Can anyone just get over the sin?

    Why is it that so many often times we find it so easy to cast hatred on someone Else's act of sin; however when we are called out on our act of sin we get bitter and angry, shouting it is not fair.

    Is their anyone out here that can help me understand this a little better??

      Our own sin is like the back side of our own knee caps.  It is much easier for me to see yours than mine!!!


         I have good excuses and alibis for mine.   I assume that everyone else doesn't ?????

        I love your analogy; but yet it is so easily said and ever so hard to admit while we are in the midst of practicing within that kind of mindset .

      Well it's ok if I do it!  lol  I guess maybe we can see the reason why we may do something but not some one else.  It really doesn't matter tho, in James 2 verse 10 it says  "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."
      I know why I did it, but why did you do it?  Did you have as good a reason as I did?  lol

      Sounds like you have an ego or pride problem. hmm You get called out on something and you think it's not fair. Why? (on a side note- try to not talk for others)
      Yeah, get over yourself and be more conscience and conscious about your actions. Your religious view has you on the path of righteousness and the truth of the matter is that you are not any better than anyone else, which is what "righteousness" is all about. You suffer from a superiority complex, yet don't see it. No wonder. hmm

      Sounds like the thinkings and justifications that comes from most christians.

      I think the word you're looking for here is "Hypocrisy"

      As long as you see sin in another you will see Sin in yourself....

      Quit looking for sin in others and then you would be free from sin's bondage.

      your love for christianity is responsible for your bongage.

      Pointing out another's sins is usually about the insecurity the person feels about his/her own position with God, and therefore, detracts momentarily from the gravity of their own shortcomings.

      The more secure a person is knowing that he/she is okay the way they are, the less they will need to point out other's flaws and make public outcry. Being secure with one's self is about being at peace. When there is peace there is no need to harm self or others.

    As I've said many times in the past, don't focus on what others do. Self improvement is the only way forward.

      Sundaymomentsposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Yes self improvement is the only way we can be a successor however when it is the tool of others to hold against you every wrong that they know you have done; how then do you move forward??

        Can you get away from the people who are doing this?  Maybe to move forward we have to move away from people who are holding us down.  God knows what is in our hearts.  If we have accepted Jesus then our past sins have been washed away.  They are gone!

          The sad thing is they live next door; plus they are here on HP. Everywhere I am turning around they are posting negative things (Some of the things are true, I Made some mistakes) however they are also adding seasoning to their story making me look like a monster. The ones that live next door to me are the ones who started all the mess and now that they have been figured as the liars they will not step up to the plate and pubic-ally tell the truth; "That they too made some mistakes. {IT seems to me they have forgotten, To BE Human Is To Be Of Error}

            There have been times that I have been accused of something I wasn't guilty of.  I figure I know the truth, the Lord knows the truth, any one who knows me, knows the truth.  No one else matters.  If I am guilty, I will admit it, apologize and move on.  If I am not guilty I ask the Lord to forgive the one who is lieing and help them to turn from their lies.  We can't hold on to bad feelings, we have to let them go.  If you can't talk the problem out with them,  then take it to the Lord in prayer, leave it  there and don't pick it back up..  None of us are perfect and we won't be as long as we are living here on earth.  So, none of us can throw stones at another.  Just strive to be the best you can be, and every one around you will see.  Don't hold on to bad feelings, it will fester and infect more of your life.

                Thank you for allowing me to help.  We all need friends some times to help us along the way.  Life here can be hard some times and Satan will throw stumbling blocks in our path.  The Lord works thru mysterious ways, some times it is thru new friends..  Hold on to your faith.
                God Bless you.

            It kind of depends on what your mistakes are. if they are criminal, you might want to contact yor realator. If they are just mistakes that you have gotten past, then just say "yea, i made that mistake, so the F what?...I can get over it, why cant you"

    Sorry i am unfamiliar with this type of christianity.
    When i feel enticed to sin, i call upon the father immediately while the temptation is upon me. If it hurts, oh well.
    You see i choose to know god exists. I am not playing some game of "in" one day, "out" the next. I know what to do and i know what's wrong, against god and god only do i sin if i sin.
         Through discipline i make myself rigid in the things of god: i avoid the very appearance of evil. I praise god when i don't feel like it. I speak in tongues to edify myself. I close my eyes and form prayers in my head, long lengthy prayers. I tell god i love God.
    I pick up my cross daily thus symbolically and literally crucifying my self against those things i would do (in the flesh) but i do them not. This is presenting myself as a living sacrifice, wholly pleasing unto god.

    This is what christianity is all about.

      Very well said brotheryochanan but what I am saying is so many people want to judge another person based on our acts of sin is not God the final Judge and not man?
