It is true to say that Christ’s death on the cross paid for all the sins of man, even those who were born centuries after that event – and even for us today.
And does not such a teaching encourage a lax attitude towards holy living since everything has already been “sealed” if we agree with the premise that God has forgiven all the future sins of believers.
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed” (James 5:16).
To ignore the voice of conscience is to go down the slippery slope of damnation and judgment: "Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith (1 Timothy 1:18-19).
In a sense, it is true that we should not be overly ‘sin conscious’ since Christ through the cross has enabled us to overcome sin. But we must not fail to recognise the fact that the propensity to sin is a reality in our lives as is evident in Romans chapter 7: 14-20 and Galatians chapter 5:16-21. http://bit.ly/1awc42C
If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin, they will die for it; because of the sin they have committed they will die. But if a wicked person turns away from the wickedness they have committed and does what is just and right, they will save their life (Ezekiel 18:26-27). http://bit.ly/1mIQKvq
Who says all our future sins will be forgiven the moment we become believers?
Isn’t that a ploy by Satan to encourage complacency, careless and irresponsible living?
Satan rejoices when believers rest in a false sense of security that all is well, that all their sins have been dealt with once and for all at the point of conversion. This condition reminds me of the frog which finds great delight sitting in a basin of warm water. Finally, when water temperature reaches boiling point, it is too late to jump out of the water.
“Simply stated, there is not a single verse anywhere in the Bible that pronounces us already forgiven for our future sins (meaning, sins we have not yet committed). Not one verse. Nowhere. Not even a hint of such a concept.”
"The fundamental deception in hyper-grace is that all of your future sins are forgiven in advance."
