Too Much Bickering
" Is this what it looks like to be a Christian? Is this a picture of the Gospel?" Of course not, love is the picture of the gospel. And "Love suffers long and is kind,.. is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked,.. bears all things,.. endures all things." Ref 1Co 13:4-7

"Abrahams Bosom also being Paradise?" Is what I question. Whether a person lives after death is another debate. Kathr all I need as concerning this discussion are the bcv's I will look them up and read them. If Luke 16:22-31 is your only reference, then I suppose it is simply a matter how those verses are interpreted, and what one has been given to believe. Thanks

"Josef, the words Abraham's Bosom is used once in scripture. It is used as one of MANY TERMS used to describe a place where those who have passed go." Kathr what are you basing that statement on?
"I'm sure if you read a d pray about it, the Holy Spirit our TEACHER will illuminate your understanding." I would be happy to Kathr, please lead me to the verses I should read, If relevant I am quite certain that I will be enlightened. If not, I am more than willing to leave you to your beliefs.

Impossible To Sin
"So Paradise AKA Abrahams Bosom"
Where in scripture is Abraham's bosom referred to as paradise, or paradise as Abraham's bosom? Kathr please document your statement. Thanks

Impossible To Sin
"Why do believers, who are not under Gods Law, call themselves Law Breakers/Sinners, when sin is the transgression of the Law?"
I look forward to reading the responses.
"If they are incapable of sin, wouldn't it be impossible to be a sinner?" Yes.
There are two classes of people in the world today, sinners and saints.

Wearing Jewellery A Sin
"Is wearing jewellery and make up a sin will you be judged for that?" No.

The Power Of The Law
"But don't you need to defend yourself, if your wrong?
David wrong has no defense, and right needs no defense.
"Do any one of your teachers hold to Paul's testimony?"
I have only one teacher, and Paul's testimony, If it is a statement of truth, was inspired of Him.
" if your wrong, there will be no Eternal Life."
To know the Father and Jesus as the one sent, is eternal life, and this life is in His Son. The Holy Spirit seals me unto the day of redemption. And I know Jesus is able to keep me from falling, and to present me blameless before Him in the glorious presence of the Father. I am entirely comfortable and confident in what I've been given to believe. Are you?

The Power Of The Law
"Josef That's why I hope you wake up, it's because you don't battle sin." David Christ in me, is my hope of glory. I abide in Him, and again, in Him there is no sin. Why should I spend my time battling something that I am dead to? When the Father lead me to His Christ, by His grace I acknowledged myself a sinner in need of His salvation, thus confessing my sin. He then lead me to repentance, as an empowered turn from the kingdom and power of darkness, to the kingdom and power of His dear son, cleansing me from all sin. David this is simply a response to you concerning my position in Christ, and my relationship with the Father. It is not meant as an argument, nor do I feel any need to defend myself. I simply love sharing.

The Power Of The Law
David what is it about the statement "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?", or any other statement that I've made, that gives you the impression that I need to :o)"wake up"? I don't battle sin, I focus on and embraced the righteousness of God through Christ, for His word abides and endures within me. My hope, is in Christ.

The Power Of The Law
"If Sin is in the world, and you still sin, have you overcome the world?"
My belief is as it is written, Jesus has taken away the sins of the world. With the world, as used here, representing the inhabitants of the planet that believe, adheres to, trust in, and relies on, Him. I do believe, without question, that He is the Son of God, referred to, for sins sake, as the lamb of God. I believe Jesus was the atoning sacrifice for sin. Therefore yes David, I know that I have overcome the 'world', as in this sensually based system of things with its rules and adornments. Adornments that entice and seduce the senses, and rules conforming to and dependent upon sensual dictates and passions.

Bound By Ten Commandments
Barb both Jesus and "Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which does those things shall live by them." "But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that does them shall live in them." And "as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: Christ hath redeemed us, [as believers], from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:" See 1 John 4:8-21. Love fulfills the requirements of law, while faith honors the Son. The question is not whether the law is in force, but whether the believer is bound by the law?

The Power Of The Law
Re:"Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." How is this done? "The word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one." How did we overcome? "[We] overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of [our] testimony" Who are we? "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" How is this victory obtained? "Whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith."

Bound By Ten Commandments
I am unfamiliar with any denominational teaching concerning this. However, In agreement with Father's word. "I through the law, am dead to the law, that I might live unto God." For the Christ, through The Law of liberty, has freed me from the law of sin and death, and I will not be entangled again with that yoke of bondage. I've been delivered from the law, to serve in the newness of the Spirit. Therefore I do consider myself "dead to sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus".

The Power Of The Law
David, by the way, I do believe you, I have no reason not to. What would be the purpose of your lying to me. Who am I. I can take you at your word because I believe, as it is written, the believer can do all thing through Christ, which strengthens them. I believe that with the Father, all things are possible, to them that believe. That's why I said in my previous post, good for you. That wasn't a dig.

The Power Of The Law
David, and I never said you were bragging, I took what you said then, as now, as an explanation of how you overcame sin in an attempt to help me. I understand the concept, It is the love of the Father that has enabled me to accept His word that Jesus took upon Himself the sin of the world, and that His presence in the world signified the fulfillment of the law and the prophets. That their purpose was complete in Him, for those of us who believe. As one regenerated spiritually, and renewed mentally from above, I know that I can not sin because I understand that to sin under the covenant of grace is to miss the mark of my high calling, in Christ. I hit that mark when I, by His love and grace, acknowledged and confessed Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

The Power Of The Law
I have not committed that, or any other sin. Good for you David. You have obviously reached a point that the Father has yet to bring me to. Personally Father has shown me not to consider myself more highly than I should. For like the rich man who came to Jesus sincerely believing that he had kept the law, Jesus loving him, gently pointed out to him that as earnestly as he had attempted, and perhaps successfully, kept the letter of the law, he unfortunately failed miserably when it came to the spirit of the law. David I'm not suggesting that you have done the same, I'm simply saying that I know that I have failed. Therefore I look to the faith of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice to justify me, rather than the law, kept or otherwise.
