There is a verse or two in the bible that say something along the line of Not even God judges man but rather the son or something.
Judge not, condemn not and you will in turn not be judged or condemned. Simple rule God is love so be nice and treat others as you wish to be treated. Don't think he cares so much anymore if you smoke,lust, down it out for a while as long as it doesn't corrupt you in your actions in which case

Jesus bought you an infinite reset button. Just realize your twatness and live right and all is well. Old testament God had high hopes for us, we mucked it up and he got so pissy in wrath the only lesson he could offer was obliteration.

He tried something new with Jesus in which he pretty much gave us a second chance. Jesus would be the judge and the old laws died out with his sacrifice (sabbath, hate this, cuts your lustful eyes out, eat ye not a hairless goat kinda ot crap that pissed iron god set).

Basically God's not talking to us anymore as we just piss him off to the point he delights in the wrath of justice so Jesus is the go to guy as he's just a bit more understanding of our err

You can google it. Several bible verses about the old laws dying out with him, god no longer judging man,etc

Way I see it God's all tough love, doesn't work so well on us so the job was mitigated to Jesus. I hear God hates this or that and I think well God only hates that mindset your in. The whole fucking point of it is to make us decent to another. Lust,greed,etc aren't sins themselves but are a slippery slope into being a twat. God wants you to not be twats to anyone or anything. Simple nuff. Its a soul,not a taxcode. In your heart you know good and well right from wrong. If you pick wrong -make a point 2 pick better next time.

We know that there is no such thing as once saved always saved by this alone 1 Tim 4:1 But the spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons. Fall away from the faith! Once saved always saved teaching.......shattered! Peace be with all of you:)

Yes it says we will fall away....this is correct. No you will not lose your salvation ...friend if you are saved you will still mess up. But if you are truly saved you will HATE sin and the way it makes you feel after you have done it....when we fall, we confess to God, we repent Turn away from the sin. And we need Gods strength to help with that. And ask for forgiveness. Move on , but do not continue in the sin because all sin has consequences. It's not to be played lightly with...we have a loving and merciful God but he does spank his children and if he needs to bring you to your will be done. Peace to you friend

Biblicaly, I would refer you to the ten commandments, any of thease laws of God, if broken, would be a sin.
Personally, I would say anything one does, and knows its wrong, is a sin against their on belief of right and wrong.
Generally, I would say doing anything that broke the law of country, state, city where they live, which is a sin to the law makers, and defenders.
The first one written can get a person cast into hell.
The second will make you feel guilty, and apologetic.
The third can get a person behind bars, or a fine.

John 3 :16. For God so loved the world(that's us) That he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. This does not say."whoever believeth and never messes up". God knows we are going to mess up even before we do. We go on. Confess it. Learn from it. Get stronger from it. Get closer to God. Never lose our salvation. If we lose it. We never truly accepted his gift. Hope you understand.

Belief is a function of the will. No one can force a person to believe. He or she must choose to believe (John 3:16). And the same will that can choose to believe can also choose to stop believing. Several texts illustrate this. Hebrews 3:12–14 cautions against turning away from God and urges the need to hold firmly to the confidence we had at first until the end. In Matthew 24:13, Jesus says that “he who stands firm to the end will be saved.” That suggests that those who don’t stand firm to the end won’t be saved. Verse 10 makes it clear that Jesus is talking about Christians when He says that those who stand firm to the end will be saved.

One of the clearest passages on this subject is 1 Corinthians 15:1, 2. Notice how verse 2 says that if we don’t hold firmly to the gospel, we’ve believed in vain. Clearly, such a person was saved at one time. This passage tells us as much. But equally clearly, it’s possible for that belief to become in vain, or worthless. In other words, Paul is talking about those who lose their salvation.

There are several other texts that confirm what 1 Corinthians 15:1, 2 tells us. Second Peter 2:20–22 tells us that those who turn away from knowing Jesus and become entangled in the world’s corruption are worse off than they were at the beginning. According to Revelation 3:5, those who won’t have their names blotted out of the book of life are those who overcome. And in 1 Corinthians 9:27, Paul says he takes care so that he doesn’t become disqualified for eternal life.

Because of what we’ve just discovered, some people wonder,“If it’s possible to lose my salvation, can I really be sure that I’m saved?” The Bible is clear that we can have confidence in our salvation. Acts 16:31 is a promise that if we believe in Jesus, we’ll be saved. And God’s promises are trustworthy. In John 10:28, Jesus promises,“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” In other words, when we trust Jesus, we need not fear. No adversary can take the gift of salvation from us.(Some people argue that this verse means that it’s impossible for someone to lose their salvation. But it doesn’t say,“No one can leave my hand.” We need to avoid reading more into a text than is there, and consider each text in the context of all the other Bible verses on the subject. I hope you understand.

It is true we have been forgiven, but that does not mean we should live in sin.We must live the holy life God had already purchase for us through the cross.Everything has already been done, meaning sins have already been forgiven.But to experience forgiveness which is what matters to God, you must connect to the finished work on the cross daily.confessing your sins daily and receiving forgiveness is tapping into the already ordained forgiveness.If not you disconnect yourself and you will remain in guilt and condemnation.As well as all other things God has already given us we must connect ourselves daily to get it.eph 1;19, eph 1;3-5

we are not kept in Jesus by our works we are kept in Jesus by Jesus Romans 8:35-39 "who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Vs 37 "no in all these things we are more than victorious through HIM who loved us. For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostil powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord"

The reason you are having trouble, my friend, is that it is not true! You will never find anything in the Scriptures that you are forgiven of past and future sins. This was a false doctrine created by the Protestants to propagate "once saved, always saved". To be forgiven for a sin not yet committed is nothing short of Catholic "indulgence". There is hardly a difference between Catholics and Protestants in this area. Romans 3:25, "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;" It is clear to the Apostle Paul that we are forgiven of PAST sins. He neglected to mention FUTURE sins, but, then, Paul had never heard "once saved, always saved." [email protected]
Christ died and was resurrected over 2000 years ago. All sins were future. Also, when a person is unsaved there only sin is the rejection of Jesus Christ. When they accept Him as their Savior that sin is forgiven and they have been made righteous.

God said our righteousness is as filthy rags.

We are saved by the grace of God, through his son Jesus Christ. By grace we are saved.
I would argue we are not made righteous.
