Jesus-colored Glasses

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).

It isn't that I don't deserve condemnation, it is just that Jesus didn't and He paid the debt I owed to God for my sin with His death. Now, God looks at me through Jesus-colored glasses and my eternal home is assured.

I love the title of your post! Jesus-colored glasses is such a great way to explain justification.

Thanks, I first used that years ago when I was teaching Children's Church and it has always worked well.

Our old pastor coined them as "SON glasses".

Bubalita,
Wow. I have been to your blog and you really are digging deep for answers. In your most recent post, I do have some comments to make, but I want to give it some thought and do some study on my own first. If you don't mind, I will be sharing your blog with others as well. There are some men who I have a great deal of respect for who would be a help to you in your quest.

One thing I will say now is it is possible to explain anything away if you are motivated and have reasoning abilities, but the anti-Christian arguments you have posted on your blog cannot sway me because I know the Christ they are denying personally.

In the meantime I am praying that the Lord will lead you into His truth.
