the Lord Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross forgives us of all sin. The Lord doesn’t see us as sinners any more. Who can accuse us now?
Question 2: It is said in the Bible, “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifies. Who is he that condemns?” (Rom 8:33–34). This proves that the Lord Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross forgives us of all sin. The Lord doesn’t see us as sinners any more. Who can accuse us now?
Answer: It’s written in the Bible, “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect?” Here, we must be very clear. Who, exactly, are members of God’s elect? Those frequent sinners, they who sell out the Lord and their friends, they who steal the offerings to God, fornicators, the timid, and the hypocritical Pharisees, are they God’s elect? If anyone that believes in God is part of God’s elect, then how do we explain what Revelation says, “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie”? Therefore, not all people that believe in God are part of God’s elect. Only those who really serve the Lord and love God, those that bear true witness to Him are part of God’s elect. For example, Abraham, Job, and Peter obeyed God and revered God. They had righteous deeds and bore good witnesses. What they did obtained God’s approval. No one could accuse them. When did God say that all the faithful were righteous? The majority of them often sin, resist God, and betray God. That is a fact. The Lord Jesus never said the majority of believers were righteous. Therefore, God’s elect refer to those who have righteous deeds and can follow God’s will.
