Am I forgiven if I have forgotten to confess a sin or sins? If I have done a sin, am I only forgiven until I do next sin and have asked forgiveness for it? Does God only forgive me for the sins I have remembered to confess? Does God hear my prayers if I have not totally forgiven someone?
I know there are many Christians who are afraid that they may not be forgiven, and many think of what Jesus said in the Sermon Of the Mount in Matthew 6:15, where Jesus says that God can not forgive you until you have forgiven others (perfectly).
Is God behind hurricanes and natural disasters, or negative things that happens? Does God judge people and nations today because of sin? This is quite a hot topic and I have heard some Christian say, as an evangelist quite recently, that God sends hurricanes for punishments for sin today, even nations (this would also indirectly say that God punishes you for every sin your do, even today).
But what about what Jesus did on the cross? And what about John 3:16 and 17? What about Jesus that Jesus has forgiven all sin, for all, once and for all?
I think some mix law and grace, and the old covenant and with the new one. What did Jesus say about this? See or listen to this week’s encouragement!
