But you were, and people do, whether consciencely or subconsciencly. Supressing the truth, is perhaps the most common sin to all mankind, that is, not acknowledging or giving God the glory He deserves.Originally posted by puritancovenanterAs an unbeliever I wasn't trying to repress truth.
"...the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so." (Romans 8:7)
The nature of sinful nature is to supress the truth...in unrighteouness.
"...whatever is not from faith is sin." (Romans 14:23)
In other words, your primary justification for being a non-believer had more to do with pragmatism than the actual truth of the matter..Originally posted by puritancovenanter I just didn't care because I didn't understand or know.
Praise God for giving you the desire to read the Word and opening your eyes to the truth of His Word.Originally posted by puritancovenanter I discovered Christ by reading the Word. I wasn't introduced to Christianity be means of a human teaching me truth. I had never heard the Gospel when I read the Gospel. I didn't know anything about Jesus.
