Quote:
You do not forsake your sins in order to get saved, rather, when you get saved you forsake your sin.



The Bible repeatedly says the opposite. Haven't you ever read these passages?

A sinner receives God's mercy AFTER they forsake their sins (Isaiah 55:7, Prov. 28:13). It is not that God grants us mercy and then we forsake our sins, but that we forsake our sins and then God grants us mercy.

Repenting of your sins comes BEFORE salvation (2 Cor. 7:10). It is not that we repent of our sins because we are saved, but that we repent of our sins in order to get saved.

There must be repentance before there is remission (Mark 1:4, Luke 3:3, Luke 24:47). It is not that God forgives us and then we repent, but that we repent and then God forgives us.

It is not that we repent of our sins because we are saved, but that we repent of our sins in order to get saved.

Jesus Christ came to call sinners to repentance (Matt. 9:13, Mark 2:17, Luke 5:32), which means that He came to call law breakers to change their mind about breaking God's law. The disciples of Jesus went everywhere preaching that men should repent (Mark 6:12) which means that they went everywhere preaching that men must change their mind about breaking God's law.

So it is clear that we must turn from our sins to get saved, and therefore we must stay away from our sins to stay saved. If we return to our sins, we must again repent and again ask the Lord for forgiveness.

And do you think they responded to His call to repentance before or after they believed?

 Re:

Jesus said, "repent and believe" and until a person does BOTH they are not under the mercy of God but are under the wrath of God.

Unrepentant sin is unforgiven sin. Otherwise repentance is optional, not necessary.

 Re:

Biblical faith is always fused together with repentance. They are two sides of the same coin. If one has Biblical saving faith, one will have repentance. Prior to faith, one trusted in nothing but themselves. But with faith, one has begun a life that trusts in the Lord.

 Re:

Sanctification has a two fold meaning, the first is objective and outward sanctification, meaning to be set apart for God's service and the second meaning of sanctification is subjective and inward, to be made holy and pure in spirit, soul and body.

Regeneration is sanctification begun and as we grow in faith and love for Jesus we progress in the life of sanctification.Sanctification begins at regeneration and ends at the time we die.

There can be stages or crises of sanctifications but they are not definitly stopping points.

We always will need to be made more and more christlike in our walk of faith, we will always need the blood of Jesus to cleanse as we walk in the light as he is in the light.

From God standpoint we are sanctified thru the Spirit before the foundations of the world when he chose us to be in the image of his beloved Son.

Blessings,
