The devil has no problem spreading lies about God. Example: God is sooo nice; He will just turn a blind eye to this sin. What does the devil accomplish with this? That we are lured away from the only way not to end up in hell. The devil does everything to lure people away from Jesus.
“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.”
(Acts 13:38-39; NIV)
God does not turn a blind eye to sins
God does not turn a blind eye. God cannot just “let it go” because God is justice. And that is why every single one of your sins is punished.
The biblical certainty that God loves us does not mean that he turns a blind eye when it comes to our sins. No. God punishes every single one of our sins. And: There is always only the maximum penalty = eternal separation from Him in hell. God cannot just look away over a sin from us. Each of our sins must be punished.
The question you need to answer for yourself: Who does God punish for your sins? You? Or Jesus?
Don’t be stupid. Gratefully accept the offer of God and Jesus. Jesus is your Savior. “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1; NIV)
- How can a loving God send people to hell? God doesn’t send anyone to hell; people make the wrong choice
Does God punish sins twice?
So once you put your trust in Jesus as your Savior, the devil tries to tell us new lies: When you sin, God will punish you. He tries to get us to believe lies like that God will make us sick to teach us lessons.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
For a Jesus-Sheep, there are no longer any sins between you and God. Does that mean once we are saved that we won’t sin anymore? No, unfortunately, we will still sin from time to time. But you can ask God — your loving heavenly Father — to help you sin less and less and become more and more like Jesus in your actions. In your true self, your spirit, you are already righteous, holy and blameless (see Colossians 1:22), and no sins can undo that. But in our body and our soul (thoughts, feelings, memories, emotions, etc.) we still sin from time to time.
