Luke 1:74

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 74 That he would grant to us, that being delivered out of the hand of our enemies we might serve him without fear, [Our enemies are lust, pride, envy, anger, hatred, sexual immorality, dishonesty, profanity, foolishness, partying, evil thoughts, etc. Christianity incorrectly would have you believe that Jesus came to free you from the guilt of your sins, which makes Jesus a promoter of sins. Your feelings of guilt over sin come from the Spirit of God within every man and should be the motivator to change, not to continue sinning, which is the broad way to destruction. The only way you could stand in God's presence without fear is to be totally changed to be pure and holy, which only occurs by God destroying all sin within you through your bearing the inward cross of self-denial; then you are walking the same way as Jesus walked and in the world as Jesus was with perfection, purity, and holiness.]
