Discussion for Deuteronomy 22

  • Stop Lying to Yourselves
    Jesus Christ did not come to do away with the law nor did he change anything. And no, you can't just do whatever you want and expect to be with God in the end. It doesn't work that way. Our loving God is also a holy and just God who HATES sin.

    I believe that Jesus Christ died for all sin, past, present and future Genesis through Revelations. If I interpret correctly, as described in Revelations, this is an chance once again for others to be saved. Our God is an loving God, an just God who is the I AM I AM! I like what I see thus far and hope to study Deuteronomy Chapter 22 more! Am I allowed to comment as the comments I see?
