Living and Dying... in sin

True but then again even that needs developing in you. We must learn how to submit unto His authority and Lordship over our own thinking.
You did not just start thinking like Christ.
That rules out scriptures such as Renewing the mind in Christ
When I turned from satan and unto God, I had 40 plus years of experience avoiding God.
I instantly knew it was all wrong, and started my obedience, on the first day in Christ.

Amazing, totally amazing. But still, that doesn't encourage me to sign up to Christianity. I have become accustomed to dealing with my own faults and problems myself.
If you are happy being as you are, or pretending you serve God like false Christians do...so be it.
If you ever get serious about giving glory to God with the knowledge that you will never hurt another soul or yourself...God will not leave you to twist in the wind.
He will get you together with the folks who will accompany you to salvation.
In the mean time, I will keep praying that you aren't killed or seriously injured.

I am sorry, an administrator might put me in correction over this but., I have to say this, As far as I am concerned you are a fake. And I am dusting of my sandals with you.
God bless and may you indeed go the rest of your life with out sin.
You aren't walking away from me; you are walking away from Godliness.

Sometimes I have to dust my feet off from some people. Recently I walked away from this guy who owed me money, because he was bleeding me dry, and didn't take my feelings about it into account. But I didn't take that action lightly, I stuck it out with him for months until I decided to walk.

OK...I'm back in my chair...
If the Lord Jesus will convince me that His death and resurrection didn't allow me to live without sin, I will quit telling others that it can.
Hi Brother At Peace,
That's not what I was trying to get through unto you.
We all agree that Jesus made a way that we can over come ALL SIN in our lives.

What I am saying is there will be areas of your life you are not yet perfected in and one day the Lord Jesus Christ will show you.

I have no doubt what so ever that you have been able to overcome much sin and are not tempted or give into temptation to do those sins again.

What I don't believe you are understanding is there is so much more then Thee sin you know of in your thinking.

Any way may you continue to grow and mature in Christ.
Blessings to you and your family

Exactly you Started and yet you did not know it all not did you know how to walk in His ways because that takes Growth and Growth never stops unless one stops growing because they think the have arrived.
This make sense to you?
Blessings to you

Again, I don't understand what you are trying to say!

Sure it makes sense to me.
I pray for an increase in grace and knowledge frequently, but that doesn't mean I am less than perfect now.
You seem to want to lessen yourself because you don't yet "know it all".
Why?
Jesus didn't "know it all" while He was on earth. (Times and seasons of the end)
But He still walked sin free in the flesh.
So can you.

Do you know anyone who has "matured"?
And what would you use as the measuring stick?
Actually Brother the forum is filled with them and every Christian I know has matured in Christ to some degree.

Measuring Stick? Come on Brother , really?
Blessings to you

It's not about walking sin free in the flesh. It's growing in Christ and letting Him change you. You never out grow growth.

He will show you things to remove or change that are actually sin (opposed)
to His Word. A deeper depth of understanding.

You really should have just bitten your tongue. What he says that he has done or is doing is very simply what Jesus has said that a man could do. Because you have not the done the same to me means that you should perhaps look to yourself before you accuse him in such manner:

"Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?" Matt 7:1-4

If he really were a "fake" as you say [I do not agree with your judgment, but even if I did I would still be careful about expressing it] you should as I see it simply back away and leave it in God's hands:


"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:" Ecc 3:1

"... a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;" Ecc 3:7

Do you know anyone who has..."finally" arrived after many months or years of trying?
If he really had, unless his "eyes to see" had moved from the "through a glass darkly" all the way to the "face to face", how could be so certain of what he was seeing that he could say without hesitation, "Yes"?

Indeed our example of this being perfect now is seen in Job, the very first verse:

"There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil." Job 1:1

But God saw and allowed Job to grow. Job only was "perfect" in where he was with what he had, but God recognized that he could come up higher... and through the trials and trubulations which followed he most certainly did.

But it hurts so!
Saying it and doing are two entirely different things But, of-course I forget you and Mr. Peace are perfect, so whom am I to judge?
  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
  • Romans 3:10 As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;
  • Proverbs 26:12 Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
  • Mark 10:18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.
  • Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!
  • Ecclesiastes 7:20 Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.

My friend you may not be able to accept what others believe as your own, but you do need to learn to control the sarcasm. It is very apparent even in a typed post. The following verse would, I believe, apply:

"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Matt 12:36

If your words were spoken from the heart according to what you believe as a warning, that might not be idle. But you added the sarcasm and thus make it difficult to believe your words were not vain or idle or even accusatory. That must be discovered between you and God.

For your own benefit I would suggest you do a Bible study on "perfect" and "perfection". Like many men you impose man's definition on the scriptures when it really is not accurate.
