Wiping the slate clean of what exactly?
2 Cor 5:17 is clear, once we have accepted Christ we are made brand new. The old is dead. We can not serve 2 masters. It is either death or life, good or bad. This is what the scripture says not what I say.
The evidence for me is clear and it has withstood the test of time and any test thrown at it. But each person has to choose their own path. So I respect your right to do what you choose with your own free will. Take care brother.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
