  1. This prophet states:
    Although He wants His people to sin less, He does not tell them they have to be perfect.  No where in the Bible is that found.

    But what about Matthew 5:48
    You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect

    A direct contradiction.
    Of course our perfection can never come from our own efforts, only by the work of the Holy Spirit in us. But this prophet has made a statement about Scripture that is simply not true.

    • 1) The Matthew 5 verse says perfection – that’s correct. However, if you look at it in Greek – it talks about being “full of” or complete. So the verse is talking about being full of love – especially when you look at the context of the verse.

      2) trying to obtain perfection is legalism.

      3) Jesus views us as perfect because of his blood

      4) striving to be perfect will cause people to be sin-conscious not Holy Spirit conscious.

      5) the Bible says in Ephesians 4:15 that we are “to grow up into him”. It’s about growing with him – not being perfect for him. Our righteousness is like filthy rags – says Romans. Jesus isn’t worried about us being perfect. But he wants us to grow up in him and in love.

  2. Hi. Bible translators do use the word “PERFECT”. The definitions of the original words, translated “perfect”, also include “perfect”. How do you define ***”PERFECT”?

    Gen 17:1
    Lk 6:40
    Jn 5:48
    Jn 17:23

    Online Etymology

    ***perfect (adj.)
    early 15c. classical correction of Middle English parfit “flawless, ideal” (c. 1300), also “complete, full, finished, lacking in no way” (late 14c.), from Old French parfit “finished, completed, ready” (11c.), from Latin perfectus “completed, excellent, accomplished, exquisite,” past participle of perficere “accomplish, finish, complete,” from per “completely” (see per) + combining form of facere “to make, to do” (from PIE root *dhe- “to set, put”).

    • because of the blood, Jesus looks at his people as perfect or blameless.

      Also, as people live, they should not try hard to live sin-free. This causes their mind to be sin-conscious instead of Holy Spirit conscious.
