Can we talk about this myth?
If Jesus died to "pay" for our sins, then we have not truly been forgiven.
If Jesus "paid the penalty" for our sins, we have not truly been forgiven.
Do you hold to the notion that Jesus "paid" for our sins? If so, what is the scriptural basis of our opinion?

I need some advice from Christians on my relationship issue.
I have a friend that I have been friends for 10 years (since we were in high schools). Let's call her 'D'.
She is 2 years older than me and moved to the different state, but we continued to have our friendship lasted. We went to the same college, majored in the same major. We studied together and lived together as roommates for a brief amount of time. We are both Christians. We both believe strongly in Christ. She is my church friend as well.
Recently we got into a discussion. I am good at argument and loves argument and loves to talk. My friend, D, is not much into those things. She doesn't like to talk. She is quiet. So during the discussion/argument, she said "I don't...
Would you leave Christianity for $1,000,000? Maybe $2,000,000? If you were offered a Bentley or Rolls Royce car to turn your back on God, would you make the deal? Would you renounce Christ for a top of the line Rolex or Breitling watch? What would it take for you to leave Christianity?
Personally, I would never leave Christianity for anything. In fact, the Devil even offered to make me a multibillionaire to depart from my faith, but I rejected him many times.
In Genesis 3:17 -
"Cursed is the ground because of you"
In Romans 8:19-21
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
Adam was originally created to live forever. But after the fall he died at 930 years of age. Noah was the last of the long lifers and died at 950 years old. His son died at 600 and thereafter lifespans declined dramatically. Moses died at 120. But after that there were few people over 100 in the bible if any. It was only in...
I have an unstable relationship with my younger brother Daniel.
(My "friendships" and interpersonal relationships have been unstable for most of my relatively short life).
This morning, I went inside my father's house for the first time in 3 months so that I could choose books that I intend to donate to my local library
(My mother and father were not home)
My brother Daniel apologized for being unable to help me put my books into boxes....and then he went to serve at his church.
After Daniel returned from church, he did NOT ask me if I needed help, and he did NOT offer to help me. Daniel went inside his room and shut his door.
(This sort of behavior is very typical of my younger brother Daniel)
Daniel is very actively...
I'm supposed be away on a meditative break, but I need to put my foot down on this evil!

"Interestingly enough, the first appearance of the god of power in Christian thought, emerged in an argument for Universalism. A monk named William of Ockham, considered the question of wether or not God could bring a sinner to Heaven without changing him. William of Ockham argued; yes, God could bring a sinner to Heaven without changing Him, because God's greatest attribute was power, not Truth and Love, God was all-powerful and because He was all-powerful, He could drag that sinner kicking and screaming to Heaven, by His sheer might alone. See the Youtube video below for more details:...
Some accuse God of being, "unfair" in His election of some, but not all people; however, they don't seem to understand that the alternative view in which God simply provides a way for men to be saved, but leaves them to their own devices, i.e., "free will", makes God out to be truly unjust because not all people have had equal opportunity in which to make their "choice".
The Biblical doctrine of election teaches that God gives mercy on some, and justice to the rest. He would be completely just in condemning all mankind, would He not?
The alternate, and errant, view is that God gives everyone a choice, assuming that every person who has every lived has had access to good preachers, godly teachers, Bibles in their language, Christlike...
