Right..when you boast in your ability to keep the law, your boasting is based upon pride and "all such boasting is evil" you'll get this eventually
Right, those who boast in the law are in the flesh..ego..."I"
The battle here is between Christ, and the "I". Who do suppose is right?
Ro 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Rahab
You are still not getting it. You are talking about "I" lying to save a life which is you doing the work and not Christ
Yes the battle is between "you" and Christ..and He is right..
No am not..Im talking about the Love of God working in me to work what is right. Its those who boast in the law that boast in their own ability.
How can you justify the "I" lying to save a life and having faith in Christ. It is either you doing the work or Christ not both.
there is not such a thing as lying by faith
Again, anytime you have the "I" doing anything that work is under the law, which is not of faith.
Sorry God works in a believer through love not through legalism. Legalism is self-righteous ability.
Right..now your getting it...we are not under the law we are under the commandment of Christ to love and save life.
Boasting in your ability is exactly what you are saying!!!! Christians never boast in their abilities.
Again, you can not love unless Christ is in control not you.
That's what the scripture call those who "boast" in their ability to keep the written code of the law! Not those who walk in love.
Right the "love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and a believer acts in accordance with that love.
So are you now claiming that God has complete control of your every action? Man you just keep digging a deeper hole...lol
Or are your trying to preach a standard to others, that you do not keep? AGAIN?
This is your definition of hypocrisy right?
1. the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform;
You say lies are part of the will of God. I guess any sin you do is the will of God, so tell me again what separated us from God to begin with? Was it's Satan lies to Adam and Eve. What I'm learning here is nothing I want or need to know about fellow Christians. Some of whom I had a better opinion of than I do now. Truth is a basic plank of my faith, and I'm sorry that you don't share it. The only times I have ever lied was against God's will, relying on my own abilities. God is truth not lies in a good cause. I take no joy or pride in this dialogue and I leave it disappointed that those who think lies are the will of God heap scorn and mockery, twisting scripture, on top of those who disagree with them. Attacking people doesn't make you right nor does calling them boastful. To say that implies that you already know lies are wrong and not a part of God's will. Or His love. But then you know better than I and all of scripture.
