Greetings Yeshua's follower, You said, Over the last couple of days I have been reading through what you guys have to say on this topic. Your discussion on the topic of the "law" has been very encouraging to me. I first started looking into this topic about three years ago when the youth pastor at o...

Creation is certainly a topic of considerable depth.

For some light reading on the subject and related areas, may I suggest the following,

puritan lad wrote, Those who did not recognize the diety of the Roman state were ostracized from the market place, plundered by tax collectors, and persecuted even unto death. Those who participated in Caesar worship were branded with his mark. Those who worshipped the true God were branded with God...

John, I wrote, What I think you're saying is that any future sins you commit are already forgiven because the debt has been paid for them so you don't have to repent. Your reply, That is what I mean as far as salvation goes. The law of sin still requires one's life for having broken the law and that...

I said, The issue is not sacrificing Christ every time one sins and I didn't say that's what happens. Christ's sacrifice is sufficient to cover all sin. However, it appears from your comments that you disagree with my statement where I said Christ's blood pays our debt when we repent. Is this right?...

Jbuza, I said, The answer is, Christ's sacrifice - his shed blood pays our debt when we repent, making forgiveness possible. Your response, I do not agree with this. I believe that when I identify with Jesus' sacrifice, and have faith that he will present me before God guiltless before the Law becau...

Jbuza I asked, So now I would ask, how is this forgiveness you seek possible? In other words, how is it when you or I repent that we can be forgiven for sins which, when committed, put us in debt according to the law? How is our debt to the law incurred by sin, paid? Your response, I thought this wa...

Byblos, I wrote, To be a true Christian we must be one of Christ's (Rom. 8:9). To be one of Christ's we must have the Spirit (Rom. 8:9). To receive the Spirit, we must obey God including His commandments (Acts 5:32, 1 John 3:24). We obey God by keeping His every word and His commands (Matt. 19:17, J...

Mystical,

I believe the NWT was first published in 1961. A number of revisions have apparently been done since then.

Hi Jbuza, You said, Yes. I believe that we must confess to God. We must ask God to forgive where we have failed, and seek a right relationship and guidence from his spirit. Whenever we let the flesh have power we must ask a faithful and just God to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I would agree ...

Hi Jbuza, Your initial question was, Perhaps you could show me how the Law of Sacrifice continues to apply to my life. In return I asked, What of the sins you have yet to commit? If you repent of them, are they covered under a different sacrifice? You response, I would say no, the sacrificing is all...

Jac, You have misrepresented what I said. I am just saying that you are incorrect in your assertion that it CANNOT be rendered "with." I never claimed pros cannot be rendered "with". My claim is that John 1:1 is more accurately understood when pros is rendered to or towards , which you also must adm...

Jbuza, You asked, Perhaps you could show me how the Law of Sacrifice continues to apply to my life. I would be happy to; however, what shall I do with all the things you have said to me that lead me to believe you have already determined what I might tell you next about the law is pointless? E.g., I...

Jac, You're free to take issue if you choose. Your position will obviously be biased because you hold the doctrine of the Trinity. I was also a Trinitarian once and then later a Binitarian for a number of years until my eyes were opened. I don't expect to convince you or anyone else of anything. I'm...
