Originally posted by sonshipThis kind of makes me wonder what the point is. God, apparently, wants millions of rows of identical cabbages all pre-wired to kiss his ass for eternity. Boring!
In Christ I am eternally justified by God. My history is Jesus. My legacy is Jesus. My record is Jesus. Christ is my righteousness.

God rejects ME! But it is a glorious revelation. Because if I did NOT have Christ, then if God rejected ME I would have NOTHING left over.
Because I have Christ and am in Christ, when God rejects me I have something wonderful [b]leftover. I have everything as a leftover - everything longed for by God. I have Christ as my LEFTOVER.

Originally posted by sonshipAgain, dude. Such amazing greed. You don't seem to be interested in god at all. You don't seem to believe in god simply because you "feel" something.

When you finally meet god you'll hold up your hand and say "I've been good, now gimme stuff!"
What do you offer that's as good or better ?
Nothing much I bet.

Sonship, I've read some of your text here and can only disagree with your thinking.
If God only wants Christ in you, but rejects you for your sinfulness, what was the point of Jesus and the cross?
Why would Jesus go into the homes of the sinful, if they were so rejected in their sinfulness?
