Kathr, that is just one of your problems, you read everything out of Context, you put your own meaning. Everything means the same to you no matter the Context.
When the Bible concerning salvation says, "all the world" we know its not every single person. The Bible is, in fact, clear that Christ's death was intended to save "all" in a variety of context. It is intended to save persons from all classes, rich or poor, slave or free, king or peasant, man or woman, Jew or Greek (Gal. 3:28: 1 Tim. 2:1,6:) In was intended to save "all" kindreds, tribes, tongues, and nations (Rev. 5:9). But never to save every single individual since many are already in hell. And many more are heading that way also.
---Mark_V. on 10/26/13


Trey, you said Christ died for the whole Christan world while scripture says Jesus died for sinners.

There is no such thing as a CHRISTAN world.

The things you all come up with...teeheehee.

I like the one about the Arminians world and the Calvin world....

Oh, I'll be laughing about that for weeks.

And Markv was so convinced God WANTED everyone in Asia to burn in hell, ( NOT reading further and seeing God sent Paul in a different direction first before sending Paul to Asia,) believing Paul singlehandedly saved first century Calvinists excluding all Asian GENTILES .....that's a BIG teeheehee.
---kathr4453 on 10/26/13


James L, not so when you say:
"Not so. There's a distinction between spirit and body. Jesus DID die for the sins of the whole world, and EVERY person ever alive will be saved - from PHYSICAL death"
The sinful body will die. At the resurrection we receive a new glorified body prepared for heaven or a new body prepared for hell. It is not the same sinful physical body. It died because of sin.
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption." (1 Cor. 15:30). So this flesh body is never saved. Even without sin, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
---Mark_V. on 10/26/13


Want to learn how to tame you tongue? Read and understand Matthew chapter 13, Mark chapter 4, and Luke chapter 8. Write them down on paper yourself. Look at them until you hear what is in the word for you as a believer. Then you will know how to tame your tongue as a believe should be ably to do. If your a believer knowing how to tame your tongue is a promise from God.

"Often Whole world means all mankind." Samuelbb7

That's according to the Arminians - they use that to support their freewill doctrine, which happens to be unbiblical.

For if the "Whole world means all mankind", then you had better read what Christ prayed to the Father, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me, for they are thine." John 17:9

The "world" in John 3:16 according to Christ is "them which thou hast given me, for they are thine". You can "bet your bottom dollar" that the Father didn't give everyone to His Son or hell would be rendered useless.
---christan on 10/25/13




Often Whole world means all mankind.


Jhn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

As for instance here. Limited atonement is not from the Bible. To get it you first have to agree that GOD does not love all mankind and wants to torture some people for all eternity. So he forces them to be lost by with holding salvation from them.

But the bible never says this. So those who believe say the words do not mean what they mean.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/25/13


\\ ...Christ to die for the whole world, His blood would have propitiated for the sins of the whole world and everyone would be going to heaven. \\
---Mark_V. on 10/23/13

Not so. There's a distinction between spirit and body. Jesus DID die for the sins of the whole world, and EVERY person ever alive will be saved - from PHYSICAL death

That doesn't mean everyone goes to heaven, it means we'll all be resurrected - some to judgment, some to life. As in Adam all die, so in Christ ALL will live.

Compare Romans 5 to 1Cointhians 15. They are speaking of physical resurrection

"saved" has a MUCH broader meaning then the Reformers understood
---James_L on 10/25/13


Mark V, good answer!

Romans 1:8 - Paul refers to the "whole world" and means the whole Christian world. He does not mean every individual thoughout the world. The non-believers could care less.

1 John 2:2 - John means the sins of the whole elect family of God. If he means the sins of every person in the world and one of these goes to hell after Christ has paid the price for their sins then God is unjust.

1 John 5:19 - John here is refering to the wicked. If he is refering to those born again then the ones born again are lying in wickedness. How much sense does that make???
---trey on 10/25/13


Cluny, there is only one explanation.....Markv cannot read and comprehend what one is saying, feeling he needs to argue with himself, thinking he is making some point with himself

If he can't see how simple that was, he can't properly read and understand scripture. He can't even understand his own words. Then argues against his very own words thinking he is CORRECTING YOU.

I feel sorry for his wife and kids. How awful to have to live with and put up with a know it all, all the live long day, and have everything you say, challenged and CORRECTED. The fact that he is online 24/7 shows total neglect, or else they left him, and this is all he had left.
---kathr4453 on 10/25/13


\\Cluny, says,
"In other words, when the Bible says, "the whole world," it DOESN'T mean "the whole world."
Do I understand you properly?"
*******
No, you don't. When the Bible says, "the whole world" it does" not always" mean every single individual\\

Can someone else explain to me the difference between these two statements?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 10/25/13




The whole world means the whole world. Once saved, Christians are no longer a part of this world. So there is no scripture that insists you have to read the text to determine if whole world means whole world or part of it.

Jesus said MY Kingdom is not of this world. We have been translated out of this present evil world into the kingdom of his dear Son. We are CRUCIFIED to this world and this world to us.

If perhaps Markv understood this, he would know how to properly interpret scripture.
---kathr4453 on 10/25/13


Cluny, says,
"In other words, when the Bible says, "the whole world," it DOESN'T mean "the whole world."
Do I understand you properly?"

No, you don't. When the Bible says, "the whole world" it does" not always" mean every single individual. It might mean all mankind. Or all nations in the world, or a part of the world. Most important is the context.
We are told "the deceiver of the whole world" does not mean the whole world. (1 John 5:19) we are told,
"We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in the evil one" If the author meant every individual of mankind, then he and those to whom he wrote were also in the evil one.
---Mark_V. on 10/25/13


Kathr, calling us morons does not change the word of God. The Truth. Only those through faith in Christ Jesus are going to heaven. It does not matter from what nation or country they are from. You want all Israel to go to heaven, when millions have died in their sins already. The descendants of Abraham who are of the Spirit will go to be with God. You are of the flesh. Those of the flesh have no hope. According to the New Testament believing Jews and believing Gentiles are now one. The two combined are "Abraham's seed" (Gal. 3:29). This is the Israel of God (Gal. 6L15,16).
---Mark_V. on 10/25/13


Markv, it has nothing to do with whether I am Jew or Not. Salvation is OF the Jews religion. ALL types and shadows are shown us through Israel.

Why do you think it has to do with anything personal.

NOT everyone in Israel was saved, however EVERY YEAR the atonement was for all the sin of ALL the people. But it was a yearly practice. TODAY, Jesus blood is shed for ALL the sin of ALL the people once and for ALL. Not only for US, that is JEWS and or saved, but the Sin of the whole world,= you markv, a GENTILE and or lost.
---kathr4453 on 10/24/13


You need to tell yourself and Christan, Abraham's physical descendants are not going to heaven ...since JACOB represents the PHYSICAL descendants of Israel.

But we know many Jews are in fact Saved. the Gospel is to the Jew first and to Markv second.



You both are MORONS!
---kathr4453 on 10/24/13


Kathr, you do not like limited atonement for Israel because you claim you are Jew. But you are wrong. You must a descendant of Abraham in the flesh. Those are not going to heaven. Sorry. I did not make up the rules.
Only the descendants in the Spirit are going to heaven. "There are not all Israel who are of Israel" (Rom. 9:6). There is an "Israel of the flesh" (1 Cor. 10:18) and an "Israel of God" (Gal. 6:16) made up of Jewish people and Gentiles who believe in the Messiah. So salvation is limited to only those who believe in the Messiah. The others are excluded.

Remember when Paul and Silas had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the Word in Asia in (Acts 16:6)? Many of those in Asia, died in their sins. The gospel was limited only to the others. The gospel went where the Holy Spirit wanted it to go.

---Mark_V. on 10/24/13

MarkV you seen to think that Paul and Silas were the ONLY ONES preaching the Gospel. We see by those 7 letters in Revelation that the Gospel was in fact preached in Asia and it appears Paul even established some of those.

SO WRONG AGAIN Markv. MY how YOU LOVE to distort truth.

Acts 19:26
Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:

Thank you Paul for persuading Gentiles to turn from their gods to ALMIGHTY God.
---kathr4453 on 10/24/13


was the atonement in Israel limited to only certain Jewish people? NO NO NO. therefore no such thing as limited atonement, since it has never been taught in scripture or applied in any way. All OT was a shadow/type of the REAL THING TODAY.

It was for ALL the sins of ALL the people.

Christ's blood was sufficient to cover sins of all people for all time.
2 Cor 5:14-15, "...if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all,.."
1 Tim 2:5-6 "..Christ Jesus, Who gave himself a ransom for all.."
For the blood of Christ to be applied, we must have faith.
Phil 3:8-9 "..I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith .."
Christ's sacrifice cleanses ONLY ones who believe He died and rose again, but the sacrifice is available to ALL people for sins of all people.
---michael_e on 10/24/13


Cluny, I don't really know how you can question the limited atonement. Is everyone going to heaven? Of course not. Heaven is limited to only those who are born of the Spirit. Remember when Jesus told that disciples to only go to the Lost sheep of Israel? It was limited to only them. Many Gentiles died in their sins. Remember when Paul and Silas had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the Word in Asia in (Acts 16:6)? Many of those in Asia, died in their sins. The gospel was limited only to the others. The gospel went where the Holy Spirit wanted it to go.
---Mark_V. on 10/24/13


Cluny, in order to argue with me you say,
"1 John 2:2
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
How does this fit in with your pet doctrines?"
Cluny, If you are concluding that the whole world means every single person then you cluny are teaching and proving Universalism, for Christ would have paid for the sins of every single person. And you Cluny would be teaching a false doctrine, not a pet-doctrine for pets have no doctrines, only humans have false doctrines.
---Mark_V. on 10/24/13


Here's another verse for you, MarkV:

1 John 2:2
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

How does this fit in with your pet doctrines?

\\"He sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10). if it was the will of God for Christ to die for the whole world, His blood would have propitiated for the sins of the whole world and everyone would be going to heaven. And as we know, that is not true.\\

Why didn't you go on to verse 15, MarkV?

Is it because the WHOSOEVER in this verse contradicts your limited atonement doctrine?

---Cluny on 10/23/13


markv, are you calling God's Words a lie? there can be of no other explanation for you not believeing Christ died for the sin of the whole world.
---shira4368 on 10/23/13


God did not sent His Son to die for the whole world. If He did, then the whole world is saved. Here is the will God:
"He sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10). if it was the will of God for Christ to die for the whole world, His blood would have propitiated for the sins of the whole world and everyone would be going to heaven. And as we know, that is not true.
Your theology of free will is a fake. Remember you believe Satan is in control of all things on earth, and gave a great amen to Steven for saying that. In your theology, it is up to Satan who will be saved on earth since he is in control of all things, he would want you to believe in what you teach, this way the blind can continue into hell.
---Mark_V. on 10/23/13


trav, why did God send His Son to die for the whole world. now if that isn't love then you tell me what is? a simple little bible verse says. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. everyone has read john 3:16. sounds pretty clear to me. vs 17 For God sent not His Son to condemn the world but that the world thru Him might be saved. still pretty clear don't you think?

\\God does not listen to unsave sinners. \\

So, when in your sins and unsaved state you cried out to God to have mercy upon you and save you, did He hear you or not, MarkV?

---Cluny on 10/22/13


Hi Shira,

Let's take a look at some scripture:
Joh8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Now please explain to me where Christ had love towards those men. It sounds to me like they hated him and didn't have a whole lot of love for them either.
---trey on 10/22/13


markv, I will tell you again, God spoke to my heart when I got saved. now if God don't hear sinners, there is no way a sinner can get saved. whether you believe it or not God does not hear sinners except for salvation. I am not stupid concerning biblical things.
---shira4368 on 10/22/13


Shira, unbelievers do not make a choice for Christ. The Bible clearly tells us. Jesus also. You are saying the opposite. God does not listen to unsave sinners.
"Now we know that God does not hear sinners," Those the blind man was talking did not understand . God had just opened his eyes. He continued and said, "But if anyone is a worshipper of God and does His will, He hears him" God hears those who worship Him and do His will. Unbelievers do not worship God nor do His will. God does not hear those others. In fact (Rom. 1:18-21) tells us the wrath of God is revealed against them. They are condemned already, for they are descendants of Adam.
No one can come before God without Christ as His Mediator.

---shira4368 on 10/22/13


Carla, you say,
" The scripture declares chose ye this day who you will serve???
Is that not giving mankind a choice?"
And all mankind has a choice whom they will serve. And Jesus said,
"If God were you Father you would love Me" Only those who belong to the Father love Christ. How can an unbeliever make a choice for Christ if he doesn't belong to God the Father? Jesus also said,
"Why do you not understand My speech? because you are not able to listen to My word, you are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do." They do not understand, and also they are unable to listen to Jesus words. The reason is they are of their father the devil.
---Mark_V. on 10/22/13


The scripture declares chose ye this day who you will serve???

Is that not giving mankind a choice?

The thing is with this scripture is that it goes hand in hand with obedience, which means if you have not overcome the things in which separate you from righteousness, you will die and go to an certain death, so the question should also come with the following understanding, its not really up for a debate it is really a warning, since no wrong came from Christ's mouth!
---Carla on 10/22/13


Shira, but you are not defending God's Word. You are arguing against it. Jesus said, that salvation with man is impossible, and you teach, that salvation with man is possible if he exercises his own free will. Paul says, there is no one who seeks after God, because there is none who understands, but you teach, unbelievers seek Christ and found Christ, with their own free will. You also suggest with your theology, that Jesus is hoping and waiting if you will chose Him, but if you don't want to you don't have to. It is the right of an unbeliever.

Have someone cut it off. Have someone cut his head off. Have some put him in a coma forever. So you are right, a man can tame his tongue in so many ways.
James 3:8) says,
"But no man can tame the tongue, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison" Taming the tongue in the context means, no man can do it. What you have proven is that it is possible by all the means I put down. But that is not what the passage is saying.

If we as a nation don't stop with the bragging! No man can tame the tongue without Divine grace and assistance. Curses, lies, boastings, and revelings. Revelings: work of the flesh[ Gal. 5:21]. of special interest is the association revelry and idolatry [Exod. 32:6, 1 Cor. 10:7]. Boisterous, merrymaking, or noisy partying. Don't bring out the horns when your enemies are taken down. Never brag, boast, celebrate when your enemies are brought down.

Very often, before I submit anything here, I form my response as a word document. It is much easier to read and re-read and then edit etc. when on a big screen rather than in this small box.

Not only do I notice typing errors but I often think of better ways of phrasing certain sentences than my original intention had been. It is always wise to not submit until we have read our own response several times.

Some Q & A websites allow entries to be edited after submission but as this facility is not offered here it is wise to take our time before submitting our words.

Our typing fingers need to be tamed just as much as our tongues do.

So, the last thing I told him before he left was:

You're always welcome here!

If we read all of James 3 to get context, we see it refers to those who teach from scripture.

And note the example it uses in James 3:9-12.
Doth a fountain (Christians) send forth at the same place sweet water (love/grace) and bitter (judgment/condemnation through the law)?

We need to be careful on what we preach as we shall receive the stricter judgement if we mix works of the law with grace, in our preaching.

We cannot mix grace with works of the law. That is to be lukewarm.

Rom 11:6 if by grace, then it is no longer of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace, otherwise work is no longer work

"No Man"can tame the tongue. There is one thing we need to remember we are no longer just"man"we are reborn children of God with his Spirit within to help us resist temptation and control our flesh that we do not sin. With the help of the Holy Ghost we most certainly can tame our tongue as long as we walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. If we don't we are failing an important part of the change we are suspose to make when we are buried with Christ in Baptism and arise a new creature in Christ. Again walk in the Spirit,living examples of God's light within us to shine in darkness,we will not fulfill the temptations of the flesh. God within us helps us be overcomers not violaters of his ways,we'll be what he wants us to be.

That is why I created a superhero named Flame-Tongue. When ever you want to say something that you should not just say Flame Tongue and hold out your hand like you are giving a speech of some kind. You will laugh and forget what you were wanting to say. As for an evil villian his name is Ice Toe.

Even Christians get angry and say things they don't mean. Its human nature. To judge somebody for not taming their tongue isn't ethical {esspecially if a person is bi polar mental or demonized} The Bible states be angry but do not sin.

It is truly difficult humanly to control the tongue all the time. I think the urge to speak some untimely, inaccurate, unnecessary or wrong things is a temptation from the evil one. This is why we hardly make such mistakes at moments we are very focussed on the Lord.

We all have trouble at some point in our lives with that little sliver of fire. It is dangerous,indeed. Sometimes we mean to say some things and sometimes things just slip out. But we must think before we speak. But that still does not tame the tongue. It is a part of human makeup. Something most people never really master. No matter how careful we are. The bible is right.

Donna5535 Yes so true,God's power in our hearts and lives is the only way to tame the tongue. Maybe thats the reason God's Word tells us to pray without ceasing and praise continuely,by so doing we are keeping the Spirit awake in our hearts and giving no room to slip into old habits and sins.

Elena, Everyone has trouble, and no one is exempt. I believe the passage gives you the answer. "No man can tame the tongue"
There is none who can do it all the time. Not even those on line who claim they are sinless. No man by his own powers can tame the tongue, Only God, by His own power can do this (Acts 2:1-11). We are reminded over and over about our conduct, (v. 13-16) is the way we should conduct and the way we should not.

I expect everyone has. (Even Cluny.)
CN blogs are a great place to practice taming the tongue, since many here are quite contentious.

It should be easier here than in real time conversation, because we can take plenty of time between preview and submit. In some cases, I've found, a lot of time is needed. It takes self-discipline to wait and consider. But remember, selp-discipline (called "temperance" by KJV,) is part of the fruit of the Spirit.

Controlling the tongue is a problem, however, I find that here it's sometimes hard to control my fingers....type,type,type...when I should cut the computer off, walk way for a spell, then respond later. Yep, I'd say our words,written or spoken, can cause more harm than good way toooo often.:-{

The tongue a device for praise and a device for cursing. A device to lift up and a device for tearing down. If we could only learn. Things that need to be said and things that do not need to be said. Who can tame the ferocious beast. God gave you two ears so you should listen twice as much as speak. Especially sometimes on CN when we only have half the story.
---Scott on 6/21/11


I think we all have except Cluny maybe..lol. Seriously, the scriptures tells us, "Out of the abundance of the Heart, the mouth speaks."

So if you have hate in your heart, you will speak negative things. If you have God's love flowing through you, you will speak edifying things. If you are saved and still have problems with your tongue, the bible tell us, "By the Spirit, we are putting to death the deeds of the flesh."

"So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God." (James 1:19-20)

It used to be you could hear me anywhere in a room . . . over everyone else. I was the donkey that needed to get hit over the head with a two-by-four, so I'd get a clue. And relating and listening is much more interesting and challenging (c: much less lonely (c:

"submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:21)

"in the fear of God" > "swift to hear" whatever God puts in mind while sharing with people and being sensitive to God, at the same time > this helps give self-control.
