If we.. any of us.. put it off, refuse to choose and turn from sin to Christ.. there no viable hope. He is our living hope--He is viable for any of us.
So many people have surprise!.. been getting ambushed and totally wiped out by such evil, weird-religious and racist groups these days. We've all gotta be ready for anything. Life is short--drink some coffee and live awake. Pray for a biblical revival and a spiritual awakening. There's too much at stake. Be kind in an unkind world.
"Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam collapsed on them: Do you think that they were more sinful than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you. But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” ~ Jesus via Luke 13:5
Hey Buckaroo, if you are genuinely a spiritually born again Christian then you cannot long hide it on the outside–the love is real! He works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure–God changes us from the inside out, not vice versa. He loves you too much to leave you the way you are. But destructive sin is all that He wants to take from you–not your personality. Nothing more.
When Christ is living big on the inside of you (you’re allowing Jesus to be Lord of your decisions), your whole world view, attitudes, words, and actions will change. There will be good works not to gain salvation, but that verify salvation. It’s because we love Him so much–‘works meet for repentance’ as the Bible calls em. Listen, we never fight for salvation.
You know that we fight from salvation.. victoriously, but not in the flesh with people. We fight the good fight of Faith by the spirit of God. Merely religious-mean-lost people do the fighting in the flesh.
"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and tender-hearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you." ~ Paul, Ephesians 4:31-32
"Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart." Proverbs 3:3
