One Way to Righteousness


1 John 3:4) Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.


2 John 1:9) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.


1 John 3:9) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

If a person chooses to stay in presumptuous sin in any way, how can they ever abide in God? The scripture makes this point plain and simple. When someone tries to argue against these verses, they are deceiving themselves and trying to justify or make excuses for sin, but “the scripture cannot be broken”, This the Lord said himself and who would argue this final saying when it is the Lord who said it? Plain and simple, people can’t handle the truth so they manipulate it, turning it to suit them the way they want for convenience sake, but who can prosper when they manipulate God’s word or take out the parts they don’t want to hear? As it is written “Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?” People don’t want to hear what they don’t want to hear. People see what they want to see. People block out the verses of conviction that condemn the conscience because they are afraid to accept the truth, period!

The last thing people want to hear in today’s age is that we are called to flee from every sinful behavior in our lives, but it is the truth. This is not optional, nor is debatable because the scripture claims loud and clear that any sinful living is unacceptable. Name a verse in the entire bible that says, it is ok to keep living in sin because God still loves you, or anything of the such. People call the truth perfectionism, but the Lord said “Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin” and to the adulteress women, “go, and sin no more”. People twist what they can’t handle, manipulate what they can’t comprehend. This is the error. This is the mistake. “who sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him” is not written in vain, but is a grave warning, but many people make of implying their own wrongful standards, their own understanding, which is specifically what we are warned not to do throughout the bible. “Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” This is not written in vain, “turn not to the right hand nor to the left, remove they foot from evil”. Knowing the bible, the word of God is critical, but putting “the commandments of men”, which teach error and leniency are damnable doctrines meant to improvise or compromise the word’s power and meaning. Two ways, only two, to die in sin, or to break free from the bondage of it and abide in the doctrine of Christ.


1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Following Christ compels us ever closer to His heart and will for our lives yet if we say we have no sin we are self decieved and the truth is not in us. We are to submit to God and resist temptation and yet the only way we will ever be able to stand in the Father's presence is the imputed righteousness of Christ. Abide in the very Vine of God and allow His life to flow in and through you, you will find yourself shunning sin. But that does not mean we do not stumble or sin- grace and forgiveness for the repentant- salvation though Christ's shed blood and His ressurection power working in us is the way to Holiness.


This is my righteousness :) :
Rom 10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Rom 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Rom 3:25
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
Rom 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Rom 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Co 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Php 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

2Pe 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

Rom 1:17
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
