Yet, the Tejano's were not the FIRST civilization in Texas. So who did you steal it from?
---kathr4453 on 8/31/13

Truth spoken.

GOD helped the Anglo's fulfill scripture.

Isa_30:17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one, at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.
Jer 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar, The LORD...
Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

LindaH, I assure you, they came over of their own free will ILLEGALLY. If it were in fact God's will, they would have entered legally, and gotten in legally. My ancestors did, all of them.

Markv's religion takes no responsibility for anything they do wrong. WOE to those who call evil good, and good evil. Just that verse alone tells all of us, God is not the author of evil.

They just believed they were above the law. With an answer like that, Markv justifies all evil and wrong as God directing their steps as though it were a good thing as long as it's "his family". Yet if an evil person is drawn away by his own lusts and desires, James clearly tells us it is not GOD doing it.

1 Chronicles 29:17 I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.
---Nana on 8/31/13


MarkV, thats scripture twisting at its finest.

Its quite funny this time, because while trying to add some creedence to your view, you unknowingly shot yourself in the foot. haha

(Proverbs 16:9)

man's (adam:man)
heart (leb:heart,inner man, will)
deviseth (chasab:plan)
his way (derek: road/path)
but the LORD (YHWH)
directeth (kun: establish)
his steps (tsaad: pace/stride)

A man's will plans his path, but YHWH establishes his pace

I hope you are clear on the meaning of this scripture now.
---LindaH on 8/31/13


The story of the Tejano culture is definitely not one of decline. The Tejano population dwindled in relation to the flood of Anglo-Americans who poured into Texas, but the Tejanos and their families remained in the Texas Republic. In fact, the strongest surge that Tejano population experienced was between San Antonio and the Ro Grande after 1836. More significantly, the Tejano culture has been adopted and spread by the Anglo-Americans themselves.

Nice story Markv, but historians say nothing about Tejano's being thrown out. Maybe the really bad ones were.

Yet, the Tejano's were not the FIRST civilization in Texas. So who did you steal it from?
---kathr4453 on 8/31/13




Historically, the Spanish term Tejano has been used to identify different groups of people. During the Spanish Colonial times and pre-Anglo colonization, the term primarily applied to Spanish settlers of the region now known as Texas (first as part of the New Spain and then in 1821 as part of Mexico).[2] During the times of independent south Texas, the term also applied to Spanish-speaking Texans and Hispanicized Germans and other Europeans.[2] In modern times, the term is more broadly used to identify a Texan of Mexican descent. It is also a term used to identify the natives of those "regions settled" by foreigners.

So again Markv, no different than ALL the different cultures who came to the AMERICA'S, north and South.
---kathr4453 on 8/31/13


Kathr, as soon as you are caught in a lie, you back down, thanks to Nana. Your family were foreigners So now you say,
"The question still remains , Did they come of their own free will, or did God force them to come?"
You don't understand God so you ask another questions so that you can proof free will, but you are wrong, God directed the steps of my grand grand parents and my own.
"There are many devices in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord that shall stand" (Prov. 19:21) For
"A man's heart deviseth his way: But the Lord directeth his steps" ((Prov. 16:9). The Lord willed and so directed their steps to come back. There was no free will involved.
---Mark_V. on 8/31/13


I guess you say grand- grand parents where we say Great Grand parents.

But a gentleman would have said, "no, it was my grand grand parents".

Now you want to give us some sob story to cover up your nastiness?

Texas became a state in 1835. So your grand- grand parents were not even born in 1835.

My GREAT Grandfather wasn't even born until 1878 and we're about the same age. So the truth is YEARS AFTER all that happened, (1835 and prior,) THEY WERE BORN and then they were taught the same story like all illegals today are taught, that it's ok to enter ILLEGALLY, because once it belonged to the Mexicans.
They were TAUGHT that they were cheated out of their land.

Did God GIVE THEM THE LAND?
---kathr4453 on 8/31/13


The question still remains , Did they come of their own free will, or did God force them to come? I believe they HEARD from someone that America was great. I believe of their own free will, they stepped out IN FAITH believing what they heard, came to America, without first SEEING IT. So faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

Just like the Gospel. Those who WITNESSED Jesus death and resurrection testified to that fact, also stating He died for all.

Now you say they wanted a BETTER LIFE, had a RIGHT to a better life, and by faith took hold of that new life.

EVERY MAN has a right to a better life, and LEGALLY SO. Jesus made possible a NEW LIFE legally by dying for ALL OUR SIN.
---kathr4453 on 8/30/13


Kathr, you have lied again. I never said my grandfather was illegal, I said my grand grand parents were illegal, and the only reason I said they were illegal is because the state of Texas became a State. They were born in the land which is now Texas when they became a state they were kick-out by the Texans who took over their lands after we help them become a State. The land belonged to us first. My family is all from Texas, we are called Tejanos before the State became a State. Now, your family on the other hand came from another country. My didn't.
---Mark_V. on 8/30/13




why is markv's dad scolded here? I would guess anyone would do what it takes for a better life. we are all too spoiled with our freedom, money, cell phones and don't forget the tv. I have already spent thousands just to live...period. besides that, no one can take the blame for what our parents did. mine weren't perfect and neither am I.
---shira4368 on 8/30/13


Markv, I know others here can too verify you stated your grandfather was illegal, and you discussed it openly. We were discussing illegals now in this country. No one holds that against you.

Why have you again lied? Is it because the question is difficult to answer?


You will be so embarrassed when your own words are posted here verifying you made that statement.
---kathr4453 on 8/30/13


Part 2: I'm not suggesting to break the laws of God or goverment. We are all intitle by God to do for our families what we can to help them. Most of the people who come, come because they want a better life for their families. Otherwise they would stay where they live. America is a country from many nationalities. I do know many make money and send it home, when they could spend the money here, they are still trying to help their families still in the other countries. They should go by the rules, yet many do and still cannot come over unless they come illigal. My own opinion. I know why many complain about illigals. I'm not one, but my grand-grand parents were. What we do know, is that God is in control ---

Was the matter, can't keep your stories up? That's usually the case with liars or the mentally handicapped. Which one is it?
---Nana on 8/30/13


Kathr, you and the rest of the free willers who answer make me laugh. You now lie again by saying something so stupid and rediculous,
"Markv has told us his Grandfather entered America illegally, making MarkV 2 generations later a legal citizen of America"
When have I ever said my grandfather enter America illagally? Never. Such stupid stuff you think of. Now you attack my grandfather. You just don't know what to think of. And all your followers do the same, say stuff that really does not bother me at all. You guys are so much at emnity against God that you will do whatever it takes to slander the messenger. Just like the Jews did. Oh I forgot Kathr you are a Jew.

Mark_V.* Ruben
"But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me," and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand" (John 10:26-28). You are like those guys who didn't believe the words of Jesus. Why? Because you are not of His sheep. Only His sheep believe in Him.

Mark,

It is not a one-time event and then you are his sheep. You have to continue to hear, know and follow him.

"Those who endure to the end will be save."

Those are his sheep..

I think that the predestinationalists likely adhere to their "we don't have a choice" dogma because (in their minds) that shifts the blame for their sins onto God. Thus, they are "saved" no matter how much they disobey God because they are among "the elect". Yet, they still haven't told us just how they know that they are in this group.



---jerry6593 on 8/30/13


I have a question for MarkV. Not to start anything, but to make him think.

Markv has told us his Grandfather entered America illegally, making MarkV 2 generations later a legal citizen of America. Markv, did your Grandfather do what he did of his own free will, OR does God make people break the law? So you believe God practices lawlessness and encourages lawlessness? So then, do you believe all illegals are here because they are not accountable at all for their actions, but all is God's will? So is sending illegals back a slap in God's face?
---kathr4453 on 8/30/13


Samuel, he fears the possibility of the free will of man because someone has brainwashed him into believing that it somehow threatens the sovereignty of God - which is utterly ridiculous. In fact it shows less faith in God to think that He simply CANT allow us to choose our own path because it would interfere with HIS plans.
---LindaH on 8/30/13


Mark how come you believe that GOD is unable to give us free will? Why is GOD trapped into only making us like robots who have no free will?

Also yes you make scripture go against it's plain meaning.

Actually MarkV, I have seen many people give you scripture and then you claim later on that noone has ever done it.

Ive also noticed that when scripture is presented to you, you interpret it looking thru the "God only wants to save some" looking glass (which is erroneous in my opinion). Also you have changed the meaning of simple words so that the scripture bends to support that same preconceived belief.

I do not agree with your doctrine. To me it paints God out to be a monster who enjoys watching some people burn rather than seeing them repent.

Im simply disagreeing with the way some here snap at you.
---Jasheradan on 8/29/13


I' m still waiting for blog title and date Markv. Calling a liar a liar is not calling names, but a fact. You slander and make up lies about people because it is YOU fighting in the FLESH. That IS flesh Markv . When you get flustered, and cannot provide proof of your lies, YOU resort to YOUR FLESH.

God does not LIE through you Markv. You have lied about everyone here, making ridiculous statements we saved ourselves without faith.

You are not of God. Liars have no place in God's Kingdom. Then you whine and cry like a baby when confronted acting like you're the victim, when all you do is victimize others over and over. Everyone sees this but you. PRIDE has truly blinded your eyes. PRIDE never sees themselves the way they are.
---kathr4453 on 8/29/13


Jesheradan, my heart is not hardened. I love the Truth. Calling me names is really all they can muster. The fruits that I see from them are not of faith in Christ. When have you ever seen a brother calling another brother names? There is two reasons I see why they get angry.
1. Because they don't want God to have the right to have mercy on whom He wills. They want that right over God, which really tells us they are still at emnity against God. Meaning, a feeling or condition of hatred or ill will, towards God. That is the condition of the lost.
2. Because they refuse to admit that for years they have been wrong, and so they fight with everything within their flesh. They look for reasons not to believe the Word of God.

Can I make a suggestion?

(Heb 12:14,15)
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled

(Matthew 18:20)
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them

(John 16:23)
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Lets just pray for him and cease from name-calling. That is simply hardening his heart further. Pray and believe God will open his eyes.

Marks, what does that mean.".expecting to get everything if we exercise our free will? "

Everything that is IN CHRIST is mine. The Riches that are IN CHRIST are already mine. I don't expect it...I have it. I received it by FAITH in His Promises. He is a REWARDER of those who diligently seek Him.

If it was MY WILL doing the seeking, so be it. Or are you saying God rewards Himself for seeking Himself. Why then am I rewarded?

This is all you can muster? The same sentences that others make. What a great demonstration of the fruits of your free will salvation that you guys preach.
---Mark_V. on 8/28/13


Kathr, more evidence of your free will salvation, you say its getting so boring and you sure talk a lot. Stop talking and start putting Scripture down to support your views. Talk is cheap anyone can do that. Paul told the Gentile converts "And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed" (Gal. 3:29) In the New Testament, the name Israel not only applies to the One Victorious Man, (Jesus Christ) the true Seed, but also to those who belong to Christ. Believers in Jesus are infused into the Seed, in other words Christians are part of God's spiritual Israel, Jesus Christ.
Kathr, you do not become a part of God's spiritual Israel using your free will. That is all the work of God on the sinner.

"Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made" he does not say , "And to seeds as of many, but as of One" And your Seed, who is Christ' (Col. 3:16) Jesus Christ is the perfect Israel.

Ruben, MY SHEEP at that particular time in history, were God' s chosen people Israel to begin with. He had always referred to ISRAEL as His Sheep, and rebuked the shepherds He had put over them..OT. It was God's ORIGINAL PLAN never to have a KING in Israel, as it was to be a Nation where God was all they needed. he gave them what they wanted..1St Saul...

So when Jesus says MY SHEEP hear my voice, Jesus who IS GOD in the flesh is referring to those in Israel who have always had faith, and walked in truth. The 12 disciples prove that. Yet we also know many of GOD's SHEEP went astray. He still calls them HIS LOST SHEEP...not goats.

Markv and Christan have NO OT foundation and are incapable of RIGHTLY dividing the word of truth.

"..., absolutely independent, God does as He pleases, only as He pleases, always as He pleases."
The Attributes of God by Arthur W. Pink

Jesus said to the multitudes:

Matthew 11:28_30 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest...."

The delusional will argue that "all" does not mean all. Likewise, 1 Timoty 4:10 "For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe."

Jesus said, John 5:40 "And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life." That they don't come in no shape or form deny that he is the saviour.

Ruben, you now say,
"Mark, How do you know your interpretation is the truth"
I gave you the answer, I compare what a person says with the Word of God. It is pretty easy. Most of the passage people have the wrong interpretation are those passages that imply something or another. Explicit passages are simple. If someone says, that God is unable to save someone, I immediately know they have the wrong god not the God of Scripture, because God is Most High, Lord of heaven and earth. Subject to none, influenced by none, absolutely independent: God does as He pleases, only as He pleases, always as He pleases. So right away I know they are wrong. Read (Isa. 46:10) so you can get an idea.

As I wittiness to nonbelievers. I share the good things God has given me. I don't judge them for the way the believe, and debate who is right or wrong, like Paul said I just share Christ. I don't judge their believes. I know the word of God does not return Void, you sow it and it will produce a harvest for the Glory of God. Do it watch what happen you faith in the word will be come even greater, than it is now.

That is different then witnessing the gospel Truth to those who are not saved yet. Here many are suppose to be saved already, preaching a false gospel. We listen to what they say and compare it to the word of God. If they preach another gospel, we do judge it and present the Truth. And more times then not, they will attack your person because they do not have the Truth. All they can do is attack you. That happens all the time.
But going to the world and witnessing, we don't judge them, the Word of God does. But we present the Word ourselves.

Mark,

WRONG I think it was preach the Gospel Sets you free from the law of sin and death. Why would you want to stay in it?

"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

These things we also speak, not in words which mans wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ."
1 Corinthians 2:12-16

Are you under the law like Jesus was when he was alive on the earth? The law had judgment in it. The New Covenant no law, blessing, given to you to share not to judge with. We were given life not judgment we were given blessing not curses. Share what Jesus has given you, did he give you judgment or Blessing? We all deserve Judgment but that is what Jesus took away. That's what satan does not want you to know. That is the Gospel to share what Jesus took away, and then he Gave us "ALL BLESSINGS"

Bryan, you say things that contradicts the Lord Jesus Christ. Isn't it written in John 8:44-46, "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. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?"

And you say Christ "was trying to get them to believe"? Seriously? Nobody passed greater judgement than Christ did when He was dwelling here, and that's because He's God.

Worth repeating. "Its interesting that Jesus sometimes answered a question with a question. It certainly was not because He did not know the answer, but rather had another motive, perhaps to reveal the intents of the hearts of those questioning Him. Some questions are inquisitive, with a desire to know/understand, other questions are combative. God knows

He was trying to get them to believe the word without judging them with it. Cause he knows how powerful judgment can be. What happen to the Fig tree for not producing fig when it was time for figs?

I think of when Jesus said something like, "Why do you have these thoughts?" He was saying this, I find, to help us evaluate what thoughts we are having. So, this question was not only one for talking about what people believe. Each of His questions, then, could have had a different reason for being a question (c:

//Why do you think Jesus asked questions, instead of arguing with those who disagreed with him?//
Good question.

//---chria9396 on 8/17/13// Agree sister.

He was the Very Word of Elohyim dwelling - seeing the secrets of the thoughts and heart of men.

Elohyim molds by his very Word.

James 3:16 "For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work."

James 3:17 "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure and then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy

Why do you think Jesus asked questions, instead of arguing with those who disagreed with him?
---David on 8/16/13

He answers this plainly...but, in Parables that most preachers today can't decipher. We should avoid these wolves and expose them.

Mar_4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

A well asked question which shows someone the Truth, will take the wind out of the sails of any false argument.

Jesus never gave them the answers to these questions he asked, but notice, they always seemed to know the True answers to these questions.

This took away the argument they had with Jesus, by causing them to argue within themselves.
Where did they get these answers?

I tell you this so you will employ the same method Jesus used, when someone argues with you.

Jesus was both God and man. And being God and all-knowing, what's there for Him to argue with those whom He has created? His presence on earth was to do a mission His Father has appointed Him to do. And that was, "...and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:21

In fact, there was nothing for Christ to argue with the creatures He made from dust. When He spoke, He knew who were His for He prayed, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me, for they are thine" - giving credence to the sovereign election of God whom He was only going to save, not everyone He created.

Because you really don't know what you believe until you "express" yourself.
Expression deepens impression"
After you say something you might think " Is that what I really believe?"

What would be the point in arguing with them? Jesus IS The Truth and they didn't want anything to do with Him, except to get rid of Him. His Words were not what they wanted to hear.

The Pharisees, the scribes and the religous leaders of the day were the ones doing all the arguing. He asked questions to make them think for themselves but they didn't want to hear because they were the "chosen" ones so what did He know?

It's kind of like today, no one wants to think for themselves. They just want to follow the pied piper down the road to Neverland, no questions asked.
