    why we are punished for our sin ?

    In our religious books its written that nothing can happen without the will & wish of GOD...Its written both in GITA and BIBLE & KURAN that without the wish of GOD even a leaf can't fall...that means everything that happens on this earth is done by GOD...which means even the bad things we do is only done because GOd wants us to do that..than why is that called SIN ?
    Than why we are punished for that ?
    After all without GOD wish nothing happens..which means we are fully controlled by GOD ?

    when God created us he gave us what is called will power and we have the choice to choose between right or wrong { Deu 30:19  I call Heaven and earth to record today against you. I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, choose life, so that both you and your seed may live,} so we have the power to choose. the bible also confirms this in the old test. { Gen 11:6  And Jehovah said, Behold! The people is one and they all have one language. And this they begin to do. And now nothing which they have imagined to do will be restrained from them.

    No punishment for the sons of God

    De:30:19: I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

    2Pe:2:9: The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    Take your pick

    You have got to be kidding!  Did you mean to say "no punishment for the sons of   G-d"?  I'm replying to Hoowantstono first.

    We humans were given the power of choice remember?  The Deuteronomy verse should have been quoted completely.  Deuteronomy 30:15-20  " See, I have placed before you today the life and the good, and the death and the evil, that which I command you today, to love Adonai, your G-d, to walk in his ways, to observe His commandments, His decrees, and His ordinances; then you will live and you will multiply, and Adonai, your G-d will bless you in the Land to which you come, to possess it.  But if your heart will stray and you will not listen, and you are led astray, and you prostrate yourself to strange gods and serve them, I tell you today you will surely be lost; you will not lengthen your days upon the Land that you cross the Jordan to come there, to possess it..  I call heaven and earth today to bear witness against you:  I have placed life and death before you, blessing  and curse; and you shall choose life, so that you will live, you and your offspring- to love Adonai, your    G-d, to listen to His voice and to cleave to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days, to dwell upon the land that Adonai swore to your forefathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."
      There are several other places within the "Five Books of Moses" where you can find this.  Choose life so that you may live.  I understand that reconcilliation between free will and   G-d's omniciense are difficult to reconcile.  I have and will continue to write about this topic, but for now I will try to simplify it for you.  G-d does know all which can happen, because for every decision we make, the consequences will be different.  G-d sees all of the potential consequences simultaneously.  Your destiny on earth will be made available to you time and again if need be.  If you always choose not to follow your destiny, you will have another opportunity to do so when you are reincarnated. 
    Most importantly, remember, all of our choices, whether of inaction, or action have consequences.  I hope this helps.

    Spiritually Yours,
    Laura Weakley

    GOD .. unfortunately fortunate and fortunately unfortunate ... do you ever understand the two terms and if so not only you are above intelligent also your mind is tough to deal.  Liketh GOD fearing the unfear and unfearing the fear .. one who realise say the good one who never knows say bad.  What is sin? and who is God? you are the one doing the sin you are the one in you is God do never do harm to others do ever do good to others the word sin is never there.

    When a a Compact disc contain many things in bits when unfolding/reading using the particular language you enjoy the song or whatever in it.  A computer which is made of materials never live or have life functioning in operating why not you believe that you too get operated by some one unknown.  The thing the computer never complain that is a slave,  you too never complain you are a slave to the one controlling you. 

    When we have the power of thinking, feelings are certainly there the one who controls us gave too much of freedom which we never give to others speakling truly to other living beings.... hope the words now clear fortunately unfortunate and unfortunately fortunate where and when.  There is no sin when you think so there is sin when you think so.  Do ever good and do ever live with others..and that is what we have to do.

    We are punished by our sins, but we are also punished for our sins. We are punished for our sins becasue we are the enemies of God. We have defied his laws, we call ourselves "good" and God "evil." Not only do we know what is right, we won't do it. Furthermore, we create standards of right, but do not uphold those. We expect others not to lie to us, yet we lie. We don't treat others the way we demand they treat us.

    Furthermore, God has provided an escape from the punishment we deserve, but we reject it. We blame God for the mess of the world and reject his method of salvation.

    That's just some of the reasons (for starters).

    God does not want us to sin.  This is our choice. We have a choice of whether to do the right thing or the wrong thing. If we choose the right then we are rewarded.  If we choose the wrong thing then we have sinned and thus we are punished,. for this sin.  t was never God's wil for us to sin.  It is our will to sin.

    "That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned." Romans 5:12

    There is nothing as punishment or impunity for sins.  This is all how we think and believe.
