The Lord Jesus Christ is Strong

The Lord Jesus Christ is strong. While on the earth, Jesus resisted every temptation from the enemy. In Jesus, the debt we owed to Satan through sin is canceled, thereby setting us free from enslavement to the kingdom of darkness and welcoming us as citizens of the kingdom of light. Today, Jesus rules and rains as King of Kings and Lord of lords overall things. By being in Christ, we, too, can live by the power of the Holy Spirit, as Jesus did on the earth, honoring his kingdom and living in victory over our enemy.

  1. Why then do Christians still talk about sin if all sin has been eliminated by the execution of Jesus? How come that Christians are being driven out of Iraq and Syria if Jesus is master of this world as you claim?

    • Certainly good questions. The answer to both questions is derived from dismissing your assumption. Sin has not been eliminated and to think that the crucifixion of Christ accomplishes this belies a less than authoritative understanding of classical Christianity.
