First of all, what I have been writing in this blog for the past 1300 posts is what I claim comes from my Angels. There is only one way to interpret the Bible from cover to cover. There really isn't any other way to understand the Bible. I don't condemn ANYONE for his or her sins. If one reads the Bible carefully, one will find that every sin under the sun is committed in some form or another. I can't read the Bible without interpreting it the way I do. There is a study of the Bible that gives one who becomes a scholar of languages and understandings called hermeneutics. This is a method of looking for some kind of thematic approach to interpreting the Bible. Generally speaking, I won't say that ALL hermaneurics fail. However, when one believes that God will forgive ALL sins, in order to be forgiven then is to ask for forgiveness. Asking for forgiveness is the first step to salvation and then after that it is up to the saved to live lives exemplary of salvation as evidence that one is sincere in what one accepts as truth.
I don't want to make salvation too complicated, but in my world with my Angels, salvation has little if nothing to do with what we do. Salvation then becomes nebulous to define. Why? It is up to each believer to define what he or she believes salvation to be, but that often salvation is defined by each congregation or group of congregations that basically believe a similar theology. But I am saying that salvation is NOT defined by what we do or how we practice our religiosity, but that salvation is solely defined by what we do NOT do. I am not talking about not lusting, for example. I am not talking about not stealing. In fact, I am not talking about not committing any of the seven deadly sins. I would go so far to say that salvation isn't based on obedience to the Ten Commandments, but that there is ONLY ONE commandment from God with which we MUST obey. We very simply do NOT murder. But I define murder and purposely taking a Human Life. I have said that laws define murder differently. What the law can allow IS murder. Lawful murder is STILL murder in the eyes of God. What we cannot do is purposely take ANY Human Life for ANY reason. This is what we MUST NOT do.
What Jesus is referring to in regard to lust is that EVERYONE is guilty of lust. In fact, in some form or another EVERYONE is guilty of EVERY single sin known to humanity. But what sets apart the saved from the unsaved isn't belief. Because really, belief can be anything you want it to be. If your belief does NOT say that EVERY single Human Life is sacred and that for this reason only God can take a Human Life, then your belief only has meaning to those who believe as you do. The ONLY way to become condemned by God is to purposely take a Human Life. Otherwise, a person can believe anything he or she wants to believe and in some aspect of faith be correct in the thinking of some. But even an Atheist can believe that EVERY Human Life is sacred, but maybe not to God. There is NEVER a reason to murder a person regardless of any belief that says otherwise. Murder then is the ONLY way to be condemned and forever losing one's salvation. I am Brother Ralphie writing for my Angels from The Angels of Life Institute. Peace.
