I like that. even more ironic is that remove man from the equation and God can be seen everywhere and the devil nowhere. Man is reaping what he has sown yet we still are so arrogant in our perceived superiority. we are the only ones of God's creation that cant seem to follow the plan.(T) PEACE

Nope, not without help from God himself.

<quoted text>This, unlike any of your posts on the Bible, actually makes some sense and has some value. I have no problem if you wanna stick to recipees. And at least those when you plagerize them it is kind of expected. Just don't leave a bunch of steps out like you leave out most the verse when quoting scripture:)

Btw...and I know I am going to regret this....but what is a "Grumpy Grooch P"? The 'grumpy' I know and normally I factor in that like 2/3rds of your posts won't make any sense but for some reason this one has me curious. Did you just string letters together or is there actually something called a Grumpy Grooch P? I'll be the first to admit my ignorance on the subject if there is

@Drew....sorry had to respond here for space. I thought you made some excellent points in your post to hu about not believing the devil can make people sin {tempt maybe but certainly man is still responsible for his choices) and that a big pitfall for believers is feeling more righteous than another. often imo that will manifest itself in two ways. 1) Everything i believe must be right so anyone who doesnt agree with me must disagree with God or 2) "Look at how much i do for others, guess i just love Jesus more" I have seen both a decent amount in my life. I did have one question though. when it says we all will sin and fall short imo that is talking about why people need Christ for salvation because some thought they were justified by works of law and isnt directed at those who already turned to Christ as technically we arent to sin at all after that. obviously we still will but the msg would never be its ok sometimes. whats ur take on who that verse is directed to?
Well, generally speaking, I would say that it is never okay even though it is inevitable that we will. That's when the Holy Spirit will do His job and remind us of what Christ did for us.

You see, no two people are going to agree on every point. And one who thinks of him(her)self as more righteous than another or only their beliefs are valid, is being deceived because, if not for what God has done, none are righteous and as far as I know, God has yet to reveal all things to anyone.

The Bible teaches us to put on the mind of Christ. If we do that, then we will think like Him more and our propensity to sin will decrease.

No argument there. Still one has to wonder if this still is the price of perifity or just the consequence of free will or both or neither? What was it about man that made him suceptible to temptation and more so to do evil almost for the sake of doing so? Was intelligence a curse or maybe it is the lack of it and there are intellectually superior species throughout the galaxies that God didnt have to intervene for? Why do animals often display natural instincts often superior to man as they dont kill for no reason and most take care of their young better than we do. We know man paid the price for sin but why did he sin originally and why are we still so flawed? Shouldnt original sin been done after the Sacrifice?(T) PEACE

Then the claims of Christianity are false and Jesus did nothing for no one.
Don't see the connection. It's always been by faith by believing. In this age, though, it's by His gift of grace. It took an immeasurable amount of grace for God to do what He did for you and me, and everyone else for that matter. No one can earn it, it is a gift. Jesus Christ paid the price.

Where does it say in God's Word that quote: "GOD being God- probably gave him a chance to choose to change his way"?
Book, chapter, verse, I've never read anything like that in God's Word and I'd like to see where it says that?
I have never studied the topic before and googled ~ I can not give you chapter and verse if I have not looked~

No problem.

Are you going to have some time off for the holidays? I'm looking forward to catching up on some rest.

Have a great night. I just got in a little while ago from reffing so I'm going to call it a night. Hope your tomorrow is even better than today.
