Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2:11

  • First, receiving Christ does not mean that your future sins have been forgiven. That is why John says, "...but if we sin we have an advocate with the Father...", you have to repent to be forgiven as 1 John 1:9 assures us.

    Those are not just acts, they are transgressions of the 10 commandments. And sin by definition is transgression of the Law 1 John 3:4 and Romans 4:15. It is a verb with a meaning. Without the commandements, the how do you know that you have sinned, because even Paul in his epistle to the Romans 7:7-13 says that it was because of the law that he knew sin. And there are so many verses from him that forbids us to commit that act of sin.

    James in his epistle 2:8-14, tells it very well that we should keep all the 10 commandments and quotes two of them. Having being saved by Christ is by faith, but you show this faith by keeping God's law so that people know that you are saved and through your actions they may get to know God.

    With this in mind, there are two kinds of laws in the Bible, the 10 commandments and the Mosaic Law. The Mosaic Law is what Christ nailed on the cross and that we have no obligation to follow. But the 10 commandments are perpetual, even Christ Himself says they will never change until heaven and earth come to pass, Matthew 5:18-19.

    In the Hebrew nation, before Christ they used to sin knowingly because they knew in the Mosaic law there was a provision that if you sin, you take a lamb or any other animal as prescribed by that law, take it to the priest, confess to it and when it was sacrificed you were forgiven of your sins. But now with Christ, all that was no more, and this applies to us too. That when we sin knowingly we grieve the Holy Spirit because He convicts us of sin, Ephesians 4:30, Matthew 12:30-32.
  • The beginning of the end started with this fake virus, billions of people are being deceived by it, will people be deceived when the vaccine appears?!
  • That's why this "fake Virus" is killing so many.
  • I personally believe the virus is real, but that there's a gross overreaction. It's a disproportionate reaction to the threat. Other communicable diseases that killed more in the past were mostly ignored by the media in comparison to this. They were also ignored by governors. I think there are political reasons for the media to play it up so much and believe they are mostly pushing lies and political propaganda.

    If people genuinely cared about saving lives and the well being of citizens then number 1 would be immediately stop murdering babies. Today 3,500 babies were legally murdered in the US. What about their right to choose, their rights to grow up, to love, and be loved. What about the loving parents who could have adopted them, but instead they butchered them. It's many times worse than the holocaust and no one seems to care.

    Also, smoking kills up to half a million people in the US every year and no one seems to care. Drugs and alcohol kill even more. If someone calls the Wuhan virus a pandemic, then that is absolutely nothing compared to the real threats and top causes of death. Obesity is another one. 2/3 of Americans overweight and its an epidemic and out of control. Huge number of deaths from it, like heart disease, cancer, etc. But I don't see cultural change over that either. These 3 things mentioned are significantly more life threatening than the virus from china.
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2:11
    How have you determined that this Virus is a fake? It's good & valuable when someone shares something that they have learned, but it has to be authenticated. If on spiritual matters, then we need to find evidence in God's Word; if on earthly matters, then we need evidence here also.

    In the legal system, as with God's system, evidence has to be given to prove the guilt (or, innocence) of that person. If there's no evidence, the case is thrown out of court. If I can prove to God that I'm without sin, then God can't charge me for it & has to punish me. But I've tried, but everywhere I look inside me, I find that God is right about my sinful condition.

    So, if you believe that the evidence shown about the Virus' existence is all made up, then what is your evidence to disprove that? I mean, you could be right in your declaration, but proof is required.
  • I believe the lie has begun with this virus the mask wearing the 6 food distancing its like what is wrong with you? its a lie did you hear that the CIA use this against the enemies of the state and of course they consider us all enemies of the state they are taking your DNA when testing,,,,
  • I believe everything that the bible says is true because it is the word of God
  • I agree aliens are none other than the fallen angels who 's mission under satan is to deceive mankind. H2 a offshoot of the history channel has a show called ancient aliens that deny the existence of "G d " and imply that aliens were the creators of humankind in the ancient past and our DNA is mixed with thiers and that we are the descendants of the nephelim see Genesis chapter 6 and numbers 13:31-36 I believe that those who do not accept Jesus as their Lord and savior might be descendents of the nephelim but those who accept Christ must have descended through Noahs bloodline. God found Noah righteous in his generation. His bloodline was not tainted. There is something very special about human blood that the adversary covets.
  • "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin " Rom. 4 8 . So then I pray that the Lord God have MERCY on us AMEN.
  • Jeff diggins on 2 Thessalonians 2:11
    the delusion will be aliens... be careful the aliens are the fallen demons and satan
