WHAT HAPPENS IF A PERSON FORGETS TO CONFESS A CERTAIN SIN OF THE PAST? IS IT JUST LUCK OR DOES GOD PICK AND CHOOSE SITUATIONS TO GET INVOLVED IN? Read Transcript


Well, we'd like to take a few minutes to answer

some of the email questions you've sent in.

So we'll start Bring it On with Patrick's question, "What

happens if a person forgets to confess

a certain sin of the past?

Does God still love and accept them?"

GORDON ROBERTSON: Of course it does, Patrick.

He still loves people.

And while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

And the apostle Paul said, "this is love"

while we're in the middle of sin.

Now if you go look at the Torah, and you

start looking at the 613 commandments there.

Start realizing how many sins, how many violations you

have committed over your life when

you look at what Jesus says.

If you just hate your brother, if you just express hatred

that you have sent, you look at these things,

and you go who can be saved.

And the disciples of Jesus asked the same question--

who can be saved?

Well, the wonderful news is his blood covers all sin.

He takes care of all of it.

And so either the sins you remember and confess,

or the sins that you have forgotten about,

or the sins that you've committed you didn't even

know you were committing a sin.

He covers all of this.

And so just confess that He is Lord.

Confess that He is the Messiah.

Confess that He is your Savior, and you will be saved.

Gordon, Frank has a question that many

have asked over the years, "Why does it

seem like God intervenes or sends

angels to stop some things--

something bad from happening in some cases,

but in other cases He doesn't?

Is it just luck or does God pick and choose situations

to get involved in?"

Frank, that question is as old as the "Book of Job."

And I would encourage you to go read that.

It's one of the wisdom books of the Bible.

And in my lifetime, it's the times where

things weren't going well.

And the times where it seemed like I

was pressed in hedged in, those were the times

where I learned more about God.

So there is a fellowship that you

have with Him and suffering.

Why that is, I don't know.

But it happens and so take advantage of it

when you're going through it.

But don't blame God for your problems.

Realize that.

He is the always, the answer.

He is the solution to every human need.

Grace asks, "What's a good thing to tell nonbelievers

when they say they don't believe that God wrote

the Bible through His prophets and disciples

because there are different translations?"

GORDON ROBERTSON: There are different translations

of all the classics.

Just try to translate some of your own writings

say into Spanish or French, and you'll realize while there are

multiple interpretations, multiple different words

and expressions, it doesn't mean they're different.

And here's something that you need to tell your friends.

All four of the gospels agree on this one thing,

Jesus was raised from the dead.

That is incredible.

And that is what our faith is based on.

That He died, and He rose again.

It's not based on some nuance of language.

It's based on that fact.
