Does God forgive all sins if you repent?
All sins shall be forgiven, except the sin against the Holy Ghost; for Jesus will save all except the sons of perdition.
What does the Bible say about how do you repent?
Repent means to “change your mind about” or “to turn away from.” If you make a decision to turn away from your sins, that means you are walking away all of your sins, no matter how many of them there may be. You know He will forgive you when you genuinely repent through the Word of God (1 John 1:9 & Hebrews 4:14-16).
Is it OK to sin and then ask for forgiveness?
It’s never “ok” to sin. Asking forgiveness only means something if you genuinely intend not to do it again. If you are already making mental excuses about why you’ll probably do it again, then essentially you are already committing the sin again in your heart even as you ask forgiveness.
How many times will God forgive a repeated sin?
But Jesus said “seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21-22). Of course Jesus didn’t mean literally 490 times, but rather that the number of times are not to be counted. This is our Lord’s principle of forgiveness, and we may be certain that he did not bind it only upon Peter, but also upon himself.
Does God forget our sins?
Paul told the Roman Christians God would forgive our sins and cover them up (Romans 4:7). When God forgives our sin he puts it out of his mind; he erases it from the pages of time; he forgets it. Through Christ, God forgives our sin. Because of Christ, God forgets our sin.
Does God always forgive?
God knows the heart of a sinner and always forgives (absolves) and reconciles to God’s self provided the sinner is willing to come back to the Father and to begin a new life. This does not depend on whether those offended have forgiven him or her.
What is the true meaning of repentance?
Repentance is the activity of reviewing one’s actions and feeling contrition or regret for past wrongs, which is accompanied by commitment to and actual actions that show and prove a change for the better.
What are the four steps of repentance?
The first is responsibility: We must recognize that we have done wrong. The second is regret: We must have true remorse for doing wrong and for the pain and problems we’ve caused. The third is resolve: We must be committed never to repeat the act regardless of the temptations or situation.
What is the prayer of repentance?
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
What are the 7 sins of the Bible?

What does God say about being lazy?
Proverbs 13:4 – “The soul of the lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.”
