PAID IN FULL! Really? Just about every preacher will say, “IF you fail to confess your sins (1 Jn. 1:8-9), you will certainly be chastised (Heb. 12:6) over your disobedience to divine sovereignty and consequently run the risk of being killed by God prematurely (1 Jn. 5:16) for shaming His Holy name!”
This may make sense to the reformed mind, but it’s repugnant to sound doctrine (1 Tim. 1:10, Tit. 1:9). The Bible never says God will kill His children early as a way of discipline if they continue in sin. This is pure myth. Why is it God never wiped Paul off the face of the earth who they like to call the “Chief of Sinners?” (Which Paul was talking about his FORMER life, not as a follower of Christ!)
If all your FUTURE sins are really “Paid for in advance” by the sacrifice of Christ and guarantees you eternal salvation regardless how you live afterwards, then confession of ongoing sin is really purposeless since God is now morally blind to any future sins you may commit!
For that matter, how could God possibly KILL (discipline) you over sins that are ALREADY under the blood? If your sins were “paid for” by provision of Calvary, then how can your sins be RECHARGED against you again?
It is absurd that God PUNISHES what God has ALREADY forgiven, yet this is what is taught on a daily basis in the majority of churches today.
