That's exactly what I said O.o and anyways, sorry, I meant about the new covenant verses:). I wasn't getting on you for not replying fast enough!
It goes the other way. If we love God and love others, then the rest of the commandments will follow. If we get into an attitude of trying to earn God's love, then we will ultimately fail. It all starts with love. If we truly love God, then our actions will exemplify that.
couldn't have said it any better:)
*.* we're all agreeing here...
but Jade you said that we're not bound by the law now you saw we are?
NO. Look up the definition of "bound" please.... Yeesh. If you still have a question as to my beliefs, THEN I will respond. P.s I assumed that I'd already read your response just by glancing at the time... I haven't been on the actual thread in a while:) ) J-Dog: hey man, we on da same side O.o
I pressed RETURN like 12346788865445677 times!!!!! -.-

I'm on my iPad. I will not get up and go to the computer in order to look at that link. So that leaves us with one other option: just say it:)
Walk or run with leaping strides: "Louis came bounding down the stairs".
Form the boundary of; enclose: "the ground was bounded by a main road on one side and a meadow on the other".
A leaping movement upward.
A territorial limit; a boundary.
Heading toward somewhere: "trains bound for Chicago"; "moon-bound astronauts".
Restricted or confined to a specified place: "his job kept him city-bound".
leap - spring - hop - bounce - skip - limit
boundary - limit - border - leap - spring - hop - bounce
i think noun #2 is what would apply to us
that is messed up
You mock me
how did i mock you?
Well, reading your post was like following a trail.. I thought you were revealing little bits of your wisdom one sentence at a time.... Idk
What the %#$%#$% just happened?
The dictionary happened.
I'm bumping this:)
P.s. where did all these old threads come from??? O.o
Romans 6:14. You cannot argue with that. If you are under something you are bound by it. Held accountable for.
I didn't read this thread.
But I don't like the title: "bound" by the [religious] law. The law is not imposing upon us like some sort of Big Brother regime. The law is for our own good. The law was for the Hebrews' good. If they felt constrained, it was because they were too eager to experience "freedom" at the price of "social stability".
The law might be for our own good, but it also trapped us before Jesus came. We can't completely atone for our sins by ourselves, nor can we be blameless before god, and the law condemned that. So dispute "bound" or not, but we abided by the law because God could not be in front of us with sin in our lives. We needed Jesus to close the gap.
