Will Jesus Take Me Back

I was a born again Christian. I love the Lord with all my heart. To cut a long story short I fell back into sin and sinned recklessly. I ended up sleeping around with different women and drunkenness amongst other things for many years. Will Christ take someone like me back?

\\The wild donkey does not bray when he has his grass.\\

OTOH, you bray all the time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 11/7/11


Eloy:

Your position is not logical or consistent.

If a born-again believer is incapable of sinning, he cannot reject Jesus. Yet after YOU were born again, you listened to Satan and told Jesus to go away - and were later re-born-again.

From this, one of three things must be true:
1) Born-again believers CAN sin
2) Rejecting Jesus is NOT a sin
3) The first time you were born again, you weren't really, but just thought you were. If you were wrong then, how can you know you're not wrong now?

For your claims here to be true, at least one of the above 3 statements must be true. Which one is it? I happen to believe it is 1 (and agree with John and Paul in this), but since you reject 1, which of 2 and 3 is true?
---StrongAxe on 11/7/11


Eloy, you make no sense as I said before. You now say,
"MarkV, You err, for I said I told him to leave- Big Difference."
You have many problems to take care of. First, you can tell Jesus to leave you, anyone can. But Jesus does not take orders from you. He tells us when we are in Christ, He will never leave us. He said that. Not you.
Second, if you told Him to leave you, were you not rejecting Him? And if you reject Him are you not sinning? You said a born again believer cannot sin. You did. Now you are born again, and say you cannot sin, yet you did before, what is to stop you for doing it again, and then again? just nonesense Eloy. A person does not get born again again every time he sins. More nonesense.
---Mark_V. on 11/7/11


MarkV, You err, for I said I told him to leave- Big Difference. The wild donkey does not bray when he has his grass. It is like my righteous brother Job has said to the Lord after he allowed all of his children to be killed, and he was given a horrible disease, and turned his wife and friends against him. He said to God, "My days not few? Cease, let me alone, that I may take comfort a little before I go, I will not return, to the land of darkness and the shadow of death." And it is like brother Jeremiah said, "Cursed the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bore me be blessed." But until you are born-again you will not understand what this means: "and they loved not their lives up to the death."

\\In reflection, sometimes words and strings of words fly through my mind, and I capture them as in freeze-frames, and sometimes these words and these sounds are words which have never been used before in any earthly language, but nonetheless I will communicate them and do my best to filter them down to man's comprehension.\\

In other words, you hear demons speaking in their own language.

We're not interested in what they have to say.

\\I care not what any clay mistranslates,\\

Yes, you do.

You care DEEPLY about how your or your familiars mistranslate the Bible.

But again, we don't.

---Cluny on 11/6/11




Eloy, you said,
"MarkV, I told my Lord to leave because I listened to Satan when he said that all of the hell"
If you listened to satan and rejected the Lord after been born again the first time, how could you have sinned? You said a born again believer does not sin, and yet you did. How is that possible when you say its not possible? That is what I wanted you to understand. People who are saved still sin, you did. You are a witness to that fact. Yet you claim a born again believer does not sin. You claim to both sides of the contradiction. You need to except one side. And since we know you were born again once and you sinned, that goes to show that born again believers do sin after been saved.
---Mark_V. on 11/6/11


Victor, Jesus is not willing that any should, but rather that all would repent and be saved.
---Eloy on 11/6/11


micha9344, I care not what any clay mistranslates, nor your mocking which is foolishness to you. If the Greek word was the common English mistranslation as you wrongly say, then that would be balsphemy saying Paul whom was an enemy of the church and did chief sin by persecuting many Christians before his conversion, then after his conversion he continued in sin, which contradicts all of scripture and even contradicts his own preaching. Think, How many Christians did he persecute after his sainthood? none. Ok, now think again, How many people did he minister Christ to after his sainthood? very good. End of story. Paul was a proven saint after his conversion, and he also wrote a large part of the New Testament Holy Scriptures, and not any sinner.
---Eloy on 11/6/11


Eloy's litGk:
Mat 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, PRETEND thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
Mat 12:7 But PRETEND ye had known what [this] meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
Rom 6:8 Now PRETEND we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
Rom 8:10 And PRETEND Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin, but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.
--The Greek word is 'ei' translated by scholars throughout the ages as 'if' in these instances and never anything resembling 'pretend'.
Zech 3:2b ...The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan...
---micha9344 on 11/5/11


Eloy, you told us once that you were born again twice.

\\lit.Gk: "PRETEND then I do that which I should not, I confess that the law right.\\

The Greek does NOT have the word "pretend" in it.

If your voices told you this, then they are lying, and if you say this on your own, then YOU are lying.

\\JackB, Claim perfection, for it is the commandment from Jesus Almighty,\\

Claiming to be perfect does not mean that you are, Eloy.

Megalomania is also a sign of mental illness.

At least you admit you hear voices, Eloy.

Please do not reply to my posts unless you're willing to accept the truth.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

MarkV, I told my Lord to leave because I listened to Satan when he said that all of the hell: an adulterous wife and home-wrecker, the kidnapping of my children, the extortion I had to pay, my unpublished Christian book, etc., was all because of Jesus. After I became homeless, and I was assaulted with a litany of serious diseases from Satan, and I was in my second year of chemotherapy and I was on my deathbed one final night where when I closed my eyes I would not be waking to see another day. Then the Holy Spirit instructed me to ask Jesus to come back into my life again. I did, and Jesus not only made me born-again, again, but also healed me of every incurable and fatal disease from Satan. Now, if you are able, accept my witness again, again.
---Eloy on 11/5/11


Peter, Romans chapter 7 details a sinner's life PREconversion, and not a saint's life POSTconversion. Rom.7:16-10 in lit.Gk: "PRETEND then I do that which I should not, I confess that the law right. Then it is now no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me: truly then, I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to perform that which is good I find not: for the good that I want to do I do not, but the evil which I would not, that I do. NOW PRETEND I do what I should not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me." Notice the hypothesis, "Pretend" that Paul uses. Now Please Read of Paul's true POSTconversion life in Romans 7:6+ 8:1,2+ 6:1,2,6,11-16.

JackB, Claim perfection, for it is the commandment from Jesus Almighty, else you will rightly be condemned: "Therefore be you all perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. For by one offering he has perfected for ever them that are sanctified." Mt.5:48+ Hb.10:14.
---Eloy on 11/4/11


I agree with so much here, and I'm truly glad to see so many agree. The Father, and we along with Him, rejoice in all that come to Him. Be blessed.
---Chria9396 on 11/4/11


Cluny, yes Cluny I hear many voices, and one voice that I hear is a voice from Cluny, but I don't listen to that voice, nor do I listen to any voices like it: instead I command that foolish voice to get right with God, else the foolish voice will remain in delusion and never have the sane and peaceful mind, nor the learned and refined voice which comes from obeying Christ and obeying his instructive message preached from us Christians.
---Eloy on 11/4/11


Jesus told us to forgive 7 x 70. I cant imagine God would expect man to forgive more than He is willing to.

Eloy, if you could possibly answer a simple question without condemning for asking, here is what you told Peter:

", press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. A saint is not a forgiven sinner, nor a repenting sinner, but instead a saint is a new sinless life, a well-doer, godly, righteous, holy, blameless, pure, innocent, and perfect"

How can you be correct when you claimed that you were born again twice? If you were born again once, and you were what you say a saint should be, why did you have to be born again, again? That's your believe, contradicting what you just said. Don't you see your error? The first time should had been it, if what you say is true, but it is not.

What you're saying is that you're hearing voices and are expressing what you hear in word salad.

Neither are signs of good mental health.

On the other hand, the Bible says, "God has given us a spirit of a sound mind."

\\Strongax, Yes, I favor the passion and the emotion found within the old English.\\

But you're not using Old English, Eloy. That sounds like this:

Nu sculon heireigen hefonrices weard.

It's not even Middle English. "What that Aprille with his shoures soote."

You are simply using non-standard contemporary English.

Were you using a more formal diction, you would not be using modern neologisms like "dis" or "disser."

But that's because your actions and words show you to be sinuous.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Eloy: An excellent reply! I am happy with that, but I have a question that perhaps you can help me with,

Righteousness is ours indeed. However, hen I read Romans 7:19 'the good that I would do, I do not', I feel that Paul as well felt that despite his desire to good, something not good would 'escape'

It is that which I feel as well - at the end, I see that what good I desire to do is somehow mixed with something not good, or not so good. So I feel that the sin of Adam, while defeated, is not yet quite dead.But Eloy, I's so nice we can discuss this so politely!
---Peter on 11/4/11


Eloy:

If you wish to communicate with someone, you must use a language both of you understand- otherwise at worst, communication cannot occur, and at best, confusion occurs about what is being communicated.

I appreciate that you like the sound of "whom" better than "who". Unfortunately, "whom" has never been correct in a subjective context, not in Elizabethan English, not in King James English, not in formal modern English, and not in modern English slang.

It is correct in an objective context (e.g. "God saved those to whom his grace was given") but never in a subjective one ("God saved those who are chosen"). This is a basic rule of English grammar going back centuries.
---StrongAxe on 11/4/11


I cant argue with that Eloy. But I do not claim perfection. Im thankful that 1 John 1:9 still applies to me so that when I am weak and tempted and I fall, I can get back up again.
---JackB on 11/4/11


Strongax, Yes, I favor the passion and the emotion found within the old English. Each person has their own particular style of communicating with others. In reflection, sometimes words and strings of words fly through my mind, and I capture them as in freeze-frames, and sometimes these words and these sounds are words which have never been used before in any earthly language, but nonetheless I will communicate them and do my best to filter them down to man's comprehension. The word "whom" is a very powerful word which focuses in on the individual as the source of the subject, with the "m" giving closure, and the word "who" is much more lax and open and is a less powerful term having no ending consonant.

Peter, forgiveness is for the guilty, one coming to Christ: forgiveness is not for the innocent, one in Christ. Paul said, forget those things which are behind, and press forward onto those things which are ahead, press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. A saint is not a forgiven sinner, nor a repenting sinner, but instead a saint is a new sinless life, a well-doer, godly, righteous, holy, blameless, pure, innocent, and perfect. This is the gospel, and not miscalling that what God himself has sanctified and made clean and holy, still undone or a sinner. Whom the Son has set free, is free indeed: not some free, but wholy free. Please read the verses I posted earlier.
---Eloy on 11/4/11


JackB, Why would you ever choose to do wrong, if you were righteous? It is not likely that you would do wrong, when you are doing right. You cannot serve two master, Christ and sin, and that is why true conversion and committment to Christ is important. When you really love Jesus, then you will do exactly what he commands, not just because it is right to obey God, but you will obey because it is your whole desire to please him and make him happy because you truly love him and he lives in you.

\\Cluny: "Pride goes before a fall." A common misunderstanding of scripture...\\

I was aware that the common proverb was not an exact quote from Scripture when I used it. My intention was to quote the common proverb.

Wrong. Since our souls have a beginning IN TIME, they are therefore NOT eternal. Not even yours.

Only GOD is eternal.

\\ And you already know that I am a Spirit-filled Christian whom translates the Holy Scripture from the original tongues,\\

I know that you do wildly inaccurate translations of the scriptures because you are clearly unfamiliar with the original languages.

Eloy: I do not want to offend in any way, as we are both believers.

I just wanted to say that in the process of being made righteous, forgiveness is included

I do not mean you need forgiveness each moment, I just mean it is good we remember the price at which we were bought.

Also, when I look back at most months, while I can't say 'it was a sin', I can see a decision which was not 'for the glorification of God' - meaning it was, an innocent decision, but not the decision that God would have wanted of me (Matt 5:48) 'made perfect'

Eloy, we agree, except in which word we will use.

I, 'of little faith' prefer to use 'forgiveness'. You, 'of greater faith' can use the 'righteousness'

Blessings
---Peter on 11/4/11


Well Eloy, I pray that when Im your age and I do wrong my heart isnt so hardened and proud that I can no longer hear the Spirit tell me that I need to repent. I also hope that I live my life with the same meekness and lowliness that Christ did and not think that I am past the point of needing forgiveness.

I would never want to become a stumblingblock for my younger brothers and sisters.

Peter, Mature Christians do not walk in forgiveness, instead we walk in righteousness. When a person is convicted by the Holy Spirit, the guilty person will humble themself and repent in shame and pray begging Christ for forgiveness of their sins, and pray for restoration and salvation from being condemned. Then Christ forgives the penetant, washes away "ALL" sin, heals, and completely re-creates a brand new creation which has "NO" sin nor even any remnant trace of sin in the new creation. This new life is not merely a forgiven life, but it is a godly life, Christ's sinless life living in us in which no sin nor condemnation is existant. Please Read- Hebrews 5:13-6:2.

Eloy:

You said: I know that "whom" is the objective case of "who", and now often replaced by "who".

You are entirely correct in this. This, sadly, is sloppiness that has been creeping into American English (another similar one is "They invited he and I" which should be "They invited him and me").

However, you seem to always reverse this, using the objective case when the subjective case is called for, for example, in I am a proven born-again Christian whom lives in Christ...

"whom" is subject of the verb "lives", and should be in the subjective case (i.e. "who"), and not in the objective case (i.e. "whom").

micha9344, I am an old soul. And I commonly utilize earlier english which is much more accurate then the modernized english. So Yes, I intended to use "whom", and not "who". I know that "whom" is the objective case of "who", and now often replaced by "who". But I mostly prefer not to replace it, for "whom" gives much more exclusive or restrictive emphasis to the specific subject, and displays a more intrinsic accountable ownership, whereas "who" is less exclusive and a more liberal terminology. Much like the related words "the" compared to "a", as in, "the man" is much more definite than "a man" being less definite.

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Gordon, Peter wasn't speaking to the world. The Epistle is written to the beloved, "....to those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ" (v. 2:1). "Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of remember). He tells them to be mindful of the words the holy prophets and they had spoken. It was Peter's pastorial concern (1 Peter5:32) He believed his readers were pure Christians. Very different then the false teachers of (2:10-22). Peter also sought to impress on his readers the truth they already knew so that their spiritual discernment would be able to detect and refute the purveyors of false teachers.

Definately yes! The moment the prodigal son came to his senses and decided to back to his father and ask for forgiveness, the door opened to welcome him. God is more interested in having us back than to loose us forever in hell. God loves you more than you know . make up your mind to sin no more and asking for forgiveness is enough for God once it's genuinely from your heart. My advice is don't run alone join a group that believes in the bible and get support. we all need it

MarkV, But, Mark, I thought true Saints couldn't perish and lose their Salvation? If they can't, why would Paul warn them about such a thing happening IF his warning was only meant for the Saints? The Apostle Paul meant the entire human race when he said "us-ward" (KJV). It'd be like a Pastor preaching to his Congregation of Saints, and just admonishing them, on the side, to "Go out after the Service and share the Gospel with the lost because GOD wants them to be redeemed from Eternal Damnation!" It's the same thing. How small, Mark, to think GOD wants people to end up in Hell. This is the kind of twisted thinking that results from believing in OSAS. If you believe a falsehood, you're set up to believe more.

Just a quick point for you to ponder. During the time that you "sinned recklessly," did you feel any remorse for what you were doing, and did you feel God's hand of discipline on you while you were in that condition? If you answer NO to these questions, then you probably weren't "saved" to start with. The good news is that if you will repent now and ask God to forgive you it will be done. God will NOT allow His children to continue unrebuked and undisciplined in sin.

I just want to make a comment on my last reply here. I said that GOD values all human life, and HE does! But, for those who would argue that by recounting how many people GOD had put to death, especially as recorded in the Old Testament, and that includes the many who perished in the Great Flood of Noah's time, That those people were slain because of SIN. But, in the Beginning, it was not GOD's intention that people would die, especially in such ways. It was mankind's own willingness to get into SIN that brought about death and GOD's Judgments on humanity. Even GOD's own Son was put to Death because of Sin. OUR SIN.

The Scriptures say in II PETER 3:9 "The LORD is not slack concerning His Promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance." GOD is the One Who took the time to place life in the womb of the mother. Abortion is a SIN and a Crime of a highest degree because GOD values all life of humanity. Therefore, He is willing that none perish into Eternal Damnation, but, is willing that anyone who will repent and turn from their sin and turn to HIM, HE will in no wise cast out. HIS Heart is BIGGER concerning Forgiveness than ours.

Victor, YES! YAHUSHUA (JESUS CHRIST) will take you back. God the Father, through His Son, will take you back. As long as you mean it truly in your heart that you are willing to turn from your sin and will live in HIS Ways of Love, Truth, Holiness, Purity, etc., then, He will very much take you back. The Devil is a Liar, and he does not want you to go back to GOD. But, GOD is infinitely BIGGER than Satan, and HE can strengthen you to stand in HIM. Just be willing to turn away from Sin, (and it will be difficult at times). Live by the Truth of ROMANS 6. Remember the Prodigal of LUKE 15:11-32. God is like that father in the Parable, to the repentant backslider.

Victor, many answers are great. Pierre's answer seems the best to me. I agree with him very much. But also agree with Blogger9211 when he said,

"The more critical question is, did God the Father select you in the first place"

Make your salvation sure, we are called to do and that is what you should do first.
Do you have a true love for Christ?
Does the Spirit speak to your spirit that you are a child of God?
Make your salvation sure. Then follow Christ.

And of course you have been selected?
Then, if you don't mind, "Show Me the Carfax"

Victor, I suspect that all of us have on one way or another fallen away. You may have fallen away in a 'big' way, but most weeks I realize that things I've been doing were not right with God.

God does not differentiate between 'big' and 'small' sins. Both are deadly.

So you are no different from all Christians who sin even once
---Peter on 10/24/11


Many whom cheat on their spouse say, "I'm sorry, and I promise to be faithful: Please give me another chance", but at the first opportunity to cheat they yield again and betray their spouse. I hope you learned that sin destroys, and because of sin Christ was nailed to the cross. You cannot play with God, he does not wink at sin nor does he entertain hypocrisy. You cannot serve sin and the Holy Spirit too. You must be serious with God, and surrender up your life 100% to Jesus, and ask him for his forgivenenss, and to restore you to a right relationship with him in holiness, and you must choose to serve Christ now and forever always. Repent whole-heartedly, and get truly born-again, and enjoy the eternal relationship with Jesus.
---Eloy on 10/24/11


Victor, 1st John 1:9 tells us "IF we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness."

Once you do that, try to ask God WHY you back slid like that. Let God get to the root of WHY you did it so that He can reach deep down inside of you and heal you.

I went down that same path one time and God forgave me and restored me, but He also healed me of the rejection I had inside of me that caused me to do that in the first place. "Seek the Lord while He may be found." "He will be gracious to you at the sound of your cry."

YES ! Jesus will take back someone like you. Remember he has promised to forgive your sins if you will comfess them and repent from them, no matter how messed up your life seems to you at this time. So don't waste another minute but get on your knees, tell him how sorry you are and get up a new man!
---Pierre on 10/24/11


if you did not understand that jesus (assuming that is your understanding of who christ is) will "take you back", you probably were not "taken" on the first go-round.
---aka on 10/24/11


The Lord's Prayer states: "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.If you can pray that truthfully about your trespasses, you will be forgiven by God.

Of course. He's in the sin-forgiving business.

Have you not heard?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

The prodigal son ran away and did the same as you AND WAS ACCEPTED BACK with great joy by the father. THIS is what GOD IN TOTALITY (Jesus of the N.T.) is like.

Colossians 2:9 "For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily".

In the O.T., the Jews had only the Father to worship. When Jesus came to earth, GOD IN ENTIRETY was revealed to humanity.

Now that you have returned, a "solid food" education is what you must pursue (you've already learned "milk", 1 Corin. 3:2) and the "doctrine of Christ" (Jesus's 'sin sacrifice' gospel,...and also 'total God').

"he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son" (2 John 1:9). All verses from the RSV.
---more_excellent_way on 10/23/11


Victor, of course God will forgive you. That's what he does best. Jesus tells us to forgive others seventy times seven, so we can't expect any less of God, don't you think? God bless you! :)

God the Father never throws his adopted children away. The more critical question is, did God the Father select you in the first place?
