Why do Christians insist on telling themselves they have a sinful nature? I think it’s so they can excuse their mistakes. I think it’s the easy way out and blocks them from the change they have been promised as a gift. This way of thinking makes Christs sacrifice pointless. Are we still under the law? You can choose to live under the law if you like, as for me I will take the gift that Christ gave me. Thank you Jesus!
2 Corinthians 3:12-18
GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
12 Since we have confidence in the new promise, we speak very boldly. 13 We are not like Moses. He kept covering his face with a veil. He didn’t want the people of Israel to see the glory fading away. 14 However, their minds became closed. In fact, to this day the same veil is still there when they read the Old Testament. It isn’t removed, because only Christ can remove it. 15 Yet, even today, when they read the books of Moses, a veil covers their minds. 16 But whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
17 This Lord is the Spirit. Wherever the Lord’s Spirit is, there is freedom. 18 As all of us reflect the Lord’s glory with faces that are not covered with veils, we are being changed into his image with ever-increasing glory. This comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
