    And taking a shit isn't actually a sin. God appeared rather more concerned about personal hygiene, telling them to dig a hole outside the camp to go and then cover it up.

    I believe we are still called to repent and be free of sin.

    i believe we just need to accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour

    confess your sins if it makes u feel better, but He already knows what we've done and will do

    it's impossible to repent for all your sins

    hence the spilling of Jesus' blood

    i like miscreant! damn son that was deep and i feel so many of those points my view stance is very similar, and about jesus, and the new commandments.


    "Jesus said, If you love Me, you will keep My commandments" (Jn. 14:15). (He DID NOT say to keep the Mosaic Law, if you are a Christian.)"

    The first of all the commandments is...thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these (Mk. 12:29-31).

    Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you (Mt. 5:44).

    Be ye...merciful as your Father also is merciful (Lk. 6:36).

    Let love be without dissimulation [hypocrisy] (Rm. 12:9a).

    Younger [men], submit yourselves unto the elder [men]. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble (1 Pet. 5:5).

    i think these were the christ's biggest message!

    To paraphrase, 'You heard it was said that whoever murders will be in danger of judgment.' Jesus was drawing from the law as he spoke that. 'But I say whoever is angry with his brother is in danger of judgment.' Jesus took the same law that was written before his arrival in the flesh, and he went further with it.

    'You have heard it was said, you shall not commit adultery,' drawing again from the old law did Jesus. What did he do with this one? 'Whoever LOOKS at a woman to lust for her has ALREADY committed adultery.' Again, he took the old law and went further with it.

    'Again, you have heard it was said to those of old, You shall not bear false witness but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.' Are we beginning to see a theme here? What does Jesus say next? 'But I say to you, do not swear AT ALL: neither by Heaven (God's throne), by earth (his footstool), nor Jerusalem the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head because you are not able to make one hair white or black.'

    You, by your own head, are not able to make one hair white or black? What is he saying here? This is akin to saying 'You can't tell what is right from wrong on your own, you need God to do it for you.'

    Then he goes onto the turning the other cheek, and the love your enemies bit.



    AND BESIDES, the book of Romans is a New Testament book (NOT PART OF THE TORAH OR PART OF THE TANAKH Old Testament).

    i agree entirely

    the biggest thing Jesus was about was love and forgiveness

    every Gospel emphasizes this message

    and if you could imagine a world where every man, woman and child were able to be full of nothing but love and forgiveness

    well, just imagine it

    no hate, resentment, jealousy, envy, deceit, dishonor, disloyalty, and so on

    Jesus' message

    love and forgive

    who the fuck are we not to forgive one another for our acts when God has already forgiven us for every single one of our sins by sacrificing Jesus?

    I don't remember saying confess your sins.

    How is it impossible to repent for all your sins? If you have truly accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour (and don't take this as contention because it's not) then chances are you have already repented.

    We don't count repentance by each confession, but God judges the hearts of men.

    i assumed your meaning of repent as in the Catholic Church

    and u can't really repent without confessing

    and a bunch of Hail Mary's and Our Father's isn't enough to repent

    it's natural to feel regret/remorse when u know you've done something wrong

    God doesn't want us to go around feeling sorry for ourselves, full of remorse and what not

    love Jesus

    acknowledge His sacrifice

    have faith

    it's not really complicated

    the devil tries to make it so

    no he didn't

    but he did pay the price of OUR breaking of the laws (sinning) by his crucifixion

    by the spilling of his blood

    that was why he came

    and to spread the message of LOVE and FORGIVENESS

    because God knows not one many ever will never not sin

    but God loves us so much he created a way to forgive us

    through the sacrifice of Jesus

    Never been Catholic, but strongly Protestant. I just, at a time, came to a point in my life when I was about 16 where I didn't want to be a Christian who just hopped on the Jesus train and then napped the whole way to my destination.

    There's no reason to be sulky, but I think some feeling of remorse is exactly what the God of the Bible wants. If he didn't, there wouldn't have put the serpent in the garden. But maybe.... MAYBE he put the serpent in the garden as his very own scapegoat, because maybe he knew that man would eventually sin anyway even if he didn't put the serpent there. He gave us a scapegoat in Christ, but... certainly death would never have come into the world if the devil didn't try and make it so. Perhaps the devil is God's scapegoat. You can't go around acting perfect all the time without a little bit of bloodlust now, can you?

    God has no control of Satan

    hmmm

    that's a big statement

    the serpent in Eden had nothing to do wit God

    i'm not 100% on what i just said

    i know i'm not a christian but it seems to me that to 'accept jesus as your personal savior' you also need to accept his teachings... which is why the verse momento posted is relevant since jesus made it clear that he wasn't loosening the rules at all but actually expanding them.. to look at a woman lustfully is now adultery etc.. hence the need for a savior since nobody can live up to that impossible standard.. hence the need to repent for your sins. but you can't actually repent without believing in the laws in the first place. otherwise it becomes meaningless to repent at all, like miscreant pointed out. but if the law is meaningless then the teachings of jesus were meaningless and so was his sacrifice.

    Its not his creation thats wrong its the idolitry of them. Anything u put b4 God is wrong. Same w weed, its not his creation thats wrong but the abuse. Like many people attempt to quote partial scriptures like "money" is the root of evil when its the 'love' of money

    Jesus died as to take the punishment for our sins which ultimately shouldve been us dying. But him being sinless fullfilled mankinds punishment for past present an even future sins we may commit. However we are still to try and get better and better eaxh step of the way.
