    Does the grace of God cover sin or the sinner? Must the sinner be repented to obtain grace? I am thinking of a situation where a sinner walks away from a car accident  without a scratch. from the condition of the wreck, nobody should have survived it. Think of a sinner who is driving a car and flies past the front seat passenger through the window. That person sustain no injuries.Did the individual experience grace or luck? In case you are wondering, the person in both situations is still a sinner!

      Yes, we are all sinners, yet saved by God's unfailing grace. Grace covers all, the sin and the sinner. The love of God is not an excuse nor a red light to sin. As for the hypothetical situations you noted, luck has nothing to do with it. The one who is touched by grace carries the responsibility to continue to walk in the light of a loving God's grace and mercy, despite the difficult circumstances.

      aoiffe379,

      Sin is the remaining action/reaction of choice in humans.
      Free will is Grace. That is the difference.
      People squawk about faith, but faith is the action of jumping without choosing. It is knowing there is no choice only free will. If you have to choose good or bad, you are caught in sin or consciousness.

      When you do, your body & mind will be in shock at first. The 'feeling' in your gut like cool water is your spirit doing. After a while, that energy is seen in your body and eventual consumes you, encases you in grace.

      Grace covers everything, surrounds everything and is everything -if that makes sense- just as very air around encases you.

      Both the believer and non would have you question both sides or dispute their case. Neither of which is valuable to you...

      To be in grace, just step out of the boat, without question.
      No matter what, that power will keep you safe, uphold you and never let you fall into any sin.

    Sinning would be to love, obey and worship someone who hates others and wishes to do great harm to them.

    Like a god, for example.

    Grace is not a license to sin. Grace does not mean it is ok to sin, it is a freedom from the 'penalty' of sin, through acceptance of what Christ has already done. 

    Grace is defined as, “favour, kindness and mercy.” The biblical definition is, “divine mercy and forgiveness.” Notice that there is nothing mentioned about grace being a ‘licence’ to disobey God’s law. So then, to be “under grace” simply means to be under God’s divine mercy and forgiveness as a result of sincere repentance and resolve to obey God.

    Consider the police officer who pulls over a speeding vehicle. As he approaches the vehicle and asks to see the drivers licence, he quickly notices that the driver is a well-known celebrity and one of whom he is a huge fan. He tells the driver that because he is a fan he cannot give him a ticket and decides to let the celebrity off with just a warning. This is grace. Now then, in this example would it be acceptable for the driver of the vehicle to push the pedal to the floor and burn some rubber as he pulls away, to continue speeding down the road?

    The above example is qualified by the Bible in the book of John, chapter 8, verses 10-11 where Jesus confronted the woman caught in adultery…

    “When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”

    Notice Jesus did not say, “Ok, you may now go and continue in your sin,” but rather, “go, and sin no more.”

    I hope this helps wink  God-bless!

    Grace is really gods permission to continue forward in the things of god. We know how god works, he never lets anyone jump grades nor does he ever let people take on more than they are able to handle. God moves us along in His will according to our degree of success in what He has given us already. Quick example: if we handle money well we may come up with a winning lottery ticket.
    God wants to bless us all abundantly (talking to the saved christian here) but He needs that we try and try again until we get it right before we move on to the next thing.

    Therefore aside from the normal and regular connotations with the grace of god, Gods grace is also His permission to attain more in god.

      Yet, in reality, people who win lotteries often have no clue how to handle money. That's why they buy lottery tickets. smile

    Does grace cover euthanasia for a terminally patient who is in constant pain and finds no relief from the medication provided daily? Does it cover saying yes to pull tubes on brain dead individuals?Samson pulled down a whole temple killing people[homicide] and himself[suicide]. Did he repent before or after this incident? I am just wondering.
