(04/27/2016) Products of The Cross?

Points are shared on evolution, salvation, and believers as products of the cross.  The attitudes, behavior and thoughts within mankind that result from the operations of sin are not justified by the blood of the cross.  Only rebirth, permanent change, sanctification, and walking in the Spirit are atoned for and justified.  Thereby the disciples and followers of Christ are made to exist as “a new creation.”  The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “R&S007” (Level 6 with 18,970 points, a member since June 28, 2010) posted the following:


Are religious people the most fit products of evolution ?


THE GOLDEN ARROW:  O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:  Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.  (1st Timothy 6:  20-21, KJV)


THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  The Cross and Critical Thinking? (04/13/2016); The Cross was Premature? (04/07/2016); Not Through Human Will? (01/29/2016); The Scale of Salvation? (12/13/2015); Growing Up Again? (12/09/2015); By More Than Believing (12/04/2015); An Eternal Plan and Process (07/05/2015); Believers and Evolution? (02/02/2015)


R&S007”, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood, correction, and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now, because sin can not be eliminated, removed or even resisted relying upon finite human tools of intellect, logic, mathematics, philosophy, science, and technology.  Mature Christian believers count themselves to be products of the cross (i.e., a spiritual process entailing, atonement, life, death, rebirth, judgment, forgiveness, mercy, resurrection, and eternity), rather than outcomes of “evolution”, a set of human ideas to describe the mechanical and natural processes recognizable as the order established by divinity through Creation.  By Jesus Christ appearing as divinity incarnate (we say, in flesh and bone), specific tools are provided for the transformation of created beings and living creatures to serve Deity as immortal, incorruptible life companions.  In addition to sacred knowledge, there must be sanctification, sacred practice, and the in-filling of believers with inseparable aspects of the spirit content that are the makeup of divinity (e.g., faith, holiness, joy, love, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin).  Consider again how these ideas are shared using language from the Bible:

(1.)  John 3:  6-7, King James Version (KJV):  6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

(2.)  John 4:  23-24, KJV:  23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:  for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  24 God is a Spirit:  and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

(3.)  Romans 8:  28-31, KJV:  28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called:  and whom he called, them he also justified:  and whom he justified, them he also glorified.  31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually taken in.  (For example, (4.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after 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, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
