Romans 1:17 query
#7
Shlama Dave,

I think we do agree on the "faith is a gift" statement. The question is not whether it is the gift from God, but rather , does God still call the gift He gives ,His own , or does it become yours by reason of it being given to you ?
If I gave you a new car, is it my car, or yours ? And what kind of giver would I be if I insisted on calling it mine and driving it whenever I wanted to ?
God is not an "Indian giver", (excuse the ethnic reference, I have nothing against Native Americans, it is simply a familiar term that illustrates my point.) He will not claim for Himself what He freely gives to another; He is a gentleman, in my book, not a cad.
He truly gives what He gives. That does not mean I should or can take credit for the gift or anything I accomplish with it; far from it ! I want to glorify God for all of it, for He alone deserves the glory and honor.

2Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
Ro 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

As to the second point in Mark:


Mark 1:14 ?? (ASV) Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God,

The American Standard Version is a "standardized" text . How can you agree with it ?

Burktha w'shlama,


Dave
