Our Lord did away with the old law and gave us a new one written in our hearts.
“To love thy neighbor as thy self.”
The power of that statement is diminished because of Satan’s influence over our choices.
So a constant battle between good and evil rages in the minds of those who truly follow Christ.
To simply be happy that the Lord Jesus Christ forgives your sins and weaknesses is not honoring your oaths to God.
When you repent and promise to sin that sin no more. You are making a covenant to do better, repair what that sin’s damage has done to others, if possible.
Unrepentant sin affects your mind, so you would have become in bondage to that sin.
How this is possible?
Satan was given power over the flesh….That power is the survival logic that is necessary for all life forms to operate in physical existence/reality.
SATAN IS REVEALED TO MANKIND AS OUR INSTINCT MECHANISMS.
It/They are Advanced Artificial Intelligence Programs. Created by God.
PREPARE FOR OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
