"Sinless Perfection" before God.
« on: Fri Jan 08, 2021 - 18:41:04 »

We have this verse given to us....

Matthew 5:48
 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

 And we have...

Genesis 17:1
 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

 And Christ Himself says....

Matthew 19:21
 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 And then we have this...

John 17:22-24 King James Version (KJV)

 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 So what does it mean.
