This is the most defeatist article on Christian depravity that I have ever read and it’s absolutely INACCURATE. it’s a lame excuse for the worldly and the most carnal ‘christian’ to continue in his/her original depraved nature of sin. I mean willful, presumptuous. premeditated sin. Christianity is not a bus full of of lame, defeated and struggling sinners. NO. ANY BORN AGAIN, HOLY GHOST FILLED CHILD OF GOD MUST BE SANCTIFIED. There is NO WAY that an empowered child of God who is filled with Holy Spirit and in ACTIVE relationship with the Holy Spirit and empowered with fire of the Holy Spirit will CONTINUE SINNING AND THEN MAKE LAME AND FEEBLE EXCUSES that he or she is liable to sin. IF ANY MAN IS IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATURE. THE OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY!!!! Brother Wells, once we come to Christ and accept His redemption the one who used to steal STOPS stealing. The prostitute stops prostitution and the liar stops lying. We don’t go back to the beggarly things but we aspire for the higher calling of God WHICH IS HOLINESS without which no man can see God

Hello sir. THank you for your comment, but please tell me or quote to me where I said we can live in willful, presumptuous, premeditate sin? I read my article and couldn’t find anything even close to that. Do you sin? Have you ever sinned since you were saved? Most people honestly say yes, but we’re still saved, but not from striving but by God’s grace, and yes, we should strive to live holy lives, but Jesus is the way to holiness. Please tell me why this is defeatist. Please explain yourself sir.

Dear brother Jack. May I commend you on your article?
I have been unable to post comments for quite a while.

Hello David. Hope you are well. Good to hear from you.

Thank you.
It makes me quite sad that so few people seem to visit this site nowadays. I have found the articles inspiring and challenging. Will keep you all in my prayers.
Blessings

Hi Jack
Thanks, I agree with your article as the truth according to scripture taken as a whole. The truth is in me and I strive out of a pure heart towards sanctification for what Jesus has done for us. What about willful sins in our lives not yet overcome, like getting intoxicated by drinking to much occasionally, and what if this is a battle as a result of mental illness?
Secondly, what does Paul mean in : Rom 14:11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow, And every tongue shall confess to God. 
Rom 14:12  So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God. 
If all our sins are forgiven, as true children of God with an ongoing relationship with him, and God thinks of them no more, when we truly confess and ask forgiveness, as God can see the meaning of our hearts, Why shall we have to give account of the life we have lived? Thus I presume for all good and bad done and wrongful decisions?

Regards
John

Hello Mr. Voss. In many of Jesus’ parables, like in the Parable of the Talents, each is given talents and are to multiply them, but one servant didn’t, showing he was never saved in the first place, but Jesus will say well done thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord…some are given greater rewards in the kingdom and some less, all according to what each one did in the body, says Paul. Some works done for show or self will be burned up but those done for Christ will pass thru the fire. That is the judgment of believers; not judged for their sins, which were atoned for at the cross, but for what they did for Christ here on earth as doing it unto Him (Matt 25:40). By the way, who doesn’t sin and do so willfully? If the battle is a mental illness, then they can seek help from the doctor and from biblical counseling and from fasting and praying and study of the Word…but no one this side of the veil will be sinless (Rom 3:10-12, 23; 1st John 1:8, 10), but we should be sinning less over time (as you call it, sanctification). For now, believers know “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins” (Eccl 7:20). Does this make sense Mr. Voss?

John Vos July 9, 2017 at 6:10 am

Thanks, Pastor Wellman.

Yes, it does make sense now, and I do have spiritual growth and are definitely sinning less and overcoming battles, if I look back over the last 5 years of my Life.
Buy The way, Jesus has given me outcome over my Bi-Polar since my last email and I can truly say that I am on the way to being fully healed. I feel like a new person, and that without new prescription medication. My life has completely changed in the last week, such a short time after suffering from this for about 20 years. God is great, and has created plants and herbs for use as medicine to heal and restore our body, of course the healing and grace are still his work.

Regards
John

I am a wheelchair-bound 26-year-old woman in the last year of my Master of Science in Biotechnology. I just wanted to say what an honor it is to read your thoughts every day; I frequently find myself scrolling through your archive to find inspiration. I have a rare neurological disorder called CRPS1 that causes some of the highest pain levels known to modern medicine, and every day is a struggle even without my schooling and upcoming marriage. When I am up late at night doing nothing but hurting, you often help me use that time to draw closer to Christ, and I am so grateful.

I am the only Christian in my family and I am the only faithful, practicing Christian many of my friends know, so I feel extra pressure to try to be the embodiment of Christ and set a good example. Your writings help me to accomplish that and always teach me something new about myself and my relationship to God, and I thank you so much for that blessing.

Sincerely,
Jasmine Fuller (it will be Jasmine Cannon when I get married in 2 weeks!)
