I would like to ask for some opinions on this. I have often heard people use Galatians 6:7-9 and state the following three principles: (1) We reap what we sow. (2) We reap after we sow. (3) We reap more than we sow. If this is true, then where does Romans 8:1 enter in? If one has committed a sin and repented, then are they relieved of some of the consequences of their sin? If one sins but does not continue in that sin, are they free from some of the consequences? And, finally, has anyone really reaped even equal to the amount of wrong that he has sown as a Christian? Just wondering... FundamentalDan, kind of starting to get the hang of this place.
