12So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
14Do all things without grumbling or disputing; 15so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, 16holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain. 17But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all. 18You too, I urge you, rejoice in the same way and share your joy with me.
Thank you for your wonderful posts Macky and Elaine. God bless you.

MY BIBLE STUDY PARTNER WHO IS A NON SECTARIAN BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN INSISTS ON THE IDEA THAT THE BIBLE SHOULD BE INTERPRETED AS IT IS... LITERALLY, NO OTHER WAY BUT HOW THE WORDS ARE PLAINLY WRITTEN. AS A CATHOLIC, I WAS TAUGHT OTHERWISE. THE VERSE ABOVE... I DOUBT THAT IT CAN BE TAKEN AS IT IS. IF IT IS LITERALLY WRITTEN... THEN I ASK WHY??? I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE THINKING THAT MY GOD WILL JUSTIFY INEQUALITY BETWEEN GENDERS LIKE THAT. I TRULY HOPE THIS VERSE IS NOT BEING USED AS A JUSTIFICATION TO THINK WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE HEARD, NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK HER MIND, AND OVER ALL UNIMPORTANT. I HAVE HEARD WOMEN TAKE ON MALE DOMINION OVER THEM BECAUSE OF THIS VERSE AND IT MAKES ME SAD. :-(
2 Corinthians 5:20-21 Therefore,we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
vs 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
As believers, we are Christ's ambassadors, sent with His message of reconcilation has an important responsibility. We dare not take this responsibility lightly. How well are you fulfilling your commission as Christ's ambassador?
Christ's righteousness is poured into us at our conversion. This is what Christians mean by Christ's atonement for sin.
