i sure can't argue with any of this, but what the heck, i'll try anyhow -lol:<quoted text>
Thank God for the Spirit!
do you think folk truly understand what is meant by do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:29-32
I believe when practised, that... is true redemption.
meaning, many claim much when it comes to themselves being the chosen of the Christian Faith.
It is my custom to share and not to debate The Word, for that has always been and will remain the same forever, regardless of how folk might try to analyse. It can never be anything different.
Holy is holy... Spirit or Word.
Religions separate for their own, but no one can claim God, any more than prove.
Thank you for sharing
you said - "I believe when practised, that... is true redemption"
to this, i would say that it's more of the fruit or manifestation of redemption, but redemption itself is a gift from The Redeemer and can't be earned in any way, shape or form.
i think you know this, partner, but i gotta do what i do:-)
