Anonymous asked: I'm really curious to know something and I really do hope you answer this because I'm confused. If God made us they way we are and knew we would do all the things we do since we were born, why would He want us to sin? Why would be "design" us to sin? For example, why would He "design" someone to be sexually active? Also, if God forgets our sins, isn't He reminded of it if we constantly pray asking for forgiveness for a particular sin?
he did not design us to sin, but we fell to sin because we were created to God’s image, a pure image, a sinless image, but like Him, He gave us free will, and told adam, not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. now God did create sex, and He wanted it to be good!!! i mean Jesus wants us to be fruitful and to multiply! BUT He made sex with the intention to be a representation of LOVE, how much He loves us, how much He loves the church! that He made a sacrifice, He made vows made with blood! meaning himself as a sacrifice to give grace and hope to His beloved people!
soooooo yeah! and we remind God of our sins because we don’t trust in Him, we say we do, but we keep reminding Him, like as if someone owes us something, like “God, did you do what i wanted yet?” when in reality that statement should be said like, “God thank you for forgiving my sins! each and everyday you make me new, with new beginning and new chances!”
so yeah, Jesus is cool, just a bit misunderstood (if your thinking on your “flesh” meaning logical sense)
God bless you anon!
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: I have a question: Why doesn't 'God' Stop rapists and murderers?
For the same reason He doesn’t stop all other sin - the fact that He created us with moral capacity and free will, which is what makes us different from mere animals. Free will would be meaningless if God said, “I give you the right to choose good or evil, but whenever you choose evil I’ll jump in and make sure nobody gets hurt”.
Although that would be great… it doesn’t work like that.
The real question is why do men fill their hearts with such evil to commit such hideous crimes. God is a just and merciful God and perfect in all His ways. He doesn’t desire the death of sinners but that all should come to repentance and even with the evil that men commit, He makes a way of escape for the victims. As much as we try to understand.. just know that God’s ways are higher than our ways and He doesn’t think as we do. So trust His judgment and have faith in Him, you’ll see it all works for good, as hard as it is to believe.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” - Isaiah 55:8-9
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” - Proverbs 3:5
Anonymous asked: Is making out a sin? Like, without touching sexually and doing sexual stuff with it? Just kissing alot basically.
now i wont answer this, BUT i will put some scriptures to put into thought.
You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial.
1 Corinthians 10:23
Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
2 Timothy 2:22
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.
1 Corinthians 8:9
i can quote the WHOOOLLLEEEE BIBLE, but only you can get an answer from God. so i exhort you anon dude, read, study, and meditate.
you know that law that says “every action, has a RE-action”
well it applies to this. its a slippery road anon dude. meditate in the word of God so Jesus can be revealed!
serve Jesus before your own desires, because desires like this may stray you from the path of righteousness!
God bless anon!
for the person who commented, it is the same to everyone, again, its a slippery slope to EVERYONE. because one thing will lead to the other. so don’t boast on evil, but be humble in the good.dont take liberties for granted, and lets say you CAN make out with someone and not be tempted or lustful, and God forbid you make someone stumble, and think “hey making out is not bad” then they fall, oh God, the consequences is not good, not on their part, but on yours. be blessed brother but don’t condone or give a reason to sin. i really dont wanna see people perish.
Love you cscott9595!
Anonymous asked: hi you know how romans 13:14 says we shouldnt plan when to do our earthy desires i find this hard does this mean i shouldnt do things like plan when to go to th cinema or when i put new songs on my ipod or go 2 a lace 2 eat?
That would be taking it to an extremity, in the same way the Pharisees took things, to an extremity. (Religiousness).
Living a Righteous life is putting on Jesus like a suit of clothes. It is abiding in Him and living out His life.In that verse, Paul is instructing us to make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. The term that is rendered “provision” implies forethought, planning, and activity. And in Greek literature outside of the New Testament, the term is used of a “premeditated crime”.
Sin seldom just happens! And I think we can all agree that most of the time, sin is premeditated meaning that we know that it’s sin to do something and still do it anyways). Sin is a link in a chain of events. So when we surrender to the lusts of our flesh, it is often not a sudden collapse, but instead the culmination of a process.
The sins of our flesh are those sins about which we have given much thought and for which we have made provision. If we are to be Victorious over sin and the flesh, we must cease to make provision for it. So in basic, In Romans 13, God is telling us to live with a heart abandoned to His will. He is also telling us to live a life of sacrifice for Him (live for Christ) and surrender our thoughts and hearts to Him so that He can help us and guide us to living a sinless life (which we can only do in due time with Jesus’ help).
Stay Brutally Brutal, bruh!
Anonymous asked: what does it mean to be free from sin?
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness… But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. — Rom 6:18, 22
“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life
set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1-4)
So, It means that sin is no longer your boss or your master.
Anonymous asked: My friend sins a lot then asks for forgiveness and thinks everything is okay and he can do it again just as long as he repents. Is that wrong?
Yes. That is very wrong to do.
Repenting and still continuing to sin willfully is an abomination to God. Yes, God will forgive your friend’s sins if he repents, but what he’s doing is mocking God and God will not be mocked.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” - Galatians 6:7
If your friend is truly born again and has the Holy Spirit residing in him, he should then feel convicted of the sins he commits and want to repent, and try more then his best to not commit that sin again.
“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom” - Proverbs 9:10
God bless <3
Anonymous asked: Is it alright to believe in God but not consider yourself a christian? I have my own reason for this and all, but that takes up a lot of explanation. I believe that our God sent his son to die for us and all of that, but I don't like the thought of calling myself a christian if I keep doing.. non christian stuff. Understand me? Kinda? eh. It's complicated in my eyes.
Your problem doesn’t come from a term, it comes from feeling unworthy. The term was coined by others outside of the fellowship at Antioch in Acts 11:26.
We are not accepted or justified by our own righteousness. Romans 5:1 We are justified through faith. Our spirit is righteous, the Holy Spirit indwells us and we’re dead to sin , Rom 6:11, Romans 6:6, Col 3:3.
We’re a new creation, 2 Cor 5:17. IF we sin, Christ is our advocate 1 John 2. Just because there is sin doesn’t mean you aren’t born again. We are made new though, and have the power to never sin again. It’s when we realize that through faith we’re made new but that there’s forgiveness when we mess up, fail, disobey. It shouldn’t be lifestyle, but is assurance that we aren’t held down because we mess up.
