    It is through faith - faith that Christ has already done what is necessary. It is now up to us to believe (reckon means act on it as well) that our old man WAS crucified with Christ, and that we are now able to have victory over sin. Will try to post some writings on it but look up Holiness Movement writers.

    Maybe I am not fully comfortable with faith - you have people in this world that are *DIY* type of people they are in control and it works for them.

    Yes you will go round and round the foot of the mountain until you are delivered from th e power and presence of sin.

    You could start with reading the works of Daniel Steele for a start till I find something more.

    The Life and Writings of Daniel Steele

    There is no immediate fix for the situation you describe. It is like a 5 year old kid wanting to drive and own a house.

    You need to find an older mature christain man who will mentor (disciple) you and grow you up the way a parent grows up their 5 year old child.

    I have been told all these things to read the Pastor i met in the park gave me the RHAPSODY DEVOTIONS to read - I NEED GOD TO COME TO ME IN HIS MEGA POWER!

    Paul can be a mass murder then become a SAINT afterwards. Maybe that is the way to go! I dunno. I am TRYING HERE!

    Most of the church believes in 'gradual sanctification' and the results are obvious - it does not work. Try the way that does work.

    I am sick of people that are in the position of *FULFILMENT* to tell other to WAIT and TAKE THE JOURNEY - people like you make me sick.
    This is what makes people truly go their own path.

    Patience. And lots of it.

    The narrow way is hard. Its not easy. There is no 'quick fix'.

    Some people suffer all their lives but stay true to God. You have to offer up your suffering to God. Accept them. Its not easy, i know. Take each day as it comes. Keep your faith no matter how you are feeling. No matter what obstacles come your way.

    This is why people end things in life.

    I am gonna tell you this now - when somebody commits suicide and people say *THEY ARE GOING TO HELL* do you realise you have to be in a SAVAGELY DARK PLACE to kill yourself?

    So you kill yourself - to get away from the SAVAGE DARK PLACE - and then you end up in the pit of hell - do you think that is merciful and right?

    You mention suicide in another post. I know what those feelings are like. Its a horrible place. No amount of words can help. For me though, its my faith in God. Through very dark times i continued to turn to God. There is no other way.

    So a father is happy to allow his child to kill themself?

    Cos I dunno about you but if I had a child - I would prevent them from killing them self (IF I KNEW ABOUT IT)
