The Perfecting Work
(of the true-gospel when applied)
● Jesus said,  
  "Either make the tree good and his or her fruit good, or else make the tree bad and his or her fruit bad; for the tree is known by his or her fruit." (Matthew 12:33)
● Furthermore, the apostle Paul said of new converts to (in) Christ, referring to other     people's sin-fruit:
  "And such but you are washed..... sanctified......justified (note the order) in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God".

How such two scriptures (and 200 more) knock forever the popular 'carnal Christian' 'lukewarm' convenience notion of a part salvation: 1/2 of a person saved and 1/2 still in (or in and out of) sin! some say, like a duel personality.

What an indictment against such filthy gospel garbage is 'the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation to all who believe'. What an indictment against those who disbelieve, and teach others also; 'who don't enter in themselves, and hinder those who would'; 'those with a form of godliness but deny the (saving) power thereof'.

Again, how the apostle Paul puts 'paid' to this devil's doctrine of partial pie-in-the-sky salvation, when he applies this sort of  double-mindedness to his previous unchristian unconverted days when awakened to sin by the requirement of God's law unwritten in his heart, that is, prior to being 'a new creature in Christ Jesus' (2 Corinthians 5:7, Romans 8:1) which includes his unconverted flesh being 'crucified with Christ' up to the light he had. (Romans 6:6)


Of course Paul was the first to declare that a continuing perfecting/sanctifying work was always going on in his life, not in respect of willful/known disobedience (sin), but in respect of unrevealed undesirable elements of his nature, revealed by experience and 'the washing of water by the Word'.  Of course his acceptance of such new light proved his converted, saved, born-again state.

Also Paul regarded the total fulfillment of his life's ministry as perfection, which he intended to pursue to the end and achieve. (Philippians 3:11-14). Even Jesus had need of being thus perfected. (Hebrews 2:10, 5:9, Luke 13:32).
● When will 'blind leaders of the blind' have the courage (moral character) to define what sin is and what it is not - to divide forever between sinful willful/known disobedience (calling for reformation or damnation), and unwitting error which is revealed by the Word of God and the tests of life as we go along (calling for correction, but 'no condemnation')?

● When will professing teachers of righteousness cease to pervert the right way of the Lord as they persist in confusing moral accountability and amoral learning experience?

When will they cease to pump and plunder the heart and brain of the unfaithful with the notion that no one is or can be perfect; without dividing between the moral perfection of converted obedience and the moral (immoral) imperfection of disobedience in unconverted 'carnal Christians'?

When will they teach the simple converted life of faith-obedience, that is, accepting/surrendering to the offered righteous state in Christ (repentance and faith in action) up to the light received?

● When will they teach that we are either 'obedient children, not fashioning ourselves according to our former unknown lusts, 'or' the children of disobedience.....unthankful, unholy', 'to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever' 'except they repent, and do works meet for repentance'? (Matthew 3:8, Acts 26:20, Revelation 2:5).

● When will they teach, 'either make the tree good and his or her fruits good (i.e. of repentant, faith-obedient, new-spirit fruit); or make the tree bad and his or her fruit bad (i.e. of unrepentant, unbelieving, disobedient, old-flesh works/fruit)?


One thing is for sure: when they do, such preachers will 'both save themselves and them who are willing to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church'. (1 Timothy 4:16, Revelation 2:7).

Sunday morning will no longer necessarily be an occasion for slavish, repetitive, unconverted asking for forgiveness, as under the O.T. law-dispensation, akin to weekly confessional and indulgences.. Instead it will be a time of reflection, enlightenment, consecration, thankfulness and praise! (or if need be, repentance and faith). After over 40 years of religious darkness of my own making, I can truly say by the grace of God that this is now my blessed experience. Truly, 'the truth, as it is in Christ Jesus, has made and keeps me free!' as I believe (accept) it rather than gospel lies.
