When are you Saved? Romans 7 is the key to understanding imputed Righteousness
It is clear to me that God first imputed sin to man after the sin of symbolic Adam who "ate of the tree ". I won't bore you with the scripture but it is well known . Man then failed at God's laws in the Old testament and he sent his Son to death on the cross for our Sins consistent with the blood sacrifices in the holy of holys (See Hebrews 9:3) and the passover sacrifices for thousands of years. Jesus died for our sins that we might live in imputed righteousness.(if you believe That Jesus is the SON) ) But "legalists" want you to live under the Old Testament law in order to get "Tithes" to pay their mortgages as "professional Christians" and to do this they reimpose the falsehood that you must live a"sinless" life. Sin is undefined but they want to throw you back under the law to get you to pay money and feel guilt when your salvation was a free gift from God.

Then contemplate Paul's continuing SIN!! "14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to dothis I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it."!! (Present tense) Paul was the worst of all sinners shrieking with joy as Steven was stoned to death . "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners - of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life." [1 Timothy 1:15-16] But do you have any doubt that Paul was saved? He was not obedient!! He violated the commands of God and Jesus!! He was saved by BELIEF in Christ as the son of God!!
We are saved when we recognize the Son of God as our only Savior from this terminal world.
“We are saved when we recognize the Son of God as our only Savior from this terminal world.”
and we are willing to come to him like a child
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Mathew 18:3
We are saved when we realize that we are saved by Christ alone. We then battle sin because we have Christ in us.
Even so, come Lord Jesus.
Eh. You again.
Demons believe but are not saved.
Can you believe but not obey?
Is faith the same as belief?
The bible says baptism saves you in I Peter.
I think my wife would have a problem with me SAYING I love her, vs SHOWING her I loved her. Why would the creator expect a lower standard?
Eh, indeed. Epic smug. Smartest man in the room. No oxygen left for anyone else to breathe. We are graced again by your erudition. Oh wait, there is no grace is there?
Yup. When you realize your desperate condition that you can’t get out of on your own, and realize a loving God made ONE WAY accessible to all people, as a solution to your problem (ie your personal sins condemning you to hell, the place that is totally separated from God).
LOL! I gotta get me one of those!!!
It’s standard issue for mods.
Oh my! Never underestimate Kitty Power!
(Hey, is that a cat in your pajamas?) :o)
Love it! Thanks for the morning coffee LOL!
Kewl, a fully auto siammese!
“No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for Gods seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God”. 1 John 3:9
I was saved by Faith alone, in Christ alone.
That cat is illegal in California, nowadays.
And the criminals instantly complied with the law. (/sarc)
John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
The author of the blog needs to learn the difference between justification and sanctification.
1 John 1:6 - “If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 - “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? DO NOT BE DECEIVED: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such WERE some of you.”
Luke 6:46 - “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’, and not do what I tell you?”
John 14:15 - “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”
John 3:36 - “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
