God’s Patience: Does God Tolerate Sin? Part 1

 

Today because of the ignorance of God’s hatred of sin, and His nature of holiness, love, almighty power and grace for the Christian, many in the church have no clue of what God’s amazing patience toward them entails.

Here is  the truth that many miss, God’s love without failure; compels, pushes, controls, and empowers the narrow road follower of Jesus to walk in righteousness, not live in constant sin. For example, the apostle Paul states, “Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.” [Romans 6:18 (NLT)] John adds, “Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.” [1 John 3:9 (NKJV)]

But I hear from so many people of the church the very opposite. They argue for sin in their lives, and expect God to be forgiving them constantly. They quote scripture to make it sound okay to sin all the time. They never see the cross as salvation from sin, but only from hell.
