Re: Thoughts on what brings God's blessings

Jesus warned against sin in the church, and then promises life to the one who overcomes. Peter warned about those who escaped the pollutiins of the world and then get entangled therein and overcome by them.

How much sin is acceptable to God?

Pollutions of the world=old covenant law/ system.


I believe that if one is truly converted they will hate sin and yield to God to overcome. One big issue is false conversion .its a huge issue, at least where we are at. I just don't think those text are saying what you believe they are.

Hence REMISSION of sins?

The big difference is we wont even have the ability to sin, we will be in a glorified state.

What verses do you use which say we have no longer the ability to sin.
Which would indicate no free will to choose. You do understand the implications of what you just posted?

Re: Thoughts on what brings God's blessings

It is also interesting how many Christian groups believe that you cannot stop sining. That you are incapable of going without sin until your own death, burial, and your own resurrection. Nullifying anything you have done while you were alive walking in the Holy Ghost, living for Jesus. Sort of removes all responsibility on our part, due to our own future death, burial, and resurrection. We are told in 1st John 3 that whoever sins is of the devil. But the OT, and NT seem silent where heaven is accessible to those who instead of “go and sin NO MORE” they are to “go and try to sin less.”
