If you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, does this mean that you are saved from all sin?

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, are you saved from all sin that you commit, even if you committed it intentionally? The Bible says that you are saved when you accept Jesus as your Savior, and when you believe that He died to save humanity from sin. So, for example, if you intentionally commit a sin, such as having lustful feelings from pornographic images, or if you say a curse word, do you have anything to worry about? Will you be forgiven, right then and there? Do you need to apologize? What SHOULD you do?

    YES! :)

    There is no salvation; there is no sin.

    Be a mature adult and admit you’re not perfect. Take responsibility for your own actions.

    yes, now you can shoot babies in the face.

    Salvation is when you believe in your heart that Jesus was the son of God, and died on the cross for all of humanity’s sins, past, present, and future. You must also REPENT, which is turning away from sin to live a better life. When you sin, and realize your sin, you must pray for forgiveness.

    So no, you cannot continue to live a sinful life of cursing and pornography. It’s either God, or the devil.

    Well according to Christianity you can do whatever you want and be saved as long as you accept jesus as your lord savior If you kill people all your life and you’ll still be saved as long you accept jesus in your heart..If a person who help out people all their lives without believing in jesus they’re going to hell.It could explain why so many Christians act the way they act.

    Those christians who sin after baptism have penance work to do,or they can find alternate ways of doing indulgences to work off their sins which we hope will never be repeated,for other christians it will be the furnace,for they have committed a crime so evil that I could not forgive them for it.

    Yes. Christ died for all, and for all sin –past present future. (I mean, how much of your sin was in the future when Christ died??? ) Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    Yes, you should seek God’s forgiveness for errors,and ask Him to change your “wants”. While there are many who are abruptly changed in the physical realm when they accept Christ (we have all heard the testimonies of those who go cold turkey off drugs and don’t even desire them…) most of us have to learn to grow in the followings of Christ. Many things are bad habits, and need to be replaced with good ones to overcome them, but it is possible.

    Saved from sin? No. Jesus died for all past present and future repented sin. When a believer sins, he or she needs to acknowledge it, approach God and ask for and receive His forgiveness and then move forward knowing your sin has been forgiven. Many make the mistake of thinking they are “home free” because sins were paid for by Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. We have to do our part.

    According to Protestant theology, when you are “saved” a number of things occur. You are redeemed, born again (regenerated), justified, forgiven, adopted into the family of God, etc. This is the work of God that he starts and will eventually finish at the resurrection. They believe that present sins should be confessed (and often cite 1 John 1:9 as a prooftext).

    First, you should remove all pornographic images from your life and thereby remove the temptation to sin. Then you should ask Jesus to forgive you for the thoughts and actions caused by them and to keep you from them from now on. You also have a part in this. Jesus does not force us to abide by the word of God. He simply tells us what it is. It is up to you to resist the temptation. If you do this, God will provide a way for you to escape it.

    James 4:7 Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
    James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
    1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    Yes, you are saved from all sin. However, when you sin your relationship with Jesus will suffer and there is a good possibly God will chastise you to get your attention and lead you back. Jesus Christ paid the penalty of our sins. When you sin you should ask Jesus to forgive you and to help you overcome this sin and lead you in the right way. Over your life time Jesus will lead you out of sin and in time you won’t like those things that you so easily fell to. Now for one thing get rid of the porn.

    Yes, you are forgiven, when you confess it as sin; but God wants you yo learn how to overcome sin. Sin is not to be the habitual course of your life any longer……..

    1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

    5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

    8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

    11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

    Romans 6:1-14

    I believe that actual or personal sin is a voluntary violation of a known law of God by a morally responsible person. It is therefore not to be confused with involuntary and inescapable shortcomings, infirmities, faults, mistakes, failures, or other deviations from a standard of perfect conduct that are the residual effects of the Fall. However, such innocent effects do not include attitudes or responses contrary to the spirit of Christ, which may properly be called sins of the spirit. We believe that personal sin is primarily and essentially a violation of the law of love; and that in relation to Christ sin may be defined as unbelief.

    The Bible states that a moral failing—the original sin—on the part of our first parents was passed on to all humanity. Consequently, all of us are born with a stain of imperfection. “All unrighteousness is sin,” says the Bible.—1 John 5:17.
    Some two thousand years ago, the apostle Paul expressed frustration over the fact that ‘the good that he wished he did not do, but the bad that he did not wish was what he practiced.’ (Romans 7:19) If we are honest, we have to admit that our personal situation is similar. Perhaps we desire to live by the Ten Commandments or by some other standard of conduct, but like it or not, we all fall short. It is not that we deliberately choose to violate a norm, but we are simply weak. What is the explanation? Paul himself gives the answer: “If, now, what I do not wish is what I do, the one working it out is no longer I, but the sin dwelling in me.”—Romans 7:20.
    he inspired apostle Paul gave God’s answer to the above question. He wrote: “The love the Christ has compels us, because this is what we have judged, that one man died for all; . . . and he died for all that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for him who died for them and was raised up.” (2 Corinthians 5:14, 15) If a person appreciates that Jesus’ sacrifice can potentially free him from the effects of sin—and he desires to show gratitude for that provision—he should strive to live his life in accord with God’s wishes for him. This includes acquiring an understanding of what God requires, training his conscience according to Bible standards, and then living his life in harmony with them.—John 17:3, 17.

    Sin, then, is not just a question of feeling bad about ourselves because we may have lost face. It is not just a case of having to answer to public opinion or to society because we may have fallen short of some ideal. Violating God’s laws on sex, honesty, respect, worship, and so on, damages our personal relationship with him. If we deliberately practice sin, we are making ourselves God’s enemies. This is a truth that demands sober reflection.—1 John 3:4, 8.

    The good news is that forgiveness through the redeeming value of Jesus’ sacrifice is possible if we sincerely repent of our sins and leave them. “Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned and whose sins have been covered,” wrote Paul. “Happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account.”—Romans 4:7, 8.

    As a Lutheran (and I’m not sure what exact religion you are) I believe that yes, you are saved. But don’t do a sin on purpose, and even if you do, you will still be forgiven. But you still have to ask. So like any time your praying just add for forgiveness of your sins. No, you don’t have to say every single sin you have done, just say something similar to, “Forgive me of my sins,” or something. Hope I helped!

  • David Williams

    no, you are saved from eternal damnation which is the wages of sin.you are and will be a sinner until the resurrection when the sinful flesh is changed forever. the word of God speaks expressly that who God loves he chastens and scourges every son he receives. hebrews 12:5-8

  • Chris

    When you believe in JESUS for His free gift of eternal life in heaven, then you are forgiven ALL SINS past, present, and future, and you will be in heaven, no matter what.

    So why try to avoid sin? Because:

    1) Sin might have painful natural consequences, and sin brings people into bondage. Unnecessary present-life consequences might come.

    2) Sin can interrupt intimate fellowship with the Lord. That intimate fellowship with the Lord is restored by confession of sins to the Lord (1 John 1:9).

    3) A sinful lifestyle might cause loss of potential rewards in heaven, since the believer would be busy in sin and not in service to the Lord

    So sin doesn’t profit, and you should ask JESUS to freely give you the power of His Holy Spirit to overflowing, to help you fight against sin. But sin also CANNOT separate the believer from Jesus. Jesus paid for all our sins with His death on the cross and His shed blood! And then Jesus rose from the dead! NOTHING ELSE pays for ANY of our sins, not works, not good deeds, not water baptism, nothing.

    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! :D And the Trinity is true! Jesus is the Messiah!

    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to hell, is by believing in JESUS for His free gift of eternal life in heaven, believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what! John 3:16, John 6:47! :D

    Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in JESUS for His free gift of salvation! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).

    Please pray now: “Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross to pay for my sins and that You rose from the dead, and I thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die! :D

    Yes, the blood of Christ Jesus will wash all sins away. If you continue to place your faith in Christ Jesus and repent from your sins, you will be saved and will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven when you die.
