  • No.
    im an atheist now but even when I was a christian no I didn’t feel guilty.
    I guess I never blame myself and I’m always nice to myself. I always put my entertainment first lol
    when I was a christian I only used god for comfort and hope. I didn’t care about anything else because according to christianity if I asked for forgivenness at the end everythin would be fine lol.

    Everybody makes small mistakes on a regular basis; the prayer Jesus taught is standard, and the feelings it expresses may be used daily or many times a week. This simply acknowledges that we all are sinners and recognize that through Christ we receive forgiveness.

    There is no particular feeling of guilt in these cases at all. On occasion a person commits a more serious sin, hopefully rarely. In those cases, one must confess the sin in prayer to God through Christ. A serious effort must be made not to repeat sins.

    If a Christian becomes a worker of lawlessness he is damned.

  • Pretty much constant. Or should I say, the feeling of unforgiven sin.

    I’m pretty much with loves makeup on this one.

    I know what the answer SHOULD be, which is what I suspect some of the others are saying. But the honest answer is ‘constant’.

  • it’s not really something i ask because i sin everyday i ask because of the sins we don’t know we commit. Guilt is really something that we feel all the time after we have been forgiven of our sins. After God forgives us we now have to forgive ourselves and that’s where most people feel so bad and so disgusting then they begin to sin all over again with the feeling of unworthyness.

    It’s hard but guilt is something that we shouldn’t have to feel but we do anyway and that’s the reason why we aren’t good enough, but he loves us anyway.

  • Very common. It’s the Holy Spirit saying, “You’ve done wrong.” When I sin I feel bad about it; of course good people always have a tendency to ask for forgiveness from not only God, but the people they’ve done wrong to.

  • All have fallen short. As time goes on we are changed into the image of God so I think we sin less but we know our fallen nature and it it not of ourselves but God working us that makes us sin less and less.

  • Since understanding the teaching of the Little Flower I use my sins to positive ends, for humility, for self-knowledge, to acknowledge that all good comes from God anyway and is — as she says — ‘on loan’

    Little Flower says honest acknowledgment of our failings is a CLAIM on God, esp on His Mercy.

  • the best fixture in my consciousness is that Jesus gave his life for me so that I dont need to have a “sin consciousness”

  • If I sin I ask for forgeiveness and change my ways. Then there is no reason to feel guilty.

    Php 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
    Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
    Php 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
    Php 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
    Php 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
    Php 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
    Php 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
    Php 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect [mature], be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
    Php 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
