So you are saying that centuries ago, the world was, in fact, flat. Not merely believed to be flat, but in fact it WAS flat.
Facts do not change.
Historical point: when Columbus set sail on his voyage, no one was worried about falling off the edge of the world. They were worried about just how far the East Indies were, did they have enough food and water on board to make it, were there any sea monsters, etc, etc, etc. But no one except the ignorant peasants believed that the world was flat. About 23 centuries ago, the Greeks calculated the diameter of the Earth.
Yeah, and when they arrived at the present-day American continent, they called the natives "Indians" because they thought they were in India. Thus, we have the results of their "facts" to this day.

I'm not denying anyone mercy (I don't even have that kind of power to begin with). The foot of the Cross is open to all.
Neither am I a sinner...I was a sinner years ago, but not anymore. Neither do I do the same things that I one time did.
If I am still a sinner after having the Blood applied to my life, then my salvation is in vain.
To say that a person is still a sinner after receiving Christ, is to say that it is impossible to live right.
Again...Mr. Wildmon is not a liar and neither am I.
As for being a judge...I am not a judge, but I am a fruit inspector.
Oh my, do you really believe you do not sin anymore? By spending time on these post we are not reading Bibles, or praying, or helkping our neighbors, or caring for a sick friend, or calling someone, we are argruing and misunderstanding each other, and etc.....
We are ALL sinners and continue to fall short of God's glory. Yes, thank GOd for His son Jesus who forgives my sins......over and over and over.......once and for always!
But, to assume I am now not sinning..well, as much as Jeus blood pours over my sins and washes the cuicrcumstances away....I am still a sinner, but for HIM......careful careful

I do like the fruit inspector comment...the salvation in vain...okay...but, just because you don't do what you used to do does not mean you have nothing for which fellow believers need hold you accountable......

I didn't say that.

I am capable of sinning if I don't follow in His footsteps, and I have slipped and fell before, but as long as my sin is under the Blood then I am not classified as a sinner.

Actually in Columbus day most people believed that the world was flat. In the writings of Columbus he states that he learned the world was round from reading the book of Isaiah in the Bible. Below is an interesting link.

Isaiah said, in speaking of God, "It is He who sits above the circle of the earth..." (Isa. 40:22). In the context, of course, Isaiah is giving a discourse on the supreme sovereignty of God. But, in this verse, he has also given us a pearl of scientific foreknowledge. The Hebrew word he used for "circle" is the word khug, which literally means something with "roundness" or "sphericity." The people of Isaiah's day (and for many generations to come) thought that the Earth was flat, not round or spherical (remember the skeptics about 500 years ago in Christopher Columbus' day?)! Isaiah said just the opposite, however. How did he know approximately 2700 years ago? Was it just a lucky guess?

Now come on, don't confuse the atheists with FACTS, don't you know they have the lock on all knowledge?

Very well said! But I add the scripture below.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1Co 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

He said that because of the old man of sin that he was warring against on a daily basis. We will always have to deal with our fleshly desires, but if we follow the Spirit then our flesh will be overruled by the power of God.

It's not impossible to live a clean life and to be pure in the spirit.
