Christians (According to the Bible) Must Be Obedient
Debate Rounds (5)
Romans 6:1-2 - "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Let it not be. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?"
Hebrews 10:26-27 - "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Matthew 7:26-27 - "And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."
1 Corinthians 13:1 - "And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing."
1 Corinthians 13:4-5 - "Love suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up, does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil"
On a side note, the Greek word used, means to change your mind, or your inner self changing their mind (In regards to sin).
Again, according to YOUR type of Christianity, you need to repent. Maybe you're Catholic, maybe you're Lutheran, Mormon, Protestant, etc. But in MY religion, we "need not repent thy sins to be accepted into the Kingdom of the LORD."
All I'm saying is, this is an open-ended argument and therefore, there is no correct answer. It is all based off of opinionated beliefs. There is no physical proof and/or evidence and you pretty much decide whether or not you believe in such things. This is all religion and therefore this debate is useless and cannot be answered correctly with substantial proof.
I'm going to say this one more time, according to YOUR RELIGION!!! There are different bibles in correlation to different religions! I have a Nondenominational Bible, and Mormons have Mormon Bibles! That is in YOUR BIBLE!!! Not mine!
I asked my Bible Study Teacher (Elmbrook Church) and she said that there are only seven things that you need to know/believe in in order to go to heaven:
1. The Virgin Birth
2. The Sin-free life of Jesus
3. Jesus' death on the cross
4. The three days of Jesus' death
5. Jesus' Resurrection
6. His ascension into Heaven
7. The Holy Spirit
It doesn't say anywhere that we need to repent our sins in order to be accepted into the Kingdom of God. (Once again, this is MY religion. This is what I believe.)
