Anyone who does not understand sin and its poisonous fruits will indulge in it in ignorance, but those who know the power of righteousness will understand their inheritance in Christ. The message of salvation is the message of being saved by God from the destructive power of sin, and the release of the blessing of God upon those the Lord has saved. When we declared Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, we were saved from the life of sin into the holiness of God. It would be difficult for you to understand salvation without understanding what you have been saved from. The gospel of salvation is the gospel of the power of righteousness, it is not the gospel of sin.
After questioning one gets to the point that the reason for existence of mankind is passing immortality and eternal life. The atonement of Jesus Christ is the wonderful support in life. As said by Detroit Interfaith Council in Sin and Atonement, Repentance and Redemption in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “Because this plan allows for our imperfections, sins, and mistakes, there is also a need for an atonement and for an Atoner andRedeemer. “. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus Christ suffered harsh death, atoning for the people’s sins.
God did not want a motherless child, but the soul and free will the drunk driver possesses allowed him to make his own decision to drive under the influence. God is not the scribe of evil, evil is the reflection from a fallen world as the result of man and satan. James 1:13 says, “God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all”. Accordingly, if Christ has no darkness in him, he can not create evil; it is like building a brick wall with no bricks. So, it is stated in the Bible that He does make good of all, that does not mean he created the evil he allows to have some positive outcome.
For “… great is your reward in heaven…” (Matthew 5:12). Anything that we accumulate on Earth will not withstand the greatness for what God has instore because his reward is eternal. Our desire for greatness could be what keeps us from it all
Jesus is saying blessed are they who are without worldly ambition and who feel themselves spiritually bankrupt. He is not though teaching that poverty in itself is a blessing but poverty in the spirit in the sense of humility is a help rather than a hindrance of citizenship in his Kingdom. Jesus knew very well man's tendency to pride; pride of knowledge, pride of achievement, pride of character, pride of virtue, and all the rest of things man takes pride in. So he begins with a beatitude which is of primary and fundamental importance to the Kingdom. He proclaimed blessed are those who have succeeded in slaying pride.
Here, David says the Lord is light and He is salvation which means He guides and provides deliverance. God will guide you with His word and he will answer all your tribulations. God also adds joy to people’s lives. “The LORD is the stronghold of my life,” He provides with a source of strength to overcome difficult times in your life. Furthermore, He will show you the right path to take when you’re facing troubles in your life.
A healed sin becomes reconciling friendship, becoming a source for fuller healing that embraces all. One can only redeem their sin if their redemption is done by heart and is meaningful. People who do not experience forgiveness, guilt swallows them up and they feel as if they are drowning. As Richard Baxter said, “that sorrow, even for sin, may be overmuch. That overmuch sorrow swalloweth one up.” Hence, a true redemption can only lead to a healed sin.
Human beings have the ability to sin because of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God is not a sinner, it is human beings that choose to sin. Human beings are responsible for the evil in the world (132). While others believe that humans are born sinful, but with the help from God human beings are able to seek salvation. Pelagius’ writings emphasize goodness within humanity.
He mentions “sin” and “righteousness” which are words for “right” and “wrong”—the subjects of every hearing and court case. Here Jesus says that the Holy Spirit will carry out a ministry of acting as the prosecuting attorney of the soul, convicting all unbelievers continually about the truth, using divine revelation in tandem with their ever-present conscience. This work of the Holy Spirit is non-stop, universal, real and efficacious. He makes sinners feel guilt. All humans feel guilt.
