He continues to take away our sins while we live. ---MarkV. on 10/6/10

Mark
I was wanting your definition of the words "take Away".
For example, Some think that it is talking about forgiveness of sin, and some think that it is speaking of attonement.

Also,
Thanks for the typing tips in the October blog.
I was wondering how you rascals did that fancy writing.

"I am crucified with Christ. Nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me..." Gal.2:20

Paul wrote this. But what was it all about?

"I am crucified.... Christ liveth in me..."???

Jesus said:

"That wich is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. ...Ye must be born AGAIN." John3:6-7

Romans 8 explains this in practical life. Can't quote it because of the word limit, but please read it :)

"For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." Rom.8,13

There was a man who worked in a store.
Someone told his boss, he was stealing.
Was he guilty of this? I know so!
Just, as we are all guilty.
More than that, you should have known this too!

So, what did this man do?
Instead of trying to make it up or work it out with his boss!
He turned to the ones who owe his boss.
Finding forgiveness in them, by forgiving them!

Why, would The Lord say good job?
What a thing for The Lord to tell a Thief.
Luke16:1-8

Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

knowledge of christ is not a Christian, religion is not a Christian, and attending a church is not a Christian: for Satan knows Christ, Satan has religion, and Satan attends a church. And you will know them by their fruits, for from the fruit the tree is known. Christians do not lie, and Christians do not smoke, sinners do.
---Eloy on 10/6/10


David, the Hebrews and 1 John passages you gave are correct. Nothing wrong with any of them. He came to take away our sins."
When Christ came into our lives, He took away all of our sins. He continues to take away our sins while we live. He continues to sanctify us all through our lives. He is the only One that could do that. Through the law, we could not take away our own sins because we could not stop from sinning. Through one Sacrifice He did what we could not do. Only a sinless Sacrifice could be offered for our redemption. He is our redemption.
---MarkV. on 10/6/10


God is no hypocrite

Matthew 18:21,22

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.


Youre gonna have some here that will suggest that means you arent saved if one sin has a stronghold on your life. These will be the same people that claim they have no sin in their life.(1 John 1:8).

One day youll be free from the sin that plagues you. I smoked as a Christian for almost 15 years. Just keep relying upon Gods mercy and grace and forgive yourself as well.
---JackB on 10/6/10




David, you are funny, because I do not remember telling you not to use Hebrews.
---MarkV. on 10/5/10

Ok Mark,
I'll chalk it up to a misunderstanding.

Since I can use Hebrews, tell me what is meant by the words "Take Away Sin" in (Hebrews 10:4) & (1 John 3:5).

(Hebrews 10:4)
"For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should "Take away sins."

(1 John 3:5)
"And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins."
---David on 10/6/10


MarkV, the sinner condemns themself by committing their own sin, whether or not any of us saints are present to expose them.

Mat 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Mat 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.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Luk 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.


And no one is sinless, without sin!
---TheSeg on 10/5/10


According to the doctrine of sanctification, the Holy Spirit works within us to help us grow to maturity in Christ.

As to sin, it is not possible for anyone to achieve the sinlessness found only in Christ Jesus.

Even the Apostle Paul expressed a frustation that he was incapable of doing good in accordance to what the law demanded.

Ro 7:18f For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

Unfortuately cultists believe we can achieve the righteousness of Christ through the power of Holy Spirit but these people are blind to their own sinfulness.

---RICHARD on 10/5/10


Faith-builder, you were doing so well until you said,
"Walking in obedience give us the Holy Spirit which is the Lord Spirit and which help us from sinning."
Walking in obedience does not gives us the Holy Spirit, being born again by the Spirit, we receive the endwelling of the Spirit. Which in turns teaches us what sin is and convicts us of that sin in order that we should repent and turn away from that sin. Whatever sin it is. But if you are a faith-builder, you need to know the correct wording so that other do not get the idea that obedience saves anyone. Only God saves, by Grace through faith.

Please to go and read Hebrews 10. Continuing doing the same sins means that you constantly put Jesus Christ on the Cross. Do you love HIM. He was no SPIRIT on that Cross neither was He a LAMB or a BULLOCK. He was a Human Being and if you love him them stop doing the same sins over and over. Put your weaknesses before God and read your bible. The word of God is what will keep us from doing the same sin over and over. Walking in obedience give us the Holy Spirit which is the Lord Spirit and which help us from sinning. The Imagination of our heart we cannot prevent but the actual doing we can. Hugs and blessings
---Faith_Building_Minis on 10/5/10


Cluny's answer was base on Scripture. Just as so many others who answer correctly. All come short of the glory of God, especially Eloy with his condemnation and self-righteous attitude that he is beyond correction. We all fail. "For whatever is Born of God overcomes the world And this is the victory that has overcomes the world-our Faith." Not our works. "Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" 1 John 5:4,5.
---MarkV. on 10/5/10


Do not attack Cluny too much. I don't think his comment is ideal, but all of us, as Christians, know that there are some sins that we commit, WITHOUT WANTING TO. That does not mean they are not sins.
We are to fight sin all our life, but the few times we err do not mean we are not of God. God desires that we fight sin all our life
---peter3594 on 10/5/10


"1 John also says that if you say you have no sin, you deceive yourself, and the truth [Jesus] is NOT IN YOU"-Cluny

The topic in 1 John 1:8-10 is NOT wether we fall in sin or not, but what will be the consequences of our acts IF we have sinned.

Do we try to hide or excuse it? Or do we confess it?

It's the same as what's written in Prov.28:13:

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy."

But the best illustration of this was given in the parable about the pharisee and the taxcollector (read Luke 18:9-14!!)

Cluny, if your god cannot help you to overcome the sins of your life, I'm afraid you haven't found the right one yet....

Cluny, you post more falsehood. For the scripture reads: "If we say that we have fellowship with him, BUT WE WALK WITH THE DARKNESS, WE LIE INDEED NOT DOING THE TRUTH." I Jn. 1:6. This is the subject: sinners walking in sin, but deceptively say they are Christian. The subject is not the blasphemous lie that the saints are the sinners, for we saints are proven to be righteous and the dissers are proven to be sinners.

David, you are funny, because I do not remember telling you not to use Hebrews.
What was funny this morning was when I read what you said about sins of Omission. That they do not lead to death. So they don't count against you. So you are really sinless after all. Now that was funny.
Second, I never tell anyone not to use any of the books in Scripture. That would be me preventing you from knowing the Truth when in fact I want you to know the Truth. It would be like saying, don't read the Gospels. Sorry David, maybe you misunderstood me. But it is funny you would bring that up.

---MarkV. on 10/4/10

You are funny.

---David on 10/5/10


Eloy, you call me a sin supporter, it is because when you sin against others here I still support you when you are right in some other answers. So yes, I'm supporting you a sinner. You say when a person is born of God, they don't sin. You said you were born again twice. The first one you sinned, so you had to be born again. So you got born again the second time when you were sick. So how can you claim when a person is born again they don't sin? You did. Your are an example of a born again person sinning.
---MarkV. on 10/4/10


Eloy - it is true that both the believer and unbeliever as said in the Scripture, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23). So by God's grace, the believer is then transformed from sinner to saint when God justifies him by faith.

But what is untrue is that a sheep or wheat (who represents God's elect) and the goat or tares (the reprobate) will always remain as what they are referred to in the Scripture. Meaning, a goat will never be changed to a sheep or the tares into a wheat.

Scripture then tells us that Jacob (whom God loved) is a sheep/wheat and Esau (whom God hated) is a goat/tare. And the cause and effect of this is based on God's election and rejection. See Romans 9.
---christan on 10/4/10


Gwen, so long as we are in the flesh, we will continue to sin till the day we die - that's when the Christian is set free from his body of death. For the unbeliever, he will die in his sin of unbelief in God and be damned in the Lake of fire for all eternity.

For the believer, his sins was already crucified in Christ at Calvary (read Romans 5). The Christian being born of the Holy Spirit by the will of God will now start to struggle with sin whereas the unbeliever will never ever experience this tug of war between his spirit and his flesh as taught by Paul in Romans 7.

MarkV, sin-supporter, Christ's work is proven almighty and manifestedly genuine in saving souls today and transforming sinners into saints, from goats into sheep, and from tares into wheat. The mark of God is a righteous life. And just as when Christ in person walked upon the earth proving his words and works in the sight of all, and the blasphemers then dissed him and his righteous deeds, so too we saints today prove our words and works in the sight of all, and the sinners blapheme us and our righteous deeds.

But which sin is too great for God to help us to overcome?
****

If one is willfully sinning and repeatedly asking for forgiveness each and every time they are sinning EVENTUALLY God will no longer continue to forgive

if one is truly SEEKING God then God will remove the sin

SADLY mainstream christianity has been taught that God overcomes all repeated sin ...their idea's are that they can continuosly sin the same sin because Christ has forgiven it all on the cross - this idea directly contradicts scripture

in essence they have BECOME the sinner with their lips dripping the name of Christ ...Christ will say to them I never knew you
---Rhonda on 10/4/10


Jesus said to forgive " seven times seventy." If we have a sin that is habitual, then we should pray for His help to overcome it, instead of continually sinning & repenting.

David 2,
Hebrews explain's the sacrifice, v. 12, "But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sin forever, sat down at the right hand of God" Did you get that? V. 14, "For by one offering He has perfect forever those who are being sanctified"
Now lets look at your passage where Jesus is speaking about sin,
John 8:34, "whoever commits sin is a slave of sin" He was speaking to Jews who believed He was the Messiah but were not covered by that One Sacrifice. Why? Because Jesus had not died yet. There was no sacrifice yet. But after He sacrificed Himself, and those who were lost committed to His Sacrifice, they would be covered once for all time. V. those who are being sanctified.
---MarkV. on 10/4/10


David, sorry for breaking the news to you and Eloy, that there is no one sinless who is alive, or, whoever was, with the exception of Jesus Christ. Hebrews tells us, that Israel use to sacrifice over and over for their sins according to the Law. And we are told that "He (Jesus) takes away the first that He may establish the second." the law of sacrifice He took away, and establish His own sacrifice in its place. "By that will (the will of the Father) we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." The reason was because no one can keep the whole law so could not be save by the Law and have life. Only by the one sacrifice of the sinless Savior could we be save.
---MarkV. on 10/4/10


Gwendolyn, When you know that your sin personally nailed innocent Jesus to the cross to the death, then why would you ever do it again? True repentance is just that, complete turning away from sin and living in total obedience to Christ: serving him not from a sense of guilt that you may have, but because you love him and you truly desire to please him with all that is within you.

Mark
I would not expect you to understand, For you do not believe what Jesus taught in (John 8:34)
"Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin."

You say that you sin, but you are not a servant of sin.
You blame your body for your sin, when Paul taught(Romans 6:13) that the body is merely the instrument of sin.

Jesus says, if you chose to believe him, that sin comes from the heart.
(Matthew 15:19)
"For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies"
---David on 10/3/10


MarkV ..."You cannot mean that when you were a slave to sin, (lost) you were trying to please God. The Bible says that those lost do the desires of their father the devil. How could you be trying to please God?"

This raises a puzzle, because we would most of us say that salvation is by Faith alone, not by Works. So those who attempt salvation by Works are not saved. In other words, they are still lost. But they are surely trying to please God.

That conflicts with what you rightly say.

I wonder if this means that those who "try to please God" are not lost, but not fully saved .. sort of work in progress?
---alan8566_of_uk on 10/3/10


Thank you MarkV, for the blessing and the comment.
Coming from one so well grounded in Father's word, they are appreciated. As we both know, and will readily admit, all praises are due the Father alone. Any truth that I am blessed to share is His, only the mistakes are mine. Thank you for sharing the truth that He has given you, I for one am bless by it. Remember this Mark, as Father's Children we can not teach anyone anything thing that is spiritually discerned or conveyed. The most that we can do is help others to find truth within themselves, by sharing the truth that we ourselves have been blessed to embrace. Keep sharing and caring MarkV, with love tempered by compassion as your incentive.

David how does sin cause death. I ask with a sincerity because I suffer from the same.
---homer on 10/1/10

(2 Corinthians 7:10)
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

Homer
All relationships, whether they are one with God or with man, if founded on Love, will weather any storm.(Matthew 7:24)
The greater your love for someone, the harder to hurt that someone.

Jesus preached Love, because it is our greatest weapon against sin, against Satan.
When one is in a relationship with God, one of repentance, their love for God will grow so much that sin becomes unbearable for them, causing them to weep, to greive and eventually die to sin.

"Dangerous implying meaning of one scripture while dismissing ignoring other scriptures" -Rhonda

Agree in principle, but I didn't quote just 1 text.

"or Holy Scripture has lied when it states you are a LIAR and have no truth if you say you have no sin"-Rhonda

That text (1John1:9)is not about sinning or not, but about confessing it or to try to hide it WHEN you have sinned (see the verse above, v.8! And also Prov.28:13. And the parable about the taxcollector and the pharisee, Luk.15:9-14). Both were sinners (and believers!), but only the one confessing it, was forgiven.)

Even true repentance does not negate the consequences which are part of God's law and apparantly what you are seeking to avoid.
God always gives mercy before judgement. If you have truly repented but are struggling "with this body of death" than mercy will be shown.
However if you are sinning and repenting only in words to keep on sinning you are stepping on the third rail brother!

Eloy, if that is the case then your tree must be cut at the root. But the context of that passage has nothing whatsoever to do with you are me but, but maybe you since you said you were a prophet, self-proclaim one at that, and the passages on the good and bad tree are talking about false prophets (v.15,16) right before it talks about the trees. And it says about those prophets,
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits" You use this passages to condemn other believers, but it is talking about prophets and you are a prophet.

Thank you Bill Bila5659, my sentiments exactly.
"In order for God to forgive sin, two conditions are necessary. [1] A life must be taken as a substitute for that of a sinner, and [2] the sinner must come to God's sacrifice in a spirit of repentance and faith. So, by faith sinners are forgiven." Amen Catherine.
That substitutional sacrifice was of course Jesus, "And [believers] know that He was manifested to 'take away' our sins, and in [unity with] Him, there is no sin." 1Jo 3:5
As concerning the believer errors in thought and/or action. There is an ongoing renewing of the mind. Once an error is recognized and acknowledged, and the truth that exposed it is truly embraced, the error no longer has a place within.

If I sin the same sin over and over again will God keep forgiving me for the same sin. Gwendolyn on 9/27/10

If you are fighting against this sin, and you do not do what you want to do, that sin is simply there to reveal to you that you are a slave to sin.

Gwendolyn:

Jesus said in John 8:34 that "he who (habitually) commits sin is a slave of sin". I have inserted the word habitually, because it appears in the Greek language in the conjugation of the verb. Many of the passages that have been quoted to you have this same conjugation in the Greek. In the old KJV, it appeared as the "th" added to the verb, like "he that sinneth".

Habitually sinning means that your lifesyle is to sin and to be reckless. This lifestyle does not reflect God's new creation in your life. Therefore, if this is your lifestyle, you cannot be born again. However, if this is not your lifestyle, then perhaps you have a stronghold in your life.

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? BE NOT DECEIVED: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers...etc (thieves, drunkards, revilers...) shall inherit the kingdom of God." 1.Cor.6:9-10

"Except a man be BORN AGAIN, he cannot see the kingdom of God. ... Except a man be born of water (repentance/justification) and of the Spirit (sanctification), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John3:3,5

This had happende to the christians in Corinth!

"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." 1Cor.6:11

That's how we may "sin no more" :)

One thing is for certain you will continue to sin. Your forgiveness for that sin is also certain if you are saved.

God's command is, Sin Not.

I can tell you what jesus told every person,GO AND SIN NO MORE.
---tom2 on 9/29/10


Jesus did say, "sin no more" (John 8:11). But maybe the adulteress still had her nasty character and desires witch could get her to seek what she got by sinning. But Jesus knew what is possible with God, and Jesus said "no more".

If we get with Jesus, we become one with each other so we are very different than when we were more isolated and independent. God's love is beautifully pure and pleasant and personally caring, making us "tenderhearted" *together* (Ephesians 4:32, 1 Peter 3:8), making us so different than we used to be.

So, if I'm doing the same sin over and over, I'm missing out on this, and God wants to forgive me *and* change me to share like this with Him and all the others.

Rhonda, you said, "sinning against one another is all together different than sinning against God". What you mean "could" be altogether different than what I'm thinking about (c:

David does say to the LORD, "Against You, You only, have I sinned," in Psalm 51:4. And Jesus does say that what we do "to the least" of His brothers and sisters is what we do to Him (Matthew 25:34-46). So, how we sin against one another can be against Jesus. Also, our bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness against each other grieves the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:31-32).

But, by "sinning against one another", maybe you mean doing what someone doesn't like but what doesn't matter to God.

Josef, sinning against one another is all together different than sinning against God

maybe what the poster should have asked for would be the scriptures that backup the LIES of mankind who follow false ministers stating we can continue to sin IN Christs name ...the LIARS who tell so called christians that they can forever sin as long as Christ name is dripping from their lips

there are no scriptures that support we can continously and repeatedly sin the same sin and be forgiven

otherwise christianity would be some contradiction making the so called christian NO DIFFERENT than the wicked

Christ did tell the adulterous to SIN NO MORE

Mima, Donna gave scripture. Whether she believes she is sinless or not, what saith the Lord?

He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.....and all of Romans 6 to go with it.
---Linda on 9/28/10


NO religious book except the Bible teaches that God completely forgives sin [PS. 51:1, 9, Is. 38:17, Heb. 10:17]....In order for God to forgive sin, two conditions are necessary. [1] A life must be taken as a substitute for that of a sinner, and [2] the sinner must come to God's sacrifice in a spirit of repentance and faith. So, by faith sinners are forgiven. "Justified" in Paul's terminology [Romans 3:28]....He is a God of grace and pardon [Neh. 9:17, Dan. 9:9]....Sin involves the denial of the living God from whom human-beings draw their life and existence [Acts 17:28]. And the consequence of this revolt is death and the torments of HELL.

"Then Peter came to Him and said, 'Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?' Jesus said to him, 'I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.'" (Matthew 18:21-22) If God expects us humans to forgive "up to seventy times seven", then I offer that God is willing to be more generous to forgive us, than He expects us to be.

Also, "Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16) God includes us in His process of getting us "healed" so we do not keep on sinning.

---Donna5535 on 9/28/10 are you saying you are sinless?
---mima on 9/28/10


Here's your answer right in Scirpture:

6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning.
---Donna5535 on 9/28/10


Gwendolyn, The Father will ask no more from us than He is willing to give, and we are instructed to forgive upon repentance, as many times as we are asked.
"Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him." Luke 17:3,4
"Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?"Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven." Mat 18:21,22
However with true repentance, a sincere change of mind, comes reformation, a corresponding change in attitude and actions.
---Josef on 9/28/10


It comes down to, do you believe god or not.
Knowing this God said everyone is guilty before him. Everyone!
This will be true, until you hear otherwise!

James said if you keep the law and yet offend in one point, you are guilty of all!
Say you are only committing ten thousand kinds of sins.
And you stop all but one! You are guilty of all!
Its not the kind, its sin!

Knowing! That the law is not made for a righteous man!
But for the lawless! You know, ungodly sinners like us!

If you are not sinning, then you dont need Christ!
Now Im not saying be proud of sinning!
But, then again maybe I am!
Because if you feel guilty, well done!

I understand some struggle with this & it weighs heavy on your mind. This scripture helps me when any temptation to sin comes my way. Romans 6. Verse 1 & 2 in particular: What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin,live any longer there in? Some preachers teach that when we sin after salvation, of course we're forgiven when we ask, but we lose some of our rewards. I don't know about this but I know that when you resist temptation to sin you will grow stronger to fight it. Pray, even fast if necessary to get victory over the sin that's controlling you.

-- Gwendolyn :

Sister, Don't be disillusion to the Truth between BEING FORGIVEN and RECEIVING FORGIVENESS !!!

Yes, We've been forgiven by God for the multitude of our sins(Crucified with Christ on the Cross)... but unless man repents & accepts the Way to Salvation, he'll never receive forgiveness !!!

Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.

Open their eyes, and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are Sanctified by Faith that is in Me... as Spoken by Christ to Saul/Paul in Acts 26:18
---Shawn.M.T on 9/27/10


1 John 1:9 If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. There are no conditions on this verse, or limitations.

Also, read Romans 7, and see how the Apostle Paul struggled with repeated sin.
