Put On Those Filthy Rags!

Put On Those Filthy Rags!

Just because "all our righteousness is as filthy rags"
- doesn't mean we shouldn't be wearing them

Sure, 100%, it isn't any holiness of our own that will get us into Heaven
- but we are still commanded to be holy

Sure, it says that all over the place, but none of it matters since "faith?"

The church today sees Paul's message as clear and easy to understand
- and sees Peter/James/John as harder to understand, needing more care...

But Peter says the opposite, that Paul's words are the ones hard to understand
- and Peter says that unstable people will wrest those words to their own detriment

Further, Peter expresses the sum of "salvation by faith not of works" just a tiny bit differently..
- saying that "the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation"
- which is really the same exact thing, but makes it clear....
- no matter all this grace, He is just "tolerating" us in our failures

And it seems to me, to please Him, we should put on some filthy rags!
