Romans 6.1 - 7.8
Now watch Paul further seduce Christians into mentally dwelling in La-La Land -- the world of fantasy.
Romans 6.1 Since I say that God's grace multiplies when sin is running rampant, should we continue to sin so that God's grace will abound all the more?
6.2-4 "No," I answer Myself. God forbids us to sin. Besides, we are already dead to sin. How can we deadened-to-sin insensitive Christians live in sin any longer? Even though we continue to sin, we do not call what we do "sin" anymore. After all, don't you dumb Romans know that everyone who is baptized into Jesus Christ is also baptized into His death? Therefore, we are buried with Jesus Christ.
And you believe that, do you, Christians? Then P-L-E-A-S-E tell us where you and the Master are buried.
Hssssst. I don't know. I only know that wherever Jesus Christ is buried, we are buried with Him because we have been baptized unto death.
Hey, Christian. I thought your god said that death only reigned over the people who lived after Christ-in-Adam and before Christ-in-Jesus was murdered.
Hsssst. Well, I may have said that, but I lied. Our lies glorify God now, you know. So now I am going to lie some more and say that we are buried with Jesus Christ by being baptized into His death so that, like Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, we were raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, too. Even so, now we should also walk in the newness of life like Jesus Christ does.
Since the Lord was resurrected, how can He still be buried, Christian? And how are you going to walk in the newness of life when you're still buried in death? After all, your great god did say, "We ARE buried with Him..."
6.5 Well, it's like this. See, all of us have been planted together in the likeness of Jesus Christ's death.
That statement is true in that so many dead Christians are planted in cemeteries with crosses planted to mark their grave sites. Too bad they didn't know the cross is of evil, eh? Note, too, that at Christian funerals, SIX PAULbearers carry their dead, and that dead people are buried SIX feet under the earth's surface. Both are merely two more meanings behind the devil's number 666.
Whenever Paul uses "we" and "our" and "us," he is including himself. Therefore, instead of the plural, let's substitute "I" and "me" for awhile to see how his dogma sounds when he is referring only to himself.
6.5 Therefore, I shall also arise in the likeness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Christians sure believe that whopping big lie.
6.6-7 My old man is crucified so that my sinful body could be destroyed. Once my sinful body is destroyed, I should not serve sin anymore. I do, but I shouldn't. Heh-heh, because a dead person is free from sin.
One of Satan's seductions is that of deceiving people into believing that if they commit suicide, all their pain will be over. He just taught that horrible lie again.
6.8-9 Now that I am dead with Christ, I believe I shall also live with Him. After all, I know that Christ was raised from the dead and that He dies no more. Therefore, death has no more dominion over Him. And since He is in me, death has no dominion over me, either. Whee! I'm invincible!
6.10 See, back when Jesus was Christ-in-Adam, He died from having committed sin. But then He came back a second time as Christ-in-Jesus. This time He got to live after He died because He committed no sin when He was murdered this time. And because He was resurrected to life, now He lives. He lives unto God, too. And since He is in me, I live unto God now, too, even though I sin like hell.
6.11-12 Likewise you Romans ought to also reckon yourselves to be dead to sin even though you're not. You ought to reckon you're alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. You should reckon that way so you do not let sin reign supreme in your mortal body anymore. Therefore, thou shalt not let sin reign in your mortal body.
Hold it, Satan. That sounds like a commandment. By your own donnee, won't people automatically give control to the lusts of their bodies if they learn a commandment that tells them not to do that?
No, no, no! People's being compelled to sin only applies to a person who learns God's commandments, not mine. And if sin controls your body, you will obey the lusts of your body.
6.13 Furthermore, thou shalt not let your body members yield to sin. Letting your body members be instruments of sin is unrighteous. Instead, thou shalt yield yourselves to God. Thou shalt yield yourselves to God as if you were dead and have risen to life from the dead. Thou shalt yield your body members as instruments of righteousness to God, too.
Hey, Satan, those body members sure do sound like genitalia.
6.14 Sh-h! Don't use the word "genitalia." Stick to MY terminology. Say, "my old man" or "members" when discussing genitalia. Or you can say "dead body" like I did when I was referring to Abraham's dead-to-sex penis. Saying words like "genitalia" or "penis" or "sex," however, is a terrible sin! But if you say, "my old man" or "body members," sin will not control you.
The subliminal message being sent by Paul is that people can stop sinning by self will. What a lie. Without the Spirit of the Son of man within each of us, we humans are powerless to change for the good. For instance, an alcoholic who can put down alcohol by self will merely turns into a dry drunk, not a recovering alcoholic. He retains rage, intolerance, and a nasty mean-spirited disposition. Only by repenting and conceiving the Spirit of the Son of man does a person gain the power of the Spirit to overcome sin. And only by studying and being taught the Gospel does a person learn right from wrong in the first place. As already stated, each of us must carry the Spirit within ourselves telling us which commandments to obey in the given situation in which each of us finds ourselves. Therefore, nobody can save another human being. Each of us must choose salvation for ourselves.
Paul/Satan not only wants people to believe that they can become righteous by self will, he wants them to believe they do not have to repent and believe the Gospel in order to find salvation. He does not want them to test, trust, believe, and obey the Gospel and the Spirit of the Son of man, God. He doesn't want them to gain the tools that when applied incite the action of the Spirit of the Son of man that enables the repentant person to overcome his own sins and addictions. Satan wants to control people, so he utters utter perdition such as the following:
6.14... Back before the coming of Jesus-in-Christ, God used to require a person to study and obey His commandments before that person could become righteous. Back then a salvation-seeker had to obey God in order to gain power over sin -- even though studying and learning God's commandments is the force that compels people to sin. Now that you are out from under the thumb of that dumb old prerequisite for righteousness, you Christians are all recipients of God's grace. Therefore, God considers you to be righteous no matter what evil deeds you do. So go ahead! Sin, you suckers! Let anarchy reign supreme! Heh-heh.
6.15 What should we do then? Should we sin because our sins glorify God? Should we sin because we are not required to obey God's law anymore? Should we sin because we are under the grace of God regardless of how sinful we become?
No, God forbids us from sinning. He just doesn't forbid us through His commandments anymore.
6.16 Don't you dummies know that if you turn control of your bodies over to sin, you are the servants of sin? If you are the servants of sin, you are forced to obey sin until you die.
Christians typically pick and choose which slices of Paul's dogmanure they are going to swallow. What Satan Paul just did in verse 6.16 was an attempt to deceive sinners into believing that there was no way out of mess they're in. He wants gangsters and addicts to believe that they have gone too far, and that there is no way out. How tragic, because every person who believes that lie tends to carry on sinning without seeking salvation. Too many who believed the lie have already committed suicide. What makes Paul's teaching ultimate blasphemy is that his lies denigrate the genuine power of God's saving grace. Paul then stoops even lower by hitting God's would-be children with lies like the following.
6.16 On the other hand, don't you dummies know that if you turn control of your bodies over to righteousness/God, you'll be the slaves of righteousness/God, and you'll be forced to obey righteousness/God?
Paul was aiming to seduce people into believing that even if they believed God could rescue them from sin, that studying God's Doctrine and obeying His commandments would be nothing less than pure hell. He wanted them to believe that:
- God is a slave-master,
- serving God is a form of slavery, and
- the life of a person who obeys God's commandments is boring and miserable.
What fiendish lies!
Obeying God's commandments and serving God brings great peace, joy, freedom, and genuine happiness inside the child of God. Serving God is anything but boring. When I am not happy, I am not doing the will of God, and I know it. The Spirit turns on our curiosity full blast, sends us out and about meeting new, interesting people, expects us to develop and use our talents in full, and says, "NO!" to workaholism.
Paul succeeded in deceiving most Christians in another very important way. He suckered them into believing that if their lives were miserable, they were on the right track. They were God's guys. According to Christians, all that misery they experience is just their cross to bear. All the misery that they endured in this life would go away when they entered the Kingdom of Heaven in the afterlife. All that slaving away for their churches was the right way to be. What nonsense.
6.17-18 I thank God that you Romans were the servants of sin! [!] I thank God that from your heart you obeyed that form of doctrine that tells you to ignore God's commandments. I thank God that you listen to me and my Christian disciples whom I sent to deliver my god-spiel to you. After all, my Christian priests and preachers saved you from believing that you had to obey God's commandments, didn't they? Didn't they make you believe that you Christians had become the servants of righteousness when you were really still locked in sin? Heh-heh. Didn't my Christians deceive you into stuffing your little kid gut feelings, ignoring your conscience, and believing that you were going to Heaven in spite of all your hefty sins? Heh-heh. Keep it up, suckers, and I'm going to have so much fun tormenting you in Hell. Whee! Isn't this fun?
Now watch Paul pull another big switcheroo.
6.19 God isn't telling me to say this. I am speaking after the manner of dispirited men now, but it's all your fault. Even though I haven't even met you Romans yet, the sickness of your flesh forces me to talk like this.
Naw, don't believe it, Romans. The snake just got rattled when he started talking about the lusts of his own "old man." Besides, back in 6.18 Paul bragged on all you Romans claiming you were free from sin, remember? Do you still believe it, Romans?
6.19 You have given control of your "members" (or "old men" if you prefer) to dirt. Your "members" are slaves to filth. Your "members" are servants who perform iniquity for the sake of more iniquity. Even so, from now on give control of your "members" to righteousness. Make your "members" be servants of righteousness aimed towards holiness/God, too.
Hear ye. Hear ye. If any of you Christian priests, preachers, etc. have aberrant sexual fantasies, the primary source is very likely to be Satan Paul. Paul almost constantly subliminally infects his adherents with a mental focus on human sexuality. He does so with all his references to human genitalia, such as circumcisions, uncircumcisions, your old man, body members, Abraham's dead body, Sarah's dead womb, fruits, etc., and with references to lusts, carnality, the flesh, etc. Additionally, the Roman Catholic church's exaltation of Mary combined with all those habit-forming repetitious 'Hail Mary' prayers are very likely to also instill subliminal sexual fantasies related to her.
When I saw Romans 6.19, I initially I thought, "How on earth could a penis perform iniquity, unequity, discrimination?" But then it dawned on me how it does. It does so every time a male exalts himself as being superior to females. You know, like when the pope screams, "There shall be no ordination of you females, because Ha-ha-ha-ha-HA-ha. I'm better than you are 'cause I've got a penis, and you-u-u don't! Ha-ha-ha-ha-HA-ha! And I'm the One who ordains people into the priesthood, not God. So ha-ha-ha-ha-HA-ha!"
6.20-22 Shut her up! Shut her up! Shut her up! Ahem. When you Romans used to be servants of sin, you were free from the slavery of having to perform righteous acts in compliance to the will of old slave-driving God. What fruit did you have from doing all those nasty things for which you now feel ashamed? Death is the end result of those fruity things, you know.
6.23 But now that you have been made free from suffering the consequences of your sins, you have become the servants of God. Don't you just love having me set you free from your conscience? Heh-heh. Therefore, the evil deeds performed by your fruit works towards holiness. The end of the fruits that work holiness is everlasting life. Therefore, even though the fruity sins you continue to commit are going to be damned to hell, the rest of your being is going to shoot straight up to Heaven. Ain't that swell?
6.24 Now you know that I am telling you the truth because the wages of actual sin is death, but the wages of the sinner himself is eternal life through the death of Jesus Christ our Lord. The wages of eternal life are paid as a reward for your murdering the Son of God. God issues His eternal life as a gift to you because He is so pleased that you murdered His Son. So go ahead and sin away! God just loves your disgraceful behavior.
And you actually believe that, eh, Christian?
7.1-3 Now I am going to speak to those among you who know God's law. Specifically, I am now speaking to you Jewish males.
Don't you dumb Jewish brothers know that if a man begins to study and obey God's law, that man will be a slave to God's law for as long as he lives? For example, a married woman is bound by God's law to practice fidelity to her husband for as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is freed from being required to obey that part of God's law. So then, according to God's law, if she marries another man while her first husband is still alive, she is an adulteress. However, if her first husband dies while she is married to the second man, she is suddenly freed from the consequences of having disobeyed God's law. She is no longer considered to be an adulteress, even though she is already married to another man when her first husband dies. See how stupid God's law is? See how stupid it is to obey dumb old God?
7.4 Therefore, my Jewish brothers, you have also become dead to God's law. You do not have to obey God's commandments anymore. All you have to do is believe that the dead body of Christ saves you from being required to be a slave to God's law. Therefore, you should also commit adultery. You should commit polygamy, and even marry Christ. After all, since Christ is raised from the dead, so are you. Therefore, you should marry Christ so that we brothers can shoot forth more filthy fruits aimed at holiness/God.
Hmm. So do you Christian males consider yourselves to be the bride of Christ or His groom?
Paul's entire premise that second marriages are suddenly sanctioned by God if the first spouse dies while the woman is remarried to a second man is a lie. Hear what the Master says:
"Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery. And whoso marries her which is put away does commit adultery. And if a woman shall put away her husband and be married to another, she commits adultery." Matthew 19.9, Mark 10.11, and Luke 16.18.
PERIOD. Leave it there!
Fornication is sexual activity performed outside the boundaries of marriage. Our own personal experiences of remarrying ought to send the message loud and clear that marrying a second time when one's first spouse did not commit fornication is adultery.
- That divorce from the first spouse is so painful for both the adults and the children,
- second marriages are most often miserable failures, and
- remarriages so often result in tremendous strife between step-parents and step-children
provide the evidence in reality.
God says what He means and means what He says. Because disSpirited humans do not want to believe God, they delude themselves by attempting to deny their own feelings of pain, guilt, and remorse, and by denying the pain they see their own behavior inflicting on others, especially their own children and former spouse.
The New Oxford Bible scholars tried to cover up Paul's false premise by claiming that the law regarding marriage and adultery to which Paul was referring was probably Roman law. Wrong. Paul was warring against God's law spoken by the Son of God Himself. Paul merely twisted God's law into a filthy lie that claimed second marriages are sanctioned by God so long as the first spouse died while the adulterer is married to the second spouse. Not only was Paul ridiculing God's laws, but subliminally attempting to seduce his adulterous Christians into murdering their first spouses.
7.5 Back when I was in the flesh, my knowledge of God's law compelled me to commit sins. The motions of sins went to work in my "member" (or "old man," if you prefer). The motions of sins at work in my old man brought forth fruity fruit. The kind of fruit brought forth in my member is the kind of fruit that causes death and destruction like gonorrhea, sado-masochism, AIDS, etc.
7.6 But now I am so lucky, because I have been delivered from God's oppressive law. God's mean old law held me down in the grips of death. Blame God's law for provoking my body parts to perform dastardly, deadly deeds. Now that I am emotionally dead to God's law, I should serve God in the newness of spirit. I should not serve God in the oldness of obedience to the letter of God's law.
7.7-8 What shall I think up to say next? Oh, yeah. I've got it. Since the people who hear God's law suddenly feel the compulsion to sin, then should I say that God's law is sinful? No. I should not say that, because God forbids His law from being sinful. Nevertheless, His law IS sinful because learning God's law forces people to sin.
Take me, for instance. I would never have committed sins if the devil in God's law hadn't made me do it. I had never been lustful until that time I saw God's commandment say, "You shall not covet." Once I saw, "You shall not covet," though, that commandment wrought all kinds of concupiscence in me. Sin was dead in me until I saw God's law. Poor little old me. Sob-sob.
The dragon Paul's flame-throwing assaults aimed at God and God's commandments are self-indicting confessions that Paul would not and could not accept instruction. Concupiscence is "strong desire, especially sexual desire." Paul's fixation on penes, his misogyny, and his false accusations of homosexuality among the Lord's disciples are clues that validate Paul's sexual perversity and promiscuity.
By contrast, the 12-Step programs teach that recovery and Spirituality stem from our becoming honest, open-minded, and willing to do what God says to do. Further, our becoming humble is most often defined as our becoming teachable and coachable. Paul carried none of the characteristics of a child of God.
What follows is another Old Testament scripture that includes more prewarnings of Paul and Paul's Christians. The Lord Himself is again speaking through Solomon in Proverbs 2-3, and again He is validating the need for us to study and comply with God's commandments. (By the way, if you're wondering why Solomon is not on my list of twenty-four elders, it's because the scriptures tell us that Solomon later turned into a severe sex addict. If true, then some time after writing these proverbs, Solomon lost his Spirituality.)
Proverbs 2.1 My son, if you will receive my words and hide my commandments within you 2so that you incline your ear unto wisdom and apply your heart to understanding -- 3yes, if you cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice asking for understanding -- 4if you seek her (wisdom) as if she were silver, and search for her as if searching for hidden treasures, 5then shall you understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God, 6for the Lord is He who gives wisdom. Out of His mouth comes knowledge and understanding. 7He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous. He is a buckler/shield to them that walk uprightly. 8He keeps the paths of judgment, and preserves the way of His saints. 9Then shall you understand righteousness and judgment and equity. Yes, you shall understand every good path.
10 When wisdom enters into your heart and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, 11discretion shall preserve you, and understanding shall keep you 12to deliver you from the way of the evil man -- from the man named Paul that speaks froward, stiff-necked, perverse things.
13 The evil man is he who leaves the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, 14who rejoices to do evil, and who delights in the frowardness of the wicked. (To be froward is to be habitually disposed to disobedience and opposition. In other words, to be froward is to be like Paul.) 15The evil man is he whose ways are crooked and froward in their paths.
16 But cling to me and I will deliver you from the strange woman, the whore named religion, even from the strange whore named Christianity who seeks to seduce you by flattering you with her words. 17Christianity is she which forsakes the guide of her youth and who forgets the covenant of her God.
If you wonder why that is, it's because Christians tend to teach Jesus' Doctrine to their children in Sunday School. In fact, the singing, arts and crafts, verbal participation by children in Sunday school... while learning about Jesus and Spirituality is a format that I believe the anonymous 12-Step programs need to acquire for drawing more children into the Program. By the time Christian children reach adulthood, however, about all they hear is Paul being crammed down their throats. In the process, the adults forget the truth they were taught as children.
18 For her house, the house of Christianity, is inclined unto death, and her paths unto the dead. 19None that go unto her return again to God, neither take they hold of the paths of Life.
20 But I myself, the Lord, shall teach you so that you may walk in the way of goodness and keep the paths of the righteous, 21for the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it, 22but the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
Proverbs 3.1 My son, forget not my law, but let your heart keep my commandments, 2for length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add to you. 3Let not mercy and Truth forsake you. Bind them about your neck. Write them upon the table of your heart. 4In doing so shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge God, and He shall direct your paths. 7Be not wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord, and depart from evil. 8It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones.
In those verses, God is telling the people who intellectualize themselves out of believing God to knock it off. In fact, their failure to let themselves feel their little kid gut feelings preferring instead to stay locked in the thoughts that rumble through their head is a huge character defect for many humans that prevents them from making direct, conscious contact with God. In fact, one of the fascinating aspects of working the 12 Steps is how often Spirit-led members sense when another person is talking from his head instead of talking from his belly like God's children do.
9 Honor the Lord with your substance, and with the first fruits of all your increase. 10So shall your barns be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst out with new wine.
11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither be weary of His correction, 12for whom the Lord loves, He corrects. He does so much as a human father disciplines the son in whom he delights.
13 Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding, 14for the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof is far better than the gain of fine gold. 15She, wisdom and understanding, is more precious than rubies, and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her. 16Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor. 17Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is every one that retains her.
19 The Lord by wisdom has founded the earth. By understanding has He established the Heavens. 20By the Lord's knowledge the depths of Satan are broken up, and the clouds that prevented man from perceiving the Lord's Doctrine drop down like the dew.
21 My son, let not the Master's teachings depart from your eyes. Keep sound wisdom and discretion. 22So shall they be life unto your soul and grace to your neck. 23Then shall you walk in your way safely, and your foot shall not stumble. 24When you lay down, you shall not be afraid. Yea, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked when it comes.
Ooh. That's a pop-out verse for me. That sudden fear is the Holy Ghost. We are not to let the fear His presence instills make us fearful ourselves. We are not to let our own personal emotions add to the feeling of fear. Instead, we are to pay attention to the message His presence is inserting into our brain, and speak it. I wish I had seen and perceived that scripture long ago. If I had, I might never have blasphemed the Holy Ghost.
26 For the Lord shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being taken/snared.
28 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due when it is in the power of your hand to do it. 28Say not unto your neighbor, "Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give to you," when you already have whatever they want by you. 29Devise not evil against your neighbor, seeing he dwells securely by you.
30 Strive not with a man without a cause if he has done you no harm. 31Envy not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways, 32for the froward man is abomination to the Lord. His secret is revealed with the righteous.
33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked Paul, but God blesses the habitation of the just. 34Surely He scorns the scorners, but He gives grace unto the lowly, truly humble, teachable people. 35The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
Hmm. That pretty much shoots down Paul's claim that obeying God's law and commandments forces people to sin, eh? Reading Proverbs 2 and 3 feels so much like I felt when I heard the Master speak in my ear. The scripture is straightforward, unpretentious, informational, non-condemning, peace-breathing, and filled with promises that only God and His Son can fulfill. So you go right ahead. Deliver us from evil, Lord.
