I don’t know what you’re going through right now but whatever it is know that God loves you very much and there’s nothing you can do or ever do that will make Him stop loving you.
The way you come to repentance is by first recognizing that you have sinned (done wrong) and admitting that sin to God. Next, forgive all those who have hurt or wronged you and then ask God for His forgiveness and ask Him for help to not commit this sin again.
It is written in the Word that if you ask God for forgiveness He is just and faithful to forgive you. (1 John 1:9)
Once you have repented know that you are forgiven.
If you don’t know Jesus and want to, please say this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus…
I come to you today and confess that I need you.
Please come into my heart. Jesus be my Lord and Saviour.
Wash Me. Cleanse Me. And Forgive Me.
Of all my sins. Thank for giving me a brand new start.
Today I open my life to you. I am now the child of The King.
Anonymous asked: Will God forgive me if i had sex before i was married?
We all mess up and there is not one perfect being out there. Take a look at the people Jesus hung out with - not one of them had it together but Jesus still loved and cared for them none the less. He also forgave them for everything they’ve done.
God loves all His children and He is more then willing to forgive us if we ask Him to. But please keep in mind that although God is a God of forgiveness, God will and will never be mocked (Galatians 6:7). This means, if you have the mentality of thinking “I’ll do bad now (sin) and ask for forgiveness later” … then I’m afraid you’ve got the wrong mindset. If a christian feels no guilt or shame and willfully sin, then it is highly likely that they were never saved. So many agree mentally with the Bible but have no personal relationship with the Lord of the Bible. That is, they never had a “heart” belief. “for with the heart man believes unto rightousness.” Part of being saved is honestly trying to be a better person and truly trying to make yourself a better person. A True Christian would learn from their wrong ways and try everything they can to not do them again.
The act of asking for forgiveness from Christ when you truly believe is what saves you. But to answer your question, if you ask for forgiveness with real repentance that sin will be forgiven (1 John 1:9).
Anonymous asked: If a person is blasphemous, then repents, will God forgive that person? Like for example, my friend is an atheist, but if he were to repent, would God forgive him and would he be accepted into heaven?
Shyeah Brah! God is a God of justice & He is also a God of love. (Is_30:18 & 1 John 4:8). He’s merciful (Deut_4:31) And The bible also tells us that God is quick to forgive. (Colossians_3:13).
And so I strongly believe that God can forgive anyone He wants to forgive, at any moment in time and in any place He wants to forgive them (Romans 9:18) God knows every heart and the intents of our thoughts. (Ps_139:1-4)
God’s forgiveness all depends on a persons repentance. It has to genuine, true and strong-felt to the core of intense humbleness.. And it’s then when God is open to truly forgiving anyone from anything *if and only if He wants to*.
Be Blessed, kid!
Anonymous asked: I've got it in my head that God only forgives your sins from before you accepted Him. I know that sounds crazy, but when I look at verses on salvation, they seem to be used in the past tense. Such as, 'He forgave us'. I know how weird it sounds to think that, but it's really bothering/upsetting me. Do you know any verses that reject this thought? That as Christians, we will continue to sin, but God will still forgive us? Prayers would be appreciated also. Thank you.
No way, dude! God forgives all thee time. Satan (father of lies, John 8:44) likes to put wild and crazy thoughts in our mind sometimes, bro. He knows that those thoughts in the long run will separate you from God. Don’t let him win. In Jesus name rebuke those thoughts and rest asure that God will forgive you if you ask Him to.
“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” - 1 John 1:7
I’m totally down to pray for you, friend.
Anonymous asked: I did something terrible a few months ago. I gave my bf a blowjob for the first time. We aren't together anymore and ever since then I've been regretting that action and thinking God hates me. I'm scared my family and friends will find out. I'm scared I'll never forgive myself. I am trying to go to Confessions but I don't want to beg my mom to take me because she'll question why I'm so eager. I want to kill myself to end my misery. My thoughts eat me alive. What if I go to hell?
God doesn’t hate you, He knew everything you were going to do even before you were born. (Psalm 139:13-16, Luke 1:15, Jeremiah. 1:5) God loves you very much! That’s why He sent His son Jesus to die in your place. God knew that if He didn’t do anything about it there would be no hope for us at all. I want to let you know that every single person on earth sins. Even the people who come off as “the most holy” sin. There is not one person who doesn’t sin because we all sin.
I encourage you to ask God for His forgiveness for your action. God knows your heart and He will forgive you if you ask Him. You don’t need to go to confession to confess your sins to someone. Just sincerely ask Jesus right where you are to forgive you. He’ll listen to you and forgive you. You did something that you regret. You realized it and aren’t going to do it again. Don’t spend the rest of the time wishing you could undo it. Learn from your mistakes and move on!
God loves you, brosis!

Just as God tells us: if we asked Him for forgiveness then He will forgive us. And guess what? it doesn’t stop there!! God even tells us that He will remember our sin no more! (Hebrews 8:12, Isaiah 43:25, Jeremiah 31:34, Hebrews 10:17) How awesome is that, anon?!
Now, I want to add this: If God, your creator can forgive you and even choose to not remember you sin.. then who are we to keep punishing ourselves? Kinda makes you think, huh? :)
Take a look at this post:
God bless you, anon! We love you. <3
Anonymous asked: I know you already have a section for masturbation but none of them seem to have this question. My problem is that I try so hard not to masturbate and I pray to god to help me through it. Most of the times he does. but there are those times where I just do it. So my main point here is does God still forgive me even though I keep on repeating the same sin? I've been repeating this sin for almost 4 years. and I pray for forgivness but I i've asked for forgiveness for the same sin over and over.
God calls us to repent of all our sins, so that all our sins can be wiped away. When we repent God wipes the slate clean and keeps no record of our wrong doings. (Acts 3:19, Psalm 51:1, Hebrews 8:12, Jeremiah 31:31-34)
The Word of God tells us that God is just and faithful to forgive all our sins if we confess them to Him.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” - 1 John 1:9
“Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” -Matthew 18:21-22
Now, when Jesus says to forgive someone 7 times 70, He wasn’t limiting forgiveness to 490 times. But what /he was implying is to always forgive those who offend you no matter the number of times they offend you. This means God will do just the same.
There is no limit to God’s forgiveness even if it’s for the same sin, but please keep in mind that this should not encourage us to keep on sinning or keep committing the same sin over and over again on purpose. We don’t encourage anyone to do this because even though God will forgive you, scripture also tells us that God will not be mocked.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” - Galatians 6:7

Anonymous asked: (cont) for my forgiveness. I have never been mad at him or anything, but I don't really want to talk to him. He said that I "despise him at school" when we have never talked at school & I've never talked about him either. I don't really want to forget about what he did, but I know that Jesus would do something different then what I'm doing. I guess my question is what do I do when people say inappropriate things to me, and should I forgive him?
Love Your Enemies
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies. Pray for those who treat you badly. If you do this, you will be children who are truly like your Father in heaven. He lets the sun rise for all people, whether they are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do right and to those who do wrong. If you love only those who love you, why should you get a reward for that? Even the tax collectors do that. And if you are nice only to your friends, you are no better than anyone else. Even the people who don’t know God are nice to their friends. What I am saying is that you must be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” - Matthew 5:43-48
I know forgiveness might be a very hard thing to do, but this is what Jesus calls us to do. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean your belittling yourself.. in fact it’s just the opposite. It means your the stronger person in the situation and you’re doing exactly what God wants you to do and because you follow what God wants you will be rewarded.
God bless! <3
