Hebrews 8:12 "For I will be merciful-(re: word 'merciful'; original is 'be far from'. How far? -Psalms 103:12)-to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I rememberSinNoLongerCounts4.html#His one sacrifice was enough -(original Greek is 'stay handling')-no more."-Paraphrased: 'I will be removed from any unrighteousness by never again seeing sin.' In essence 'I want nothing more to do with it as My Son has destroyed sin once for all.' 

Hebrews 10:9-17,26: By the will of God in the second covenant, we're sanctified, once and for all time. Jesus' sacrifice was just that great -Isaiah 53:6. 1Corinthians 15:17-(if Christ isn't raised (resurrected), were still under the penalty of sin 'thanks' to Adam -1Corinthians 15:21,22). 

The Father does not regard your sins -2Corinthians 5:19
    The result of sin is surely death -Romans 6:23. But whose sin?-Adam's! 
    Your sins never did matter in the eternal scheme of things -Romans 5:12 (and see note), and similarly, neither do your righteousnesses matter (but your reward does). It was the law that was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14) so that there would be no transgressions (Romans 4:15) shown by it (Romans 3:20) and only righteousness now available to all those who believe -Romans 3:22; 10:12
    The result of sin was here already when you arrived on the Earth -1Corinthians 15:21,22
    Some may have felt guilty and despondent over Romans 6:14-("for sin won't have dominion over you")-when they see that they are far less than perfect, having sin still around like a plague. Or, they may feel like a pall of gloom has been covering them all their lives. Many persons feel similarly
    As far as God is concerned, there is no longer (in the new covenant) any sin to be imputed unto mankind. They were ALL imputed to Christ! He exchanged His righteousness for the law that produced unrighteousness. So, are you in the old or the new covenant
   We already have forgiveness of sins -Ephesians 1:7 "In Whom we have-(not 'had', at a time of a repentance at one particular time in the past)-redemption-(one is now in a state of redemption, always covered by His blood)-through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace."
    Because of this, we need to hear that we are ok with God, unconditionally – not "if-you repent, if-you do this and if you do that". There's no ifs or ands about it. We are already accepted, once for all. 
    Just as through an understanding of nature's patterns, we derive stability, so it is in understanding God's pattern of thinking toward us, we become stable in spirit (Ephesians 3:17; Colossians 2:7), through Him established in us. 
    It's through understanding the subject of righteousness that establishes us in Him -Psalms 85:13 "Righteousness shall go before Him-(or, 'comes from His presence' in us)-and shall set us in the way of his steps."
    Herein lies our security, both now, and forever.
    But what about the so called 'unpardonable sin'?
    Hebrews 6:1-6 talks about moving away from one's repentance (changing) from works that got you nothing, eternally speaking, and says, that if one was to fall away, he can't start all over again. Why? Because Christ's sacrifice where He spilled His blood-(John 19:34; Hebrews 9:12)-was good for all time and once for all.-Hebrews 9:26.
    His sacrifice for man's redemption purifies man's conscience so that he is able to serve God in total sincerity.
    In this we can have boldness and joy -Hebrews 10:19,20,22; 2:11; 1Peter 1:5; John 14:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1John 1:4.
    Christ's dying once was enough -Hebrews 6:6; Matthew 20:28; 1Timothy 2:6. Was His death insufficient
    He has made us accepted -Ephesians 1:6; Colossians 1:21. That's why He gave us the gift of His righteousness -Romans 5:17. Now we are clean and pure in His presence, so, abide in Him-(prayer and study helps you abide) -John 15:3
    In the New Testament era all sin no longer counts, unlike it did in the Old Testament era -Hebrews 9:15. There it counted from year to year.
    The apostles preached the same things, but a translation error has given many a slightly altered perception of repentance from Acts 2:38, where the word 'for' should more correctly be translated 'into', as all forgiveness of sin is in Christ; not 'for' as though it comes from Christ. 
    Still, many Christians erroneously desire a rigid set of defunct rules and regulations (Galatians 3:1-13) to guide them (they lust; they just gotta have those 'ol rules and regulations this in effect being 'making provision for the flesh {Romans 13:14} after a standard to live by apart from faith -Galatians 5:6 and love), thinking that if they follow a bunch of do's and don'ts, they are on their way to being righteous (Galatians 3:19,21-26) and approved of God. 
    That's saying, "I want your approval God based on what I believe I should do", and not on faith made possible by what Christ has already done. Galatians 3:19 shows that the Old Testament law was added until Christ came and took away all sin once and for all time.-...continues
