Alan, I am thankful we agree finally. That is so awesome. That you and I can agree on something. I remember we agreed on the pain we both went through with the death of our wives. So peace to you from California.
---MarkV. on 5/6/10


GOD should not let me into heaven. I do not deserve it and can never be good enough to get there on my own.

Because He is a Loving GOD and JESUS died for my sins He will let me by His Grace into the New Earth to live with him.

The fact that He wants and decided to do this always amazes me. But at a song says Our GOD is an Awesome GOD.
---Samuel on 5/6/10


Mrk ... we agree .... I do hope you will stop assuming that everything I say to you is an attack.
I still wonder why you said "Your argument is not valid", because I was making no argument, and you agree with what I was saying.
---alan8566_of_uk on 5/6/10


Alan, you said I posted that a lot of Catholic were not Christians, Of course there is many who are not, not just in the Catholic faith but everywhere. What else is new? Is that all? No other reason? That is obvious to anyone that not all who claim to be save are saved if they were, they would not be murdering, or for that matter raping and molesting children.
---MarkV. on 5/5/10


Donna66: "Patience -- Because He is my Father and that means His home is where I belong with Him.
I can think of no better reason."

What about Love - the ultimate command from Jesus.
---Steveng on 5/4/10




Patience -- Because He is my Father and that means His home is where I belong with Him.
I can think of no better reason.
---Donna66 on 5/1/10


Why should my Father let me into His house?
Because He is my Father and that means His home is where I belong with Him.
Amen
---Patience on 5/1/10


Mark ... I made that point on the other blog, partly because your previous post had just referred to a lot of Catholics who were not Christians, not mentioning similar Protestants.

And partly to support Ignatius's point by giving the terrible & actual example of Northern Ireland.

But I came back this time, with mine of 4/30, because you had said my argument was not valid, and I did not understand why you said that, since I had not been putting any argument, only facts.
---alan8566_of_uk on 5/1/10


Alan, Of course I agree, that is why I answered you the way I did. If you agreed what was the purpose of posting what you did to me? Were you agreeing?
I can see you agree that no genuine Christian would go around bombing innocent children or babies. So I don't get it why you came to me with your posting.
Normally when you post something to me is because you have something to say to me that you do not like. Was just wondering, you do not have to answer by the way. It would be cool.
---MarkV. on 4/30/10


MarkV: "You think you are right and they think you are wrong, and do not want to hear your doctrine."

It's not my doctrine, it's in the Word of God. I have a suggestion. Take all my posts and compare them with the bible. Most of my posts is in relation to end time prophesies so I would compare all my posts to prophesies first. And, of course, pray to the Father about what you are concerned about my posts. If you can't hear him then someone will cross your path that will give you the knowledge you seek.
---Steveng on 4/30/10




MarkV ... On the 21st Century Idols blog (now closed) you said "Alan, the answer is no. Your argument is not valid"

Mark ... what argument?

The purpose was to show that of those bombers, neither the Catholic 'Christians' nor the Protestant 'Christians' were real Christians.

I think you would agree
---alan8566_of_uk on 4/30/10


Steven G, I guess you and I can go back and forth on this subject and nothing will change. I enjoy answering you, though it is never concerning Doctrine. It is always about what you think and believe. No one can change that but God. I do not even try. I just give my opinion and that is it. There is many good churches, maybe the hundreds you have gone to are not to your liking because your doctrine is wrong to began with. You think you are right and they think you are wrong, and do not want to hear your doctrine.
---MarkV. on 4/30/10


As much as I smell, stink, in my sins. I don't know. I suppose I had better trust GOD. Ahhhh....Why should GOD let you into heaven? A good question.... HELLO JESUS. You know I love You. And I thank You for putting up with me. Thank You for your Blood which was shed for me. Me of all the people. You saved me, above kings, queen bees, the powerful. Thank You, My Lord, My God, and My Savior. And I want to thank You, too, for teaching me, about You. So few people REALLY KNOW THE TRUE, LIVING GOD. AHHHH.
---catherine on 4/30/10


MarkV: "Steven G,.. You say all denomination are of the devil, and you go to start classes there. If they are teaching what you are teaching them, and they are of the devil, are you not working in his place?"

That's why I don't stay very long at these churches because I don't conform to their doctrines.

MarkV: "If you had not made those comments I would have said, "Fantastic,.."

No you wouldn't.
---Steveng on 4/29/10


MarkV: "I am glad you are helping the churches,..."

I'm not helping the churches, I'm helping the person or persons within the church (a huge difference) to know the truth.

MarkV: "I believe if we think there is something wrong in a denomination we should bring it to the leaders attention, if they don't want to listen, we can move on to another one which teaches the essentials of the Christian faith."

You do it your way, I'll do what the Holy Spirit tells me to do. I surely don't want to be found in a belly of a fish if I didn't. I'm glad Jesus found it worthy of me to be one of his ministers.
---Steveng on 4/29/10


Heaven is an inheritance and, who determines that inheritance? Is it not God? So, why should God let anyone into heaven? If we know when the thief will come, we can be prepared and not suffer loss. Likewise, if it were possible to know God's will we can be sure of being included in his affairs, John 8:29. Concerning inheritance, Luke 10:25, Luke 18:18, Mark 10:17, Matthew 25:34, Ephesians 5:5.
Matthew 7:21: "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

Steven G, I only answer to what you have posted. Go back and read it. You say all denomination are of the devil, and you go to start classes there. If they are teaching what you are teaching them, and they are of the devil, are you not working in his place?
If you had not made those comments I would have said, "Fantastic, I am glad you are helping the churches, you are doing a great job, but you jinx the churches first, and then tell everyone you go and start classes there. What's up with that answer?
I believe if we think there is something wrong in a denomination we should bring it to the leaders attention, if they don't want to listen, we can move on to another one which teaches the essentials of the Christian faith.
---MarkV. on 4/28/10


God does not have to save anyone! You will never get to heaven by your own standards. You stand before God one day and give Him a list of all the reasons why you should be allowed in. My friends, NO ONE DESERVES HEAVEN. Not you and not me. If God gave us, each one of us what we deserved, We would all end up in hell. And we would have no right to complain about it. You better make sure that God has favoured you....Just because Jesus died on a cross, and shed His Blood at the hands of wicked men in power, does not mean that you will go to heaven. ONLY A FEW.
---catherine on 4/27/10


MarkV: "If what you say is true, why do I still work at denominational churches when asked to start new classes, programs, or services?"
if you work with denominations that Satan is working with as you have said, then you are working for him."

You see, MarkV, you have twisted my posts again as you do with Scripture - to attack the Word of God. Satan does not work within the denominational church, he created denominations to divide the church. He blinded the minds of men to make them believe in a lie - to create their own religion. Satan deceived man to start the religion and man developed it.

Besides, Christ came to a polluted world, was he working for Satan?

MarkV, the Holy Spirit leads me, and hundreds of others, to these churches when a church asks for help. I stay just enough time to complete the creation of classes and sermons and to do a particular job that I was sent to do. I usually don't stay long because I would not conform to their denominational doctrines.

You are aware, I'm sure, after doing research on all my previous posts to find some truth you can twist, of the first church that I went up against, eh? Hint: I was nine years old at the time.
---Steveng on 4/27/10


Catherine He shouldn't. And I will not get in by own standards. God help us all.

You won't get in by HIS standards either, for He demands perfection... and you can't achieve THAT, no matter how hard you try.

You will get into Heaven ONLY if Jesus has credited His perfection to your account.
THIS He has done, if you have taken Him as your Savior.
---Donna66 on 4/27/10


To me there is only one true church started when Adam and Eve repented and decided to turn to GOD. The first Martyr Abel.

The church of GOD'S called out people has existed ever since. The Messiah was promised to Adam and Eve and when JESUS came about 2,000 years ago HE fulfilled that promise. Let us keep our eyes on GOD the Father, GOD the son and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT.
---Samuel on 4/27/10


GOD will let me into heaven because of what JESUS has done. His death on the cross paid the penalty for my sins. His filling me with the HOLY SPIRIT has me being Born again by His power. JESUS interceding as my HIGH PRIEST has lead me to follow HIM.

Sola Grace, Sola faith

Steven G, you said,
"There is only one true church - the body of Christ. Christ started his church 2,000 years ago and Satan has had 2,000 years to polute it."
The body of Christ is a spiritual body of those who are born of the Spirit of whom Christ is the Head, how can Satan pollute that body? Not possible.
The visible church is pollute because the Bible tells us it is made up of Wheat and Tares and Christ will get rid of the Tares.
You say also,
"If what you say is true, why do I still work at denominational churches when asked to start new classes, programs, or services?"
if you work with denominations that Satan is working with as you have said, then you are working for him.
---MarkV. on 4/27/10


Steve, I share much with you but not your attitude towards denominations. I am sure you are correct in some instances, but not generally. Like most Christians I have Christian friends in many countries, and denominationalism is not a problem. Most of my friends attend different denominations than I but there is no problem. My experience is that if a Christian holds God's word as His supreme authority then there is no problem. I meet people like this, of one mind, in Christ, wherever I travel in the world.

I can only imagine what has happened to you to create your attitude.
---Warwick on 4/27/10


MarkV, "Steven, there is some fine churches out there, you just haven't tried to find one. How can you know?"

There is only one true church - the body of Christ. Christ started his church 2,000 years ago and Satan has had 2,000 years to polute it. Remember, MarkV, that we are living in the end times as in the days of Noah. Love has waxed cold over all the earth and the Word of God has been watered down so much that christians don't know what the real truth is. Do you truly believe that Iraqi christians know the truth? They don't. They are building a statue of Jesus like the one in Rio de Janeiro.

MarkV, "Steven G, ...You have a bias attitute already."

If what you say is true, why do I still work at denominational churches when asked to start new classes, programs, or services?

MarkV, "It is like having a theological bias, you have heard it through someone, believe it, defended it and you do not want to give it up even when wrong."

You took your truth right out of your own mouth. Yes, I do have a theological bias - and it's based upon only the Word of God. I don't polute my mind with concordances, novels, christian reference books, and author's opinions in books and magazines. I use the bible as its own reference. Colossians 2:8-10. I will defent the truth until I get one foot into the grave.
---Steveng on 4/26/10


MarkV, This is one example of dozens having you twist my posts. You wrote, "Now you add that you know hundreds, not one or two, who would rather die then to go a demominational church."

I wrote, "I've known hundreds of denominational christians who would rather die than to go into a competing denomination." A competing denomination. To be more specific, a Lutheran would rather die than go to a competing denomination like a baptist church. For your information, I work and have worked at many churches throughout North America when asked to help form new bible studies, ESL classes, and new services. I may not like denominational churches, but there are people in them that need the truth.

"Denominational "churches" divide christians into their own little cults each having their own traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible." (Steven G)

They are not during anything that you haven't done in these blogs. Don't you have YOUR own traditions, ways of living, and interpretations of the Bible (that differ from another in these blogs)?

In IC.XC.,
---Ignatius on 4/26/10


Steven G, I have already heard all of statements against the denominational churches. You have a bias attitute already. It is like having a theological bias, you have heard it through someone, believe it, defended it and you do not want to give it up even when wrong. You were not given help from the churches you stopped at on your world tour, so you think they should have help you, so now they are all bad, of the devil.
Now you add that you know hundreds, not one or two, who would rather die then to go a demominational church. Hundreds, ready to die, not for Christ, but not to go to denominational churches. Your bias is growing.
Steven, there is some fine churches out there, you just haven't tried to find one. How can you know?

MarkV, if you don't know the difference between my opinions and the Words of God, then you are in bad shape concerning scripture. For instance, you know that Satan is the father of confusion, deception, and lies and misleads SOULS unaware.

Denominational "churches" divide christians into their own little cults each having their own traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible. They bicker between denominationas and even among the same denomination arguing whose church is better (pastor, entertainment, programs). I've known hundreds of denominational christians who would rather die than to go into a competing denomination. It also confuses a newly born christian having to decide what church to join. Matthew 12:25

He lets you into heaven for one reason.Jesus died for your sins and you accepted Him as your Savior.
---shirley on 4/24/10


MarkV: I like your points regarding which exact day of the week that God appointed as the 7th day. None of it matters anyway. Actually we enter into Gods rest through the work of Jesus and I haven't seen scripture stating any assignment of day/days that this rest would include. Bible says to "let each man be fully convinced in his oun mind". So, in my mind, I am convinced that these are unimportant debates. Personally, I give myself over to Jesus every morning and ask for His Spirit to work through and keep me. It is a daily and even sometimes hourly prayer/routine:) Peace and Gods love to you:)

Steven G, I have no way of knowing if you are a bad person. So far you have not said anything bad to me, or anyone else, only that you don't agree. In fact you have been kind in your arguments. Nothing from Scripture though as you stated. The subjects I have read from you are only your opinions for we have not discussed any topics from Scripture. The prophets you saw, I believe was in Seattle, the Bible without numbers is your opinion, all churches are from satan is your opinion, since you haven't gone to all of them, the one on not to read anything but the Bible was a beauty because you send everyone to the internet to look for help on the Bible. But above all things you have not been mean or do I think you are a bad person.
---MarkV. on 4/24/10


MarkV: "Steven, ye, do that, think about it, and work on it, simplify it until you come out with a passage. Actually you should ask your prophets that you say don't speak and maybe they can tell you where to find it by mental radio waves."

Gosh, when you take what is written out of context relating to my previous posts, you really turn it on. That shows that you take verses from God's word out of context, too. You make it sound like I'm really a bad person, but what you are actually doing is making God to be a bad person for everything I have written is found in the bible.
---Steveng on 4/23/10


The only reason God will let anyone in heaven is belief in:

For God so loved the world that He gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON...not created son, or eternal son, but BEGOTTEN SON, that who so ever believes in His will not perish but have evertlasting Life.


John tells right from the beginning of ETERNITY was the WORD and the Word was WITH GOD and the WORD was God.

John DOES NOT SAY, in the Beginning was the eternal son who was with God and was God. GOD was not an eternal son from the beginning..

Begotten does not mean CREATED, as some unfortunately think. There are many Jesus's, out there, but God's ONLY BEGOTTEN SON is the ONLY one who brings salvation!!
TODAY Have I BEGOTTEN THEE!!!

Steven, ye, do that, think about it, and work on it, simplify it until you come out with a passage. Actually you should ask your prophets that you say don't speak and maybe they can tell you where to find it by mental radio waves. Or, see if you can come out with a passage somehow by simplifying it. Then come back and show it to me. Thanks

MarkV: "Steven G, what you explained I already know."

Apparently you still do not understand. I do not know how to simplify it any more than what I wrote, but if I do, I'll let you know.
---Steveng on 4/22/10


Steven G, what you explained I already know. I told you I did not need any lessons concerning this point. You still did not provide a passage or passages that God ordained the Saturday as the Sabbath. That was the statement Jerry made. God has never declared on what day, whether Monday or Tuesday He started the first day. He didn't say on Saturday I will rest. Now I could be wrong, I was wrong with 1 Cliff statement, but I am pretty sure I never read God ordaining Saturday. He ordain for the people to observe the seventh day of the week, but didn't tell them what day that was. I'm still waiting. Calendar was made by man. Man chose to make Saturday the seventh, but God did not ordain Saturday, man did.
---MarkV. on 4/22/10


MarkV: "Steven G, I went back and read your post as slowly as I could and could not find where God said He ordained Saturday as the day for the Sabbath."

God created the heavens and the earth in six days. He rested on the seventh and ordained it to be holy. So every seventh day from the beginning was, still is, and forever shall be holy no matter what calendar you use. Remember, the seventh day Sabbath is not a Jewish Sabbath because the Jews were not around on the seventh day of creation, but they did keep it holy. Now, overlay the Gregorian calendar over the Jewish calendar and the Sabbath just so happens to fall on a Saturday. It could have been any other day, but the fact is that the Sabbath falls on a Saturday.
---Steveng on 4/21/10


Steveng -- In much of Europe and South America, the first day of the week is Monday. If you live there do you observe the Sabbath on the seventh day or on Saturday?

Jhn 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Jhn 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

It's not about "love"...It's about Jesus.

Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world, and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead. For He was crucified on the day before that of Saturn (Saturday), and on the day after that of Saturn, which is the day of the Sun, having appeared to His apostles and disciples, He taught them these things, which we have submitted to you also for your consideration.--Justin Martyr(103-165AD), First Apology, Ch 67.
One must remember Judea was under Roman control with their own calendar, so the Jewish and Roman calendars were compared. I don't think Pilate went by the Jewish calendar but he must have known it.
---MIchael on 4/20/10


Steven G, I do not need a lesson on the law. Jerry stated that God ordained Saturday as the Sabbath. I asked him to show me scripture. He provided the same thing you did. What you and he provide says nothing to the effect that God ordain Saturday. I said, in fact, God never tells us on what day He started creation.
What God says, and what man says are two different things. Man made Saturday the Sabbath. I'm not here to win an argument, but Jerry insist on everyone having Saturday as the Sabbath. And now he says God ordained it but has no proof.

Alan of UK -- Isn't the next line of the song, "I 'aint a gonna grieve my Lord no more". (this is an old negro spiritual). I remember this song from years ago.
---Donna66 on 4/19/10


Why, because I asked Jesus into my heart years ago... The Bible says, "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" Rom. 10:9. I did this. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again on the third day.
I also believe that the world knows of Jesus with a "head" knowledge. The only thing is that they have not moved that knowledge to their hearts. I believe that a lot of people will "miss" heaven by 18". Because they did not bring the knowledge of Christ into their hearts.

MarkV.: concerning the Saturday Sabbath.

Christians are to learn from our forefathers. As I said before, let's reason this out.

God rewarded his people when they were good and he punished them when they were bad - even if they broke the least of the law. Right? Now if they broke the Sabbath (which has always been on a certain day which just so happens to fall on a Saturday on the Gregorian calendar) and practiced it on any other day than Saturday (in the Gregorian calendar), they would have never ever been rewarded, not at all.

Steven G, no disrespect, and hate to disappoint you on this Sunday, but I believe that Catherine is correct. You have to be save first by the blood of Christ in order to follow what you stated.
Those who are lost do not care what Jesus has to say. And even if they read the whole of Scripture, does not suggest they will obey, because to love God with all of your heart and all of your soul and all of your mind, you would have to be saved. No one lost loves Christ. When Jesus gave the two Commandments He was giving them to the one's who were saved who believed in His Word. Those who could hear, and only His sheep hear His voice. Jesus was reminding them that with the Two Commandments all that was taught of God was included.
---MarkV. on 4/18/10


Steven Part 2: Steven you answered me on another blog that close concerning my response to Jerry answer. You said that I was wrong and gave a whole lot of passages and on none of them did God say the Seventh day was a Saturday.
He claimed, as you, that "God" ordained Saturday as the Sabbath. I said he was wrong. I ask for passages and none were given to indicate God saying Saturday. He did say to rest on the Seventh but never once mentioned that the Seventh was on a Saturday. That in fact when God begin His creation He didn't mention what day He started. No day is given when He started, so no day is given for the Seventh to be Saturday. It was not God who ordain Saturday, it was man who called the Seventh day Saturday.

You don't care? A typical christian reply by a pretend christian. Then you don't care about the truth. That's what the bible is all about. Try reading a few of the verses instead of jumping to conclusions. What are the two commandments Jesus spoke of? What is the ultimate command by Jesus?

catherine: " The Blood is the only thing that will get you into heaven....."

You're taking the blood thing too literal. The "blood" is only used as a metaphor for Jesus' death. But what does he SAY that gets christians into heaven? LOVE! That's it. Nothing more. Nothing less.

I do not believe anyone's salvation can be based, on keeping the sacraments, on being baptized as an infant.

\\Because I've confessed with my mouth Jesus is Lord, believed in my heart God raised Him from the dead and Romans tells me "then you shall be saved" (from the wrath of God).\\

Actually, in Jewish thought at the time the NT was written (and still so today) one was saved not because of a "personal relationship with YHVH as one's personal savior," or what prayer you said or formula you followed, but by being one of the saved people.

LOL I want to add: at first I read this question the wrong way, I thought it said something about how are you getting to heaven (it's been a long day at work today) and I laughed and said, "Lord, can I come up in a Rolls Royce?" JOKE!!!! LOL

Because I asked?

Because I've confessed with my mouth Jesus is Lord, believed in my heart God raised Him from the dead and Romans tells me "then you shall be saved" (from the wrath of God).

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one goes to the Fatehr buy THROUGH Jesus and his redemptive work on the cross, accepting the sacrifice that Jesus died for your sins, that you are a sinner and confess and repent from your sins and you shall be saved. Jesus said, "Unless ye repent, ye shall perish."

Hebrews 6:17-18 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed [it] by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which [it was] impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us
Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call.
1Cor 1:9 God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
To answer the question, because He promised.
I rely on God's truth and faithfulness through the finished work of His Son, The Lord Jesus Christ.

I have nothing to add to Ignatius, except to say that we respond on a minute-by-minute basis. It's as close as we can presently come to God's eternal NOW.

God doesn't have to do anything. He didn't have to create us yet he did, out of love. The Only-Begotten Son bowed the heavens, came down from his Almighty Throne, became flesh (John 1:14) in the Holy Womb of the Theotokos, became like us, apart from sin (Heb 4:15), while remaining true God in One Person. He acted as God in all divine matters, as man in all human matters, subjecting Himself to all humans passions that are blameless (hunger, tiredness, etc). Although as God He was immortal and without suffering, as Man He chose to suffer in the flesh for our sake, to be crucified, to die, and to be buried. He rose again and He destroyed him that had the power of death (Heb 2:4)

It is what HE DID and HOW I respond to it!

In IC.XC.,
