    Can you sin without the law?

      kessposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      There is sin within  the Law and Sin without law.
      For having the knowledge of good and evil brings with it "Sin".
      All law perpetuates sin.
      But Sin itself does not nor can ever exist, except to those who are sinners indeed.

        but, thats not scriptural, look at this  Roman 4:15 Romans 4:15
        Because the law worketh wrath: for where NO LAW is, [there is] no transgression. transgression is sin.

        Kess,

        Sin exists whether you are a sinner or not.... you just said it, "All law perpetates sin."

          The law reveals people's wrong doings, it does not cause them.
          Ridiculous.

        Sorry

        I am just a sinner but yet is alive

        I was born with a defect, a malicious effect

        In the beginning they chose the forbidden fruit

        Therefore I am now born with the devilish root

        Please restore Your child and bless me in Your name

        I need forgiveness I beg, please pardon, being I am only to blame

        My life is dying as I still am falling

        All wondering and wandering being obliterated

        I am so ashamed of how my sins are reiterated

        If only I could stop learning by experience

        I need to realize that its joy by obedience

        My Heavenly Father, the creator, died for me in expedience

        Knowing it’s for eternal immortality restitution

        Nevertheless, still I sin in vain

        Living a lie with an illuminate stain

        My life should be for His gain

        Instead I destroy it mindfully inane

        The faith I have but I lack the gift

        They say it’s simple but my soul is at rift

        Oh Lord, please sanctify with Your Holy blood so I may be on top of the cliff

        I am scared of tribulations and running from saying, if!

        Confused, lost, and just want to die, adrift

        On my knees I cried grasping I had grace

        Stood up and gave thanksgiving knowing He did set me free

        I praise and worship you Fatherly Love Christ Jesus

        In harmony, truth and spirit you reunited us

        I am cheerful wanting to dance like King David

        My soul is at rest now all blissful like cupid

        It is really a gain to live and die for Christ

        Excluding, the tribulation and persecution is very chastise

        In merciful peace my head is up being guided proud

        Yes, the Lord is coming back to a vicious crowd

        But victory was assured on Calvary

        So I say thank you Yeshua for being my reality

        I exalt your name on high for You only is worthy

      Please begin to read your bible in context. Whenever the NT talks about "the law" being superseded by faith, it isn't talking about God's Laws or the Torah, it is speaking of ONE specific directive... that of circumcision... the author is trying to explain that one does not have to be circumcised to honor God's covenant and receive its promised blessings.

        True

        Matthew 23:23
        Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

        circumcision is ordained by GOD THROUGH THE JEWS physically..but spiritually through the gentiles...physically it separated the Jews and the gentiles  but now spiritually it reunites the world to GOD AKA CHRIST JESUS
        AKA YHVH..........follow the commandments and love one another as thyself

        the confusion is just an illusion by the devil...you rule over the devil .read your Bible prayerfully and vigilantly than see the mystery

      If anyone sins, they are bound to the Law.
      For the law exists to manifest all the things of the human mind: good/evil; right/wrong.

      Before the Law manifest, sin was. Sin was the Knowledge of Good/Evil -which simply means indulging your own mind, your self.

      When the Law came it showed the sin, convicted it but was powerless to destroy it. So Faith came.
      Now the Law has fulfilled its purpose, all things can be brought --once more-- under Grace.

    Until someone told you that you are naked You were not Naked, you just were.

      Until someone told you that it was wrong for you to pick apples off of your neighbors tree and eat them ,... It wasn't.

      To do something that seems natural to do wasn't wrong until we began to believed that it was wrong.


      That is why you may not see something as being wrong and I do.
      I see how it is detrimental to me and I tell you that it is wrong. If you believe me and do it again , .  then you believe it is wrong so it is. You would also be lacking in the aspect of loving thy neighbor as thy self. But if you didn't believe that you were supposed to, would that be wrong??

      No, you realize you are naked when you know the meaning of naked. Not knowing makes you no less naked.

      If a person is old enough to pick apples off their neighbors tree, they know it is wrong if not invited to do so. They also know it is wrong for the neighbor or anyone to steal from them. And it is wrong even though you don't know it is.
      It is ridiculous to think something is wrong only when you know it is.

      A person has an innate knowledge of right and wrong.

      Something that is wrong, is wrong even if you think it's not.
      A Serial killer may not care what's right or wrong either.
      Many things you feel is OK will land you in jail.

        Paragliderposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I would question 'innate' here. A person cannot survive early childhood without being looked after and brought up by parents, guardians or society in general. This process of socialisation is what instills an awareness of the expected norms of behaviour. Ethics are societal at root. Innateness is an untestable theory as there can be no unsocialised people, by definition.

          I'll have to disagree. Although the brain grows and rewires itself up into the teenage years. The basic brain is wired by the time a child is 3 years old.
          Emotions, social reactions, and morals are wired in the part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex, just above the eyes.

          Knowing what is right or wrong is innate/inborn.
          Studies have been done on people with brain damage.

            Paragliderposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            A child doesn't get to be three years old without being socialised. Three days is longer than a newborn would survive without society.

            Prenatal or perinatal studies into awareness of right and wrong cannot be carried out. So at the very least, I think you'd have to accept that your assertion is untested.

              Sir, many studies have been done. In infants and adults.

              The most telling studies are those done with patients who have brain damage in the pre-frontal cortex at birth and as an adult.

              These people show more aggression, judgment and contempt for others. These studies confirm what part of the brain controls social responses and what happens when that part of the brain is damaged.

              So you know more than those who work in the field of Neuroscience?

            Ninjas come to mind first, but there are definitely parts of your own culture even that regard killing and stealing as a regular occupation. Military for example, let alone criminals. Kids don't have a concept of property and grab others' belongings as they like them without a hesitation. They learn to respect property over time, but this is a leaned virtue, not innate - and most still don't learn it fully as they support taxation. smile

            Kids kill smaller creatures on the spot, just out of curiosity, and would kill bigger ones including humans given a chance. smile

      Besides, thinking for oneself and actually checking if what one reads and hears matches their life experience is a useful virtue.
