Jerry, I hear you answer all the time, I know what your purpose is, or I think I do, and I respect your views as I respect everyone. But I believe that when you said Catherine had said something when she didn't it was wrong. I see so many now saying stuff others never say. And you do not have to go in that direction. Jack does it all the time, Alan, and so many others. They don't answer Scripture given to them, but conclude something so wrong and accuse others of saying things they do not say. Of course if they say something we should answer. As I told Jack, I am willing to answer any question I can with Scripture, and if I cannot I will say so. You want to speak about what you just said make a post for this one is ending soon. I will respond.
---MarkV. on 9/1/10


Jack, your arguments have no truth to them. 1. it is by God's will and His mercy that we are saved.
2. God could not be Omnipotent if man can do what he wants.
3. If you had read the Bible you would know that Adam never was deceived or tempted, only Eve was.
4. God does not control our thoughts, He knows all our thoughts before we think them.
5. You need to read, and study very hard, the nature, character and attributes of God. Then you need a couple of books on wordstudy, Hebrew and Greek to know the meaning of the passages when they seem to speak against another passage. If you love Christ as you say, you would do that.
---MarkV. on 9/1/10


"We are explicitly told that in the matter of salvation it is not of him that wills, or of him that runs, but of God that show mercey" - MarkV

Agreed, but who are you or John Calvin to say that he doesnt WILL it for all men when his word states that He does in numerous scriptures? He even tasted death for EVERY man!

//So to imply that Almighty God is trying save someone and cannot is to imply that He is not Omnipotent but impotent.//

Only in your mind, Mark. For some reason you have a problem with God giving man free will and see it as Gods weakness.

If God were controlling our every thought and action then He would have no JUST reason to condemn us for DISOBEDIENT.
---JackB on 8/31/10


Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained, whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

///Why don't you ask me? I will give you an answer if possible. Just ask me. I am not afraid to give you an answer with Scripture, I always do, and you reject it// - MarkV

Ok Mark... show me where in the Bible it says that God withheld the ability for Adam to resist the temptation of Eve, and Eve the ability to resist the temptation of the serpent.
---JackB on 8/31/10




MarkV: "I have never heard her say that the purpose of God was to create the majority for the sole purpose to torture them forever, have you?"

Like you, Catherine believes that the "saved" were chosen to be "saved" before their birth - before they accepted God or did anything right, and conversely, the "lost" were deemed lost and destined for eternal torture before their birth - before they chose to do anything wrong. Scripture tells us that the vast majority of souls will be lost. Am I wrong?
---jerry6593 on 8/31/10


Jack B, You didn't respond to my answers to you, which you know you contradicted what you yourself believe. And now again you pick a verse out of context with Romans 5:18, to indicate that every single person receives the free gift resulting in justifcation of life, but that is not what the verse is saying at all, for verse (15) already indicated that the gift by the Grace of the One Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to "Many" not every single individual. For salvation is only for those who exercise faith in Jesus Christ (1:16,17: 3:22,28: 4:5,13).
Jack, if you want to ask a question, ask me from Scripture and I will do my best to answer, I cannot answer to your opinions since you look at God completely different then I do.
---MarkV. on 8/31/10


Jack 2:
You asked,
"Are men condemned for how they were born into this world, or because they reject (with a proud heart) the loving hand of God that tries to rescue them from their own state of sinfulness?"
First, what God does never fails. So to imply that Almighty God is trying save someone and cannot is to imply that He is not Omnipotent but impotent. False. Second, they are condemned for rebelling against a Holy and righteous God. God could have saved all, or saved none. But He did neither, that God elected some is the miracle.
"We are explicitly told that in the matter of salvation it is not of him that wills, or of him that runs, but of God that show mercey"
---MarkV. on 8/31/10


MarkV ... "How much worse can it get? They need Christ to come into their lives. That is why we witness to them"

Mark, your own words show how muddled you are about God having already selected those whom He will save (and as Jack said, those whom He will torture because He prevented them form being saved)
---alan8566_of_uk on 8/30/10


//Jack, there is no more bad news for the lost, they are already heading to hell because of Adams fall.// - MarkV

Exactly!

Romans 5:18
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon ALL men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon ALL men unto justification of life.

..unless of course you suggest that God doesnt give ALL men a chance to escape the condition in which they were brought into this world? (born and shapen in iniquity).

Are men condemned for how they were born into this world, or because they reject (with a proud heart) the loving hand of God that tries to rescue them from their own state of sinfulness?
---JackB on 8/30/10




//"At least ... when you answer, why don't you do it for the glory of God?"//

Mark, the only reason you claim YOUR answers are for the 'glory of God' is because you are on the blessed side of the doctrine you teach. And the blessing is not available to all men.

You wont dare look at the other side of what you preach, because THEN you will see it for what it really is.

It makes God into one who brings sin and death upon his creation for his own good pleasure. That is neither GOOD nor HOLY!

What did the serpent accuse God of? Being deceitful to Adam and eve. Hiding the truth from them.

---JackB on 8/30/10


Augie, none of the things you mentioned will God use to judge people.

He will ask, "What did you do with my Son Jesus and what He did for you on Calvary?"

"Did you accept my Son Jesus as your Lord of your life and your Saviior?"

He will either say to you: Well done thy good and faithful servant (not much done) OR Be gone from me, for I never knew you.

To know Him and Believe in Him and Obey His word is eternal life. Jesus said so.
---Donna5535 on 8/30/10


Jack, you said,
"//My desire is for the WORLD to know the truth and be saved (just as it was with the men of scripture and my heavenly Father)."
You, Ginger argued that the whole world already knows the grace of Salvation, the Truth of Scripture. And now you desire that everyone knows the Truth. I do not understand both of you.
Then you said,
"Place yourself on the other side of the doctrine you teach. You only think of the good news it brings to the 'elect', not the bad news it brings to the"
Jack, there is no more bad news for the lost, they are already heading to hell because of Adams fall. How much worse can it get? They need Christ to come into their lives. That is why we witness to them
---MarkV. on 8/30/10


//Jack, I think its time you got off your high horse.//--- MarkV

MY high horse???

Nothing is farther from the truth.

My desire is for the WORLD to know the truth and be saved (just as it was with the men of scripture and my heavenly Father).
Yours is for the "elect". (naturally because you believe you are one)

Place yourself on the other side of the doctrine you teach. You only think of the good news it brings to the 'elect', not the bad news it brings to the lost. That's a GOSPEL?

Consider what it would be like to be one of those "chosen for destruction". Tell me you would feel the same way about the God you preach. Would you still feel love for Him? A desire to repent and serve Him?
---JackB on 8/30/10


GOD CREATED EVERY THING FOR hIS GLORY, this includes humans. The lost and the saved. God is a holy God. You cannot make Him out to be nothing other that what He is. A holy, just, righteous, God, who hates sin. If you are worried, well, that could be a good sign. Hwever, only Jesus can saved you through His mighty, powerful, Blood. Halllujah.
---catherine on 8/30/10


GOD will firstly, by viewing our thoughts, words and actions. And, He will judge our motives for all of these thoughts, words and actions. To see if they line up with HIS Holy Motives. All of the above "stuff" listed in the Question is temporary and will be measured according to how that "stuff" was used for HIS Glory and for HIS Kingdom.

Jack, I think its time you got off your high horse. And just answer the questions and passages given to you. Instead of throwing arrows for your glory. At least on this Monday, when you answer, why don't you do it for the glory of God? And bring Scripture not just words.
You said,
"//SHE may not have said it , but there are others who have said it by their beliefs on predestination and other comments about how God withheld the ability for Adam and Eve to resist temptation in the garden, which led to their fall." If she did not say it, why accuse her? Why don't you ask me? I will give you an answer if possible. Just ask me. I am not afraid to give you an answer with Scripture, I always do, and you reject it.

//I have never heard her say that the purpose of God was to create the majority for the sole purpose to torture them forever, have you? ---MarkV. on 8/29/10 //

catherine,

All we are trying to do is help you my dear. You are in state of spiritual destruction (i.e., talking to familiar spirits, having physical and sexual encounters with your "lord", non-biblical teachings being pass along by your spirits, etc) and unless you get deliver you will get deeper into the pit.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:22
"But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

\\Why don't you ask a Scripture question to debate on what she says, by giving passages to that effect? I do not answer as she does, but what she speaks about Scripture is true\\

I've pointed out to catherine many times that most of the things she--or that she claims her familiar spirit told her--contradict the clear obvious words of Scripture.

When I've asked her to clarify, she ignores the questions.

She has even said on another thread, "I don't need no Scripture!"

"If I were the type who cared what people think about me, God never would've chosen me to be a prophet." (catherine)

You are no prophet of God. You speak to Ghosts (familiar spirits/demons). You told us so. Your physical and sexual relationship your "lord" as well as the many non-biblical teachings posted by you are proofs enough that you have not been called by God.

"As long as I am pleasing the living God, my Savior, "

Pleasing the Living God does not involve sexual advances, as you and your demons had one night (per your story).

Jerry, its a shame that you have to resort to trying to bring down Catherine with all your remarks and questions. Why don't you ask a Scripture question to debate on what she says, by giving passages to that effect? I do not answer as she does, but what she speaks about Scripture is true. If you find some things wrong ask them by using Scripture. You ask stupid question like,
"Don't you think it cruel of your god to create the MAJORITY of his children for the sole purpose of torturing them forever? Would you do that to your children? Are you kinder than your god?

\\God never would've chosen me to be a prophet.\\

But the real God didn't. Only your familiar spirit (who is probably an incubus, as we have lately seen) did so.

This is seen by so many of your statements flat out contradicting the Bible.

You've even said, and I quote, "I don't need no Scriptures."
---Cluny on 8/29/10


catherine: The Bible gives certain tests of a true prophet - are you SURE you meet them all?

Does your testimony line up with the entire Old Testament (including all Ten Commandments)?

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Do you go faint and stop breathing when in vision?

Dan 10:17 .... there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.

Do you receive supernatural strength?

Dan 10:18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,

Are your prophecies 100% accurate?

Catherine, I agree on your answers, not the way you state them but what you say concerning the Gospel of Christ.
Many here witness to others, and they are proud to tell them how God saved them, how they were separated from God and how God came into their lives, but in their hearts they do not believe one idoa of what they tell others. When in fact they are stating the opposite here, that they came to Christ out of their own free will. They close that emnity against God all on their own power.
"The Lord of Hosts has sworn: 'As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand...For the Lord of hosts has purposed , and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back"

I couldn't agree more! Unless you show love and compassion for your fellow man here and now, you will not stand in the judgement. You give the impression that you enjoy the thought of your brother and sister Christians roasting way too much. That is not Christian love - that is of Satan.

Mat 7:21,23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven ... And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

(31-46) helping those in need is much more important than great personal works.

catherine: Well, at least you answered one of the three direct questions, but the rest of your response, although mildly entertaining, was wholly irrelevant.

How do you know that you are in the 'saved' rather than the 'lost' pile?

Don't you think it cruel of your god to create the MAJORITY of his children for the sole purpose of torturing them forever? Would you do that to your children? Are you kinder than your god?

The more you are able to see your condition, without the Blood of Christ..... I have a testimony that I want to give and, I might as well give it here. Watching the 700 club, they were talking about the 50's 1958 to be exact Emmit Till. He was murdered and the white men who did it was acquitted. His cousin became very angry and bitter. And in a bar one night God spoke to him and said, "If you die in your sins you will go to hell". This indeed hit home because God said similar to me, "if you don't get forgiveness of all your sins you will die and go to hell. Something about God, His voice, man. Wow.

catherine: Three questions:

Do you believe that YOU were predestined ("chosen") for salvation before the foundation of the earth?

Do YOU also believe that others of us were predestined ("chosen") for the lake of fire and will be lost - no matter our repentance and acceptance of the grace of Jesus?

What kind of a capricious god would create someone just to turture them? Certainly not the God of love that I know.

The Saints will not be judged by the same standard as the sinners. Those who dies without the living God in them, will stand before God, and God shall sentence them to the "Lake of fire". No matter how good you are. Or how rotten you are, if you DIE without Jesus, TO HELL YOU GO. Forever. Maybe you won't have a whole lot of stuff against you, maybe you won't.

Almighty God has one criteria for judging mankind. The criteria is what you and I have done with his son the Lord Jesus Christ. We will not be judged by obedience, keeping the law, or our sins.

Our sins like a mighty fence between us and God has been broken down by God's grace. And so our condition before God depends on our receiving his crucified son the Lord Jesus Christ

3) Is there any unforgiveness in your heart towards anyone? If ye forgive their trespasses, yours are forgiven. If you do not forgive, your heavenly father will NOT forgive you.
4) Did you commit adultery? fornication? Hebrews tells us: fornicators and adulterers will be judged.
5) Did you murder? Revelation tells us there is no place in heaven for murderers.

Cluny \\In the end, there is to be a new heaven and a new earth. Some will inhabit the new heaven, but most will inhabit the new earth.\\

This is a doctrine of the Jehovah's False Witnesses."

Every religion in the world teaches little bits and pieces, and even large chunks, of what is written in the Word of God. Every major christian religion has taken out little bits and pieces to acheive their own interpretation of the bible. Some religions even have their own entire book - the Catechism and the Book of Mormon to name two - of how the bible should be interpreted. So, to say this doctrine is from this religion or that doctrine is from that religion if frivolous.

Only teach the Words of Christ. Colossians 2:8-10

We are judged by THE LAW OF GOD:
Romans 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law,

James 2:11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
James 2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

Augie although your examples work here in this gods world Holy Scripture tells us how The Father in Heaven will judge mankind

it's easy to comprehend ...by BREAKING Gods Laws often times experience a multitude of things from financial hardship sickness and turmoil in family and other relations

The Father in Heaven is ONLY judging those whom HE has called - MANY are called FEW are chosen ...to live in the world yet be separate and be the first fruits of many 1 Pet 4:17, Matt 22:14, 2Corin 6:17, Rom 8:23, 1Corin 15:23

dozens of times Christ and Apostles COMMAND us to OBEY ...those who are called now are being judged on obedience ...all others will be judged to live a life of obedience during and after the millennium

Augie:

I am not sure where you got your criteria, but some of them make no sense to me. What would God say about you having a church job or a secular job? Wouldn't it make more sense how well you did whatever job God gave you? Were you lazy? Did you work as unto the Lord? Were you rebellious?

I would suggest you watch the video "bema the judgement seat of christ" from Bent Tree Bible Fellowship. It is a one-man drama on a man's visit to the Judgement Seat of Christ. I have the DVD and it is the best motivator to live for Christ every day.

How will God judge people, just like he said he would?

OBEDIENCE.

Look at the life of his son for clues.

\\In the end, there is to be a new heaven and a new earth. Some will inhabit the new heaven, but most will inhabit the new earth.\\

This is a doctrine of the Jehovah's False Witnesses.

Of course, they believe in a second-class jesus who can offer, at best, second-class salvation.

\\At the first resurrection, the dead in Christ shall rise and the living shall be caught up with them. This is when Christ will call his people.

At the second resurrestion, at the end of the thousand years, all the other dead from all of history shall rise and be judged from the Book of Life - according to their works.\\

Since there's no such thing as a literal earthly millennium or a pre-millennial rapture.

In the end, there is to be a new heaven and a new earth. Some will inhabit the new heaven, but most will inhabit the new earth.

At the first resurrection, the dead in Christ shall rise and the living shall be caught up with them. This is when Christ will call his people.

At the second resurrestion, at the end of the thousand years, all the other dead from all of history shall rise and be judged from the Book of Life - according to their works.

There are people who do God's commandments without knowing God or Christ or religion - "good" people relatively speaking.

Blessed are those who rise at the first resurrection.

Whatever might be decided in any debate/discussion about how God will judge or what is considered for a final decision, WE are told to behave in such a manner as those who will be judged under the law of liberty....

James 2:12
"So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty".
