I would like to comment on Jared Hanta's June 22 letter.
He seems to think that when one accepts Jesus as lord and savior — really accepts him, not just a CYA act — that all sins past, present and future are covered. Really? Isn't that a rather cavalier attitude?
"If I profess Christ as my Savior I get a future get out of jail free card" without confessing current sins and repenting?
I'm sure Jesus expects our repentance, lifestyle and attitude change when we accept Him and His teachings. Just past sins are covered; we must continually ask forgiveness when we sin, and we will undoubtedly sin daily and need forgiveness.
You can't just say OK, I have accepted Jesus, now I can do what I want. It doesn't work that way. There will be no get out of jail free cards before the judgment seat.
