Jesus Doesn't Forgive Sin, He Has Already Paid For It

1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”

Jesus doesn't forgive sin. That is correct! Jesus has already paid for everyone's sins with His precious blood. That is why forgiveness of sins is a free gift, since Christ has already paid for it. So to be saved, you simply need to freely receive God's gift.

One of the most deadly false prophets today is Evangelist Ray Comfort, who actually uses the phrase “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” while witnessing to a woman on an airplane. In the following YouTube video clip, look at the BIG LIE Evangelist Ray Comfort tells this poor deceived woman passenger on an airplane. Kindly, Ray says that “repentance” means “LIVING A LIFESTYLE THAT PROVES THE REALITY OF YOUR REPENTANCE!” And then he adds, “IT'S A CONTINUAL THING!” Read for yourself what Mr. Comfort horribly teaches this woman, in this transcript from the Living Waters video:
“So if the plane goes down, you'd end up in Hell! There are two things you have to do to be saved. Do you remember what they are? I told you what they are—You've got to repent and trust the Savior! ... God's offering you everlasting life upon your repentance and faith in Christ. Who in his right mind wouldn't say, 'Whoa! That's a good offer!' (The curious woman asks what it means to “repent”?)... Have you ever said you're sorry to someone you did something wrong to? That's all repentance is—You've sinned against God; it's a matter of saying, 'God, I'm sorry,' and then LIVING A LIFESTYLE that proves the reality of your repentance. That's what repentance is, it's a continual thing! God, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not going going to lie or steal or blaspheme Your name ever again. It has that attitude! And the second thing—trust in Jesus!” [emphasis added]

Dear reader, I triple-dog dare you to show me even one verse from the Holy Bible that teaches that “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” is required as part of being saved. You cannot! Now my friend, “a double-dog dare” is serious business, but a triple-dog dare is something you don't want to mess around with! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one Bible verse that agrees with these false statements by Ray Comfort.

The Gospel of John is God's Gospel track. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” PLEASE DON'T MISS THAT! God authored the Gospel of John specifically so “that believing ye might have life through his name.” That means we don't need any other Scripture than what is found in the Gospel of John to be saved. Where in the Gospel of John are we taught that, “LIVING A LIFESTYLE,” is necessary to receive eternal life? You cannot! Mr. Comfort is a bold-faced theological liar! Ray is ADDING to the Gospel, perverting it! This means Mr. Comfort is accursed by God. Galatians 1:9, “As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” I didn't say that, almighty God did!

What Ray Comfort is teaching is a strange doctrine of works, human effort, which simply cannot produce the new birth. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. That is exactly what Ray Comfort is doing!

Ray says to get saved you have to do “TWO THINGS”! In God's authentic plan of salvation, there is only ONE THING that you need to do, which is to BELIEVE THE GOSPEL! That is all we are told to do in the precious Gospel of John, nothing more. The Gospel is the GOOD NEWS of Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, the promised Messiah, Who gave His life on the cross to pay for our sins. Christ DIED for our sins, He was BURIED, and then He RESURRECTED on the third day from the dead for our justification. Those three elements comprise the Gospel:
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures..”

I am so glad and grateful that God made the GOSPEL very plain to see! Foolish men, like Ray Comfort and John MacArthur, have been blinded by Satan to add manmade religion to the Gospel and pervert the grace of God.

Yes, it is true, Jesus doesn't forgive sin. Christ has already paid for our sins with His precious blood, which he sprinkled on the heavenly Mercy Seat (Hebrews 9:12, 22-24; 12:24). Eternal life is a free gift which God offers to anyone who wants it. Simply receive it by faith, by taking God at His Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Just receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross by faith, believing that He died in your place on the cross, was buried and three days later Jesus bodily resurrected from the dead for our justification (i.e., when Christ raised up from the dead our faith was validated in Him). So you don't need to ask Jesus to save you, He is already freely offering you eternal life, and all you need to do is take it by faith. John 6:47, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
