Re: The Depth of Sin

I think the scripture answers part of your question with a resounding yes, it is possible for a child of God to be deceived and be in sin as Jesus and others clearly taught, yet it is my opinion he or she will fully know it. Please explain the contradiction. If it is possible for a child of God to ...

Re: The Depth of Sin

If the depth and deception of sin were not both very great and very settle, why are believers constantly warned about it? Why are we told to be constantly on guard? A watchman does not fear the enemy they can see and are prepared for.

The Depth of Sin

This is more of a philosophical question that I do not think can be answered with a simple Bible verse. Perhaps I am wrong. The question is, do we fully realize the depth and scope of sin? I am not asking what sin does, but sin itself. Do we fully understand the deception it hides under? Do we recog...

Re: Original/Ancestral/Inbred Sin

You will need to supply the scripture that says "we GET INTO CHRIST by belief alone". Rom 6:3 says..."Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" We are baptized into Christ...of course baptism without faith is pointless. Acts 16:31 Believe on t...

Re: Original/Ancestral/Inbred Sin

Thanks for the response. You are welcome. I try to be polite and when possible give replies that are thoughtful and complete. Some more thoughts, in order for a person to maintain that faith in Christ that saved them from something their working in flesh is not required? Is not man's flesh led by h...

Re: Original/Ancestral/Inbred Sin

How does one get in that position, by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. They do not become righteous first. The sinner (confessing Christ as Lord and Savior) is seen as righteous in God's eyes, perhaps not man's eyes, as a result of faith in Christ. ( I trust I do not have to list all the B...

Re: Original/Ancestral/Inbred Sin

In Him, we are as righteous as God. If we are not as righteous as God, we are not in Him. It may be mere a technicality, but we are righteous IN HIM, we are not in Him because we are righteous. I agree. So where are those who are not righteous? Somewhere besides "in" Christ. No, I do not believe yo...

Re: WHAT'S WRONG WITH BEING PERFECT?

Is there any implication that He was no longer the Word after taking on flesh? If anything, He gave up the His divinity to show us that any plain-old-man can walk without sin without divinity. Had He been divine still, while walking in the flesh, men would say "Of course He didn't sin because He wa...

Re: WHAT'S WRONG WITH BEING PERFECT?

It is in John 1:1. He gave up the ability to know when He would return in glory and when the end would come to Jerusalem. He lost something when He submitted to God and was made flesh. I was remembering how before Jesus was manifested on earth how He "was with God and He was God". (John 1:1) As now...
