    the righteousness toward God by faith like Jesus Christ....

    It actually says "righteousness OF God". What does that mean? According to me, God IS righteousness. Also, most Bibles say, "faith in Jesus Christ". According to me, the goal should be the faith LIKE Jesus Christ had.

    Phillipians 2:5 Let this mind(spirit) be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

    same mind different people

    Ephesians 3:16-17
    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    1 John 1:7
    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the Spirit(blood) of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

    they were the exception because they were doing the lowliest of things to survive and be self-sufficient. they were the marginalized and disenfranchised by their culture. Jesus loved them all the more and advocated for them. You cannot serve Love and money.

    I pretty sure you are familiar with Hebrews 11.

    6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
    7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

    They had faith and their action proved it.

    noah didn't have faith in jesus. he had faith in love, the spirit of love. without belief/faith nothing can be realized. with Love all things are possible.

    Let this mind(Thought)

    Ephesians3:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
    19 And to know the love of Christ(Jesus), which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    Do you bow your knee to Jesus?

    26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

    This answers it.

    1 Peter 2:21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

    You say that it is written he is justified who BELIEVES in Jesus, but why not see for yourself that it is actually written he is justified who has faith Jesus.

    You should know that the ancient language which the Bible was written does not follow modern rules of Grammar.

    Greek Concordance: πίστεως (pisteōs) -- 94 Occurrences

    The righteousness of the man Jesus is what justifies us who have faith like Jesus. See 1 Peter 2:21

    i understand this. this was prophecied. Jesus said that those who didn't understand would do this. he was persecuted by the religious elitists too for associating himself with the name.

    John 5:43
    I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

    Matthew 10:22
    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    Mark 13:13
    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    Luke 6:22
    Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

    Luke 21:17
    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.



    If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.

    it's the english language. it isn't mine. we're using the english language to communicate via these posts. the english language is just a language. there is nothing personal about it; unless someone makes it personal.


    its interesting that you are divisive and savagewind, roaringsilence, and i are inclusive.


    Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

    Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of names and of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
