The devils believe, too, so now, what? Remember that verse?Reject the stipulations? You are very confusing. Jesus died for ALL our sins. To believe this , there are NO stipulations for any of us to do but BELIEVE.That is the ONLY stipulation.
And what verse can you provide that proves that we're forgiven of our present and future sins, even if we don't repent of them? And if we're required to repent of our present and future sins, then how, exactly, are they already forgiven? What mistake did I make in the verses I quoted, because as of now, all I'm reading are personal opinions.
In every post.BLL, do you ever speak from the HEART,
Is that what you would have said to Paul, or our anointed Savior, when they were explaining how their audience were mistaken in how, or even what, they believed? Paul told those on Mars' Hill that they "ignorantly" worshiped their god, but that the true "God," that he knew and was preaching to them, would wink at their ignorance. And our anointed Savior told the woman at the well that she knew not what she believed, for salvation was of the Jews. How is what I'm sharing any different?or does it always have to be 'your interpretations of scriptures,or give us a a Test on Scriptures, so you can say WRONG.
What did our anointed Savior say, recorded at Matthew 5:48? What did Peter preach, recorded at 1Peter 1:15-16? What did the author of Hebrews teach, recorded at Hebrews 6:1? What did Paul teach, recorded at 2Corinthians 7:1? It matters not what I, or you, feel. Also, none should lessen, or outright disregard, the lessons found in the bible.Or do you feel like you will have to be perfect in everyway, a ROBOT.
I consider perfection the greatest expression of love we can give one another. You, apparently, see perfection as robotic performances. I see perfection as a goal to be attained. You see perfection as impossible. I see perfection as a worthwhile goal to try, to the best of my ability, to achieve. You, apparently, would rather believe that perfection is impossible to achieve, even though we're told to become as such. To me, I believe that you, and everybody else, deserves to be treated perfectly. But, I can't do that unless I try, to the best of my ability, to become perfect.
Yes, I teach my children that perfection is a most noble goal to achieve, and that they should try, to the best of their ability, to achieve it. But, I'll never take free-will from them. If my younger children grow up and decide to become atheists, I'll be disappointed, but I'll still love them.Is this the way you teach your children? Do you take away their 'free will?
