GOD's holiness, His purity, His light is beyond mortal comprehension, yet ELCA and others|
teach mere confessing believers are His image or have His nature, so denying Him.
GOD's word clearly says Adam was His image and His grace, love, power redeems a few
or restores a few or re-establishes a few, as very few truly believe and truly obey Him.
GOD's process or work of calling us into belief, obedience preceed His work of Col2 1Jn1:7,
totally ignored and mistaught by the Judas church, we must Lk12:50 Rom6 as Him.
GOD alone baptises, circumcises, cleans or fire purges us into His holy, pure image
to walk as Him, then we enter His life, His kingdom, His joy, His presence, union.
GOD enters some to clean us to be His holy temple Jn2:15,16 changing our nature Jn2:6-10,
so we may grow into Him Eph4:15 or 1Jn2:24,27 into 1Jn3:6,9 or Jn14 into Jn15 or Zech13:9.
GOD's word clearly says justification (right), redemption, sanctification are gifts in Him,
proved in the process of repentance, baptism, remission (ceasing), then into His great gift.
GOD's nature never abides in mere confessors copying demons Mat8:29-31 Jam2:19, nor in
anointed (lukewarm) but grows from Rom6:11-13 level, thru 6:14, then full in 8:14,29 level.
