If it means he died to eradicate our previous sins, then why since we continue to sin? Did he die to forgive our past sins? If so, does that mean the cup was full and needed emptying, since we have continued to sin? Did he die to halt our sins, if so that did not work.


This forum is not aptly named for this thread, as this is not conspiracy related but there is no central topic on religion, at least that I have noticed. Maybe this is not even an acceptable topic for this forum? If so, moderators feel free to delete the thread.

The life of Jesus was supposedly given in order to forgive all sin.

That is, all sin, past, present, and future...or at least that is what Christian dogmatic rule states.

Basically, all you need to do to accept this 'gift' of forgiveness from God, is acknowledge that Jesus is your saviour, and accept him into you heart, as gideon's likes to put it.

It's hard to buy into, but that's why it's called 'Faith'.

Thats the whole point. Man keeps sinning. We have proven incapable of government and order. This is our big lesson. Plus the fact that are many unseen forces turning desires and ideals into greed and indulgences that we think are innate. People actually think they are GOD.

Mystery (ies) of the Ages is a book that helps answer many of your types of questions.

Christ died to give man back the grace of God to forgive his sins. Man had rejected grace for law in the garden.
