Law keeping and the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Kat4life View Post

...So, I've thought upon this a great deal in regards to what the Catholic Church teaches on the sacrament of reconciliation. 

Why?  :dizzy: They're an apostate church ( Jud 11, Re 18:4). :olinger:


No Idolatry & False Teaching

If Jesus were still keeping track of a believer's sins, then this would make God a liar when He said he will remember our sins no more. 

Are you out sinning so grace can abound? Ro 6:1

"If you blow off God, he'll blow you off." ~ Doug Giles Heb 10:26-31 



Christ died to take away all our sins… 

Are you still committing them? :smokie: 1 Jn 3:9 

...all: past, present, and future. 

How can he forgive a sin that you haven't committed yet? :dizzy: You think he sees a non-existent future? How many hairs are on the boogeyman’s head? 

Salvation does not depend on how good we are. 

You're not good (Ro 3:12). Get yourself a savior. :hammer:


Works vs. Faith

…I don't have to worry about losing my salvation every time I sin. It's covered in the blood.

Is that what you say to the Lord when you sin? "It's covered by your blood." :dizzy: 1 Jn 1:9

Yes, we should confess to God whenever we sin, but it's not for forgiveness.

Is that what 1 Jn 1:9 says? :hammer:

It's to restore our fellowship with God…...

Does that restore fellowship with the Lord, "It's covered by your blood." :freak:
When I hit someone with my grocery cart, I don't say, "It's covered by the blood. :freak: Have a nice day." :yoshi:

… unconfessed sins can hinder blessings and our prayers.

Why would you have unconfessed sins? :smokie:

The scriptures says in Romans 8:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,"…

You're reading our mail. :idunno: If you're in Christ Jesus, then you confess your sins (1 Jn 1:9).

Maybe you need a Savior, serpent.

Jesus loves you (Jn 3:16). Jesus is willing to save you (2 Pe 3:9). Repent (Eze 18:30-32; Ac 17:30). Believe (Mk 9:23).

[A]ntinomians think... A Savior = A license...

Greasy gracers (Jud 4). Charles Stanley was recently offended that anyone would accuse him of believing in cheap grace. He said God's grace is not cheap (:yawn: strawman [Eph 4:14]). There will be a lot of Baptists in hell (2 Pe 2:1).

…[T]he Catholic Church…

…The Roman Catholic brothel (Jud 11).:olinger:

…teaches that one is forgiven for all of their sins after the sacrament of reconciliation…

They say a lot of things (Jud 11). :blabla: Do you plan to burn with them? :smokie:Re 18:4

This is my favorite part:

‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

“And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

“They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” :burnlib: Re 18:10–20.

What happens if you don't confess a sin?

Those led by the spirit do confess their sins (Ro 8:14). We keep short accounts with God (1 Jn 1:9). :straight:

Are you still forgiven?

You think you're going to out negotiate a Middle Easterner? :squint: Matt. 1:18-25

How many in your eyes does one have to leave out before it shows they aren't a true Christian?

Why would a Christian leave out (your word) confessing any known sin? :dizzy: Do you mean, Jesus can have some of my life; but other areas of my life are off limits to him? 1 Co 15:31.  He'll have all of you or he'll have none of you (Lk 6:46). Your choice.

Every sin will be paid for--by you or by him. You can believe what Dallas Theological Cemetery teaches or you can become a convert (1 Thess. 1:9, 10).

If our salvation depends upon us recognizing, remembering, and repenting of every single individual sin we've ever committed…...

Why would you have to remember anything? Jn 14:26

…I'd say we are all in deep trouble.

Who's we? :granite: I have a savior. :straight: If I've offend him in anyway, he lets me know (Ro 8:14). :sigh:

…How do we walk in the light serpent?

Get saved (Ac 17:27).

It is not a strawman to say God's grace is not cheap.

Stanley’s grace (2 Pe 2:1), is cheap (Jud 4).

Jesus paid a great a terrible price to make it available to humanity if they will believe.

If one believes, he does not live habitually in sin (1 Jn 3:9). The Holy Spirit sanctifies him (1 Pet. 1:2). :straight:

Know what Stanley says to devils in his church who live habitually in sin? “That’s not you.” :dizzy: --Yes, it is (Jn 8:44).

I believe that when we are born again we would want God's will for our lives, not our own.

We pray Your will be done. :straight: They pray My will be done. :reals: Ro 8:14, Jud 11
