I definitely don’t agree with Michael Brown on ‘Christian’ Zionism*, and he’s been too loose on salvation. But this is mostly good, after he gets going. My first comment below corrects one thing he said.

Michael Brown starts this statement by quoting Romans 6:1-2:

“‘What shall we say then, SHALL WE GO ON SINNING so that grace may increase? BY NO MEANS! We died to sin. HOW CAN WE LIVE IN IT ANY LONGER?’

OH! THIS IS A SPIRITUAL REALITY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A SLAVE TO SIN. In Jesus, you don’t have to be a slave to sin. It’s a lie. It’s a lie that your mind is telling you. It’s a lie that church tradition has told you. It’s a lie that the world tells you. It’s a lie that the Devil himself tells you. In Jesus, you know longer have to be a slave to sin.”

I commented on X (Twitter):

“No condemnation” only happens when we’re ACTUALLY “IN Christ Jesus, walking not according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”

Then there is no fear of judgment. Many falsely blame condemnation on the Devil, when it’s the Holy Spirit warning us to repent & reconcile.

Romans-7 excuse BUSTED:
5 WHEN WE WERE in the flesh, the sinful passions… through THE LAW worked… to bring… death. 6 But NOW WE HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED FROM THE LAW… died to that in which we WERE HELD; so that we serve in NEWNESS OF THE SPIRIT, and NOT in OLDNESS of the LETTER.

We MUST live in Paul’s 2nd Galatians-5 list:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is *love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,* 23 *gentleness, and self-control.* … 24 *THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST* HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with its passions and LUSTS.

We never have to sin:
“No TEMPTATION has taken you except what is common to man. GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE WHAT YOU ARE ABLE, but will WITH THE TEMPTATION also MAKE THE WAY OF ESCAPE, that you may be ABLE TO ENDURE it.” – 1 Cor. 10:13
