In reference to the elect of God and who they may be, and how many their are– I guess one reason I have a problem with tiny tiny numbers is that the gate is narrow, but it is not a mouse hole either. Nor is it the millions who define themselves in Christiandom. I’m ok with not knowing this – God will call whom He calls.
What do you make of Romans 2? “For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law unto themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, which their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse of even excuse them, on that day…..”
That’s what I was thinking of when I wrote before- men who do what is right without knowing the fulness of God. Could this be those Martin spoke of today who are part of the 144,000? But they are a law unto themselves, not the Jewish law so I am still not understanding.

Thank you, again … might you want to talk?

The reason I ask … ponder on this, often … is that I’ve been told that …if I acknowledge the most obvious fact that I fail (sin) on a daily basis, … that by my observing this as a fact,
then I’m not really a believer, am just fooling myself. That is, somehow, this person telling me this, sees our daily failures as something other than real “sins,” because “obviously” a believer doesn’t sin!
I sin … I sin, often, and I define sin as the failure to be loving, both towards God and towards others … I sin, I fail, often. And, I’m honest enough with myself that I acknowledge that I am a sinner …

Ergo … I’ve been told, with “scriptural” backing, that I’m not really a believer …

And yet, I do believe… believe in spiritual matters, “not observable” …
And so, it remains a nagging hurtful question.

Keep reading into Chapter 7, I think you will find Paul understood this situation in his own life very well. You could also do a search on “Simul Justus et Peccator” (also spelt Pecator on some sites), it seems that Luther got this part of Paul’s message very clearly.

If the basic double moral absolute that is “the spirit of the law” (“love Thy God” and “love thy neighbor”) is fulfilled in us … through Christ…This then this lines up with:

Rom 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

[Note: Sin or failing is often defined by the Gospel standard of a failure to love God and your fellow man, which some have discounted because it’s not from Paul; however, the above three verses are, so that objection is invalid. That is, first we have to accurately define “sin” before we can answer the nagging question of whether or not a believer continues to sin (fail) …?????

6:11* Thus also, you, to~yourselves dead [ones], indeed, be you reckoning to be unto~the failing;
yet, to~living with~the God in with~Anointed Yeshua, the Lord of~ours.

My own reading of Romans, but be that as it may, how does reckoning ourselves dead to failings (sins) mesh with the fact that we still stumble our way through life, doing unloving things, daily?
