A fellow Christian brother, Derrick posted the following comment on my post "Judicial Forgiveness and Parental Forgiveness - Part 4":
Hi Stanley I don't think you are going to change your mind, but does your brand of 'Christian life' (very different from mine) allow for any humility before God (eg. Paul calling himself the chief of sinners), or any subjective guilt (eg. Paul called himself a wretched man) or any confession of sins? Btw, I do not know any Christian who find the above three weary tasks to do, since we do them not to gain acceptance from God. Rather they are natural actions reflecting our Spirit life as a result of our faith. No offence, but I find your description of Christian life rather weird and not true liberation. In case you are wondering, I am not a fan of Kong Hee (I am actually against some of his teachings eg. prosperity gospel), but I find that he is closer to the fundamental gospel that Joseph Prince is.
I decided to publish Derrick's interesting comment and my response as a separate blog post as I hope that this will generate more responses from others and it would be interesting to see all the different "brands" ;-)
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that I stand righteous before God, not because of my own efforts, but because of Christ's sacrifice on the cross (Heb 10:14, 2 Cor 5:21).
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that whatever righteous acts I do are like filthy rags before God (Isaiah 64:6), therefore I boast not of my works but of the grace of God (Rom 4:2)
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges the completeness of Christ Jesus' work on the cross (John 19:30); because of Christ Jesus' sacrifice, ALL of my sins are forgiven.
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that God does not remember my sins anymore (Heb 10:17) for they have all been taken away by the blood of Christ Jesus(Heb 10:11-17)
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that even when I fail and commit sins, I am the blessed man to whom God does not impute sin (Rom 4:8).
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that God's grace is sufficient for me and His power is made perfect in my weakness, and therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. (2 Cor 12:9)
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me, and the life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Gal 2:20)
My "brand" of Christian life acknowledges that I have been forgiven much and therefore I love much (Luke 7:41-43, 47).
Does my "brand" of Christian life "allow for any humility before God"? How about your "brand" of Christian life?
