Grace (not law) unto you, and peace (not confusion),
from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus-->Christ.
My comment, about your comment,
to Light's questions about the law, is:
- it is preposterous order to teach first and learn afterward;
- not wrong (bad), per se, just more to learn on your part; since
- scriptures were written aforetime "for our learning": Rom 15:4
- so "go ye and learn" what Matthew 9:13 (Hos 6:6) "meaneth"
Hint: if no man is justified BY THE LAW in Galatians 3, and
if sacrifice and offering are BY THE LAW in Hebrews 10, which
also notes doing the will of God precedes receive the promise, and
if Heb 11 says all who didn't do it died and rec'd not the promise, then
it reasons that no man is justified by any sacrifice in the sight of God,
and because sacrifice (blood shed) does NOT purge all things: Heb 9.
Hint: if "a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump", is kinda like saying
a little cancer can and will KILL the whole body if not removed in time,
then your 'Spirit of the Law' BS is like a "little" cancer in body of Christ.
PST: there is no such 'Spirit of the Law' phrase in all of the Bible. Selah.
Gil, your churchy rhetoric (BS) is what you LEAVE, in order to
GO ON UNTO PERFECTION = "MERCIFUL" = "HARMLESS".
Until you LEAVE law (sin, sacrifice, death) you don't have e-life.
"Eternal life" is NOT life after death; Rather it's life VOID of death.
"Life eternal", in Mt 25:46, is neither unity of Spirit nor eternal life.
So then, you have been seduced (snared, deceived, "bewitched"),
by "another law" in Mt 22:36-40 is notably "like the first": DEADLY.
So, please take your other wise: "earthy, sensual, devilish" wisdom,
and shove it where the sun does not shine. Learn first, Teach after.
"SEEK ye FIRST the kingdom of God AND his righteousness".
See Luke 16:16 concerning "the law" and the "kingdom of God".
God is a Spirit (Grace), NOT a Ghost (Law).
"Led of the Spirit" is NOT Ghost driven.
"Led" = "follow me" (Galatians 5)
Driven = "walk before me" (Galatians 3)
Gil, you need to dismiss the OLD school-master: Law,
for it's the sort of school-master that fails every student.
Gil, see 1Corinthians 13:1-3 to NOTICE,
of these three: Faith --> Hope --> Charity,
- 2/3 = 0.666... to infinity of NOTHING (0)
- 3/3 = 1.000... to eternity of everything (1);
So if you do not GO ON UNTO Charity "never faileth",
then all you Faith + Hope stuff profits you "NOTHING".
You keep coming to the forum to ask what's new, and
making foolish childish comments like: maybe Dan's sick,
but fail to read and "learn" difference between Old and New.
Gil, I have not been to any doctor in almost 20 years.
I don't do $ick. I am = all comfort, no discomfort at all.
That is all I have to say at this time.
The GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ WITH YOU ALL. AMEN.
