Righteousness vs Salvation | Being Right with God, and being Saved are not the same...

Righteousness vs Salvation


10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10 | King James Bible

A deeper look (here):
dikaiosynē | 1343 [e]δικαιοσύνῃ | righteousnessShort Definition: justice, justness, righteousness
My Definition: Be Right With God 
sōtērian | 4991 [e]σωτηρίαν | salvation
Short Definition: salvation, welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety.
My Definition: Whole, Restored to Pre-Fall State

Right vs Saved

Being Right with God, and being Saved are two different but inter-dependent concepts.

  • Right-ness is the legal/positional state of being.
  • Saved is the outward manifestation(s) of that right state of being.


I am right with God by believing in and on the finished work of His Son, Jesus Christ. That is it. That is all there is to it. There is no work left. If I believe, I am made Right-With-God (righteous)

I experience the effects of that Rightness by opening my mouth, and speaking the things in my heart.

So once I believe that Jesus paid the forever price to my sin, I open my mouth and tell him. I am saved from sin.


Salvation's Manifestations

However, Salvation is more than just freedom from sin. It is healing, wholeness, provision, sound mind, a total restoration of the Pre-Fall State.

Why am I not experiencing that? Because we still live in the fallen world. The final and total restoration will come at the end of all things. But we can experience degrees of this state now, here, on this earth.

And the degrees will be dependent on our believing and saying.


Mind vs Heart

I cannot get there on my own. For all the good Christian Apologetics has done to strengthen believers, it cannot change the heart of an unbeliever.

It is possible that, through the course of tearing down mental walls, truth can reach the heart through this reasoned approach, but it cannot change the heart on its own.

So I can know (in my mind) that the bible says healing belongs to me as His child, but still struggle with my heart.

Because faith doesn't come by reading and passing a test.

Convinced

Once I believe at the heart level, I open my mouth and effortlessly say what is on my heart (Luke 6:45).

This is part of the reason more healings and miracles occur over-seas than in the USA. We are so full of "teaching", our mind is so full of theological positions (some God's some just Man's), that our heart is cut off from the process much of the time.

As we discussed the other day (here), Faith comes by hearing the voice of God.

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.English Standard Version |Romans 10:17

So the trick is to convince the heart... that can only come from spending time with the One...

You cannot hear Him speak to your heart, if you are not listening...

Spend some time listening today.

Darrell's Reading List


Here are some books I've been reading lately:

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

emClient Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review

Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review. I don't want to spend a ton of time on this, but I think it's worth giving my hand to this OVER BLOGGED topic because MOST of the other blogs were helpful to a point, but they were the SAME blog post, almost verbatim, on different websites. Here is my journey. The other day I get fed up trying to boot Outlook and it took awhile to boot up, because my personal computer only has very little RAM and I haven't bothered installing more, and I'm just over it.

I also wanted an email/calendar app for the android phone, which I may have to write about too because I figured that out for now. In case you interested the short of that is that I am using the basic Gmail app for email and Outlook app for that email, and using aCalendar which actually just overlays on top of Google Calendar. So you are really using Google Calendar but aCalendar is a MUCH prettier interface! I was trying to use Outlook calendar but on the Android but they seem det…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
