Have you felt your sin was beyond forgiveness?


And anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Joel 2:32NLT

"I assure you that any sin can be forgiven, including blasphemy; but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. It is an eternal sin." He told them this because they were saying he had an evil spirit. Mark 3:28-29 NLT

"But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too." Mark 11:25 NLT

Nothing can ever separate us from his love. Romans 8:38 NLT

The Bible commands us to forgive others when they have wronged us and to seek forgiveness when we have wronged others. We must do this to follow the example of God, who extends to us the ultimate pardon–forgiveness for our sins.
Forgiveness is not based on the magnitude of our sin, but the magnitude of the forgiver's love. No sin is too great for God's complete and unconditional love. The Bible does mention one unforgivable sin–an attitude of defiant hostility toward God that prevents us from accepting his forgiveness. Those who don't want his forgiveness are out of his reach.

May the Lord bless you and keep you

    Quoting  :

There is only one transgression that is "beyond forgiveness"-
Divorce is not on that list of "one".
Sadly- there is a price to pay for our sins IF WE CLING TO THEM and believe God thinks we are unique. PAIN is not condemnation- it's a distraction from from self castigation in so many cases- if we use it as a pointer to The Son who removed all of our need for "self judgments". Truth is truth- If Jesus did not even CONDEMN (accuse OR JUDGE the adultress as guilty- we need to understand that though we disobeyed- HE KNEW THE CURE BEFORE WE MADE OURSELVES SICK. Conclusion? Senseless self judging is a "greater sin" (if such a thing exists ) than divorce. REPENT of being your own JUDGE and see what Jesus says about ya then.
Buck up there trooper.
Just tuck yer shirt back in, adjust yer helmet and next time DUCK when someone hollers "INCOMING!!!!!" Yer still gunna get dusty- but it won't hurt near as bad. Oh- and dust off yer sammich before ya try ta eat it.

If I am add-
when we look inside and "know" ourselves and our past-
often times it's not the deed or the word that had it's toll on us-
it's the simple MEMORY of those things which plays on our sense of "judging" ourselves so harshly.
If we jump into that "gee I was so silly back then" mode, it becomes ever so much easier to fall into or feel a self imposed "conviction" that then leads deeper into "I wish I hadn't" or "I wish I could change that" which in turn CAN (but not always does ) lead into harsher thoughts of "WHY DID I DO THAT"...
"Sin" IS NOT WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT IT IS. What we have been TAUGHT plays the role of DISTRACTION from what CHRIST TAUGHT. When we begin to understand that what we have been TAUGHT SIN IS- has almost NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT JESUS TAUGHT- we begin to understand the depth of DEPRAVITY the "christian religion" has sunk to. Rather than FREEDOM as Christ taught (within context of His JOB ) - we have been loaded down and SHACKLED TO SINS AND FALSE DOCTRINES THAT PRODUCE SINS WHERE SIN DOES NOT EVEN EXIST.
Jesus came to teach us ONE SINGLE SIMPLE THING TO DO- that if we would DO IT- would remove us from the ENVIRONMENT where sin can exist and place us into God's own special place of SERVICE AND PROTECTION directly to Him and BY HIM. If we were under the command and the lead of Christ- THERE COULD BE NO SINS LEFT TO COMMIT since our entire life would be perfectly led by a perfect teacher who was sent to proclaim a perfect simple easy and light job to do. What we have been TAUGHT is the GOSPEL- has next to nothing to DO with what Jesus was sent to teach. We have been led to believe we muct jump through all sorts of hoops and that no matter WHAT we do we are guna FAIL AND SIN and have been taught that NO ONE CAN BE PERFECT EVEN IF JESUS SAID WE COULD BE.
Hence, our time is spent trying constantly to "do better" and "become more like Jesus" when at the same time- WE HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE.
I've said it tons of times- the religion itself TEACHES US THAT WE CAN NOT SUCCEED BECAUSE WE ALL SIN AND CAN'T STOP. So since we all believe THAT- we have been told we must FOCUS ON SIN- NOT ON WHAT JESUS TAUGHT. We "fight" sin and we "WAR" against EVIL and we beat hell out of ourselves and others BUT WE NEVER BELIEVE WHAT JESUS TAUGHT deeply enough to OVERCOME THE FALSE AND DEADLY RELIGION THAT TELLS US WE CAN NOT PERFECTLY OBEY JESUS- EVEN IF OBEDIENCE IS EASY AND LIGHT.
The Gospel is NOT what we have been told it is. What we have been taught- KEEPS US FROM OBEDIENCE and DELAYS UNDERSTANDING until finally we DIE and then it's TOO LATE TO FOLLOW WHAT CHRIST TAUGHT.
ONE SINGLE GOSPEL. ONE SINGLE MESSAGE. ONE SINGLE JOB. ONE DEFINITION OF SALVATION. ONE CHRIST. ONE MIND. ONE MINDSET. ONE HEAVEN. ONE PERFECTION. IF WE ALL WERE LIKE CHRIST THE WAY WE SAY WE WANNA BE- THERE WOULD BE NO SIN-
SO ask yerself... what's holding us back? Think about it.... deeply.
