    Good lesson, Jean, thank you….

    I’ve often wondered how it would have gone if Paul had been there to tell these Pharisees what he said in Romans 3:20 – “Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin”.

    I have a hunch Paul’s words wouldn’t have been very popular….

    Thank you Richard and Owen.

  4. John 20:29 says:

    Owen, Paul, I suspect, would have met our Lord’s fate…
    Salvation (redemption) is easy for an honest man, but most of us are inclined to be less than honest, eh? Self justification comes naturally – it does for me anyway…

    another great post of God’s truth for the PhxP peeps to ponder

    John 20: ,

    Agreed. If not crucified, then beaten or stoned. Although Paul never claimed to be God, as Jesus did.

    And yes, with the self-justification – it’s frightening to me how easy that comes sometimes.

  7. Owen says:

  8. Jean says:

    Me too, I think. 🙂

  9. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    LOL – I was driving to an appointment and just spoke that into my phone saying after I think I may have more… or not 😉

  10. Owen says:

    MLD, good thing you’re not up here, they have very strict laws about using your devices while driving…. 😉

  11. Jean says:

    Owen, if your #10 is designed to repent MLD, good luck my friend. 🙂

  12. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Owen & Jean, Arizona does not have laws against texting and driving. We don’t have helmet laws either. We are left to live our life.
