God is able to forgive the sins of those that are faithful, but God also knows if we harden our hearts and refuse to repent of our sins. The heart makes all the difference.

We can lose our salvation but again it is not one sin. it is a general hardening of heart that turns away from the living God. This hardening results in a callousness to sin, refusal to repent, loss of love, etc. It is a pattern of behavior. Even David, with the seriousness of some of his sins, repented and did not let his heart remain hard. Even Calvin (whose theology i generally disagree with) did not believe future sins were forgiven. Future sins were not forgiven in advance or necessarily automatically forgiven when they occur. The difference is in paid for and forgiven.

A saved person’s future sins are forgiven. An unsaved person’s are not.

A person who does not care if they are sinning is not is not saved.

 Re: they never actually did or taught the righteous requirements of the Law,

What you said here is not true, and only half true. You really need to research what the Pharisees actually believed. Read Michael Hoffmann's Judaism Discovered. Actually they did not turn the Law into a "license to sin" they did preach its righteous requirements but missed the heart of the Law. Because no human on this earth can keep the law perfectly.

Luke Chapter 18
9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

I'm right here!


The better way of looking at this is the Lord has made provision for your future sin to be washed away, but that provision is not automatically applied to you...

Proverbs 28:13
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy

James 4:6
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble

Ezekiel 18:20
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him
