Why do you think it is US that is judged according to OUR WORKS in the BODY? If these works are God doing them what need have WE to be judged?
The Father directs and enables, thus we like Jesus can do nothing apart from the Father.
Well, it is US because the work is being done in us and through us. Judging by a loving God is actually a wonderful thing.
I too am a babe in Christ; howbeit, a babe that knows that if we want to go on to perfection WE must USE/WORK that which the Father has given us less we become unprofitable to His work.
Well, the issue I see is from the belief of all men being saved. I see that it is impossible for any man to remain unprofitable, so how is that possible from your point of view?
Again Paul I am NOT talking about salvation
I am talking about going on to PERFECTION. And I am NOT saying they will remain unprofitable I am saying those that receive the talent and don't USE/WORK it ARE unprofitable. And it is NOT MY VIEW bro it's in the scriptures.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth
These scriptures tell us that if we do not USE the talent given us of God we are UNPROFITABLE servants. Now if we follow the logic that it is God USING the talent does it not then equate that it is God who did NOTHING with the talent; therefore, it is God that then is the one who has become unprofitable?
