How To Stop Sinning Long Enough For God To Forgive You

Posted: May 6, 2015 in Uncategorized

This is such an important message that I want to share it with the readers on my blog. Those of us who have been spiritually abused are often led to believe that we are unacceptable to God and to the church because we don’t behave the way the leadership would like us to behave. Maybe we ask too many questions or point out problems that they don’t want to address. And in the process we are made to feel that we are so sinful that God cannot love us or except us because they don’t love us or except us. Please know that you do not have to except the message of church leaders if it is anything other than God’s love and grace as described in this post.

That verse is packed with grace not only for what it says, but for what it doesn’t say.

  • It doesn’t say Christ died for you…
