  1. Have you never read?

    (Heb 10:26-27NIV) If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

    Yes, it is true that we are saved by grace, but are you really repentant when you sin? No. If we can’t get past true repentance, we can never get to the goal of our hope, even our salvation.

    Yes, your parents were wrong. It is not good people who go to heaven if they do not remain obedient to God for all their lives. Yes, your parents were wrong when they say only good people go to heaven. For heaven is full of many bad people who repented.

    God sums it up nicely:

    (Ezek 18:20-30NIV) The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him. “But if a wicked man turns away from all the sins he has committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, he will surely live; he will not die. None of the offenses he has committed will be remembered against him. Because of the righteous things he has done, he will live. Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live? “But if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked man does, will he live? None of the righteous things he has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness he is guilty of and because of the sins he has committed, he will die. “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear, O house of Israel: Is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? If a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin, he will die for it; because of the sin he has committed he will die. But if a wicked man turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he will save his life. Because he considers all the offenses he has committed and turns away from them, he will surely live; he will not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Are my ways unjust, O house of Israel? Is it not your ways that are unjust? “Therefore, O house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall.

  2. Yes,I agree with you.We are saved my grace in faith in Jesus Christ.I don’t believe that we are to keep on sinning after we are saved.That is not a sign of true repentence.

  3. I was left with the empression that it was ok to live a sinful life. Good to Know.

    Frustrating sometimes when we jumble our passion with our words. I do it all the time.

  4. To Glasseyedave here is another bible verse from 1 John Chapter 1:5-10

    5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

    6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

    7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

  6. And to this we all say, Amen.

  7. I think the point of the verse mentioned above (Heb 10:26-27NIV) is in “If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth.” To me that seems to say that if we receive knowledge of the truth and then continue in our old lifestyle; in other words – reject the truth, that no sacrifice for sins is left. Once we receive the message of the truth our destiny depends on whether we accept it or not.

    We will sin as long as we are living in the sinful world, but our acceptance of Christ cleanses us of our transgressions.

    Great post and discussion!

  8. To sin or not to sin that is the question.

    Maybe you are like me and have heard fellow Christians and Pastors talk about a life of sin or those habitual sins? I know for me I still find myself in conversations that talk about sin in this context.
    It is funny to me, we believers try to quantify how much sin is acceptable to God and how much not. Of course we will never agree to how much of what type of sin is acceptable because we all have different points of view on what sins are the most grievous.
    Have we forgotten the instructions we have received?
    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
    It is not funny to me, that the whole discussion is essentially, how much can we make God put up with our sins, but yet never cross the line where He says, “You’re out of here!” Either because you believe you were never saved in the first place and one’s life shows it, or you may be in the other camp saying one lost their salvation.
    (This blog’s purpose is to show that we as Christians do not posses salvation yet, so both views above are not The Gospel According to the Gospel.
    http://thegospelaccordingtothegospel.wordpress.com/posses-salvation/)
    In either case the result is the same for many believers, a lifestyle of acceptable sins and acceptable degrees of sin because God knows we are sinners. The proof of this is in the pudding. How many sermon topics deal with our fallen nature and our need to live like believers should? Of course, I know that it is out of style to preach about holiness anymore, so we talk about controlling our anger, loving our wives and don’t drink, smoke and chew or go out with girls that do.
    And this is where once again I find myself saying, “I was sold a different gospel.” What I read in scripture for the believers is not a definition of the degree of sin, nor the quantity that is acceptable for the reborn in Christ. Instead I read that he who sins is of the devil! Not a growing Christian as so many have put it. I read that anyone born of God can not sin. If I were to say it another way it would be can not, can not, can not.
    So do I accept the gospel of man where Christians discus sin as if there is a degree of acceptability in a believer’s life for sin, as long as they are trying to grow? Or do I believe in The Gospel According to the Gospel which states:
    Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
    For me I can no longer participate in conversations concerning what is a sinful lifestyle. I just want to live and be transformed like a real believer. If we can not sin if we remain in Him and those who sin are the children of the devil, why should any of us play with fire?
