christine's bible study

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. Isa 40:8

obedience in the new testament

obedience in the new testament
I believe that both testaments of the Holy Scriptures are in complete harmony with each other and teach the same message: that righteousness or right- standing (salvation or justification) before God is by faith not works. I believe that right behavior or actions (sanctification or obedience to God) is an outcome of true faith, and this admonition to behave rightly is preached without alteration from Genesis through Revelation. I believe that there is one God, one gospel, one faith, one message inspired by the one Spirit, and one people of God from Genesis through Revelation. I believe that God expressed as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is eternal and unchanging, the same yesterday, today, and forever. I believe that His Word is true from Genesis to Revelation, and that none of it has passed away nor will pass away until all is fulfilled.

As such, I believe that Jesus and the apostles are not in opposition to Moses and the Prophets, but that Jesus and the apostles preach right behavior or sanctification as an evidence of saving faith, lest any man should be deceived.
