The Power Of The Law
  
I disagree. Heb 7:14 doesn't mention the Law - only the nature of the priesthood (Levitical vs. Melchisedec).--Jerry 4/27

Jerry
My mistake, I meant (Hebrews 7:12).
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law
Jesus is a new priesthood in the order of Melchizedek, correct?

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?--Josef

Josef
But don't you need to defend yourself, if your wrong? For if your wrong, there will be no Eternal Life.

It was Jesus who said, "If you want Eternal Life, Keep the commandments." Please,... I ask you take notice of the commandments Jesus gave in (Matthew 19: 16-19), and the fact that Paul uses one of those very commandments, when he gave his testimony in (Romans 7:7-12).

You say you have died to sin, but does your testimony have anything to do with keeping the commandments? No
Do any one of your teachers hold to Paul's testimony? No
Think about it brother.

I don't battle sin---josef on 4/27/17

Josef
That's why I hope you wake up, it's because you don't battle sin. I got the term "Wake up" from (Revelation 3:2) NIV. Revelation, where Jesus advised every one of the seven churches to "Repent".That's the same advise I give to you.

Jesus Christ was sent to save us from sin, sent as the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. Now if you believe Jesus Christ is the "Lamb of God", sent to save us from sin, wouldn't confession of sin be to the best way to show God you believe in him?


Favorite Translation Of Bible
  
The Bible is our study guide for the teachings we receive from the Holy Spirit. Before I was taught by the Holy Spirit, I read the Bible for entertainment, not for knowledge.

A wrong translation of a verse or passage really doesn't matter much when you know the Truth before you read it. I started out with the easy to read NIV, and I have used others made available when needed.

But I have found the KJV to be the best translation to find what the Holy Spirit had taught me. I discovered this fact when trying to prove my "KJV Only" friend wrong. While trying to prove him wrong, I proved him right, when I found many of the teaching I couldn't find in the NIV, in the KJV.


The Power Of The Law
  
"Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" ---josef

Josef
If Sin is in the world, and you still sin, have you overcome the world?

That sin in your life, the one you really battle with, may look like a curse, but it's really a blessing. Haven't you wondered why the sin is still there, after all these years?

It's a blessing, because when the power it had over you, the power which causes you to sin is gone, it's your sign, which tells you, you have been adopted by God, adopted as a son. (1 John 3:10)

Josef, I have a great hope for you, a hope you wake up in time.


The Power Of The Law
  
We must fight the good fight of faith and wrestle against temptation to sin, so that by God's power (Grace) we may become over comers--Jerry

Jerry
You must be speaking from your experience, for there is No way, you could have received this knowledge from one of the many man made doctrines. Their doctrines come from experience too, only their experience comes from those who merely start the race, and not from those who have finished.

They are not taught we are under the Law of Christ, that Law, God puts into their minds and writes on their hearts. When we say Law, they think we refer to the Law God gave Moses, not the Law of Christ (John 1:17).

Jesus did not take away the Law, he changed it (Hebrews 7:14).


The Power Of The Law
  
Josef
It's all about Love, not imagined... but real. Our love for God, and his love for us. Love that can only develop from a daily walk with God. A walk that's impossible, when we go through life with unforgiven sin.

Most believers, unknowingly, go through life separated from God, with only an occasional confession of sin, which can only temporarily restore the light. In this type of relationship, the love for God, needed to break this sin bondage, becomes impossible.

Stay in the light and this relationship will develop. Sin becomes less, when your love for God grows greater than your temptation to sin. Eventually sin dies.


The Power Of The Law
  
Josef
Believe me,.... though I understand why you may think I'm bragging,.... I don't think of myself more highly than I should. I overcame sin, not because I posess the strength of an Arc Angel, but because I possessed the love a son has for his Father.

You see for many years, I fought against sin as a man would fight against a foe. My strength against his strength, when the true strength against sin, comes from our love for God.

It's kind of like someone in a vain attempt to fight a vampire in a movie. They lose the battle when it's their strength against the vampires strength. When all they really have to do is show them the Cross, or throw open the curtains, and let the light in.


The Power Of The Law
  
(Romans 7:13).....But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good, that sin by the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.

Josef
I was once given a commandment like the one Paul mentions above. I didn't know why it was there, but it was. When I broke the commandment, God punished me. This went on for many years, but after I started following the Holy Spirit, the sin became exceedingly sinful.

Exceedly to the point, where one day after I sinned, I dropped to my knees in tears, crying like a baby for about and hour, as I sat alone with God, asking God to forgive me. Relief came, and ever since that day, I have not committed that, or any other sin.


The Power Of The Law
  

Josef
Great answer!
Did you notice (Galatians 3:23) says, those who need a School Master are Under The Law?

We are not under the Law after sin dies, but we are under the Law before sin dies. Paul says the same in (Romans 7:1).

And how do we know sin has died? (1 John 3:9-10) KJV
So it's True, "We are not under the Law", but it's only true,....of those who have been born of God.


Finish It Here_Feb 2017
  
Sir, Jeremiah writing by the Holy Spirit corrects you, "--John9346


John
First off.... you are not Jeremiah, and secondly you are not under the same covenant. And now I will correct you with the Son of God.

Matthew 7: 22-23) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Now if Jesus says he doesn't know them because they worked iniquity, and we come to the Father through the Son, God the Father doesn't know them either.


How Is God Love
  
John
As I said, I agree God does the choosing. But he chooses among those who walk with the Holy Spirit, and not according to how one lives in the womb of their mother.


How Is God Love
  
"Whosoever." doesn't mean everybody if it did there would be know sinners/evil doers..---john9346 on 4/13/17

John
Jesus taught, a man must be born again if he hopes to gain eternal life. (1 John 3:9-10) gives us a sign, a sign by which we will know when we have been born again. Jesus confirmed this in (John 8:34-35), where he taught those who commit sin, will not be adopted into the family of God.

Since you believe you are the "Whosoever" in (John 3:16), whosoever is used in both the passages I have given

Have you been born of God, according to the sign given in (1 John 3:9-10), or do you need to change these clearly written verses, to make it fit what you believe?


Ten Commandments Historical
  
To be honest Jerry, it's always puzzled me why folks who claim were not under the Law, fight to keep the Law. I guess the Law is for everyone else, but not for them.


How Is God Love
  
John
I agree,.... God chooses,... not us. But where I disagree with your doctrine, Is God making this choice before were even born.Yes, there are a few verses which support your doctrine, if you choose to exclude the rest of the Bible, as most doctrines do.

The verses you use in your predestination doctrine, are talking about the time in between when you receive the seed of God (Matthew 13) and when you are born of God (1 John 3:9-10). This time is much like being in the womb.

Church teachings have a powerful hold over those who follow them, if they believe in those teachers. Do your Church teachers, teach evolution,or are you alone in this thinking?

If they teach evolution, what denomination do you follow?


How Did Life Begin
  
But why would GOD not use similar tools to build all that exist.
---Samuelbb7 on 4/10/17


To me similar DNA points to the same creator. Years ago I could look at a Ford or Chevy, and tell at a distance, it was a Ford or Chevy. Each make, each model, were different. But because they had the same designers year after year, they were very similar.

Strange how we seem to make a mystery out of what should be obvious, to make the explainable, unexplainable. I think our friend StrongAxe just likes a good mystery.


How Did Life Begin
  
How can you know which one of them is REALLY true? --StrongAxe

StrongAxe
Go to any hospital intensive care unit, an you will see man can not survive unless all the systems of the body are working. Ask the doctor if man can live without a heart, brain, lungs, etc. If not, this proves man had to be created all at once.

Go to the delivery room, and you will see babies who were created though a reproductive process which required two participants, for recreating man. Both of which have different sexual organs.

Evolution is plausible?
For evolution to be plausible, the first human had to have survived more than a million years, waiting for the second human creation, so they could make more humans.

Evolution takes millennia--StrongAxe

StrongAxe
Science figured out long ago, if you throw many years at your hypothesis, you can teach your theories forever. A zillion years ago.....

What I can't figure out, is how you, as a Christian, except these unprovable man made theories, and reject Gods version, which can be easily proven today.

I spent some years, almost an atheist. And the one thing that keep me on the fence, was creation. I've always looked for the simple explanation for the unexplainable, and even then, I found the Bible version logical, and evolution totally illogical.

Google "Fruit fly" & "Evolution". You may find it interesting. When I was in school, they used the fruit to prove the theory of evolution.
