January 2, 2016 After reading the above I’m unsure if English is THE first language. It’s obvious THE article is written from a religious antichrist Protestant Christian Bible New Testament view point, if indeed ONE THINKS the above is correct.
All religions have one fatal flaw, they trust in man.
As demonstrated plainly once again within the above, man has to battle on….. which is major failure of understanding Grace.
When one genuinely understands the requirements OF THE SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE KNOWN AS God the Father, through the God-man-Jesus’ Atonement, by The God-Holy Spirit, these three inseparable and equal in power are the spiritual substance known as God.
Understanding a life HAS TO BE DECIDED BEFOREHAND TO turn to the writings of Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists BEFORE YOU CAN BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
And, to agree before hand to obey the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists commands and truths within the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament only, no other, no ancient or new traditions.
When God’s requirements are meet BEFOREHAND, God, not man, by the Holy Spirit regenerates man supernaturally as a “New Creature in Christ.”
No sin tags along with man. Man then has been set free of sin and death by the redeeming blood of Jesus.
Often religious sinning cult members will justified their sins with this devil demon inspired doctrine that Christians are yet sinners and have to battle it.
A complete lack of scripture truth premeditates these cult religious anti bible statements.
All religious cult members are trained to repeat incomplete knowledge of the scripture, so that the weak and unsuspecting will be ensnared in this devil doctrine that Christians are “new creatures in Christ with sin.”
This devil’s doctrine diminishes the Atonement work of Christ.
As with other demonic cults as Mormons, Roman Catholics, Oneness, Holy Laughter, Predestination, and so many more, all are demonic.
The spiritually born again, not a church going religionist are set free by the Blood of Christ.
Below is the final verses of the incomplete and miss-leading statement above in the New testament Book of Romans.
Romans 8:1-11 KJV – 1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
10 And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Conclusion: All free will persons can be set free of sin and death upon meeting God’s requirements as stated above.
Temptation is not sin. Jesus was tempted and sin-not. The New Creature in Christ Man or woman are tempted and sin-not.
In Christ a Christian has God’s Grace, Power, Strength, Love and favor.
Greater is Christ within a Christian than the devil and all his temptations. Man is freed from sin and death.
The angels are free from sin and rebellion, they freely choose to serve their Creator.
