Yes, she and I are the only ones that are saved, in family.
---pat on 2/5/13


pat I believe you had a wonderful grandmother.sounds like she is with Christ now. I never had a grandmother. I did have my mother's mother but she didn't come around unless she needed something.
my other grandmother died in 1945 with blood poison. my mom's mother got kicked out of my aunts house because she was too old to babysit so my mom took her in and loved her until she died in 1974. I did have a Godly mom and dad that I still cherish.
---shira4368 on 2/5/13


I have a quick answer for that one! My Grandmother. I would ask her what year did she get saved in and her experience in it. what it was like for her. Questions that I do regret not asking her. However, At that time I was young and lost. I do remember around about the time her conversion, because she was going through the house crying while she was listening to gospel music as if her heart was broken. I must had been about 10 or 11 years old. In my 20s and 30s, I never asked. She died.

I would like to talk to prophet Elijah and asked him how was it living in the wilderness and how has he attained deeper faith in God.
I would like him to share his struggles as he live on a daily basis being fed by God personally.
---mj on 2/1/13


I would really like to sit down and chat with all of the apostles, especially Peter, John and Paul. I would love to hear them speak of Christ and what it was like to walk and talk with him in the flesh on a daily basis. I would love to hear them recount Christ's words and the miracles they witnessed. I guess we will get to visit with these saints and a multitude more on that final day! Best of all will be seeing Christ!!!

Lord bless you all.

markv, the reason I like David is is just like all of us. his flesh is weak just like many christians but we know God will punish those who do what David did. Job was very unique and I don't know many that is that solid in the faith.
---shira4368 on 1/7/13


Sis. Shira, King David is a very interesting person in Scripture. Most of the individuals God chose to use were not good people to begin with, with the exception of Job. Wow, he really stood fast on his faith. The things that happened to him were terrible, yet he stood firm in his faith of God. That kind of faith is very special. Not many today would stay firm if those things happened to them.
---Mark_V. on 1/7/13


I would like to sit and talk to King David. He endured the sins of the flesh even tho he was chosen to rule. He spent many days praying for restoration and God did restore him but he lost his son and had many heartaches. He reminds me of christians today who are tempted with evil and some give in.
---shira4368 on 1/4/13


King David was no slouch. He had some serious issues, messed up a lot of things, yet pleased God so much, that He promised his heirs would rule over Israel to end of the ages.

This heart, this attitude, that no matter what I do, no matter how bad it gets, no matter the trouble I cause, I will go to God, the Lifter of my head, and plead for holy spirit.

This man astounds me, with his commitment to faith, desire to dwell with God, ready to admit failure, still pursuing after God.

Abraham may be my faith-father, but David is my faith-brother.

Tell me David, of your deeds, and life of faith. I will never get enough.
---Phil on 1/4/13


J. Marc, you said to me:

"
Mark V,
i know what you are doing,i can see that we will never come to a CONSENSUS !"
.

On the point of Christmas, you and I will never agree. The reason is, there is no law against anyone celebrating the birth of Christ. If you showed one law against it, I will read the context to see if you are right. You made a new law against that, not God. You cannot go around making Laws for everyone. Who knows what you will come out with next?
We might agree on other matters of faith, but not this one.
---Mark_V. on 12/27/12




J. Marc, you don't know what I am talking about let along know what I am doing. Man did not fall because of Eve been decieved.
Man is fallen because of Adam. I don't remember the serpent deceiving Adam. I don't even think he talked to him.
"Therefore, as through one man's offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men resulting in justification of life" (Rom. 5:18).
One man J. Marc, Adam.
The only agenda here is the Truth for the glory of God.
---Mark_V. on 12/23/12


Mark V,
i know what you are doing,i can see that we will never come to a CONSENSUS !

My opinion does not matter, The real God's [YA'S] matters!

Almighty Yahwah,MAY MY PEACE RETURN BACK TO ME! In the name of Yashua, Amen

YOUR answer is in the passages!
Rom.5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Eph.5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
---jmarc on 12/21/12


MARK V, i know what you are doing!

Satan caused the fall of man through the the practice of the dialectic.

YOU are doing this MARK V! Eve tells the Serpent that God has commanded that of the tree in the midst of the garden, that they "shall not eat of" it. That is the thesis.

Then Satan offers an opposing opinion (the antithesis)isn't the Word of God, telling Eve about the benefits of eating the forbidden fruit.

Eve joins the two views and there is the synthesis - the fruit is "good food," "pleasant to the eye" and will "make one wise."

Through Adam and Eve's REASONING, God's eternal truth was reasoned away, and the curse of death replaced the gift of eternal life.
---jmarc on 12/21/12


J. Marc, don't leave things up in the air without an explanation. you answered that my answer was interesting and then put down some passages. Was it interesting right or wrong? You never said. If you have a question, I will do my best and give you a respectful answer.
Even though you condemned me for celebrating the birth of our Messiah, and even prayed for me in front of everyone for sinning against God, I still left you peace. I though we could move on to other questions.
---Mark_V. on 12/21/12


Aka, it is not my doctrines but the doctrines of Scripture. You asked me about Judas. Judas and all those people who spit on Him, torchered Him, beat Him, betrayed Him, crucified Him did what was in their hearts, sin, for they hated Him. God did not make them. But here is the Truth why this happened,

"For of a truth in this city against Thy holy Servant Jesus, whom Thou didst anoint, "both Herod and Pontius Pilate, and the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together, "to do whatsoever Thy hand and Thy counsel foreordained to come to pass" (Acts 4:27,28).
God forordained every single things that happened. Even though He was not the One doing the sinning.
---Mark_V. on 12/21/12


"Disobedience is sin. Was the cause for him sinning God's doing? It had to be, because God knew if He gave him a choice he would sin, even though God didn't make him sin. All working together within the plan of God.
---Mark_V. on 12/20/12"

Interesting!

Rom.5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Eph.5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

Aka,
"now I got him cornered."

mark_v, that was not my intention. i was trying to follow your reasoning considering your doctrines.

but the things that we falsely accuse others of are usually what we are guilty of ourself.

nevertheless, your logic that is based on your opinion is circular.
---aka on 12/19/12


Aka, I had a discussion with someone concerning Adam. I suggested Adam was not perfect. He was without sin, but not perfect. Only God is perfect. He insisted that when God created everything it was perfect but I said it was not perfect but good. Something perfect never fails, as God. Everything else fails in some way or another. Something inside of Adam made him fail, and what made him fail was God giving him a choice otherwise he would have stayed good always. God gave him a choice, sin or not sin, which means obey or not obey. Disobedience is sin. Was the cause for him sinning God's doing? It had to be, because God knew if He gave him a choice he would sin, even though God didn't make him sin. All working together within the plan of God.
---Mark_V. on 12/20/12


Aka,
"now I got him cornered."
Let me explain why I wanted to speak to Adam
Adam was a person without a sin nature, not like us, we sin because we have a sin nature. I wanted to ask Adam what he felt that compelled him to sin. He must have felt something so I was curious. God did not force or caused him to sin.
That he sinned was already in the plan of God, God is Omniscient who knows all things, God knew if He gave man the liberty to choose he would sin.
God knew he would sin because we are told Jesus Christ was foreknown as a sacrifice for sin before the foundation of the world. God doesn't make anyone sin, they sin because they have a sin nature. Adam didn't, so he must have felt something and I was curious.
---Mark_V. on 12/19/12


mark_v

according to you, that means that adam really did not have a choice, yet you keep saying he did. so let's go back to your questioning of adam:

"I would talk to Adam and ask him why...when he had it so good. ... Only one thing he was told not to do, and he disobeyed. So I would ask him what made him do it?"

why would you ask what made him do it when you already know? his "choice" was predetermined.

i don't think you understand your own theology. i don't see how you can.

Aka, you now say,
"according to you man should not be held responsible for the fall of man. adam had no choice. according to you isn't God the real culprit?"
All descentants of Adam are cursed because of Adam's disobedience. God didn't have to curse mankind, He could have forgiven Adam, but didn't. Everyone is responsible for their choices. That Adam would choose to disobey and that God would put the curse was already in the plan of God. That's why Christ was foreknown as a sacrifice for sin before the foundation of the world. If God didn't want for Adam to disobey, He would not had given him the command to not eat of the tree. Everything has a reason and a purpose in the plan of God even sin.
---Mark_V. on 12/18/12


mark...that was not what i was addressing and neither were you.

i have been on here for about three years and i keep adding side points which allow others to deflect and ignore the real point. now address the other part of my response.

according to you man should not be held responsible for the fall of man. adam had no choice. according to you isn't God the real culprit?
---aka on 12/17/12


Aka, you said,

"(btw, the serpent tempted eve. he did not hold a "gun" to her head and make her. it says so in scriputre: "he deceived me and I ate." she did not say "the devil forced me and I ate." nobody can say the devil made me do it. especially from your view, isn't EVERYTHING predestined?)".
Eve believed the lie and sinned. But that's not the reason man is fallen. Man is fallen because of Adam, not Eve. Adam was not deceived by anyone. God knew he would disobey and that He would put the curse, and also provide a Redeemer in (Gen. 3:15), for we are told that Christ was "foreknown indeed as a sacrifice for sin before the foundation of the world." (1 Peter 1:20).
---Mark_V. on 12/17/12


---Mark_V. on 12/14/12

I will never know why "why" is in a calvinist's vocabulary. isn't everything predestined?

are you saying you believe there could be other reasons? after all, there should be no question in your mind.

in the deep recesses of your soul, might you be saying that man has another option than your version of predestination?

(btw, the serpent tempted eve. he did not hold a "gun" to her head and make her. it says so in scriputre: "he deceived me and I ate." she did not say "the devil forced me and I ate." nobody can say the devil made me do it. especially from your view, isn't EVERYTHING predestined?)

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was created and placed smack dab in the middle of Paradise for the express purpose of being eaten.

Adam and his wife knew nothing about good and evil. They were ignorant, no more than a beast awaiting it's masters crumbs and attention.

They had innocence, but lacked a conscience. No disease, no lack, no hardship. They had nothing to form opinions and beliefs upon.

Had they not taken of the fruit, the plan of creating man in His image would have stagnated, and instead of His life in us, we would be living on a tree of life, instead of God Himself.
---Phil on 12/15/12


MarkV, Good answer!

My fear is if Adam had not, that I would have.

Thanks be to God for Jesus Christ!!!

Lord bless you dear brother! I always enjoy reading your posts!
---trey on 12/15/12


Bro. Trey, I would talk to Adam and ask him why he took everyone down with him when he had it so good. Everything he needed was given to him. Only one thing he was told not to do, and he disobeyed. So I would ask him what made him do it? he had no sin nature. He could not say the devil made him do it, only Eve could. One simple thing. Stay away from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

---ELENA on 12/11/12
Good point ELENA. It is the same reason we still sin and have hate. Temporary satisfaction or the fear of judgment is NOT sufficent to overcome sin. Sin can only be conquered by the Love of Christ. Even to a person who "seeks after God." See also Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses. All had a crisis of faith and sinned after God revealed himself.

Orthodox tradition gives the Samaritaness the name Photine (Greek) or Svetlana (Slavic). Both names mean "The Enlightened One," because she was enlightened by Christ. She and her family were evangelists and died as martyrs. You can look her up on the Wiki that is Orthodox.

Elena, one thing the Bible does, especially in the Old Testament, is to show how people really are, warts and all.

He had alteady alot of concubines, women! 2Sam.11 he just took " his station in life / He was the King He took Betsheba like she was a junk yard dog! She had no choice!
