John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Question? If Jesus told you to sin no more, would you respond by saying, "I cant," or "I dont believe you" or "No one can do it, but You?" This seems to be the response most people have today.
|YOU SAID IT!
When I went to the Orthodox church, after communion we were 'cleansed' from sin and we used to pray that we'd make it through the rest of the day without sinning. Thank God I've got Jesus now who keeps me from sin ALL the time. Romans 6, "...How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? "- M. J. / CALGARY
In my Catholic church, my priest never tells us to "sin no more," instead he talks a lot about forgiveness. He teaches us to forgive others and to ask the Lord for forgiveness. But I know that in order to receive forgiveness, we have to stop sinning. Most people don't see that. I think if we try very hard, put our minds to it, we can stop sinning. It's not as hard as people think it is, although you have to make a conscious decision to stop. Many people think that it's impossible to stop and even that sometimes you don't even know when you sin! I don't know about them, but I would know if I am lying or stealing. - C. H. / CALGARY
First of all, I must declare that I believe in perfect holiness. I have learned the true Word of "GOD" and after all these years I have kept the commandments of "JESUS". This is the only way to show my love for "JESUS". Also, by keeping his commandments, it is the best demonstration for people around me to see that I'm not sinning anymore!
If you believe that "JESUS" forgives you everytime you sin, you've been taught wrongly. Since "JESUS" has been crucified for our sins, we don't have any reason to justify sins we will commit... otherwise "JESUS" died for nothing if you continue to sin and you keep asking for forgiveness. There is no such plan from "GOD" in his Word. - M. M. / MONTREAL
People always tell me even Paul couldn't stop sinning. Probably the most used chapter is Romans 7 to say that Paul was a sinner, and died such. But all who quote from that chapter never use verse 25, or if they do, they twist it to their own doctrine. If you read that verse carefully (in a KJV) you will see that Paul didn't say he was a sinner, he said that, now through Christ he serves the "Law" of sin. It doesn't say he serves sin! It says he serves the Law of sin. When you serve the Law of sin, you are not breaking the Law of sin, so then he that serves this law is no longer a sinner. I also serve the Law of sin, and I sin not. - P. G. / EDMONTON
The Bible says "We know that God heareth not sinners" ...the Bible says behold your sin will find you out ...I was on the street car going home from work and the people who have long faces stay clear of me reading the Bible ...I can discern darkness for it is written gross darkness shall cover this people ...the worst sin is not obeying God by getting into the Bible and start to take heed for we must all face the judgement seat of Christ ...and give an account thereof ...as a security guard I obey my boss as it is written to obey your master in the flesh especially the forward ...people obey their boss but not the real boss the Lord ...as it is written "If I be a master where is my honor ...if I be a servant where is my fear?" Who fears God today? Where is the scribe and where is the prudent? But my people doth not know me saith the Lord for my people perish for lack of knowledge ...for when they once knew God they glorified him not as God ...therefore God turned them over to a reprobate mind to do those things which are not convenient ...the Bible is not just a book you read and put down ...the minute you put down the Bible the Holy Ghost will be after you ...and just like Annais and Saphira, God will ask people who give up the Bible and walk in the paths of darkness, "How is it that ye have agreed to tempt the Spirit of the Lord." For the wages of sin is death ...except ye repent ye shall likewise perish ...for God saith he will make thee sick and desolate because of your sins ...The bottom line is to awake to righteousness and sin not, putting on the breast plate of righteousness, a helmet of salvation, your feet shod in the preparation of the gospel of peace ...as it is also written how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel ...speaking truth in love ...which is the bond of perfection ...for such an entrance ye shall have and never fall if these things abound in you ...sin not and fear God is the first commandment of promise...
