Christian Politics Forum / Re: Early voting in Texas

This is likely what they were talking about.

 Houlette wrote on her Facebook page that anyone reading should “be careful and double check your selections before you cast your vote! Don’t hesitate to ask for help.”

Perhaps Info Wars Alex overhyped just a smidge?
That's an interesting take, mostly well written.  Unfortunately some people are apparently too dim to realize that "satisfaction" over a "personal moral victory" is not the issue.  The issue is following one's conscience.  No one should ever be denigrated for that, and anyone who does denigrate another for that should have his or her alleged Christianity viewed with the greatest of suspicion.

  • Righteousness that is in the faith of Jesus Christ establishes (by fulfilling) the Law of faith - see Romans 3:23-31).

    The Law of faith has its set of commandments generally called the truth.  This truth came by Jesus Christ and is not to be confused with any commandment that came by/of Moses.

  • Faith that is in the blood of Jesus Christ abolishes the Law of Moses - see Ephesians 2:12-17.

Righteousness that the gift of faith automatically imputes to the believer establishes the law of faith even as it abolishes the law of Moses.

Love fulfills all commandments by God, whether commandments in the law of faith or commandments in the now abolished law of Moses.

So, the love of God personified as the Son of God sent to the world, fulfills both laws of faith and Moses.

Before shedding blood by death on the Cross, Jesus could not abolish but only fulfill the Law of Moses.

That is how come Jesus Christ (as the Love of God and before crucifixion) said in Matthew 5:17 KJV Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Since crucifixion, He has abolished/destroyed in His flesh that Mosaic law because Ephesians 2:15 KJV declares:
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

If you obeyed the spirit then would obey the law, for the spirit would not then cause you to disobey the law by killing, or by murdering, or by stealing. Even so, you can only obey the spirit if you have the spirit, in which case, because you think the law is discarded, you obviously do not have the spirit.

Nice try, but you are out in left field again. Walking in obedience to the Spirit has nothing to do with the law...

Romans 7:6
But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.

I have more of the Spirit in my little finger than you apparently do in your whole body, since you want to go there. The law does not prevent me from murdering or stealing or anything else, what prevents me from doing such things is my love for God which compels me to walk in obedience to Him so that I am pleasing to Him. Your theology is skewed.

The fact that I can accurately interpret the Scriptures, and you apparently cannot, is one of the marks of one who has the Spirit operating in one's life.

Walking in obedience to the spirit has nothing to do with the law? You just admitted that you do not murder, which is this law,

"You shall not murder. (Exodus 20:13 [NIV])

Yah...read it again, CG - it is quite obvious that your bias is running away with your brain and reading comprehension. The law that walking in obedience to the Spirit is concerned with is the law of Christ, NOT the 10 Commandments, which the passage clearly states..."now we are released from the law...of the written code." you do have some serious Scriptural flaws, "sir."

So obedience to the spirit is not exclusionary of the law, for how can one obey anything without first having a command to obey, or even disobey?

Your reasoning is straight out of the flesh, not the Spirit, CG. Did gravity ever give you a command not to violate it? Yet if you jump off of a cliff, you will most likely die, correct? The new law of Christ is not given as a "Thou shalt..." or "Thou shalt not..." Rather, Christ gave it to us like this, "If you want to live..." Again, you pride yourself on your feeble knowledge of the Scriptures, and claim that God has given you some kind of special revelation that you come to share with us here. Yet all you give is a third grader's understanding of Scriptures.

How could Adam and Eve have disobeyed if the command had first not been given, "thou shall not eat...".

True, but that has nothing to do with the 10 commandments that you are claiming has to do with believers today.

And so, obedience to the spirit is inclusionary of the very law that defines everything that is good or evil, and it is the spirit that causes obedience to that very law, because man himself cannot obey this law on his own.

More nonsense, even calvinistic nonsense. No where in the Scriptures is it stated that man cannot obey God unless His Spirit causes Him too, that is more of your earlier nonsense about universal Determinism that is NOT taught in Scripture anywhere. Just to show that you don't know what you are talking about, here...

Deuteronomy 30:11-15
 11   "For this commandment that I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it far off.
 12   It is not in heaven, that you should say, 'Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?'
 13   Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, 'Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?'
 14   But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it.
 15   "See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil.

Luke 1:5-6
5   In the days of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah, of the division of Abijah. And he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
6   And they were both righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and statutes of the Lord.

Philippians 3:4-6
4   though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more:
5   circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee;
6   as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.

Again, you need to go back, spend about three years studying the Scriptures, and then come back and show us that you have learned something that is in accordance with the truth of the Scriptures.

You err greatly in this matter, along with everything else you have vomited through your mouth.

Actually, it flows with the Spirit that guides it. The one vomiting up nonsense here that has been demonstrated as such, is only coming out of your mouth, and the fleshly bias that promotes it within your own carnal mind.

Have a nice day.

Somehow I have a carnal mind when I am the one saying that a man baptized in holy spirit becomes freed from sin and caused to obey the law perfectly, which is an incredible act of God, whereas you teach that the law has been discarded and does not need to be obeyed? You don't even realize your own folly and madness. It is you, who on the contrary, needs to learn the scriptures.

I think I'll get a Trump hat and wear it to the poll even though I don't plan to vote for Trump.

I don't generally carry a firearm, but I almost always have several more "up close and personal" items ready to "unholster."   ::whistle::

Acts 15:1  But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved."

This is what the Judaizers were teaching.   Paul's comment to Peter in Galatians 2:11 is not a joking matter.
