i know how the Christians of today think because i use to be Typical Christian also. i was Saved and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord, and i thought i was Truly Saved. i asked for forgiveness of my sins every night, i went to church and people recognized me as a good Christian. And as a good Christian i started reading the Bible. the more i read, the more i realized i was not a True Christian, For the typical Christians thinks it's easy to get to Heaven, and easy to be Saved and because your Saved you are under Grace which means you are no longer liable for your sins, just ask for forgiveness 365 days a year and it's done. But the Bible says it's narrow and difficult, it says you will suffer hardships, trials, and tribulations and it tells you all the things you have to get rid of, like greed, lust, anger, and on and on. It says you will be hated. But worldly Christians are not hated, they get angry, they lust, they are greedy, they do not talk of how difficult it is to get to Heaven they say how simple it is. They believe because they say with their mouths that they are Saved, that sin no longer has dominion over them. For they are no longer under the law, but under Grace. There are thousands of verses in the Bible, that tell us how to be Saved, yet typical Christians will only take a few of the verses, and that is what they believe, Most typical Christians will say that most of the Bible does not apply to them because they claim to be Saved and not under the law, If this is true, then why is there a Bible? But little do they know, For it is written if a person sins than that person needs the law (Bible) and is under the law.

  • ROMANS 6:14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15: What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. God forbid, means NO, we are not to sin because we are under Grace.
  • ROMANS 6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

  A lot of people are blind and ignorant when it comes to being under Grace and/or under the law. If you love to sin, than you need the Bible (law), for you do not know Jesus Christ (I John 3:6). But if you do not knowingly and willingly sin, than you are righteous not needing the Bible (law), thus being under Grace.

  For example: if a person reads and learns everything about making clocks, At first when he is learning, he needs the books to help him build the clocks, He is under the law. But after making clocks for a long time, he no longer needs a book to tell him how to make them because it is written in his heart, thus being under Grace, no longer needing the books. But if he were to do something wrong while making the clocks, He is in need of the books again, thus no longer being under Grace but under the law. Likewise a person who sins needs the Bible, if a person does not sin, that person does not need the Bible, thus being under Grace and Righteousness, but if that person does sin, he is no longer under Grace and is in need of the law.

  Another example: A couple adopt two teenagers, One female, and the other male, and for the first month they give no rules at all, The female teenager does not do anything wrong, the The male teenager does many things wrong. So the parents of the two teenagers set rules down for both of them, The first rule on the list, is to be in the house every night by midnight. The female has no problem with this rule for she is in the house every night by 11:00 pm, But the male had problems with this rule, The second rule was to have manners at the dinner table, The female had no problem with this rule, but the male did have problems with this rule. Notice: The rules apply to both of them, yet the rules do not effect the female (she is under Grace) for it is in her heart to do them anyway, but they effect the male (he is under the rules ). If the female were to break one of the rules then she is no longer under Grace but under the rules. If the male was to change his heart and mind and become a new person who obeys the rules, not because he has too but because he desires too, will no longer be under the rules but under Grace as well.

  The Word of God give rules that is known as the law

  • MATTHEW 9:13: But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous (those who don't sin), but sinners (those who do sin) to repentance.

  So if a person does not sin, He does not need the law thus being under Grace. So whoever needs the law is not under Grace, So then who needs the law? Who is under the law?

  • I TIMOTHY 1:9: Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for SINNERS, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10: For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is CONTRARY to sound doctrine (BIBLE);

  So all those who disobey the law (Bible), need the law (Bible). How can a person claim to be under Grace and yet knowingly and willingly disobey the law, they are not under Grace but they are under the law.

  • GALATIONS 5:18: But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

  i will tell you the Truth, if you knowingly and willingly sin, you are not being led by the Spirit, the Spirit does not lead people to knowingly and willingly listen to Satan, The Spirit does not lead people to disobey the Word of God. Galations 5:18 says if (IF) you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law, This is absolutely True, However for a typical Christian to say i am Saved and under Grace and not under the law, and yet knowingly and willingly continue to sin, Are not being led by the Spirit, which puts them under the law. If you knowingly and willingly disobey the Word of God, you are not under Grace but under the law.

  The main conflict i have with today's typical Christians is they believe you can get Saved and continue to knowingly and willingly sin, as long as you ask for forgiveness all the time. i believe when you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord you are not to continue to knowingly and willingly sin. The next 3 versus i hope will show that what i believe is righteous and Godly and according to the Word of God.

  • LUKE 15:7: I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

  Did i hear that right? a just person needs no repentence, that must mean a just person does not knowingly and willingly sin, because if he did knowingly and willingly sin then would he not be in need to repent also? Yes he would, But it just said a just person needs no repentence, that can only mean one thing, A just person does not knowingly and willingly sin.

  The way Jesus Christ said this will lead you to believe that once a person accepts Him and all his sins are forgiven, then Heaven will be joyous over that person even over 99 people that are already truly Saved. Now a question for today's worldly Christians, every night does Heaven rejoice when you ask for forgiveness of your sins for that day? It seems to me if you are continually repenting for your sins, when do you become a just person which needs no repentence ? When ?????

  In the old days every time you commit a sin you had to take your best animal (their money) and sacrifice it for that sin. When Jesus Christ came and sacrificed Himself for us it was to forgive us our sins that are past (Roman 3:25). (Once) Every time you ask Jesus to forgive your sins, You put Christ back on the cross (Hebrews 6:6), i mean that is why we are able to ask forgiveness because of His sacrifice for us.

  • HEBREWS 10:26: For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, This is New Testament not Old. i believe what I'm about to write says the same thing. "For if we sin willfully after we have accepted Jesus Christ there remaineth no more forgiveness of sin". This makes since because Jesus told a man and a woman " Your sins are forgiven thee, go and sin no more (John 8:11) " He also said "Your sins are forgiven thee, go and sin no more lest a worse thing come upon thee (John 5:14)". You typical Christians what makes you think you are any different then they? Are you above the law?
  • I JOHN 3:6: Whosoever abideth in Him (Jesus) sinneth not, whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. In simpler terms. Whoever believes in Jesus Christ (Saved) does not knowingly and willingly sin. Whoever does so, has never seen Him and does not know Him. Which is the same as this verse:
  • MATTHEW 7:22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity (SIN).

  People the whole Bible tells you not to sin. Jesus told a man and a woman, Go and sin no more. This is the difficult path that Matthew 7:13-14 speaks of. Now maybe you understand why only a few will enter into the Kingdom of God.

  To follow Jesus Christ and become Truly Saved you are not to continue to knowingly and willingly sin. Think about it, if you knowingly and willingly choose to sin, who are you choosing to follow? Satan or Jesus Christ. The wages of sin is death, you are not excluded. Be patient, prepare yourself to accept Him (II Peter 1:10). Take one sin at a time and get rid of it, pray that Jesus Christ will help you. Jesus loves everyone and listens to all who call Him, even if they are not Saved. As long as you are making an honest effort to truly live a life of Christ, He will not take you away from this world till you are fully ready, (exception, if Christ comes first ).

  Once you are truly ready and accept Him, ALL your sins in the past (Romans 3:25) are forgiven unto you, Heaven will rejoice and you WILL receive the Holy Ghost and you WILL receive the gifts that the Bible speak of. WILL.

  • II CHRONICLES 7:14: If My (God's) people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their lands. First you must turn from your wicked ways, then He forgives you. If you continue to knowingly and willingly sin, you have not turned from your wicked ways, you have not truly repented of your sins, therefore you will not be forgiven. But many are not stedfast in their walk with Christ. 
  • 2 Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

  In order to be forgiven of your sins you first must cease from them. Woe to those people who claim they are Saved and going to Heaven yet continue to commit sins against God. For there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when God's wrath comes upon all those who do not obey Him (References).

  • Heb:5:9: And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; eternal Salvation unto them that obey Him, How is it Typical Christians today say they have eternal Salvation even though they do not obey Him entirely ? There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

In His Holy and Precious Name, Jesus Christ
