No one is perfect and everyone will make errors in judgment, mistakes, and even sin. No Christian feels good about doing these things, at least they shouldn’t and when they make those errors, there is some good news.
2 Bible verses should give everyone joy and peace of mind:
“I, I alone, am the one who wipes out your wrongdoings for My own sake, (Is. 43:25)
“And their sins and their lawless deeds
I will no longer remember.” (Hebrews 10:17)
Then there is:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 9)
This is what makes the Christian faith better than any other religion in the world and better than what atheists and unbelievers send your way. When we honestly repent, God doe snot hold our sins over our heads and bash us with them. Those deeds are done and gone.
It is not permission to continue to sin as Jesus said, go and sin no more to the woman caught in adultery. It is also a warning to all of us 2000 years later as we have no permission to sin. But it happens which is why we can count on God’s grace and have a happier life.
We have someone who makes things better than the unbelieving world could ever offer. Being free from the sins of our past allows us to minister as God wants and not worry about our past lives.
However, the unbelieving world is not like God. They will remember your sins and hold them over your head even if you have had a change of life. They will use whatever they can to keep a Christian from being effective for God.
Whether it is envy, jealousy, or hatred, they will distort what took place for their own sinful purposes. Why Christians leave the faith for that type of treatment and world boggles the mind. They are giving up everything, for nothing.
They are joining a world that will beat them up, distort everything in your past, and then criticize you if you do not respond to them in a manner they think is Christian. In other words, you are never going to win with unbelievers unless God puts conviction in their hearts.
Don’t even try to defend yourselves as it only makes things worse. They are not God and they are sinning by using those sinful tactics against you. There are 125 verses in the Bible using the word forgive in them.
One of the most important verses for the Christian is this one:
But if you do not forgiveother people, then your Father will not forgive your offenses. (Mt. 6:15)
We heard from that letter writer again and we have forgiven him or her for the hatred they have sent our way. We have also forgiven BG for the horrible words he keeps writing about us. It is up to both of those parties to forgive if they want to have their sins forgiven.
When Jesus was on the cross, some of his final words were ‘forgive them for they know not what they do..’ That is the way it is with unbelievers they do not know what they are doing. They are blinded by hatred, deceit, lies, and more.
They think they know what they are doing but they don’t. Turn the other cheek and let God deal with them.
One thought on “God Will Forget Your Sins…But People Won’t”
P.S. If you read BGs website, the answer is NO, we are not saying those false accusations are true. We are saying that Christians are not perfect.
The fact that the author of comment one there thinks we would go after him or her is ridiculous. He or she is being melodramatic to get people to believe his false stories.
