    I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear
    But when he, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth
    John16:12&13

    The true dividing line among those who attend church, the Holy Spirit, NOT denominations

    It is because it is not clearly written and hence the questions for clarification.

    If you are in willful unrepentant sin you are not in a saved state. Paul supports this statement (Romans 8:13; Romans 6:23; Romans 6:6; Romans 8:6; Romans 6:16; Hebrews 10:62-27; Hebrews 6:4-8; Romans 2:13-16; Romans 2:12-13 etc etc) No one has ever said we are saved by observing the law so not sure of the point your trying to make here. There is no error in God's Word it is truth.

    I asked you 5-6 question in my post for clarity on what you were saying in your earlier post. So what question are you referring to as there is not error in my post? Thanks for the update.

    None. Righteousness is by faith as soon as you believe God's Word. It is so if you believe God's Word. If you do not believe God's Word you are still in your sins.
    Gal 2:14-17 is talking about someone trying to earn salvation through the works of the Law and not Faith in God's Word not whether justification is instant or not.
    God is constantly leading people to him because he is not willing that any should perish but that all through faith in Him should be saved by His free gift of grace through the power of His Word in us who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. God is true make every man a liar that thou might be justified in thy sayings, and might overcome when thou art judged because the just shall live by faith. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. He that saith, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. This man is still in his sins and not born again. Do you know the scriptures quoted?

    I ignore now your citing of scripture to support what you write. For as I have, on numerous occasions shown you, you cite verses incorrectly in this regard. They either do not support what you write, or are not relevant to what you write.
    And it would take far too long to over them all

    Stuart a few points

    There is only sin in the flesh and if we live after the flesh we will die. If we do kill the deeds of the flesh through the Spirit we shall live (Romans 8:13 )

    You should not ignore God's Word on unrepentant sin because if we have sin that is known and there is no repentance. You do not know God and are in danger of the judgment and being lost. You know what Paul says (Hebrews 10:26-27; Hebrews 6:4-8; Romans 8:13; Romans 6:23; Romans 6:6; Romans 8:6; Romans 6:16; Romans 2:13-16; Romans 2:12-13 etc etc).

    David is not a comparison of unrepentant sin because he repented of his sin (2 Sam 12:13; Psalms 32; 51; 86; 122) so you there is no comparison as this is not an example of someone that is unrepentant.

    Hope this is helpful

    Romans 8
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded isdeath; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind isenmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    1 John 3:3-10
    3, And every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself, even as he is pure. 4, Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5, And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
    6, Whosoever abides in him sins not: whosoever sins has not seen him, neither known him. 7, Little children, let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8, He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9, Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10, In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.

    1 John 2:2-4
    3, And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4, He that saith, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
    It is the Holy Spirit that convicts of sin and of righteousness and the Judgement to come by the hearing or reading of God's Word (John 16:7-8; Romans 10:17; Romans 7:7-8; Matthew 4:4)
    No they Born again Christian relies on God's Word and they are saved by the faith they have in it. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. (1 Peter 1:23) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) This produces the fruit of obedience through love. (1 John 3:3-10; James 2:8-12; Romans 13:9-10; Romans 8:1-8)

    Hope this helps.

    It is ok Stuart, I know you never have. I provide the scripture though in hope that it may be a help to you. If any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. Let's agree to disagree and work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. May God help you and me.

    Ok have a nice day I have to go now.

    Not in the context you apply it to but in the context of Hebrews 10:26-27; Hebrews 6:4-8 and the many other scripture references I have provided you it certainly is. Goodnight friend.

    Yesterday you cited Matt5:19 as an endorsement of those who break Gods laws and encourage others to do so cannot attain to heaven.

    This is what Matt5:19 states:

    Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be least IN( IN) the kingdom of heaven. But whoever practices and teaches these commands will be great IN( IN) the kingdom of heaven

    You really need to check your scriptures.

    Are you saying now that if you sin you are going to Heaven?

    “Least in the Kingdom of Heaven” is not referring to those that will be in the Kingdom but those not in the Kingdom and those that are in the Kingdom referring to them as the least. Let's quickly look at the scriptures....

    Matthew 5:19
    Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments
    , and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven

    Who is the scripture referring to?
    Those that break God's Law and teach others to do the same.

    What will happen to those that are found in unrepentant sin when Jesus returns?

    Hebrews 10:26-27
    26, For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    9, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revellers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Galatians 5:19-21
    19, Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21, Envying’s, murders, drunkenness, revelling’s, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    Now it is clear in Matthew 15:19 that we are talking about someone that is breaking one of God’s commandments and teaching others to do so. They are called least in the Kingdom of Heaven by those that are in the Kingdom of Heaven because they are not going there. The supporting scriptures provided above (there are others also elsewhere) tell us what happens to those that break God’s commandments that they shall not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. This is compared to Matthew 5:19 which is talking about those breaking God’s commandments and are being referred to as also being the least in God’s Kingdom because they are teaching others to depart from the Kingdom of Heaven.

    This also includes the 7th Day Sabbath.

    Hope this helps. I have to go out for now have a nice day.

    You cannot rewrite the English language to suit your beliefs. In does not mean out and out does not mean in.
    It is just another in a long line of scriptures you cite to support your beliefs that do not support them.

    Try and quote scripture that may at least appear to support your beliefs, not scripture that plainly does not

    The born again Christian has the law God desires them to follow written in their minds and placed on their hearts by God himself. That is one of the two main clauses of the NC
    What is in your mind you in your mind must know. What is in your heart must bring heartfelt conviction of sin when you wilfully transgress it, for:
    Through the law we become conscious of sin. Rom3:20
    The truly born again spirit filled Christian does NOT( NOT) rely on reading law written in ink in the OT to know what sin is/ the law God desires them to follow. For their conviction regarding this comes from within, for that is where the law has been placed
