  1. When we live Christian virtues we are living Godly lives as taught to us by Christ and given to us in His Word. The church is made of God's people and His people need to live as He taught us. Non-Christians need to see Christians live and practice what Jesus taught. Even non-believers often live these virtues as they show consideration and care for each other. These virtues are important in the our homes for the same reason but most importantly, Christians strive to live them to glorify God.
  2. It is so easy to slip into sins of the tongue as often we say things when we are angry and use words to put others down. When we do this, we not only damage ourselves by showing poor character but we also can damage the reputation of others. We are break free of sins of the tongue by prayer as we ask God to help us love all His children, by not saying things when in state of restrained anger and by striving to love others in all circumstances. We may not love their actions but if we truly love each other as God's children, we will not want to say hurtful things.
  3. Sexual **** is so difficult for people because living a pure life according to God's standards is counter to our culture. There is so much in our culture that promotes an unpure life and according to the standards of our culture, any desire for sex should be fulfilled without concern for what God's word teaches. Males have a high sexual desire and tempations abound. In our world it is common to try to rationalize sexual sins as merely normal human desires. It is quite true that the desire for sex is a strong, innate drive. But to suppose that God is neutral about how we exercise our sexuality runs directly in the face of Scripture. He has given us an arena in which we can exercise our sexuality freely -- the bonds of marriage. Outside of the bounds of marriage, sex can become destructive -- to children and families, for example. Sexual sins outside of marriage, both of the body and of the mind, can become compulsive and dangerous. So we are to put to death in us the permission to exercise our sexuality outside of the bounds of marriage.
  4. Q4. (Colossians 2:20-23) Why are legalism and asceticism unable to restrain the sinful nature? Christ is the one who makes sense out of faith

  6. Q3. (Colossians 2:13-15) How did forgiveness free us from the Law? OUR SINS WERE FORGIVEN AND BLOTTED OUT WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS. WE DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE OUR SIN REMOVED BY WORKS. What does this symbolize? How did the cross bring triumph over evil spiritual forces? THE LAW BEING NAILED TO THE CROSS SYMBOLIZES THAT AFTER JESUS

  8. <br /><br /><br />Philosophies can be based on false information that has just been passed along. Yes, I have been captivated by a deceptive belief system.
