Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Differing Judgements

Differing judgement

 

As we stated before the mind functions either by the "knowledge of good and evil (the knowledge you were born with) or Grace knowledge (acquired revelation knowledge).

When I first came into this understanding of "Christ as the only life of the believer," and that's what it is "an understanding," I could see Christ in other believers for the first time.

I could see all the Father was doing now could be found "in Christ" only.

I noticed something was happening, I no longer had to judge other believers by their back ground, denomination or some other affiliation, what they believed, their bible reading, or even church attendance.

What began to happen was the mind was starting to function by grace with no effort of my own.

Grace knowledge will not make you perfect in soul, but it is a beginning into the understanding of what the Father has done in spirit.

You can not access the deep things of God (Christ in you) by law knowledge, only by grace, because the mind of Christ only functions in grace knowledge, Romans 5:2

2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 

You should underline the word "access" in verse 2.

Grace knowledge does not mean you will never sin again, it simply means you're mind will begin to function in unison with your new nature.

For instance; the new nature has in it "the fruit of the Spirit."

So you are not living life as just a you, or just a self person, but you start to live according to the new you, in oneness with the Christ within (this can also only happen by a revelation of Christ in you as your only life), Gal. 1:15-16

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

 

16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood

 

When we say "Christ in you," we are talking about the literal Spirit of Christ, the Son.

This is part of the rest, not having to judge everything and everyone in the world.

Yet the scriptures say "the spiritual man will judge all things."

That judgement is made based on your understanding of the Christ in you.

You judge other believers to be in Christ, and you view humanity as being created in the image and likeness of God, no longer judging the world.

There is only one to judge, leave that to the wisdom and sovereignty of God, Romans 2:1-2

2 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

 

You do what He called you to do and you will have plenty to do, you will not have time to solve the worlds problems.

We wonder why we're always in and out of trouble, trying to work things out, quit judging everything that moves, you're no good at it so you might as well stop.

When we judge we will be judged by that same judgement, can you see that, it's quite simple.

I have known many self proclaimed prophets and ministers in my time, always claiming something God had said, and most stayed in some kind of trouble, having to lay blame on the devil their trouble.

So revelation becomes imparative to understand what God is doing, in Christ as well as in the world.

Now the mind begins to express Christ based on the amount of revelation it recieve's.

The amount of revelation depends on how much the believer is willing to yield their mind to the HolySpirit.

Christ will live His life through you by the renewing of your mind.

That is basically how you shall judge all things, 1 Cor. 2:15

But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

Who can judge you when you have already judged yourself to be in Christ, and the world to be in the image and likeness of God.
