I grew up with a father that loved Paul Harvey. I also loved to listen to Paul. Father is still with us, yet Paul and so many of the men, which influenced my life, have gone on to see, our Lord and Savior. Paul Harvey was a Prophet for his time. Who will God give us for today? Is it you or I? God forbid, for I am a man of unclean lips. Cleans me oh God, use me. What is your prayer?

Barbara J Ferraro, thanks for sharing your insight & wisdom! Sadly, my generation and the one after it seem to want to say, "Ohhhh...it's not that bad". But be encouraged that some of us DO realize IT IS that bad!

Luke Skarin "Why, then, did Jesus give us guidelines on how to correct sinful behavior?" Luke, Jesus provided many guidelines? Do you keep them all? Have you poked out your eye, cut off your hand or sold everything you own? Which ones do you agree to keep and which ones don't you, and why? Jesus' intent was not to make you secure with what He taught. What He taught was meant to show everyone they are guilty and beyond being able to do anything to be acceptable to God. If you are of the mindset that you're doing anything to maintain your relationship with God, you've actually fallen from Grace. Remember what grace means, undeserved & unmerited favor from God. If you're doing anything it's deserved or merited and you have something to boast about and you've left the righteousness of God and are again trying to establish your own. Q: "So, one can just sin and never repent and they are ok?" You missed my first comment in the last post. "Where there is no law, there is no sin" The law was nailed to the tree with Jesus. God abolished the first covenant (the law) so he could establish the second. If God has removed the measuring stick, He's not seeing sin anymore. That's why I can boldly state I'm not a sinner and neither are you (in God's eyes). Christianity has resurrected what God crucified (the law) so they can seek to establish their own righteousness and accuse others who don't believe or act in the same manner as they do. Q: No one needs to come to Jesus and confess with their heart and tongue that He is Lord and our savior? No one has come to Jesus. He first loved us. Isn't it amazing that American Christianity has created a doctrine that doesn't exist in the bible, that we must invite Jesus into our hearts. It's not there. So what happens? We immediately come into a religion based on what we do, not what God has done. It's backwards. Jesus is Lord, and I'm quite certain that all will make that confession. But you and I didn't make him Lord, God did. It's like if there was a prince or a lord in England. Do any of the English subjects make that person Lord? That is ridiculous. JESUS IS LORD, but you, me or no one else made him that way. If the sinful nature still existed, it would be impossible for someone to come to God. The sinful nature is at enmity with God, and cannot come to God, so God had to do something about that, and He did! Religion just screwed it up and told us that we had to do something instead of just proclaiming the good news of what's been done. People do have a "saving" experience. I had one. But that experience was my mind being renewed to a reality that had already occurred. "While we were yet sinners we were reconciled to God", that happened before you and I were born (2000 years ago). You and I weren't even born sinners but we were told we were, weren't we? And because we believed it, and we believed we actually had a choice in our redemption, after we accepted the lie (just like Adam) we got set up to get onto the rat wheel of doing something to add to the work of the cross of Christ. "Actually anytime you sinned, in the old way, you were to make a sacrifice, not just once a year." Leviticus 4, I'm familiar. I was quoting from Hebrews, which talks about Jesus' sacrifice removing the sin conscious and comparing it to the sin sacrifice the brought the remembrance of sin once a year. Whether it's everyday or once a year probably isn't relevant to the principle being discussed, but thanks for keeping me on my toes :) Luke, I wouldn't want anyone to just agree with "anything" I say without verifying for themselves. I'm just very familiar with the American Christian mindset, and truthfully, my comments on these sites are designed to encourage Christians in the gospel. I lived in Christianity for a number of years, thinking it was my repentance my confession and my commitment that established my relationship with God. Then I "heard" the gospel and all of my righteousness, all of my declarations, all of my command keeping became as filthy rags, and I gloried in the hearing of what God has done. You're right, you are secure, Jesus took care of that for both of us! In that, we can both have great comfort and confidence. Good News!!

Talk about calling the future...

Wow! Scarey how dead on he is.

Rhonda Nolde and Barbara F..... Of course all you say is correct, but Colin is also right in a way, in that, since the fall, without the Savior the heart of man has always been black with sin and drawn toward evil. That is what we" keep on doing". But with each generation, and increasing population, and media technology, we see it manifested in the public eye more, and becoming more "common"and no longer as shocking. And "it" will Never get better, only worse! I for one look forward to the end of this world and the beginning of eternity with an awesome God!

Jeff Markley Why, then, did Jesus give us guidelines on how to correct sinful behavior? So, one can just sin and never repent and they are ok? No one needs to come to Jesus and confess with their heart and tongue that He is Lord and our savior? Actually anytime you sinned, in the old way, you were to make a sacrifice, not just once a year. Believe me, I am not insulted, I just don't agree with everything you are saying. I am in the Word and I know Jesus, my reward is secure. God bless.

its not new but its not good. See Genesis 2:25-3:1 I love and miss your profound broadcasts Paul Harvey!

Rhonda Nolde One final note. Sometimes people misunderstand this whole point. They say, "Well Jeff, you're saying there's no room for correction to anyone". That's not at all what I'm saying. What I am saying is that using God's law to create a fear of consequences from God to promote change is an abomination, anti gospel, and anti-Christ, and that's what I'm against. I'm all for helping one another out, pointing out things that concern us about each others lives and where poor decisions may lead to. That requires trust though, and a strong relationship. What I've observed in my life is that trust is built through unconditional acceptance of one another, and to the degree we don't think we, or others, are unconditionally accepted by God, we tend to project that into the relationship...at least I know I did. To drive that point home even deeper. My wife was molested by her step dad (the only dad she knew) from the time she was 10 until she was 14. The gospel has changed her heart to a point where the she unconditionally accepts this person in her life. Now that is power, it is the saving of the soul!

Luke Skarin Luke, where there is no law, there is no sin. Can we correct one another because our behavior is detrimental to our relationships with one another, or can we show care to another who trusts us enough to hear our concern about their choices? Absolutely! And we should. My point is that if we come at one another using God and His law as the justification for bringing correction, we've not comprehended true righteousness and the gospel of Jesus Christ. You took issue with my point about evil, and where it comes from. Do you understand what the weapon was that was formed against us? What device the devil actually uses and why it's effective? Why did Jesus call the most moral people, according to outward appearance, sons of their father the devil? It was because they were trying to climb up some other way, the way of their OWN righteousness. It had something more to do with accusing others and excusing themselves, the issue, the mindset was deeper then that. Modern day christianity is no different then judiasm. There's always something a christian will use to include or exclude someone from their group or from God's kingdom. The gospel does not do that. I'm not a sinner, I don't have that nature and neither do you, according to the gospel. You're a new creation, created in perfect righteousness. The only thing that stops you from believing that is the law mindset you still use to judge yourself or others by. You could tell me you robbed a bank, committed murder, had a homosexual encounter and I still wouldn't call you a sinner. I don't see that way anymore, the gospel has renewed my mind. I don't judge by outward appearance, I judge with righteous judgment and pronounce God's verdict towards his creation...NOT GUILTY!! I don't call something dirty that God cleansed. Remember that the sacrificial system in the old was a foreshadowing of the new. What did the high priest look at for the sacrifice of sin, to cleanse the people? How long did that sacrifice cover sins for? I don't mean to insult your intelligence by stating that which is recorded. But the sacrifice for sin was offered once a year, and the priest examined the animal, not the person who committed the sin. We had the perfect high priest offer the perfect sacrifice for once and for all to remove sin, to take it away completely. The true gospel purges your mind from this way of thinking. That's too much for some, I understand, but I tell you what, my heart and mind feels like it won the lottery. I get to tell people about what Jesus did for them, I get to herald a message that removes guilt and condemnation. I get to share the testimony of what God did in Christ, which was? God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.
