PERPETUAL SIN: A SINNER CAN’T DO PROPER GOOD WHILE A SINNER

The Bible regards sin as a very serious matter.  It says it is you stopping God from working in you except to invite you to repent.  Catholics believe sin can be venial or mortal.  Venial damages God' work in you.  Mortal crushes it.  Mortal takes you to everlasting damnation at death unless repented.

The apostle James observed that the person who breaks one of the divine Laws breaks all of them (2:10). A sinner cannot then do real good. He also said that a fig tree cannot bear olive berries and that a fountain cannot give good water and bad (3:10,12). He means that sin defiles all you do even the good.

Likewise, Matthew 12:34 has Jesus telling us that if you have any unrepentance in you any good you do is telling God that you only care about good when it suits you not that it is good. “How can you being EVIL speak GOOD things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A GOOD man out of the GOOD treasure of the heart bringeth forth GOOD things, and an EVIL man out of the EVIL treasure bringeth forth EVIL things”.

Paul said that he was sold to sin (Romans 7:14). Sin owned him and held him captive so he did not do any real good.

Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount that we being evil still know how to do good. Does this deny that we are naturally only evil for it was spoken to people who were not Christians or saved and who were evil? You can know what good is and never do it.

Anyway even every sin is good in a sense. It is a warped sense of the good. When you rebel it is because you want something good. The Jews would have known that Jesus did not mean righteous good for their own scriptures and reason said that a person who harbours a sin cannot please God no matter how much good he does (Isaiah 64:6; Psalm 39:5; Job 14:4). If I help a sick person and in my heart I will the act not to please God I am doing good but not in my heart.

You can do good holding an evil attitude in your heart so it is not real good then. If you are nice to people just because you want to be nice to them and cannot be nice to yourself then your act is evil. Nobody can stand the person who pretends that good is evil or that evil is good. Their viciousness and promotion of badness while their hands are placed together in prayer and their faces benign just make people feel more contempt towards them.

Not long after I made my first confession, I made the first major religious discovery of my life. Seated in the Church waiting for another humiliating confession, I realised that all my virtues were really vices and hypocrisies though Rome taught me to see them as good works. I was only a child and I did not know what to do so I spent most of the years that followed in communion with the Devil despite daily hours of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

Like Catholicism, the Bible and many religions say we are all sinners. The Christian believes that because of original sin we are pulled into sin and nobody is sinless. Romans 3 makes this clear. So does reason for we can all think of things we could do to improve the world and don’t do them.

The Catholic Church tells us that we can stay out of sin but only for a moment. If I cleanse myself of all sin and then do a good work there is sin in the fact that I don’t want to do a better good.

And she says that if we fall into sin and won’t come out we can still do real good provided the sin is venial except in appearance. Venial sin does not end your relationship with God while the other, mortal, does. The Church says that the mortal sinner cannot do real good because he or she has renounced God.

So according to the pope and his minions you can please God while being in a state of venial sin or when you are not sorry for it. Every Catholic knows by experience what is wrong with this. We all see people who do good to a person while not being sorry for hurting that person as bluffers and toadies.

One sin prevents you from doing sincere good. To refuse to be penitent for your sins is a new sin. Every moment you abide in unrepentance is a fresh sin - the sin of unrepentance. When you do good and refuse to cast off your sins you are impudently letting God know that you do good when it suits you and not him. The good is done to gratify arrogance and self-centredness so it is really counterfeit good. It may have good results but it is not good for it is done with an impure motive. It is offence for it can’t have a good motive. This religion advocates artificial holiness.

When you do good instead of repenting first you are using that good as an excuse not to purify yourself so then how could it be genuine good? It is inauthentic. It is harder to see your evil if you do that. Such sin is worse than the original sin. Jesus explicitly taught that the good-living respectable and charming Pharisees were far worse than tax collectors and prostitutes. That was why.

If you maintain your sinfulness you cannot love anybody else. Sin is opposition to God’s goodness and to oppose that is to oppose what is good for others so any love you think you have for them is a pretence or self-delusion. It is also insulting them for if you hurt X then you would have hurt your friend Y if he had been X.

Some say the following. Since we can’t stop sinning our good works and kind deeds are sinful. God just has to reward these “good” sins in order to supply us with praise and grace to stop us from getting worse.” The argument is unsound for God does not have to call evil good to do that. He should take us to Heaven when we are no good down here instead.

Sin is an offence. To be impenitent for it is to double the insult. To be unrepentant for this is to double both insults and it keeps doubling every moment. So when you persist in unrepentance you are accumulating more and more guilt. I mean sinful responsibility and not the emotion when emotion that conflicts with good logic and forces you astray is diagnosed as a disorder we must be extremely sick and unreliable when we don’t worry about our sins like we would about death and other things.

To offer dog dirt to God would be a mortal sin in the eyes of the Church. So it is a mortal sin for a venial sinner to attempt to consecrate a good deed performed while one is in venial sin to God. It is like offering dog dirt. And if the sinner does not do good it would only be a venial sin unless the commission does tremendous harm. Offering dog dirt wouldn’t be as bad as offering sin to God. Dirt is only a thing but sin is disrespect.

The doctrine that we all sin and can still please God forbids much goodness.

If all are sinners then it is a sin to thank a person for that is thanking him for sinning. It is a sin to thank others for helping you for that help though not sinful in itself was given by a sinful motive.

If all are sinners then it is a sin to do good for you should be lecturing sinners on repentance all the time for anything else is the sin of distracting them from awareness of their sins. If you are sinners yourselves you have to include yourselves. Yes people will look at you and get sick of you but God said he comes first and that we are never to advance the cause of sin. And to do anything that leads to a person staying in sin for even one minute extra is a sin – if priests were really holy they would stay in the confessional day and night so that sinners could get absolved as fast as possible. When sinning Catholics praise God for the good he allegedly helped them to do they are praising Satan because they mean to give thanks to a being who is so cruel that he punishes people for sin while regarding it as being of no consequence! Their prayers and self-satisfaction are making dirt of the people they have hurt. The papacy wants to create a race of Pharisees like those Jesus had to put up with.

When a person in the habit of sin asks God for grace to do better that person is insulting him unless he is asking for the grace of repentance. And asking for the grace of repentance would be a sin for you already have that grace for God offers it to everybody for he wants all to be saved. So all the person can do is imply consent to God’s forgiveness instead of asking for grace. Only after the repentance has been completed can he ask for grace. But the repentance doesn’t do much good for a new sin happens as soon as it is got. When the venial or mortal sinner praises God’s love that person is being sarcastic. They are telling God that he is good but not good enough for them for they prefer sin.

You cannot forgive unless you judge as well. Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount that it is a sin to judge if you are as bad or worse yourself. It is hypocrisy to pardon a person when you have a sin yourself even if you are not as bad as that person. I forgive you but I won’t forgive my own by pardoning it and getting it pardoned so the smaller the sin I have the worse the insult. It is hypocrisy to approve of a person repenting when you won’t repent yourself for that is saying, “I am glad you took the inconvenience of repenting but rather you than me!” You cannot care about the person with an attitude like that! And if your sin is as bad or worse this is terrible. And if your sin is smaller it is still terrible. You agree with the person suffering to abandon such and such a big sin and you still keep your “teeny” one.

Incidentally, all this proves that if Jesus gave priests the power to forgive sin it cannot work.

Hypocritical Catholics hate the religionists they oppose for when they are hypocrites themselves what right have they opposing them? Catholics who know the facts about sin making your good evil and who support their religion are responsible for every drop of blood spilt over their religion for they are building up the fraud that leads to it. They hate and or disrespect the people who have died over their religion. They have brains so they cannot vaunt their “sincerity” as their exoneration.

The saints of Rome would have left their Church over her dogmas which bless evil if they were decent. If they did genuine miracles then the Devil gave them the power. Only he would protect a religion of such error. Satan loves to do “good” for his mysterious evil purpose (2 Corinthians 11:14).

The Catholic Church is fond of its martyrs like St Thomas More and St Blaise. These men gave their lives for Satan and were filled with rapture for his unholy spirit despite their good image. They weren’t right in the head.

Protestantism as preached by Luther might be a disgrace but at least it does not pretend that real goodness and love of sin can be had at the same time. In that system, God pretends you are holy like Jesus who has been holy for you in your place so that he can let you into Heaven forever.

The religions all say that we all fail in some way to do what is right and that none of us are perfect. No matter how much good we do we would do more by moving away to a place where there is trouble and where we can be of help.

The Buddhist holds that if he were perfect he would be dead and in Nirvana.

Most religions encourage evil dressed up as good as does the Catholic Church.

How can any sin be venial when it denigrates forgiveness and closes the heart to real mercy and results in so much degradation? If a person stole ten pence a day from his mother and both lived long enough for it to amount to a million pounds they say that person is a mortal sinner who just broke the sin up into bits but still intended to all that harm.

The doctrine of sin makes hypocrites and would kill us all by despair or through the hands of people who can’t stand us. It is a bad doctrine.

When we sin most of the time - if not all of it - it follows that when you believe in God your trespasses are worse than they would be if you did not for then you are intending to hurt God as well as other people and yourself. When if there was no God or if you didn’t believe in him you would not be meaning to hurt him. There would be less evil intended. Christians cannot use the objection: “Belief in God increasing the malice of wrongdoing is not a bad thing as long as we remember that the good we do would be more good because we believe in God and intend it to be acts of love for him as well as others so the increase of sin is made up for by the increase of goodness.” They cannot use it for it presupposes that we are more good than bad.

God is a bad doctrine for it implies that we sin most if not all of the time. He has put us in a world full of temptation and godless influence instead of making us think we are in a world that is full of good influences, a virtual reality world. This implies that we are too bad to be influenced which is why we are on this world.

Attachment to venial sin taints your goodness and is like casting dirt into a lovely clean well water.

Attachment to mortal is more serious and is like kicking the pail of water over.  It does more than taint your goodness.  It makes the goodness a pretence.

If you have attachment to sin that will taint your goodness.  If you wanted your goodness to be pure you would cast the sin out first.  You would repent.  And doing good when you stand by sin is a sin for when you do good it is harder to take your sin seriously any more.  The good looks like it alone matters not the sin.  So unrepented sin pollutes all your good.  This means that even a small sin is only small when it starts off.  It turns into arsenic if nursed over time and that makes you end up with piles upon piles of demerits.
