  • MARILYN MANOCCHIO
    THIS BIBLE PASSAGE REALLY SPOKE TO MY HEART. ESPECIALLY VERSE 58 WHICH says " THEREFORE MY BELOVED BRETHREN, BE YE STEDFAST, UNMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, FOR AS MUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YOUR LABOUR IS NOT IN VAIN IN THE LORD". THAT CHRIST WILL INCREASE OUR FAITH AND THAT BY DOING HIS WILL NOT ONLY BE SAFE, ALSO JOYOUS AND TRIUMPHANT. PRAISE BE TO THE KING OF GLORY AMEN.

    That means that we have the victory through conquering

    Jesus defeated sin which leads to spiritual and natural death at the cross. Now they do not have dominion over us because I am no longer under the law but under grace
  • Nicholas Palmer
    Baptism is by works....undermining the Cross for all works have been nailed to it including the law which gives sin power...faith plus nothing..
