If Jesus is not The Lord of your life, then He's Not really in your life at all. It takes The Holy Ghost in order to call Him Lord. 1st.Cor.12 v 3.

Absolutely. If only people could understand what true Salvation really is. A true believer is one who's highest goal is to glorify Christ. The saved has a heart knowledge of Christ. The saved are led by the Spirit of God.The saved hates sin and FIGHT to overcome it. The saved obeys Christ. The saved are those that SUFFERS for Christ. The saved are those who repent and keep on repenting. The saved are those who keeps the FAITH. Are you saved?

Depends on how you look at it. If a person says, 'Yes, I have excepted Jesus as my Savior', then they are a christian on their way to heaven. On the other hand, they aren't like Christ if they don't make Him Lord, not only Savior.

Jack, I think we have had discussions on this subject in other blogs previously. Refer to line six of the Apostles Creed.

He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:

That proves beyond any reasonable doubt that Christ is subservient to the God the Father and is an independent divine entity in the family of God.

Many people do not accept the concept of the Holy Trinity merely because they limit GOD's power.
Many think 'How is it possible that he (GOD) can be three entities at once'?

Consider this thought for a moment. If GOD created everything in existence (The massive Universe and everything in it). What other unimaginable things can he do! We as humans no nothing about the OVERWHELMING power of our GOD! Isn't he MAJESTIC!
I love you GOD!

Christ is either Lord of All or not at all. You decide.

** The object is to make Yahweh God the only Lord of your life. Both Christ and the Holy spirit are subordinate to God the Father. **

Are you saying that the Son and the Spirit are not fully God, or that Jesus is not YHVH made flesh?

If you are, you're an Arian, and not a real Christian.

(I.)Mima, I never heard of lordship salvation, But , I do know this, Unless Jesus Christ the Righteous is Lord of ones life, unless He is given [freedom and liberty] to direct ones path, [everything] is in vain. Without Jesus, I wouldn't have life, physically or spiritually....
---Mrs._Morgan on 1/30/07

(II.)Mima,...without my wonderful Jesus "the Righteous"(as I hear the Holy Spirit call Him),I wouldnt have holiness(would still be a sinner),without Jesus being Lord of my life, my heart,I wouldnt have [true]godly faith,godly wisdom,godly love,etc. that survives the FIRE of God's test. Anyone who is not being directed by the Good Shepherd(Jesus-The WORD),any one who hasn't truly made Him Lord of their life(their FIRST LOVE) is NOT any of His.(John 10:1-18). God Bless!

What do you mean by lordship salvation?

Matt.24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Matt.24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Matt.24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Could you elaborate, Mima? This is as hard to get hold of as "neat garbage" or other oxymoronof your choice.
---Jack on 1/30/07

I find Christians to be in various stages of development. We haven't all sold everything we have and given it to the poor have we? Or have we all strived to blood against sin all the time? And neither is there a person who can truthfully say that they have always put Christ first in everything all the time.

Unless Jesus Christ IS Lord of your life, you are NOT a Christian.
---Leslie on 1/30/07

The object is to make Yahweh God the only Lord of your life. Both Christ and the Holy spirit are subordinate to God the Father. Christ new his relationship to the Father and never tried to usurp the Fathers position and neither should we in dealing with the distinct members of the trinity.
---notlaw99 on 1/30/07

I don't think so Mima.If you are a Christian you are a follower of Christ,thus making Him your Lord and Savior.
Jesus is Lord!

No because the very name Christian refers to those who follow Christ and without the act of repentence and accepting Christ as Lord there is no salvation in any other way. When one does accept Christ then the only way to live a Christian life, avoiding temptation ,is through the name of Jesus. There is no prayer accepted by God except in the name of Jesus,praying to God through Jesus is the only way. All other attempts at salvation and prayers are useless,without solid Biblical foundation.
