We are saved by believing in Christ as our Saviour. The law was given to show us that we are sinners and in need of a Saviour. Ephesians 2:7-9 (King James Version)

7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
---Leon_Maiolo on 4/18/11


Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Repentance: a change of mind and purpose and life to which remission of sin is promised. A turning away from sin to God thruogh the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
---Danosaur on 5/26/08


Its not by what we do to be saved, its by HIS grace. HE came to die to do away with sin so you could have LIFE.(salvation)
We love HIM because HE first loved us.
Perfect love produces perfect obedience.All by HIS grace.
Shall man save himself??
---duane on 5/26/08


A person gets saved through conviction from Christ. A person can't get saved anytime they want. A person can ask God to save them all they want but if not under conviction, they can't be saved nor can they be forgiven. Many people come to the alter thinking their under conviction but they are just going through the emotions. They hear a song about Momma dieing and go to alter then the next day they go back to their old lifestyle. Without conviction, their is no forgiveness from Christ.

"You folks are not preaching good news but servant hood and you'd better stop because a servant can be fired.
---Pharisee on 5/23/08"
Do you have a problem with servant hood? We have one Lord, Jesus. Are we Lords ourselves removed from servitude? Well, what did the Lord do and what did the Lord taught in regards to servitude?

Luke 22:25: "And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. 26: But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. 27: For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth."

John 13:12: "So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13: Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well, for so I am. 14: If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15: For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."
---Nana on 5/24/08


4)
Pharisee, one thing you said that is very true is that "a servant can be fired". Proof textual Scripture is in Matthew 24:44_51. What you do not accept is that we are all and are to be servants, one to another.
---Nana on 5/24/08


There is no work we do to be our Father's children.

The Bible even speaks about God disciplining his children and he NEVER disowns those who he has saved.

We receive discipline now so that we will not receive condemnation later.

You folks are not preaching good news but servant hood and you'd better stop because a servant can be fired.
---Pharisee on 5/23/08




Helen; God gives everyone a small measure of faith. A person must believe upon God that he is real before they can get saved. How do they believe, by God convicting them, dealing with their heart, then their faith comes out, then they realize God is there. Were you convicted of your sins, before you came to the Lord? If not, you are truely not one of his.
---Rebecca_D on 1/4/07


Rebeca, they are convicted of their sins after they are brought to life. Not before. If they were convicted before and believe before been then what Jesus taught is false. He said they didn't believe, why? because they were not His sheep. A person cannot believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior unless he is one of the sheep. He has to be reborn in order to see Christ, hear Christ, and respond to Christ. When God Word comes to him, God through the power of the Holy Spirit brings him to life,
---lisa on 12/28/06


Helen; I understand that you use a different bible, but using different bibles confuses alot of people. Lisa; how can a person get saved if not convicted of their sins? THEY CAN'T. When a person is convicted of their sins, they ask God to forgive them, (not all)and then and only then will they be born again. Lisa, you misunderstood what I said, God has to convict a person before they can ask for forgiveness, if no conviction, then no forgiveness.
---Rebecca_D on 12/27/06


Augusta, Merry Christmas first of all. Second, what I stated to Rebeca is very simple indeed. Not hard to really figure out. A person dead Spiritually to the things of God cannot make a decision for God unless he is born again first. He believes because he is born again, he doesn't believe to be born again. If he believed first, he would be a believer before he becomes a child of God. I will set up what Jesus said to the unbelieving Jews in John 10:22, now these words are right from Christ.
---lisa on 12/25/06


2. Jesus speaking at the Feast of Dedication and while walking in the temple He was surrounded by unbelieving Jews. "How long do you keep us in doubt? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." verse 25, Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me." Here Jesus tells them that He has done a lot of works to show who He is and they still do not believe. And here is the reason they don't believe,
---lisa on 12/25/06


3. "But you do not believe, "because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you." Do you understand what Jesus is saying? He is saying that in order for them to be believers they have to belong to Him. Otherwise they cannot believe. Only His sheep believe. The lost are not His sheep and are unable to believe. In order for them to believe they have to be born again of the Spirit. Jesus goes on to give the reason, My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

4. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never parish. Now this passage coming from Christ, teaches that the unbelievers don't believe because they are not His sheep. They have to be His sheep first in order to believe, It teaches that the one's that are His sheep, they hear His voice and follow Him. It teaches that those sheep that believe, and hear His voice, have eternal life. It teaches that eternal means eternal because no one shall ever parish.

Mark 2:17: "When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are
whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came
not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

Who were those being called to "repent"?

Matthew 10:6: "But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
Matthew 10:7: "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven

lost sheep of the house of Israel."

Jeremiah 50:6: "My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have
caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains:
they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace."
How lost were they? Quite lost because when John said: "Bring forth
therefore fruits worthy of repentance" they answered: "What shall we
do then?" John did tell them a thing or two to DO.

Matthew 11:20: "Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his
mighty works were done, because they repented not:" Makes me think
again about Lisa's statement: "When God calls, things happen." I do not
believe Man is incapable of making a decision for Christ while lost for
Christ himself said "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
---Nana on 12/26/06


#5
From the beginning of time Man knows what is Good and what is Evil and
so much so that all his evil he does under the cover of darkness because
he knows that his deeds should not be seen (Genesis 3:9-11). Some Men
come to Christ through beholding "mighty works". Some get won over by
unfeigned Christian love and forgiveness. Some, as Paul says:
Romans 10:17: "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
---Nana on 12/26/06


Mima - Salvation, repentance and change happen all in one when one becomes born-again. One is immediately changed into a new creation in Christ, and repentance takes place along with salvation. Those things cannot be separated.
---Helen_5378 on 12/25/06


Again let me say that I like Lisa's answers to this question. I certainly believe that salvation itself is first and then comes repentance and change.

*No Rebeca, how can a person be convicted of his sins and repent before he is born again?*

We can't receive the Holy Spirit unless we first repent..

Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (acts 2:38)

And Paul wrote: For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation. (2 Co. 7:10)

Hope you have a blessed Christmas, Lisa.
---augusta on 12/25/06


No Rebeca, how can a person be convicted of his sins and repent before he is born again? If he is not born again, he is lost, and enslave to sin and spiritually dead. He cannot make any decisions for Christ while lost. He cannot be a believer before he is reborn. He believes because he is saved, not before he is. There is no way in heaven or earth that anyone lost can repent before been born again of the Spirit. He has to have a new nature, a new disposition in order to respond to Christ.
---lisa on 12/24/06


2. When God calls you, you do become alive to God, as Lazuras was when Christ called him. He was dead and could not have faith. He could not speak and be convicted. He was dead. Christ called him and he responded to the call. When God calls, things happen. He called creation and it happened. If a person could be convicted and repented before regeneration, he would not need regeneration to enter the kingdom of God. That would mean that all the lost people can enter heaven without been reborn.
---lisa on 12/24/06


3. When a person hears the word and that word comes with power, that person will come to life to the things of God. The Holy Spirit gives life, and after, gives you the faith to believe. You cannot believe before you are reborn. It is not possible for a lost person to believe before he is born again. Salvation comes from hearing the word of God, it brings life to the lost dead soul. He is made able to answer to God.

.pharisee, As a Bible translator I am aware of the common error that translators have made with misdefinition of words, and "believe" is one of them, as I have stated. "pisteyo" or "pistos", commonly translated believe, can be synonymous with "peitho", as in Acts 28:24. "peitho" like "pisteyo" is commonly translated obey, believe, trust, as in Acts 5:36,37,40; 28:24; Matthew 27:43; Galatians 5:7; Hebrews 13:17.

Rebecca D - The Bible I use does say "HAVE BEEN". I use the NKJV. Not good to argue over trivial words.
---Helen_5378 on 12/24/06


G4100
πιστεύω
pisteuō
pist-yoo'-o
From G4102; have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing), that is, credit; by implication to entrust (especially ones spiritual well being to Christ): - believe (-r), commit (to trust), put in trust with.

This is the only word used by the gospel writers rendered "believe" (KJV). The words (Peitho G3982/Pistis G4102-root) are what you describe, yet the writers use the less emphatic.
---Pharisee on 12/24/06


A person must be convicted of their sins before they can be born again. then they must ask for forgiveness, if their is no convicting and no confessing then there is no forgiveness. JaeR; I don't agree with you at all. Helen Eph 2:8 doesn't say You HAVE BEEN saved through faith it says For by grace ARE YE saved through faith. For all regarding faith and works James 2:14-40. Leslie; I know you mean well but just speaking those words won't make a person born again. Where is the conviction?

Faith is not a passive thought, but an Action word, for by Works faith is made perfect; and without Works faith is dead. Many times in scripture Believe is defined Obey. For even the devil "believes" in Christ, but his belief does not save him. "...that all in who obey him be not abandoned, but have life eternal. The obedient to him is not judged; but the not obeying already has been judged, that not obedient to the Name of the single-sired Son of God." John 3:16,18.

"will render to each one according to his deeds": eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness--indignation and wrath. (Ro 2:6-8)

FAITH, without faith not only does no one please God, nobody wants to.

"Faith without good works is dead.

The quote is from James.
We need to keep in mind the parable of the sower. The seed that fell on the good ground didn't produce the same crop every time.

If someone changes some things in their life because of their faith they have worked for God. God sees that, we don't, all we pick up on is the things not yet changed and judge thereby, but God looks upon the heart and desires to save, you need to understand that.

Eloy, what you are promoting is works to get salvation. That is the same the false teachers in Galatians were doing. I know you have read Scripture but you have not understood it yet. The Judiaizers, pretended to be true Christians. yet their doctrine, because it claimed allegiance to Christ, was opposed to traditional Judaism, and becuase it demanded circumcision and obedience to the Mosaic Law as prerequisites for salvation, was oppose to Christianity. Christians are free from the law

2. as a means of salvation, from external ceremonial regulations as a way of living, and from the curse for disobedience to the law-a curse that Christ bore for all believers, see verse 3:13, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having becomes a curse for us" Now you answered the SDA's that we are not under the law anymore but in Grace, then you turn around and tell the believer he is under the curse of the Law. A contradiction.

3. In your perfection you are unable to see how you fail in interpreting any passage. You did the same with the answer that a true Christian is pure. Then you turn around and say you don't believe in OSAS because they fail. If he is pure and has eternal life as you do, how can he fail and lose salvation. Another contradiction. What you will have to do is to admit that you are not perfect after all, which will be hard for you, but sometimes you have to eat humble pie in order to get it right.

A son is accepted because of his relationship. A servant tries to be accepted because of his workmanship. If the law can save anyone we don't need Jesus at all.

The Joy and freedom of walking with God is lost when we can't be sure of our position with him, and our position is plainly given; we are seated at the right hand of God with Christ.

Pharisee,

A little boy brings a flower for his mommy.
Nobody taught him to do that but he brought
it and gave it to her nonetheless. Now, I
ask you, Will his mommy give him in return
a pile of "filthy rags"?

Isaiah 64:5: "Thou meetest him that rejoiceth
and worketh righteousness, those that remember
thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for
we have sinned: in those is continuance, and
we shall be saved."

What that means to you? To me it means that if
I have dirty laundry "filthy rags", I must wash
them in righteusness, love, mercy. It means that
I must strive to ensure that there be "continuance"
in the ways of God. To learn and to teach and to
much love.
