    What if you do something that you know is wrong in God's eyes but you do it anyway for your own gain. Can you be forgiven?

        If you ask God for forgiveness and truly repent, you will be forgiven.

        "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever, believeth in Him would not parish."   

        "I am The Way,The Truth, and The Life. No One comes to The Father except through Me."

      How would you ever know something is wrong in God's eyes?

      Face it, what you've got on your hands is a bunch of people who presume to speak for god.

      The "GOD" concept or even the consideration of "God's will"? Is unknown.

      Please try not to speak as though it's real, or even a part of reality. There is no proof of a God's will, God's word or anything else God related.

      The "GOD" concept was created by man, so as to enslave humanity, because the alternative presumed is chaos. smile

      I cannot do anything wrong in "GOD's" eyes. It doesn't exist in the first place. smile

      I imagine I do things wrong all the time. But I am at base a good person, so yes I think I should be forgiven. But I don't look through God's eyes to figure this out. For a start, which God would I choose: Brahman? Allah? There are a lot of options, you know. I'd rather trust my own conscience. I can't explain why, but I (and most of us) already know what's right and wrong, whether God is around or not

      well, if you believe in God, supposedly God is merciful and forgiving, so yeah.

        I think there is forgiveness, but there is a price to be paid. Holly smile

      You can only speak and act for yourself.  God has nothing to do with your own actions.

      It's called Free Agency.

    Well you should do things based on your own set of morals and values. But if yours are based on the Bible, and the Bible says you can be forgiven, then I guess yes you can.

    But it was selfish to do it in the first place, and for me and my set of standards, it depends on what it is whether or not forgiveness is granted.

      I agree with Colebabie - the person you need to forgive is yourself and also you need to face the consequences of what you have done and take responsibility.

    I believe we all know the answer inside.  It's not like asking forgiveness from the guy next door.  This is the One!  He knows the level of sincerity of your heart when you go to him or not.  No one can fool Him.  Is there forgiveness?  Yes, but it is dependent on your full sincerity and desire to make things right in your life.

    This is why the practice of "death bed repentance" is flawed and is not doctrinally sound.  One cannot expect the Almighty to accept your pleas from your death bed.  Change, true and sincere takes a lifetime of effort and constant correction.  To assume that total forgiveness can take place all at once is folly and belittles the divine nature of the Master.

    Back to your initial question though.  You can be forgiven but it must be sincere and true - or it will not happen.

    The whole point of gods and religion is not only to make rules to guide behavior in a society, but to provide an outlet for forgiveness.  All religions have these components in them or they fail before passing through cult phase.  The entire function of religion is to constrain that part of human nature that "sins" but to allow for the reality of that part and provide avenues for restitution and readmittance.

    So, in short, yes, your god has a path to forgiveness.  I'm certain it's in the literature that comes with your faith. Not to worry.

      You probably think you are being funny, but it isn't. It is simply sad you feel the need to be so insulting.

    Ye also reap what you sow. Has nothing to do with Karma. And we are spared by Jesus when he died on the cross. We are forgiven if we are sincere.
