will God forgive me if I already had sex but I want to start fresh and get a purity ring and commit my self to God and also get baptized?
Of course God will forgive you! It says in His word that "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." This is a beautiful promise.
Think about Paul from the bible, he considered himself the worst of sinners. Before he got saved he went around killing Christians and opposed Jesus in every way imaginable, yet God still forgave him and used him in mighty ways!
Another thing to remember is that God loves you. When you sin against Him, He doesn't want to smite you with a lightning bolt. Instead holds His arms open towards you, waiting for you to come back to him. Have you read the parable of the Prodigal Son, found in Luke 15:11-32? Read it! His father accepted him back as a Son even after what his son had done. This is why: "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1).
2 Corinthians 12:9 says, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." In other words, there is nothing you can do that God can not forgive. But you first need to admit that you've done wrong, and confess what you've done to Him. It's also important to remember that "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is life in Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:23)" God being perfectly just must punish sin. But because God loves us He sent His son to die in our place so that we wouldn't have to pay the penalty! He has opened the door to life, so that we need not fear death and hell. But just like any other gift, we can not have it until we've accepted it. God does not give it to us because we deserve it, or because we get baptized, or because we get a purity ring, but because He loves us, and He loves you more than you can imagine. Remember, He knew about you before you were even in your mother womb.
God loves you no matter what you've done, if you turn to Him, he will welcome you with open arms. If you have not turned your heart to Christ yet, I strongly urge you to do so and talk to a pastor at a bible believing church (baptist, pentecostal, Nazarene are some great examples).
I am praying for you, may God use you in mighty ways for His glory and kingdom!!
Yes, god will forgive you. You just have to do lots of repenting and not do it again. Tell him you're deepily sorry. You need to read the scriptures and if you want a purity ring and be baptized, you'll have to repent first. We all make mistakes in life and god knows we're not perfect. I know the feelings of guilt. I've been there done that. I do lots of repenting daily for any sin I've comitted and he forgives me. I might do some things I feel I wouldn't be qualified fore such as wanting to go back to the Temple. I repent so I could go back to the Temple again. Read your bible and try not to think about sex again until you find the right partner and someone you can marry. Once you repent of this sin, then you can get your purity ring and get baptized.
Humility is the first step. Pride always goes before the fall! And you have that humbleness to offer up yourself to God to forgive you, if you truly desire to repent and turn away from ANY sexual relations before marriage. God will always forgive if you know Christ's virgin birth, His crucifiction, died, and on the third day arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will come again in glory. That He is fully man AND fully God, that His Holy Spirit is the One who gives you guidance. Yes, He will restore your virginity, your sins will be forgiven and remembered no more, and you can walk in righteousness. Your body is a Holy temple of the Lord's, keep it that way and you will be blessed beyond your imagination!
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; " Romans 3: 23
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: John 10:27 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. John 10:28 My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand. "John 10:29
You made a mistake and confessed it, it appears to me that you've repented, but I dont see your heart.If you are sincere, GOD will forgive you and if you're already a Christian you don't need to be rebaptized.
All you have to do is ask then recieve. God loves you more than you can even begin to imagine. Think of it also this way- knowing everything you were going to say, think, and DO, Jesus still called you into realtionship with Him. Believe me, you are no surprise to God, and He still loves you and has an amazing future to bring you hope and pure, overflowing Joy. So, do what God has put on your heart to do- get baptized, a purity ring , and commit your life to Jesus. Also see some products from Joyce Meyer (world preacher), she helps me with my walk with God. One more thing- WELCOME TO THE FAMILY(of believers)
Well I don't believe sex is a sin. Its okay between 2 consenting mature people. We are sexual creatures. What dose a ring prove? There is a time and place for sex but don't worry about some God condemning you for something natural when he can't even prove his existence.
If you believe God created us than he created us with sexual urges and an interest in sex. It isn't the devil.
I think it should wait to an age of mental and physical maturity and understanding simply for to health of the person. Not for "religious" reasons
Yes, he will forgive you. And good for you wanting to make a fresh start! There are some good books out there to help you.
"And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets to Sexual Purity" by Dannah Gresh I especially liked this one, and "Lies Young Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Dannah Gresh Based on surveys of over 1000 teens. They have a neat website with blogs about different topics, too. www.liesyoungwomenbelieve.com
Best Wishes to you and may God Bless You.
Forgive yourself, or don't. Live by your own moral code.
Sex has nothing to do with God, you've just been taught that so you WON'T HAVE SEX.
Almost everyone has sex before marriage and it is pretty fun!
Again, don't feel guilty because of religious pressure. But be smart, have sex with people you love so you don't get hurt.
Life is too short to feel guilt over something that has NOTHING to do with morals. It really doesn't.
Absolutely... God will forgive you.
And Praise God that you care enough to desire to change.
This is delightful in Gods eyes, as his desire is for us to repent.
Repent... means to have a change of mind.
To turn away from.
And this is exactly what you are doing.
The angels in heaven rejoice.
God be with you.
If you believe in the bible - then yes God will forgive you. He forgives anything (murder, rape, sex, beastiality, pedophiles, racist, etc) as long as they ask for forgiveness before they die.
Messed up if you think about it though. That is one of the reason's I'm an atheist.
If you never ever do it again and live according to the rules...then yeah,sure.If you're really,truly sorry and will avoid fornication in the future--depends on your religion tho.
YES:) as he sent his son to die for our sins no matter what the re:) he always welcome & opens his arms wide for his beloved children as it is what he seeks for.:) GOD BLESS!!
he will forgive you if you are truly sowi and if it really comes from the heart but if you just want to be sorry and pretend your sorry then theres no point he wont forgive u
Yes He Will!!! :) God forgives you for anything and everything. And once you have asked for forgiveness.. He puts it behind him and doesnt think about it again
If there are any gods out there, they would be fools to create you as a sexual being and then expect you to abstain. Sex isn't a sin.
umm, yes. god will forgive you for anything as long as you are truely sorry and really make an effort not to commit that sin again.
He is a forgiving God so yes he will forgive...I bet he's proud of you too for wanting to make a fresh start...
Tenicaly,sex is a sin. It's a form of adultury. But yes he will 4give u
yes he will
