But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin. — 1 John 1:7

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. — 1 John 1:8

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. — 1 John 1:9

If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. — 1 John 1:10

    1. My thoughts are that when I got saved, when I accepted Jesus as my Saviour, my sins are forgiven, never to be remembered. God sacrificed His Son, and Jesus gave His life for me to have that gift. It is no small thing. It is the biggest thing. No one has ever loved me THAT much.

      NOW, did “I”still remember them? Yes.

      Does God, no.

      Do I need ongoing forgivingness of my sins, No. God is not man therefore when He “remembers no more” its done.

      Now, what about the sins I commit after? Well, God said I am forgiven, that I will fall short, that there is no one good, no not one but God in Heaven but that doesn’t give me a free pass to sin.

      When I sin, I apologize to the LORD for doing it. Why, if I am forgiven? Well, because I fear, and respect the LORD Almighty God to say I am sorry when I do things that I know are not pleasing to Him, and ask Him to help me not do them again. I know He is using my weaknesses to make me a better Child of His. I know He could have made me perfect if He wanted me not to sin. That still doesn’t mean that I can just do whatever I want.

      There was a lot in your post. I know I didn’t cover half of it. And I don’t know if I even answered your question at this point LOL

      1. I think that your answer is a good one miss Margaret.

        It is amusing to me though that when I present a scriptural doctrine like that, people sometimes associate that with a “license to sin.”



        It’s legalism that escalates sin, and grace living is the sin defeater.

        God bless you my friend.

      2. no I didn’t think you meant it as a license to sin in any way, shape, or form. You were very clear in your post. I was saying it for the benefit of people who had not read your post but would read my comment. Because I too understand when saying we are forgiven it can be taken as a license to sin as you said lol. I felt a need to mention it for those who might be newly saved, or feel thats what I believe(license to sin) or that I think I have to keep begging the LORD to forgive me for sins :)

      3. I know that you wrote that for the passerby, not in reference to yourself.

        And that was the basis of my little commentary, knowing that you wrote that for the passerby.

        Have y’all been having fun living in Texas?

      4. I write it for every body. hehe I could write 10 paragraphs when talking about the LORD :) its hard to sum up my thoughts about a Bible verse(s) in a few paragraphs.

        We have been staying in mostly. We’ve only been out to get supplies. We have fun though. We like each other. That is a blessing. Another blessing, the stores have had what we need when we needed it. So, yes, its been fun. :)
