    Yes, but his forgiveness is not a license for us to continue in sin! 1 John 1:9
  • Noel Grant
    God has done everything and still doing for us to follow him. God is so good that if even we are unfaithful he forgive us, once we repent and ask forgiveness, he is always willing to forgive us our sins
  • Dianna Kuykendall
    What has God done to us that we should turn away from him? Should we expect less for our unfaithfulness to him? He loves us so much he sent his only begotten son to die in our place for our sins. Be faithful to him and turn not away. Our time draws nearer every moment.

    Eagle rock, I think you are right on. It's last call here, especially with all the crud 2105-16 saw passed in the house. Rev. 9:21 ,they repented not of their murders (abortion), sorceries(Greek:pharmacist),fornications (Strong's doesn't call it regular immoral sex!) and their thefts. We live in a drug culture with the spirit of rebellion( to God's laws, man changed his to suit) God bless y'all
