I felt compelled to write here as your posting, in my opinion, is verging on the self glorification of holiness and the disposition of judgement on other's posting.
The glorification of ourselves that we are able to keep away from sin by our own works is very dangerous, in my experience.
I do agree with you that the Bible is the Word of God and I believe it is the highest authority for the study of theology that is embarked by any one that calls herself/himself a Christian.
Lets look at what the Bible say regarding sin, law, righteousness and most of all Christ:
Starting from Romans 3:20 to 24
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
With these verses, my soul jumps for joy as my Saviour is the one that justifies me by His Grace, I am made righteous just by believing that Christ done it all and His blood is still cleansing me. Not by my works but by faith in Christ perfect works.
Look at verses 25 to 26:
God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
Wow! not by my obedience or the lack of it but by my Jesus' works on the cross.
Continue with verse 27:
Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith. (28)For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law
This is real POWER for me to really feel the grace and love of God and know that He made me righteous by His blood. No matter what I do or do not do, obey or do not obey, Jesus has made me righteous. This has given me power to lead a righteous and holy life and even should I fail (God forbid) in my moments of weaknesses, I am, and will still be righteous!! This is food for my soul and spirit!!
Your post said that the previous post of stating Romans 10:9 is incorrect just because the chapter started with brethren. I think that is a bit too presumptious, as this is solely your opinion of relating the starting of chapter salutation to the subsequent verses does not hold water. Wai Hun's posting was to edify fre3 and you find fault with Wai Hun's posting. What is the benefit and edification of these and to what glory does Christ sacrifices bring here?
Let God be God and be graceful to our fellow brethren and let us edify each other and continue to seek God and find the revelation of His Grace.
