JESUS DID NOT FORGIVE TRANSGRESSIONS ON THE CROSS HE FORGAVE SINS



The words, “sin,” “iniquity,” and “transgression” are all mentioned in the Bible. Basically, all words communicate the same idea: evil /lawlessness. Sin and transgression are different applications of doing evil.

The word sin means “to miss the mark.” It can refer to doing something against God or against a person (Exodus 10:16), unintentionally. The sin of omission is an unintentional sinful action.

Transgression on the other-hand refers to presumptuous sin. A sin of commission an intentional act meaning “to choose to intentionally disobey; willful trespassing.” Jesus's forgiveness in true Christian theology only forgave past sins of omission (unintentional) but not future transgressions of commissions (intentional). Therefore forgiving sins on a pretext of intentional actions in advance of the course of action is not theoretically sound.

It is like a justification in this case of forgiveness when Jesus forgave your sins because you are sinful in advance for stealing or murder. The Children of Israel didn't have advance forgiveness they had Yom kippur 10 Days of Awe, a period of introspection and repentance of yesterday and the days and months before.

You cannot intentionally or unintentionally sin and say Jesus forgave me. Show me that in the Bible.
