What is the unpardonable sin? Andrew, Bob, and Richard discuss this troublesome topic. * I’ve been attending a church where all are welcome. But I’m confused since the female pastor married her female partner. * Angelo calls to say, “Thank you. I really understood the grace message yesterday like I never have before.” * Should we pray to God or Jesus? * What is the “unworthy manner” in 1 Corinthians 11 concerning the Lord’s Supper?
Forgiveness is such a critical message. One aspect of forgiveness is so radical is that God doesn’t keep a list of our sins. We fear that God has all of this filed and categorized, but that’s not the case. Jesus died for everyone of those sins and God says, “He chooses to remember them no more”. Love keeps no records of wrongs. 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.” * Is there a limit to God’s grace? * In light of grace does God judge our stewardship? * If Jesus died for once for our sin, why do we have to continue to ask for forgiveness? * Does sin block us from a relationship from God? * If one commits suicide, where is the opportunity to ask forgiveness?
Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. And that’s what Jesus did. He shed His blood so we could have forgiveness of sins. So many ask, are you saying since we are forgiven we can do anything we want? That question was asked and answered by Paul in Romans 6 * Does Hebrews 6:4,5 describe a lost or saved person? * If someone accepts Christ and commits suicide will they go to Heaven or Hell? * Romans 8:29 “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”
Knowing all our sins are forgiven opens the door to a new life. People have a hard time forgiving themselves and feel that they are unworthy of God. Let go of your past. Receive His Spirit and you will be His child with a new life and a brand new identity. * What are the ramifications of sin to a believer? The wages of sin is death. What does sin do to us spiritually? Does it change what God thinks of me? * Will sin keep us out of Heaven? Don’t we have to repent every time we sin? Salvation is more than just forgiveness. We are born again form death to life. Christ is the guarantee of our salvation.* What is sin? It is transgression of the law. The root of all sin is unbelief * Was David born again? Can we walk away from God? Salvation is by grace and He will never leave us. Faithful is He and not us.
One of the reasons people can’t forgive themselves is they feel unworthy or unlovable. We see this in the prodigal son in Luke 14. The son ended up eating with the pigs. His father’s servants ate better. He felt unworthy as he went back to his father. But God, our Heavenly Father, sees us as worthy and has sent His Son to show us that we are worthy and He loves us. * Will the rapture happen before the devil and his demons are released? * Thanks for talking to my friend Martin. Can you explain Luke 12 “he who humbles himself will be exalted”? * I like to comfort my stress level with drinking Wine, after work, and or on the weekends. I realize that keeping up with this old habit is only giving me foggy vision. How do I walk in the spirit and not in the flesh? * Do you have to speak in tongues to be saved? * Should we be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost or Jesus only? * How can Jesus’ words to the Samaritan woman and His words to Nicodemus apply to me?
The subject of forgiveness is such and important subject. Andrew writes about this in his first book, “The Naked Gospel”. Truth is truth and Christian, the truth is, you are a forgiven person. * Is 1 John 1:9 written to Christians? * Is 1 John 1:9 written to Christians? http://store.basicgospel.net * What is the difference between restoration and retribution?
Why can’t I forgive myself? You hear that question a lot. People accept God’s forgiveness for them, but they still can’t seem to forgive themselves. Today is Reason #1 – I’m Basically Good. * There are some who believe that even if you’re divorced God doesn’t see you as divorced. What do you think about this? * What is the church-age? * If God is not counting our sins against us and we are not condemned, then why would we end up standing before Christ to give an account of the things we did, both good and bad? * What would happen to a person saved in childhood who no longer goes to church?
