Re: What is "SIN"

If He wasn't perfect, He wouldn't have been raised form the dead. Yet, He was raised from the dead imperfect. He alluded to the fact that there were things He did not know until He was seated at the right hand of the Father. That indicates imperfect knowledge. He, nor we, will be judged for our amo...

Re: What is "SIN"

If God sees us as perfect now, why can't we say we are perfect now? Does it matter? For example if you see your spouse as beautiful and perfect then to you she it. Even if she doesn't see herself that way. Even if others do not see her that way. To you she is. To follow your "pattern", what if I wa...

Re: What is "SIN"

You are aiming at convincing me I won't ever be able to obey Matt 5:48. That isn't going to happen. Why can't an originally perfect man, who was born of God's seed, still grow in grace and knowledge? Jesus didn't say "Be ye as knowledgeable as your Father in heaven is knowledgeable." If all knowled...

Re: What is "SIN"

I am asking about how you used the word PERFECT when you posted “ as one is perfect in his relationship with God” What do you mean by perfect. I mean: without sin and obedient to God in every matter. So, if one is "without sin and obedient to God in every matter" --- how is that different from the ...

Re: TRUTH

Finally, some clarity. So you do propose they fell away from belief. How do you apply that to falling away from rebirth? "Some" believed they were reborn, but committed sin. Wasn't the belief false in the end? If you say "yes", then they didn't fall away from rebirth, as they never had rebirth. The...

Re: TRUTH

Just because a man says he is reborn of God doesn't make him a son of God. The fruit distinguishes God's children from the devil's children. Exactly! Just as Jesus stated, a man can believe and then fall away. That isn't at all what I wrote. Saying one is reborn of God doesn't qualify it as fact. T...

I believe Esau genuinely repented to no avail because there was no longer an opportunity (Heb. 12:17).
He was sorry for it, for sure, but his action was not something he could "turn from".

Re: What is "SIN"

As long as one is perfect in his relationship with God, all the other facets of life are inconsequential. Are “perfect in (his) relationship” and being “sinless” the same thing? Yes, as those who sin have no relationship with God. It is written..."He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his comm...
