More words of manipulation and deceit, that is what you do with your little arguments like the one above and they might sound sufisticated unto the ignorant but not unto someone who has any real discernment of the Holy Spirit.Claiming your conclusion as support for the justification of that conclusion is circular. You're are giving reasons why you think Jesus is the righteousness of God in 2 Peter 1:1 as opposed to "our God and Savor". And, your theology doesn't count. Biblical evidence please.
I don't think that this was the intended meaning by Peter, but I know it was in complete settled confidence, and something of which you can never truly have with your false doctrine because the Holy Spirit cannot endorse it as the truth in your heart when it isn't the truth.
Therefore any confidence you might in your deception think that you have, will soon enough vanish.
So in short, the reason you believe Jesus is the righteousness of God is because of the discernment of the Holy Spirit. There no reason, logic, or Scriptural justification. You just have divine help and I don't. I'm sure that will lead so many people into joining your ranks. It worked for tons of Cult leaders like Joseph Smith, Muhammad, Mary Baker Eddy, Jim Jones, etc. And as an outsider, the is no ligitimate way I can check anything. I just need to bow the knee to your insight.
For the fact is, that the only thing that the narative of Genesis 18 can actually reveal for certain, is that Yahweh was that Yahweh God appeared and spoke to Abraham, but it does not support your added idea that this was Jesus Christ in a pre incarnate form like many of your cult claimes that it does...
FYI, If Yahweh God appeared and spoke to Abraham, and "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." John 1:18, then that Yahweh God was Jesus. QED.
You have to use that and believe that, because otherwise you would be left with the fact that you are teaching false doctrine about this verse and therefore of course you are going to throw it back on to me with your "you are literally grasping at straws here" excuse for your own error about it.You are literally grasping at straws here. God being in Christ manifesting himself through him doesn't make Jesus "the righteousness of our God and Savior."
That is all part of the deception that you are being deceived with.
No, Yahweh will increase has to declare God being in Christ manifesting himself through him makes Jesus "the righteousness of our God and Savior" because otherwise he would be left with the fact that he is teaching false doctrine about this verse. But in reality, there is no connection here at all. You're grasping at straws to justify a vacuous claim. Give me an actual reason why Jesus is "the righteousness of our God and Savior"?
LOL! Once again, you are so blind and bias with false doctrine and the delusion that God has sent to you because you don't love the truth, that you don't even realize what you are doing, for you believe that Jesus had his own righteousness being God the Son and that is the same exact thing.I am not arguing that at all. You're the one saying Jesus is the righteousness; I'm not. I am simply recognizing that "Jesus Christ" is a genitive of apposition to the phrase "our God and Savor" in the Greek of 2 Peter 1:1. In this discussion, I'm simply interested in how you rationalize your position.
And, why should I not believe you are so blind and bias with false doctrine and the delusion that God has sent to you because you don't love the truth, that you don't even realize what you are doing? Oh yeah, only one of us can act like that. Are you going to interact with what I said, or just throw out more unjustified accusations?
LOL! You and your worthless human reasoning and intellectual bunk "I am simply recognizing that "Jesus Christ" is a genitive of apposition to the phrase "our God and Savior".
Well then, I am simply recognizing that "Jesus Christ" is a gentive of apposition to the full phrase "the righteousness of our God and Savior"
That's silly. δικαιοσύνῃ, righteousness, is not in the correct grammatical form for that to be true.
