    One thing says the market owner but another says the butcher. God says one thing but we interpret another. Please do not compare a human being to a dog. We are to live for ever in Jesus dogs live and then die to never come back to life.

    A dog going back to its vomit is something disgusting and we can't imagine how they could even do that. Fools returning to their stupidity are likened to these dogs.

    "Only the dead sin not." Paul said Romans 7:18, "...In my flesh dwelleth not good thing." Thank God there is a resurrection, and a new body coming one day! Yes, the flesh loves to sin, but we must control our fleshly appetites! It is a choice, a daily choice that must be made.

    I think every one has been in the same situation , Tara. Of repeating the same sin, but the scriptures 1 John 1: 9 says If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Keep coming to him, our Saviour and confessing till its gone.
