\\cluny..."what if"? our views are biblical so I don't have a "what if".

Mark_V.: "Steven 2: So if Satan controls all thing on the earth, that would mean he is bringing sinners to Christ, now that is something. He must be controlling nature, the births of human beings and even their pre-appointed deaths. I believe before you crown Satan as Lord of all things,..."

You should read the book of Job and see how Satan can wreak havoc upon the world.

Twisting my words again? I did not say he was the lord of ALL things. I said he is the "lord" of the world. God only is lord of ALL things.
---Steveng on 10/20/13


Steven, you say,
" What's more imporatant worldly knowledge or spiritual knowledge?" You said the Holy Spirit gives you knowledge. Then you made a quote that Satan is in control of all things even though God has Ultimate control. How can God have Ultimate control of all things, if Satan has control of all things? God never changes His nature, character or attributes. How do you explain that? How can you explain that if Satan has control of all things, he has control of all believers. How do you explain that? I have to conclude that the spirit giving you knowledge is not the Holy Spirit. You have the wrong god. The wrong spirit giving you knowledge.

The understanding of the Gospel of Christ Jesus. It has set us free form the sin Adam did. Adam's sin cursed all mankind. Jesus broke that curse. The blood of Lamb of God has made it so we can enter his presents, in our flesh and praise him with out the penalty of death on us. This is the gift of the New Covenant. If you have courage to stand in Christ Jesus. This is not zeal as you suppose. This is just the Gospel given and given, and given, and given,..... Jesus asked "How long is it going to take for you to understand what I have given to you?" "YOU"
---Bryan on 10/20/13




Steven 2: So if Satan controls all thing on the earth, that would mean he is bringing sinners to Christ, now that is something. He must be controlling nature, the births of human beings and even their pre-appointed deaths. I believe before you crown Satan as Lord of all things, and before you make comments like you do, you should first study who God is. Then you will know who is Lord of all things.

\\markv, my beliefs are the same as elders. we are of like mind in every way. you think that is a bad thing? well, brother, we are on target with doctrine. you are in left field.

ARe you?

What if your elders' beliefs are wrong? I'm willing to guess they are in many things.

And Jesus Himself said, "If the blind lead the blind, they both fall into the ditch."

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 10/19/13


Bryan, is it worth pointing out to you that mere piety and zeal are not enough?

St. Paul himself condemned zeal not according to knowledge.

Cluny, your worldly pride is showing - again. You want people to know how smart you are. Having worldly knowedge will not get you into heaven. The people whose English is not as perfect as yours will most likely end up in heaven than you.

I'm California state certified to teach college and have taught college for three years. During those three years I had four students having a high school diploma who wrote phonetically (nif as knife). One such student was a devout christian. Will she go to heaven or hell because of her poor English skills?

Besides, where in the bible does it say one must have perfect knowledge of English to enter heaven? What's more imporatant worldly knowledge or spiritual knowledge?

\\Their goes clunly running his laws of grammar carrying less and less about the truth. You say you love God, Were is the love? Cause your religion sure doesn't show to much of it.\\

They aren't my rules of grammar, Bryan. I'm just calling your attention to what the Bible ACTUALLY SAYS.

Loving you doesn't include putting up with your posting foolishness.

And Christianity has traditionally taught that instructing the ignorant is one of the main spiritual works of mercy and love.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 10/19/13




\\Their goes clunly running his laws of grammar carrying less and less about the truth. You say you love God, Were is the love? Cause your religion sure doesn't show to much of it.\\

These are not my laws of grammar, but standard English usage. I learned them in elementary school. Did you not? (BTW, the word you're looking for is "caring," not "carrying".)

And where did you get the idea that what you say is the truth?

Instructing the ignorant is one of the standard works of mercy and love in traditional Christian teaching.

Samuel, you say,
"But Calvinism does not. A person who cannot choose cannot be responsible for choosing."
First, you know that all are condemned already without Christ right? In life they all make choices, and God judges their choices right? Unbelievers are spiritually dead to God. They never seek after God. why? Because they are dead in sin, children of wrath, under the spirit of the power of the air, they do not believe or have faith in Christ right? How can they choose what they do not have faith in? Only those who believe and have faith already open their arms for Christ. Why? Because they believe in Him. Believing in Christ is the work of God.
Without that work of God descendants of Adam remain condemned.

\\ If the word of God died and went to hell for the hole world that covers all, it is for who so ever, \\

Bryan, if you knew the Bible as well as you claimed, you would know that it's for the "whole world," not "hole," and that "whosoever" is ONE word, not three.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 10/18/13


Dear Mark_V. on 10/18/13

I agree with everything you wrote on this. But Calvinism does not. A person who cannot choose cannot be responsible for choosing. It is like saying a Baby should be punished for going to the Bathroom if there is no choice.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/18/13

If the word of God died and went to hell for the hole world that covers all, it is for who so ever, our job as believers is to call our brothers out of darkness not chase them in to it. Or to say it is not my job to tell them. God will let them know if he wants them saved, that is sick thinking. You have the word in you and yet you don't believe it can do what Jesus said it could do, if you would only believe it. The word is SHARPER than a two edged sword. If spoken in love, not in judgment, the things it will cut off peoples life right in front of you. That is the God I serve.
---Bryan on 10/17/13


Samuel, what a story you told. Lets look at that. All descendants of Adam are heading to hell. They are under the curse. They are born sinners. They are all separated from God. Yet the wrath of God comes upon them for they suppress the truth in unrighteousness, so they are guilty because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
"So they are without excuse, because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful.
---Mark_V. on 10/18/13


Say a Billionare goes to an orphange and can adopt all the children. But this Billionare is the one who put the Children in the orphange. He then arbitraly chooses some but then tells the other orphans you can never be adopted because I won't let you be adopted.

Would that be fair? That is what Limited atonement and total depravity in Calvanism does. The doctrine of hell in fact says that after leaving the orphange. The doors are locked and the Building is set of fire to torture the children left there for all eternity. How fair is that?
---Samuelbb7 on 10/17/13


Shira, Elders knowledge of the Word is bad. You like it, because it conforms to what you already believed. You say,
"markv, if you are preaching that Christ died for a few and send many to hell, you are preaching a false salvation." I have never said such a thing. You guys keep saying that.
When a person wants to adopt a child and goes to an orphanage, they choose who they want, they pick them for some reason or another right? and the rest they leave them there. Is that fair? That is what God does, He picks His own, and the rest He leaves them in the condition they are in. He does nothing wrong to them. But you say its not fair, you believe God is obligated to pick all. No one deserves to be picked, we are all sinners.

Shira 2: you also said,
"I would not want to be in your shoes when Jesus returns to gather His own"
you will want to be in my shoes when Jesus returns to gather His own. But it will be too late because you never trusted God for your salvation, you put your faith in your own free will. Your own works, not the works of God.
"then they said to Him, What shall we do that we may work the works of God?
Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent"
(John 6:28,29).
---Mark_V. on 10/17/13


So markv all those people "Jesus" healed in the bible were just healed spiritually? All those demons Jesus cast out of people really did not happen? So the word you believe in only heals you spiritually. Well if I'm healed spiritually, the rest is healed cause the flesh is subject to the spirit not the spirit subject to the flesh. So the word "Jesus" heals all. spirit, soul, and body.
---Bryan on 10/17/13


markv, if you are preaching that Christ died for a few and send many to hell, you are preaching a false salvation. I would not want to be in your shoes when Jesus returns to gather His own. the reason I became friends with elder and his sweet wife is because of his knowledge on the Word of God.

Shira, your disappointed I do not agree with your interpretations or Elders.
I have preached the gospel many times, when I do people get upset, walk away, or say some nasty stuff to me. But there is always a few who want to know and they listen, and ask questions. Your one of those who gets angry and offended. You have been taught different, and so you fight with all you got. You say my shell is hard, but it is your shell that is hard. You don't want to hear the truth. God says salvation with man is impossible, you say not true, man can exercise his own free will and gain salvation. God says, the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, you say it is not true. They can listen and believe with their own free will.
---Mark_V. on 10/16/13


Bryan, you now say.
" Never said I cured anybody, But the Jesus who is in me cures who so ever. By his strips we are healed. What was the first words Jesus said? Luke 4:18, maybe that is not in your bible"
My Bible has Luke 4:18) and it does not say you heal the sick. In fact it is speaking of Jesus Christ. "He (God) sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind." In the context, Jesus was sent by the Father when He arrived. It is not talking about you. I read it, it is not speaking of us. Jesus was reading from a book (v. 20).
By His strips we are healed, spiritually. From the death we are in.
---Mark_V. on 10/16/13


Your funny markv seg cluny, tag team of disbelief. Never said I cured anybody, But the Jesus who is in me cures who so ever. By his strips we are healed. What was the first words Jesus said? Luke 4:18, maybe that is not in your bible, reconciled back to God, redeemed, The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead life in me, Great is he that is in me than he who is in the world, Are those in your bible? You use your gifts from God to insult the gifts he give to who so ever? You fight to save your religion, were the Gospel just sets people free. No fighting needed Thank you Jesus. If you have ears to hear you will hear, "Who the Son sets free is free indeed".
---Bryan on 10/15/13


shira, you were the one who said that someone was unable to interpret scripture. Why is it any worse for someone else (namely me) to say the same thing about you?

As I remember from my Baptist days, we were taught that everyone had the right to interpret scripture for himself (a principle the Bible itself rejects). Woe betide you, however, if your interpretation differed markedly from those around you.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---shira4368 on 10/15/13


Shira, you should stop arguing against the Grace of God. It will not help you in the end.


Bryan, I did not ask you if you prayed at the hospitals, I asked you how many people have your cured and why not cure the sick at the hospitals? If you have that power, just visit them, touch them as you say and they should be cured. You would actually stop sin. people get sick because people are destined to die and then the Judgment. They die because of sin. Sin brought death.
yes, everything is freely given by God to all human beings. The rain falls on the just and the unjust. Some of the unjust live better the Christians. When you learn how to interpret a parable, give us the parable and the answer, so we can check it with Scripture.

Do you believe Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and forever? What was the first thing Jesus said,"LUKE4:18", what was the first parable Jesus taught use. Mark 4 I have nothing that is not freely given to who so ever believes. Look it up yourself Jesus is very clear and he said out of your belly will follow rivers of living water.
---Bryan on 10/14/13


Bryan,
If you are so spiritually gifted, why do you not go to hospitals and cure the sick? Or be there so when a person dies, you can give them life? And please tell us how many times you have drank poison? You are a fake. All you do is talk about how spiritual you are. You are no different then anyone else if you are saved, for all come short of the glory of God.

---Bryan on 10/13/13


Bryan, you would have said so much more, had you stopped here!
//Even for people who believe as little as you.//

But you didn't, you had to add!
//When you understand "Matthew chapter 13, Mark chapter 4, and Luke chapter 8. Who the Jesus sets free is free indeed.//

So then what you're saying is:
Unless a person understand Matthew ch13, Mark ch4 and Luke ch8!
You cannot be free!

So then this becomes a lie:
Joh_1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Now I'm not telling you what believe or how, believe what you want.
Makes no difference to me, see!

And, yes, it was a baptism of people who understood they needed to repent. They came "confessing their sins" > Matthew 3:6, Mark 1:5.

Rom_14:15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.


Mat_3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

Eph_4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling, One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

The Baptism of Christ was clearly from heaven!
Peace

cluny you were right Moses was the only person to ever see God. But a lot of people have seen the Lord in the OT and the NT and even today. The 3 brother in the fire, Paul the apostle there is so many more look it up yourself. Don't for get the Lord walked on the earth as a man, a lot of nonbelievers saw him then to.

"why do you expect mere mortals to do so" Cause we are not under cluny's law any more. The power of Life in Christ Jesus Has set us Free from the laws of cluny and death.

If Jesus refused to answer the question, why do you expect mere mortals to do so 2000 years later, Bryan?

However John did not invent baptism. It was no more or less than the Jewish Rite of Mikveh, which is practiced by Jews for many reasons. Among them is receiving a convert from among Gentiles.

Bet you didn't know that.

BTW, just because something is not mentioned in the Bible doesn't mean that Jews don't do it.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
