Luke 10:16 "...;he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me." These are the words of Jesus. If we don't 'reject' Him, then we _______ Him. Although the term 'personal savior' may not be in the Bible, there are many people who believe Jesus is the Son of God. That doesn't mean they are saved. They have to ask Him into their hearts, and I think He becomes pretty personal at that point. Why the hang up on symatics? You are being petty and pointless!

Illness has a way of frying brain cells- 2 weeks+ with some sort of flu!

The name of the comedy is "Are you being served?

I do not watch it because it is not funny to me, but PBS promotes it heavily; they must have paid a heap to have broadcast rights

Lupe:

Thanks for the encouragement, bro.

Actually I was trying to use the 60ish slang term meaning for "reek", a synonym for "bad".

Unfortunately, old US slang, (or any of it) does not cross the Atlantic well, and that is why I started a blog thread on it, "How may we offend you"?

I took that from the title of the BBC so-called comedy, "How may we serve?"

jackt, I already provided the scriptures proving that Jesus Christ is our Personal Savior, but you refuse to accept them because of your unbelief. And on the contary I have not attacked you, instead your words are accusatory towards me. I merely provided you with the scriptures that you requested, and it's your free choice to either accept them or reject them.
---Eloy on 5/15/06


It must be a cultural difference, both the use of words and the sense of fairness.
---alan8869_of_UK on 5/15/06


Jack. Here is the Scriptural formula you asked for. John 1:12. Anyone who accepts Him has the right to be called a son.

contiue Isiah 28 11-12 Says with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to his people The church in the book of Act is the one he die for St John 10 and 1says if we try to come any other way we are thiefs and robber's
---Betty on 5/15/06


Elder. The name Jack is mentioned many times in the Bible. It is actually Jacobus. Jack is short for that. Every place in most translations that you see the name James mentioned just look at the Greek word and you will see it is Jacobus. There was no one really named James in the Bible.
---john on 5/15/06




Alan, you brougt to question Jacks, personal relationship with Christ. I believe you err By writing it, you let everyone know that his salvation is in questioned, in your opinion. As you know, God is the only one that knows the heart. Have you forgotten how I felt when Eloy continued to do that to me and how hurtful that was. I know you did not mean it to be that way, but it came out that way. We all disagree on behavior, teachings, gifts, but never salvation.
---Lupe2618 on 5/14/06


John T. let me first say that I find it a blessing to read what you put down on Scripture. Since you came on line I see that you are well taught in the Word of God. We need people like you to come on and challenge many of the false teachings that are going on in the body of Christ. I hope you will stay on line for a long time. I myself find no fault in what you wrote. The word "Reek" smells, is something many brothers say, In the subject of teachings, If it smells it must not be good.
---Lupe2618 on 5/14/06


Eloy while you are at your search trying to find the "terms" you used also try to find someone named Jack in the Bible.
---Elder on 5/14/06


I believe I apologized for your unintended offense in a previous post...
---John_T on 5/14/06


eloy:
We are not enemies, we have differences in OPINIONS.

You are a person, not an opinion. Attacking an opinion is NOT the same as attacking a person.

You need to:
1) provide objective, verifiable proof that the the objection is wrong, or
2) provide objective, verifiable (third party) proof that your statement is true.

Your saying something is fact does not make so. It is called debate and discussion because it involves looking at different things to ascertain truth.
---John_T on 5/14/06


11. If you read what John wrote in the end, he states, if someone find's it offensive, he apologize to him and others, and yet you still wanted to make a statement. I don't think there was a need for you to even have answered, yet you did. There is so many other blogs questions that you could help on, then to remind John that you are checking the dictionary for correction of words. And if he fails you will come down hard.

Alan, I don't believe that the word "reek" is very offensive to say to someone else. "If it smells there must something wrong with the interpretation." I have seen mean words that were said to others and you were no where to be found. What John has put down seems to be what everyone already knows to be true, Eloy's doctrines don't reconcile to Scripture. Another thing, why do you find it offensive when the statement was not for you?
---karen on 5/14/06


Jack, the phrases you are asking about express thoughts and ideas, concepts, and anyone who knows what they mean is not troubled by the fact that the words do not show up in scripture for the concepts surely do.

There is no reason to be confined to the words that appear in an translation of scriputre to express ourselves.
---Bruce5656 on 5/14/06


Jack ... looking at your exchange with
Eloy leaves me astounded that you interpret his comments as a personal attack.
Would you say that I am wrong to describe Jesus as my best friend, just because the Bible does not use those words?
And I do wonder just what relationship you do have with Jesus.
---alan8869_of_UK on 5/14/06


JohnT ... Maybe your dictionary is not the same as mine. Mine does not say "reek" means "absurd" or "impossible" (and I agree with you that Pope Pilate is an absurd idea)
My dictionary talks about "reek" as referring to a rather foul smell, and I do find that offensive, even when applied to views with which I do not agree.

Eloy, you have been asked to provide scriptural citations for "personal savior", "accept Christ," and such Evangelical buzz terms. This is a simple and reasonable request for those who subscribe to Sola Scriptura.

The fact that you have turned it into personal attack agaisnt me shows that not only have you not been able to find these phrases in the Bible, but you feel your faith threatened.
---Jack on 5/14/06


johnt, Am I become you enemy because I tell you the truth? If you disagree with what I write it does not change the fact that what I have written is the truth, it only means you disagree. However if you choose to dis and accuse the brothers, then that is the fruit which you will bear.
---Eloy on 5/14/06


Alan:

Some of the things that deserve the work, "reek" are "Pontiff(sic) Pilate" and defending a German word as being placed in the "original Biblical Hebrew texts AD 1250." That is by definition, an impossiblilty.

I do not believe I was offensive to accurately describe an absurd opinion; but I do draw the line at attacking a person.

Since you say my word was borderline offenseive, I apologize to you, and others likewise offended.
---John_T on 5/14/06


jack, If Jesus is not personal to you, nor your Savior, then what is he to you? Is he a stranger to you? Do you not partake of his communion with the saints? Do you not worship him, not pray to him, nor confide in him to help you live a righteous and holy life? What is Jesus Christ to you?
---Eloy on 5/14/06

jack, No I do not hate it when people who are against the gospel challenge the evangelists, such as myself, to reveal words in the Bible which were not in use thousands of years ago. The words "personal" was not used in scripture, but instead, "known" and "mine" and "my own" were. And if you would take the time to read the scriptures I cited below, you would see that the person Jesus Christ is our Personal Savior in whom we love, cherish, and obey.
---Eloy on 5/14/06


Jack, If someone tells me they have accepted Jesus as their Saviour, I am happy. To me that means the person knows Jesus died to pay the price for his sin. He knows it is a guift (Grace) of salvation that he receives and accepts by faith. Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8 It seems your time would be well spent building up believers, rather than finding fault with how they describe their salvation.
---Ulrika on 5/14/06


John T ... I too find Eloy's opinions are on occasion unusual, but I do feel that you border on the offensive when you say they "reek"
---alan8869_of_UK on 5/14/06


personal savior is not in the bible because he is in Me.

Jack:
Give it up on eloy.

He sometimes says good things, but other times, his opinions simply reek!

I NEVER saw him say, "I was wrong on that." nor will I ever. When I have pointed out absurdities, he becomes defensive, digs in his heels, and cuts you off, saying "Name, we have no fellowship."

Others noted his god-like demeanor, calling him on it. Nevertheless, he is always right in his own mind.

This is not to run down eloy, but to save you grief.
---John_T on 5/13/06


Eloy, please give book, chapter, and verse where Jesus is called "our personal savior."
---Jack on 5/13/06


BTW--I've been a born-again Christian foir over 40 years. Too often and too long I've seen people thinking that being able to recite the right phrases is the sign of faith.
---Jack on 5/13/06


Eloy, don't you just hate it when I point out that popular Evangelical shibboleths, such as "personal savior", "win for Christ," or "accept Christ" are nowhere in the Bible?

Faith in Jesus is what makes you a Christian, not the ability to spout the right buzz words and catch phrases.

Read These Insightful Articles About Bible Verses


jack, Jesus is our Personal Savior. Call on his Name: Joel 2:32; Zechariah 13:9; Romans 10:9-13. In the Seed Sower, the seed is the Word of God, and the soil is the heart. Luke 8:5,8,11,15; John 8:47. Our body is Gods temple, so the door in Revelation 3:20 is the door of our heart. Please read John 10:4,5,9,14; 14:20.
---Eloy on 5/13/06


"Calling upon the name of the Lord" is NOT the same thing as "accepting Christ."

As I thought, you cannot find the latter formula in scripture.

While you're at it, see if you can find "personal saviour" in the Bible, and give book, chapter, and verse.
---Jack on 5/13/06

Can someone please tell me where you can find the formulae "accept Christ" or "personal Savior" in the Bible?

Please give book, chapter, and verse in your answer.
