Many time believers differentiate sin as willfull and non willfull. Is there a difference .....not including an honest mistake?
That's the catch though: I think a 'non wilfull sin' is probably an honest mistake in alot of cases. For example: The Society taught for years that Jerusalem was destroyed in 607 BCE. We know that some time (I believe) in the 1970s, Ray Franz discovered that this was an erroneous teaching and brought it to the GB's attention. As anyone who's read CoC knows, they refused to change the date because it would negate their so-called 'scriptural authority' that Jesus chose them to be masters over all his belongings in 1919.
I would say that before Ray brought this to their attention, their teaching this doctrine could be classified as an 'honest mistake'. However, once it was brought to their attention that it was a false teaching and they deliberately continued to teach it, then to me, that is no longer an 'honest mistake' but a 'willfull sin'.
Just my two cents.
Grace said: I swore really bad the other day.... It was willfull....but since Christ says none are perfect. I felt better after I said I was sorry.
If I had to say I was sorry after every time I swore, Jesus wouldn't have time to listen to anyone else on planet earth.
