Where does it say in Scripture you are 100% perfect already? According to what God sees, He sees you through His Son, who is perfect already. With that I can say amen. However are we perfect? No.
Doesn't Paul state also:
I have not already obtained it nor have I already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
Where does this doctrine that we have already attained perfection come from? Even Paul did not say he was perfect but he was laying a hold of it. If we are already perfect, then why are we in need of a teacher?
We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
The Lord has shown me a great error in which we have been walking, still persuing the flesh and calling it the spirit. I have more to say on this, but it isn't the right time. We are not perfect, we still have not the redemption of our bodies, we still are not saved, but in this hope we are saved, knowing a time will come where we will be made perfect, and in the resurrection of the dead we are saved. We wait for it patiently.
In the meantime:
1 Timothy 4:13-14
Devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.Not neglecting your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Sll Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speak the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
So we all agree, those who know we are not perfect but only concentrate on those imperfections are not worthy of service in the Kingdom of God. Yet, we are in disagreement because we are not perfect and those who know we are not perfect look forward, teaching, correcting, building each other up, so that we may reach perfection, unity in the faith, unity in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ are running the race set before them and obtaining the prize and if we stop running believing they have already attained it, we have disqualified ourselves from the race, or have completely stopped short of what is the truth and are prey to those who wish to toss us back and forth in every wind of doctrine because we are not prepared and end up thinking that what we are doing is following the spirit but we have been in the flesh all a long.
As the Lord has shown me, if anyone of us thinks they have already arrived to that perfection, that unity in faith, that unity in the knowledge of the Son of God and is already mature, already attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ, we then have been disqualified from the race, side-tracked to another Gospel which is not the Gospel at all.
The need to be right, is not the focus of being right. We need to strive forward into the unity of all things attaining the full measure of Christ is, and as such we are given the gifts of God and Scripture to defend to know what is right, and defend what is right when there is question asked of us. We aren't there yet, but only those who look back are the ones who live in fear. So if we can recognize we are not perfect, and that imperfection causes us fear, we are not looking towards Christ and need to start running His direction.
Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
It is not my purpose to offend, my intentions are pure. I am not perfect by no means, but in my weakness I am made strong, and so are you. Please do not get mixed up about resting in Him, that is not what I am talking about, resting in Him and running the race are the same thing; We are all part of the Body of Christ, each of us have our part.
