"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).

The declaration is: All have sinned. God commands us all to repent and sin no more, for forgiveness of past sins. Explanation: We all have sinned, and we all accept it. "Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 5:12 ... all have sinned:" So, God tells us to repent for our sins, and we admit that also. Then, Jesus Christ tells not to sin anymore, the Bible repeats it in many places that we should not commit sin, and the churches knows it, but preachers say that we cannot live without sinning. Doctrines are made in support of living in sin and going to heaven in spite of it. Churches are all for it. But neither majority of theologians, nor the churches can take anybody to heaven, but God has to take us to heaven. God forgives all kinds of sins to give us provisions, prosperity, healing, etc, but he will not forgive us by the washing of his own blood, until and unless we stop sinning, by the grace and power of God. This is the forgiveness that will take us to eternity and give us rewards. Churches will not preach this scripture truth. They should not hide this truth. Please read my important article on this topic from this link: 1. "Forgives by Blood", 2. "Forgives All." Thank you.
God Bless You
