"Remission of sins" in proper context

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; Romans 3:25 The remission of sins is only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and only for the sins of the past. Before anyone explodes in protest over the clear context of God's word keep in mind that... ...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13:3 And... ...If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 Don't treat the grace of God as a "get out of jail free card'" and a license to continue on in sin.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Romans 6:1-2 We all should really just stop sinning and should we sin then we need to confess and repent to Almighty God as if our life depends on it, because it absolutely does! God takes sin so seriously that He literally died in order that we could receive forgiveness of sin. Since He was so willing to die for our sins then we should be as willing to die to sin and live for Him!
