What Protestant denominations teach this? I’ve heard it many times before, I don’t understand this doctrine. Are they implying once you believe in Christ all sins are forgiven? (past, present, and future). I know this is a calvinistic doctrine.
As a Catholic, I don’t believe this, one must repent of their sins in order to be forgiven.
I agree with FabiusMaximus that context is important.
However, in the absence of a case of true repentance, this quote seems to me to be indicative of bad theology. I don’t know of any Christian church that teaches that we don’t have to ask forgiveness for sins that we are aware we have committed.
This is certainly true for some christians. At least the baptists that come to our door every now and again (their church had baptist in it yet they claim they weren’t a denomination either so I don’t know). They claimed that once they accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior that from that moment on they were saved. When I asked what happens when you sin again (noting to them how Christ Himself said that the most virtuous man sins seven times a day) they said that once we are saved we can’t sin and if that someone “did” sin then he wasn’t truly saved or when he proclaimed Christ as King, he didn’t truly mean it or had reservations (I am paraphrasing that last part as I don’t recall exactly what they said though it was along those lines). Once I tried my hand at apologetics with them then they decided it was time to go to the next house lol. Funny how those who claim to share the Truth, end up fleeing from it.
