Life Is Good Until... by CharisEleos(f): 8:22am On May 12
Life is good until you find yourself unexpectedly on the other side.

Where you'll end up ( eternal life or eternal damnation) after here will be determined by the choices you make now.

Why not make the right choices now before it is too late?

Do not forget.
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. That whosoever believes in Him Should not perish but have everlasting life.

Brethen, come now and take the free gift of eternal life- salvation, by accepting Christ as your personal Lord and savior.

It cost nothing to get saved. All that is required is your confession and acknowledgement of Christ as your Lord by faith. But it will cost a lot to reject this gift. It will cost one his/her eternity not to accept Christ.

So, I implore you to accept Him today and enjoy an eternal life of joy and peace forever.

JESUS cares.

Shalom.

Life is good until God Leaves you!

Life is good until when it is not good!

And when it is not good, then you have entered into the Curse of the man or the womb man respectively.

And when you are in the Curse, then you have to learn how to get out of the Curse.

And when you successfully get out of the Curse, then Life shall be Good Again

That's why The Bible is a Gift from God! It's Advices and Counsels, Teachings and Warnings is The Way, THE ONLY WAY To Break out of The Curse!

The Summary of it is "Do These Things And Live well and Live Eternally, if you want to live well and not die in vanity, suffering and pain"!

There is No Other Way no matter how intelligent and knowledgeable you are, you will still Lose and Die in the Curse.

We are pieces in a chessboard and the "checkmate" is Always against us, unless we make these specific moves.

Glad you know that it was God who cursed man and not the devil. Interesting.
And the same God suddenly blames man for committing sin?
Yet man has not been able to overcome the curse even after Jesus came to die for the sins of man?

It's interesting that one sin immediately caused God to chase Adam and Eve out of Eden.
Yet the sacrifice of a whole God through Jesus Christ was not enough to restore man into the Garden of Eden or Paradise. The sacrifice of a whole son 9f God dying was not enough to obliterate the sinfulness in man!!!

Therefore, Curses are Avoidable, if you Truly want to avoid them, in the exercise of your Freewill.

The Law of Sin Sacrifice is meant to Wipe Out ONLY THE SINS OF THOSE WHO KNOW THEY HAVE SINNED AND HATE TO SIN AND DO NOT WANT TO SIN AGAIN!

All who do not fall under this Law do not have their sins Wiped Out

IT IS NOT DELETE BUTTON AND RESTORATION! NO

BUT DELETE BUTTON FOR QUALIFICATION FOR CONSIDERATION FOR RESTORATION!

RESTORATION COMES AFTER JUDGEMENT EXACTLY AS YOU WEIGH AND RECONSIDER ACCEPTING AND RESTORING BACK YOUR OFFENDING WIFE OR GIRLFRIEND YOU SEE THAT SHE IS REMORSEFUL FOR HER SINS.

I'm just being rational here.
I know I've sinned.
I believe the bible says we all sin. The only difference between us and Adam is the confession of our sins and repentance as we ask for forgiveness.

Which is my point for asking the question.
Cos sin is inevitable.
Both sin against God and sin against your fellow man.

Cos even as employees you could be late to work.
As employers you could charge usury. Etc

How about getting genuinely born-again and enjoying the grace of God upon your life instead of this rise and fall everyday under the law which most of you seem to have bounded yourself under.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

You're quoting the old testament though.
This has nothing to do with one who has been born of the Spirit.

Was hoping you could have new testament verses that support the claim that a born again cannot sin.

That's one of the many lessons the Bible attempts to teach all men, which I would summarise like this.

The Bible agrees that in relating with your surrounding, conflicts will occur and Offences (sins) might be given and be taken. This is not a problem at all.

The problem is WHAT TYPE OF OFFENCES!

1) ARE THEY BONAFIDE AND GOOD NATURED OFFENCES HAVING NO EVIL AT ALL OR

2) ARE THEY WILFUL AND DELIBERATE WICKEDNESSES TARGETED AT ANOTHER PERSON OR THING?


The Bible tells us that by 99% Accuracy, we choose to implement No. 2 Type of Offences AND WE LOVE TO IMPLEMENT IT! (Which is the Key of our Damnation, man, Loves To Do Wicked Things)

The Bible does not hide the fact that it is profitable and sweet to do No. 2, but IT CLEARLY WARNS that it's profit is very short-lived and that inside its profits is Contained Pain, Anguish, Sorrow, Curses/Cursing, Destruction and Finally The Great Judgment of Everlasting life of Unending and Unabating Pain.


The Bible discloses All of The Diverse Ways we wilfully sin Under No. 2 and that it is by the Proven Facts of No. 2 that we shall be Judged.

Thus, the Bible lays down The Laws which guide us and aid us from committing any Crime/Sin/Offence under No. 2.

While we undertake the Sacrifice of Christ (Sin Offering) to wipe away all our previous No. 2 Sins so that we may be Clean and that Through The Laws, we may remain Clean and Unsinned!


That is the briefest summary of Sin vs. Sacrifice for Sins vs. Judgement for Sins!

The first question is what is sin?

Sin is defined as disobedience or offense to God.

Are you saying once you are born again, you cannot disobey God? That you cannot disobey the leading of the Holyspirit?

1. Only God has the power to bless or to curse His creation. undecided

2. Men have overcome that judgement of sin and death that was placed in man by God from the fall. Ezamples of such are Abel, Enoch, Noah, Job, etc
... men who through obedience (opposite of sin which is disobedience) of God's commandments were able to overcome sin and recieve eternal life of God. undecided

3. The plan has never been for man to be restored back to Eden through. The whole earth was created for man to live and thrive in, not just the garden. undecided

4. Please abandon all doctrines and delusions that served to "romanticize" the death of Jesus Christ, pretending that he deserves our hugs and kisses for His "sacrifice". By human standards, yes it was a sacrifice alright but when you look from above, it was necessary to His mission that He died or else it would have all been for nothing. He told us this in so many parables.

Jesus Christ came to provide for men an easier way to get back to God's love(the only kind of love driven according to the Will of God) and grace(eternal life). He did not come that all men can go live in a garden(eden) but that they can, even while living here on earth, enjoy that which they once lost and that is exactly what He did. undecided

1. John chapters 14, 15, and 16 explain the path of those who make it to becoming Sons of God .I.e are set free from bondsge to sin. In those chapters we learn that those who abide in Jesus Christ, He will abide in(the Spirit of Truth) and as they continue to submit to and obey His teachings & commandments , the Truth/Law of God, the Father(the Spirit of God -another Helper) will come and make His Home in. undecided

2. Those who have the Father living in them are those who are called righteous for His Spirit controls and commands their every moves, causing them to carefully obey His commandments, just as Jesus Christ did (Ezekiel 36 vs 24 -27). undecided

3. The easy way that Jesus Christ came to offer mankind is not the mess you hear of from pulpits across the world. It is instead an ingenious approach to resolving the sin problem in all those who will submit to and obey the teachings & commandments of Jesus Christ. undecided

God's original plan was to "harvest" for Himself Sons of God, and so He created Adam as the first but Adam failed. God used the opportunity to gather for Himself a people through that.
Then God sent Jesus Christ to use as a different Master clone using His own Spirit as driving force. Jesus Christ succeeded by living in submission and obedience to God's Law and Will, exactly as God expected and so God set out, through Him,to install the program Jesus Christ in every man who would choose to submit to His grand plan. And so what is the key? Complete submisson and obedience to teachings of Jesus Christ with the Spirit of God eventually taking full control through God's Will. undecided

First sin. You just lied.
Also according to Matthew 5:17-48 you are bound to sin. Be your own judge.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Murder

21“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, a and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister b c will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ d is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.

23“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

25“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Adultery

27“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ e 28But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Divorce

31“It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ f 32But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Oaths

33“Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. g

Eye for Eye

38“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ h 39But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Love for Enemies

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor i and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

In Matthew 5 Jesus enumerated the various sins of man I was hoping you could prove not guilty of any one.
But I already told you that I am not guilty of disobeying any of the sins listed by Jesus Christ. undecided

So, why do you think that I have to be guilty of something regardless? undecided

The same Jesus Christ confessed that when you Know the Truth, the Truth shall set you free from slavery to sin, this He said in addition to commanding that we be perfect(holy).even as His Father in Heaven is perfect(holy). undecided

Am I right to assume that you mean as a follower of Christ you cannot commit sin?

Recall you mentioned earlier that sin is a choice made to disobey the teachings and commandments of God. undecided

Well, the reason I am able to say I did not sin all of this week is because I continually chose to submit and obey the teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ. It is through this that my mind and heart is trained obey God rather than disobey. undecided

However, overtime, I have noticed that the Spirit now aids me in my obedience as I do not have to actively process the commands in my mind - my mind or heart seems to know more and more what choices to make in what situation so I am not as stressed about making the right choice as I used to be when I first started. undecided
