It is a marvel that God could look upon someone as being as righteous as Christ Himself. New Testament salvation causes Christ to be the believer's righteousness.
It is a marvel that we could be clothed in Christ as our justification before God. The Bible says that the one who trusts in Jesus Christ actually becomes the righteousness of God in Christ: ...[text shortened]... od forever.
So let's talk about a phrase I have coined - "Original Righteousness".

The idea of Original Righteousness is symbolically portrayed in what God did immediately after Adam and Eve fell into sin:
They were expecting to die. For God had warned them that in the day they ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil they would die. Instead of them dying physically immediately, they witnessed God kill an animal and cloth them ...[text shortened]... /b]
This window into God's plan of redemption is seen there in Genesis chapter three.

Last time I looked, this was a discussion forum, not a soapbox.

By the way, since we are on here kind of real time, want to have a chess game? We could finish it up probably within the hour.

Hence, your extended proclamations of faith are presumptuous of our patience.
I have to admit, however, that what you say, you put tolerably well. Not cogently, but poetically.

You have your style. I have mine.
You don't have to sit passively in your pew and say Amen. If you have a counter point make it. If I think it is interesting, I'll respond. If I don't someone else might.
Now if that's all you have to say to me, excuse me - I have quite a lot to stimulate responses from others by writing what is within me about my subject matter.
Originally posted by jaywillThe problem is that Jesus didn't say any of that. He said he is a man and just a prophet to return Jews to the GOD way. All what you said is concolusions and you cann't prove any of it from your Bible.

In the Bible the same principle that worked against us in Adam's disobedience works for us in Christ's obedience.
