No Mark I am not perfect, but have been cleansed by the blood of Christ through repentance and faith proven by deeds, I have no plank in my eye, my obedience has been fulfilled,2 cor 10-6 and I walk a holy life unto God, thus I have every right to voice what the Lord is teaching me about the narrow road. Luke 13-24. I nailed all my vile sins to the cross with Christ in repentance, which most here do not understand,Gal2-20/Gal 5-24 I urge all of you to repent(2 Cor 7-10-11, flee Babylon,(false system) (false teachers)love the truth, forsake the world and its vain attractions.

Those who stand against the popular things of the world will be hated!


Does Sin Have To Stop
  
Because all have Sinned!





The Doctrine of Original Sin can only be proven by Conjecture. NOTHING in Scripture states exclusively that the Nature of man was corrupted in Adam and then handed down to his posterity. The false teachers like to use Romans5:12 to Suggest that Sin was handed down to all men. BUT the Passage merely states that Death spread to all men, Because ALL SINNED! Placing the responsibility of the sin directly where it was intended to be placed. On the free will choice of man to CHOOSE to Sin and take the similar path of Adam in rebellion.

Sometimes standing against the popular things of the world makes a strong witness, especially to all you professing Christians, who are still In your vile sins, thinking you are saved because you said the prayer, or went to a Billy Graham rally and accepted Jesus. The gospel is Clear about loving the world and its pleasures, if I was to go to a sporting event, I would only go to pass out my repentance tracts, steering people away from the dead church, which resembles more of the world than the house of God! telling people they can sin like the devil and go to heaven at the same time! Either you are hot for the Lord, or you are not, lukewarm wont make it.

Gradual santification:The HUGE Problem with this teaching is it's LACK of support in the Bible. Scripture Clearly teaches that in initial Repentance the Old man is Crucified with Christ, once and for all, NOT to be repeated, the body of sin Done away with and the bondage broken. Since no 'inbred' sin exists the Mortal body is able to Serve God PURE of heart in the Power of the Spirit. Sanctification and Justification happen simultaneously, then Real Growth can begin as the New man is Born and the body purged of all defilement and overflow of wickedness.

Of course God grants mercy to whom He wills, that is a given! But are you saying God gives His precious mercy to an unrepentant sinner, still in thier vile sins, and hopefully will clean this person up later, because he was born depraved?
God grants mercy to those who have repented, Acts 3-19, first, stopped thier vile sins against God, and hope He will forgive Him, I just cant see how a vile child molester getting saved at a Billy Graham rally, still a vile sinner, just covered by the provision, and hope God grants him mercy, while he is still IN his sins, he should be in prison.

I would steer clear of the organized church system today, many are death traps, preaching the lie, such as original sin, substitution, OSAS, Calvinism and all its offshoots,moral transfer, and much more. Find a few strong believers if you can to dig into the word with, expose the wolves in the system who Do NOT preach repentance and faith proven by deeds! 2 Corin 7-10-11. The true church is a small remnant, The road is narrow, you must strive and agonize to enter. Luke13-24. Matt 10-22, You must endure to the end to be saved.If your church is teaching truth, stay in it,if not expose thier lies, then flee Babylon, lest you share in her sins. Rev 18-4.

Professing Christians love the things of the world more than the things of God, they listen to the worlds music, addictd to thier favorite sports teams, spend more time playing vile video games,books,filled with witchcraft, sex, etc.. etc.
No urgency to repent(2 Corin 7-10-11,or defend and contend against all the false teachers lining the pulpits today. I dont think paul was giving Christians permission to induldge in sports as it is today, he was giving an analogy, on enduring in the faith, true saints have no time for this, use Pauls analogy to dig deep into the word, and endure to the end to remain pure and holy, seperated from the world, and its vain attractions.


Sins To Stop Once Saved
  
NO! Justification and Sanctification happen at the same time, Rom5:1-2, 1Cor6:11, Acts26:18-21
You cannot seperat the process.


Sins To Stop Once Saved
  
I will kindly bow out of this blog, I am not teaching sinless perfection, in any way, just repentance and faith proven in the word. true repentance purifies the heart, 2 Cor 7-10-11, Acts 3-19, Isa 55-7, and many more, the soul who sins shall die, Eze, 18-20. Jesus came to save us out of our sins, and I just cant see the holy spirit dwelling in a vile sinner waiting to get born again, then repent of thier vile sins. If most of you are still in a church, that teaches original sin, substitution,osas, and teaches you get saved IN your sins you are in great delusion. 2 Thess 2-10-11.


Sins To Stop Once Saved
  
What about Ezk14:14, Noah, Daniel, and Job...... Delivered by thier own righteousness. Many others also, no sin is recorded, the Prophets, Joseph, Joshua..... David is a very poor example to site, since you reap what you sow and in his case the sin, although forgiven, ruined his life. Moses on the other hand showed anger, is that listed as a sin unto death? I don't think so.
So what are they really saying?? All Christians wallow in every vile sin, but that's ok because no one is perfect? its a lousily argument.

No, please dont acuse me of something you dont know, I am not an SDA, I stand aloof of all the false teachings coming out of the churches today, I just read my bible and obey it,This working dynamic faith, is a living, breathing, obedient faith, that produces a pure heart, and spirit filled life, that is required to be saved, these works or deeds of faith, prove we have been transformed into a new creation, by walking in obedience to the word of God, not making faith out to be a works of the law,

I gave up TV and cable almost 2 years ago, when I repented and turned to God for mercy.
Now I spend that time memorizing scriptures, sharing the truth as God leads me, defending the purity of the gospel, and digging deep to build a strong foundation, most who profess Christ, know more about thier favorite tv program, or sports stars, but most are stil in thier vile sins and worldliness as I was, oblivious of the wrath to come upon them, wake up! Repent, and seek the mercy of God before its too late! Read Rev ch 18, if that doesnt move you,,nothing will, also James 4-4. its a narrow road, few of the few will be saved, come out of your church, if they are preaching the lie and resemble the world more than the house of God. Obedience matters!

Lee, are you a Calvinist? If you are then I can see why your doctrine is off!

Luk 16:15 And He said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
1Jn 2:15 Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
1Jn 2:16 because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1Jn 2:17 And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever.
true spirit filled followers of Christ, will avoid these popular attractions and pastimes, those who are lukewarm love thier sports and worldly attractions.

Scott,
Martin Luther was a reprobate false teacher, no such thing as the great exchange,substitution, no sin was transfered to Christ, He died as a sin offering, Heb9-14, to ransom us from the corrupting infuence of sin. mark 10-45.


What Is God's Grace
  
Natural sin, Substitution, Moral Transfer, Imputed Righteousness and Eternal security are NOT taught in the Bible, nor were they entertained by the Pre-Augustinian writers of the Christian Faith. At best, these Notions are based on pure Conjecture. Study the record and discover that each of these tenets were INVENTED at some Point in History LONG after the Early Church passed away. Most of the

Most professing Christians see nothing wrong with mixing with the world, most are still in thier sins, lukewarm, and love the world more than God, so mixing with the worlds pleasures and pastimes is no big deal to them. I know we are surrounded by hate, evil, lust, godless people who hate Christ, etc..we need to stand against the popular things of the world, and sports and all its glitter and glitz its the golden calf of America. We are in the world but not OF it, unless you are in compromise, if so, repent(your first works) and seek His mercy. Have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, tell everyone how wrong those things are. Eph 5-11.

Lee,
Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Thus when Paul wrote Ephesians 2:8-10 the works he is referring to are works of the flesh or works of the law which we are not saved by. He is most definitely NOT negating obedient faith. We are saved by the effectual working of God on our heart which we voluntarily put to use by a working faith. If we are disobedient then, we simply receive the GRACE OF GOD to no effect!


What Is God's Grace
  
repentance has been redefined to simply mean confess and admit you are a sinner, and faith has been redefined to simply mean trust.
Jud1:4there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Now the reason that works done apart from God are vain (works of the flesh/law) is that they only serve to clean the outside of the cup. God wants the inside of the cup cleansed.
