You Must Be Sin's Master

Icyspark View Post

The story of Cain and Abel is a sad one, but as one of the stories "in the beginning" it reveals from the start how God wants His children to respond to sin.

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever (Re 1:5b-6, emphasis mine).

Little late in the day to not have been cleansed from from sin (Lk 21:36). :straight:

What the Scriptures actually say is that sin will not be our master. Why?  Because we are not under law, but under grace.

If indeed you are under grace (1 Ti 1:9).  If you are, then you know that :listen: our law is higher not lower (Mt 5-7).

Baptism is essentially a bath.

For many that is true.

Our participation in foot washing is not the same as a bath…...

Are you a manicurist?

I'm not sure how Luke 21:36 has anything to do with the topic at hand.

That's a shame (Jn 8:37).

[For many baptism is only getting wet] Do you believe otherwise?

What did the Lord say? To announce forgiveness to the prisoners of sin (Lk 4:18b, GWT). Was there a turning from sin (Ac 9:35) or did they just get wet?

[Washes feet when not a manicurist] No. Why? Was Jesus a manicurist?

It’s awfully nice of you to wash people’s feet if you’d like.

[Jn 8:37] If that is your way of attacking me with Scripture, then it's not very subtle, applicable or even acceptable (per CARM rules).

:yawn: Tell the moderators (Ro 14:4, Ps 105:15).

If you have something pertinent to say, then just say it.

:yawn: Who cares what I have to say? What do the scriptures have to say? Ac 20:20

Otherwise don't bother wasting our time posting unrelated texts…

:yawn: I believe his word has no place in you (Jn 8:37). You claim it does. Let the reader decide (Eph 4:14).

[What do the scriptures have to say? Ac 20:20] Your words have no relevance...

:yawn: God's words are all-relevant (Eph 4:14).

...But "Your words have no relevance..."
