by Oracio on 2012/1/20 10:52:44ArtB, thanks for taking the time to reply in such detail to my posts. For the most part I see we are in much agreement. On some things we will have to agree to disagree at this time brother. The Lord bless you and make His face to shine upon you.In Christ,Oracio"
Righteousness is obtained by faith. The 10 commandments and their true meaning have been written on our hearts where all sin comes from. Our hearts. The outward commandments have become internalized within, written on the heart as well as all the commandments of God in Christ Jesus. We are now led by the Spirit who fully agrees with the Word. Even the Sabbath, which has become Christ, is now Christ within.
Diane, I have read your posts, they were good in many ways, but I usually do not respond to posts I have no issue with. But I write now because I want you to know I appreciated your very well thought out and sincere responses.As Jesus said: 'Ask and you shall receive,'Most pleased to meet you via this forum.I broke my silence to let you know this.May God's blessings rain down upon you.
Art, I am deeply touched and encouraged by your words. It's true that the squeaky wheel gets the grease; and when wheels are working okay, nobody notices (as it should be). So words of encouragement are especially precious. May God delight you with his tender presence in your days ahead. May he be near, during your times of solitude. Diane
If you are born again, and possess His Holy Spirit, I suggest you "get out of the box", so to speak, and see the body of Christ as God does...because by cutting off as many souls as you do, you may be found to be cutting off Christ Himself.One body, One faith, One Baptism, One Lord...unto all in the World.
