The "foot washing thread" drifted into this conversation. Here's take two: Scripture #1: OK...so my point is, when insist on making a list of "sins a Christian cannot commit. we must use all of the above verses' contents. We can't pick and choose. Better yet, let us all realize that we don't know the content of another's heart. We don't know what sins lie in a Christian's past. Moreover...the key is, forgiveness is available. But salvation is God's call--not man's. My point? We have no business making a "Christians cannot commit ______" list. One poster who proposes this dwells exclusively on sexual sins...ignoring sins such as coveting, and fearful. This is not a biblical approach. Why does this poster approach the "list" in such a manner? This poster's reasoning: Herein lies two weaknesses in the argument: 1. You cannot "pick and choose" which sins are "impossible" for Christians to commit, if you take these passage to mean such. I know the reason that there is "picking and choosing:" It is because said poster knows that they cannot with honesty say, "since I have been a Christian, I have not once been fearful or covetous." For that reason, they dwell on those sins they know they will never commit: adultery, homosexuality, and paedophelia. But they ignore the ones that indict them. 2. If one commits one of said sins...the weakness is not in God, but in man. God is big enough to forgive...it is just that man is too wicked to obey. Don't blame God for the sins of man (see second quote above). To do so is the height of fallacy. I expect to get flack for this post. I already have in a PM. But this issue was too important not to address.
