Well /christian/ is he right?

>behave

If by behave he means keep all the commandments, develop all virtues and live according to Christ's example then he can do what he wants which would be to do what is true and good.

>>521743

He's being oxymoronic. How can you "behave" and also "do whatever you want"? I just don't get it


63e9a7 No.521847

>>521743

He's got the wrong order, missing something, and gets the last part wrong which contradicts the entire statement. He errs thrice, nice!

>>521825

I assume it was a typo or autocorrect and he meant 'believe' not 'behave' otherwise it makes no sense.

>>521743

If you are in some mainstream protestant church then yes. If you actually try to be Christian then he is so incorrect it hurts.

>>521825

Perhaps doing whatever he wants doesn't violate the state of "behaving." Probably a type, though, as >>521849 said.

>accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and the Son of God

>follow His example as best as you are able to

>pray for forgiveness if you mess up

>follow the ten commandments

Everything else is people arguing over things that you'd need to be a theologian to understand and/or aren't necessary for your salvation.

>>521825

Maybe he doesn't want to sin?

is behave equal to dedicating your life to christ. If you truly believe in christ, and follow his commandments, you should love god about all, with all your soul, and your being.

Can you truly love god, if you don't want to live a life doing what he wants? You would want god's will to be your motivation, you should help others, learn the bible.

Other than that, do whatever else in your free time, you are here not to suffer, that's not the objective. But remember to spare some time everyday for god, through action and though, and reading as well. Don't reject oportunities to worship god, and help others, and don't live for yourself, it wont lead to anyones development, which if you love others as you love yourself, you should.

Remember the story about the wifes that were, and werent prepared for her husbands arrival? It's pretty relevant in this case.

>>522527

You forgot the Sacraments of Baptism,Confession and Eucharist which the Lord EXPLICITLY SPEAKS ABOUT

You are leading people away from Christ by leaving out his active body on earth which he offers to all Christians to accept or reject

>>521748

My first thoughts too.

I mean yeah as long as you follow God's law you are allowed complete free will to like what you like and do what you want.


b4984a No.535910

>>521743

Tou don't have to behave do he's wrong. You only have to accept Christ.


217c24 No.536228

There seems to be a lot of confusion. Let me clear this up.

>"So basically I just have to behave"

Keep his commandments/ law whatever you want to call the "Legal" part of the bible.

>"accept Christ"

Accept that he is the fulfillment of the prophesy sent to die for our sins. So basically acknowledging he is Lord. :)

>"And basically do whatever else I want"

Self explanatory. Hobbies/ Job/ Kids/ anything that doesn't conflict. But as we all know getting right with christ is something we must always be focusing on.

Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

So basically there is nothing wrong with what he said. Now as far as how that is to be interpreted depends on the Christian and their beliefs. Which is why we are all here, to fellowship and learn from one another.

Let's take for example some passages with some hot topics.

Speaking in tounges:

1 Corinthians 13 (please read the whole thing. It speaks volumes about love. It's something the lord is trying to work in my life right now.) : Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Love the sinner not the sin(Doesn't mean participate in the sin nor does it mean don't be upset by the sinner): 1 John 4: 7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Thanks for the reads!
