  1. Happy birthday Eragon!! Sorry I forgot about it.

    I am so glad to talk to you.

    I'm sorry we don't talk much but that's what makes talking to you special.

  2. Hope you have a great birthday today :cake:

  3. AscendedMaster's333, I understand your predicament. Here is my answer in as straightforward terms as I, with my lack of skill in being able to form perfectly understandable sentences, can manage: You are wondering if you need to ask God to forgive you for past sins and etc. I am thrilled to tell you that He already has! He has forgiven you for all the sins you've committed in the past, all the sins you committed today, and all the sins you will commit in the future. How can you make this free gift of forgiveness "valid" in your life? Accept His gift to you. There's no cost on your part; Jesus already paid the price for your sins, and has forgiven you for each and every one. I'm no expert, but thank God that we don't have to be experts, that we don't have to understand all the theology of things, to be able to understand that He's forgiven us. I'm reminded of the sinful woman in Luke 7: 36-50. She was no learned biblical scribe or scholar, and yet she understood what Jesus was going to do for her. He paid for each and every one of that woman's sins, even those she committed after the fact. You don't have to remember your sins for them to be forgiven. Below is a passage from the book of Acts in the Bible that clearly says how one must be saved: Read Acts 16 (29) Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. (30) And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (31) So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” According to the verses above, all you must do is believe, believe that it's all paid for, in the bank. Paul and Silas didn't say, in reply to the jailer's question, "Oh, to be saved you need to confess all the sins you've ever committed" or "To be saved you need to do 100 good works." No, they say "Believe." That's it. Now, once you believe there is a process of repentance, but that is not a listing off of sins so they'll be forgiven; repentance is a confessing of the sin, and turning away from the sin, asking God to give you strength so you do that sin no longer. If you're basing your salvation off of your own actions, you're then depending on you to save you, instead of depending on God's completed sacrifice to save you. Make sense? As for you calling your sister names those years ago, if you feel you must, ask your sister to forgive you for doing so (remember, God already has forgiven you for calling her names!). Even if she thinks it's silly, or unnecessary, make sure to tell her that it's been bothering you lately. Thanks for reading my rather unclear, sloppy explanation. I'll be praying for you, Ascended, -Era
