Since God is open to forgiving sins does that make it ok to willfully offend him?

God never encourages sins, but He gives compssionate warnings.
“3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.” (Christ, King James Bible, Mark)

Thank you for your clear response Interestingly enough, Jude was inspired to warn the early Christian congregation about certain ‘ungodly men who had turned the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct and proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ.’ (Jude 1:4) It would seem that Jehovah God’s undeserved loving kindness is not to be abused by using it as an excuse to willfully sin against him

Rememberest thou not God’s warning uttered in times past, that thou mayest be of them that heed His warning? He said, and He, verily, speaketh the truth: “From it (earth) have We created you, and unto it will We return you, and out of it will We bring you forth a second time.” This is what God ordained unto all them that dwell on earth, be they high or low. It behoveth not, therefore, him who was created from dust, who will return unto it, and will again be brought forth out of it, to swell with pride before God, and before His loved ones, to proudly scorn them, and be filled with disdainful arrogance.
(Baha’u'llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 230)
