And yet, that seems to be the "gospel" that some preach. If Jesus doesn't deliver us from sin and sinning, but just from the final consequences of it, what kind of gospel is that?
Is satan stronger than God?
But that seems to be the message that I hear. Are we doomed to endless cycles of sin and repent with no hope for deliverance until death?
If that is the case, then kill me now! I came to Jesus to be delivered from all that junk! It was the hope of a life free from sin that brought me to him in the first place. Now you want to tell me that that was a false hope? That the promises of scripture are bogus?
Sorry. Not buying it! I'll stand on the promise of deliverance.
