Damned For Just One Sin

Some of you seem to believe that if we die with just one sin unforgiven we go to hell. Do you seriously think that if YOU were killed in a traffic accident 5 seconds after sinning in thought, word or deed you would be eternally damned?

Forget about what "SOME" other people might possibly think about a hypothetical situation that could possibly occur if properly imagined or supposed.

Don't be so vague about your intentions here. What is it exactly that you are wondering about?

If you sin against dress codes, God won't even send His angels down to call you a "slob" (5 seconds or not). He is not an "eternally damner", He is not a "damner" at all.

In the book Waking the Dead. John Eldredge writes that if we have accepted Christ into our hearts we are no longer sinners. We are new creations bound no longer to sin. So if we sin it really isnt us who does it. It is no longer our nature to sin. It is our nature to serve God. So I believe that if you are truly serving God and walking in his ways and slip, he will catch you. He knows your heart.

If you were a born again christian before this incident and was in right standing with God. You will go to heaven. I would not worry myself about this type of thing. God looks upon the heart. Man cannot do this. If your heart is right with God, you are in right standing.

Eloy. No sin is in heaven as Christ paid for it to have it forgiven and forgoten.

Heb 10:16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts and will write them on their minds,"
Heb 10:17 and, "I will never again remember their sins and their lawless deeds."
---douglas on 3/7/08

m.a I asked the question about the accident because alot of people think they can lose their salvation. It was meant as a "what if, show me why you believe that" . As of yet no one can, as there is no scriptural proof.

Leslie: if this statement is true," but you WILL be judged for that sin."
---Leslie on 1/3/07
Then God did not forgive you nor did he pay for all sins on the cross. If we face judgment for any sin, then Jesus did not pay for that sin. At death we are not judged as to having sin. We are judged as to whether or not we have the Lord Jesus Christ's spirit living within us.
---Mima on 1/4/07

Having sin will NOT send you to Hell. Having NO Jesus in you will send you to Hell. If you sin before you die, and you are a Christian (accepted Jesus Christ into your heart as Lord & Savior), you WILL go to Heaven, but you WILL be judged for that sin.
---Leslie on 1/3/07

Your question goes to the extent of the Atonement. In other words, did it pay for ALL of a believer's sins, or just SOME?

It is an incomplete Atonement if only selected sins are forgiven. And if some are not forgiven, are there others?
If all believers' sins are forgiven, then it is an unconditional forgiveness.
That is why the Just had to die for the unjust. Either Jesus did it all, or he is an incomplete Savior.

Rev. 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
I think this includes every person!
---Fred_S. on 1/31/06

God changes a person. And God's word convicts us when we are doing wrong. We read His word and see that we are not following one thing the way He wants and that word causes us to feel what we feel. Sooner or later we will change because of the Holy Spirit. We change for the good, not for the bad. It is a lifetime process and we become more like Christ. We need His word to correct us and convict us. But we cannot do it without Christ. Our whole dependence is on Him. That is what it is to be a Christian.
---Lupe2618 on 1/31/06

7. is the Holy Spirit that He plants within. If we were perfect when we were saved, we would not need the New Testament for anything. The Word of God would not have to convict us when we do wrong because we would be perfect. But we are not perfected yet and we do need Christ to help us through. He will cause us to follow Him and it won't be because of us but because of Him.

6. Now before all the Catholics jump up and say, "You see, you have to be baptized to be saved", let me answer this way. What God said through Ezekiel is this, "In the future there will be a New Covenant. It will be a covenant of water-I will sprinkle clean water upon you." What water? The water of cleansing. And what is the agency of cleansing? "We have been washed by the water of the Word." So the water there is the washing of the Word that washes the heart, and the spirit

5. So now, what are the conditions? We have to be born again. To do what? To enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And who will cause that to happen? God. He will CAUSE YOU to walk in His statutes. Everything from beginning to end is because of God. All the things we do is because of God. Not because of ourselves. God is causing us to be who we are. If someone is not walking in His statutes he is not one that is born again. When men take credit that only belongs to the Lord is so wrong.
---Lupe2618 on 1/31/06

4. It was through the prophet Ezekiel that God oringinally laid down the conditions of the New Covenant. "Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you and (CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN MY STATUTES.)
---Lupe2618 on 1/31/06

3. it is not your good works-you must be born of water and the spirit. The immediate question is, "What is He talking about?" Is He talking about Baptism? If we look at the context we can find the answer. Nicodemus was a Jew. He was a ruler of the Jews. He knew the Old Testament, so Jesus was talking to him on Old Testament terms. To know what this water means you have to go to Ezekiel 36:25. Now Nicodemus knew what Jesus was talking about, he knew the O.T. very well.

2. Jews, which meant that he lived a high standard of life. "what more do I need to do to get in the kingdom? he ask Jesus. Jesus tells him, you have to start all over again. All that you have done up to now doesn't count. You have to be born again. Start all over. What Jesus was saying your accumulation of good works means absolutely nothing. Jesus tells him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God." It is not what you do,

Hello Darlene, from the beginning my point has been what God can do through a believer. Not what man of himself can do. That man was filth before The Holy Spirit came into his heart is Scriptural. If you go to the story of Nicodemus you can see how Jesus answered him on his question of "how can a man be born again when he is old?" so far Nicodemus had done everything, he had kept the Law, He was a Pharisee, which means he was a devoted to legalism, Law-keeping, obedience. He was ruler of the

Alan, I was just making the point, there are other possibilities of time. It is so unimportant to any of us. It doesn't effect our Christian walk now, and we have the right to ask our Father anything. The Bible says that if our heart condemn us ,God is greater. God doesn't even condemn us, but leaves it to our heart which submits to the Word, neither should man. Bible; Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. The Bible gives all we need to get to heaven. Rest in the Lord.

Darlene ... But I am condemned for believing in this way.

Darlene ... The point I was making is that there are so many here who KNOW they are right about these details ... like the Creation. Even you suggest that 6000 years is the olny alternative way of interpreting the 6 days. But you see I do not see the need to take every word as literal. To my mind the term 1000 years means either that or millions of years or even just "a huge length of time"

It's important that we stay in Christ, because our salvation and our witness depend on it. Let all who name the name of Christ depart from wrong. Fiction sometimes sounds sweeter than truth, yet falsehood passes away as a faded flower, and only the words of truth will stand forever. Lupe's words are not scriptural, and some people think that they will be heard for their many word's sake. But the elect will not be deceived by the lost, for we listen and obey only the words of Christ, rather than another.
---Eloy on 1/30/06

Alan we talked about Creation before too and there are some real puzzels connected with the information we have. Unless someone has more info than we do, they can't decide what is right or wrong. I just take what I know say Praise God for the Creation and judge no one. Anyway it could well have been 6000 years of Creation And 1000 of rest-a day is a 1000 years to God and vice versa. So who is to say?
---Darlene_1 on 1/30/06

Alan, fight sinning almost daily. Bible says we have an advocate with the Father,if we do sin we can pray and Christ our Advocate will make intercession for our forgiveness. I should have made this clear, we don't have to sin. To avoid, we bury the Word of God in our heart,soul, spirit so as soon as we are tempted we will recall the Word and how to not sin. My point, you aren't washed clean of future sins only past. We fight sinning always. Bible; Pray-Praise-Continually. Tuning in God,tunes out Satan.
---Darlene_1 on 1/30/06

Darlene ... Yes we have been through this before, but many subjects are debated at great length again and again!!
I have been challenged here with sinnng by not believing in 6x24 hour Creation, so I cannot be a Christian? And those who challenge me, I see in them the sin of arrogance, does that mean they are not Christians? The Bible tells me that although I sin, I am washed clean of those sins. I do not see it telling I am damned if I do sin in spite of my desire and best intentions not to.

---Rebecca_D on 1/30/06

Lupe ,sorry I didn't make myself clear. I said we don't have to love Christ, it's up to us. The obedience I spoke of wasn't obedience to, or forced to love Christ, but obedience to the Word of God because we made the free will choice to love Christ. Through love comes a desire to please our Master, the Lord God Almighty. The relationship we should have with Christ is to be a reflection of Him. Working for Christ we show love for Him through our actions. Holiness should be a way of life not part time.
---Darlene_1 on 1/30/06

Alan ,we've been through this before, but yes I believe we can live without sinning. Please understand I don't believe we won't be tempted, but so was Christ, yet without sin. It's resisting the temptation which keeps us from sin. When a thought comes to mind which doesn't line up with love and the Word we are to resist the devil and he will flee from us. It's Satan's job to tempt by many means, our's to resist and rebuke that temptation. We have power over all the power of the enemy in Jesus Name.

No one can force someone to love God. Or for that matter someone else. It has to come from your heart and only when God gives that person a new heart. The Catholics did that in the past. They forced them or killed them or used them. No one can force the Holy Spirit to go into someone. If you have light, it is only because God shined that light into your darkness. Or you would have stayed dark forever. The glory is for the Lord, for without Him we would not be here discussing this things of God.

5. Our flesh will be completely healed when we die. In the mean time it is dying day by day. But only because of Christ. No one enters the gates of heaven with sin. We are promised that at death our bodies will be glorified. No more sin. Can a person sin now? yes. Is he slaved to sin? no. Is he perfect? no. Not until we are glorified. Can he keep himself sinless on his own, no. The Holy Spirit will convict him and he will change. The pattern of righteousness in him now.

4. if the Holy Spirit was NOT in us He would not speak to us. Christ is our Mediator, our High Priest speaking on our behalf. Without Him we are nothing. When I hear what others say, it is always what they can or cannot do. Eloy's words sound good but they are not true. He is looking at the picture from his view and not God's. We are who we are because of Christ. We are not saved yet but have been promised salvation. As Children of Promise we are justified now. Born of the Spirit. Sins are forgiven.

3. It is all for His glory. He makes it clear who created us and who we were. He tells us how bad we were and how we needed Christ to make things right with Him. But He wasn't telling this to the lost, the lost didn't understand that, He was telling us. He wants us to know where we came from and what He had to do. For Christ to die for us so we could see (us the believers) the prize He paid for us. So that when we witness we preach the truth. When He speaks to us He speaks to Christ in us.

2. The Word of God is for the believer, the unbeliever thinks its foolish to him. When Christ commands us to love the Lord you God, you can see as a Christian where you stand in that point. It is impossible to be a Christian and not have that love. The whole Bible is for Christian decipleship. To check where we are in our walk. God has a way of influencing us but its through the work of the Holy Spirit. When we were lost we had no help. We were on our own trying to be good, seperated from God.
---Lupe2618 on 1/30/06

Hello sister Darlene, I will answer you this way, I hope you just think about this. First I will answer you with God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit in my answer. "The reason you are on line right now is because Christ lives in you." if He didn't you would not be on line and be doing something worldly. Maybe planning how to party, go out, drink, hurt someone, etc. The reason you love Christ is not because you are forced to love Him but because He lives in you. You have a relationship with Him.
---Lupe2618 on 1/30/06

Lupe, Proof is in the putting. God doesn't want mere lip service, people who only say they love him, instead he wants action and works which prove the love they profess for him. If you love God, you will obey him and do what he tells you to do. This is proof that you love him. Jesus said, "If you love me, my commandments keep." Please read Matthew 7:21; 21:28-32.

Lupe, something to think about; God created man for fellowship with Him. He created man in His image.He wanted our fellowship for a reason, angels were compelled to worship God, but He wanted those who, from free will, would choose to worship God. If we are created in God's image, and we need love, then why wouldn't God need our love? He commanded us to love Him with our whole being. God needs our love because loving Him completely, brings obedience. Those with sold out love of God avoid sin.
---Darlene_1 on 1/30/06

3. Why do you even need Jesus for? He is not doing anything in your life anyway. Its all about you. Somewhere something is wrong with that thinking Eloy. I pray that one day you can see that point. That God is sovereign and He doesn't need your love, you need His love. Your whole dependence should be on Him and not on what you can do but on what He can and is doing in your life, because without Him you are nothing.
---Lupe2618 on 1/30/06

2. He already knows the reason why you write what you write. He knows the time you will die and whether you are saved or not. I don't know where you come out with all this stuff you tell. You make God into your own image. You give Him no credit at all. First of all you saved yourself, by been kind to Him, second you can walk away from your kindness and go your own way. Where is the Holy Spirit in all this? It seems to me He is no where to be found. How about His Omnipotence? or His Omniscience?
---Lupe2618 on 1/30/06

Eloy, God never said if you love me prove it. When He comes into someone's life, His love is in you Eloy. You love because He first loved you. We are obedient because we love Him, not because we are forced to love Him. God didn't tell Abraham to prove his love, God already knows and knew the heart of Abraham before he was born. How silly for you to say that. You are speaking about God as if He doesn't know yet what you are going to do or what you feel. He knows your heart.

No one wants to sin, but we all do. To suggest that one unrepented sin will keep us from heaven is to change the nature and effectiveness of the Atonement. Either it was sufficient for ALL of our sins, or NONE of them. There is no middle ground here. If the former is true, then nothing can keep the believer from heaven. If the latter is true, then nothing can get anyone into heaven. The first does not give us licence to live as libertines, the latter does not permit making ourselves good for heaven

Ulrika, you cannot isolate sin in the body, separate from the soul and spirit, because the body is a whole integrated unit. "For by one offering he has perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your entire spirit and life and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." Hebrews 10:14; I Thessalonians 5:23.

God says, Do you love me? then prove it by obeying me. And he proved Abraham, Abraham, do you love me? then kill your only child as a sacrifice to me. Job, do you still love me? eventhough I let the destroyer kill all your children and cursed your health and turned your wife and friends against you. Hosea, do you love me? then go marry a whore.; etc. Therefore, all the "faith only" and "sin supporters" are deceived, for faith without works is dead, and the wages of sin is death.

Eloy, God knows our heart, whether we really believe. It is very important to do good works. Ephesians 2:10 2Timothy 3:17 Titus 4-11,14 It shows that we believe. It helps us to be a witness. Because we love God, we want to serve and obey him. If we do not serve God, but serve sin, God will judge. Galatians 6:1-10 1Corinthians 3:11-17. Sin brings on death of the body. The soul and spirit are still saved. Romans 7:14-25 We are not perfect until we are changed and receive new bodies. 1Corinthians 15:50-52

2. Works are the results of someone who is saved. If you don't see works there is no Spirit in the person. In Romans 7 Paul is not denying sin, but he demonstrates a righteous reaction to sin by saying, "When I look at myself and I see my sin, the sin that is in me, that is, in my flesh, it operates according to a principle or a law that is different than the law that's in my heart. I love the law of God. I do the things I don't want to do; I don't do the things I do want to do."

The One who spoke and it was done, commanded and it stood fast has given His promise that He will complete the work begun (Phil 1:6).

Peter points out the steps in the work God does--adds to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge... and crowns the list with charity (love) saying that then we shall never fall (2 Peter 1:1-14).

You cannot earn salvation, It is by grace along and by nothing you do in and of yourself. Ulrika is correct in her statement.

The Jews looked at the law as a letter and judged by what they saw, completely rejecting the spirit of the law. They constantly accused Jesus (and thus God) of breaking the law, sinning. He said, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work (John 5:17) meaning doing good WORK on the Sabbath--no sin.

This question raises a number of issues, but we will just see what God says for a moment. Sin=transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). James 4:17 says that if we know to do good and do it not, then it is sin. Paul says (1 Cor 6:18) that every sin is without the body. Sin has to do with the mind, the heart--the intent, the rebellion, the disobedience in spirit to the law of love that leads to sin of action (Matt 12:34, Luke 6:45, compare Genesis 3:1-6 with Hebrews 11.

Ulrika, Anyone who claims to be saved by grace, but is not working for Christ is in error. If you are saved you will work, else your religion is in vain. We are commanded to do the works of Christ and bear good fruit, salvation is not an excuse for non-work. You don't work, then you don't eat; you don't work, you die. Remember the fig tree which had no fruit? Jesus desired fruit from it but it produced none, therefore he cursed it, and no more fruit ever came of it again.

Dear Ulrika, UPC stands for United Pentecostal Churches. I joined one in July of 2005 and I love it. We are pretty strict, skirts, long hair, no jewerly, and no make up. I wear my cross, though. Take care and God Bless!! Nancy

Some people are very legalisticl. Some though they know they are saved by grace, through faith, they think they need to work to keep that salvation. Romans 3:24 Ephesians 2:4-9

What does UPC stand for?
---Ulrika on 1/28/06

Mat,please don't lump all Pentecostal Beliefs together under UPC. Study others beliefs before you condemn them. Most are very different from UPC. I've been Pentecostal all my life and I wear rings. We aren't all fanatics unless I'm a fanatic about jewelry,I love it. There aren't many Pentecoastal Churches as rigid as UPC is.

No wonder the world is against Christianity! Hundreds of religions. Each one believes the others are going to hell, if they don't talk like them, dress like them, act like them, and think like them. They are so busy sending each other to hell. Pentecostal religions are the worse! My UPC daughter thinks I'm going to hell because I wear my wedding ring, and her UPC uncle thinks she's going to hell because she has a TV and computer. You should all be ashamed of yourselves!!!! GROW UP!!!!

When we are saved, we are born again spirituallly. John 3:3-8
Christians get a new body, when Christ comes and we are raptured. Our old sinful body does not go to heaven. 1Corinthians 15:42-54 1Thessalonians 4:13-17.

"He that committeth sin is of the devil." (1 John 3:8)

I agree with mima, read through the first few chapters of Romans. 3:10, 3:23, 6:23. There is none righteous, all have sinned, the wages of sin is death. Ephesians 2:8-9, for by GRACE you are saved, THROUGH FAITH, and not of yourself, IT IS the gift of God.
This is a good thing, with all of us being sinners, we would not ever be allowed in Heaven.

To those who think that your belief in Jesus and His sacrifice gives you license to commit future sin, I would warn you as did Paul; "let him that thinketh he standeth take heed, lest he fall." (1Cor 10:12) That Jesus' forgiveness only covers past sins is evidenced by His words to Mary. After His forgiveness of her adultery, He said "GO AND SIN NO MORE." (John8:11) The sins of ignorance, however are not accounted since "the times of this ignorance God winked at." (Acts17:30)
