MarkV You are not declaring the Gospel. You are declaring the doctrine of TULIP by Calvin.

The Gospel is:
1Cr 15:1-4
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand,
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

I have also pointed out that some things you say we teach are not correct. If I ever say something you do not teach please correct me.

markv, I am done with you. you are a false prophet. everyone here knows it. all you talk about is your "elect". I am sick of you and your false message. you deceive your self and every person on christianet see what you are.
---shira4368 on 1/27/14


Shira, you say, "maybe nana is like others who tire of false gospel. we read it over and over in almost every single blog. the new testinment is about Jesus Christ and how He died for all mankind."
If you believe it is a false gospel, and it bothers you, that you cannot stand it anymore, why do you keep answering? You say you are not going to answer, and I find you everywhere complaining.
You don't get it. We are commanded by the Lord to give the gospel Truth to those who can hear. We are not commanded to make you believe it, that's up to God.
Sinful man is condemned, without hope, heading to hell, they are under the curse, if God does not draw them away from that path, they remain condemned. That's the gospel Truth.

The epistles spends almost 100% per cent of it's time dealing with the OT and enlightening us of God's mercy and grace being present from the beginning and yet these fools have gone blind to the Scriptures. So much for claiming they are saved souls by their freewill. What a joke!
---christan on 1/24/14

You are the joke squirt! On the one hand you state that God made them as such, you then turn around and argue with them!
A few days ago I made this statement, " Can't argue with a dog chasing his own tail, only watch and laugh." Guess what Snoopy, you're the dog.
Good thing the Gospels speak so much of God's grace and mercy since you do not. Oh look, there go that pesky tail, go at it boy!

Nana, do you believe you are bringing glory to God when you make comments like you do? All you are doing is giving evidence or show your fruits of someone who believes in free will. You are no different then the rest of your friends. You only gain points from your friends, they love to speak as you do.
---Mark_V. on 1/26/14


Nana, to you I'm reminded by Christ:

"Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." Matthew 7:6

"And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city." Mark 6:11

All the nonsense about OT saints not entering the rest in Christ simply proves that one has completely missed the points written in the epistles.

Abraham (who happens to be an OT saint) was taught to us as the Father of Faith in Romans and Galatians. Now how's that even different from the present saint, who are saved "by grace through faith".

The epistles spends almost 100% per cent of it's time dealing with the OT and enlightening us of God's mercy and grace being present from the beginning and yet these fools have gone blind to the Scriptures. So much for claiming they are saved souls by their freewill. What a joke!
---christan on 1/24/14


Well Christan, since in the OT even the saved kept the sabbath, so they could not enter HIS REST. TODAY, because we are IN CHRIST CRUCIFIED AND RISEN, WE HAVE ENTERED HIS REST, AND ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED TO KEEP THE SABBATH REST.

Also, OT saints did not have their conscience purged from these dead works through Jesus blood by the eternal Spirit.

So sacrificing animals and keeping the sabbath day, now called dead works are done away IN Christ.
---kathr4453 on 1/23/14




"The Lord said of the Israelites "They shall NEVER enter my rest" (even though the works of His lamb were already FINISHED for the eternity dimension)....ALL SAVED???." faithforfaith - you're twisting and turning the Word.

What Scripture says is "For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world." - didn't Abel, Noel, Abraham, Moses believed? Aren't they from the OT?

And who even said "ALL" Israel was saved in the OT? If the word "ALL" is used, it only points to His elect. And not everyone is an elect.
---christan on 1/23/14


It's good to be apologetic to God about your misgivings (good attitude called CONSCIENCE)...God's Spirit will teach you RIGHT WAYS so that your conscience will be CLEAR...Hebrews 9:14 "eternal Spirit...purify your conscience", then your salvation will be complete.

The "living water" is not God's Spirit, it is the "heart of flesh" (caring sentiment of a 'heart of gold') that we each need in order that we are able to learn "goodness" from God's Spirit). Jesus came to earth "as a plan for the fulness of TIME" (the end of the age of time, Ephesians 1)...."He came at the end of the age to put away sin" "and in the age to come, eternal life". JESUS is our ETERNAL sabbath.
---faithforfaith on 1/22/14


The Lord said of the Israelites "They shall NEVER enter my rest" (even though the works of His lamb were already FINISHED for the eternity dimension)....ALL SAVED???.

COMPLETE salvation is AVAILABLE from Jesus AND God's divine Spirit (the Jews of Revelation chose to have ONLY the blood...2 witnesses) they did not ALSO accept the divine Spirit, 1 John 5:8).

"This is He who came by water and blood".

The living water that poured from Jesus's side at the cross (yes, water also POURED from Jesus at the cross) is OUR THIRD witness (God's Spirit does NOT AGREE with the blood messiahship only).

The living water is necessary so that we "neither thirst", Revelation 7:16....ACTS 2:17.
---faithforfaith on 1/22/14


Christan, The NT tells us how much MORE we have today. The blood of animals only COVERED OVER the sin of the flesh. The Blood of Christ has done FAR MORE in reality and daily living.

No one is arguing that OT saints were not saved. They just were not sanctified the way we are today, nor raised up a NEW CREATURE as we are today!


Romans 5:8-10

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 ---much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

BY HIS LIFE means His RISEN life out of death. Read Colossians Chapters 1-3for a more mature understanding of our life IN CHRIST TODAY!
---kathr4453 on 1/22/14


O my goodness!

Who is even arguing about Hebrews 9 and what the context is all about? I certainly know and believe that the "blood of goats and bulls" just covered the sins of OT saints until the final fulfilment of Christ's blood was poured out at Calvary. It was just a shadow of the final sacrifice made by the "lamb of God", the Lord Jesus Christ.

The bottom-line is this: everyone of God's saints (be it the OT or NT or post-NT) are saved the same way. And that's explicitly declared, "For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God."

And that's why it's called, "JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH".
---christan on 1/22/14


Kathr, here is what you say,
"markv, YOU started the argument and arguing when you twisted John 1:11-14. And by continually taking over each and every blog demanding YOUR Calvin doctrine be crammed down everyone's throat,"
I cannot cram down the Truth on anyone who is lost. Only believers understand that God had mercy on them. The lost will never listen to the Truth,
"For the preaching of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us which are saved it is the power of God." (1 Cor. 1:18). No amount of cramming will make them believe. I totally know that. The Truth is for believers, those who are saved already by God's grace. Something you don't understand.

markv, YOU started the argument and arguing when you twisted John 1:11-14. And by continually taking over each and every blog demanding YOUR Calvin doctrine be crammed down everyone's throat, and christen calling everyone a fool who disagrees with you, we all know who starts every argument and then blames others for your behavior.

Not only do you believe in limited atonement, possibly that accounts for your limited understanding.

Jackb, after months of being away laughed that it was the same ol same ol stale manna you keep eating and passing around. You may want to review what happened to manna being kept for more than one day.

---kathr4453 on 1/21/14


God said.

Hebrews 9:13-15
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.


Today our FLESH is not sanctified by goats blood, it's CRUCIFIED with Christ and raised up a NEW Creature.
---kathr4453 on 1/21/14


Ok so now we'll step over Christan's temper tantrum and reiterate in the OT, the blood of bulls and goats could never make anyone PERFECT. They had a CONSCIENCE year after year of SIN. And every year, would go,through the same routine. Also lambs bulls and goats were being slaughtered EVERY single day only to cover sin.

But TODAY is the day of SALVATION, where Christ, once and for ALL, Shed His own blood ONCE and for all and forever dealt with sin. This is called the dispensation of Grace, where TODAY we now live by the life of Christ in us, who's very life IN US is our sanctification. No more law keeping to keep "the flesh" in it's place.

TODAY we walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh as OT saints did.
---kathr453 on 1/21/14


Kathr, you should follow your own words when you say,
"You just like to argue making yourself look foolish in the process, believing yourself to be wise. Scripture warns us of those like yourself. ARROGANT and boastful."
The Bible does warn us of people like you who will find anything to argue about. Each day you wake up for that ritual. It is a habit since the time I came on line.

---christan on 1/21/14


Again Christan, what is your point? Do you believe you have some additional insight or are saying something different?

How about this..

A BODY has been prepared, and through that BODY we are sanctified once and for all. No animal body ever sanctified anyone ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Talk about NOT understanding Hebrews at all.

A NEW and Living way is referring to the NEW Covenant that did not come into place until Jesus Died and rose again.
Do you Understand the meaning of NEW and LIVING WAY? I don't believe you do.

You just like to argue making yourself look foolish in the process, believing yourself to be wise. Scripture warns us of those like yourself. ARROGANT and boastful.

---kathr4453 on 1/20/14


"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." Is this declaration with exception? I'm sure it included the likes of Abel, Noah, Abraham, the OT saints.

Yet we are told they are saved souls. But how? The law couldn't justify the man we're told. Wasn't it because God was gracious toward them too? Is grace only dispensed of in the NT and not the OT?

Christ was indeed the fullness of God's grace when the "Word became flesh" and the reason was simple, "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission." Talk about not understanding Hebrews.
---christan on 1/19/14


Bro. Richard, thank you for what you said concerning our confession of faith. It is like the works we do when we allow ourselves to be baptized in water. It is a part of our work because it is one of the sacraments. Confessing to God, getting baptized, are the works of man after he is born of God. That is why we are told concerning the lost,
"there is none who understand, there is none who seek after God" (Rom. 3:11). When we are saved, it is by God mercy, love and His wonderful grace. Lost man is without God, and so without hope. Guilty for sinning against God.

Let's continue reading John 1 ....notice GRACE and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ...who said I AM, THE WAY TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY THROUGH ME.


14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace..

17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ..

If this was so then there would be no tares in the churches ! When some one say's I receive Christ , And they were saved , Karthr : Would this not be a work of righteousness on that person part ? And of coarse we can't be saved by our righteousness, It reminds me of TV evangelist , I will not use his name - At the end of the sermon would tell people come down and receive Jesus and you will be saved, Now were all these people Born again ? The confession of faith is something we are doing, a good work,

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:11-13

There's a sequence to the verses above, follow it and the Truth is revealed.

1. those who received Christ
2. became the sons of God
3. they will believe in Christ
4. it has nothing to do with the flesh (as freewill advocates) but they were born of the Spirit because of God
---christan on 1/18/14


Markv, boy have you twisted that verse. It does NOT say that once you are born again THEN you have the right to receive Him.

He came unto HIS OWN and HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT. So where is the follow up saying it was because they were not first born again?

The parable of the wedding feast explains....His own did not come, so he went out into the streets and INVITED ANYONE who would come....meaning now Gentiles. Nothing about anyone first being born again

Marriage is the same way....you do the asking, she can say yes or no, if yes she has received you, THEN she has the right TO BECOME your wife.

Kathr, why do you not understand? Who are those who have the right to become children of God? As many as receive Him. And who are those who believe in His name? those "who were born, not of blood, nor the will of man, but of God"
The passage tells us that as soon as a person who is born of God receives Him by faith, He gave them the right to become children of God.
It is not by the will of man but by the will of God.
Why don't you understand that the lost are under a curse they cannot get away from? They are heading to hell condemned already. They have no rights. If God doesn't have mercy on them, they remain on the road to hell.
They have no rights, the trial is over, they have been found guilty.
---Mark_V. on 1/18/14


Where we differ MarkV is upon the will of GOD. If the will of GOD is irresistible as TULIP teaches then you are correct.

The Bible says GOD will is that all be saved. But we know not all are saved. So your point cannot be correct.

Which means that it is not GOD who chooses. In the parable of the sower it was the devil and choice of men because of their hearts that caused them to be saved or lost.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/17/14


"But as many as receive Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God"////

Markv, do you understand the English language? do you understand what TO BECOME means?

TO BECOME is future tense, not past tense. therefore you were not ALREADY a child of God.
---kathr4453 on 1/17/14


Kathr, nothing about a tulip in the passage. To argue you say,
"Receive Jesus Christ folks, and when you do you will be born of God,"
The passage does not say that,

"But as many as receive Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God" And who are those that received Him? "to those who believed in His name," and who are those that believed in His name? "Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God"
Did you get that? "nor by the will of man" but of God" Pretty easy to understand if you are not looking out for Calvin or the Tulip, and only those born of God can understand.

John 1:12-13

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.


Don't you like how these cults only quote half a verse to make THEIR point.


Receive Jesus Christ folks, and when you do you will be born of God, born of the LIFE OF CHRIST in You when you identify with Him in death and resurrection life. YOU must receive Him for His death and resurrection life to be activated in you. It is not forced on you against your knowledge or will.

Shira, notice, I am not saying you are not saved, what I am saying is that your concept of salvation is wrong, in fact reversed. You now say you are child of God because you chose Jesus as your Savior.
Sorry to tell you this Shira but no one can choose to be a child of God by choosing Jesus.
You need to be chosen by God and born of God to become a child of God.
You need to be born of God in order to receive Him and become a child of God. (John 1:12,13). "who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" Those are the one's who received Him and were given the right to become children of God.
---Mark_V. on 1/16/14


markv, I do have it both ways. I was born into the family of God and as a result, I am a child of God. It is He who dictates my life. because I accepted Christ as my Savior. you don't even understand simple salvation. it is surely sad.

Men left in their dead state are unable of themselves to repent, to believe the gospel, or to come to Christ. They have no power within themselves to change their natures or to prepare themselves for salvation.
"No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day" (John 5:44). Mark_V.

True every word you write here. The difference is that JESUS draws all men to Him. Not just a few. So all are called and empowered to changed by the HOLY SPIRIT. But then many like the seed turn back or let Satan take away the Gospel.

You have to rewrite the Parable of the Sower to get your limited atonement and irrestible grace.

"Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? There is none" (Job 14:4).

---shira4368 on 1/15/14


Shira, you don't want to believe that it is God who changes you, and gives you a new heart, but that it is you who chose Christ out of your own free will. And here you admit that it is God who dictates your life when you said,
" man does not dictate my life but God does."
So you finally admit it is God who dictates your life, it is not you who makes the decision for Christ. Make up your mind. Either He is in charge of your life, or you are with your free will. You cannot have it both ways. Just maybe you are saying that you are saved by your own free will and after you chose Christ, He can now dictate your life, because you gave Him permission when you chose Him.

The Bible says any who wants to change can. So you can take this promise. Remember Paul caused the death of Christians and placed many in prison. But GOD saved Him and He can save you. Go to JESUS talk to Him He is listening and wants and loves you.

Read your Bible start with Mark and then John. Pray spend time with GOD listen to a Christian radio so that your mind turns to the things of GOD instead of the world.

katia, God teaches forgiveness. If you are not saved God will save you if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Christ died for you. when we are saved, God still teaches forgiveness. He said to forgive over and over and over.
---shira4368 on 1/13/14


Katia, Catherine is correct when she said,
"Assuming He has already saved you. Also important to note: Is He convicting you of your sins?"
The main reason she is correct is that the lost do not seek after God (Rom. 3:11). You need to be saved, born of the Spirit to be able to seek after God. If you are, then go to Him in Jesus name and ask Him to forgive you and use you for His ministry. And He will always answer you. You must be feeling a conviction from the Spirit already since you are asking for help from others, because you do want to turn you life around.

Katia: There is only one sin that God will not forgive - the unpardonable sin of grieving the Holy Spirit. The fact that you are concerned about forgiveness shows that the Holy Spirit is still working within you, and forgiveness is yours if you truly repent and ask for it.

Those passages do not say what you said, and second, The passage in the context is speaking to believers in Christ, because the seed of Christ is only in believers. John was telling the believers in Christ'
"Whoever is born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God" (1 John 3:9).

John 10:27 specifies TWO kinds of sheep (and John 10:1 says some will climb in by another way).

Hebrews 10:27 says that the Lord will "shake" His church ("the HEAVEN"....all who claim Him as MESSIAH do NOT have His DIVINE SPIRIT ALSO).

Everything does not have to be a "verse" (common sense is allowed).

If I said "2 plus 2 equals 4", the typical reaction from most Christians would be "Where is the verse for that"?.

God wants us to be "experts" in using common sense. In the RSV, the "anointing" is spoken of as the time when we start using spiritual common sense

The "anointing" happens when we notice/find the 'SEED/DNA' of where we came from.

Faith, the works a person does who is already saved, are attributed to Christ who already lives in us. (Eph. 2:10) explains that to us. After God makes us alive and saves us by His grace, the Word of God tells us:
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" That is why when a save person does good works, the honor and glory goes to Christ.
When an unsaved person does good works, it is sin, for no glory goes to God. Without Christ, all our good works are as filthy rags. For anything without faith in Christ is sin.
---Mark_V. on 1/2/14


Faith, I don't know how you came out with this statement out of (Heb. 9:14,15), because you said,
"God has a REQUIREMENT that our flesh and also our CONSCIENCE be purified so that we can attain salvation in His kingdom (that's right, COMPLETE salvation is a TWO step process)."
Where does the passage say that? There is no process for a sinner to have to go through.
First, when God saves someone and makes them spiritually alive, they are dead in trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:1,2). They are not purified, but very filthy. They are by nature children of wrath (v.2:3).
Second, God does not see anything good in you when He takes you out of the path heading to hell. You are condemned already for rebelling against God.
---Mark_V. on 1/1/14


What I intended to point out is that Jesus made it possible for us to have a pure conscience every day....

....if we would learn from His Spirit to do things in the manner that we EACH are taught by His Spirit...

....meaning that we will have a clear conscience every day because we learned to do things the HOLY WAY (way of God), the result will be that we are SANCTIFIED

.....(Jesus purified the FLESH,....His Spirit will purify OUR CONSCIENCE, Hebrews 9:14).

faith, one must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. you will not enter heaven any other way no matter what works you do.

God has a REQUIREMENT that our flesh and also our CONSCIENCE be purified so that we can attain salvation in His kingdom (that's right, COMPLETE salvation is a TWO step process).

The first step is what HE does...

the second step is OUR OWN decision (being SPIRIT-filled).

InHebrews chapter 1, we are told that Jesus made purification "FOR SIN"...R.S.V.) and then God'sSPIRIT purifies the CONSCIENCE IF WE LEARN to let OUR SPIRIT be like God's Spirit (Romans 8:16, John 7:39).

...OUR forgiveness of each other does not purify anything/anyone (we were not on the cross,...it is a GOOD SENTIMENT but cannot do what Jesus's forgiveness can do).
---faithforfaith on 12/28/13


Since God's forgiveness was performed and HAPPENED on the cross ("It is DONE"), asking Him to perform it again is unnecessary (a lack of faith,...say "Lord, help my unbelief").

The Jews needed to be instructed they each should become "a forgiving person" (WE, JESUS WORSHIPERS, should be a forgiving person because of THE SPIRIT....the Jews did not know about God's SPIRT, John 1:33).

Each Jesus worshiper was given a measure of faith (my measure finds forgiveness to be useless....I will not be a hypocrite and forgive someone for hurting me...Jesus said "I will put him with the hypocrites, there men will weep and gnash their teeth" (I don't have my R.S.V. and cannot look up the verse number).
---faithforfaith on 12/28/13


Of course God can forgive you, based on the Gospel of John, chapter 3, verses 16-18. Can God use me? Of course, based on one condition - you have to let Him. If you think He can't, read Romans chapter 12, verses 1-4. Keep in mind, God will convict you of sin, but Satan will make you feel guilty even after God has forgiven you.

When I was going through a heart break God spoke to me and told me I was going to heaven because I was trusting in what His Son, Jesus, did on the cross for my sins -that no matter how bad life was, it would in essence cease to matter to me because of what heaven is. Now, only the blood was mentioned, nothing about my past, present, or future choices were addressed as my salvation. Only the blood. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--" So enjoy the gift: "I tell you the truth ... you will be with me in paradise." <3

Katia, take what you can from this!

Mat_9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
Mat_9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
Mat_9:22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

God has blessed you already! But remember.
Heb_11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Believe God's blessings!
Peace

faith, I don't know what your comment means. who are you referring to? forgiveness by God or human? It is necessary to ask God's forgiveness so I can have a closer walk with God. I forgive man before they ever ask because I don't want anything eating away at me to cause me to be bitter and angry. it is surely beneficial to my well being.
---shira4368 on 12/26/13


Do you feel that NOT BEING FORGIVEN would be a GOOD and beneficial thing for anyone to do? (do YOU see any practical purpose for unforgiveness?......if not, then you shall not receive unforgiveness).

Take heart you are forgiven.. do not be lead by feelings, talk to The Lord in Prayer,read,learn from the word of God, He will help you!
---Lidia4796 on 12/19/13


"Go and sin no more" doesn't sound like a very unforgiving God.

God "ABOLISHED" the law that was about "SIN" (look up the word "ABOLISHED" in the R.S.V., it is likely the version closest to the original Greek).....I'm not going to "spoon feed" you like little children, if you don't want to learn, that's YOUR fault.

THe "PERFECT law" is in James 1:25 and 2:12 (it is not an OPTION, it is "THE LAW").
---faithforfaith on 12/19/13


Katia....A friend of mine who is a theologian once told me that saying that your sins are so bad that God cannot forgive you is the most egotistical thing a person can say. It is saying that Jesus did not pay for your sins on the cross. Your sins are no more special than anyone elses. Thousands of ministers are serving the Lord today after HE turned their lives around. You can't turn it around, but HE can.
---KarenD on 12/18/13


Being in Christ today provides complete, total forgiveness as a present possession (Eph. 1:7. 4:32, Col. 1:14, 2:13). We do not ask for forgiveness when we sin today but we recognize that at the time Christ died for us, all of our sins were future. We dont take sin lightly, but we see it in light of the cross that his shed blood fully paid for our sins. If we fail to accept that the price he paid was not enough, we are really saying that Christ didnt do it right the first time when he died. Christ no longer imputes sin to the believer since it is a settled issue (Rom. 4:8).

Will you forgive you?
---BRYAN on 12/17/13


It is possible with God. We can't do this on our own. Plus, our Father is about family. He has us helping each other. So, yes He wants people who help you (c:

You can learn from your bad choices and use yourself as an example for others so we also can learn from your mistakes.

But forgiveness includes being in God's love where you have this forgiveness, and He wants you to live His loving forgiveness for others, as you have been forgiven so lovingly! (c:

So, we need You, O LORD our Father. This is not what we do, ourselves.
---willie_c: on 12/17/13


Katia
In (1 John 1:9) we have a promise, a promise from God to forgive us for sins, if we confess those sins before him.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

God, unlike man, does not break his promises. If you want to be forgiven, go into a room where you can be alone, get down on your knees and confess your sins before God. Just ask God to forgive you, and he will.

Get into the habit of doing this everyday, and watch how good God can be to those who love him.
Don't believe me? Do it and you will experience it for yourself, and then you will know the Truth.

Have you killed someone?

King David did and God forgave him so Yes.

Why, of course!

Jesus loves to forgive sins. Haven't you heard?

There's a Maronite hymn beginning, "Lover of those who repent...."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

"Is it possible to turn your life around after so many mistakes and bad choices." Yes. By "forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Phl 3:13,14
"Can God use me?" Yes. Simply yield yourself to Him and rest. Offer yourself "as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship." Rom 12:1
"Will God forgive me?" You have already been forgiven, in Christ. "The kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin, and results in salvation. There's no regret for that kind of sorrow." 2Cr 7:10
