Thank you so much! Just what I needed in regard to the question: well, if a believer is in grace, what’s the big deal about sin?

Jack Wellman October 8, 2016 at 10:54 am

Thank you Mr. Ramisch. Sin is a big deal to God, and although we still sin, we still need to strive to live holy lives, right?

Indeed the article is helpful. Turning away from sins makes us be close to God. As in the case of James 4:7, God will draw near to us if only we turn away from sins and seek him. Thanx sir. From Kenya

Romans 8:6-9 Good News Translation (GNT)
6 To be controlled by human nature results in death; to be controlled by the Spirit results in life and peace. 7 And so people become enemies of God when they are controlled by their human nature; for they do not obey God’s law, and in fact they cannot obey it. 8 Those who obey their human nature cannot please God.

9 But you do not live as your human nature tells you to; instead, you live as the Spirit tells you to—if, in fact, God’s Spirit lives in you. Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.

I recently was asked a question in a Bible Study Class and the response i gave (to me) was weak and unsteady and I have been troubled by my unsure response. Could you help me?

Question was : Can you serve The Kingdom of God if you have unconfessed sin in your life? Or unrepented sin(S)?

I know my relationship with God and The Savior is injured if I have such in my life, but does that render my service as a disciple of Christ, void or ineffective?

Hello Mr. Smith. My question would be, why not confess the sins and repent of them? We fall into sin, but we have been brought to repentance by God and that means we turn away from sin. We cannot serve God as much if we have unconfessed sin since our prayers are hindered. I would confess it…repent of it, and even if you sin again, you can still serve the Lord.

How do you repent if your heart’s not in it? Any person can change their actions but has to be a change of heart too, so how can I get my heart to change? I know you said that repentance is a gift of God and I have prayed for Him to give it to me, but I find myself just not right. I know that’s on me, but how can I genuinely repent? I came from a Catholic upbringing and it was works-based, it feels so hard to just stop trying to earn or prove myself. I know that I have OCD as well and I have been wondering and trying to figure out if I’ve been saved for going on 5 to 6 years now. I know that we are saved by Jesus and not by anything of ourselves, so how can I tell that I’ve moved past just a mental knowledge of Him and have actually put my trust in Him and have repented?

Hello Mr. Housley and thank you for your question. There is no reason that God cannot and God will not save you. Talk to your pastor about this. If you’ve trusted in Jesus Christ, you will be doing the things commanded of Him (Matt 25:35-36) for Him (Mtat 25:40). Speak with your pastor today.

Jared Housley January 17, 2021 at 9:40 pm

Hi Jared,
I understand your concerns as I had similar questions in the past. If you would like to talk about it, I can share what God showed me in his Word. Feel free to email me at [email protected]

Keep in mind that the word “repent ” means s change of mind. It does not mean a change of heart or a turning from sins. In fact, God repented almost 4 times as many times as people did in the Old Testament. If repentance meant turning from sin, God would have sinned many times, since he repented that many times. But repentance doesn’t mean that.

I gained much from your Q&A. I like that your use God’s Word for your answers rather than what you think! There’s much Wisdom in referring a person to their own respected leadership so that there’s little opportunity for confusion. You support the local church leadership that way! Bless you!

So as long as you don’t practice murder (sin) you aren’t a murderer (sinner) right? There is no such thing as a sinning Christian

Jack Wellman June 27, 2020 at 11:25 am

Hello Mr. Hill. We can avoid murdering someone but hate them which Jesus and the Bible teaches is murder of the heart (Matt 5:21; 1 John 3:15). Yes, there is such a thing as a sinning Christian. Do you not sin anymore? Have you ceased from sin for the last days, weeks, months, or years? I know you nor have I been able to abstain from sin. The Bible teaches that ” all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23), and Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 7:20 “Surely there is no righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.”

Romans 3:10-12 says: as it is written,


and that “one” or “even one” like you does not exist. There are none that do not sin. Read 1 John 1:8-10. “8If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.” so you see, we all sin and yet we are saved. If you say you have no sin, you are calling God a liar. That’s what Scripture says…not me. You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own truth. You are still a sinner, this side of the veil.

Thank you very much for your time in assembling God’s word in a way that spoke to me. This was a much needed read!

Modupeola September 3, 2020 at 10:45 pm

Thank you sir for the teachings.
My question is when we sin against a man of God that is, blasphemy against an ordained minster and we ask for forgiveness of sin will God still forgive us?

Jack Wellman September 4, 2020 at 9:18 am

Hello my friend. No, there is no way we can blaspheme against a minister or any man but only God but even this we cannot do today so please read this my friend:https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/can-christians-blaspheme-god/
