Does your heavenly exclusion clause also apply to everyone who is intellectually incapable of understanding ‘the biblical definition’ of sin.
again—intellect and reasoning have nothing to do with it.
what did Jesus plainly say—without exception?
Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
many are jumpin and sayin “I have this child, or this friend , or this GREAT GUY who cant…”
Ro 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
Ro 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
Ro 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Ro 2:15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another
Ro 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
OK—some of you are saying ‘PHHEWWWW’—
this guy is a great guy—he is so sweet, humble and loving.
but guess what.
as many have sinned “without the law”—shall perish without the law.
an incompetent(lack of better word) person mentally is “without the law”—since he doesnt understand it.
BUT——WHAT DOES ROMANS 3:23 SAY?
Ro 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
Ro 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Ro 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Ro 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
ALL HAVE SINNED—INCLUDING THE SUBJECTS OF THIS DISCUSSION.
So—if they sin “without the law”—and cant “be born again” because of the lack of mental awareness…
how does anyone justify God having 2 sets of rules?
this is a very DIVISIVE topic, but scriptures were asked for—
and here they are.
SANCTIFICATION—IS NOT JUSTIFICATION.
some beleive aborted or early death babies are “sanctified”, and are part of the Resurrection of the Just(1st res in rev 20:4-6)
some hold firm to the scriptures I posted.
some foolishly equate the “faith of children” meaning kids.(wrong)
WE ARE ALL BORN INTO ADAMIC SIN—WE ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD AT CONCEPTION.(psalm 51)
unless one is BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT—THE 2ND DEATH.
its called JUSTICE.
all these problems and discussions—are because our “father” adam took it upon himself to “separate” a perfect FELLOWSHIP.
now—we have to struggle—to get it back.
and because many “christians” blaspheme ALL “calvinistic” thinking because they disaggee with “1 petal or more”—
that they “refuse to beleive like calvin” in other theology.
this is nothing but denominational BANTER, thats originated with the FALSELY TRANSLATED WORD “CHURCH”.
