a reply to: Rex282Jesus was in fact "giving orders", which is what "commandments" are.
To repent means to change.Yahoshua was making proclamation statements(preaching) not giving orders.He was saying you will change while you enter the Kingdom of the creator God.He was not saying "you" must change "yourself" by cleaning up your act or you won't be allowed into the Kingdom of the creator God.ALL of mankind WILL enter into the Kingdom of the creator God and to do so you "will" be changed (repented).It is a process not an event.
Only those who are "in Christ" will be changed.
We must "repent", which means changing ourselves, cleaning ourselves up.
There is the parable that Jesus taught to explain that, of the man invited to the wedding party but did not put his wedding garment on.
He was not just cast out, but was also severely beaten.
Jesus said that not all who say, "Lord, Lord" will enter the Kingdom.
My comments can be backed up by the Bible, including sainthood and glorification.
The theology of your Belief System religion supports what I am saying about the futility of religion that I could not explain it better in my own words.You are a shinning example to all of your sinlessness.
