Seventy Times Seven and God
I cannot make myself quit sinning. I am ernestly sorry after I sin, and I am sincere when I ask for forgivness, help and guidance from the Lord. I know that without his help I am powerless to overcome any of the worlds temptations. If I know all this, and I really do believe it, then how come I can't do it?
The Lord is not pleased with me, and I am starting to worry about my salvation. A true Christian shouldn't ever worry about that, right? I know Jesus said to forgive seventy times seven, but does that apply to doing the same thing over and over, knowing better the whole time? I don't want to be a "weekend Christian," and I don't believe that you can live in sin and have Christ Jesus living in your heart. I feel that Romans 7:14-25 pertains to me, but I don't understand it. Will you explain this to me?
