What Happens if We Continue to Sin After Being Forgiven?

Episode 321 Show Notes 

From the Show

No, there is absolutely nothing that you can do. Not even your faith is a key that unlocks the door of heaven. It’s Christ and his obedience, his life, his death, his resurrection that the key that secures your place in heaven.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. I’m confused about how works relate to being forgiven. After God forgives us, do we need to do anything else to secure our place in heaven? What about people who continue to sin after being forgiven?

2. Why is Sunday now the day of worship? Why do we honor the Catholic System?

3. Is death a necessity because it's the only way our souls can get to Heaven?

4. What is the Christian approach to overcoming anxiety?

5. Is it important for believers to take time to pray alone? If so, what’s the best way to go about doing so?
