The speaker is Michael Oh, the founder of Christ Bible Institute Japan. He is of Korean heritage but grew up in America. I found a video (plus transcript) that explains more fully his animosity toward Japan, and the process of forgiveness he underwent. The video is of a talk he gave on night 5 of the Urbana missions conference in 2009. The animosity ...

This is not that hard of a question to answer, but before properly doing so we must correct the English translation of Jesus' words. In the English we are told that Jesus stated to "repent", but the English word repent is mainly to feel sorry for ones actions, while the word Jesus used, means: "to exercise the mind" "accompanying" (Reference is the ...

There is a very beautiful answer in the book of Ezekiel: KJV Ezekiel 18:- 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21 But if the ...

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Someone above mentioned backsliding but I disagree with that because there are biblical precedents when backsliders were forgiven, Peter being a prime example. It is stated in the Bible that "though righteous fall seven times, they rise again..." Proverbs 24:16 Also sinning unto death (one getting to die with unrepented ...

Not sure I understand. If you are asking if a person is saying "Lord forgive me for what I'm about to do", I doubt that there is any biblical assurance for that. Similarly, if you are saying "I know my sins are too tempting for You to overcome Lord" then you probably don't have sincere faith. But if you are saying "I keep coming to you sincerely night ...

Yes, the bible says that some sins are not forgiven. There are three sins that I know of: the Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31), which many scholars simply consider to be a lack of saving faith in Jesus; refusing to forgive, or not valuing the forgiveness offered to you freely (Matthew 6:15); and, "backsliding" (Hebrews 6:6), which is again, ...

There are many instances where Evil persons are forgiven. The important thing is not to confess, but to sincerely confess. Psalm 51:17 "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise" So, if Hitler was to ask for fogiveness with a contrite heart and a broken spirit he would be forgiven. Seeing how ...

I believe Sarah's response mirrors that of Abraham's in Genesis 17, when he heard this news for the first time. When Sarah laughs, the Lord asks Abraham why did Sarah laugh, saying "Can I really have a baby when I'm old?" This was essentially the same thought that had occurred to Abraham hearing it for the first time. I believe the Lord was asking Abraham ...

All these murderers have to do is ask for forgiveness and they will go to heaven is something I can't accept. Someone like Hitler is often raised as an iconic representative of evil. However, what is often not recognized is that Satan is the guy running the world (for now and insofar as he is allowed by God). If someone had killed Hitler, there were ...

The word sacrifice must be addressed. I see here that the perceived definition of sacrifice is being seen as a “blood sacrifice”. That is a shallow realization of what sacrifice is in light of how sacrifices are portrayed in common use in the Old Testament. Many sacrifices had nothing to do with blood. If we understand that sacrifice is a self-offering of ...

Genesis 2: 15-24 and Genesis 3: 1-24 tells the story of our beginning; And simply stated: The woman snared by the dazzling of jewels which was Satan's appearance and her child like-mind could not properly understand, the words she heard; She taking it to her husband and by his own desire accepted the words of the fallen immortal son, Satan, he created to ...
