thanks Lively Stone
I have not the time to show every point over and over
Good, because they don't make sense, anyway...but you sure seem to have the time to continually bash me.
Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
you are a sinner
I am so grateful to Jesus Christ that I am no longer a sinner, but a saint.
with love and a holy kiss Roy
You need to stop with that hypocrisy right now.
I'm so curious, how do you claim to no longer be a sinner? And what do you think that word means? Meaning, sinner, not sin. I'm pretty sure we don't agree, and I'm not bashing you here, I don't care if we agree or not. I'm just trying to understand. Thanks.
Nowhere in scripture are believers called sinners. They are saints. Our new nature and identity is in Christ.
Christians need to amend their language and take the higher road and declare themselves as who they are---no longer sinners but redeemed saints of God!
What ever you need to believe to support your narcissistic needs sister.
1 john 1 addresses people that have been atoned for, and have Christ as their mediator, but were being chastised for still sinning. In fact the purpose of the letter was to help them NOT SIN so they could be in fellowship with God.
You have the horse pushing the cart.
You are claiming things with conditions to them in scripture before you have met the conditions. No wonder you are confused. It's like a blind man claiming He can see before He's healed.
Take your big bold claim of the Spirit inside you.
IF the Spirit is inside of you, you are no longer in the flesh.
If you are no longer in the flesh, that which makes you do what you don't want to do and not do what you want to do is no longer there, so therefore you have some freedom. It was removed by a circumcision done by Christ.
Now instead of battling sin, you can run a race TO GOD.
When you are indwelled by Spirit, you no longer give into temptations of the flesh.
You don't deny still sinning, therefore you are making claims against scriptures caveats.
So, No, I won't make those claims. I'd rather know what I'm not than have to yell louder and louder what I am to try to convice man, something God says I'm not.
