Re: [jamesgodson] Sin Imputed (We Are Born Sinners)
jamesgodson: Hi. A lot of hard work went into your reply by the look of it.

This might just be semantics or a different 'flavor', but what are the new-born & those who have never heard actually saved from since according to Romans 1:18-20 - ALL have heard and they are without excuse and verse 21 continues showing their refusal to honor God.?

These words were addressed exclusively only to adults, presumably who could hear the gospel and make decisions for themselves.You can't have it both ways. 'Baptists' insist that "babies can't hear the gospel or have faith" so they can't be saved. But if they can't hear and therefore can't not believe that would mean they have a perfect excuse because they cannot therefore be included in the "ALL" that you suppose "heard without excuse through failing to believe".

And what about the natives in Outer Nowhere who have never ever yet heard "the gospel", are they also "without excuse"?

There is something wrong with your theology, I'll leave it to your good self to find out what that might be. There is some urgency about your finding out though because your wrong assumptions limit God's Grace and malign His character, that is a serious matter.

Let us walk by faith and not by sight and trust Him with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding, but acknowledge Him in all our ways & He will direct our path.

It would be truly wonderful if we all had the full degree of faith that Jesus had. Unfortunately not many of us get past the mustard seed sized variety. I don't know how many miraculous healings you have managed to perform through 'walking by your faith', but concentrating entirely upon 'doing faith walking miracles', rather than studying modern medicine, engineering, physics, economics, agriculture etc. seems to me to be failing to do what we can do, and trying to do what we can't do. In other words, wasting our time here on earth NOT doing what we could do to improve things, and all to the Glory of God, because we would be doing it 'in faith and gratitude for what God has done for us'. (Read my signature).

It may be that failing to do what we could have done, will be what we are accused of when we finally face our Master. Matt.25:25-28. I do think you will be told off for not even having enough faith to 'go about doing good' like Jesus did.

I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Rom.12:3.

God gave you a brain and a mind and a responsibility to use them to The Glory of God. Constantly knocking on Jesus' prayer door expecting Him to fix all your problems for you is not using the strength, mind and soul you should be "Loving the Lord your God with".

Consequences might follow from that at the Great White Throne.

In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 2 Cor. 5:19. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
