    "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to HIS ABUNDANT MERCY begat us again into living hope, by the again-rising of Jesus Christ from death," All that Jesus is, all that He said and did, all His prayers for us, did the Father answer in Jesus' rising again from dead. The words and deeds shall be for ever and all that for now opposes shall be conquered and removed.
  • Son of David
    Peter teaches that Faith isn't something to have but something thst is evolved thru purification of fiery temptation, but the knowledge of the truth that Jesus,the Christ (because Christ wasn't a name butan office)came in the flesh and taught an advanced class in Religion,revealing the existence of God, and certified his thesis by returning in Transfiguration as a testament, so sealing our fate

    The only way to tell God thank you or to be assured that I have truly been forgiven and saved by Christ is to be holy in ALL in all manner of conduct

    V18, Peter explains that animals bought with silver and gold then slaughtered to remove "sin" is nothing more than vanity held onto by tradition. It is meaningless and does not remove sin.
    Jesus taught that his gospel, His Words = His Blood, remove sin as they teach water baptism for removal of sin not blood sacrifice. His gospel is like an innocent lamb, pure. One can not BUY forgiveness of sin.
