I Believe In God But I Committed a Mortal Sin

I believe in God really, because several times I make a prayer request he always grant it. Like when I asked if the guy that I liked so much would hopefully fall in love with me though it's really quite impossible because he's very shy and very reserve person. God really granted my request in which I was really speechless and thankful. When, I was in difficulty in getting a job, I almost give up and prayed if only He would give me a job that would satisfy me and He did it again. And another job granted, my ultimate dream job. So, that's why I believe in God so much that He exist, He's my only confidant if I have problem that I couldn't even share to my close friends, I know He is listening to me somewhere. But I just feel ashamed of Him because I committed a mortal sin, I am having a relationship with a married man and had recent abortion. Both are list of the 10 commandments which are original sin. I don't know if God will forgive me for what I've done, but I do sincerely pray and ask forgiveness everyday. If humans can't forgive, He is the only One who can forgive just like Mary Magdalene.

King David in the Bible committed adultery and then committed murder to cover it up. And he is called a man after God's own heart. There is nothing you can do that cannot be forgiven. :)

Thank you for everyone's comforting words here. I needed them now.

Hi Frustratedlady. I know it's a long time since the last post so you may not get to read this at all, but after reading your heart I just want to affirm what the Bible says about your forgiveness. To live in the good of it you just have to believe it.<br />
<br />
Firstly GOD IS LOVE and 1 Corinthians 13:5 it tells us:<br />
"love does not keep a record of evil" (therefore God does not hold a record of your evil)<br />
<br />
Romans 4:25 tell us that Jesus was raised…<br />
…" 'because' [literal Greek meaning] of our being declared righteous"<br />
(God now declares you and the world 'righteous' and this is evidenced through him raising Jesus from the dead.)<br />
<br />
Rom 5:18<br />
"It follows then that just as the result of a single transgression, condemnation extends to the whole race, so also the result of a single decree of righteousness is life-giving acquittal which extends to the whole race." (that includes you - acquitted!)<br />
<br />
2 Corinthians 5:19<br />
"God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their offenses"<br />
(because of what Jesus did God doesn't hold you guilty!)<br />
<br />
There are many more references, but basically the Bible teaches our forgiveness doesn't depend on what we have or haven't done or whether we've sinned or lived a good life, It depends on what Jesus has done on our behalf. God now see us 'In Christ' which means that all the righteousness of Jesus is now accredited to our account. We are forgiven and have access to God ba<x>sed solely on He has done.<br />
<br />
It's his unconditional love and grace that leads us to repentance from our sins but our repentance isn't a condition to our forgiveness - that's purely a gift.

Thank you very much! That gave me a feeling of relief. I am so teary eyed now. I did a confession of my sins before God before my marriage. just got married in 2012.

frustratedlady, If you're a Christian or a Catholic then you shouldn't feel guilty... the 10commandment is of the Old testament and that's the reason why when Jesus came into the world, He said "I did not come here to destroy the law, I came here to fulfill the law" and he became the new law, the new testament. He died for your sin so repent and your forgiven.

Thank you for giving me this upliftment and relief

Thanks you so much for sharing your comments.

Thanks you so much for sharing your comments.

I don't know about you, but sometimes we have to experience certain things to realize we really don't want them in our lives. Except for murder, I've committed just about every sin there is. I am not proud of this, but when I see how I behave now as opposed to then, I have made quite a little progress. As far as the married thing, you need to get out of that. As far as the abortion, what is done is done.<br />
<br />
"You can stir filth this way, or you can stir it that way. It's still just filth. If you've done something bad or wrong, do something good to balance it."<br />
<br />
I don't remember where I read that, but it reminds me that sin never goes away, but the future is WIDE open.<br />
<br />
Try not to lose heart.

Thank you. I finally got out of that relationship of a married man. I confessed before God in the church before i got married. I will keep these secret unto my grave bec it is between me and God, no man has the right to judge me except HIM above. No one in this world is sin free.

There is ONE unforgivable sin. <br />
<br />
Other than that, He will see your repentant heart and forgive. IF you are truly asking for forgiveness. Asking for it and continuing won't cut it - so just because you asked doesn't mean it happened. You have to repent first.<br />
<br />
Now, don't get God's word mixed up in man-made religion. Mary was a special person, but that's all. Leave her out of it.<br />
<br />
There are many sins listed in His word. Those 10 were specific to a group of people that needed guidance and are an example of how to live. There is nothing different from these 10 and all the others. Sinning is sinning.<br />
<br />
Remember, that God is forgiving BUT He is also just. That means that if you murder your neighbor, God will forgive you if you repent BUT he won't save you from the result/cost of your actions. You will be held to the law of the land - but He will not abandon you.<br />
<br />
Think about this: He loves you so much that he knew every hair on your head - before you were born! Through Christ (once you accept Him as your savior) you are a joint heir to the throne of God! Through Christ, you have the ability to talk directly to God himself. Jesus explained that he's the LAST priest and that we can speak with the Father through Him (a verse the Catholics ignore).<br />
<br />
He is there for you - as your confidant. BUT, He asks one thing. If you bring something to Him, you are to lay it "at the alter". That means, once you offload onto Him, consider it His to take from there and walk away. If you try to keep it He'll let you, but if you leave it there He will take it. So, if your neighbor really ticks you off and you want to terminate them, tell it to the Lord and walk away. Let him deal with the problem.<br />
<br />
Don't let the little things get you down. Have joy knowing that with Jesus as your savior, you will never die but live everlasting life.

There is no sin you can commit that God cannot forgive.

Thank you!

You know you have already been forgiven if you sincerely, whole-heartedly asked for forgivness. Don't beat yourself up.
