People placing confidence in their performance, not realizing that the law was designed to them them not to place confidence in their performance when it came to earning their righteousness before God through their performance. Otherwise, God would not have provided for a sacrificial system within the law program in the first place, he would not of needed it. Are you not glad to find out that your righteousness before God comes totally apart from your performance in the flesh in any way whatís so ever. Our deeds do not determine our destiny, our faith determines our destiny!

maybe this phantom other adam could explain
As we understand what God accomplished for us through his son and build upon that foundation the truths of who he has made us to be by placing us into his son, we begin to view ourselves as God views us and there is great security to be found in doing so. Attitude always precedes action. Worry never robs tomorrow of itís sorrow, it only saps today of itís joy. We all have worries and care, the only impact worry will ever have is on our health. When a believerís behavior is consistently inconsistent with what that believer professes to believe, the answer lies in a failure to fully appreciate one or more aspects of the foundational truths. Itís difficult for the human mind apart from letting divine viewpoint replace human viewpoint to lay hold of the magnitude of what the grace of God is all about and what that grace has accomplished on behalf of every signal person who has trust in what Jesus accomplished. Grace is that which the human race can not earn, does not deserve and will never merit.

Grace says, Iíll glorify you. We are identified at the point of our belief with Jesusí death just as if we were hanging there on the tree of crucifixion right along side Jesus. Did we pay for our sins? No. Jesus alone satisfied the sin issue. We are as fully identified with Jesusí burial as if we were placed right along side him in the tomb. We are also fully identified with Jesusí in his resurrection from among the dead that God sees those who have trusted the saviorhood of Jesus as already ascended with Jesus to the Father. Colossians 3:3, all the Father has in store for the son, he has in store for us.

I wonder that the ghost of Pastor Jack Glass might yet walk among us.

Then again, he was such a loud and shouty man that I think we would all have noticed him by now.

But this newnature woman seems to be cut of the same cloth.

Scary. (But funny)
