Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof."
    (Ro.13:12-13).

    These people had previously believed and had been baptized into the Body. So Paul is not telling them to do that, as you imagine. You are up to your old tricks again and they are getting old and boring. You said that 1 John 1:9 is written to unbelievers even though John tells us exactly who received his first epistle:

    "I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake"
    (1 Jn.2:12).

    And I will ask again. Can you name even one recognized theologian who agrees with you that the words at 1 John 1:9 are addressed to unbelievers?
    Ask me as many times as you like, Jerry. I will never agree with you that believers walk in darkness, and I will never agree that believers put on the Lord Jesus Christ by setting their affections on things above.

    So, my response to you is that you are more boring than I am.

    Besides which....you are not setting your affections on things above when all you seem capable of doing is charging believers with committing works of darkness...wantonness, drunkenness and rioting. Doesn't sound much like new creatures to me.

    Your ideas are ridiculous because according to you even though Paul accused Peter of not walking according to the truth of the gospel you say that he was walking in the light!

    You have lost touch with reality!

    How can someone be saved and safe in Christ, including being justified from all things and granted full and free access to God (per Paul), and yet risk not seeing the Lord for not pursuing peaceableness or holiness enough (per Hebrews)?

    How can one risk not seeing the Lord for not pursuing peaceableness and holiness, when Paul says the believers holiness is actually Christ's, and peace is a fruit of His Spirit?

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    So you don't think that those who received the Hebrew epistles had accesss to God despite what they are told here?:

    "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh"
    (Heb.10:19-20).

    Of course the word "holiest" is not in regard to the most holy place in the Temple because only the Levitical high priest had access there, and only once a year. The word "holiest" at Hebrews 10:19-20 refers to the dwelling place of the LORD. And the "throne" in the following verse is speaking of the heavenly throne:

    "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need"
    (Heb.4:16).

    I get an idea that you have never even read the book of Hebrews since you remain ignorant about these facts.

    I just thought that I would show you that they had access to the heavenly throne but you don't care.

    Who else but those in the Body have access to the Most Holy in heaven?

    You think that you rightly divide but all you prove is that you can't tell the difference between heavenly things and earthly things.

    Pitiful!

    You sure do a lot of accusing. How about you tell me exactly what Peter did to be accused by Paul of not walking according to the truth of the Gospel? Tell me EXACTLY what it was....specifically.

    I'll wait.

    I get an idea you are having some personal problems in your life, Jerry, that you have become so divisive of late.

    All men now have access through Christ's death on the cross, but not all men are baptized by the Spirit into the body of Christ.
