Are your doctrines sinful or holy?


Do the doctrines you trust in provide occasions or excuses for the flesh (sin) or do they promote holiness in the fear of God? For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. Galatians 5:13 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Romans 6:22 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. [8] Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matthew 5:6,8 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord ? or who shall stand in his holy place? [4] He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. [5] He shall receive the blessing from the Lord , and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Psalm 24:3-5 A classic example of a sinful doctrine that provides occasions for the flesh and does not ultimately promote holiness is OSAS. OSAS says one can sin, not repent and still go to heaven. The preservation of the saints is but a variation of OSAS and the outcome is no different. They both claim a holiness but allowing sin leavens the whole lump...
