This off-topic section of the thread has gone completely batty. I am not devoting enough time to it (becuase it is not what the article I posted was intended for). Direct me to the woman in church thread and I'll give it my all.
Hopefully for clarity sake:
When I kneel at the throne of God and he judges me, I am confident of my entry into heaven.
I rely on his grace....completely understanding my sinful nature. I do not mock the sacrifice of our Lord Christ.
You should maybe re-read my posts to gain a better understanding of my position concerning women in the church. Beyond that maybe just let it go as an incomplete thread...judgement is Gods not yours.
If you think you got enough info to label me or call into question my faith...have at it. I'll be your dart board. I got big enough shoulders to handle it.
So it seems odd and dangerous to me that you are okay with going against the word of God. People sin every day, knowingly and unknowingly. However, I think that a Christian's goal is to ask God to forgive their sin and try not to commit that sin anymore, even though that's impossible. You seem to essentially acknowledge that you're sinning, by going against the word of God, but not repenting for it and are willing to take the chances of what will happen.
I was not judging you, just trying to understand a point of view different from mine and others who had posted. Of course, no one is in any position to judge your sin...remove the plank from your own eye before you try to remove the splinter from your brother's....
If you're okay with your position, fine, it's not my goal to change your mind or tell you I think you're a bad Christian, that's between your heart and God, and my opinion matters not. I was simply looking for an explanation of the quote. However, it seems that if you were truly okay with what you posted, you wouldn't come across as defensive as you do. Perhaps it's a good time to examine what you believe, what God has told you and see if those two things agree? I always appreciate an honest discussion of faith to see if my beliefs hold up to someone else's. Most of the time they do, sometimes I take the opportunity to think about things in a different light, measure them to God's word and massage them to a better agreement with Him. No need to think of it as being a dartboard.
