If the Gentiles were not proselytes and uncircumcised could they still enter the synagogue?

Based on scriptures, I have said it and will keep saying it again: I was not saved by observing the law (fornicating no more, committing adultery no more, stealing no more, killing no more etc) but I was saved by faith in Christ Jesus. (Grace ) And my sins were wiped off; my past sins, present and future, as long as I choose to remain under Grace, where the power of sin over my life has been broken and subdued eternally- that means when perhaps I fall to sin, (Pastor Vasile's son is still his son even if he is locked up in jail) the effect of sins cannot be felt over me, because of the covering of Grace- the New covenant of life which I am in with God, as t is entirely impossible for anyone whether born again or not to claim he or she has no sin in him: where sin before God, is sin, even as much as those things done out of faith. The power of death or judgment is sin, the power of sin is the law, but were there is no law, there is no transgression, and where there is no transgression, there is no sin, and where there is no sin, there is no judgment or death. Therefore, I AM NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE, SAVED BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, WHERE I STAND AS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS, HELPED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO LIVE THE CHRIST LIFE, YET BATH WITH MERCY AND GRACE WHEN I FALTER.....

Second, third , fourth marriages is adultery unless the man has died for the woman and both if they remarry. So many have stay in sin.. Lets get real.. Mark 10: 7-12..

More suitable for today's time if an armed gunman is standing before me and my initial reaction is panic I have sinned...but that does not mean that I did not have fear. However it's a good man is standing before me and I have fear but I remain calm in inside of myself I pray and and trust in the Lord I have not sinned. We have to understand that as humans we will have any emotion, but it is what we do with the emotion that will determine the sin.

Again I disagree.. The Bible encourages us to fear not, but where does it call fear a 'Sin'? If that is the case then anger is a sin... And we know very clearly the Bible says be angry but sin not. I respect that you may be well educated, however I disagree that fear is a sin. The Bible says to bring everything to God and so if I have a fear my initial reaction is to bring it to God. There for having the fear is not the sin, but it is a reaction that determines whether or not you have sin. If I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I worry I have sinned. But if I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I pray and trust God I have not sinned.

I don't agree that fear is a sin.. I do believe that the action you perform once you feel the emotion of fear could be sinful but to fear is not sin. Just like to have anger is not a sin for the Bible declares to be angry but sin not. So if I have a fear it's what follows that emotion that determines the sin. If It's raining and I have limited visibility that will create fear, and if I panic I have sinned, but if I am calm and pray I have not sinned even though I did fear.

Confession of sins

Seven (7) steps to become a true Christian (The exemple of the Colossians)

23 dec 2007 | ora 00.00 Doctrine | Priest Vasile Filat

A great number of people that consider themselves Christians remain only with the name. Many of them want to change the way how the things go on and want to be true Christians. If you have this wish, I want to present you in this article seven steps to become a genuine Christian. I will follow up these steps in the lives of the Christians from Colossae, to whom Apostle Paul wrote the epistle with the same name.

1. Realize your sinful condition

If one wants to draw near to God, firstly he has to realize his own spiritual condition. Apostle Paul wrote about the Colossians:

… although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds (Colossians 1:21)

… you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh (Colossians 2:13)

For it is because of these things (immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry) that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. (Colossians 3:5–7)(NASB)

Maybe all these things that have once described Colossians are the description of your spiritual condition? Are you ready to admit this? Only so you will be able to go to the next step to become a true Christian.

2. Listen to the word of truth of the Gospel

The Gospel is the good news of God about the salvation that He brings to all people through faith in Jesus Christ. No one can believe in God unless he hears His Word. Apostle Paul writes that they “have previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel ” about a hope of the eternal life, in which they believed and that is laid up for them in heavens. Have you heard this news? Have people come to you to tell you about the forgiveness from God? How did you behave with them and how did you answer to the message they had brought to you?

3. Accept the calling of God

God calls us to reconcile with Him through the Gospel, as it is written:

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. (Colossians 3;15)(NASB)

How have you answered to the calling of God until the present time?

4. Ask for forgiveness from God

The Most High is ready to forgive all our sins and to give us a new life when we come with repentance. Here is what he had done for the Colossians and it is ready to do for each of us:

When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. (Colossians 2:13–14)(NASB)

The forgiveness of God was perfect for the Colossians and it can be this way for you too, if you come to Him with repentance in your heart.

5. Die  with Christ

When I say this, I don’t refer to death as to Christ’s crucifixion on the cross, that was His physical death. Through His death on Golgotha, the Lord Jesus had a total victory against sin. To die with Him means to die for sin and not to live the same way anymore. It means to make a total decision not to live for your sinful nature. Here is what Apostle Paul writes about the Christians from Colossae:

For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience. (Colossians 3:3–6)(NASB)

The death with Christ means a total, categorical and definitive separation from all sins listed above or others that are similar with them and that are not comaptible with the life of faith.

6. Raise up with Christ

The life of the Christian is not only an effort to abstain from the evil and sinful habit. This is a beautiful living in the fulfilment of the spiritual things. That’s why Apostle Paul could say to the Colossians that had been raised up with Christ, the following things:

Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. (Colossians 3:1–2)(NASB)

7. Study the Word of God

Before they were called Christians, the believers in the Lord Jesus had been called “disciples”. This was their first name and this is what Jesus waits from each of us, to be good disciples of His. The Christians from Colossae received teachings from Epaphra. Who do you receive healthy teachings from? Who teaches you from the Word of God? You can not be a good Christian if you don’t study the Bible.

Be a true Christian!
