Reminder: God does not hear the prayers of sinners.
 
I would like to post a quick reminder for those of you who call yourself Christians and sinners. As we all know, True Christians are Perfect. as evidenced by
1 John 3:8-9
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Now, some of you may not believe that. You may try to twist the verses posted in that sermon into believing that you are still a horrible sinner, but God loves you anyway.

For those of you; I would ask, why do you even bother praying? Don't you know God doesn't listen to the prayers of sinners? God only listens to those who do His will.
After Jesus heals the blind man, a fellow speaking up for Christ tells us that; any man who does His Father's will, the Father will listen to him. Not those in sin.

John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

Here are additional references and resources that show us God's wrath and refusal to listen to the prayers of sinners.

Deuteronomy 1:45 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.,
Deuteronomy 3:26 But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.
2 Samuel 22:42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
Job 27:9 Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?
Job 35:12-13 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
Psalms 18:41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.,
Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
Proverbs 1:24-28
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Proverbs 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
Proverbs 15:29 The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
Proverbs 21:13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
Proverbs 21:27, The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
Proverbs 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
Isaiah 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

Isaiah 45:19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.
Jeremiah 14:12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
Jeremiah 15:1 Then said the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth.
Jeremiah 18:17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.
Lamentations 3:8 Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.
Lamentations 3:44 Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through.
Ezekiel 8:18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
Ezekiel 20:3 Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to enquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.
Ezekiel 20:31 For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be enquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.
Hosea 5:6 They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
Micah 3:4 Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
Zechariah 7:12-13 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:
Malachi 1:9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 2:11-13 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.
And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.

James 1:6-7 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

What if the sinner is praying for help to repent and turn her life over to The Lord?
That's what I did and then I found this site so I thought God must have led me here.

That's what repentance is for.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

Amen brother! That means that God does not hear the prayer of a joo, a muslim, a hairy krishna, a scientologist, and atheist or a boodhist. Not one syllable.

Only false Christians believe such things.

GLORY! It makes perfect sense, of course. If one refuses to listen to the Word of God, why in the Heavens should God listen to them? God's Plan is truly a logical and wonderful one!

Guess god hears the prayers of no one, for all of us are sinners in the eyes of god.

Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"

It does not say "for all except True Christians", it says ALL, meaning EVERYONE.

At least you are attempting to quote scripture. I'll give you that. Did you not look through Pastor Levi's sermon on Christian perfection? Romans 3:23 is addressed.

I'll go ahead to go over it with you again. If you would continue reading your Bible in Romans 3, you would see that Paul writes in the very next verses.

24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

Sins that are past. As in no longer sinning.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

All that shows me is that it is forgiven, yet not forgotten.

How do you expect God to forget something? He's God. What does forgiveness from sin mean if the slate isn't wiped clean?

Are you only slightly retarded or are you a full on demon possessed mongo?

You are a woman. And cunning though you think you may be, you are NOT a linguist. ALL and EVERYONE come from 2 entireley different base roots, with slightly differing nuances of meaning.

And even then you
1)dare to interpret something you have no understanding of. (Linguistics/Etymology)
2)interpret wrongly what you have previously interepreted using a wrong interpretation (the etymologies+ Scripture)
3) speak for God. (And that's just sheer impudence you hell-bound harlot)

Please stop it. Now.

See, that's the problem with taking some anonymous book's definitions at face value without questioning the deep underlying meanings.

You end up deluded.

What you perceive as the Voice of God is just some voice in your head. Completely unlike what we TRUE Christians™ here when God tells us sinners must be destroyed.

Why don't you stop looking for fault in others, take some personal responsibility for once in your life friend?

Don't be foolish, you curry-besotted fool. All of this is covered in the 1611 KHV Bible, if you'd simply step away from the call center for just a few moments and open your rheumy eyes.
