How do we gain ACCESS into grace (Rm 5:1-2) without the Spiritual gift of faith received after Holy Spirit baptism (I Cor 12:9;13)?
I'VE NOTICED SO MANY OF TODAY'S "CHRISTIANS" BELIEVE THEY'RE "SAVED BY GRACE ALONE THROUGH FAITH ALONE" AS THEY'VE ***MISINTERPRETED*** EPHESIANS 2:8-9.
DON'T THE KNOW ACCORDING TO I COR 12:9; 13 THEY HAVE ***NO*** >>>FAITH<<< UNLESS RECEIVED "FROM HEAVEN" (JOHN 3:27) AS A "SPIRITUAL GIFT" (I COR 12:9) AFTER HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM (I COR 12:13) TO EVEN GAIN ***"ACCESS*** INTO THIS GRACE" (RM 5:1-2)???

I. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.
II. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
III. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
IV. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.
V. Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.
VI. People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one’s best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.
VII. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word

Actually, faith is a gift bestowed by God on all who want it -- before the baptism by fire and the Holy Ghost. Faith is in large part a willingness to find out for ourselves.

"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us... ". (Titus 2:11-12)
Grace teaches us. How do we have access into the benefits of God's grace? It is by believing, trusting and obeying the things the scriptures (God's word) teaches.
"Noah found grace in the eye of theLord" (Gen. 6:8) How was this Grace conveyed to Noah? "And God said to Noah..." ( Gen. 6:13 ff). God taught him what he needed to know and do.
How did Noah receive the benefits of that grace? He believed and obeyed what God said. "Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did." ( Gen.6:22)
"By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household..." ( Hebrews 11:7)
Grace teaches. By faith we obey that teaching, and thus, we receive the benefits of that grace.

Grace is not mercy. Grace is power. We receive grace as it is given to us by God.

Grace (unmerited favor) is appropriated through faith, Eph. 2 (Heb. 11:1, 6 Rom. 10:17). "Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord." Gen. 6:8.

OR IS IT THAT HE SENT ME HERE SO HE COULD RECORD HOW ***YOU*** PEOPLE "ACT LIKE PHARISEES" (JEREMIAH 23:24)?
STUCK IN >>>THE CULT<<< OF A RELIGION CALLED "CHRISTIANITY" CREATED FOR MANKIND BY THE roman catholic church!
YOU DIDN'T ANSWER THE QUESTION! JUST RAN OUT OF THE STALL WITH "ACCUSATIONS" (REVELATION 12:10) WHICH >>>PROVES<<< WHAT A WATER BAPTISM DOES FOR THE RCC'S CREATED "CHRISTIANS" WHO ARE IN "UNBELIEF" (REVELATION 21:8)!
YOU SEE THE UPDATES?
YOU SEE THOSE SCRIPTURES?
ARE THEY NOT ***WRITTEN?***
If you won’t listen to Moses, the prophets, the apostles or even Jesus Christ Himself, why would you care about WHO GOD SENDS has to say?

If you won’t listen to Moses, the prophets, the apostles or even Jesus Christ Himself, why would you care about what anybody here has to say?
The one good thing about you Norine, God has sent you here as a reminder to us all of how not to act like a Pharisee.
