(2).. I think the scriptures that I used are very much in context with this situation. You are this Minister "Pharisee" that considers himself better "or with out sin" than the publican "kathr4453". Eloy, if you humble your self from this pridefull attitude, maybe you'll go down to your house justified.
---Billy on 11/18/07

jhonny , You are obviously letting the Holy Spirit guide you, very good. --Mrs. Morgan.
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/31/06

Mnemonic for C.O.R.R.U.P.T.
C. Cannot follow law
O. Obligations ignored
R. Remorseless
R. Reckless
U. Underheandedness
P. Planning deficit
T. Temper

I have found the methods of disagreement quite creative. I've enjoyed reading the interactions back and forth.
For a small few their anger,
anti-fundamentalist/protestant anger is the fix, the truth plays second fiddle.
---jhonny on 8/31/06

jhonny, The problem with Most in the Christian World is that they actually have the attitude of brushing off the Holy Spirit, some don't do it on purpose, but some do. It is very dangerous to not allow oneself to be under subject to the Holy Ghost, God won't force this on us, we must be willing and yielding. --Mrs. Morgan
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/30/06

lee, you do not speak the truth.
---Eloy on 8/30/06

Mrs. Morgan I found this quite moving. Your quote: "..because they are rejecting the Spirit, and don't even have Him in their life in the first place, The Holy Spirit will eventually reject them, permanently! God help some of these folks, they are not fighting us, they are Fighting the Holy Spirit, the One that is leading God's True Children." end quote.
---jhonny on 8/29/06

(4) Since you are so spiritual, why don't you answer the questions that were put to you? 1. Can you regenerated yourself? 2. Does the faith to believe come from God or from you? 3. Can you bring yourself back to life when Scripture tells us the lost are dead spiritually? 4. Where did your repentance originate? Did you convict yourself? 5. "What is impossible for men, is possible with God" speaking of salvation. Is that statement true? This and many more were put to you, and you did not answer.
---lee_1 on 8/29/06

(3) Everyone is a sinner, in need of Christ. You might try to do the best you can as you say you can, but when you say it, it is you doing it, that is what you tells us. It is not even Christ in you that is helping you. Then you turn around and tell others that they are sinners and should not think in the flesh. If you say you are without sin, you are calling God a liar. That is right from Scripture but you also say that is false.
---lee_1 on 8/29/06

.billy, you are projecting, and you're thinking is not sound, for I bless my brothers, and I pray for those of you who are lost.

Emcee, (3.) True holiness has nothing to do with man, and Everything to do with God. Yes, God has always had a holy people , a set apart people, and that will never change. The only way that God is able to make a person Holy, is by them first Humbling themselves before Him, Obeying Him, some want to leave these two things out, but God said be not deceived, I am not mocked, whatsoever you sow you will also reap, this message is for everyone. --Mrs. Morgan
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/28/06

Emcee, (2.)The Word says that the greatest will be the least, and the least the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven this proves that One True Child of God, isn't any holier than another True Child of God, note the Word True. And yes, it is the Blood of Jesus that makes us Holy, nigh to God, what can wash away my sins? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus, ...This is All my Righteousness, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus, as the song goes! It called back to the Basic's Emcee. --Mrs. Morgan.
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/28/06

Emcee , (1.) The term holier than thou, implies self-righteousness. One holy Child of God holier than another, doesn't even make sense! God's True Children have only one kind of holiness, and that is God's Holiness, that's why they are called saints! They don't Walk in the Flesh, but the Spirit. There are Not Different levels of holiness, that's rediculous, please listen to what you are saying.
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/28/06

(3.)..... and he that is born of the flesh is flesh. Many on these blogs are holding on to the flesh,embracing it, they are not Living in the Spirit, because they are rejecting the Spirit, and don't even have Him in their life in the first place, The Holy Spirit will eventually reject them, permanently! God help some of these folks, they are not fighting us, they are Fighting the Holy Spirit, the One that is leading God's True Children. --Mrs. Morgan
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/28/06

(2.)Many people don't want to give up the Flesh!, they want to remain in the Flesh and yet be with God, No , it just Won't Work. Jesus said we are to take up our cross and follow Him, and many just don't want that, they don't want the Holiness, and Discipline of the Cross, therefore they really don't want Jesus. Jesus said that those are not even Worthy of Him! Jesus said , he that is born of Spirit is Spirit ....
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/28/06

Exzucuh, Welcome back Brother!Much Confusion on these blogs by many. I will be doing some investigative studing on the beginnings of major False Doctrine, brother, it will give me an idea of where many are coming from on these blogs, why they are so confused. I don't blame everything on False Doctrine though, Most people are just plain old rebelling against the Kingdom of God, and everything that the Kingdom of God stands for. God Bless You!

Mrs. Morgan, When have I ever said that walking in the Spirit "is" a do it yourself thing? I've never said such a thing, I have always said that it wasn't in man to know his own way, and he, DOES NOT have a free will. I think you owe me an appolagy. Eather way I still love you but, I think you and Eloy are about tit for tat on falsely accusing the brethren.

You still don't answer the questions put to you. God said about eternal life, "The things which are impossible with men, are possible with God." Now was He lying? Just answer that one question. I gave on another blog the story of the rich young ruler in Luke 18, I think you need to read it again. You seem to think that man can save himself as your statemets always state. You need to read Scripture and understand it too.

I hope that we all realize that it is a sin when we do good things in a wrong way.
---Amy9384 on 8/27/06

.billy, you do not speak for the saints: for you have called what God has sanctified and perfected, a liar, and also say that you have done this from love. Do not be deceived, The righteous are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. And I John 2:1,2 reads: "My little children,...I write to you, that you all not sin. And if somebody sin, a Counsellor we have with the Father, righteous Jesus Christ; and he the appeasement for sin, is yours: and of not for ours only, but even for all the world."
---Eloy on 8/27/06

Mrs Morgan - Come off it, please. If you take the time to look, nobody else does as much emphasis on words as you do. Please stop. I am sure we can all read perfectly alright without all that stuff you put there. A little is ok, but not all that. Thank you.

(4.)God said be not deceive He is Not Mocked. People Can not Embrace sin and His Truth at the same time! Saying that one is holy because Jesus is holy, and then saying Jesus is with me when I sin and disobey is Blashphemy. False Doctrine is deadly. --Mrs. Morgan

(3.)People-that claim they are Righteous in Christ Jesus,Even while they-have unrepented sin in their-life are deceived, they only have a false-form of godliness, they're naked in the eyes of God! They are denying the power thereof that Overcoming Power that is provided in the Blood of Jesus, they hide behind the phrase "I am Righteous in Christ Jesus, Even When I am sinning", that phrase really digusts God!

II. No one does. It is God who saves you, and nothing you do is deserving of your salvation. None of your being deserves salvation. You have nothing to offer in the case of grace. It is all of God. Anything you contribute, to salvation is only becuase God has given you the Holy Spirit in order to respond to God or else you would never respond. Without the Spirit you are nothing but a lost soul.
---karen on 8/27/06

God's people are not confused about the essentials of the Christian faith. You stated that "our security is in abiding, and trusting in God's word, "the truth" I believe that is what is Justification by faith is which you refuse at all. abiding comes after you have been saved. Not to earn it but because of your love for God and have faith in Him. Not in his blood but in His death on the Cross for you. His sacrafice. Anything else is false. You do not earn your way in,

Billy,(2.)But some don't have Faith in the Blood of Jesus like they should! They don't believe that His Divine Blood is Powerful enought to keep them free, so their mind is made up, and well it's plain to see that they are going to fail with that mind set, they doubt the overcoming power in the Divine Blood of Jesus. The Blood gives us overcoming Power if we Yield to It. The Word States this in Revelation.
---Mrs._Morgan on 8/26/06

(1.)Billy , As long as we Walk in the Spirit, and not the Flesh, Sinning won't happen, we walk in the Spirit by Abiding in God Word,His Truth, the moment we Stop Abiding in His Truth, stop Walking in the Spirit, sin is at the door, not knocking, pounding! If a person opens that door and sins, they MUST honestly repent. But the Truth is that we DON'T have to keep falling back in the flesh,there is a Solution,We are to Yield to the Power in the Divine Blood of Jesus, I can't stress that enough.

II.)On the Other hand ,People cant just live any old kind of way, and STILL Claim GOD is WITH THEM, that is called BLASPHEMY.People Can NOT be Holy WITHOUT God Almighty.

No Noah, Moses,Enoch, Elijah, John,Etc. these people YIELDED TO GOD, Walked in the Spirit, and TRULY was Holy, not by Their own Power...

---Billy on 8/26/06

Eloy, the scriptures that you quote should be translated that we don't practice sin anymore. As long as we are in the flesh, we are sin. Because flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. you are the one that says that your without sin, which according to scripture makes you a lier. I say this with love! But heres another scripture that is speaking to those that are born of God.

.billy, you're misquoting scriptures out of context, and so do not know the truth. "Whoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." I John 3:9. Thus, can a real born-again Christian sin? No, only after they reject their Salvation can they sin, but if they do this then they are no longer a redeemed Christian, but instead they have become a lost sinner separated from God, just as a spouse can betray and divorce their beloved.

Paul also says, " HE who has begun a good work in you will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ". That's the rest I'm referring to. Resting in the arms of the one who saved me and is sanctifying me by faith in Him.
