Quotes following are from Robert:
If you need written instructions to live the Christian life then you don't have the Spirit of Christ.
The destruct of your reasoning is that you use written instructions to convince you that you don't need written instructions. You did not make this conclusion from a non-Biblical source that I can see, nor have you ever quoted a non-Biblical source that tells you what the Spirit of Christ is to begin with and what constitutes having it and evidencing it. Your reasoning can be portrayed pictorially as follows:
What you have is a bad case of Biblcism
What I have is a good case of recognizing the written Word of God as inspired and therefore of value.
You love the law because you think that you are able to obey it.
I love the law because it testified to my Saviour and lets me know how much I need Him.
You are absolutely on a manic high about telling everyone here that they love the law because they obey it, an understanding everyone here recognizes more than you that they cannot, that He already did. Yawn.
Paul said, "Do you not hear the law?
You've got that wrong. Here's what he said in Galatians:
Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
No one disputes this except you. You construct straw men out of every one of us and just bludgeon us to stumps. He is not saying scripture is a law simply because it is a scripture, to shun it. He is discussing the correct perspective in which to undertand the law vs faith in the context of our salvation.
Tell me, are you obeying the scriptures?
No, I read scripture more and more to fill myself more and more with God's word, that I may obey Him
more and more, not obey scripture more and more. Scriptures reference my obedience journey, they point me to Him, they give understanding of what obedience evidences. I am the obedient of God, not the obedient of scripture, yet you corner everyone on this forum into this trap that you have set for them, designating that they obey scriptures just by reading them, as if they find their salvation in them, when they reveal their salvation in God alone.
Are you doing everything that the scripture is telling you to do, or do you kind of pick and chose?
Well, are you doing everything the Spirit is telling you to do or do you kind of pick and choose? Please, Robert, you've got to be kidding.
The scripture says to love God with all of your heart mind and strength and you neighbor as yourself. Are you doing that one?
I'm sorry, but I guess the extrapolation of your argument here is that since you walk by the Spirit, and the rest of us only read this essentially worthless scripture, not knowing anything about God's Holy Spirit of course, or that we are to walk by His Spirit, that you are the only one that lives perfectly, is that correct? When you walk by the Spirit every day, have you completely shut out your flesh? It is you who is the one who truly puts himself under law, Robert, the law of shunning written scripture.
Your problem is that you don't want to believe that you are a sinner.
Yeah, sure. That doesn't dignify a response.
Paul said that the law is for the unsaved.
Paul said Christ crucified is for the unsaved.
I say that the law is for the religious that do not have the Spirit.
Well, let's see.....the law was certainly for Christ, he kept it perfectly, He indeed had the Spirit.....what a religious hypocrite He was. You're right, this is something only you
