Just to clarify my reasoning for my last response (revelation)

posted by PureWord(R), 09.19.2014

I believe it would be very difficult for many with a Catholic background to receive the teaching of "Grace" because Catholicism has so much to do with "works" (the law) and "penance" (paying for our sins, when Jesus already paid for them). The message of Grace says that Jesus took all of our sin, past, present and future. So if He did, why are we acting as if He didn't. Jesus was our total and complete substitute. He paid it all, not just part of it. He took our sin and gave us His righteousness. We are standing in complete righteousness with our Father, not because of anything that we have done (except for accepting Jesus by faith) but all because of what He has done for us. Go to the Holy Spirit, the Giver of Truth, and ask Him if this is now our standing with our Father.

1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
