Discussion for Romans 8

  • LaVonne
    Marie Rose: Tell your friend to read 1 John 2:3-4 concerning keeping the commandments. We
    know him if we keep his commandments, if we do not keep the commandments, we are liars
    and the truth is not in us. This is a clear statement from John. There is no other interpretation for these verses.
  • A disciple
    Marie Rose; it sounds like your friend is under some bad teaching. The LORD is not unclear about this; that nothing unfit for His presence shall be admitted into His presence nor inherit glory. Much of the problem I think, is in the very wording that those kind always use. We do not accept Jesus! That is outrageous arrogance, and ignorance of God, and of one's self! God accepts us for Jesus' sake!
  • Bruce
    Marie:Yes we do sin,not FrontPage but still sin,a whole lot less than before! Satan is a master of deception. He will allow you just enough religion to go to hell. Your friend is in serious trouble.Tug in your heart: John6:44/Forgiving:1John 1:9/Washed:Revelation 1:5/ will be baptized with the HolyGhost:Matthew3:11/New Heart:2Corinthians5:17.You got it right a believer will keep the Commandments.
  • Marie Rose
    My friend seems to think that since Jesus died for all of our sins that he does not have to keep the commandments, as long as he has accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior...I beg to differ...though we all slip occasionally, I believe in doing my best to keep them and live with a kind and loving heart, what say you all?
