Peter Abbott1 Stars Out Of 5Religion at it's worst!June 9, 2018Peter AbbottQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1We Pew-Sitters go to church religiously, and all we get is "religion." What am I saying? The message Charles Stanley and nearly every other preacher is giving us Pew-Sitters when we ask, "When and how are my sins forgiven?" is pure Phariseeism. It is part of a different gospel, that is no gospel at all. It teaches that Jesus paid for our sins, but we must do several things to get that payment applied to our sin account. Get out your concordance and see how many times your Bible says Jesus paid for your sins. NEVER! And the truth is that no preacher can ever give you full assurance that your sins are forgiven.
So - what is the true Gospel? Consider that the Apostle John refers to believing about 100 times in his Gospel. Not once does John say that the result of believing is that your sins are forgiven. Consider that nobody in the New tEstament ever tells another person to ask God to forgive his/her sins, and nobody ever does that - ask God to forgive their sins. Why? Because the early church knew something we have lost. It is contained in John 1:29. "Behold! The Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world!"
What does that mean? It means that all sin - past, present, and future - was taken away at the cross. It means that God is no longer in the business of forgiving sin because it was removed, taken away, divorced, gone at the cross. All sin is forgiven. But that knowledge does you no good unless you believe it. If you are believing that your sins are forgiven when you ask God to forgive them, you are denying the finished cross-work of Christ. If you are believing that your sins are forgiven when you confess them or when you repent of them, then you are denying the finished cross-work of Christ.
The result is that Jesus will tell you that He didn't know you because you didn't know Him.
If you want to learn the true Gospel of grace, then get Malcolm Smith's book, The Power of The Blood Covenant.

FlaBelieverAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Meaningful, practical study applicable to all!June 30, 2011FlaBelieverAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Our ladies' class is about to complete this study - it has been so helpful and practical as we all seek to mature in our walks with God. The inability to forgive severely limits the joy and growth that a Christian is meant to experience in his/her daily walk and Dr. Stanley's practical study addresses how to have victory in forgiving others and ourselves after first acknowleding the forgiveness we have received from our Heavenly Father. Highly recommend this for group studies!
Denise5 Stars Out Of 5April 23, 2010DeniseThe Gift of Forgiveness by Charles Stanely is a book which God will use to help you learn how to forgive. Forgiveness is always the answer no matter what the offense done to you. It's what our Savior did to us when we sinned against Him. We are without excuse not to do the same. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with unforgiveness.
