For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eonian life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

There's a false religion among many of God's people that would die at once if their pastors preached the whole of Romans 6 for every service for a month or two, though surely as the beast of Revelation that had the deadly wound and was healed, it would try to come back, so that perhaps teaching the whole of Romans 6 for an entire year may be necessary instead.  It is this false idea of dying to self in order to obey God and at it's heart, it's paganism to the core.

For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness, according to Romans 6:20.

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? Romans 6:16

If it produces death, one was obeying sin, according to this verse, and not righteousness. Death is pagan and not the fruit of Christ.

And do not present your members as weapons of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as weapons of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!  Romans 6:13-15

If what you are doing is producing estrangement to the plan of God, and is producing sin, and leading others into sin who otherwise wouldn't, then how is your death to self religion working out for you, if you hold to that Satanic error?  Death means Satan, and life means the Christ of God, according to John 10:10.  It really is that simple. We present ourselves to God as being alive from the dead, alive through Christ Jesus Whom we have obeyed!

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
