The Core of Harassment

Today’s media witch-hunt for any public figure who made inappropriate sexual comments or advances in the past ignores the culture they helped to create, pretending that the most rampant perpetrators of moral depravity (Hollywood, media persons, etc.) have all played by the rules, except for a growing number of… 860 more words

Is Jesus still condemned?

I know it sounds like a strange question. We’re going somewhere with it! No one would answer, “Yes!” Of course Jesus is no longer condemned, but He once was wasn’t He? 433 more words

A Deeper Look at Romans Chapter 7

In Romans 7:4 It is written, “My brethren, you were also made to die to the law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” This verse helps us understand the entire chapter of Romans 7, for Paul shows that we were made to die to the law. 4,818 more words

Again this post following on from the previous, strangely parallels my recent material, as well as much older material because Romans 7 is my "favourite" subject? The only reservation I have is his mention of obedience to law which he does not seem to clarify explicitly to the point of agreeing that "He has abolished the law". We are no longer under law, so we certainly should not be trying to "keep" it. However, other than this possibly unfounded "accusation", it seems pretty good. BE CAREFUL ABOUT LAW. THE LAW WAS AGAINST US AND THAT'S WHY IT WAS TAKEN AWAY. IT WAS THERE TO BRING US TO CHRIST, SO WE WOULD THEN LIVE BY THE SPIRIT, AS WAS ALWAYS INTENDED. COLOSSIANS. 2-14. On further looking at this article, it appears he may be under the misapprehension that Paul in 7 is speaking as a Christian, which is of course, wrong. Paul is relating his experience as one under law, and explaining why we had to die to the law, which we did through the body of Christ. We do not now reference law at all, but are led by the Spirit. Galatians explains the problem of those wanting to follow, be led by, the law. It was because of law that Christ died, to annul [abolish] the law (of sin and death.) His "Romans 7 Christian" is an oxymoron. (Contradiction in terms).

Are MRI Machines Evil?

Who would say that an MRI machine is evil? I’m not sure anyone would! However, what would happen if you put a war veteran who has shrapnel all throughout their body under that MRI machine? 296 more words

THE SHIFT FROM ROMANS 7 TO GALATIANS [491a]

Romans 7 describes one who is a captive, by law, to the law of sin and death. In fact the law becomes the law of sin and death because of, and to, indwelling sin. 971 more words
