Is it okay to sin because you know will be forgiven?
Just believing in jesus christ alone will take you to heaven? But if you intentionally sin knowing you will be forgiven and tat jesus paid for our sins, is that still okay?

No, it is not. We occasion our own falls from grace with every sin.
Belief? No way. The devils also believe, and tremble. Faith without works (including repentance) is dead, and so are we.
Premeditated repentance doesn't really work all that well.

No. That would be a lack of repentance, and repentance is a critical component of salvation.

Research shows that the reason humans struggle with emotion to find equitable solutions is pinpointed the region of the brain called the insular cortex, or insula, which is also the seat of emotional reactions.
The fact that the brain has such a robust response to unfairness shows that sensing unfairness is a basic evolved capacity.
The emotional response to unfairness pushes people from extreme inequity and drives them to be fair. This observation shows our basic impulse to be fair isn't a complicated thing that we learn.
It therefore fully illustrates that all humans have morals controlled by the brain and that Christians are entirely wrong to try and claim morals as their own!!!!
But Christians found a way round it!
Do the crime and then repent and get a clean start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Government statistics show that Christians are vastly over represented in prisons for sexual, violent and fraudulent crime whilst year on year government figures show atheists make up only 2% of the prison population!
The Catholic Church is paying millions in compensation for the sex/paedophile crimes of their priests alone!
Christians are vastly over represented in the divorce courts!
Christians invented the concept of sin and then the idea that you could sin, ask forgiveness, get pardoned and start with a clean sheet!
So no surprise that they are so expert at it is it‽
A Christian is a man that feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday. - Thomas Russell YbarraSource(s): California Institute of Technology

26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

You will be forgiven if you sincerely repent of what you have done. You can't con God.

It is a grave error to believe you can continue to deliberately sin with no repentance and expect to receive salvation.
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? (Romans 6:15-16)
No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.(1 John 3:6)

Can you get grapes from a thorn-bush?
If someone has God’s Holy Spirit indwelling them, sin loses it’s appeal.
It’s an inside out transformation.
You can’t change the behaviour unless you change the heart.

According to Chris you can keep sinning endlessly. So have a few abortions. Maybe have a few gay casual encounters... Hit and run in traffic... Gossip after church every Sunday! Be a pedophile! And all will be well!!!

It is the way that it works. That isn't a license to sin. Romans 6 talks about that. But the fact that Jesus paid it all means that I believe in Jesus, so I'm going to heaven. It has to be that way, otherwise, nobody will be in heaven, since all believers in Jesus are still sinners that still sin. 1 John 1:8 says it, and it also says that anyone that claims to be without sin, is a liar who doesn't know the truth.
Jesus is God and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life, without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). And it is too late to be saved, after death.
