So then what is the requirement
for me to have God's righteousness?
You have made it clear that
it is not works. Is there
then no requirement? Or is the
requirement faith? perfect
faith with nothing attached
purposely or unintentionally?
Is imperfect falliable faith
good enough? I guess it's a
stupid question because
if it's not then we are all
doomed because all that God
is gonna get from imperfect
falliable humans is imperfect
falliable faith. What do you think?
