Why be obedient, at all?Hi Adam:
The reason why is the word of God tells us that this life style is forbidden by God. So, the problem comes down to being obediant to the word of God or man? Read Romans 1, this maybe of some help to answer your question. Thank you. Gary
According to you, we have absolutely no control, whatsoever, of our thoughts, actions, reactions, and speech, nor on the salvation granted us. Therefore, whether we're obedient or not makes no difference, at all. If I'm obedient, "God" will have compassion on me if He chooses to have compassion on me. And if I'm disobedient, "God" will have compassion on me if He chooses to have compassion on me. So, what's the point of it all?
How can anyone call themselves "saved" if we don't even know, for sure, we're saved? How can anyone say that they know for sure that "God" is going to have compassion on them?
