God,, Sinning and forgivness?

God,, Sinning and forgivness? Topic: How to write an apologize note
June 24, 2019 / By Andy
Question: I read this on a site "Should you stumble or fall, do not stay down. Just ask the Lord to forgive you and start again in your walk with Him. Ask Him to empower you to overcome. You cannot do it in your strength. Just remember that in Him you can do all things". Why do Bible sites write stuff like this... this is practically telling someone they can sin and no matter what they do ask GOD for forgivnes and they will be forgiven ... this is not good people of god should not want to sin.. should not sin over and over and over ....this is saying you can... how do everyone else feel about this???

In Judaism, there is a different approach to looking at the concept of forgiveness. The Torah teaches us that God is just and merciful and forgiving. Forgiveness is reserved for those who are sincerely repentant. The easiest way that I can illustrate this concept to a Christian is to think about what many Jews call the most Jewish part of the New Testament, the “Lord’s Prayer”. In it, the prayer calls to “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”. This is a very Jewish concept. Before we ask God to forgive us, we are obligated to seek it from any we have offended after we have done our best to make good any wrong we committed. If we are sincere, they are obligated to do their very best to grant this. Should one come to you in sincere apology and do their best to make amends, you are obligated to forgive them. If you seek pardon and the person you offended refuses it, you have done your part. If you do not believe that a person was sincere in their apology, likewise, you are not obligated to grand them pardon if you have a genuine reason to believe it was not sincere. One shouldn’t take any of these behaviors lightly. This was the first two steps of the Jewish way of seeking atonement to God in the days of the Bible and it remains so today. Before we ask or expect God to forgive us, we do our part. Judaism does not obligate us to turn the other cheek against those who wish to harm us or kill us. In fact, as Jews and as Americans, it is an obligation for us to protect and defend our families, our nation and ourselves. In the context of the Torah and concept of Teshuvah.( RETURN , meaning a return to a path of righteousness through repentance) ...when Jesus declares that we cannot expect God to forgive us if we do not forgive those who do wrong to us, I believe that this is speaking against witholding forgiveness from one who has been repentant..if one comes to me with sincere effort to repent and make amends, I must make the sincere effort to forgive if I expect God to do as promised and forgive me. THAT's the concept..not to forgive people as they're trying to kill you or who would just as soon do the same thing over and over to you. Self preservation is not a sin. When Elie Wiesel, Holocaust concentration camp survivor, noted author and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was once asked, "Do you forgive the Holocaust?”, he answered, “ Who am I to forgive?” There is commadment in the book of Leviticus that requires Jews not to hold a grudge. That is an obligation for us not to harbor hatreds. Holding hatreds and grudges is self-destructive and allows the person who hurt you to continue to exert power over you, and perhaps inspire you to act out in rash emotionalism or do things you would later regret. One is not obligated to forgive an unrepentant person in order to satisfy the obligation to not bear a grudge. I repeat...Forgiveness is reserved for those who are sincerely repentant. What I believe I am obligated to do by the dictates of my faith and I shall try to do to the best of my ability is to focus on my own shortcomings, to make amends wherever possible and to seek forgiveness for myself and then ask it from God. I am obligated to forgive those who come to me who are sincere in seeking pardon and who make amends for any offence done to me. I work on getting my own affairs in order and focus on the people whose lives directly touch my own. I do my best, and leave the rest to God. I trust God will hold true to forgiveness as promised. I sincerely hope this answer may help you and for your healing of spirit. Shalom

Tell me about it...I didn't hear Jesus prophesying about any gold tablets...and he was god of earth. How do you explain this? Under whose authority is the LDS church the "bona-fide" Christian church? All you mormon retards have is Joseph Smith - a proven false prophet and golden tablets that no one ever saw. I'M SO NAIVE. I can seriously go on all day about this. I'm going to follow someone because I'm that insecure about myself. Mormonism was about fitting in. Joseph Smith couldn't find a Church that would accept his BS. That's why he made up his own. Give me 10 years and I'll write the best fiction novel you'll ever hear. Was it Jesus or angels? And the farmers said - "Oh, by the way Joseph, we actually planted this little artifact here in the ground for you to find." Mormons: "It's okay Joseph, we'll let that little mistake slide...and the book of Abraham, and DNA, and the cover ups, and the money handlings...keep letting them slide you naive little people. It's as if being with god in heaven is not good enough...no...we'll make you gods. And have your wives be slaves to you for the rest of your life. Men, you can share your love, women, you can't...that seriously sounds like one of Jesus' teachings...preach on! The SHEEP will listen attentively! Here's a mormon missionary - it's a memorized sales pitch...down word for word...yeah...that's god talking, a memorization. I wonder how the council thought of that..."what's the best choice of words to get people to believe this crap? One...we need to make it sound like we're Christians. Two...we're so greedy that we're going to force mormons to go on missions and then make them pay for it out of their pocket." What's going on with the 10% tithing then? Billion dollar malls people. Big business at its best. Preach on! Pray, and God will reveal the truth to you! Oh really? God revealed the truth to that suicide bomber when he prayed to him before blowing himself and 50 people along with him to dust. I'm sure he got a great "feeling" in his heart before accepting that fate ticket. Here's mormonism to play off your emotions people...the holy ghost gives you that feeling of truth? How many are employed to give thumbs down to people speaking against your religion...you're doing a great job preaching...because all you really have to preach is copy and paste notes from frauds. Continue preaching!

Go to the Father via Jesus. Recognize that Jesus took your sin for you at the move. You shall be forgiven, however God does no longer cast off the outcome of your sin-you'll consider dangerous. Sin nonetheless has penalties even if we're forgiven. But it is well information you're forgiven! God bless..

that isn't to demenish sin, but to magnify this grace of God. He is faithful to forgive. but He is only faithful if you are faithful in depending upon Him. therefor lasciviousness is a slap in God's face. as long as you aren't settled in your sin, as long as you are not happy with sin, then you are going to make it home. you're a pilgrim sojourning this saud, this world is not your home. the Spirit of God if He be in you, will not allow you to thrive in a sinful life style.

Go back and read the 1st 2 words: "Should you..." They are not promoting sin, they are helping the sinner. At least what you are quoting.
