject Christ. Maybe I am wrong. But look at Judas. He betrayed God and repented but nowhere does it say that God took him to Heaven. Why not? Because he knew he had sinned, but it was TOO LATE. He had failed the test.
---frances on 1/26/08

If we reject Christ and faith in him, then repentence for sins is not going to do us any good. If we believe in Christ but don't feel our consciences telling us we are sinning, then belief in Christ won't do us any good. SOME faiths have deliberately seared the consciences of believers making them worship idols, eat ritual foods, objectify God, personify God....etc.
---frances on 1/26/08

One cannot turn to Christ unless he repent from sin first????? How is that??
A man needs a reason to repent of sin, that reason is the love of his saviour, Jesus.
We are saved through faith in HIM..NOT through repentance of sin or lack of sin, for your repentance of sin is only temporary, HIS blood is everlasting.
Jesus died (2000 yrs ago) for all our sins which were in the future. HE became sin for us so we could have salvation. IN HIM we have forgiveness of sin. (The good news.)
---duane on 1/25/08

*Repenting of sin will NOT save anyone, but repenting (turning to Christ) will...*

Repenting of sins is the same as turning to Christ, for one cannot turn to Christ unless he repent of his sins.

Your belief that "repenting" does not mean repenting of sins does not make sense (contrary to the meaning of the word) and contradict many passages.

You must repent for your sins, live a Holy Life (Matt 5:48, Heb 12:14) obey His commandments (1 Jh 2:4, 6, etc), in order to be saved.
---Ramon on 1/25/08

The Apostle John knew that repenting your sins was require. The Lamb of God was sacrifice for your sins once and for all, but you must confess your sins nonetheless.

"if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous" (1 John 2:1). John did not believe your future sins were forgiven.

"If[a "must to do"] we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1:9)
---Ramon on 1/25/08

Repenting of sin will NOT save anyone, but repenting (turning to Christ) will save you.
What makes mankind think he can repent of sin to save himself? If this were so, we wouldnt need Christ. Mankind will repent of sin over and over till the day he dies and never will overcome sin. Its Christ who over came sin for you. Believe on HIM, not the flesh. He was wounded for your transgressions, HE set you free.....believe it. This is the Gospel and the only Gospel.
---duane on 1/25/08

You're preaching an incomplete gospel, duane.
One of your own making and interpretation of sin.
While Jesus paid the price for our sin, your sin must be repented of. Without repentance there is no salvation. And if you've never repented or repented, acknowledged your sin when you received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then are you really saved?
---Cindy on 1/25/08

Mima::IMPUTE is to blame, or lay blame.Sin is a transgression against God.To whom we are accountable & this can only be forgiven by Contrition,confession & a sincere desire not to offend God again. You make it sound automatic & hence misleading.Its like speaking with a forked tongue.
---Emcee on 1/25/08

Although the Lord delivered us from past sins and is our righteousness too many have forgotten to fear him and no longer are ashamed when they sin. Even Paul wrote not to boast against the branches. The Lord can remove his grace as he did with Saul when people get haughty.
---Frank on 1/25/08

Since we have to do something, if we live, then we had better not do evil. So we should do good. That is natural if we believe in Jesus. We would want to be like him, imitate him. But works make no difference to salvation. You can go to Heaven without good works. Righteous is dirty rags. (Isaiah) In fact putting any merit on our good works leads us to spiritual sin, pride.

There's someone here that should be consciously ashamed for not only using others names to blog with but for posting prayer requests on the site using others name for purposes of humiliation.
I truly believe this person is demon possessed.
---Cindy on 1/24/08

I like---duane's answer to this question in fact it is very self explanatory the way he explained it.
---Mima on 1/24/08

Sin was imputed to Christ, His righteousness was imputed to us. (The great exchange.) He was wounded for our transgressions. Sin is not counted against us. If sin were counted against us, there would be no salvation, much less righteousness, for we all live in a body of sin and death.
---duane on 1/24/08

A quick look at Scripture. Romans4:7-8
7-Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
This speaks to the Jewish people, whose sins were covered
8-Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
This speaks to the Christians to whom God will not impute( charge to our accounts)
sins.--- and this(not imputing sin to us) keeps us from being accountable for our sins. Hence our ability to live in sin without the accountability of that sin.

The claim that we cannot sin makes Paul a liar for saying sin in him caused him to do that which he wouldn't.
The knowledge of the law should show people they sin and the Spirit should lead them to daily repentence. As Paul said, I die daily.
Although we be under grace we still have to repent of sins. We were saved from past sins and have to combine good works to faith along with repenting.
---Frank on 1/22/08

False christianity makes everything a sin.
Real christianity says Christ did away with sin. HE became sin for us. HE forgave us while we were yet sinners.We are the forgiven...its finished..
---duane on 1/21/08

God did not give us grace, so that we would abuse it, he gave it, because of his love for us.If we love him back, we will not sin. If we do sin, we are quick to repent, and turn from that sin. If we cannot overcome the sin, we fast until we do. Jesus is coming back for a bride that is spotless, and pure. Chaste. Judgement begins at the house of God. Let it begin in us. Judge yourself, that you be not judged. WE can not have a clean conscience, if sins reigns in us. Jesus wants us to be free from sin.

Do not fail to remember that repent means to turn away. Let us not lay again the foundation of repentance, but let us move onto perfection. If you fall get up and remember what caused you to fall and avoid it. If we walk in the light we shall not fall, but if in darkness we shall continually fall for we can not see were we go. That is what Christ came to do. Show us were we are falling so we can avoid it.

AMEN Rebecca,

Believe Me, If He's Willing to Save & Forgive Me, Theirs Hope for anyone!

Would you please give me the Scripure that says you are to constantly forgive yourself for your sins?
Love covers a multitude of sins.
Love your neighbor as yourself.

But where does it say to forgive yourself?

Do you repent to yourself?
God does the forgiving when we do the asking.
That is such easy believism theology.
Sin and be sure to forgive yourself. After all, you may fall again this weekend. But forgive yourself on Monday.
---Rebekah on 1/18/08

Of course. All Christians should feel a need to repent and be ashamed of sinning against a good and Holy God. But it does no good to carry them around - we are to give them to our Heavenly father who is faithful to forgive us our sins.

Yet remembering He will not be mocked....

we must repent and ask for our sins to be forgiven and God reads your heart - what is done in secret will one day be shouted from the roof tops

bec. christianity make everything a sin that is why there is no peace.
---noah on 1/18/08

I was just telling someone here the other day Quit beating yourself up for something God has Forgiven you For & that i know how hard it can be for us to forgive our selves, BECAUSE of the Shamefullness, Being ashamed for what one has done is a Good thing, But to continue to dwell on it is Unhealthy.
---Duane_M on 1/18/08

For a long time I was. But I realized that if I keep on remindig myself of the things I did in the past I will never get ahead. I know my Father forgave me, he doesn't even remember my sins...there is no reason for me to dwell on them. I am not saying that I sin freely, by no means, I just live what the word says: I focus on the things that are ahead of me just like Paul did.When I do something stupid I am sad but I take it to God and leave it at the cross.

I used to be, but found out that there is therefore now NO condemation for those who are in Christ Jesus, for the law of the Spirit of life has set me free from the law of sin and death. I let the Holy Spirit convict me of my sins, when he does, I repent and show Fruit of my repentense, I forgive myself, then go on.
---Donna9759 on 10/24/06

Yes I have been consciously ashamed of my sins. I would find myself confessing them over and over. Then one day as I was talking to God and once again feeling guilty about a sin and confessing it again, God spoke strongly to my heart and said "what are you speaking of?" It was then that I knew that HE truly forgives and FORGETS as far as the east is from the west! Praise God for His mercy and forgiveness!
---NV_Barbara on 10/24/06

(Romans 8:1)(Romans 8:14-16). God says He will forgive us of all of our sins, if we honestly confess them(1 John 1:6-10), so one need not be ashamed anymore. Only the one's outside of Christ(this includes backslidden Christian's), which is the same as being outside of His Word, His Truth(because Christ is the Word, the Truth), outside of His commandments, have condemnation. God Bless.

One of the hardest things for us to do is to forgive ourselves our sins. When others ask about how they can forgive themselves - I ask how can we not. If God can forgive us who are we to not forgive ourselves. Easier said then done.

Yes I am consciously ashamed of my sins but not continiously! Once I have confessed my sins and I believe that God has wiped clean the slate, the shame fades away and peace fills my soul. P
