  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    To look to Jesus on the stormy waters is the road to inner

    There is only one cure for self righteousness.

    A.) God's Grace

    The cure for self-righteousness is humiliation.
    Philippians 3:21 He will change the body of our humiliation to be conformed
    to the body of his glory, according to the working by which he is able even
    to subject all things to himself.

    He gives grace to the humbled.
    James 4:
    5
    Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain,
    The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously?
    6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
    God resists the proud,
    But gives grace to the humble.

    Conformed to His image.
    Acts 8:
    32
    The place in the Scripture which he read was this:
    He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
    And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
    So He opened not His mouth.
    33 In His humiliation His justice was taken away,
    And who will declare His generation?
    For His life is taken from the earth.

    When the Holy Spirit leads us to a place where the carnal nature
    is humiliated, to crucify the flesh, we are the better for it.
    He gives more Grace. Humbled to receive.

    The cure for self - righteousness, is to understand the Blood Atonement perfectly, and exit in this knowledge as the "renewed mind".
    The renewed mind is the TOTAL and PERFECT understanding of who you have become "in Christ' as the "New Creation" "In Christ".... according to GOD's perspective.
    To exist in THAT understanding as your mind, is Walking IN "the" Spirit.
