(Bible Question from Nigeria) hi, i ve read what you wrote about catholic, if you left the church its ok but the greatest thing is to live a christ like life and let it reflet in your daily life, leave the church alone, you will gain nothing, luther and king henry started this thing but today people re leaving thier church back to catholic in england and else where ...WHY ? im a witness who converted to catholic after discovering the truth, and i can give my life for catholic ,i've converted many into catholic including my parent and siblings and all over the world there people like me.
The catholic church is the covenant church,its universal, its 2000 yrs old, ...being x-catholic means nothing because judas was christ disciple, satan was Gods angels, luther was a priest, henry was the defender of catholic faith, enemies always comes from within. I promise you that its a war you cant win cos its not your war.luther did more than u but the roman church is still strong so you wont make any diffrence, ...I pray God to forgive you about what you said against the church and our blessed mother, we will continue to honour her. Instead of leaving catholic for any reason i rather die. There is love, unity and humility in the catholic that i cant see anywhere else, some of my friends wept when they attended catholic for first time,...Take care.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Please know that your attempt to refute and correct what we teach is invalidated immediately because there are no Scriptures, not even one, to back up your views! All teaching, correction, etc. is to come from the Bible or it is meaningless:
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16,17)So the Bible is FINAL AUTHORITY, not the popes or any papal encyclical or so-called "sacred tradition." It doesn't matter what your priest says, what nuns say or what the pope says or does. What matters for you is what you do with the Biblical message. You will be damned or saved based on what you do with the Scriptures. Click here to read about the Plan Of Salvation.
You say you have discovered truth, but it isn't, according to Scripture! You bow before images, pray to Mary and the saints, confess your sins to a false leader and think the Catholic sacraments are how you will be saved. That is not finding truth. That is error, idolatry and heretical false doctrine. As a former Roman Catholic, who has been reading/studying the Bible for over 40 years I assure you that is fact. Do believe in the Fifteen Promises Of The Rosary too? Do you believe Mary is Sovereign, as Pope John Paul II did? Do you think Mary is your life, sweetness and hope, as the Rosary declares? If you do, you are grossly deceived as you travel down the easy and broad path to hell. This is written out of Christian love. You need the truth, not a lie that you are okay in your current beliefs and practices. As you seek God's truth from the Bible your eyes will be opened more and more. Did you know we have a great book for Catholics entitled, Is This The Mary Of The Bible? Remember 1 Cor. 6:9-11.
(Bible Question) Hello, What do you do when you get tidal waves of doubt in your mind on every facet of God's word and Christianity? I was so strong before and out of the blue it had been hitting me. It is very hard to live without wanting to cry and shut off everything around me. Sometimes I just want to sleep. I don't understand what is going on.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus name. The doubt you refer to is a demonic attack on your SOUL. The father of lies wants you deceived and damned. You must guard your heart. So how do you do that? Flood your mind with truth. Ponder, meditate upon, speak out and practice the Biblical message. As you draw near to God, he will draw near to you.
There can be no rational reason for anyone to doubt the Bible, for it is the proven word of God. Another thing which will help you is to listen to sound Bible-based Christian music, especially the peppy kind. Focus on the big picture, including Bible heroes, eternity beyond the grave, and not just the here and now and the many problems around us. Finally, Elijah got discouraged at one point and needed physical rest and nourishment (1 Kings 19:4-8). May God bless and help you.
(Bible Comment) Grace to you brethren in Christ and peace in the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Thank you very much for your excellent website with such informative information and articles. I am a nondenominational evangelical Christian minister, pastoring a small group of English speaking Mexicans and foreigners....
The Calvinist heresy is strong in non Roman Catholic churches in Latin America. I am frequently disputing with Calvinist preachers and ministers. Your website has been very helpful to me. Brother Dan Comer's articles in particular are very helpful. I also have been engaged in a debate with Calvinists.... They are a really nasty group of people....most of whom are totally lacking in Christian love and charity. Thank you again for your excellent website. Peace and blessings be upon you in His Holy Name. Yours in Christ,
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Thank you for the kind words of encouragement. We are in a horrible day spiritually and this is all around the world. The Calvinists are a L-O-W breed. We deal with many different types of deceived people. The Calvinists are about the WORST of all. They are often arrogant and insulting, but it goes with their message, since they think they are the "elect" and people like you are me are "non elect," with no hope of ever escaping such a condition. Some do come to salvation though. We have various testimonies on our website and some are from former Calvinists.
Do you have a copy of our NO Eternal Security book, The Believer's Conditional Security? It is loaded with information refuting once saved always saved. It should help you much in this battle for SOULS. God bless you. Remember 1 Tim. 4:16.
(Bible Question) ...My question is, should you choose to walk away from Christ, does the Holy Spirit leave you. Any help or scripture would be great. This is a question that has haunted me for a while and those that advocate OSAS have used it successfully against me in debates.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. When a righteous man turns to evil he will die spiritually (lose salvation). Clearly, spiritual death is taught from Gen. through Rev. Such would cause the Holy Spirit to no longer dwell within. His body is no longer the temple of the Holy Spirit, as it was before that point:
Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple. (1 Cor 3:16,17)
Here is proof that the Holy Spirit left Saul!
Now the Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD tormented him. (1 Sam 16:14)
Remember, there are three ways to lose your salvation: (1) through certain sins, (2) preaching/believing a false gospel and (3) disowning Jesus. Please consider getting a copy of our 801 page book refuting the HERESY of once saved always saved, entitled The Believer's Conditional Security. Ponder the following questions and they will help you greatly refute the grace changers you encounter. Click Questions About The Believer's Security. God bless you. 1 Tim. 4:16.
(Bible Question) i have come from 15 years of satesism, homosexuality, and darkness...I have developed ungodly habits such as porn and ____________..i was never raised in the church etc and recently over the past year have broken down and repented..i have quit drugs i read the word daily got rid of all my old friends and i feed the poor in my community and i stay away from heavy metal etc i am doing so well in many ways...but i still fall with ____________ and pornography. ...granted i used to do it daily with no form of a repentent heart and now i go sometimes months or weeks without doing it and i fight ut i keep falling..have i lost my salvation? i just seem to do well a while and then sin again....can i be saved...i feel so much in my [life i]s changed i think different etc and my heart is repentent but i must not be cause i keep falling in this...i dont feel i have much time and although i am doing well in o reguards this sin..messiah said sin no more and i just feel so helpless..like trying to learn how to not sin when all my life was was sin
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. GOOD NEWS. There is victory and sure deliverance for you. MANY have been in the vilest sins for many years and found complete freedom from sin's addictions. It is important to know sin is the problem. Therefore, it is a spiritual issue and must be dealt with spiritually.
Because we are in such a dark widespread apostate day, finding truth is not easy for anyone! The Bible teaches one becomes a new creation instantly. It happens at the point of salvation. We can testify that when we got saved we were instantly set free from strong controlling sin addictions and know others who were too! What seems to be happening is, the devil is playing with your mind. You must remain guarded against his subtle tricks. You do NOT have to yield to the devil's sensations and temptations. You do not have to sin in those ways. He is trying to destroy you. He wants you to think it's okay to "do it one last time" or it is not harmful to salvation, etc. (Various heretics of our day would agree with the devil!) Hence, resist the devil and he will flee! Purpose in your heart that you will N-E-V-E-R do that again, even if it means you will die first! Victory will come.
Years ago, when going door-to-door with the gospel we encountered a former alcoholic. Unsure where he was spiritually, I asked him how he got saved. He told us how he got saved and delivered from being the first customer daily at the bar, next door to him. As he pointed to his worn out, dirty carpet he said, I got down on my hands and knees and begged God. Your spiritual deliverance must come from God. Since he looks at the heart, you must be 100% sincere. There are several teachings you need to read, Above Sin, Freed From Sin Addictions and Fight To The Death. Flood your mind with God's word. Listen only to sound Christian music. Stop watching TV, since it is a lust generator. Write us back in a few weeks and give us an update. Remember Mt. 5:28,29. God bless you.
(Bible Question) well i have been reading your web site for quite some time.i have always believed in jesus my entire life but not until 1998 did i truely live my life in obedience to every word of the lord....i was very passionate and bold in my passion and he last 5 years have been the toughest..my wife of 26 years divorced me and married another in just 2 months after she was free as she called it. my life has taken a turn for the worst...i have fallen from grace and know it...it began when i went to her church [baptist] and they boldly told me she isnt my wife that she was free to marry anyone she chose even though i had not committed adultery she did..she was and is forgiven and since she was saved as a child her salvation is secure...well this has turned my heart to say well instead of walking in sexually purity as i had done for 5 years i have fallen...i have turned to smoking pot and have done ____ etc..to ease my pain i guess...my mind has said your saved and do whatever you want! im forgiven as she is!.......tonight i realize after reading your site once again.......a believer can fall from grace as my life certainly isnt that of a christian in any thing i do......but i cant seem to even feel i can turn back to the plow! i just want you to know your site has to be right...after that baptist pastor and deacons told me all they did almost immediately i have been falling in a free fall....with no ability to stop...i feel so far from the lord and i cant read or pray.....i may be lost but i felt compelled to write to say to anyone doubting your words of salavation and fear of the lord and the warnings in the bible..just maybe someone who reads this might not do as i did and give up on life and walking witht he lord as i was........once saved always saved cant be correct.......i was saved and i have fallen and i cant get up! im caught so deep in hurt and sin it has consumed me to a point i just done care about anything.nothing....sexual lust and sin has totally consumed me and satan is making sure of that...so if anyone reads this and repents and doesnt allow satan to drag them in to his net as i am in i may help someone.....i hope i continue reading your site as it may be the only truth on the internet and certainly in the churches i have attended[methodist and non denominational ]but grew up _______.......the churches today dont speak the truth and they have made me believe that i can live in sin and still have eternal life...i know they are lieing but have allowed satan to control my every move........im lost so let me tell you and anyone who reads this......living in sin and thinking one is saved is a lie ...lost in ________.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. We are VERY SORRY for the misery you have suffered and are still in. Be assured, you are NOT alone with trouble. All of us have serious troubles/problems at different times in our lives. Many are much worse than yours!
Why turn from God? He didn't do you harm! The devil tempted you to turn from your life supply (the Lord Jesus) to return to spiritual death and get back on the road to hell. Does that seem rational? Satan is a crafty deceiver and your WORST ENEMY. He wants you in hell. He will remind you of the wrong things and tempt you to damn you, if possible. You MUST guard the thoughts you ponder. When you were saved you had peace within, freedom from the misery of sin's addictions and a real purpose to live. Now your life has been reduced to a waste, just like what sin did to the Prodigal. He too turned from his salvation to gross wickedness. The exciting news is, God wants you back! Again, God wants you back as a backslider. He can remove your misery, sufferings and addictions, if you do it his way. So what is his way? It's simple. As the Prodigal turned away from wickedness to serve God, you can too. Don't let the devil do this to you!
We have many teachings which can help you learn God's word. Please glue yourself to our materials. They have a proven track record of helping MANY people. It's the truth and the real truth is what people need most. Be assured, if you ever studied the doctrine of hell, I know you would not want to go there forever. Hell is the greatest danger and your SOUL is your most precious possession. Please do the right thing for yourself and others. If you continue to serve the devil, you will take people to hell with you.
Please consider signing up for our internet church, email, text, audio and video teachings, updates, etc. If interested, you can do that here: I want to join the internet church. Remember the Prodigal (Luke 15:11-32).
(Bible Question) I have just read the above page on what the devil won't tell a Christian single when tempting from your web site. This man's story is also my story. I too cannot regain God's favor anymore, after having been lukewarm towards God for years, although I never committed adultery. Ten years ago, some problem happened in my life and I really got down on my knees and sincerely prayed to God. But God did not answer. Instead, I felt the presence of millions of demons all around me saying, "No ! This time it's too late. You now belong to us forever !!!" This triggered a terrible depression overnight. The depression is less severe now, but I have never heard from God through the years ever since. Do you think that this man - and myself - are lost forever ??
(Bible Answer) GOOD NEWS! YOU can return to God. Yes, he wants you back. You did NOT sin too much. The Prodigal son was away from the Father for an undesignated amount of time -- maybe as long as you -- maybe longer! But regardless, God wants you back. To reject that is to deny God's word. On the other hand, the devil will lie to you to try and convince you that you have sinned too much, been away too long, etc. He is a liar and your chief enemy. He wants you damned to hell. Resist his lies! FIGHT!
Repent and don't go by your feelings. Draw near to God and he'll draw near to you. If you think your sins were too mountainous after being saved to return to salvation, please ponder this:
My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:19,20, ESV)
Memorize it and KNOW you can still come back and still make your life count for God. Stop allowing the devil to hurt and confuse you! Go by the Bible. God bless you.
(Bible Question) Hello, I want to comment on the article found on Papal Infallibility. I am glad you all have address Papal Infallibility in the roman catholic church, but as a roman catholic myself ....The "Roman" catholic church does not teach that there is no salvation outside of the church. Whether this has always been the 'understanding' of the church I do not know, but it has always been the teaching of the church(there have been many heretics, many more who did not or do not understand the faith including past popes, and every single catholic save for Jesus and yes Mary has been a sinner thus the church has never claimed to be perfect, but it has always claimed to be the church Christ founded) whether or not all understood this or not.
Rather than go into a deep theological discussion there is a much easier way of showing that the roman catholic church teaches that all baptized christians, whether they belong to the roman catholic church or not, receive salvation....The church does not teach you need confirmation or communion to be saved, but that they are gifts to help you live the life of Christ. Also when the church says there is no salvation outside of the church it is not talking about the Roman Catholic church, but the catholic(which comes from a latin word meaning universal) church which could also be called "Christianity".
Finally, on the topic of salvation of muslims the quote in your article is very much taken out of cont0ext. It is not at all trying to say there is salvation outside of the christian faith, but that muslims believe in the "God of Abraham", we as christians also happen to believe in the "God of Abraham". To have salvation though you must accept christs sacrifice for your sins and the public proclamation of this is the baptism by water and thus muslims do not fit into this category....God bless!
(Bible Answer) As a former Roman Catholic several of your misunderstandings must be addressed: (1) Roman Catholicism is not The Church. It might refer to itself as such but it is only a religious system which has evolved over the centuries, picking up more and more pagan ideas and heresies along the way. (Mormonism also refers to itself as The Church.) The real Church, according to the Bible, consists of real Christians from around the world and has nothing to do with any denomination, especially one which spreads a false plan of salvation (sacraments, church membership and Mary, etc.), such as Roman Catholicism does. NOTE: Popes have taught one must be in subjection to the Roman Pontiff to have salvation, as the article you referred to shows. Note their unam sanctam decree. Hence, they taught one must be a Roman Catholic to have salvation! (2) The RC quote on the Muslims is:
The Church's relationship with the Muslims. 'The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day' (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1994, p.223).
If the plan of salvation includes those who acknowledge the Creator, then WHY are the Jews excluded (Pope Eugene IV, The Bull Cantate Domino, 1441) but NOW not the Muslims? For you to state, or even suggest, that any of the Roman Catholic popes, past or present, don't understand Catholicism is ludicrous! You are trying to defend a religious system which is glaringly counterfeit to the core, if one looks at the evidence. Our teaching on Papal Infallibility shows problems, but there are many others, which should help you, if you love truth.
(3) You must be totally unacquainted with the Council of Trent. There were at least 100 anathemas cited there against various people who acknowledge the Creator, but CORRECTLY opposed a doctrine or doctrines taught in Catholicism! How can that be? Know, Vatican Council II reaffirmed the Council Of Trent. END OF DISCUSSION. What you are now hearing/believing is not the consistent teaching of Roman Catholicism. They have more than 1 message depending on their audience (which is just like the Eternal Security Teachers). You have a distorted image of Catholicism as you cleave to its poisoned and false epitome of the gospel (the Rosary) and their counterfeit, mythical, non-existent Mary, who they think is the sinless, Queen of Heaven, refuge of sinner and "our life, sweetness and hope." Such reliance on Mary will damn you to hell. NOTE: don't write back and try to say Catholics don't trust in Mary for their salvation. Various Popes have made it clear that Salvation is in Mary. Did you know Pope John Paul II actually taught Mary was Sovereign! This is clear and definite heresy. The leaders of Catholicism are and were heretics -- blind leaders of the blind. Please wake up before it is too late.
Do yourself a favor, trash all that you think you know and read the New Testament with an open mind. Change accordingly. Remember: If you ever get to heaven it will be because you put into practice the message of the Bible. If you go to hell, it will be because you didn't. The Bible ALONE is Final Authority. What Catholicism calls Sacred Tradition is filled with contradictions and errors and, therefore, can't be compared with Holy Writ. Click here to learn the Biblical Plan Of Salvation. God bless you. Remember 1 Cor. 6:9-11.
(Bible Question) If you had asked me six months ago about Christianity I would have laughed in your face. I too grew up in an Once Saved Always Saved home and the results of that on my life and family members have been devastating to say the least.
I will make this brief as I'm sure you get much email. When I was a teeneager I became very interested in the occult. Even though I grew up in a "Christian" home, these other teachings caught my eye. There had to be something else out there. My parents and family can't be what Christianity is all about. They're horrible people. They had a form of godliness, and I did not want to be like them. A few years went by and I studied new age philosophy and meditation and healing methods. I believe it must have been God who convicted me of what I was doing was wrong. I came under conviction and left these things and that's when all hell broke loose. I was tormented mercilessly. I heard voices, most of which were blasphamies against the Lord that were so terrible. I had awful hallucinations. I went temporarily blind and deaf. I thought I was either maybe posessed or had some kind of nervous breakdown. Everyone prayed for me but it only got worse and I attempted suicide. Really all I knew then was the sinners prayer. I found a little church and it seemed good at the beginning but they didn't believe in such things and as ever I felt all alone and quietly suffered through this. It seemed that over time the mental torture got less and less and I assumed that I was ok so I went on with my life.
The little church unmentioned earlier turned out to be staunch KJV only. The pastor a student of __________ and more like an army general. Months went by and I grew unhappy with such mean spirited teaching and treatment of the congregation, that I decided to leave. When I did I received such a nasty letter from the pastor I couldn't believe my eyes. Again I had just about enough of Christians. My life after that for about 13 years seems now such a fog. Again I wound up in the occult and in a cult to make things worse. I also started to lead a homosexual lifestyle. I thought I found happiness but was miserable, and stayed in abusive relationship one after another. At least though I was not one of "those" christians. And a few times over those years people asked me if I was a Christian and I said no.
I don't know if ever in my life I had been saved? I said I loved the Lord when I was young. Asked Jesus into my heart when I was 8. I was molested by a babysitter when I was young. And from my earliest memory I have been obsessed with sex. From toddler age. I grew up with an extremely abusive single father, both emotionally and physically.
Which brings me to about six months ago. I don't know what did it exactly. Because I had become such a blaspheming, sexually immoral, occultist that I still wonder what brought me back to the Lord. I knew in my heart I was on my way to hell. And I said God please save me.
And again all hell broke loose. The mental torment and voices. Horrible nightmares like I've never known. The worst was guilt, and something inside me telling me that I could never go back to Him. I'd fallen away. I was beyond terror. Twice in my life now I have faced this, the second time worse than the first. Back then no one helped me and this time no one helped me. No one understood when I tried to tell them and seek help. I tried contacting many people on the Internet and "deliverence ministries." Nobody would help. I remember I asked one lady to pray for me and it was like the biggest inconvenience to her. I need help! Please!
I found your sight about 4 months ago and it has brought me great joy and also much fear. Many things changed in my life. I left the cult and never looked back. I left friends that weren't good for me, and some of them left me when i told hem I was wrong and going back to the Lord.
My two biggest issues are guilt for walking away from the Lord and lust. How do I not be gay. For months I was in prayer everyday on my face. I left my old job and even took a new one out of state. I'm in a constant battle it seems still. Will you please pray for me!? Really I'm at a loss. Sometimes I'm filled with such love and joy for the Lord, and today sinned against him and wept bitterly. I would love to hear any advice you have for me. Also I have read much on the Internet about gay people trying to leave that lifestyle and come tinge Lord and can't seem to do it. I don't understand why it seems so hard to leave it. But then again it's all I know. Thank you for your ministry. It has helped me tremendously. I heard a pastor once say that he would spend the rest of his life trying to get under the obedience of the Lord then not try at all. I feel the same way. I desperately want to be free. God Bless You,
(Bible Answer) GREAT NEWS! What you are about to read works. It has a proven track record in changing evil, wicked, no good worthless sin-addicted people into a new creation and temple of the Holy Spirit. WITHOUT QUESTION, it WILL DEFINITELY do the same for you. Carefully focus in upon eternal truth:
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor. 6:9-11, NASB)
The real gospel has real power. It changes people. It said "such WERE [past tense] some of you." It is NOT a special set of words that one must pray. It is a HEART issue. From your HEART, that is, ALL 100% OF YOU, in COMPLETE SINCERITY, get on your knees (if you are physically able) and cry out to God for him to have mercy on you and set you free from your addictions and torment. Because you were in the occult, you opened a spiritual door to demonic influences in your life in an extraordinary way. Now you are going to SLAM the door in the devil's face and pad lock it shut!
I recommended the following type prayer to a man who was involved in similar things as you, and he said it was the most powerful prayer he ever prayed. On your knees, after you cry out for mercy and deliverance, still with a repentant heart, tell the Lord Jesus you want him to be your King, Lord and Master. Tell him you will live for him and that everything you have belongs to him. Tell him you are so sorry for your sins and will never do those things again and that you will serve him now in this life and throughout all eternity. THEN, in these approximate words, say: "Satan in the name of Jesus, GET OUT OF MY LIFE. I turn my back on you. GET OUT IN JESUS' NAME. (Shout it out again.) GET OUT IN JESUS' NAME. I'm living for Jesus now. I belong to him. In Jesus' name I renounce my past involvement with divination, ouija boards, crystals, fortune tellers (name other things you did)." Then say it again, "In Jesus' name I close the door on all that. I'm now living for Jesus, not the devil, not self, but God! GET BEHIND ME satan in Jesus' name. Be gone." Then tell the Lord, "I love you Lord Jesus. You are my Lord. I love you Lord. Help me. Lead me from temptation. Help me to understand the Bible. Strengthen me and help me grow and be an honor to you. Amen."
Get up and smash, burn, rip apart everything which has been a porn temptation. Treat it as it deserves to be treated -- DESTROY IT, AS IT'S THE DEVIL'S TOOLS USED TO DAMN SOULS. Get it out of your house as well as all occult materials you used when serving the devil. If possible, burn it all in your yard. (To get rid of it will help eliminate temptation.) Next, flood your mind with wholesome thoughts by flooding it with God's word. Read the New Testament at least 10 times before going to the Old Testament. Stay with it daily. You should read at least 5 chapters daily. Pray often. Praise God often. Tell him you love him and that you are so sorry for hurting him in the past with your sins. Ponder truths in the Bible as you do things around the house, yard, driving, etc. THIS IS THE REAL THING. God is alive. He hasn't lost his power and he hasn't changed. Jesus' blood still sets a person free from sins. It works. It has worked for others and it will work for you. You'll see! It says, "... such WERE some of you ..." GOD BLESS YOU. (Write us back in about 1 week.)
(Bible Question) Hello, My name is....I still struggle(doubting) if I am forgiven for my horrible and lengthy years of willful sin. I was reading on pg. 17 of your book 'A Study on Biblical Salvation' and it talks about making restitution. how can an adulterer make restitution? Please help me. I feel so defeated and lost even though I have repented from my wiful sin. I no longer want to be an enemy of God
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. It is a thief who is to make restitution by returning what he stole and perhaps more, as the Scripture cited shows. WHY are you doubting if God has forgiven you, if you repented? Did God forgive the Prodigal son (Luke 15:11-31)? He didn't have to make restitution. He wasn't a thief. Have you been changed into a new creation? If so, you have been forgiven! Don't doubt what the Bible says about those who repent. Are you basing your doubts upon your feelings? Your feelings are NOT final authority. The Bible is FINAL authority. NOTE: If you were in a bus traveling north, but felt you were traveling south, your feelings wouldn't indicate reality! Go by the facts -- the Bible. Go by the Bible! Stick to the Bible like glue. You are what the Bible says you are. You have what the Bible says you have. Have you read this for new Christians? Please consider signing up for our internet church, email, text, audio and video teachings, updates, etc. If interested, you can do that here. I want to join the internet church. God bless you.
