I got some feedback on being perfect from a previous post and a YouTube video. It really made me “think.” Actually inspiration came to me…not really thinking. And I really thank those who responded, as I grew personally from the discussion.
The feedback said that they know they are not perfect. And even if one could be, what would come after that?
Actually I sort of agree with them…in my mind…but through inspiration it is hard to hold that idea. It is just the programming that we get in this life. We are told that we are “naughty” when we are young…and sinful when we get older. I can feel the shame and guilt from it.
Then when this revelation came, with all the supporting Scriptures…and many other sources from my research, I had to change my attitude.
Scriptures say to be Perfect even as Jesus is….you will do more than these things…talking about the miracles he is doing.
Also He said go and sin no more…many times…it is the command to be perfect.
The inspiration said that if there is even a seed of doubt, you will not achieve anything. It’s got to do with faith…believing without a doubt
It says in the Bible that if we accept Christ…we become righteous…God sees us as righteous and we can then enter into His presence…
Seems like we can become Perfect!!! Pretty Deep…Hard to understand…because we’ve all been told the opposite all our lives.
And if we are not perfect, then what are we…evil…????
We are made in His image therefore perfect.
The Kingdom of Heaven is within…how can that be if are imperfect.
Jesus removes our sin!!!
We have to see ourselves as perfect as God does.
Those are just some of the Scriptures, but my research found many other places and teachings that say…or at least imply…our perfectness.
The Universe is one…we are one…
Creation is perfect…as we are.
In the parable of the man and the white horse… a series of circumstances occur such as keeping a very valuable horse, then losing it…which is a “bad” thing, but it comes back with 10 other horses…which is a “good” thing. Then another bad thing happens then a good thing. The idea is to quit making judgments about our life. We really don’t know ultimately what “sin” is.
So is being imperfect evil?…it is taught that way. There is no gray area…evil or perfect. But we must believe the ultimate result is perfectness or we have chaos!!!
So it seems like when we look at our lives there is no way we can be perfect..and even if we are, what do we do then, like what’s next, but when the Perfect One tells us to be perfect and we can…maybe we should listen!
