Discussion for 1 John 3

  • Randy
    Son of David: One does not take salvation. It is received. That is why we have ceased from our labors, because we cannot attain to righteousness by works of the flesh, but have to submit to HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS by the SPIRIT OF TRUTH! The workers in the vineyard have ceased from their own labors, and now work for GOD.
  • Son of David
    To Dis. I would be comforted to know Salvation was such a small matter that it was there for the taking. Would that I could supplant the Father and his righteous judgement to cease my labor on earth. But the vineyard requires laborers who do not cease from their labor day by day. Have you not understood this. Do you not understand that Jesus, the Christ said That Father works and I work.

    And when Christ, the only begotten Son of God, shall have down hell death and the grave, He shall, in front of all beings in Heaven, turn to His Father, and submit Himself, and His authority, to the Heavenly Father.

    Son of David: God hath from the beginning chosen you to SALVATION through sanctification of the Spirit and BELIEF OF THE TRUTH: 2Thess2:13 To give knowledge of SALVATION unto his people by the REMISSION OF THEIR SINS. Luke1:77 Jesus has saved us by TAKING AWAY ALL OF OUR SIN. Where their is REMISSION, their is no more offering for sin! When you study scripture, look FOR it! TRUST IN HIS SALVATION!
  • Son of David
    I love Jesus, the Christ more than most. I have absorbed the whole bible as to put things in context and I am sure that noone can proclaim salvation before the judgement. That is my complaint around every collective idea, especially the "born again". Are they more likely to understand the truth because of one verse 3:16? Please understand that Jesus, the Christ did not absolve sins but per se
  • Randy
    Hey there Greg! The law of the spirit of life and truth has made us free from the law of sin and death. By the law we are made free from the law. Dead to sin...free to marry another...His righteousness! The flesh profits nothing because Jesus condemned sin in the flesh for us. Took it out of the way, as far as the east is from the west. Now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus! HOLY
