ZOT is the answer!

Posted on 08/14/2009 8:51:52 PM PDT by johns777

Apparently there have been some 'Snake-Oil' salespersons selling Jesus as a cure-all.

For instance I am acquainted with two individuals who profess to be Christians. One is a confessed thief and the other a habitual liar (people pleaser). These two expect God to 'fix' them. So if God chose to take on that responsibility then the next morning the thief wakes and reaches up to scratch his nose only to discover his hands are missing and the liar is unable to speak as his tongue is missing.

I don't know anything but I'm pretty sure we're still responsible for our choices and life is a series of choices. We are responsible for our daily renewal.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV) “The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

The ultimate illness is separation from God. Jesus IS the cure for that illness.

Christ’s purpose is to save that which was lost. Thats you and me. To save us from hellfire, not to make us perfect, or incapable for sin.

Following this line of reasoning should lead one to conclude that God made a mistake in creating man in the first place...

That He didn’t know that man would sin against Him until Adam did so... and of course if God didn’t know what was coming, and furthermore didn’t have a plan for it, then He must not really be God then, and if He isn’t God, then there is no God.

Fact is, there really is not much need for God to punish those who sin against others on a daily basis, because the consequence of the sin normally returns to the sinner in one way or the other... because we reap what we sow... The thief gets his hand cut off by the merchant, the liar is found out and stoned... or at least is no longer trusted, and ultimately the penalty for the mere fact that we are all sinners is physical death.

This physical death is not the same as our spiritual death.
Those who have found Jesus have found eternal life AFTER their physical death, and the ETERNAL consequence for their sin has been paid for by Jesus Himself.

No... we do not escape our sins... all will give an account.
But to relate everything needing a “cure” to the physical and temporal realms is simply narrow minded.

How does one tell if one IBTZ OR IATZ? I can’t tell when the ZOT takes place. Who is the Zotter? Does the Zot occur when the Zot makes a post?

This has to be one of the most confused postings that I have ever read. Sir, you need to state your premises clearly, in order that the reader has some idea what point you are attempting to make. We cannot read your mind.

One is zotted when there they are no longer among us. You can tell by clicking on their screen name. Last I checked it has not been zottified.

"If I choose to believe I’m immune from deceiving myself then what hope do I have of being the best I might be?"

You asked the question on your profile page.

I will tell that Jesus is your only hope of being the best you can be. The problem is you are obviously rejecting because you have something within that blocks Jesus Christ (God) out of your life.

You should try to ask God to forgive you and remove it from your heart and take its place.

Then see what happens.

It will only happen if you truly repent within at the most personal level.

God will judge you by your heart and by your heart only.

Thats all I got. You will be banned soon.
