What is the big deal about being a sinner, if all you need to do and say is you accept Jesus, and you are forgiven? As I've read numerous times, the unbeliever will go to hell NOT for their sins, but for their not believing and accepting Jesus into their heart.
If this is so, then why are there sins, and why are you held accountable to them if you are already forgiven of them?
If Jesus died for all of your sins, why is there so much emphasis on sins (and calling yourself a sinner) when his death forgave all of your sins?
Or am I not understanding it correctly.
Because after receiving Christ you repent, change your life and stop doing those bad things you did before you accepted Christ. If you continue in your sins then it's taking Jesus sacrifice and love for granted and you truly aren't saved. Faith is dead without works and works is dead without faith. We all sin even after we accept Christ, but as Christians we do our best not to make the same mistakes over and over again. IMO if you continue to live your life in sin after accepting Christ then you are mocking God, he knows your heart if your prayer was sincere or not.
