thats quite a nice thought . But jesus actually says to us 'if you being WICKED know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will God give Holy Spirit to those asking him.'<quoted text>
We all sin...and I believe there is a huge difference between "weakness and wickedness...the two W's. Weak would involve making an error and asking forgiveness from those you hurt BEFORE going to God....i.e., "leave you gift at the alter and go make peace with your brother and then return to me". Wicked is to keep making the error a practice. God is giving us the time now to make our amends and straighten our paths, self included. Lets all follow our perfect model, whom we should all be looking to, Christ. Just a thought.
Jesus tells us we are quite WICKED, and unless we are born again of spirit we can't SEE the kingdom of God." and unless we are born again of spirit and water we can't ENTER the kingdom of God.'
So this old human nature we inherited from Adam has to die, because its wicked.
and this is something the watchtower does not teach. that the flesh is opposed to the spirit. and we have to put to death the practices of the flesh by the spirit.
You are being taught that the 'born again of spirit' principle does not apply to you. But jesus says it does for he uses the words ' unless ANYONE is born again,...'And that ANYONE means ANYONE including YOURSELF.
