To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Brethren, The only ones going to hell are those who are still "Dead in sin".

When viewing others, we cannot always recognize whether in the body of Christ or out of the body, only God Knows : but one thing we do know is that God's Grace is Sufficient to keep us Saved once we are Dead to sin in Christ, despite any buffeting thorns given us. 2Cor.10:7, & 12:3-9

There's a difference between being Dead to sin & no longer living therein but cursing do to a thorn still in your flesh, and still being Dead in the sinful lasciviousness of cursing.

The bible said if all truth were to be known there would be no peace!

Sorry! (accusers) but your accusers are kettles cussing pots! Were are All by nature black( sinners). Trying to establish Bible truths is not easy, it's a shame that everyone cannot learn in a humble fashion.

REASON together( Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth) and at least show a better way of responding, other than the way some do by gloating that they are correct and others liars. The Word is a blessing and misused by those who fight with it calling others names, that I just don't get!!!!

In the right context it shows correctness in the wrong hands it shows ignorance.
---Carla on 2/16/10


I am not a teacher or pastor. I am a servant of God who is on line to give the Truth. If anyone does not believe and wants to question it its their choice. I have been corrected by some and I have learned from many. There is many good and wise writers on line who give great lessons on subjects, and then there is those who are on line to condemn those who do. Only a spirit of the anti-christ will make a person do that. It has been happening since the beginning of the Church. They oppose the speakers of God's Word but are goats wearing sheep's clothing. They are imitators "He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now" Yet "He who love his brother abides in the light,"
---MarkV. on 2/14/10


Exzucuh, as I said before you do not like anyone questioning what you say. That is exactly what a false teacher would do with his class of students. He would preach and say, no one question me, all that I say is truth, and people would have to believe it.
---MarkV. on 2/8/10

MarkV, you do exactly the same thing here on line.

Have you ever once said, "Gee, I might be wrong?

Just look at all the ugly snipes you spews out to those who question you!
You know MarkV, sometimes God places someone in our way to be a mirror of what we are. Yet we're to busy pointing fingers at the other, failing to see our own behavior.

Pride NEVER see's itself for what it is!

Exzucuh, as I said before you do not like anyone questioning what you say. That is exactly what a false teacher would do with his class of students. He would preach and say, no one question me, all that I say is truth, and people would have to believe it. Sort of like the RCC did for years. You have the Truth and no one can question it. No Exzucuh, when you make a false statement someone will answer I am sure. If no one else does I will. You can answer any comments I make. I will listen to what you have to say, check it with Scripture and if I am wrong I will say I was wrong. I have done that before. What you need is to study books to help you interpret correctly.
---MarkV. on 2/8/10


It is is not my fault Markv that you and your twin are spiritual dyslexic. And you love to argue over things you know nothing about and I have wasted time on you two and will not any more because this is all you are about is confrontation and wasting space.
---exzucuh on 2/8/10


Exzucuh, you are a good guy and you might have very good intentions when you try to explain a topic and then give passages that say nothing of what you are talking about. You read more into a passage and come out with different meanings then what God wanted to convey in that passage. Good intentions does not help someone if what you give is wrong. You get upset because Alan and I question what you say. You want others to competely agree and not question you at all. God's Word is very important. And we should make every effort to get it right. Calling us names will not help you get it right. Your heart has to be right with God.
---MarkV. on 2/8/10


Exzucuh, you gave Titus 1:16 and you call those believers who were saved and lost salvation, The passage nowhere mention salvation and losing it,
"To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure" but even their mind and conscience are defiled' They profess to know God but in works they deny Him,"
These people were defiled and professing to know God, it does not say they were saved and later lost salvation. And you say I'm unwilling to learn, when it is you who is in error who should know before you post false things on your website, for you will lead them wrong. Not even the interpretation of a few passages could you get right.
---MarkV. on 2/7/10


---alan8566_of_uk on 2/7/10 You and Mark are twins pete and repete
---exzucuh on 2/7/10




MarkV ... I'm not surprised!

He spend two and a half blogs dodging the challenge to his claim that the Bible says that drunkenness is synonymous with alcoholism. He never came up with one passage.
---alan8566_of_uk on 2/7/10


---MarkV. on 2/7/10 No I will not, If you have not read and understand what has been given to you by now, it is because you
are unwilling to learn. You do not have a teachable spirit but a rebellious spirit and a stiff neck.

Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God, but in ----works--- they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every ---good work--- "reprobate".

As you see here those who refuse to have good works are denying God and prove they are reprobate by their disobedience.
---exzucuh on 2/7/10


Exzucuh, I have been reading many of your blogs and have not seen one passage that states someone was reborn, saved, and sealed and later lost his salvation. You said you provide many, but I have not come accross one. Can you provide them again? Maybe I have missed some.
---MarkV. on 2/7/10


I Corinthians was written to the body of believers at Corinth. Chapter 11 was about partaking of the Lords Supper. The lost were not allowed to take of it. Christians who were in sin, like the man in Ch5, were warned not to take of it. The result of someone in sin doing so is in Ch 11:30.
"For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
There is nothing in Ch-11 about a Saved person losing their Salvation
---Elder on 2/6/10


---Elder on 1/26/10 The Bible is full of examples of people who have lost their salvation. I won't give any scriptures because I have already proved it by scriptures, you people are held accountable because in the last two years I have given you the word of God and you have rejected it. And judgement begins in the house of the Lord.
---exzucuh on 1/26/10

Thats strange you were given 1 Cor 11

Yet you also rejected it and what made it worse replaced scripture critising scripture with scripture and with your own opinion!!!!!


Not strange amazing you call people out like that!

---Donna66 on 2/5/10 What I explained is following rules it is obeying the gospel those that use the gospel to find loopholes so they can continue to fail will never grow in Christ.
They will eventually find themselves reprobates. God calls us Son's and daughters as long as we endure his teaching/chastisement.
But rebellion and lack of growth the bible says makes us bastards.

Strongaxe, great words of wisdom you gave. You, Tommy and Donna66, makes a lot of sense.
---MarkV. on 2/5/10


tommy7376:

Yes. This is why we must be constantly willing to have our own beliefs challenged, and be open to new truth that may contradict things we hol dear, in case they are shown to be in error. I am sure most Christians (in fact, most people of most religious) believe many things, not because they are actually true, but because they were told they were true by others. Paul praises the Bereans because they "searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so" (Acts 17:10-11), rather than just taking his (or anyone else's) word.

I don't say we should be gullible, carried by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14), but all truth is subject to scrutiny. It can withstand it. Only lies hide from the light of day.
---StrongAxe on 2/1/10


---tommy7376 on 2/1/10 You have a true heart to check yourself, this is truly what watching and praying is all about. True repentance is accepting the fact that there could be some flaw in what we believe and how we are living by God's word. To seek with all your heart the kingdom, taking it by violent action of the Spirit. This is true faith by works and walking in the Spirit. In this process we do not fulfill the lust of our flesh because we are continually drawing closer to Jesus and getting more of the Spirit of God. And while we are living this way even if we fail, God will pick us up and quickly and forgive us because we are learning by faith, just like a little child growing and learning.

strongaxe, You are absolutely correct, in that MANY who think they are saved will be sorely surprised when they find themselves standing at the Great White Throne and hear Jesus say to them "depart from Me, I never knew you." This also gives me cause to seek and search for continual assurance that I am indeed a true believer and not one deceived.
---tommy7376 on 2/1/10


Lawrence-- Demas might have returned to the apostle ...John Mark did!

Act 15:37-39 And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.
But Paul thought not good to take him with them, WHO DEPARTED FROM THEM AT PAMPHYLIA, AND WENT NOT WITH THEM TO THE WORK.
And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus.

But later, in 2Ti 4:11, Paul had a change of heart saying, "Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry".

Paul did not seem to question John Mark's salvation as he still deemed him "profitable... for the
ministry"
---Donna66 on 1/29/10


Donna
Apostle Paul was on The Missionary from The Lord & Demas was with him. Having to love this present world is here, 1st. John 2 v's 15-16. I hope Demas repented, seen that what he done was wrong & he went back to do God's Work. But only he & God knows.

-- StrongAxe & Tommy :

Brethren, Amen ~ You've both shared in your own words the same Truth !!

Through Faith in Christ we Truth in God's Grace which is Sufficient to keeping us unto Salvation, but the Eternal Security of OSAS, has never apply to them who are not Saved through Faith in Christ.

There will always be deceivers, who shall be counted among the worker of iniquity which swear up and down that they are Saved, yet Jesus will say unto them in the Last Day "I never knew you, depart from me", b/c they were never Saved.

BTW ~ I like to view OSAS as Once Sealed Always Sealed, b/c no one is worthy to break any Seal of God, but the Lamb of God.

Grace Unto You Both & Peace Be Multiplied
---Shawn.M.T. on 1/29/10


tommy7376:

This hinges on "all that the Father has given me". Unfortunately, there are many people who will swear up and down that they are saved, yet at the final judgment, Jesus will surprise them by saying "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity!" (Matthew 7:23, Luke 13:27).

So, even though "once actually saved, always actually saved" may be true, "once we feel saved, always saved" is not.
---StrongAxe on 1/29/10


Lawrence:
The verse about Demas, which you cite, cannot be found in Ist John, since it was written by Paul, not John.
2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica, Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
But I fail to see how //This put the Man-made teaching of once-saved always-saved in the hole//, as you say.

Paul is telling the whereabouts of several of his followers. He's not talking about salvation here.

Demas apparently got distracted from Paul's ministry and went to Thessalonica. Something in "this present world" appealed to him. No evidence he lost his salvation nor does Paul infer that he did.
---Donna66 on 1/29/10


I've already answered dara's question, but just one more thought to those who reject eternal security. The Bible tells us that Jesus said to His dicsiples, "all that the Father has given me I should lose nothing.(Jn6:39) In John 10:28,"and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish,neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand." Who does that "anyone" refer to? Are you NOT anyone?

I surely wouldn't want to put that to the test. The Bible teaches that it is not proper for man to decide who will acend into Heaven or decend into Hell. By doing this we take Jesus off of His throne. No man can answer this question regarding a believer in Christ. Of course if the person is not Christian in the first place, we know where he is going by default.

\\"Eternal security is true--depending on what one's source of security is." If its faith in Christ, eternal security is as real as God says it is in His Word.\\

My point exactly.

Our security is (or should be) in Christ Jesus, Who is eternal.

But I wonder how many people are seeking their security in their own act of faith.

(Not that I pretend to know.)

Exzucuh,
if you understood the real salvation doctrine you would understand why I reject your false statements. You can not find one verse that shows someone who was saved and then lost in God's Word.
Now I don't know who "You People" are you have refered to but I do see your judgemental attidue. That's OK maybe you have lost your salvation..... You can if it is not based on Christ.

Cluny, I like your answer to Strongaxe. I believe Shawn T's quotes exlained it very well to those who have ears to hear
"The only people hearing the Gospel as you've claimed, of being Saved & continuing to live in sin, are those who only physically hear the Word, and have yet to be Saved !!
Exzucuh, The Truth of Faith is to Trust in the Grace of God which is Sufficient to keep us Saved once we're dead to sin in Christ & raise us up."

You put it differently but the same in context when you said,
"Eternal security is true--depending on what one's source of security is." If its faith in Christ, eternal security is as real as God says it is in His Word.
---MarkV. on 1/27/10


Eternal security if you stay In God's realm. But when you or any one else is partaking of the things of this world, 1st John 2 v's 15-16, then God's security is Not valid. You canNot serve 2 masters, choose you today whom you will serve. The Almighty God & Creator, or the god of this world(satan).
---Lawrence on 1/27/10


Cluny:

While that might technically be true, there is a great difference between "being saved" and "feeling saved". Since we are not omniscient, we will not know for sure who is saved until the final judgment.

How about someone gets saved, but later backslides and turns into a hateful, murdering monster (or worse, does so and thinks it's OK because he has eternal security)? It's likely that he was never actually saved at all, just thinks that he was. He is of the type that Jesus will likely say "depart from me, I never knew you!". There will be many people with this delusion (Matthew 7:21-23, 25:31-46)

---Lawrence on 1/26/10


Lawrence:

I don't believe in OSAS (and the subsequent easy grace that translates into license to sin) either. However, once we are saved, God does not condemn us for every single sin - if he did, we would be no better off than BEFORE we were saved, since nobody is capable of living a 100% sin-free life.
---StrongAxe on 1/26/10


Exzucuh, the Scriptures you gave speak against you. No one loses salvation because he sinned. Everyone sins.
1 Cor. 3:13 is the judgment for believers. Called the "Judgment Seat of Christ" and this is where believers go to stand before God. There is no condemnation at this judgment for there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. At that judgment "If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer lose, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire" v. 14,15. So what you said is wrong.
---MarkV. on 1/26/10


-- Exzucuh :

Brother, God's Children never share that it's Ok to live in sin & justify it by following Jesus, b/c how shall we who are Saved through being dead to sin, live any longer therein. Rom.6:2

We're buffeted by thorns least we exalt ourselves (2Cor.12:3-9), and when we see the errors we have committed, we thank God for giving us a Heart through repentance in Christ to no longer live therein.

The only people hearing the Gospel as you've claimed, of being Saved & continuing to live in sin, are those who only physically hear the Word, and have yet to be Saved !!

You can walk in the Spirit now and not fulfill the lust of your flesh!

Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

You can build on a foundation that Jesus started or you can build upon the sands of carnality.

Galatians 2:17-18 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

Many of you will come to your day of fire and as my Gandpa used to say will be saved by the skin of your teeth. Because on that day as you are burning up by some slow process you will spend your last days repenting of your rebellion. As your carnality is dieing it's lust loses it's power.

Lawrence your statement shows that you don't understand the depth of God's salvation nor what the Bible really teaches.

According to the Bible and based upon what you say you are lost and can never be redeemed again. Now that is sad.

The difference in the Gospel I teach and the one that some of you teach is that I defend righteousness, holiness without you will not see the Lord, and you defend a gospel that justifies your sin and lets you live in carnality. You are not separate from the world
you do not have the mind of Christ to obey, you have the mind of the world to rebel against holiness and righteousness as Dathan rebelled against Moses and made his own religion. The earth is swallowing you up and many of you are going alive into hell, suffering by sickness and addiction, and the lust of you flesh. You do not discern the body of Christ, who's body you are, and will be destroyed by willfully joining Jesus to sin.

After we are saved, nothing can take that away.

Lawrence:

Jesus died ONCE, as an atonement for ALL our sins, past, present, and future.

Being saved is not a constantly-spinning Wheel of Fortune, where we go from saved to lost the moment we commit any infraction whatsoever, and we go back to saved the moment we tell God "I am sorry". Otherwise, we would have to live life in terror, hoping the wheel doesn't stop on the "lose your salvation" spot.

Besides, what of the many sins that we may commit, and not even realize it? Are those un-atoned-for as well? If so, then we are ALL lost, ALL the time!

God's Grace is sufficient(2Cor.12:7-9) to keeps us Saved & Dead to sin through Faith in the Finished Works of Christ, despite any thrones left in our sides that calls for the renewing of our minds : so we may prove what is that Good, Acceptable & Perfect Will of God.

Being a Christian isn't a Carte Blanche to do as you please part of the time and only serve God when it suits you. You enter a contract,a covenant with Christ,through the blood he shed,when you/we accept the forgiveness God gives when we repent.

Is life a game of Russian Roulette where our final destination is determined solely by the very last thing we do or say before we die? If so, that would be a sad state of affairs, and render Christ's sacrifice ineffective.

I picked up using curse words at a young,5 years old,but they were nothing like people use now. I used them to deter someone from bothering a loved one,the family thought it cute me thinking I could protect the loved one and I wasn'r scolded for it. I don't advocate cussing but when my friend and I were 9 years old 4 men in a car tried to pick us up,and I cussed them up one side and down the other,they died laughing at the unexpected response and drove away, leaving us alone. I shudder to think what could have happened. I know the real bottom line is God took care of us because I have a praying Mother. After I was saved it took me years to get over the instant response of wanting to curse. I didn't because I love the Lord,but the urge was there.

Matthew 24:46-51 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming, And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken, The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus said his servants can be good or evil
the evil ones will be Judged with hypocrites.

Acts 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

Acts 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

Acts 8:22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

Peter told this saved man to repent so this sin MAY PERHAPS BE FORGIVEN not a sure thing.

Our righteousness before we are born again and are still the old man is filthy rags.

Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance, seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

After you become a son of God you are accountable for your sin that you have committed under the blood of Jesus.

The judgment you refer to has to do with the rewards you will be given, and the rewards will be awarded in direct relationship to your(behavior) deeds good are bad.

Our rewards are not a free gift, however our salvation is a free gift. Our salvation is based on our beliefs, really what we believe about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Those that see salvation as a reward for their behavior are attempting to establish their own righteousness. And our own righteousness is as filthy rags------ you know the Scripture as well as I .

Yes, you never know when you might die. You could say a curse word, then die, right then and there. There are people who curse because they have been spending their lives trying to get what they want for themselves, instead of first seeking to be pleasing to God. And so, when things don't go their selfish way, they curse. If this is why you curse, then I'd have to consider you would go to hell, but not just because of the curse word. Jesus says, "'He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.'" (John 12:25) Your cursing can mean you are losing your life because your selfish spirit (Ehesians 2:2) has you spoiling things, even while you seek what you want.

mima God does not judge on the basis of what we do(good or bad).

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that every one may receive the
-->things done in his body,<-- according to that he hath done, whether it be
-->good or bad.<--

CONTRADICTION TO THE WORD
---exzucuh on 1/25/10


What makes a word a curse word is the hatred and contempt with which it's said.

A farmer can't afford to be coy about his lifestock's digestion or reproduction.

But the French word "douche" which simply means "shower" gets used as a curse word, or at least term of contempt, frequently.

So it's not the word itself. It's why you said it.

Why are you worrying about this?

Revelation 3:15-16 I know thy -->works,<-- that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Revelation 3:20-21 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and -->open the door<--,
I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that -->overcometh <--
will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

How did Jesus over come? (think about it)
he did the works of his Father!

You have to overcome your unbelief and open the door, just believing he is on the other side is not Faith.

God does not judg on the basis of what we do(good or bad). God judges us on what we believe.

31-They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be savedyou and your household."

Would you be brave enough to burn in hell for one stupid word? You would do a lot better to yell glory,because if you are saved,seems rejoicing over your salvation is smarter than saying a curse word. No one on earh really knows if you'd got to hell or not but I can tell you this,God wouldn't like it.

NO!

Many false beliefs, false attitudes, and misunderstandings have always been taught. Devotion to God is NOT a 'behavior contest', it's about LOVING God. He is our true heritage (our heavenly dad).

Many people have simply 'brushed God aside' and forgotten Him. Devotion to God means remembering Him with fond memories. No matter what you ever hear/read or are taught, always remember one thing....GOD IS LOVE,....and that (LOVE) is what our devotion to Him should be based on (ABOVE ALL). Faith is only the BEGINNING of TRUE devotion.

1 Corinthians 13:13
"faith, hope, love abide,....but the greatest of these is love".

Cursing is a bad habit. It allows us to have more bad habits.

Verse is from the RSV.
