Bible Commentary for John 9:31

Wesley's Notes for John 9:31


9:31 We - Even we of the populace, know that God heareth not sinners - Not impenitent sinners, so as to answer their prayers in this manner. The honest courage of this man in adhering to the truth, though he knew the consequence, #John 9:22|, gives him claim to the title of a confessor.

    If baptized once, years ago, should you be baptized again. To enter into the Kingdom of Heaven
  • Adam - in Reply on John 9:31
    Hi Jan,

    It's my opinion that if you doubt your sincerity at the time your were baptized then I would do it again. There is no penalty for being baptized again and rededicating yourself. However, if you were sincere then fell away and are coming back again I personally don't think baptism each time you sin or fall away is necessary. There's nothing wrong with doing it either, but are other ways to recommit and return to following Jesus more closely. I was baptized when I was young and in later years I doubted my sincerity so I was baptized again and was glad I did. God bless!

    It is self-explanatory. If God hears sinners what is the sense in being saved.Look also at Psalm 66:18 and Deutoronomy 29:18-22 and Romans 6 - it is frightening what today 's church believe that you can continue to sin and have God on your side.Sin is of the Devil and whosoever continues in sin is in satans domain -God cannot help unless you leave that domain like the prodigal son. Sin is the worst thing that ever happen to anyone and the worst thing happenning to people all over today.
