You are still not asking what to clarify.
Well, if that's the case, then you've failed to read anything I've stated.
I think we're done here.
You're so focused on your own sin, that you can't see what following Jesus entails.
As Paul told Titus---
9 But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless. 10 Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.
According to 2 Corinthians 10, we cannot avenge the disobedience of others until our own obedience is complete.
So, you want to walk in light?
According to Romans 8:1-8, we read the following
1 There is
therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
If you are in Christ, you are no longer under the condemnation of your sin. Jesus described that condemnation in John 3:18-20.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
God's Spirit has made us free from the law of sin and death, as described in Romans 6-7, and beyond.
3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did
by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,
I.e., Jesus took care of our problem. His life was perfect/whole/complete before God, so when he died, he could say--- it is finished! -- and it stuck. To prove it was acceptable to God, he raised Jesus from the dead, 3 days later. And as Paul tells us in Romans 4:23-25, Jesus was delivered for our offences, and raised for our justification. And as we read in Romans 5:1--- we HAVE been (past tense) justified with God, through faith in Jesus our Lord.
4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit
. 6 For to be carnally minded is
death, but to be spiritually minded is
life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is
enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
And in verses 4-8, we read that the only way to satisfy the righteous requirements of the law is to walk in the Spirit,
And the only way to walk according to the Spirit is to focus our thinking in Spiritual things.
So..... what choose you? Do you want to continue to struggle with sin? Or do you want to live a godly, righteous and holy life?
If the latter, focus your thinking on Spiritual things!
Isaiah tells us in 26:3-4, that God will keep us in Perfect Peace (Shalom Shalom) if we think on Him, because we trust in Him.
Paul tells us in Philippians 4:6-9 that we can live with a solution to anxiety-- prayer, and thanksgiving/gratitude. He further says that if we focus our thinking on pure, lovely, true, just, righteous, honorable, praiseworthy things--- God himself, who is the God of Peace will be with us.
Thus, we who are in Christ, we are new creations (2 Cor. 5:17), and have the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21), and are no longer under condemnation for our sin.
The next question that comes up from this is---- what are pure, lovely, just, righteous, praiseworthy....... things?
According to Psalm 19, we're given those.
7 The law of the LORD is
perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the LORD is
sure, making wise the simple;
8 The statutes of the LORD are
right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is
pure, enlightening the eyes;
9 The fear of the LORD is
clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the LORD are
So..... what are the Spiritual things we should be thinking on?
What did Jesus say about his words?
63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they
We who are in Christ, we've been given the Words of Life, Words of Spirit.
We're commanded, indeed, invited to place our focus on Jesus, because he himself is the author and finisher of our faith. As we read in Ephesians 2:8-10, We're saved by grace through faith, and not that of ourselves, for it is a gift..... Jesus authors our faith.
For we are God's workmanship, created for good works, prepared from the foundation of the world that we should walk in them...... As we further read on Phil. 1:6-- Knowing this, that he which began a good work in us, will complete it in the day of Christ....... thus, Jesus is the Finisher of our faith, ensuring that we make it home to be with Him.
As Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 1:12-----For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
He's able to keep that which we commit to him, until that day. Which is exactly what Jesus told us in John 17. The Father can hold on to us, and not lose us. This is why Jesus asked him to sanctify us through his word..... to set us apart to be his people.
Do these, and you will be as a well-watered vine, planted by rivers of living water. Psalm 1, Jeremiah 17:5-10, and John 15.
