Self-Righteousness of Judaism, Cults, Sects, Islam, World Religions,
Quote from a stubborn, self-righteous, Judaizer on FB…
“Satan is so powerful. Obedience to God has now been entitiled [entitled or titled] as “Legalism” God have mercy.”
TRUE, RELEVANT, God-honoring, obedience is only possible by those who honor the Father by faith in the Son, Jesus Christ, and receive the Holy Spirit as Guarantor of covenant relationship (Galatians 5:16; John 3; Ephesians 1:13-14). Walking in obedience to the indwelling Holy Spirit via the conscience via the daily process of sanctification is the only way one honors the Father with works of righteousness that will endure to the end and be rewarded at the BEMA Judgment; all other forms of work and self-righteous obedience will be burned away as filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) and as futile and nihilistic arrogance that will ultimately convict the unbeliever of sin resulting in the “second death” in Hell subsequent adjudication manifesting at the Judgment of the Condemned (Revelation 20:11-15).
Where you err and falter as you’re daily dying in your sin, legalism and spiritual ignorance en route to death in Hell is your refusal to comprehend the theological truism that Law and vain attempts at obedience in the flesh will NOT earn anyone redemption from sin as the Law mandates absolute perfection and curses one to death in Hell because we are all sinners and the Law only defines our sin but provides ZERO atonement or hope (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:20-23; Galatians 3:10; James 2:10); therefore, unless one acknowledges and repents of their sin and truly acknowledges their inability to save them self by works of self-righteousness through law-keeping while confessing that Jesus is Messiah, our Lord, who suffered and died in our place to pay our sin-debt (John 3; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10)…a sin-debt owed the Father that we could NEVER pay our self through self-righteousness, unless one believes this and confesses this with a sincere heart, they will die in their sin along side you and they will perish in Hell in self-righteousness along side you (John 3).
Obedience to God’s will for your life is a GOOD thing but it’s only possible through obedience to the indwelling Holy Spirit who is only given to those who repent of their sin and sincerely confess, believe, trust, in Jesus as their Messiah (Ephesians 1:13-14; John 3).
The Christian does NOT deny the eternal relevance of respecting our Heavenly Father through obedience but the Christian rejects your self-righteousness and your arrogance that suggests humanity can find favor with our Holy God through our attempts in the flesh to keep a Law or be sufficiently obedient to please Him as the Christian knows that ONLY the “imputed righteousness” of Messiah Jesus by faith in Jesus as our Lord will the Father be pleased and establish covenant relationship with us, forever (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 8:12). He who denies the Son does NOT have the Father and is therefore a bastard child in Time and in Eternity living without hope or covenant (1 John 2:23).
