I'm here to brag in the lord. For I have suffered so much that I believe i qualify for this scripture:
1 Peter 4:1 whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.
I have suffered that much. My flesh has been crucified. 10 years on the line. I believe that this scripture applies to me and it means I can never sin again. This is the level of my suffering.
Now I just need to know what Sin is.
What is your opinion of what sin is? For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of the lord.
Well now according to scripture I can never sin again even if I wanted to which I can't.
I guess i'm hoping that my suffering has provided me with a unique set of skills that are in requirement this very day and hour.
I can never sin according to the above scripture. Boast Boast.
Not really anything to boast about is it? Suffered done with sin. How much suffering to qualify for this scripture?
If the bible is true then i'm free and done with sin for eternity.
Are you still a slave to sin?
Sin is pain as I understand then death.
What really is sin.
What have I become free of that others are still a slave to?
I have been tempered in the fires. I have been refined in raw fire. So how much is enough.
What other benefits does pain provide scriptually.
SOrry for boring you.
What is sin.
Am i truly free. Have i suffered enough.
You need love I guess because you can throw yourself on the fire but without love you gain nothing.
I hope I have love. To have suffered so much without only to gain nothing.
I hope I gain at least something from my suffering and tangle with sin and death.
Foster love in me.
The unfavorable associations and connotations of the use of the left hand among cultures are varied. In some areas, in order to preserve cleanliness where sanitation was an issue, the right hand, as the dominant hand of most individuals, was used for eating, handling food, and social interactions. The left hand would then be used for personal hygiene, specifically after urination and defecation. These rules were imposed on all, no matter their dominant hand. Through these practices, the left hand became known as the "unclean" hand. Currently, amongst Muslims and in some societies including Nepal and India it is still customary to use the left hand for cleaning oneself with water after defecating. The right hand is commonly known in contradistinction from the left, as the hand used for eating. In many religions, including Christianity, the right hand of God is the favored hand. For example, Jesus sits at God's right side. God's left hand, however, is the hand of judgement. The Archangel Gabriel is sometimes called "God's left hand", sits at God's left side, and is one of six angels of death. Those who fall from favor with God are sent to left, as described in Matthew 25: 32–33, in which sheep represent the righteous and goats represent the fallen: "And he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right, but the goats on his left." In 19th-century Europe, homosexuals were referred to as "left-handed", whilst in Protestant nations, Roman Catholics were called "left-footers". Black magic is sometimes referred to as the "left-hand path", which is strongly associated with Satanism. Various innocuous activities and experiences become rude or even signs of bad luck when the left hand becomes involved. In some parts of Scotland, it is considered bad luck to meet a left-handed person at the start of a journey. In Ghana, pointing, gesturing, giving or receiving items with the left hand is considered taboo or rude. A person giving directions will put their left hand behind them and even physically strain to point with their right hand if necessary. In some Asian countries, holding eating utensils in the left hand is considered impolite.

You believe you are supposed to follow all of the laws etc?
Including all of the ones in the Old Testament?
You do know some are pretty horrible? And some are flat out stupid?
