This is the best one G..
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; Colossians 2:14
See how the law is contrary to us? Even the most sincere follower of Jesus cannot follow those laws perfectly. We would all be doomed and God knew that. he didnt want us to perish so Jesus came and done what we could not do..FOR US.
So all the commandments are gone, right ?

Then there are no sins.
That means there is nothing to be forgiven.
That means that Jesus saved everyone whether they like it or not, whether they know it or not, whether they believe it or not.

<quoted text> No, but many true christians have fallen away into willful sin.
We have to understand the (noun) version of SIN..and the (VERB) ACTIONS of sin..This is very significant because the Greek word HAMARTIA is a noun, while HAMARTANO is a verb. A noun denotes a person, place, or thing, while a verb describes the action of a noun. Therefore, in all but one instance in the book of Romans, the words “sin” and “sins” describe man’s tendency toward sin and not the individual acts of sins themselves. If you think of the word “sin” in these chapters as denoting the act of sin.. Lying, cheating, stealing, adultry ect..ect..is a VERB or result and action of SIN. It was an eye opener to me and I hope it helps you understand. God Bless

Jesus died ONCE for ALL but people have to receive it. If A gift is offered to you, You have to reach out to receive it..right?:)

NO..they are not gone. The purpose for why they were given is still in effect today as they were when Moses first received them..They were given to show mankinds need for a Savior. Some people have not seen their need for a Savior..the Law still stands for those people and even to Christians who still continue to keep themselves there, according to scripture.

Did this alleged "new covenant" wipe out everything in the OT when Jesus was born, baptised, arrested, died, ressurected or ascended ?
Jesus' birth was important but that is NOT what saved us..It was His death,burial and ressurection. Do you care to hear a song written about this very thing? I believe that you will like..Take a quick break and enjoy..Skip the ad..Its a great song with a great beat to it also..an added plus :) Let me know if you like it..Ok?

Doesn't have to say it, it's obvious. In any case, Ezekiel wasn't speaking from the Law here... as a prophet, he was a mouthpiece of The Lord and the Lord was just keepin' it REAL. Just because it was OT doesn't mean that somethings mentioned there aren't in effect... prophecies, words of wisdom, etc. are good examples. Here is another cross reference that's keepin' it REAL from the OT.

REVELATION

Rev 1:9 (Part 2)

"I, John, your brother AND COMPANION in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus."

__________

1. AND COMPANION - Fellow partaker, co-partner...

A. Much can be said about Companionship... in this particular Revelation verse John is referring to being a companion in the brotherhood of Christ. Now, the brotherhood is not just a list of faithful men who have given their lives and devotions to Christ but also consists of faithful women as stated in part 1 yesterday. Now anyone can say that they believe in Jesus and that they are a Christian or some other follower of Christ, but the devils believe also AND TREMBLE. But it is he or she that does the Will of God, even in the face of persecution, that is a true follower of Christ. Please note that persecution does not always come just from unsaved folk or those who have gone back from Christ... but persection also comes from those within who say that they are "in Christ" (duh). That is why there are so many denominations and fractures within each denomination <---all of those divisions and fractures have manifested itself over the past 2 milleniums as denominations.

(1) I have to point out that an unsaved person can be just as much a blessing as other fellow partakers in Christ. So what's the diff then? There is very little difference between a person who is unsaved or backslidden... and a person who says that they are "in Christ" and says all of the right cliche's YET obey not the Gospel of God but turns the Grace of God as an excuse for lasciviousness.---> "Hey, I'm once saved always saved... I can do what I want... saved by Grace not of works!(Eph 2:8,9)" Uh, nooooo, that's not the whole of the story put into context. One has to read further into verse 10 & 11 of that same infamous quotation. Now the holy scriptures does not contradict itself as some suppose.. if one believes the scriptures then they will abelieve what our brother & companion, Apostle James had said a long time ago that faith, being without works is dead also... w/o proper understanding of those two scripture one can take the Grace of God in vain.

(1) Now someone may say to themselves, if Believers' sin, then how can they be a true follower of Christ? If a person makes sin a HABITUAL lifestyle (that is, not doing the Will of the Father) then he or she is not a true follower of Christ OR they remain backslidden "until" they repent. And btw, repentance in not a couple of hail Mary's and the like. For example, say a person who claims they are a Christian and they are living with a girlfriend (okay, none of my bee's wax but using this as an example)... or they are a homosexual or whatever.... then how can that be The Will of God when the scriptures speaks so clearly on such matters? Now if one says they repent but are still co-habitating with their girlfriend then it is just a matter of words and not deeds... How can they be a companion of Christ? Rather they are a companion of their girlfriend. Repentance means basically means to take action and leave that situation ---> that is what one "fruits of repentance" means. But yes, all Believers, unfortunately will trip up and miss the mark but should make every effort to get back into right relationship with God through repentance in the Name of Jesus Christ who is our advocate. Didn't someone on this thread recently say, "The Name of the Lord is a strong tower the righteous run into it and they are safe?"

REVELATION

Rev 1:9 (Part 2 continued)

"I, John, your brother AND COMPANION in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus."

__________

...cont

a. Now who is better? A person who is unsaved that will not hit their wife when they get angry or a person who claims salvation in Christ and lose control when they get angry and hits their wife? The answer is quite obvious... the unsaved person will be more blessed of God than the Believer who claims Once Saved Always Saved because the scriptures clearly says to us about loving our wives and a man who loves his wife, loves himself. Unless the "Saved" person repents and changes his ways then he will end up being cast out into outer darkness also, where there will be "weeping and gnashing" of teeth simply because he obeys not the gospel of God.

b. Believers are no better than nons or the backslidden... the only difference is The Blood of Christ, Faith & Obedience to Christ.

* Jesus: "Therefore everyone (anybody) who hears these words of Mine and PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the Rock.

(a warning from The Lord)...But everyone (anybody) who hears these words of mine AND DOES NOT PUT THEM INTO PRACTICE is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Not all Christians agree on the meaning of Daniel/Revelation and Biblical prophicies esp. concerning the "end of world":
PRETERISM is a Christian eschatological view that interprets prophecies of the Bible as events which have already happened. Daniel is interpreted as events that happened in the second century BCE while Revelation is interpreted as events that happened in the first century A.D. Preterism holds that Ancient Israel finds its continuation or fulfillment in the Christian church at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.
HISTORICISM says that Biblical prophecies provide us with a broad view of history, as well as an explanation of the religious significance of historical events. Historicists attempt to identify prophetic passages with major events in history.
FUTURISM, parallels may be drawn with historical events, but most eschatological prophecies are chiefly referring to events which have not been fulfilled, but will take place at the end of the age and the end of the world. Most prophecies will be fulfilled during a global time of chaos known as the Great Tribulation and afterwards.
IDEALISM, also known as "spiritual" or "symbolic", the events described in prophecy are neither past, present, nor future, but are representative of larger ideals and principles. Eschatological prophecy deals with the ongoing struggle between the forces of light and darkness, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. Its message is purely a spiritual one, an allegory of the spiritual path, which is equally relevant in all ages and for all people.
Why couldn't a person believe in all of these? Some prophecies occurred in a matter of moments and some much later... some were allegorical as stated to relate to a physical situation. When one completely take on one of the views or perhaps just a couple views... then it is a limited view IMHO.

OK.
If the "New Covenant" eliminates all the OT then where are the new sins specifically listed in the NT ?
Nope... just the civil and ceremonial parts of The Law of Moses... but not the moral code portion. You know, Noah found Grace in the sight of God (Gen 6:8) and was justified by faith...(Hebrews 11:7)

@ G...

"(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law ARE WRITTEN ON THEIR HEARTS, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.)

...This will take place on the day when God will judge men’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares."

Romans 2:14-16

There's a couple more like this I think.
