Thank you very much for the research you have done on scripture and taking the time to post it on the Internet. At age 15 I accepted Christ as my savior but as an adult I am so afraid of dying. The scriptures you shared defining God's clarity concerning the security of our future with Him has given me comfort and clearer understanding. Debbie

Your site is a breath of fresh air.

Wow, someone who finally thinks the same way I and a "few" of my friends do about forgiveness of sins. I didn't think anyone else saw what I saw in 1 John. I'm glad I'm not alone.

Hello, I came across your web site the other day, and it brought me encouragement when you said it took you about a year to accept total forgiveness. The same with me. I always wondered why we had to confess our sins to get more forgiveness and what happened if you forgot to confess something...yikes. It finally hit me last year or so - duh - total forgiveness is total.  How many times can you be forgiven of all sins? However, I thought for a long time that I must be wrong about my new thoughts on 1 John 1:9 because that's all I ever heard from everyone. Other Christians thought I was a heretic, but I could not help but share the freedom and complete forgiveness we have in Christ. Anyhow, since last year or so I have discovered that there are millions of like-minded believers throughout the world, so I don't feel all alone anymore. Thanks.

Dear John, I read with interest your writing on the above verse and would like to share it with other Christians.

Hey Brother ... Great web site!  As soon as I started reading on your site I said "Praise God!"  Glad to see that there are some people out there that have come to an understanding of the completed work of the cross...keep proclaiming the Truth.

The majority of churches teach you're perfect positionally, but we need to ask forgiveness for the sins we commit. This has been an extremely confusing topic for me and because of a very insecure background, I am always wondering if God is distant from me, because I do not feel total confidence toward Him.

I liked what you had to say on your web site.

I liked your article.  I am wondering if you are a pastor, or just a brother in Christ.
