Passages about Sin from the New Message

“Why would God be so upset with individuals when God knows exactly what they are going to do, when God understands that they are in a reality where error is so prevalent and the seductions of error are so great, there are very few people who would ever surmount them?” [4]

"Your life may be filled with errors and mistakes, wrong decisions and poor choices, but you have still come from your Ancient Home to which you will return. Your worthiness in the sight of God is unchanged. There is only great effort to repair your errors so that you may experience your True Self so that it may be rendered into the world." [5]

"Do not think that humanity is a bad or sinful race. Humanity is simply a race like all other races in the Greater Community at a certain stage of evolution and mental and physical development." [6]

“If you are willing to learn from your errors, you will not be so afraid to recognize them. Then you will wish to understand them, not to deny them, not to bear false witness against them, not to call them by other names, but to admit them for your own benefit. From this recognition, you will be able to assist others in the reclamation of Knowledge, for they too must learn how to learn from their errors.” [7]

“God does not punish the sinful because God Knows without Knowledge all you can do is commit error, perhaps minor errors, socially acceptable errors, errors in keeping with the general beliefs and consensus of your culture, but errors nonetheless. These errors disassociate you from yourself; they disassociate you from others; they are prejudicial. Without Knowledge, you will look through the lens of fear and desire, and you will not see the truth of your own nature, or the truth of the nature of those around you. [8]

“Sin and error are the natural by-products of living in a state of Separation, of alienation from oneself and others. These are to be expected, these are the consequences.” [8]

"The Revelation will make your errors more glaring, your disappointments more apparent, your lack of direction more deeply felt. It may even increase your suffering at the outset until you can discern the real gift of Revelation and recognize that you are beginning a greater journey now." [9]

"Confusion calls for preparation and the true application of Knowledge. Therefore, the sinful are not punished but are attended to. The wicked are not sent to hell but are prepared for Heaven. This is the true nature of God’s purpose in the world." [10]

“Your anger is not justified because anger is born of confusion. Yet confusion calls for preparation and the true application of Knowledge. Therefore, the sinful are not punished but are attended to. The wicked are not sent to hell but are prepared for Heaven. This is the true nature of God’s purpose in the world.” [10]

“If you want what is unnecessary and devote yourself to that, you will lose touch with what is real and genuine and your life will become confused and unhappy.” [11]

“Do not let the errors of the world dissuade you. Let the errors of the world prompt you and inspire you towards Knowledge, for this is part of the gift of the world.” [12]

“The only thing that can stand between you and the fulfillment of your purpose and the reclamation of true relationship is trying to maintain relationships or associations that do not have a foundation in Knowledge, for it is only fear of the true and identification with the false that can possibly obstruct you in your purpose.” [13]

“You will have many signs before you are about to make a mistake.” [14]

“If you try to teach yourself, you will only recirculate old information. You will walk around the same territory imagining you are making great strides and after many breakthroughs, you will end up in the same place.” [15]

“Build your foundation and your relationship with Knowledge. As you take each step in doing this and patiently participate in this great process, the likelihood of your making a serious mistake lessens. Eventually, you will not allow yourself to make a mistake, regardless of the attraction or the seeming rewards or benefits. While others give their lives away for love or money, you will not be able to do either.” [16]

“Words cannot describe the waste that has occurred and that occurs every moment and every day through misappropriation in relationships.” [17]

“Estrangement from life produces all neurosis. The inability to act produces all frustration. The inability to know produces all deception.” [17]

"People actually think that they can determine what is right for them based upon their wishes alone. If people could really determine what is right for them, you would not see the degree of human error that exists in the world today.” [18]

“Here it is necessary to be able to see both truth and error objectively. Do not think that you can see truth by denying error. And do not think you can comprehend human behavior and evolution by their positive aspects alone, for you must see all of it. Your Knowledge will take from all of it what is real and genuine, and from this, it will teach you how to see, how to act and, therefore, how to live.” [19]

“Lying, stealing, bearing false witness, adultery—these are all great problems. Murder, rape—these are all great problems. They are all forms of violation of God’s will and purpose for you and for the world. This has been known for a long time. The Commandments have been given, but people seem to think they are no longer important or that exceptions can be made or that they are only relative to certain situations. It is because people have lost contact with Knowledge and have been corrupted by their cultures, and even sometimes by their religious understanding that such violation occurs to the degree to which it does today.” [20]
