So... you prefer not to address the contradiction in the last post.John says he does not sin. That means that he does not sin continuously! If you know Jesus, He knows you, and He will give you the power to live a new kind of life. He gives us His righteousness. If there is not deliverance from sin through Christ, then you can have no confidence in Scripture, and if you cannot have confidence in Scripture, what confidence do you have at all about the future?
On the contrary-- He can and He does. Thank God. Remember the road to Damascus? To believe otherwise breeds nothing but hopelessness.Many Christians today think they can know God while disobeying Him...
He wants to come into our lives, but He cannot do it if we are disobeying His instructions.
Likewise.I will stick to Christ's truth and if you think I am part of a cult because I take Him at His word through the Bible, so be it. What God thinks of me is more important than what you or anyone thinks anyway.
I know what I am posting here is God's truth and I know it comes from a place of wanting to tell the truth of His Word. I also know that it is God who makes us receptive to His truth, so I will pray that God makes you receptive to His truth according to the Bible.
Because to date, no one has accomplished perfect obedience, except Jesus, Himself.There are even promises for those who obey Christ fully.
