"26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[g]says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. "-Hebrews 10 New King James Version (NKJV)
This is teaching about "The Just Live by Faith of the Christ"
Who in the Bible is considered to have "received the knowledge of the truth", who are considered to have the "knowledge of the truth" today? we are sinners in nature because we are flush, so how do we differentiate between sinning "naturally" or "willfully".
Did any words from God gives any simpler message to back this teaching/message up?
Hey all, I am getting married soon and am trying to figure out which verses to use for the readings in mass. I'd like to bring an epic quality, using strength, unity, and faith as a theme of the wedding as a whole. Trying to bring the shouldering of a large responsibility of another person and the future of your culture to the forefront. Probably preferential to non militant ones, but it would be great if they were powerful / stimulating / engaging. Wondering if anyone here has ideas.
In this passage Moses speaks in the first person about himself, then in verse 6 he says “...that you may know that I am the Lord your God.” Why does he say this? Obviously Moses is not saying that he is God. Am I missing something fundamental?
