This is a discipleship passage, that speaks to the commitment required for discipleship. Is it a consequence from not being in the word.

I am so thankful for the washing (sanctifying and cleansing) of the inside of this cup that has come through the washing of the water by the Word. THUS Paul would NEVER have had the mentality of Romans 7:14-28 “before” conversion. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. The fact that even though we all still sin and yet we are still saved proves its truth, i.e., that it is by GRACE, the unmerited favor, UNDESERVED kindness of God toward us. This gospel is built, not on a doctrine or a theology, but on Jesus Christ himself: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. Universal truth is not measured in mass appeal. Some followers of Jesus are unsaved (Matthew 7:21-23). Another word for redeem is ransom. We desire to warn , mark and expose those who would take away the Power of the Shed Blood of Jesus to set souls free to be who they are In Christ Jesus and to be an Original Voice and not a copy of the latest Trend teacher’s twisted gospel message. OSAS is an irrefutable doctrine, and to say otherwise would be to give more credence to man-made analogies than God’s clear Word, and God knows I’ve allowed myself to be tossed about by the former; what a waste of precious time. Instead.It is presented as the “gospel of prosperity” and “gospel of healing”, and “claiming your victory.”. If you insist humanity was included, saved, and sanctified in Christ 2000 years ago and humanity is now seated with Christ in heavenly places, you have quite a few contrary scriptures to deal with, including this one: “You were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation.

Some might read this and get upset, but I didn’t say it, John Piper and his staff did! Thank You for saving me. Your claim sees Him more like an example, and if you are to follow him and do what He did, then do not stop half way, dare also to die and resurrect on the third day…. I wonder why? Paul makes this clear distinction in Gal. We have people like Missler who are teaching Purgatory, and Jack Van Impe professing Roman Catholicism. We were ungodly when he justified us. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. If I’m wrong in any area someone please correct my mistake so we may all benefit and grow in Him.

It was not until after conversion where Paul realized, no good thing dwells in the flesh (Rom 7), and that he should put no confidence in the flesh (Phil 3:3). Rom 7:24 O wretched man that I am!

I absolutely, unconditionnally love these Words: Its just that I am still a sinner and make mistakes. Stu, I have no idea whether your apparent current state of disbelief means that you have never trusted in Christ as your personal Savior. God doesn’t make sense sometimes.
