    Are we in debt to God even before we made first choice to sin/disobey God?

    Or does it start up accumulating up to God at/after initial sinning?

    I think this begs a certain kind of "accumulation" aspect to the whole idea that I am not committed to.....I think if we do that.... then we run into questions like you submit above.....God chose the penalty for sin, and he set the standard for justice to be met....I think he might very well have for instance.....Sovereignly made the penalty for sin either less or more as he chose, but only within the limits of the confines of his nature. Justice, as a necessary part of his nature would define, I think, the limits of what reasonably qualifies as a fair payment for sin.

    Perhaps not a sin debt, but...

    By simple virtue of him having created us, we owe him worship and honor. But, according to Romans 1 we don't give him that...so he sends a redeemer...

    Now we are doubly in his debt...

    If we have received Christ then he takes care of our debt. However there is a theology of rewards at the judgment seat of Christ. Wasting your life will mean that we are like the lazy servant that hid his talent in the ground. Utilizing our gifts and opportunities will mean more rewards.

    The servant the hid his talent is not a believer and will go to hell.

    Matthew 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Romans 13:8

    ["Love Fulfills the Law"] Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.


    When did that debt begin, or does or doesn't have to do with this OP and why or why not?

    This OP made me think of that verse and I am fishing to see what kind of responses i would get from that verse with the OP. It might not go any where.
