God Will Remove the Stumbling bBocks of Word Games
“ I’ve heard some really strange things here from believers who have some fantastic insight into grace, but have threads of legalistic views entwined in the very grace they speak of and cannot see it. I’m sure that all of my views are not the final say by any means and that God willing (I KNOW that He is) I will become of any worldly fabrications that I myself possess and trust the Lord to remove these stumbling blocks
SHOVEL: For I determined to know nothing among you except Christ and Him crucified. Remember that? How simple it is.
FRIEND: YES, I am crucified with Christ daily BUT NEVERTHELESS I live, but not I BUT CHRIST THAT LIVETH IN ME
SHOVEL: Don’t lean upon the daily thing, the tense is that you HAVE BEEN crucified with Christ. Done, finished! Now, do you see the ” among you“ in the verse, I quoted, 1 Cor 2:2?
SHOVEL: Paul said he determined to know nothing among THEM except Christ and Him crucified!! Why do you suppose he said that?”
This is intense to the extremely stimulating grace discussion. One is either of the belief we are either alive to Christ/the Spirit of God is in us or it is not the case. “ God remove any block I create.”
