Did Jesus Pay For Our Sins
The operative is the word "once". Christ was crucified once for all. The law was created to give us a guide to know the difference between right and wrong. Christ consistently raised the bar of the law to get to the heart of it. Example: the written law states to not commit adultery. Christ stated to not even gaze upon another person in a lustful manner or you have created adultry in your heart. Future sins? So there is no repentance if you lied before salvation and continue to lie after accepting Christ? What does the Spirit of Truth tell you?

To be lawless is to have no law and be living in sin.
To be under the law is to be living in sin. So the law would be condemning you.
To try to save yourself by the law or works is useless. Since we cannot atone for our sins by works.
But to live for Jesus in love is what we are supposed to do. In Matthew 25 many people claimed to follow GOD. But didn't help others. They were lost.

You can't have it both ways. You are either Lawless, or you are under the law .
---David on 7/6/17
I am so sad. You quote one of my favorite verses, John 14:21 and yet you miss John 14:20, an even greater verse.
The answer to your question is John 14:23-24. If we love Jesus, we will trust and do His words and God will abide with us.
This is about relationship, not performance. God has already forgiven us of all our sin (at the cross). Yet when we have not trusted and changed our mind about Jesus, there can be no relationship with God. We are still hiding in the bushes.

The law has been condensed into two commandments, love God and love others. ---Mark_Eaton
In (John 14:21) Jesus said, if we loved him we would keep his commandments. Was he speaking about the two you mentioned?
If he had, he would have said, If you love me, keep my commandment to love me?

The other thing, you claim you are not under the law. You can't have it both ways. You are either Lawless, or you are under the law .

We are not sanctified by keeping the Law.--Mark

James 2:26 - For a body without a spirit is dead, So faith with out works is dead,
Romans 3:27 - Where is the Boasting then? It is excluded, By what Law ? Law of work's Nay: buy the law of faith,
Romans 3:28 - Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the Law,
Galatians 3:11 - But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident for, The just shall live by faith,

Many people don't understand that Noah found Grace in the eyes of the Lord.
But so did all the Jews especially David. Grace is not new. Otherwise all those who lived before Jesus would not be saved.
The Jews showed their belief in Jesus by offering blood sacrifices. Which along with the temple and rituals pointed to Jesus Christ.
We are saved by looking to our crucified and risen Savior.
Those filled with love and the Spirit work. Why because they are filled with love and the Spirit. No fruits. No love.
---Samuelbb7 on 7/4/17|
But unless we keep the Law, sin will not die, and we can not be saved...Understand?
---David on 7/3/17
No, David. But I do know this...
Paul says "Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?" in Galatians 3.
We are born again of the Spirit and grace and truth came by Jesus. We are not sanctified by keeping the Law. Jesus told us to "love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets"
---Mark_Eaton on 7/4/17|
Sorry if I made you angry.
Paul says those who keep the Law will be justified. The Law is a part of the justification process, but it's God who saves us.
Noah built the ark, but did Noah save himself by building the Ark? Would Noah have been saved if he hadn't built the Ark? If so, why was the Ark built?
God merely created a way to destroy the inhabitants on the Earth, and provide a vehicle in which Noah could be saved. In much the same way, we do not save ourselves by keeping the Law. But unless we keep the Law, sin will not die, and we can not be saved.
In those days Paul would have said, "If you build an ark you will be saved, but building the ark does not save you."
---David on 7/3/17|
Romans 1, 2, and 3 are all talking about the Mosaic Law of which Christians are not "Under."
NT Christians are under the Law of Christ by which we're under grace now.
---john9346 on 7/3/17|
David, go to online Bible, and put in two words.....1)law 2) justified, you will see in The KJV a total of 8 verses come up. 7 of the 8 CLEARLY SAY, we are NOT justified by the Law...therefore one needs to go back and REREAD Romans 2 to understand this clear contradiction. AND see immediately in Chapter 3 we have a THEREFORE no man is justified by the law.
It's dangerous to take scripture out of context. Abel was justified, so was Noah, Enoch ect....and there was NO LAW of Moses at that time. They were JUSTIFIED BY FAITH as Hebrews 11 CLEARLY STATE. BUT EVEN MORE INTERESTING , SCRIPTURE SAYS TODAY WE ARE JUSTIFIED "BY HIS BLOOD" and saved By His Life.
IM concerned with TODAY David, not a time before the Cross.
---kathr4453 on 7/2/17|
(Romans 2:13) ....the doers of the Law shall be justified.
The above verse clearly says the Law is a part of the salvation process. But the reason folks don't accept what Paul says in (Romans 2), is because they have not had the experience Paul writes about.
They must therefore create illogical doctrines to explain verses like these. This is why Paul's epistles are a mind bending read for most. If they shared in his experience, his epistles are easy to understand.
Sin represents our love for the world, and when our Love for God grows greater than our love for the world,....sin dies. This love for God, comes through the keeping of the Law and the confession of sin. It's also how we remain in Gods Grace.
---David on 7/2/17|
Samuel said, "
two questions. What does it mean to be under the law?"
Samuel, in Galatians Paul is talking about 2 different laws 1 being the Mosaic Law in Gal 3 and in Gal 6:2 the law of Christ of which Christians today are now under.
Rom 13:8-10 and Eph 6:1-4 is the law of Christ not the law of Moses.
The Ten Commandments are of the law of Moses not the law of Christ.
---john9346 on 7/2/17|
David, Romans 2:12 we see a timeline of those before the law...that would be from Adam to Moses. Yet they according to scripture had the law of moral conscience within, knowing right from wrong.
Romans 5 says sin entered the world via Adam, and sin brought death. And FAITH, brought LIFE. Faith still brings life.
Job never mentions the Law, yet Job shows faith. Job was also before the Law of Moses. So was Noah's faith. So to say no one knew what sin was before the law of Moses is not true.
---kathr4453 on 6/30/17|
Here's Paul's warning to those who do not put themselves under the Law. And I give you the same warning.--David
Above is what I meant to write, correction in bold print.
---David on 6/29/17|
Romans 13 Paul lists five of the Ten commandments and says love will keep them.
Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother, (which is the first commandment with promise,)
This is the first of the Ten Commandments with a promise.
two questions. What does it mean to be under the law?
Galatians 5 Paul speaks of those living in sin as being under the law. That those living for GOD are not under the law.
In Galatians also Paul speaks of those who try to save themselves by works are under the law.
What is the purpose of the law. Romans 3:20 Law tell us what is a sin.
Ephesians 2 Read.
Therefore being under the law means living in save or practicing self righteousness.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/29/17|
David, all I can say to your question is to ask you to reread Romans 5.--Kathryn
I do understand your resistance to the works of the Law, but instead of studying those few verses which prove you are right, study those which prove you wrong.
(Romans 5:1) does says we are justified by faith, but what does (James 2: 20) says about faith...faith without works? Who will be justified in (Romans 2:13), according to Paul? Is it the hearers or the doers of the Law?
Here's Paul's warning to those who do put themselves under the Law. And I give you the same warning.
(Romans 2:12) For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law.
---David on 6/29/17|
David, all I can say to your question is to ask you to reread Romans 5. It goes back to Adam and sin, although without the Law, was not imputed to man however the consequences of SIN brought death immediately to Adam and Eve and all mankind.
FAITH was immediately established in Genesis, promising a redeemer, and Abel's blood sacrifice was evidence of faith, the very same faith we exercise today.
The sin of unbelief, leading to NO FAITH, one remains in death.
Even before the Law there are saved and unsaved folks....
The LAW never promised to save anyone.
---kathr4453 on 6/28/17|
The Bible DOES SAY there is a sin that will not be forgiven.--Kathryn
But if your not under the Law, how is the commission of this sin possible, when sin is the transgression of the Law?
Interesting point, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit was not mentioned under the Law of Moses. So under what law is it a transgression?
---David on 6/28/17|
Trying to find a loop hole trey? The Bible DOES SAY there is a sin that will not be forgiven.
If I said I have enough bread to feed the whole world to keep everyone alive, and YOU STARVED to death....does that make me a liar? God does NOT force anyone to be saved. Anymore that I am responsible for FORCEFEEDING bread down your throat against your will.
Have you ever heard the testimony of someone saying GOD FORCED His Son on you to be crucified with Christ...forcing DEATH on you so that you could now be raised up a New Creature in Christ? If it's forced ITS NOT FAITH, nor is it a GIFT.
---kathr4453 on 6/28/17|
If Christ paid the price for all the sins of the whole world how would God be just in sending anyone to hell?
If Christ died to pay the price for all a man's sins what about the sin of unbelief?
If unbelief can separate us from God how can Paul say, that nothing can separate us from the Love of God?

Jesus "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God." Jesus "was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin." "Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God." For the believer, sin is the past, the past is forgiven. Present and future sin does not exist for those born of God. For they have been purged of all sin, and as such should have no more conscience of sins. Sons of God walk in the Spirit, and have been made the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus.

I think they do not get forgiveness from God. They have to go to Hell to pay for what they did with their own pain, suffering, and humiliation. The world we live in is increasingly polluted and not liveable. They can have it. With their dead kids everywhere.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ, who has 'blessed' -empowered- us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ:
'According' -just as- He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:
Having 'predestinated' -predetermined- us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath 'made' -indued- us [with special favor and honor through His divine influence upon our heart], accepted in the beloved." Our sinlessness, forgiveness and holiness is of Him, not of ourselves.

2 Maccabees 12:40-46,under the tunic of each of the dead they found amulets sacred to the idols of Jamnia which the laws forbids the Jews to wear. So it was clear to all this was why these men had been slain...Turning to supplication, they prayed that the sinful deed might be fully blotted out..He then took up a collection,2000 silver drachmas, which he sent to Jerusalem to provide for an expiatory sacrifice. Doing this he acted in a very excellent and noble way, inasmuch as he had the resurrection of the dead in view, for if he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been useless and foolish to pray for them in death...it was a holy and pious thought. Thus he mad atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin.

---Toni on 7/24/08|
Yes, ALL our sins were forgiven on the Cross. Of course, that forgiveness is contingent on faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work. In Ps. 103, David tells us to not forget all His benefits and then it says, "who forgives all your iniquities." God wants us to know that He has forgiven ALL sins so that we can receive His benefits. In Matt. 9, before Jesus healed the man with the palsey, He told him that his sins were forgiven. It doesn't say that the man asked for forgiveness or that he repented, what it does say is that he had faith and Jesus forgave His sins and then He healed him. Faith in the finished work of Christ is all that is required. God made the way for victory over your flesh, sin and the devil by exercising your faith.

He did, but we have to continuously be asking for forgiveness. Do you want to know why? Because we are apt to go a wandering to other pastures. Folks I am going to add something here. We need Jesus. We know we are not perfect in any kind of a way. If we were perfect, we would not need Him. But we know we need Him desparately, and we want Him desparately, and we love Him desparately. But on the otherhand, we are made righteous, [made right with God], because we have said I DO to His Son Jesus Christ. We hate sin, and now we have a Father who will let us klnow when we mess up.

Jesus paid for the penalty of all our sins (ppf). A true disciple of Jesus is no longer guilty (requires the punishment) of their sins. Jesus took their punishment for them. However, they still have the guilty feeling in their conscience and the consequences of their future sins.
Ref~Leviticus the three required offerings (KJV-sin, burnt, peace).
To get rid of the guilty conscience use 1Jn1:9,
To get help through the consequences use Heb13:5-6,
If I lied to someone, I would not stop being Gods child (Jesus took my punishment). Yet, I would have to repent and apologize to that person and God. Then to overcome the consequences, ask God to help me to seek forgiveness of that person and to rebuild their previous trust.
---phil on 7/23/08|
Eloy and Nichol,
If you read through the scripture, you will see God seeks mercy not vengeance from those who follow him. A true disciple of Jesus repents from wanting is own way and seeks to put Gods way first in their life. For that God makes them his child Jn1:12, In that relationship, God uses gratitude to keep the disciple from sinning not guilt. Using guilt only leads to bitterness.
Before you were born, all of your sins were future. Let me ask, when you disobeyed your parents, did you have to be born from your mothers womb again. No. The same is with God.
God said, I will cast their sins into the deepest sea and remember them no more. Jeremiah~Micah~Hebrews.
---phil on 7/23/08|
We are definitely saved by grace through faith! I actually was responding to another blog, but since you mentioned it, once we're saved, we are to live by the Word of God we read and this is up to us in obedience. God doesn't save us to make excuses for shoddy Christian lifestyles, but for a life of following "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord! Hebrews 12:14. Don't believe just the beginning, but live a saved life after receiving Christ Jesus as Saviour and Lord!
---Theresa on 7/23/08|
Jesus had to put away sin so all could come to God and be saved. We are saved by grace through faith, NOT through us being sinless, if that were even possible. Without the Cross there is no forgiveness.

"What shall we say then? shall we continue in sin that grace may bound? God forbid."Romans Chapter 6, verse 1. "Awake to righteousness and sin not." I Corinthians chapter 15, verse 34.

The scriptures are spritually discerned according to I Corinthians Chapter 2, verse 14 and are for us to obey.
---Theresa on 7/22/08|
Jesus did not die so that we should and could go on sinning. He died to show us a better way and to give us grace not to go on in our bad old ways. Left to only prophets, humanity would solve the problem of sin by putting them in a pit and forgetting about them. But when God sent His own Son to do what they could not do, which is to rise from the dead in accordance to predictions of both Jesus and the Old Testament, then we have to listen to Jesus and to God.
---frances008 on 7/21/08|
Apparently it was a Jewish tradition and still may be, to pray for the dead. I googled 'Bible purgatory' and everywhere it says purgatory is not mentioned in the Bible. But Nicole may not be entirely wrong if you read 1 Cor 3.11-15 which seems to talk of a fire in which bad works are burned up but the soul is saved. Matthew 12.32 talks of the unforgiveable sin, saying it will not be forgiven either in this world or the next. Which seems to offer hope that in the next world there is a further chance of forgiveness at least for certain sins. I am inclined to pray for those who died out of Christianity or in some sin or other, because they may be able to receive forgiveness or comfort when we pray for them.
---frances001 on 7/21/08|
1. Settling accounts before you go to prison, Nicole, refers to doing what you can before you die. What is the other side of that coin? Living a life of unforgiveness or theft or whatever your particular sin against others was. Remember Lazarus and the Rich Man. Lazarus went to Heaven and the Rich man went to Hell. The Rich Man begged for another chance to come back and warn his brothers, but Jesus said 'They have the Old Testament prophets and Abraham.' We should study our Old Testaments.

How can you ask a question and then demand it from a certain source?
Your leader took out 1 and 2 Maccabees from the Old Testament. Go back to the Jewish' Books of the Old Testament.
They have Maccabees and it is in these books which speaks of Purgatory.
But, even Jesus speaks about settling your accounts before you go to prison. Then He said you will not come out until you pay the last cent.
How can you pay a debt in prison?
Jesus is speaking about Purgatory.
---Nicole on 7/20/08|
duane, praying is asking. Asking for forgiveness is not an insult, you will not receive any forgiveness nor any salvation unless you ask the one whom has it, namely Christ.

Strongax: you are talking about sins of ommission and sins of commission. The first are sins you commit and you don't know. sins of commission are those things you know are wrong but do them anyways in direct rebellion against God, example: adultery, fornication, theft, lies, idolatry, murder, profanity, alcoholism, etc. there is a big difference. to repent, you never commit that sin twice and you are forgiven. if you know it is wrong and keep doing it, that is not repentence and you will pay the price.

Matthew - What you say is not true. To receive forgiveness from the Lord we must ASK Him to forgive us or there is no forgiveness. Read 1John 1:9 for a start ("If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.."). Forgiveness of sin is NOT automatic.
---Helen_5378 on 10/27/07|

Jesus did take upon himself all sins past, present, and future, but that does NOT mean you are automatically forgiven of everything you do. except ye repent, ye shall NOT enter the kingdom of God. He will forgive those sins we repent of ourselves. it is not a free ride to indulge in anything you like. disobedience brings punishment, not blessings. satan told eve, eat of the tree you won't die. they were cast out of the garden. anyone that sins without repenting will also be cast out.
---ashley on 10/26/07|
Matthew, only those who have not read the Bible in its entirety would fall for that. Jesus is merciful, but your philosophy would imply that God made a mistake in the OT. That He changed His mind on everything that He had done before. The OT was preparation for the New, not a mistake undone by it.
We can count of Jesus to be steadfast and merciful. But not all who call "Lord, Lord" will be saved.

Mima, where does it say that future personal sins are paid for? All of our sins are washed clean in the blood of the lamb when we repent and are baptised. And this washing of regeneration is available for all future generations. However, the Bible clearly states that we can fall back into sin and that it is worse for us if we do than if we had never known Christ.
---lorra8574 on 10/26/07|
I know that sins were paid for completely by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. That is why I don't understand why people tell lost individuals that they need to seek forgiveness for their sin. They need not do that, but just seek Christ/God until they find him. When they find Christ and what he did they should realize they are already forgiven, not seek forgiveness.

Adam and Eve brough sin into a world where there was none. Jesus redeemed the world. But, that does not mean that we are free to sin.

No. Jesus paid only for the sins that a person repents of, he cannot forgive any sin that is future or otherwise, which has not yet been confessed and repented from. If you live in sin, you're damned;p but if you live in Christ, you're saved.
