Why Do Christians Pray For Forgiveness? What Do I Do About My Sin

Our power against Satan is our Lord Jesus Christ. Confess to Him that you have no strength and that you need Him every second, every minute, every hour, every day.

Hi Westboro,

I would like to know why Christians pray for forgiveness even though they are already forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ when he died on the cross and rose again. Was this moment in time, during the dispensation of Christ, not the penultimate moment of forgiveness and salvation, yet many Christians nowadays pray for forgiveness like they haven’t got it. Please can you sort of give me a clearer insight into this issue.

On a personal note, I sin every day; some sins private, some sins in public. Unfortunately, I can’t do enough repenting and it’s like a vicious circle which I am caught up in and which I cannot escape. I don’t think I am saved to be honest, though it hurts to admit it. My life is not an example of Christian piety and holiness. I am full of mischievousness and confusion.

Please can you give me some insight into my current situation.

I trust you and I need you to help me with this.



Dear fellow human –

I, too, am flesh; do not put any trust in me. Trust only in God.

The Lord Jesus Christ gave us a blue print on how to pray.

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.” (Matthew 6:9-18)

Many good words of instruction. That prayer is not rote — it’s a living, breathing pattern to follow. Asking for forgiveness is a reminder to keep us ever humble before the Lord our God.

We all sin – almost as we breath. Satan is ever on the hunt to whisper in our ears the mischief that he knows is the sin that so easily besets us. He has had more time then we can comprehend to hone his skill. Our power against Satan is our Lord Jesus Christ. Confess to Him that you have no strength and that you need Him every second, every minute, every hour, every day. If you are continually framing your prayers, you are not going to be turning aside to mischief. I don’t find any other successful path. I don’t want any other path. I know I need to be forgiven for my crimes against my God! I never escape the knowledge that I have nothing except what my God has kindly given me and I owe it all to Him and He owns me lock, stock and barrel! Oh, how marvelous! Oh, how wonderful! I got nothing, so knowing that, I don’t have to pretend I do.

Thank you for asking.

I’m sorry for your distress.

Too Late To Rewrite Jewish History – But Are You One Of The 144,000?

Are You One Of The 144,000?

Thank you for writing, Stuart.

Based on the references you use and the angry energy you pour into defending the Jewish race against the unmovable reality that they killed the Messiah, we presume you are yourself one of the Children of Israel. That is good, because we have a strong desire to preach to that sad and doomed lot since we know that very soon now 144,000 of your seed will be miraculously called forth to grace and repentance and that thrills our very souls!

Your exercised venom aside, we know very well that your ancestor Saul of Tarsus likewise despised the preaching of Christ and even brought upon those early churches a horrible and institutionalized wasting (Galatians 1:13), as emissary for the Jews. Paul repented, of course, by the grace of God. Those other Jews, however, were basking in the hateful glow of that grievous sin of delivering Christ to be slain by Pilate’s troops. Christ said plainly to Pilate: “Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.” (John 19:7) The “he” in that declaration was your ancestor the Jew! So, whether you accept responsibility for that sin of your people or not, we have here that very Christ you mischievously say was a “learned man” declaring that your race of people “hath the greater sin” in the act of sending Him to His death!

But Scripture answers your lie yet more. When the Roman official Pilate found that he was only going to have a massive revolt on his hands if he did not kill the innocent Christ, he expressly said: “I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.” (Matthew 27:24). The Roman did not want or accept the responsibility for the death of Christ on him or his soldiers. The Roman knew him as innocent, and declared him so. Nevertheless, like the Jews of this generation defy and refuse to submit to the law on the books of this nation about their violent hatred of Christ and His Word and His prophets, your ancestors refused to submit to Pilate’s declaration of Christ’s innocence. What then did your ancestors say? ” Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.” (Matthew 27:25).

It’s too late to rewrite history, angry friend. Like the holocaust deniers, you wish to obfuscate the plain evidence of the crime. You wish to remove the stain of that horrific, earth-shattering, eternally-shameful act by shifting blame to those over which your ancestors wielded malicious influence and forced the hand to the killing of the Messiah! You cannot do that. You can fool the masses who equally hate Christ, but you cannot fools His servants. Far more importantly, you cannot fool God!

That leads us to the final, and certainly the most terrifying reality about the consequences that will come upon the Jewish people for the crime of slaying Jesus the Christ. Your prophets all saw what was coming — both your collective insanity in the act, and the heart-wrenching punishment. Daniel the Prophet was so horrified at the vision of what was coming that he fainted. We say, in our faithful attempts to instruct our Jewish brothers and sisters, that when the promised punishment comes you will consider the holocaust horrors to be a mere pinky-finger-out tea party. While the 144,000 redeemed of your seed will be graciously preserved from harm, the remainder will be slaughtered without a hint of mercy. Whatever the number of living Jews there are when that day comes, all that will remain will be 144,000. So relatively small a number, the prophet Amos said “As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.” (Amos 3:12)

We pray, Lord willing, that you will be one of those to whom the Lord pours out “the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.” (Zechariah 12:10) You all certainly need to be sorry for that slaughter of Christ, your only and soon to come Messiah. But that repentance will only be given to the 144,000. If you are one of those, we will love you and pour out that brotherly love that we pour out upon all those with whom we hope to spend eternity in service to God. If not, we will continue to show you that charity that we pour out upon all other humans who inhabit this generation with us — chiefly by daily offering up the Bread of Life and the Fountains of Living Waters on your mean and hateful streets.

In true love, your friends at WBC

To Whom It may Concern:

Today i saw a video of how your congregation demonstrated at Yeshiva University in Washington Heights, New York. It disgusted me.

I was brought up to respect the beliefs of others, to honor others however your congregation defeats all of that. You preach nothing but hate and prejudice. And you claim to be a people of God? I beg to differ. You are a people of Satan, bigoted, prejudiced, intolerant, violent. God and Jesus were peaceful. Jesus preached love, tolerance, non-violence and yet you ………JUST THE OPPOSITE.

Jews, in case you did not know, did not kill Jesus. He was Jewish. He was a learned man, a teacher, a rabbi. Crucifixion was the method of the Romans, now the seat of the Catholic Church. I suggest that you read and study history. I do not ask that you love me. I do not want the love of bigoted fools but I ask for tolerance for others, respect for those who have different beliefs than you.

Just for the record, in case your history does not include this fact, it was the baptized of Europe who killed six million Jews and others.

There Are Circumstances That Justify Abortion. True or False? False.

It is estimated that over 60 million (and counting) babies have been killed in this country, and over one billion babies have been killed worldwide since the early 70s when abortion was legalized.

Dear Mr. Meyer,

This is a response to your letter wherein you attempt to make a case that murdering your unborn baby is OK if rape was involved in the situation. You also expanded your position to include “mistakes”.

If your parents ‘made a mistake,’ would you defend your parents’ decision to abort you? This is a dire situation you have constructed here regarding this hypothetical teenage girl. You have done so because either 1) you actually know a girl that needs help, or 2) it is far more likely that you are attempting to use the exceptional case to argue for the general, which, by definition, you cannot do. It is like saying: I just killed a dog to defend myself, therefore, I can preemptively kill all dogs to defend myself. The morality of the situation does not change simply because someone was raped. Rape does not justify murder. Two wrongs do not make a right. The only thing abortion does is perpetuate the violence inflicted to both one’s body, and one’s soul. Furthermore, you speak of being pro-choice, but what about the choice of the child whose brain is being scrambled, whose heartbeat is being silenced, whose life is being extinguished simply because you made ‘a mistake’ that has inconvenienced you? It strikes me as hypocritical that you would deny the most basic of human rights (life) from a child, and then cling to it yourself.

It is estimated that over 60 million (and counting) babies have been killed in this country, and over one billion babies have been killed worldwide since the early 70s when abortion was legalized.

You say to just let people worry about themselves, but as servants of God, and followers of Christ, it is our duty to love our neighbors as we love ourselves (Mr. 12:31). The Scripture defines love clearly in Leviticus 19:17-18:

17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of they people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the Lord.

Therefore, we are duty bound to tell you that abortion is wrong and the consequences of abortion. So to those few women who are in the situation you described: either have the baby and do your God-given duty to raise it, or put the baby up for adoption. Consider God’s word on what He requires of you:

Ephesians 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 ¶ Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

Trust the Lord; obey the Lord; your way will become clear.

To those women who say their child was a mistake:

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee.

Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

You must please stop calling these children ‘mistakes.’ The Lord God knew all of His creation before they ever came into being! Plus, He calls children His heritage! It’s a mistake to take a gift of God and throw it back in His holy face by murdering His “heritage”, or raising that baby in the ways of this vile flesh. Children are dependent on their mothers and fathers for protection, for answers and for guidance!

To those women who are still vainly struggling to justify abortion:

Ex 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Luke 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

If you are supposed to love your enemies, how much more are you to love your own child? This is a no-brainer.

Lastly, do not think that these people who so cavalierly murder children will get away without consequences.

Romans 12:19 Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Thank you for writing.

Rejoicing In The Work of God


I'm curious as to your thoughts of Proverbs 17:5? Whoso mocketh the 
poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall 
not be unpunished.

When Louis Theroux asked a WBC member if she rejoices in calamities 
her response was "definitely". 

What would your interpretation on this verse be?

Thank you for your time.

Dear friend –

The verse is clear on its face. Don’t do it. Our members did not 
and do not do it. Glad is not the same as rejoicing. The Word of 
God is a perfect, blessed symphony of goodness, purity and safety, 
all day, every day, and nothing incongruous or inconsistent about 
it! He with ears to hear will hear the still small voice saying 
“This is the way, walk ye in it”. 

So take your verse and obey that. Don’t mock the poor, and do not 
be glad about calamities. BUT rejoice at the Work of God that
fulfills ALL of His word! Rejoice when you see the judgment! Rejoice 
that you have been spared because you KNOW that you deserve death
and hell, and except for the saving blood … the redemptive blood
that was spilled to pay that debt that I owe, giving me right and
title to the righteousness of my Lord Jesus Christ, which covers 
me like a cozy and wonderful robe, I would suffer the same exact
fate, i.e. walking through this earth without hope and without 
God, then die in hopelessness, never to see the glories of heaven,
never to be permitted to sing the praises of my Lord, a fate 
worse than anything. Rejoice that there IS punishment for the 
wicked, in line with the plain Word of God, keeping His pronounced 
promises that judgment SHALL come!  

Please consider these words carefully, and see the distinction 
between – HA HA!, Serves you RIGHT, YAY, Gotcha! and Thanking God
with great rejoicing for his unfolding providence that confirms 
His words, ever so perfectly:

Psalm 58:1 ¶ To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David. 
Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge 
uprightly, O ye sons of men?
2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your 
hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon 
as they be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the
deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never 
so wisely.
6 ¶ Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great
teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he 
bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: 
like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away 
as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he 
shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the 
righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

Shall:  It WILL happen.  😊   

Thank you for asking.
Your thankful, friends at WBC, who fear God.
