Romans 6:18,22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 Having then been set free from sin, you became the slaves of righteousness.7 [He is speaking to very mature Christians, who have suffered on the cross to be free with sin; but they can still fall to temptation if they are not watchful because they have not received the second step of perfection: to be born of God and unable to sin again because the Father protects them. 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18, John 10:29. A slave of righteousness does only what he is ordered to do and says only what he hears from the Spirit immediately before speaking.]

 22 But now being made free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have the fruit [reward] of holiness, and at the end, everlasting life.9 [To be a slave to God does not mean you go to Bible College or Seminary; that would be totally counter productive. To be a slave to God is to follow the Spirit's continual guidance and commands that you hear and see — but to your supreme joy of sharing in his works of love. Every word and every action is virtuous and perfect because God prompts them; you are doing his will on earth as it is done in heaven by the angels, as you remain in whatever is your current, honest occupation. See this verse's footnote for a more detailed explanation.]

Luke 1:74-75

 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.]

 75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.3 [You cannot be holy or righteous while still sinning; those who sin are slaves to sin, and we must become slaves to righteousness before we are righteous. Jesus only spoke, judged, and did as He was prompted and ordered by God; to practice righteousness, we also must be able to only speak what we hear Him order us to say and only do what we are ordered to do by God. See the definition of righteousness for more detail. ]
