  1. About your statement…”But in no way are you distant from God in your failure.” (after falling in love with someone other than your spouse or even believing that the Spirit somehow led you to that person)

    I agree with you so much of what you are saying. But after mentioning Romans 5:20, I would have followed that up with Romans 6:1. Romans 6:1 is an extremely important clarification Paul made to instruct the saints that their sin was not okay just because they are living under grace…hence, dealing with their temptation to continue in that sin and think they were not separated from God in any way. That is what repentance in Christ Jesus through His Blood and by His gift of grace is about. Though I agree that we are not under the penalties of the law for sins…such as a death penalty for adultery…still, if you were to commit adultery, even under grace, you absolutely ARE separate from God’s continued blessing of grace in your sin until you repent of that sin and accept the grace of Christ’s forgiveness which is accomplished by the efficacy of the blood of Jesus Christ. If you do not repent, then you remain under that dark cloud until you do. If not, then people would say, well, I am under grace and not the law, so therefore, there is no penalty if I continue in my sin. That is the potent point Paul was making in Romans 6:1.

    I believe you would have better served your readers by including 6:1 after 5:20. Just a suggestion.

    You have said some critically good things here.

    Your brother and servant in Christ,
    Angelle
