CANON 1. If anyone denies that it is the whole man, that is, both body and soul, that was "changed for the worse" through the offense of Adam's sin, but believes that the freedom of the soul remains unimpaired and that only the body is subject to corruption, he is deceived by the error of Pelagius and contradicts the scripture which says, "The soul that sins shall die" (Ezek. 18:20); and, "Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey?" (Rom. 6:12-16); and, "For whatever overcomes a man, to that he is enslaved" (2 Pet. 2:19).

That deception is the belief that we can have a direct conversation with God. The belief that God will literally speak words to us if we will only "still our minds", "empty our thoughts" and listen for his "still small voice" to "speak to us".
Did God communicated directly to people? Yes, to the Prophets and Apostles. You are not one of them.
Nowhere in the Bible does God state that He will communicate to us in this way. This is a deception to encourage us to listen to another...

Some may even say, "Yes, that was horrible. But other people have died horrible deaths too."
If we only think of the physical, we miss the true magnitude of the sacrifice.
Now, think about what happened immediately after His death. His Spirit had to bear the full weight of God's righteous judgment and wrath. Not for His sins, for He was righteous and had never sinned, but for everyone who had believed and would believe. Every single sin no matter how small or how incredibly horrible, was imputed onto His Spirit.
Think of a cute, soft baby lamb. A cuddly white lamb, without stain or blemish. A perfect lamb.
That was Jesus Christ.
Think about how wretched I am and you are and the thousands of people who have not glorified or loved God every minute of their lives. That is MASSIVE and WAY, WAY, WAY, more painful than the physical suffering He endured.
That, is the true price Jesus Christ paid on the cross.

"Dr. Michael Petraglia of the University of Oxford led an investigation into an ancient population site in India that had been buried under volcanic debris. Beneath the ash, he discovered stone tools. A university press release related that “according to the team a potentially ground-breaking implication of the new work is that the species responsible for making the stone tools in India was Homo sapiens.”1 This finding contradicts the evolutionary molecular clock date of mankind’s presence in India by “about 15,000 years.” But this is to be expected, since different molecules “tick” at different rates, and thus make poor clocks."
