Today, points are shared to clarify how all sin can be the same.  Also, there is more on salvation before the time of Christ incarnate upon the earth.  A “Yahoo! Answers” fighter using the ID “Lady Bunt” (Level 1 with 237 points, a member since March 18, 2014) posted the following:

 

Is it true that Protestants think that all sins are equal in the eyes of the Lord? 

if they do, this is the stupidest belief I’ve ever heard in my life

This is against reason and logic. And this is against God, given that God is logos, then the pure reason

So according to Protestant a liar is as sinful as a serial killer who murdered 20 people. This is absurd

Not even the state reasons in such a ridiculous way. In fact for the law a fraud is not punished in the same way as a serial killer

or, dear Protestants, should you advise the state to give all criminals the same penalty?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Salvation Before Christ? (06/24/2014)—(5.)  For many doctrines and teachings recorded within the Scriptures the labels and familiar language we now use to speak of salvation do not appear.  Yet, there are multiple demonstrations and events that carry the same essence (we say, spirit), meanings, precepts, principles and values.  Included have been comfort, covenants, deliverance, prophetic demonstrations, healing, messages, miracles, proclamations, signs, sacred songs, and victory in battle.  From before Creation, at its beginning, and for all mankind that would ever exist, there has been only one divine mechanism for atonement and propitiation of sin:  a presentation of divinity through blood offered in sacrifice from GOD appearing incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ.  All upon the earth have been challenged to acknowledge salvation as faith fostered by the promises of GOD.  All have been directed to continue specific observances and practices (we say, ceremonies, rituals, sacraments) that crystallize the expectation (hope) for a visible divine appearing (we say, revelation).  Both the righteous and the unrighteous have been preserved by GOD through operations of death, and are to be returned to their bodies to appear before GOD.  Even those from the earliest days of the earth can be taken up as saved to meet Christ in the air at his second coming (some say, Advent, the Rapture, the first resurrection).  Others will be raised from the dead for judgment (we say, the second resurrection) as the wicked who must appear in an open tribunal where Christ will preside as judge.  Atonement (applying the blood of Jesus to cover sin) and sealing to identify those belonging to Christ will have been completed before the first resurrection.  Yet, those lifted then will participate in judgment to determine their eternal access to divinity, privileges and status (we say, rewards).  When Christ comes to harvest the earth of those who have been purchased through the blood of atonement and redemption, only those who correctly responded to the many provisions for salvation will be granted life from the dead as the first resurrection.  See again Acts 13:  38-39, Romans 6:  16-18, 1st Corinthians 3:  11-15, 1st Thessalonians 4:  14-16, Hebrews 11:  1-40 and 1st Peter 4:  1-7, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?  But ye have despised the poor.  Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:  But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.  For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill.  Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.  (James 2:  5-11, KJV)

“Lady Bunt”, here are a few points that have been useful for many Christian believers that might help strengthen your understanding:

(1.)  GOD is a spirit who has put forth material beings and living creatures, the spheres wherein they may abide and endure, and the various conditions for them to gain sacred knowledge as well as to participate in intimate relationship with divinity.

(2.)  Awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures may be dominated by sin.  Sin is no material or spirit thing that has been created by GOD, has no concrete form or measurable dimension, yet, has direction, effect, and presence.  Sin is an artifact of discrete being, independence, and separation from GOD; and sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, of the divine Law Giver, and of the universe manifest through divine law.  Sin can not control or influence divine will.

(3.) Sin does not contain or have “existence” (an aspect of divinity).  Thus, sin can not be suddenly and completely destroyed, eliminated and removed using such finite human tools as intellect, logic, mathematics, philosophy, reason, and science.  To detect, correctly recognize, and resist sin, men and angels must receive inseparable, invisible aspects from the life essence of GOD that establish the power of divine will.  Multiple divine operations are occurring that limit sin, and that are necessary to avoid cosmic upheaval for all divine order.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  For example, (4.)  In order to correctly communicate about the things of life or death from GOD, believers all must learn and use a shared language of spiritual experience that is distinct from what we have through carnal, material, and social activity.  So to speak, we must master talking about bananas to describe watermelons.  Putting aside their size and weight differences, the two are exactly the same:  Both are fruit.  Both are green (at least for a while).  Both have the same function of protecting and distributing seed.  Also, both are pretty tasty.  Sin first may become known and spoken of on the basis of such features as attitudes, behavior, and conduct; however, sin is a profound aspect of spirit substance, existence, and interaction.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.

And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.  Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.  But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.  (Job 11:  18-20, KJV)
