Doctrinal blindness...

Ok, this is a prime example of doctrinal blindness. This is someone who is so entrenched in their bad doctrine that they refuse to see the truths of God. This is what this person wrote: "Do a KJV Bible study of the word repent, and then look at the greek. Then read John and figure out why it was written and find a lack of the word. Then figure out what having eternal life means, and do you realize in your current position, in which is that of an unsaved person, you must live your life without sin to go to heaven... That means if you have told one lie, or you were just born with an adamic nature (therefore not born of a virgin), you are going to hell?" First of all, he claims that the actual word repent not being in John's Gospel gives support somehow in that perhaps repentance is not mandatory. I think that is the intent or perhaps maybe its just that repentance is not that important, I'm not really sure but it has to be something along those lines. Never mind that Jesus said in Luke 13:3 and 5 that unless one repents they will perish (spiritual death) and He also told folks multiple times in Revelation to repent. Yes, John wrote Revelation. Repentance, or at least the concept of repentance, is also found in John's Gospel. Yes it is only some folks are just too blind to see it. Here are a couple of examples: Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. John 5:14 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. [12] Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:11-12 Since repent literally means to change one's mind about something then choosing to not sin absolutely has to be flat out considered as repenting. From Strong's: Repent: metanoeó: to change one's mind or purpose. Original Word: μετανοέω Part of Speech: Verb Transliteration: metanoeó Definition: to change one's mind or purpose Usage: I repent, change my mind, change the inner man (particularly with reference to acceptance of the will of God), repent. With all that said I am not going spend too much time on addressing the "adamic nature" comment as this person's approach to scriptures is obviously twisted and wicked. It is tempting to use his own logic against him though and say that those words are not found in all of scriptures but you will find them in that old gnostic fox Augustine's writings and his wicked protege Calvin. We did not Inherit sin from Adam or anyone we choose to sin. Sin is not genetic, it is committed. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:20 (I encourage you to read all of this particular chapter and then chapters 3 and 33 as well) Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. Ecclesiastes 7:29

Question, do you worship the day? I guess the follow up qualifying question would be, are you a humanist who worships yourself? Seems that these are odd and hard hitting questions to self-professing C

People today are so blinded and misled by a false interpretation and application of Romans 13:1-2 that they roll over and say nothing as sin erupts unchallenged all around them. The mistake they make
