Was Jesus ever more serious? How can people possibly think its ok to keep on sinning after they have accepted Him as their Lord and Saviour ?
What I don't completely understand is this, we all sin through the sinful nature, but when do you know that its time to "cut it off and throw it away" to keep yourself from going to hell? Can anybody please shed some light on this subject please ?
I would think that maybe you only need take such drastic measures when you cannot stop yourself from sinning. Something like Pornography, whenever you see it you cannot help but lust...
TV is full of it. Advertisements, and late night shows, movies. So is this the time to "gouge out your eye"? Could Jesus possibly just mean that then its time to destroy the TV ? So what should you do if someone forces you to watch it ? What do you do then ? Maybe then you should gouge out your own eye.
So is Jesus really just saying that he doesn't care what you do, but just dont sin. Even if means you have to go blind ? So the sin in these passages are referring to sin for which you lack self-control or which you are not possible to avoid ?
