What does the Bible say about our guilt before God?


Where is it written in the Bible that we are guilty and not sinners before God? I have read a book by Sinelnikov that “before God there are not guilty people.” Explain to me, please, if we have to feel guilty before God and be accountable to Him for each situation?

Sinelnikov’s statement does not make sense. Precisely because we are sinners we became guilty before God and are worthy of death and an everlasting destruction from God.

The Bible says clearly that:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)(NASB)

And it also says:

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)(NASB)

This is the message repeated and well argued in the pages of the Holy Scripture which says:

Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God (Romans 3:19)(NASB)

Because of sin, all men became guilty before God.

Sinelnikov tries to convince people to not restrain themselves from anything, to give rein to all their sinful desires and he makes an aberrant statement, that it would not be written in the Bible that people are guilty before God.

Yes, all men became accountable to God through the sin that they have inherited and that they practice.

But, the GOOD NEWS is that God sent His Son into the world to free us from the penalty of sin and from the pressure of guilt.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16)(NASB)

It is good for Sinelnikov and for all people to be aware of the words of Jesus who said:

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:15)(NASB)
