Salvation is not about REFORMATION, it is about TRANSFORMATION.
God did not send Jesus to reform, refine, renew, redo, or even recreate us...He came to make us a complete NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus. He came to do away with, obliterate our old nature and give us a NEW NATURE...HIMSELF.
One of the most dangerous deceptive deceptions that Christendom is deceived by, is people sitting under teaching that is laced with a mixture of LAW and GRACE and believing it is the gospel. The law can only administer death (2 Cor 3"6-7). On the other hand it is the Grace and Love of God that sets us free from the Law of sin and death and alive unto Christ.
This mixture of Law and Grace herald by religion administers death not life...therewith, is my denunciation of, and my premise that Jesus came to put an end to religion.
This Law/Grace Gospel deceptiveness is the reason that many in Christendom don't understand why their spiritual hunger is not satisfied...their failure to please God...and why the "peace that passes all understanding" escapes them.
