Candace Cameron Bure: I Used God’s Forgiveness as a License to Sin

Candace Cameron Bure: I Used God’s Forgiveness as a License to Sin May 15, 2015


You might recognize from Full House, or more recently, Dancing with the Stars. In this five-minute video, she talks about her relationship with God and how it has changed her life. 

Candace prayed the sinner’s prayer when she was twelve, but church and God took a back seat to her acting career when she was a young adult.

She thought she was a pretty good person because she wasn’t doing any big, serious sins like taking drugs like her friends were doing. “If my worse thing I’m doing is being intimate with my boyfriend before I’m married, that’s just not that bad,” she thought.

Then a character in a book convicted her. She had been using God’s forgiveness as a license to live her life however she wanted. She decided to find out what the Bible really said, and changed her lifestyle that wasn’t pleasing to God.

Our culture tries to sell us a lie that sex outside of marriage is no big deal, that it’s just fun and has no consequences. Young people are expected to do it, and are somehow weird if they don’t. But God has another idea. He created sex to be kept inside the commitment of marriage. There is a good reason it has so many negative consequences.

I hope more young women hear Candace’s story and decide to find out for themselves how God wants them to live.

    I am sorry. But I don’t seem to be as impressed by Candace Cameron’s faith walk as others do. While she professes her faith, her lifestyle portrays a different walk.
    I would never count her as a role model for young girls. Her lack of modesty in her clothing is just one example. The idea that just because she is “acting” that it is acceptable for other men other than her husband to be touching and kissing her is just plain wrong. That woman needs to start remembering what the Bible says instead of her tv lines. Otherwise she is no different than all the other Christians living like the world “having a form of godliness, but no power.”

    I bet you got the “hate life” part down pat.

    Luke 14:26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters–yes, even their own life–such a person cannot be my disciple.

    John 12:25 anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life

    Yea, I do. I hate hypocrisy and even the seeds of hypocrisy. And yes, I hate everything that stains the sacrifice that Christ made for His own. I am not sure what those scriptures you noted have to say with my comment, but I am in full agreement of them both and live my life that way.

    Blessings to you!

    The “sacrifice” that Christ made stains his own reputation. See 5. The Suicidal Jesus: The Violent Atonement (Jesus as a Willing Sacrificial Victim) in the following text:

    I’ll let God make my last comment.

    1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

    If you want to believe in pure nonsense (or foolishness,) be my guest. Like St. Paul, I think your intellectual capacity is pretty low.

    1 Corinthians 1:26 Not many of you were wise by human standards…
