    افتراضي Sin of mortal

    Sin of mortal ) Death)
    “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not, but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not”.
    (1 John 5:18)

    What does the Bible have to say about sin of death? This explanation is about people who convert to another faith or marry a non Christians?
    I believe what some churches teach is very different from that which written in sacred scriptures.
    According to what some churches teach, those people who convert are lost sheep and they still can come back to God and receive the forgiveness because God is so kind and merciful.
    Some churches teach what the people want to hear and the result is, those people still can go in their own old ways, no matter what the Bible tells.
    If we can not understand the terms of love and the nature of the Biblical message given to us by God himself, then everybody still can go in his own way, do his own choice, to repent someday the time he decides and things can straightened again for him he guess, but this thought is contrary to God’s word.
    By reading the Bible we get the necessary help to find out the truth about a serious mistake that can destroy the life of someone thinking of converting to another faith
    Reading (Matthew 12:31, 32) we learn that there are two different ways for sin, one can be forgiven and the other is a sin for death. God can forgive the adultery, theft, hatred, lying even the unintended murder etc, which all are sins that can receive forgiveness. But one particular sin is as serious as it written in (1 John 5: 16), converting from the Christian faith is “A sin unto death.” Moreover, John advised to not pray for the person who converts, because it puts man’s life in a serious jeopardy.
    People who believe in Christ then convert to a different religion or easily apostate, been rebels against God ignoring the fact that Jehovah God is the only living God and this action stir up His anger, but the question is who can stand against God?
    Did Satan stands against God? And, did Adam stirs up God’s anger? About Adam, yes he did after he ate from the tree ignoring God’s command as it is written in (Genesis 2:17), God said: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it”, but Adam’s sin against the command of God was not that kind of sin unto death if compared with what Satan did. Adam was a rebellious and in God’s thoughts Adam needed to be shown the error of his way to find his way back to his father like a prodigal son. As Adam broke God’s command, he lost his perfection as it is written in Genesis 3: 6, 7, and God could trust Adam, Eve and their children no more. Adam “the fallen man who corrupted his own life” has to pay for such tragic transgressions he did, why? The Bible reminds us that “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), this is why man dies.
    A different action Satan did, his sin was far greater when thought he is like God and started to be (the deceitful of man) after he lost the hope of his forgiveness and this was a sin of death.
    We may wonder, why some people choose not to read the Bible? Maybe they can not reserve some time for the Bible, or maybe they do not understand what they read or it could be more worse if they do not care as they may loose the only chance to get saved by ignoring the usefulness of reading the Bible which is the only source of knowledge of the Living God and the very essence of their salvation. (Matthew 25: 30). Those slothful servants (Mathew 25:18, 26) as the Bible calls them, are those careless and selfish, who are often preoccupied in their desires and pleasures and by doing this they loose the only chance to enter the eternal life and be saved.
    God blessed man and woman in the beginning (Genesis 1: 27, 28), so the desire for love and marriage is a part of the humankind’s nature. As Christians we learned from the Bible that we are only allowed to fall in love and get married to someone who is a Christian (I Corinthians 7: 39). The apostle Paul wrote in his second letter to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 6: 14-18) about the man who goes against the will of God, marring to a non Christian person and how this marriage can cost him the loss of his eternal life. According to the Bible, this marriage is adultery, as well kids born for this marriage become victims. If we go back to the Old Testament and read in (Exodus 20: 5), this marriage can be a big example to explain why God said in the second Command “For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth Generation of them that hate me.” Marrying a non-Christian person is wrong and if this marriage is not broken, children of this marriage will have no future as it is written in (Ezekiel 18: 2) “The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.” Also men having same sex relationships (Leviticus 18: 22) and women having same sex relationships (Roman 1:26) are good examples to show how far man and woman can go against their nature and God, they dishonouring their bodies which is a temple for the Spirit of God. (Romans 1: 24, 26, 27, 28)
    Paul wrote to the Hebrews trying to give such a picture of those people who convert into another religion saying; “If we sin wilfully, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation which shall devour the adversaries.” (Hebrews 10: 26, 27, 29- 31, 38, 39)
    Also Peter in his second letter admonished; “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to run from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, the dog turned to his own vomit again, and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” (2 Peter 2: 21, 22) it is good for man to learn the truth from the Bible because “God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are our ways His ways.” God means what he says as it is written in (Isaiah 55:8, 11)”So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth, it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” What happen to those children there after is because of this marriage which becomes a deadly sin and what future is waiting for them? No future for people who loose themselves?

    God promised to help man come back, and all his sins can be forgiving. Adam’s sin of obedient can be forgiven, it is a sin for forgiveness, but this sin can make God angry if man lives a daily sinful life. Christians too might loose their eternity as well as the non-Christians if they do not confess their sins and begin a new life to escape the anger of God.
    Anybody involved with the non Christians in a loving relationship, marriage or converted to their religion, this person is guilty. The Bible says; It is a “Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost and shall not be forgiven unto men” (Matthew 12: 31), no forgiveness. (Hebrew 6: 4-8) and no prayers can help. (1 John 5: 16). It is clear in the Bible that the person who converts has:
    1) Trampled under foot the son of God.
    2) Has counted the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified an unholy thing.
    3) Hath insulted the Spirit of grace. (Hebrews 10: 29)
    But did God really mean it? Is it fair they loose their life for a mistake? Paul has answered this question in his letter to the Romans (Romans 9: 14- 16) said: “What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” It is clear in the Bible that “the word of God shall stand for ever.” (Isaiah 40:8). So we need to think twice and whenever we can to learn how to use the information we learn from the Bible to protect ourselves against the sin and to use it as a guide before taking any unexpected action against God. We need to read the Bible to always be awaken to understand the satanic deceitful.
    Still there is a hope for those lost sheep, “Lost sheep are people who go after their desires, but remain Christians.” (Matthew 10: 6) and the good is still there is time to come back before it is too late.

    Bless father,

    Thank you for this article, and welcome to the forums.

    I have some comments, if I may:

    You mentioned the anger of God, is this from human perspective?

    You said that Christians who convert to other faith in one way or another will not be saved, but what about those who have not heard about Jesus Christ, or have a corrupted picture of Him from their own faith or from "unfaithful" source?

    Pray for me father,

    In IC XC

    Thank you for your interest in such important article like this. Since my childhood I knew quite number of fool Christians (Psalm 14:1) who dared Jesus by converting into Islam, leaving Jesus ashamed, the only person who in His name shall the gentiles trust(Matthew 12:18-21). Does not matter if they did not know is it the right step or not? Because after their fall nothing can help the unfaithful but woe unto that man by whom Jesus is betrayed. (Luke 22:22).
    About people who have not heard nor have a corrupted picture of Jesus because of the lies written in their book, I think the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ have reached even the deep rain forests by now.
    Read (Romans 1:18) about the wrath of God please. This verse indicates how God still angry with man as long as man is a sinner.
    I have got another article for the next Sunday about (God of the old Testaments is He a mystery?); maybe it can answer some of your questions.
