Our sins are forgiven by the blood of Jesus, for those who are saved by His grace. For us, our sins are blotted out, forgotten by the Lord, and removed as far as the east is from the west. A question that has come up lately is if our sins are forgotten, why does the Bible say every idle word that man may speak will be revealed on the day of judgement. Is our sins being forgotten just relating to salvation, and the idle words, which I think also could be every hidden deed, motive and thought in a lifetime, will they be revealed and accounted for at the judgement for believers for crowns and rewards? I may not have worded this exactly correct, but any thoughts would be appreciated.
