  • Romans 6

    Peace Mr. Hebrew,

    I told you I was going to pester you a bit, and this is the begginning.

    I have finally understood the Grace that you speak of.

    If I might be correct in saying so, when we sin, we keep the Law, because we have Faith that Messiah is our sacrifice, and thereby cleansing us of our sin because we have admitted to sinning by killing Messiah. (Is that a run-on sentence?)

    So then, I would like to bring up this, and see how my understanding correlates with what you have said:
    Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
    14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
    15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
    Would it now be safe to say that those who do not believe are under the law and those who do are under grace? Those who believe and do turn from thier sin, keep the Law perfectly because of grace? If I am correct, this is because those who believe, when they sin, sacrifice Messiah, therefore making themselves rightous by keeping the Law. And those who do not, are under the Law because they do not make themselves rightous, and continue in sin? For this however we should not sin because we are keeping the Law. (This is one heck of a circle.)

    ANYWHO, I would like to ask how this has all changed since the coming of Messiah. It is apparent that people were under the Law before Messiah:

    Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
    This is unless she did not believe, but I do not think that is the case. Anyways, what changes? The sacrifice of the red hiefer was an offering that cleansed people of sin, why then were they under the law? Was it the actual performance of the sacrifice they were under. I'll stop there, I have questions till the cows come home. Peace.

    Peace Mr. Hebrew,

    I was talking with Mr. Hyssop, and he pointed out that I said this:
    If I am correct, this is because those who believe, when they sin, sacrifice Messiah,
    However, Hebrews 6 says that those who fall away. So then what happens with sins commited by a believer that is righteous? Does every sin that is commited sacrifice Messiah?
