a. A man born again eternally from above has a Spirit born from above ETERNALLY by INCORRUPTIBLE SEED that does NOT SIN
b. It is still HOUSED in a dead body of SIN (flesh) that WARS FOR CONTROL
c. The Battle GROUND IS THE MIND and the MORE ONE IS TRANSFORMED (Romans 12:1-2) the LESS they will SIN, FAIL and walk contrary.
d. NO ONE IS FULLY WITHOUT SIN this side of the transformation/resurrection.
Hence.....and written to believers.....WHERE SIN abounds, GRACE abounds the MORE. Believers are placed into a POSITIONING OF GRACE (Ephesians 2, Romans 5) and said GRACE outbounds our sin as CHRIST MEDIATES FOR US AS THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST.
If WE say that WE have NO SIN, WE are deceived and the truth is not in US. <--written by JOHN the apostle, saved, immersed, writes 5 books of the N.T. and in present tense!
It cannot be explained any better than this, which is biblical....either receive it for once in your life or continue to walk contrary!
Yes we sin its death . death to everything . life , relationships, jobs , health , fellowship . Why are unbelievers still condemned ? it can't be sins as that has all been paid for .
col 2.14 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Either Jesus died for the sins of the world or he did not ?
John 16 .8
8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they blashemed , stole, lied , smoked , ? no ..BELIEVE NOT ON ME . limited atonement in any sense is unbiblical . Jesus really did die for all , as the bible really says . But not all RECIEVE the atonement if they don't believe the Gospel . Show me a verse where unbelievers are paying for their sins in hell ? ( or will do )
All sins have been paid for . Your sins have been paid for . But if you don't recieve Jesus can you go to heaven ? no ,even though all your sins have been paid for and that's no longer the barrier . If you don't ' recieve Jesus then there is no Glorification. Receiving Jesus is the only issue that stands in between heaven and hell .
It was when you said some believe all they have to do is hold faith . For example ,when I read 1 cor 15 I don't see that we need to 'Hold faith to be saved '. Now of course some could believe the gosepl in vain . But if you read :
1¶Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3¶For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. then Romans 10
10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Then eph 1
13¶In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
I see nothing about 'holding faith ' 'working faith ' deeds ect ,to be saved ?
We know that it is through our faith, not our works, that we receive salvation. That does not mean that our works does not matter to the Lord. What we do matters to the Lord.
In Ephesians 2:8 Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared i
With salvation God works in us, it tells us we are created then to do good works. We become a new creation in the Lord, that creation is a righteous one, cleaned by the Lord, and not a person who wills to sin so they immediately become unrighteous.
In Revelations it tells us that the Lord looks at our works. Rev. 22:12 Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.
I think that part of Revelation is overlooked often enough.
I think that argument that is made claiming works have naught to do with our salvation has a lot to explain when denying God's own words that say the opposite.
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/search?q=judged+by+works&translation=all
