Ro 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
As Sesible has already stated, here Paul is asking a question for the very purpose of answering their question.
Shall we continue in sin, that this grace you teach about may abound. See, some lyers had been saying that Paul taught this. He is about to dispell this delusion.
Ro 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
God forbid. Forbid what? That we CONTINUE IN SIN. Grace did NOT give anyone the license to continue in sin. God forbids this.
We that are DEAD TO SIN. Who is DEAD TO SIN? According to most of you church folks, no one is dead to sin. But According to this, some people ARE DEAD TO SIN. Else why ask this question? How shall — WE— THAT — ARE— DEAD — TO — SIN–. There you have it. Some are dead to sin. who?
How shall this group who is dead to sin, live any longer in sin? It cannot be.
Ro 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Somebody was BAPTIZED into Jesus Christ. Who? Those who received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost according to Acts 2:38. By ONE Spirit are we Baptized INTO ONE BODY. This is the ONE AND ONLY WAY OF BEING PLACED INTO THE BODY OF JESUS.
No sin is in the body of Jesus. If you have been baptized into this body of Chirst, You are DEAD TO SIN. NO LONGER LIVING IN SIN. GOD FORBIDS THIS.
Ro 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
See, that we were BAPTIZED INTO THIS DEATH. What death? Dead to sin.
We died there with Jesus.
We were then raised up same as Jesus to WALK, each day, in NEWNESS of LIFE.
Sin is death. Life is salvation. So where are you? Dead in sins? Or dead to sin? It has to be one or the other.
Dead in trespasses and sins. Alive to God. Which are you? See that we are teaching exactly what the Word of God says?
Ro 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
IF…….we have been planted in the likeness of his death, (Baptism)………. we shall be also in the LIKENESS (new living, Holy living)–of his RESURRECTION.
Was he RESURRECTED back into sin? Nope. Then how can you say you are in the likeness of his resurrection, and are full of sin?
Is this the LIKENESS OF HIS RESURRECTION? ARE YOU SAYING WHEN JESUS WAS RESURRECTED, HE WAS FULL OF SIN?
Then if you are in that likeness, how can you say you are full of sin?
Better listen to the Word and not all these new agers running around screeming out their own shame.
Date Posted：09/05/2010 3:34 AMCopy HTMLSince we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?
As long as we continue to live in Jesus , we won’t sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. If you continue is sin you have not met him and neither are you known of him. He died to take away all the sins of the world. So why do you continue in sin and say I am a saved sinner, saved by grace? You must not understand what Grace is? This makes no sense to me.
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God, whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God,
When people keep on sinning, it shows they belong to the Devil, who has been sinning since the beginning.
But the Son of God came to destroy these works of the Devil. Those who have been born into God’s family do not sin, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they have been born of God. God knows no sin. If you are born of God you don’t keep on sinning, because sin is an iniquity with God. If you continue in sin you are not a child of God but you are a child of Satan.
The wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Let sin not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Sin is no longer your master, for you are no longer subject to the law. So since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does this mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
