At ARC Thursday Bible Study today 8/22/2019 Pastor Edwards mentioned that perfection in the Bible is about God working through us via the Holy Ghost, and in our obedience to the leading of the Spirit. Our busy physical life has a way of sucking away our Spirituality.
In a religious mood, repentance does not and will not work as biblically required from and in the Bible. When we truly repent, God gives us a new true heart not to do again and again, the sin from the repentance that was done. And we are to be careful about intentional and deliberate sin (or disobedience to God’s word) in our life.
