Yes you can have works without laws, but it takes being completely in tune with God by His Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, few have ever been so in tuned to the Holy Spirit as to be directed in such a way as to persistently set aside personal interest for the interest of others. From time to time we all give in to an inordinate need for self-protection. This fear and lack of faith cause us to do things that we would otherwise not do and hate ourselves for after we have done them.
So Cagsil I'm interested, how many people do you know who have loved in this way:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Cagsil may be you don't need God . Thats upto you. This whole thread is based on a verse from the scripture, that salvation depends not on works.... Anyways, you cannot convince people who have closed their eyes to somethings I am not even trying!! God bless you
When I read this question, my first answer is faith without works is dead. Without faith its impossible to please God. So if we were to put our faith into practice, we would simply not disobey God. This is a faith walk. And if we are walking in faith and not by sight, we would practice keeping all the commandments.
No you can not have works without God's laws. God's laws keep us governed, so that we can have good works.
I will also say this....When God created the heavens and the earth and all that was within...his works was evidence of his laws. Some call it the laws of nature. I call it the evidence of things not seen.
Let us see the context of the verse John 10:3023 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.24 Then came the Jews round about him. And said unto him, Howlong dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ,...
Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess)....
the love of God is the greatest gift that He has given us, for He has loved us inspite of our imperfection. thus, to prove our love in Him everyday could be the greatest response we can give. How about you?
