False Teaching of "all have fallen short of the glory" and "no one is perfect."
They teach all have fallen short of the glory and no one is perfect. Keep Reading...
This verse, Romans 3:23, has so many times been taken out context by those whom taught this verse because they do not want to live up to the high standards that YaHuWShuWA ask of His followers. They think everyone will be graded on a curve! Not!
Give me just a moment to clear up this misconception as it is my hope that I will bring you truth of YaHuWaH's word, that if you truly hear and do this, it will change your life forever. This is a promise , not because I said it, but because the Master YaHuWShuWA said it.
Sha'ul (Paul) was addressing the YaHuWDaH (Hebrew / ABARY ) people when they tried to get the Romans to perform physical circumcision under Hebraic traditions that was not meant for the Romans (Gentile) people in order to receive the promise. Sha'ul stated that our Savior looks for circumcision of the heart (your Ruwach or mind). What Sha'ul was saying is that all (Hebrew and Gentile) people has fallen short so do not think you are any different than the Gentiles.
See the Hebrew word for perfect is "Tamiym" (tä·mam') which means to be made whole or complete (Strongs H8549).
In MattathYaHuW 5 (Matthew), YaHuWShuWA was instructing His disciples how to behave. In the last verse, 48, YaHuWShuWA told the disciples "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Shamayim (Heaven) is perfect.
Does this sound like perfection can not be reached? No it does not. YaHuWShuWA set the bar at a particular height so that those whom really want to be with Him and His Father YaHuWaH will strive and make it.
YaHuWShuWA stated to His Father when He prayed in YaHuWchanan 17:23 (John) that they may be made perfect. Why did YaHuWShuWA say that, because He sanctified them through the truth (YaHuWchanan 17:19). YaHuWShuWA was able to confess to YaHuWaH that validity of these men, all but one, and their character that they are worthy of YaHuWaH.
See, "this fall short" and "no one perfect" mentality will just keep YaHuWShuWA from being able to sanctify you and confess you before YaHuWaH, His Father.
YaHuWaH stated in Job 8:20 - Behold, YaHuWaH will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:
Things which you have purposefully committed it not a mistake is called a wrong, but there is maturity the Ruwach (Holy Spirit). Purposefully committing a wrong is sin and sin separates you from the love of YaHuWaH and without His love, YaHuWaH will not help you.
Ever wonder why your life is not working out, Hmmm...
He will come as a thief in the night - show me how work in progress apply here
Rev 21 - if you are caught when the thief comes in the night, your destination is very clear
Everyone, stop trying to live your way, because your way will not get you into Shamayim. It is a sure fire way to Hell and the Lake of Fire after the White Throne Judgement. If you say you love YaHuWaH, then you will seek after the truth and those things that pleases Him and not yourself.
