Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Sin: Our Role And God’s

Posted by Job on July 7, 2010

I don’t have some elegant comprehensive fully formed doctrine on God’s preserving grace versus man’s responsibility. I just know that when we don’t sin then God deserves the credit and when we do sin we deserve the blame. Therefore, we cannot become prideful when we evade sin or even do good works of righteousness, because we are only capable of doing such things by God’s grace and power. However, when we do sin, we cannot blame God, for God is not responsible for sin. He did not create sin or evil. He does not even tempt men to do sin or evil. So, all of our evil deeds are our own responsibility, and we are without excuse. So, we cannot ignore our sins or transfer blame or think that our righteous deeds can outweigh or overcome our evil deeds in some scale or balance. If this were the case, we could boast of our own righteousness, earn our own salvation, and we would be glorified, not God. Therefore the person must mourn over and regret his sin and place all trust in the fact that Jesus Christ died for his sins and was resurrected for his justification. That’s what the Bible says, and that is good enough for me.

    How sad that we cannot be pride of our own accomplishments or “works of righteousness”, yet if anything goes wrong, we are doomed to the fires of hell. Sounds like a miserable existence to me.

    Then does this mean the new agers are right and we are co-creators of this reality?
