NO

 

You would not like to live without committing sin if you could?

 

 

It may be that you clicked on this page out of curiosity rather than a real answer to the question. I find it hard to believe that anyone would NOT want to live without committing sin if it was truly possible to do so. Yet, it may be that your answer is really the way you feel and you would not want to live without committing sin.

If you are a sinner (I know it is not politically correct to say that) and you enjoy committing sin, you might expect this page to lash out at you with a hell-and-brimstone condemnation. But that is not what the gospel is about. Neither am I going to make a heart-wringing come to Jesus plea either. I just want to say thank you for your honesty; I wish there were more people in the world like you. I do ask that you reconsider your thinking about the issue of sin in the light of the gospel. Jesus Christ did make it possible for you to be saved from sin and it is a fact that you WILL have to explain why you rejected His offer of salvation when you meet Him.

 

 

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men. (1 Corinthians 5:10-11)

 

 

If you say you are a Christian and you really mean that you would not want to live without committing sin, I just don't understand why you would WANT to continue in the very thing that Christ died to save you from. I don't mean to sound judgmental, but I am afraid you don't understand what Christianity is about and you really are not a Christian in any sense of what that word means. Is it reasonable for you to love sin more than the Christ who came to save you from your sins?

 

 

[Christ] who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood. (Revelation 1:5)

 

 

Sincerely,

    Pastor D. F. Bayless

 

 

 

 

Please tell me why you would not want to live without committing sin if you could. The great majority that respond to this site consistently tell me they would like to live without committing sin if they could.
