Care to explain why you won't answer our questions but keep repeating yourself, even after we have answered you? And care to explain why you never seem to remember the following, that I have put down on here before?That amounts to little less than trash talk, if you cannot explain to us why this isn't the "true word of God"--or how you comport it to your theology:
1 John 2:3-4 ---King James Version (KJV)
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Romans 6:22---King James Version
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
1 John 3:7---King James Version
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
Romans 2:5-11---King James Version
5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good,to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
Acts 5:31-32---King James Version
31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
Those are just some of the scriptures I posted on this page alone--and it defies Lutheran theology--and you, nor anyone else, have attempted to extricate yourself from the implications of it's testimony. In fact--I don't believe it's possible, and possibly, neither do you, as it has not been touched, save it be the Taint so!!! responses, IE--"I already answered that"---"out of context"--yada, yada, yada.
Care to engage those scriptures--and explain how you correlate your theology--with the Biblical testimony above?
The Obedience Which Is Faith — Romans 1:5 and 16:26 – Grace Evangelical Society (faithalone.org)
Saving faith is obedience
Commenting on our expression in Rom 1:5, Anders Nygren writes,
Here is a fair treatment of the text. Paul is simply speaking of the obedience which is faith.One receives in faith that which God proffers us through Christ. This is “the obedience of faith.” (Romans, p. 55)
It is biblically correct to speak of faith as an act of obedience. After all, God commands us to believe the Gospel (e.g., Acts 16:31).
Support for this view is seen in many passages. Acts 6:7 says that “many of the priests were obedient to the faith.” Romans 10:16 and 2 Thess 1:8 speak of obeying or disobeying the Gospel. See also, John 3:36; 6:28-29; 1 Pet 1:2, 22; 2:7-8; and Acts 5:32.
CONCLUSIONJesus called for people to believe in Him. Thus whenever anyone believes in Him, he is obeying Him. Saving faith is an act of obedience.
So, you should not be bothered by the idea of faith as an act of obedience.
The obedience of faith spoken of in Rom 1:5 and 16:26 does not refer to obeying all that God has commanded. No one but the Lord Jesus has done that. Rather, it refers specifically to obeying the command to believe the Gospel. If you’ve done that, you’ve exercised the obedience of faith.
