Who are the MANY in the verse?
(Matthew 7:21-23)
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. MANY will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!

The MANY in this passage believed Jesus to be the Son of God, but they did not make Jesus,"LORD".
"All who call upon the name of the Lord will be Saved."
Many call him Lord, but few make him Lord.
Many will perish because of this doctrine of disobedience in which MANY believe is the Truth.

David, all mankind does not mean every single individual. The call spoken of here is sometimes refered to as the "general call" (or the external call). A summons to repentance and faith that is inherent in the gospel message. This call extends to all who hear the gospel. Many hear it, few respond. Those who respond are the "chosen" the Elect. In the Pauline writing, the word "call" usually refers to God's calling extended to the elect, check Romans 8:30.
"Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called, whom He called, these He also justified, whom He justified, these He also glorified"
---MarkV. on 9/12/10


Concerning those who are call, the call of the gospel goes out to all mankind. But out of that call, only few of those called will be saved. "Many are called but few are chosen"
---MarkV. on 9/11/10

Mark
If "all" mankind is called as you say, wouldn't the verse say,
"All are called but few are chosen?"
---David on 9/11/10


David, John 14:21 describes who are the one's who love Him. The only one's that love the Lord Jesus are those who are saved for the lost do not know Christ. These same people that love Him will keep His commandments. And since God knows we are not perfected yet, He also knows we will fail sometimes, but our goal is to do what He wants us to do out of love for Him. That's all that passages teaches. It doesn't teach that if you do His commandments you somehow begin to love Him.
Concerning those who are call, the call of the gospel goes out to all mankind. But out of that call, only few of those called will be saved. "Many are called but few are chosen"

Why will God not choose only the few and not all those who were called?
---David on 9/10/10

Mark
This was meant to say, "Why does God choose only a few from the many that he calls?"
---David on 9/11/10


You are implying that we are saved by works.
---MarkV. on 9/10/10

Mark
I know that it seems that's what I am saying, but no.
God chooses who will and who will not enter into the New kingdom.
Why will God not choose only the few and not all those who were called?
Jesus says that those who will not inherit the New kingdom are those who call him Lord, but do not make him Lord.
Jesus is very clear that Those who can call him Lord, are those who do what he tells them to do.(Luke 6:46)
This is called keeping the commandments of Jesus Christ, the Law of Christ.

Those who keep this law, making Jesus Lord, grow in the favor of God(John 14:21) and it is for this reason that God chooses the few and not the many.
---David on 9/10/10


Hello David, you said,
"They were not chosen and then walked in the ways of the Lord, they walked in the ways of the Lord and were then chosen."
You are implying that we are saved by works.
You are not along David, although many have different ways of expressing that believe. So the better works you do the chances are God will save you. Is there a standard somewhere that says how much works? Or which works? If they were walking in the ways of the Lord, and God chose them, and then they failed, were they unchosen? As we know, not everyone is the same, so what if one walks and is chosen, and he doesn't walk as much as another, will he be unchosen? All come short of the glory of God, does it depend on how short one falls?
---MarkV. on 9/10/10


Mark
"Many are called but few are chosen".
David is an example of one who was chosen by God.
Why did God choose David?

(1 Kings 11:34)
"David my servant's sake, whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my statutes.

Mark
The lives of those who were chosen by a "never changing God" are chronicled throughout the Old Testament.
Why do you think those examples are used by teachers in the New Testament?
All of these people were chosen because they walked in the ways of the Lord.

They were not chosen and then walked in the ways of the Lord, they walked in the ways of the Lord and were then chosen.
---David on 9/7/10


David, no one lost will repent, until the Holy Spirit convicts their hearts of sin. When God draws the lost to Himself, by Grace, He makes them spiritually alive, that is a spiritual supernatural act of God' they will be granted repentance and faith, and He turns them over to Christ, and they will repent and believe by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His works. After his commitment to Christ, he will be baptized as commanded by God. God chooses them, Jesus blood covers their sins, and the Holy Spirit seal's them forever.
"But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).."
---MarkV. on 9/6/10




William Barclay also said in hs autobiography: "I am a convinced universalist. I believe that in the end all men will be gathered into the love of God"

He bases this on various teacings of Paul, and also these words of Jesus "I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself" (John 12:32)

Paul refers to ALL Rom .... 11:32. & 1 Cor. 15:22 & 1 Cor. 15:28. 1 Tim 2:4-6

---Cluny on 9/5/10


Mark
You say that Salvation will cause a believer to repent.
I say that it is repentance(walking in the ways of the Lord) that will bring about one's Salvation.

(Acts 2:38) clearly says to Repent and be baptized for the remission of Sin.
Notice that you must repent for the remission of sin.
You can not "Repent" without works.
If Salvation comes before repentance, How do you "get saved" without the remission of sin?



---David on 9/5/10


David, again I say, that works has nothing whatsoever to do with saving us. God saves us. Works is the evidence of been saved. And no amount of works is given, for some may do many and others not as many. And another thing, this works we see with our eyes is not what judges man, God judges man by his actions. His decisions in life. If a brother or sister is not doing good works, God will chastize them. Some more then others. If a person is not been chastize in life by God, he is not one of His Children.
The rest you wrote is correct. It is through faith in Christ that we do what we do for the Lord and others, and the reason He gets the glory. If it was our own works then we would get the glory. Without Christ we can do nothing.
---MarkV. on 9/5/10


We are saved not by our works.--MarkV. on 9/4/10

And I agree!
But, you teach that works has nothing to do with one's salvation, and that is w-r-o-n-g!!

This is what Jesus taught about works.
(Matthew 7:21)
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
What is the will of God?
To believe in the one he sent.
What does that mean, to "believe"?
(Matthew 7:24)
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock."

Christ's word, put into practice, is called Faith!
It is through this Faith, that you are saved.
---David on 9/4/10


David, you are complicating the answers here. I said we are saved not by our works. I did not say anything about Christs works on the Cross. Please get it right. Look David, I see where you are coming from. You believe in the works of man just like so many. Nothing I can do about that. I believe the good works we do after been save are because of God in our lives. If we didn't have God we would be pretty bad, some more then others. I also believe that anything without faith in Christ is sin. I leave you peace.

It does not say that works saves anyone, it says that those who are saved will do the works of Christ.
---MarkV. on 9/2/10

Mark
What do you call the works of Christ?
Do you, in the church that you attend, call these works faith?
---david on 9/3/10


David, I do not know what Christmas has anything to do with what we were discussing. And why you even ask me,
---MarkV. on 9/3/10

The reason?
James faced the same teachings in the Church.(James 2)
There were those who thought as you, that to believe meant they had to do nothing, This they called faith.

The devil believes in God also, yet he will not be in Heaven with us, will he?

What's the difference between the saved and the unsaved who believe Jesus Christ is the son of God?
Those who will be saved, make Jesus their Lord, and To make him Lord they must live in obedience to him.
---david on 9/3/10


David, you said,

"Mark,
Do we not show our love for the Lord by keeping the Law of Christ?(John 14:21"


Of course we do. We want to do everything we can to please Christ. But we are Christians. The lost do not love Christ, why should they want to do anything for someone they do not love? Heck, they do not feel they are in rebellion against Him, they don't know Him, they are happy sinning against God, they need an awakening of the Spirit which only God can do.

Does one need to do anything to gain Eternal Life?

(Matthew 19:25-28)
On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?"
"What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?"
He answered: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and Love your neighbor as yourself."
"You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live."

Mark,
Do we not show our love for the Lord by keeping the Law of Christ?(John 14:21)



---David on 9/3/10


David, I do not know what Christmas has anything to do with what we were discussing. And why you even ask me,
"So you believe one can save themselves simply by believing that Jesus is the Son of God?"
No one can save themselves David. You must not be following my post in other blogs. Not one person has ever saved themselves. We are save by God's Grace through faith, and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
---MarkV. on 9/3/10


Sandra, I'm glad you have been following what I said. The passage you gave is not talking about people having more power then Christ in John 14:12, "greater works than these he will do" In fact no one has more power then God (Christ). So it cannot be in power. Jesus conforted them with the means that would provide them with the necessary resources to accomplish their task without His immediate presence which they had come to depend. What they would do greater was to become witnesses to mankind through the power of the Holy Spirit not to heal are restore limps or bring people from the dead, but to bring salvation, in numbers they could reach out to more people then Jesus could do in the short time He was with them.
---MarkV. on 9/3/10


//When Jesus taught: (John 14:12)
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also"//

MarkV, you don't believe that either. The works Jesus did was heal the sick, cast out demons, and raise the dead. It is obvious from previous posts I have read on this site that you don't believe that we are to really do these works and greater for you seek to discredit anyone who does do them, even when their testimonies bear witness to them.

---Pedant on 9/2/10

"Charles Stanley teaches that to believe in Jesus (John 3:16) does not require that one needs to any works.

Even the Churches today need money to help them continue with the cost of operating the facilities. Missionaries need money not only to travel but to build places where Christians can meet.
---MarkV. on 9/1/10

It sounds like some folks are really complaining about giving money for church work. While their concerns might be valid, I think that complaining is just "wasting time". Life is too short for that.

I've settled this issue by placing my "trust" in God and asking HIM what I should give to. That way, whether or not the Preacher, Pastor, Teacher commands me to give, I know who really guides my giving: Father GOD. I freely inform others about whether or not GOD wants me to give at a service.
---Augie on 9/1/10


David 2:
You also gave Matthew 10:8, and took what Jesus said to the Apostles and used it to proof your attack on Stanley. Sure the message is free, and Jesus didn't want them to take any money, He would provide for them. But did He tell the Church not to ask for any money? I freely give the message of the gospel myself but I cannot reach what many good pastors can without money. Even the Churches today need money to help them continue with the cost of operating the facilities. Missionaries need money not only to travel but to build places where Christians can meet.

Anon, if you want proof Myles Munroe and Rod Parsley are FALSE TEACHERS, (2 Peter Chapter Two), here it is.

They both are of the Word of Faith Movement who take GOD'S TRUTHS, and turn them into SATAN'S LIES, Romans 1:18-32.

They claim share the GOSPEL, but are not sharing the GOSPEL OF CHRIST JESUS, Galatians 1:6-10.

They tell people if they want to receive a blessing from GOD, they must SOW A SEED (send money) to their ministry. They will never, ever tell people SOWING SEED has absolutely nothing to do with sending money, Mark 4:13-20, and they will never, ever share what is written in Acts 8:20-24.

They claim to be people of God, but the truth is they are BASTARDS AND SERVANTS SATAN, Hebrews 12:4-8.

The parable has nothing to do with DOCTRINE. It is about being prepared for the groom's return. The oil is not the HS or teaching, it is oil.

Let me give you a secret about the parables of Jesus. They all had only one meaning or moral lesson. Jesus told them to illustrate the point he wanted to make. He told them to the people who did NOT understand truth. Jesus did not tell parables to hide profound truth not revealed in any other way.

A virgin represents one who is pure.
There is but one way for a sinner to be made pure, and that is by the blood of Jesus Christ.

These Ten Virgins were all baptized into the name of Christ, but not all were to be saved.
The question is why?

The Wise Virgins are those who put their Trust in God and are taught by the Holy Spirit and they followed the teachings of God.

David, can I ask what you have against Charles Stanley? ---MarkV. on 8/30/10

Charles Stanley is a False teacher.
The teachings of God are meant to save, are they not?
Charles claims that his salvation teachings come from God, and yet he sells them.

To put it into perspective, lets say that you have the cure for Cancer.
Your Mother whom you love, has this Cancer.
Would you sell her the cure or would you give it to her?
You would give it to her.
Why?
Because you Love her.

Charles claims that he loves you also, but his actions do not quite match his claims, now do they?
Charles chooses to sell that which he claims is meant to save.

Did any of Gods teachers in the Bible do this?

I am not a preacher person and never have been. I enjoyed several of my expastors sermons and those of the Woman Pastor where my Grandparents attended when I was a child,but never could I say any Pastors were my favorite. In fact I have enjoyed quite a few women ministers messages/teachings at Women Aglow Fellowship meetings and retreats. I learned early that I will not agree 100% with any Preachers sermons and to try the sermons of all preachers by how well they line up with the Word of God. I find very,very few on TV I will even listen to.

David, can I ask what you have against Charles Stanley, who has spend his whole life teaching God's Word? What enjoyment do you get demeaning a pastor who is not perfect, for no one is?

It seems that Ignatius and cluny also get joy in attacking Catherine no matter what she says. Is this the teachings of the Eastern Orthodox? Are both of you the example of what is righteous in the Eastern Orthodox? Are unbelievers lining up to join your great teachings from the Eastern Church because if they do, they will be like you? They won't have to be born again, all they have to do is convert to Eastern teachings and they too can make fun of others.

RABBI SAUL!!!

Once I heard Dr. Stanley distinguish between the Holy Spirit and something he called the "very Spirit of God."

I've yet to figure out what he meant by that. I hope it was merely a half-formed thought that escaped correction when he proofread his sermon.
---Cluny on 8/29/10

I notice these "errors" from time-to-time in preacher's sermons. At churches, On Television, Printed in books, etc.

If I run across an "error", I pause, and try to "make sense" of things at that point.

The "Holy Spirit" and "very Spirit of God" would be the SAME thing in my vocabulary. Yes, Dr. Stanley made an "error" there!

Teachers like Charles Stanley are mentioned in one of the Lords parables.
He is known as an Oil Merchant in the parable of the Ten Virgins.

What is an Oil Merchant?
The afore mentioned Oil in the parable, is the Truth which we receive through the Gift of the Holy Spirit(Lamp).
That truth provide light in the darkness, so that we may find our way.

Charles Stanley is one who claims that his teachings (Oil) comes from the Holy Spirit.
Charles will sell you that Oil, which is meant to be free to those who seek the truth, in your local bookstore.

Cluny>>>the Holy Spirit and the very spirit of God is the same....For goodness sakes, get real, won't you?

To be honest, Charles Stanley is the only person I have seen on these "SO CALLED CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORKS" who teaches "SOUND BIBLICAL DOCTRINE".

I remember once he gave a message from 2 Peter Chapter Two.

To this very day I am surprised these networks still air Charles Stanley's programs, because they tend to suspend the airing of programs of those who share God's Truths, in the true context which they are written.

Did you listened to him via television or did you hear his voice in your head?

Saint John Chrysostom (347-407AD), Archbishop of Constantinople. Love him! He was a eloquent speaker filled with spiritual wisdom.

However, Saint Augustine the Blessed, Saint Basil the Great, Saint Cyril of Alexandria, Saint Bede the Venerable, Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, and Saint Gregory Palamas are in the top of my list when it comes to exegetical commentaries/homiletics. I am now awaiting with joy Saint Cyril of Alexandria's Commentary on the Gospel of John. Heard that it is very enlightening.

Yes! My husband!
---KarenD on 8/29/10


Nope, but I do appreciate our pastor. There are times when I have gotten what I found that God gave me, and then he preached it. And he is good with talking about how to be corrected so we are loving the way Jesus wants. And, in the church I am sharing with, I have people who I would say are examples to me, of how to be real with God and how to relate with people. So, we have people who live and show the meaning of God's word, and not just someone who gives the message.
