Have you ever heard someone tell you “I can do all things through Christ except obey His commandments”? You might be surprised at how many people actually think this way.
When someone is struggling with a difficult situation, Christians are often quick to say things like “We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus”, or “nothing is impossible with God”, or “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
It’s also common to hear cliches such as “give it to God”, but when you ask them if they keep all of God’s commandments, they say, “nobody can keep all of those commandments”, or “its impossible for us to keep the Law”.
