A friend of my wife comes from a Christian home with both her mother and sister being ministers. This lady claims she has been saved and says she has accepted Jesus as her personal savior. However, her lifestyle does not live up to her being a good Christian. She has been divorced for about one year and since that time has had sex with numerous men often after their first date.
She recently visited us and the discussion got around to her personal life. She took the position that her "being saved" has wiped out all her past and her future sins and that she can continue to lead the life she is living with immunity. It's sort of like getting a perpetual get out of jail card.
I cited to her two verses. The first was in Acts 3:19: "Repent then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out...." I then questioned if she truly repented if she willingly commits the same sin over and over again. The second section is contained in John Chapter 8 where Jesus in verse 11 tells the woman to "Go now and leave your life of sin."
What do you folks think about persons such as this lady who claim to be Christians and say they are saved but continue to lead a life of sin and how would you answer them?
