thats why i dont believe in god..
everyones going to hell according to that book of lies..
No, not exactly. As Jesus said:
Matthew 19:26 — But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible: but with God all things are possible.
This is one of the reasons Jesus gave up his godly power to become human — to show that it IS possible to obey God’s Commandments. The catch is, it requires the spirit of God (which Jesus had in full measure), which most of humanity do not have. In other words, we can’t do it without God: we need him to put his spirit in us or we can never succeed.
Yes it is impossible to follow apart from the grace of God.
The natural man receives not the things of God.
Romans 3:9-18 NIV
No One is Righteous
9What shall we conclude then? Are we any better[b]? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin. 10As it is written:
":There is no one righteous, not even one:
11there is no one who understands,
no one who seeks God.
12All have turned away,
they have together become worthless:
there is no one who does good,
not even one.":[c]
13":Their throats are open graves:
their tongues practice deceit.":[d]
":The poison of vipers is on their lips.":[e]
14":Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.":[f]
15":Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16ruin and misery mark their ways,
17and the way of peace they do not know.":[g]
18":There is no fear of God before their eyes.":[h]
Yes God gave the law to prove that we are unable to live a perfect life while we are trapped in these fleshly bodies. Which is why God provided Jesus as a perfect sacrifice to stand in our place and receive the punishment that our sins demanded. He stood in our place that we may have eternal life in heaven.
nope. even though we are sinners, we can still follow some of his laws, and try our hardest. And if we do something wrong and against his law, we ask for forgiveness. God Bless You.
Yes, they are impossible to follow. That’s the purpose of Jesus’ death and resurrection. We are no longer slaves to the Law of God, we are under Grace. Jesus followed God’s law perfectly, the only one who has ever done so and He died a substitutionary death for you and me. So that while we cannot follow God’s law, we are declared righteous by our belief in Christ. Christ gives us supernatural power to follow God”s law and when we fall short, we are forgiven.
The laws dont save us, Gods Grace does
What that means is that God has a better plan for us than we can reach on our own. What this means is sin is not good. What this means is we are weak and easily manipulated. But God teaches us how not to be manipulated and he forgives us and shows us the way. He loves us and has showed it and still shows it.
No, but it does mean that something other than the law is necessary for salvation.
That’s why we need a Holy Redeemer … Jesus Christ … along with all the grace and mercy that he obtained for us, by his perfect and atoning sacrifice.
":1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.": God bless you all and give you his grace.
":James 4:6вЂ¦ he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.":
It isn’t just that we get to ask for forgiveness when we fail….we fail because we’re human and we can’t be perfect by our own strength. That’s where relying on God’s strength comes in. When we trust Him to guide us, we are able to overcome our humanness. That is, of course, a lifelong journey and process.
":The Don":, does that sound like ":Just because": to you?
