so you don't have to work?
having our eyes on following the law is counterproductive. what we keep our mind focused on will produce that thing.
we need to focus on the spirit of the law
not the letter of the law
loving God and our neighbor is the spirit of the law
the letter of the law hangs on it
leaving it open for God to be the judge ultimately ((yes))
not mans doctrine.
saving power for all
not all receive and believe
God equips all to be able to passively receive and believe
Christ does the ((work))
we embrace or deny.
matthew 10:33 "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
denying or receiving is not a (work of the law) method, we are not justified by works of the law. to receive or deny is not represented of salvation by works.
works is the law focused context.
whereas receiving/believing is activating the equipped grace to (((ALL))) that Christ died for. Christ equipped all through his dying for (ALL).
whether we use that equipping to receive and believe or deny is the question.
hunsinger does a great job of communicating and lays out a nice teaching.
This should not be on the welcomes board.
Yeah, well it would be nice if our brilliant admins would explain to us newbies how to start a new thread. I searched until I found a button and pushed it. Oh well, your cheery voice will be a warm welcome to the new crew.
