Okay. So you're one of those people who is constantly repenting of believing and confessing a false gospel. I've met people like you. I guess when I call you a heretic, you'd have to agree with me, eh?

There is a command in 2 Corinthians 5:20 that says, "Be reconciled to God." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed that command and are thus not reconciled to God.

There are commands in Acts 2:38 that say, "Repent and be baptized." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed those commands and have not repented of dead works and have not been baptized.

There are commands in Acts 26:20 that say, "to repent and to turn to God." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed those commands and have not repented of dead works and have not turned to God.

There is a command in John 20:22 that says, "Receive the Holy Spirit." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed this command and have not received the Holy Spirit.

There is a command in Acts 16:31 that says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed this command and do not believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is a command in 1 John 4:1 that says, "do not believe every spirit." So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed this command and do believe every spirit.

And there are many implied commands, such as not to say in your heart "There is no God" (Psalm 14:1); not to pray to a god who cannot save (Isaiah 45:20); not to be ignorant of the righteousness of God, not to seek to establish your own righteousness, and to submit to the righteousness of God (Romans 10:3); not to preach a false gospel (Galatians 1:8-9); not to say we have no sin and we have not sinned (1 John 1:8,10); not to deny that Jesus is the Christ (1 John 2:22); to abide in the doctrine of Christ (2 John 9); not to speak peace to one who brings a false gospel (2 John 11). So you believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed these commands and say in your heart "There is no God," pray to a god who cannot save, are ignorant of the righteousness of God, are seeking to establish your own righteousness, are not submitted to the righteousness of God, are preaching a false gospel, are saying you have no sin and have not sinned, are denying that Jesus is the Christ, are not abiding in the doctrine of Christ, and are speaking peace to one who brings a false gospel.

And God obviously commands us to judge all Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Satanists, atheists, Mormons, JW's, Moonies, etc., etc., to be lost. But you must believe that when you sin, you have disobeyed these commands and are not judging all Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Satanists, atheists, Mormons, JW's, Moonies, etc., etc., to be lost.

And on and on we could go ...

It really gets quite ridiculous.
