So Why in the World Would Anybody Say that Alms Giving Atones for Sin?

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

Sometimes we think that we have all the truth on a particular subject and then all of a sudden through scripture reading, scripture study and then discussing with other people who read and study the scriptures we find another piece to the puzzle that was there the whole time but we didn't know it existed. Then we have to rework our doctrine and see how and where the piece fits into what we're going to believe. Reworking our doctrine is not always a bad thing. However, we have to test what we believe, prove all things, hold fast of that which is good. Spiritual growth is a good thing. Growth doesn't always mean that you didn't have salvation before and now you do, but sometimes it can. You can be an unbelieving sinner and grow into a believing saint. Most of the time, however, after you grew it just shows the reality that we don't know everything. We don't learn everything all at once but we must keep growing by studying the word of Yahuwah.

Sometimes, new light and knowledge is too much to bear and knowing this, our heavenly Father is very patient, He's long suffering and knows exactly how and when to reveal more of His truth and light to us. For this we must remain prayerfully vigilant against falsehood, but open and receptive to His truth, as we advance in our walk with Him towards New Jerusalem.
