Subject: So what, we're all imperfect!
In reply to: jim 's message, "many people here to condemn..." on 00:50:17 10/03/04 Sun

What right do people have to condemn?
Condemn? Pointing out facts is condemning?
Let's just say that UBF is being condemned by their own actions.

All of us have fallen short of the glory of God. Is this not true??? Let the man without sin cast the first stone.

Oh yes, all of us have fallen. And if we use this as an excuse for further sinning, then we annul the grace of God.
If we say "So what if we sin?" then we're kicking the precious blood of Jesus with our feet!
The Lord Jesus demanded "Therefore shalt thou be as perfect as Thine Heavenly Father is perfect" (Mt5:48) - now please, don't say that this doesn't apply to UBF leaders.
These people use "imperfection" as an excuse, denying and rejecting the idea that Christ came to SAVE them from sin rather then letting them dwell in it!
And by the way, let me say one more thing: sin is not the same as merely imperfection. Sin is sin. Sin is dirty. Sin is an abomination to God. The Lord dislikes sin. The Lord judges sin. The Lord feels hurt by sin.
But you say "So what of sin? We all have it!"
Let me tell you: if this was true, then there is no purpose of existence for UBF, because what can it bring to people if it can't tell people how to get saved from sin, but merely can give them excuses for dwelling in sin?

If UBF excuses sin then UBF is preaching a false Gospel, and the Apostle Paul said that those who preach a false Gospel, let them be condemned and suffer eternal perdition!

There is NO excuse for sin, and much less an excuse for willfully sinning!

People who put "God Bless" at the end of their messages claim to be true christians? A follower of Christ is known by their fruits.
And I will not say "God bless" towards UBF leaders, as this was clearly forbidden by the Apostle John.
