given a choice between salvation which is free, to be received with joy and thanksgiving,
and a reward that must be worked for, along with a list of strict regulations and rules, long checklists of do's and don'ts, a measuring stick with which to judge ones self against others

mankind overwhelmingly rejects the free gift, and pursues the unattainable. even with full knowledge that it is unattainable, the human prefers that thing whereby he may judge others, and himself, as unequal, glorying in his works and puff, forming inquisitions & condemning all who do not match his own ignorant view of himself.

as though the mercy of God is a zero-sum game, the Jacks of the world come-a-mocking and accusing, subtextually glorying in themselves. here is the sin of Sodom: pride.

remember Lot's wife

the one who hates even his own life, and who loses it for Christ's sake, is the one worthy of Him - but only one is worthy, the Lamb that was slain and rose again. so then, who is worthy without Him? and it is only in Him that anyone is worthy, because all worth comes from Him; He's my everything, and all righteousness that comes from ourselves is nothing but rot and flotsam.

yet men prefer such rubbish, proudly, instead of submitting to a righteousness that is not of themselves. such self-achieved righteousness, a vanity of mere behaviour modification, in itself, is also sin.

except this is a claim for yourself:



so, the truth is ..


agree?
So you believe that by answering your question
to you when you ask me to claim something of myself... that I make no claim of myself ...
I am making a claim of myself...that I make no claim of myself?

If this is true then it is you that is making the claim that I am making a claim of myself...not me.

You give yourself way way way to much credit. Far more than you deserve.

And God raised us up with Christ
and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus

For some reason you think we value your opinion.
I do not believe you value the truth so I know you would not value anything I have to say.
Unless you can use it against me to find condemnation within me.

You are not in hell right now are you?
actually according to you too, Jack.

don't you remember cursing us all?
claiming you had power to send us to hell, that our souls were all under your thumb?

several times, actually, over the years.

and remember how we demonstrated that you have no such power?

who actually has that power, Jack?

say it - praise His name!

You believe that YOU will be seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenly realm?

Is this what you really believe about yourself?

Were you raised up with Christ?
