What if someone gets saved but then commits a sin?

Recommended Posts

Hm... every believer who has ever lived did that every day. What happens? Their sin marred their fellowship with the Lord until they got their sin right.

What if they die before they get their sin right?

Are you a believer, and if so, what position are you coming at these questions from? I can't help you until you help me. If I don't know how to frame my answers, we'll be talking past each other.

I don't subscribe to the "you sin every day" camp.

I have had days where I didn't sin. I was attune to where my eyes looked and didn't even look upon a billboard with a half naked girl on it. I didn't have sinful thoughts cuz I was singing hymes all day. That doesn't mean I never sin though.

Right now, in my life, I'm so tainted by sin it's shameful. I wonder where my resolve has gone. I marvel at how I walked with God but can so easily walk away from Him.

I don't excuse it though. I don't try to pretend some of the things in my life are alright and God will understand. I'm a realist, that I'm deep down rebelling and rejecting God.

IF I COULD FIGURE OUT WHY MAYBE I COULD FIGURE THIS OUT

I'm only upset with myself though. I know it's my fault and my rebellion and my shame. At the same time though, I know God is there waiting for me to stop being stupid and turn back fully toward Him. Even with my worst moments, including tonight, I talked to someone about Jesus.

I sin. I weep that I do, but I sin. God wouldn't of forgiven my past sins if He wasn't going to forgive my future sins though, it would be stupid of God to say "well I did all I can and you told a lie soooooooooo... welcome to hell." That's not the God I turn too and ask to forgive me because I'm too stupid to realize how badly I'm rebelling. I don't need daily forgiveness for salvation. I'm going to heaven, because I trusted in the price Jesus paid. I could kill people, lie cheat and steal all I want and I'd still go to heaven. I'm sure of that because Jesus paid the price. It's because of that I feel so horrible when I fall short, and at the same time want to hug Jesus more BECAUSE I fall short.

If you're worried about sinning after salvation, realize that Jesus is a constantly moving force in your life, and instead of looking at yourself as the world sees you and looking at yourself through YOUR eyes, look at yourself through God's eyes as you're washed in the blood.

No one more then me needs the blood of Jesus, and this constant, total forgiveness, only makes me love Him more, need Him more, and submit myself more to Him.

I never forget how much I need Him, because I keep needing Him.

I wish it wasn't so...... but I hope that helps.

and btw, I don't get "re-saved" every day... I'm always saved, I just apologize that as I keep doing things wrong, it's another whip on the back, another nail in the hand, another thorn in the head, that He had to take. I'm going to heaven..... I just wish the Man that got me there didn't have to go through what He did because of me.

Edited : to add 3 words to clarify a point

It's a camp? I love camping!

My point was we are all still sinners - I wasn't trying to argue a specific amount of sin, just a general statement. BUT even if we could go a short period of time without sinning (a day, a few days), we are still sinners and it won't last too long. 1 John 1:8-2:1 clearly indicate all true believers still sin.

I believe that's true but you have to consider the sowing and reaping and the chastizing hand of God the Father. Sowing, Reaping and chastizement are enough to deter me most of the time. I've been chastized by God and I can tell you from the experience I wouldn't want to go through it again.

Also, I want to ask you again, from what position are you asking these questions? What specifically are your beliefs? Your failure to answer me so far is causing me to think you are a troll.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,


Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,


Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

This is refering to people who do things as a life style because this is their nature. they are not saved. A Christian can commit any sin that a lost person can commit. But if you are saved you could not do it all you want for God would chasten you.

God Bless

John

If they are a Christian and know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior their sin is already under the blood but like Bro Jerry stated it will hinder a Christians fellowship with Christ until they deal with the sin. It will also affect their joy in their Christian walk. Our salvation was complete at Calvary. But we strongly cautioned in scripture about spearning the grace of God.

It depends on how you look at sins. Do you know it is wrong in God's eyes and still prideful about it? Do you boast about your sins?

Christians sin everyday, but God is molding us because we let him.

True. I don't think there is much reason to continue this thread. If you die in mortal sin, then you are not saved. It's as simple as that.

There is no such thing as a mortal sin - all sins bring death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Each sin is enough to make us guilty of Hell - which is why we need a Saviour.

Q: What if someone gets saved but then commits a sin?

A: They sure as heck better seek God?s forgiveness and a restoration of unity with our Lord. We should be reminded of Paul?s words in his letter to the churches of Galatia.

Gal 5:1 (KJV) - Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

We know that if we say we have no sin, we are lying. (1st John 1:8, 10) But if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1st John 1:9)

Many Christians get the idea that once we're saved, we'll just walk up to the pearly gates, slap Jesus five, and walk right in like we own the place. That's just simply not the case. 2nd Corinthians 5:10 says that "we" will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ to receive the things done in the body, whether good or bad. When Paul ways "we" he means.... well... "we."

The unsaved will be judged according to God's standard of righteousness, which is perfection. Therefore, they will all be cast into the lake of fire.

The saved will be judged according to their service to Christ. 1st Corinthians 3:10-15 is a good passage for that. Some people will rule in Heaven, some will have much treasure, some will have several crowns, and so on. The work we do for Christ here on earth will directly impact our eternity. If we are sinning and not focusing on our work for Him, of course we will not receive any rewards in Heaven.

Jerry,

I know in no way meant to disrespect anyone, nor was I swearing in slang. My point was Hell is real, and you better seek unity with God or you might just end up there. Unfortunately, in this PC world many are afraid of the word itself -- which is used throughout the Good Book -- and react in the manner you just did.

Take a look at this: Hell in the Bible (KJV)

That said, I will refrain from using the word again on this board.

That's true. The proper use of the word is biblical and fine, it's the improper use of the word that's not acceptable here.

Appreciate the feedback and I see where you are coming from. Let me explain. The context was that Hell (I used "heck" for fear that some would be offended by the word itself) surely exists and likewise, if we continue to be wilfully joined to the yoke of bondage of sin we risk a one way ticket there.

That is all. I will avoid the phrase going forward. Peace be upon you.
