(video) Richard Anderson: “Be Perfect”…..Means, DO NOT SIN! :)

And it’s not only having sex, but lusting, JESUS said in Matthew 5:27-30:

“YE HAVE HEARD that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: BUT I SAY unto you, That whosoever LOOKETH on a woman TO LUST after her hath COMMITTED ADULTERY with her already IN HIS HEART. And IF thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is PROFITABLE FOR THEE THAT ONE OF THY MEMBERS SHOULD PERISH, AND NOT THAT THY WHOLE BODY SHOULD BE CAST INTO HELL. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast INTO HELL.”

 “Be Perfect”…..Means, DO NOT SIN! :)

John Burton: “It’s shocking how many supposed mature Christians argue against the call to holiness (as if it were impossible), and they promote the idea that sin is an unfortunate but expected part of our lives. They believe, contrary to Scripture, that the cross paid the penalty of sin but it doesn’t give us power over sin” • “The truth is that we never have to sin again. If we do, it should be an uncommon, major event that causes us to hit our face in mourning, tears, brokenness and urgent repentance”

It’s shocking how many supposed mature Christians argue against the call to holiness (as if it were impossible), and they promote the idea that sin is an unfortunate but expected part of our lives. They believe, contrary to Scripture, that the cross paid the penalty of sin but it doesn’t give us power over sin. Simply, they expect to sin and don’t feel concern over their condition or the sinful habits of others.

The truth is that we never have to sin again. If we do, it should be an uncommon, major event that causes us to hit our face in mourning, tears, brokenness and urgent repentance.

Sin can and does cause many followers of Jesus to spend eternity in Hell. To say sin is an expected part of Christian’s lives is a grievous offense to the cross.

(video) Kevin Conner: Disciplines Of My Life

Kevin Conner was one of my Bible teachers at Abbott Loop Bible School for one semester in ~ 1984.

Since this message is about discipline, it’s interesting thatKevin once told me how important it is to work out physically for good health, after I was told by God: “ask him about healing.” I was surprised to hear something practical instead of spiritual.

In this message, Kevin says he was a few weeks from turning 86, and this was published on Feb 26, 2013.

1) Discipline of my mind

“If we don’t guard the gates, then sin enters through the mind.”

“The eye gate and the ear gate.”

“There are three sources of thought that we all have. … Thoughts that come from God…, self…, and from the Devil. … We all have to discern the source of our thoughts.”

2) Discipline of my attitudes

“Attitude indicates performance.”

3) Discipline of my prayer life

“If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we? If Jesus in his humanity totally depended upon the Father for all he was, all he said, all he did — and he continually kept that line to the Father day and night — how much more do we?”

“My wife is different than me. I generally get up about 6:30 or 7:00, if I’m tired, just to pray and to make sure I feel right with God.”

4) Discipline of the Word

“If you don’t make time you’ll never find time. You have to make time to read the Word. It’s a discipline. The same is your prayer life. ”

5) Discipline of my spirit

“I have to continually guard my spirit.”

“We impart beyond our words. We impart what’s in our spirit.”

6) Discipline of honesty

“The opposite of honesty is hypocrisy.”

7) Discipline of my time

TESTIMONY — raised an orphan

Kevin can say that since he became born-again: “No wasted years!”

Kevin Conner on the Believer’s CONDITIONAL Security: “OBEDIENCE IS the very law of SECURITY for all created beings. There can be NO SUCH THING as UNCONDITIONAL security.” — WARNINGS against backsliding SHOW that the security of the believer is conditional upon obedience and faith • What God has provided in Christ man must receive and apply • Divine SOVEREIGNTY *and* human RESPONSIBILITY meet together in the great redemptive plan • Christ is “the author of eternal salvation unto all them that OBEY him”(Hebrews 5:9) • Upon HEARING and FOLLOWING the Shepherd they receive eternal life and will never perish • AS HE OBEYS the Word of the Lord his SECURITY against backsliding and apostacy is FULLY GUARANTEED

Sin causes instant spiritual BLINDNESS… Sadly, most Christians will make a deal with the Devil to gratify the desires of the flesh; truly believing that Father God will forgive them for their wanted/Planned sin after they’ve enjoyed it for a while….This is a PLAGUE in our modern churches…Sin-Repent. Sin-Repent. Sin-Repent….All PLANNED SIN (((INIQUITY))) NEEDS TO BE MOURNED OVER; REPENTED OF, AND DONE AWAY WITH FOREVER IN ORDER TO BE FORGIVEN!!! This is the Plague that causes Blindness in our churches today!

Pastors REFUSE TO (((WARN))) ANYONE OF THIS PLAGUE—ALL THE WHILE TEACHING A (((FALSE-GRACE))) MESSAGE THAT IS LEADING EVERYONE TO HELL in their congregations!!! (((THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS/MERCY/ OR GRACE FOR ACTIVE SIN)))!!!

Let me put it this way: (IF) you accepted me into your home; gave me a place at your table, and I started ((knowingly)) doing the things you hate, in your house…..Then, feeling guilty and ashamed; I asked you for forgiveness and you forgave me, BUT…..I started doing it again, and again, and again…Wouldn’t you KICK ME OUT OF YOUR HOUSE UNTIL I HAD A TRACK-RECORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS???

Father God will NOT EVER let anyone into Heaven with WANTED-SIN in their hearts….((THE TRUTH!))
