"I want to become saved." Jamea yield yourself to the Father that He may bring you to repentance, (2Cr 7:10) and work in you to " 'Believe on' (rely on, adhere to, trust in, and depend upon) the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." Act 16:31
For "This is the work of God, that you may believe in him whom He did send." Jhn 6:29
"How do I do that?" "Confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus". Rom 10:9 Acknowledge Him as Lord of salvation and know that "I [Jesus] am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me." Jhn 14:6

\\Saying "I don't pray to the dead saints, I just talk to them" is like a little child saying "I didn't steal\\

Jed, when people talk with you, are they praying to you?

When I post my replies to you, am I praying to you?

If you were a man, Jed, you'd admit you don't have the mind to tell the difference.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

cluny i will ask you a different way?why does your church ask you to ask favours of saints?
---jamea3475 on 11/4/13


We can't be saved by following Christ, or striving to live as He did. His perfect holiness would only emphasize our unrighteousness and condemn us. He came to save us, not by His life, but by His death. CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS (ICor.15:3), and sinners are reconciled to God by the death of His Son (Rom.5:10).
But God has given us a pattern for salvation, the Apostle Paul, the chief(not worst, but first) of sinners saved by grace. Hear what he says by divine inspiration:
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, THAT CHRIST JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD TO SAVE SINNERS, of whom I am chief (ITim.1:15).

Saying "I don't pray to the dead saints, I just talk to them" is like a little child saying "I didn't steal, I just took something without permission" or "I didn't lie, I just said something that is untrue". Adults take responsibility for themselves. If Cluny wanted to be a real man, he would simply admit "Yes, I pray to the dead saints. Yes, I know it's unbiblical, but it is what my church does and I will defend my church at any and all costs. My church comes before what the Bible says." If Cluny was an honest person, that's what he would say.
---Jed on 11/3/13




\\cluny you havent answered my question,im really trying to understand,you ask these saints because?does the bible say to?
---jamea3475 on 11/3/13\\

This might be an idea that will blow your mind, james, but.....

The Orthodox Church doesn't do things because the Bible says so. The books of the Bible, especially the NT, were selected because they record what the Orthodox Church was doing.

The Orthodox Church was functioning in all her fullness before ONE WORD of the NT was written down.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 11/3/13


First Cluny says that he asks the dead saints to pray for him, then hr says dead saints are unable to do him this favor he has asked. Then why ask?

Playing games with words, saying "I dont pray to dead saints, I just ask them to do it for me" is a complete cop-out. That is the behavior of a weak and cowardly person. Get a backbone and own up to your actions and your beliefs and quit playing word games. Talking to dead saints and making requests to them is praying.
---Jed on 11/3/13

---jamea3475 on 11/3/13


Cluny, so what you are saying is that the churches sell the candles, people buy them, take them inside the shrine of the Madonna, light them up. Knell down and talk to the Modonna, ask favors to God through the Modonna, and that is not praying? Is that correct? That is what is done at churches which have Madonna's. I have been there to three of them, done that. All formers Catholics know about it.
So what you are saying is that the Eastern Orthodox do not have Madonna's and people don't knell down and ask favors through the Madonna's?
---Mark_V. on 11/3/13


\\Do you believe asking for favors to dead people is not praying?\\

I not only believe they are not the same, I KNOW they are not the same. Besides, dead people can't grant anything. It is GOD who grants favors.

Too bad you don't grasp these concepts.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 11/2/13




Samuel, you said,
" In Cluny's belief he can ask dead saints for help and is not praying to them."
Do you believe asking for favors to dead people is not praying? What do you say when you pray to God? Don't you ask for favors? Of course. What other reason would a person pray? They are depending on the one they are asking, that he/she is going to answer to their needs. Dead people do not answer anyone. Only God answers the needs of His children.
The worship of idols is big in the RCC and Eastern Orthodox churches. Shrines are build, candle burn for them. While Jesus is but forgotten. Their faith is not on Christ but on some dead saint.
---Mark_V. on 11/2/13


Hi, James (c: God bless you, and it is good to see you (c: Jesus says, "'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29) A yoke on an animal gives the animal personal connection with someone so the animal can be guided. In God's peace giving us rest, we have our Father's personal leading and guiding.

But we need to seek our Father for His correction so we succeed in this > Hebrews 12:4-17.

God wants to rule us in His peace > "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

"Pray and ask are not the same thing. I can ask you or anyone else for a favor. That does not mean I am praying to you." -Samuelbb7 on 11/1/13

Thats because I am a live human being whom you can actually talk to in real life. Talking to spirits is the definition of praying.

"Cluny's belief he can ask dead saints for help and is not praying to them. Accept that as a fact and move on."

His belief is wrong. I do not have to accept his errant beliefs. Talking to the dead is prohibited in the Bible.

"I am glad he does not pray to them. For our prayers are to be to GOD alone."

But he DOES!
---Jed on 11/1/13


i do not pray to saints or ask anything of them cause the bible says not to talk to the dead,so honestly im trying to find out why some people cant see this,cluny seems to be a smart guy,so i want to know were abouts in the bible it tells him to talk to saints?
---jamea3475 on 11/1/13


Dear Jed

Pray and ask are not the same thing. I can ask you or anyone else for a favor. That does not mean I am praying to you. I do not believe in asking anything of the dead for to me they are dead.

But I will not put down another person by going against what they say just to be sarcastic. In Cluny's belief he can ask dead saints for help and is not praying to them. Accept that as a fact and move on.

I am glad he does not pray to them. For our prayers are to be to GOD alone.
---Samuelbb7 on 11/1/13


How do you ask dead saints to pray for you? Wouldn't that require praying to them to ask them to pray? Or do you not consider talking with dead spirits the same as praying to them? So let me get this straight, you don't "pray" to the saint's spirits, you just talk to them? LOL, Okay!

Cluny, you have always claimed that you do everything according to scripture so please show scriptures which show that it is God's desire that we pray to dead people.
---Rita_H on 11/1/13


jamea: "why do you ask dead saints to pray for you? which scripture says to do this?"

You'll find that Cluny's religion is not based on the Bible, but rather on pagan early church fathers who, like him, believed in spiritualism. The Bible in fact forbids necromancy - the communication with the dead. It also says:

Ecc 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but THE DEAD KNOW NOT ANYTHING, neither have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. (Maybe that's why Cluny doesn't know anything.)

Ecc 9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished, neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.



---jerry6593 on 11/1/13


I am glad Cluny that you phrased it as asking the dead saints to pray for you.

In the RCC they pray to the dead saints. Acting like they are demigods.

Personally I only deal with the Father through my High Priest JESUS CHRIST.
Hbr 7:25,26

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens,

Talk about splitting hairs and arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. The debate about Filioquism is both useless and meaningless. The true controversy that lead to the Schism was the RCC Pope trying to make himself the only earthly mediator and supreme Bishop over all the churches.

Vicarius Filii Dei (Latin: Vicar or Representative of the Son of God) is a phrase first used in the forged medieval Donation of Constantine to refer to Saint Peter, a leader of the Early Christian Church and regarded as the first Pope by the Catholic Church.

Iconoclast made a reasonable argument based on the Second Commandment but that is thrown out. The important thing is to be filled with the HOLY SPIRIT.

\\ restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the public.\\

The Gospel was never restored in the West until Orthodox began immigrating thither, building a network of parishes, dioceses, and monasteries.

Western churches are still infected with Filioquism.

Wrong, Reuben. We don't reject the Pope whose faith was Orthodox, such as St. Leo, St. Gregory, and Pope St. John VIII who wrote that filioquism was a soul-destroying heresy, and those who believed it had their portion with Judas.

Actually, the Orthodox Church formally split off of the Roman Catholic Church in 1054. Technically making Orthodoxy the first protestant denomination since they were the first to rebel and "protest" the Roman Catholic Church.

The protestant reformation began in 1517 with Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses.

Orthodoxy however is not considered a protestant denomination since it wasn't birthed from the reformation, and is still very similar to Roman Catholicism. Protestant denominations were birthed by complete reformation of the Church and restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the public. The Orthodox split from Catholicism was mostly political in nature, with few corrections to their major doctrinal fallacies.

Samuel, you say,
"The Second answer is that GOD gives all humans a chance to be saved and we choose to be lost and love sin over righteousness. That makes it our fault we are lost"
Where is the passage that states what you said? Not found in Scripture. What is found in Scripture concerning the lost,
"There is none who understands"
There is none who seeks after God"
(Rom. 3:11). This is God's word. No one lost seeks after God. How could He be waiting for them to come to Christ? They cannot. He tells us so. The lost have to be made willing to come to Christ. God has to change their hearts. Without God we can do nothing.

Jesus appeared to Paul and taught him the manifold wisdom of God (Gal 1:1, 11, Eph 3:10). His epistles contain instructions from the Lord Jesus.

While most of your Bible was written specifically to the nation of Israel, the Lord gave Paul instructions specifically for the Gentiles (Eph 3:1). He was titled the apostle of the Gentiles (Rom 11:13). You are in this audience.

The Lord Jesus revealed the mystery of himself to Paul after the red letters and after Pentecost. Paul claims to be the last person to see the resurrected Lord (1 Cor 15:8). He was given the preaching of the cross and the gospel of the grace of God(1Cor 15:1-4, 1 Thess 4:14) as a pattern for our present salvation (1 Tim 1:15-16).
---michael_e on 10/29/13


David you asked the question why GOD saves some and not all. There are two answers. Your answer is that GOD chooses some to save and chooses the majority to be lost.

This makes it GOD's will that many are lost and that GOD did not die or love everyone. Which contradicts scripture.

The Second answer is that GOD gives all humans a chance to be saved and we choose to be lost and love sin over righteousness. That makes it our fault we are lost.

GOD can do what He wishes He does not have to do it in a way we want Him to. But the second way matches all verses in the Bible.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/29/13


James
When you ask, "What must I do to be saved?"
Many will tell you what you must do to be saved, and later on, tell you that you are not saved by what you do.
And some will tell you that you are saved by what you do.

What is the Truth?
God decides who he will save, therefore he is the only one who can save you.
The question is why does God save some and not all?

Grace is the favor of God and God will save those who are in his favor.
How do we get into Gods favor? Jesus gives us this answer in (John 14:21).

Jesus is called the Author of Salvation, and it would be wise of you to follow the teachings of the one called the Author of Salvation.

C luny: Thank you for once again demonstrating that hate-speech against other denominations is your only method of reasoning. Samuel and I, on the other hand, have never excluded any denomination from salvation as you have. And although we maintain the biblical and historical record of the RCC Papacy in opposition to God's people, we steadfastly defend the Catholic people as fellow Christians bound for heaven. You conversely maintain that only Greek pagan pseudoOrthodox will be saved. Bumf!

\\We do teach that someday Popes who changed the day of worship from Sabbath to Sunday\\

No pope ever did so, but that's beside the point. In any case, the Sabbath commandment had NOTHING to do with worship, as services were held in the Tabernacle, Temple, and later synagogues TWICE DAILY.

\\ will with the Government tell people that they will be executed for keeping Sabbath and must keep Sunday only.\\

Which government?

How will this affect churches that have daily services?

Oh, yes. One of the paranoid fantasies of EGW is that the US government is the false prophet with its nasty blue laws.

Well when you tell lies to prove a point that is definitly not a loving or ever Christian thing to do. We do teach that someday Popes who changed the day of worship from Sabbath to Sunday will with the Government tell people that they will be executed for keeping Sabbath and must keep Sunday only. Then it becomes the Mark of the Beast. As for RCC claims that they changed the day you can read it in History. But then as an Orthodox member you know how often the RCC lies about Church History.

As for being saved. Read the New Testament like I wrote before.

Salvation is a free gift without any work. (Eph. 2:8-9) Salvation isn't dependent on joining the church, being water baptized, asking for forgiveness or inviting Christ into your heart.
Forgiveness is available to all who believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again and God forgave us for Christs sake. (I Cor. 15:1-4) Salvation is trusting completely in what Christ did in our behalf at Calvary. (Eph. 1:13) This truth has been hidden by the religious system that has substituted traditions of men for truth
The gospel of grace is, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, freely gave His life as the sacrifice to pay for all of our sins, was crucified, buried, and rose from the dead on the third day. (ref 1Cor 15:1-4, 1Thess 4,14)

James, so you feel you want to leave the RCC? That is very good decision. While they are one of the biggest denominations in the world, they are one of the biggest in traditions of man. Through the centuries so many traditions have been added not in the Bible. So that is good. Second, really search your own heart whether you have a true love for Christ at this moment. Third, are you seeking the Lord because you love Him and have been convicted by the Spirit of your rebellion against God? Then repent of your sin. You have to believe by faith that Jesus died for your sins, then you will be saved. Only those who already love Christ, want to be with Christ forever.
Forth, you don't have to tell anyone what your doing. It's between you and God.

I was raised Catholic, and went to Catholic school. When I was 17, I accepted Jesus as my Savior, and began to attend evening services at an Evangelical church, while still singing in choir at the Catholic church in the morning. Easter Sunday, 1975, was my last regular Catholic mass.

My Mom didn't want me to become a Bible thumping Baptist, which I did. Throughout the years, all of my siblings accepted the Lord. Not too sure what Mom's Spiritual status is, because of her mental illness.

Jamea3475:
It sounds like you're trying to "do" something to become saved.

Unfortunately, that's what you'll hear from fake believers.

Becoming saved is not an activity like climbing out of a hole. You don't turn over a new leaf, or say the right prayer, or make a commitment to Jesus to become saved.

Many will call Him "Lord, Lord" and will be turned away.

Why? Because they say to Him "Haven't We...?"

He's not interested in the filthy rags of our righteousness

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, hope in Him, Rely upon Him only to have accomplished your salvation through His death and blood.

Only then you will be saved

The materialism, today have complicated life so secondary problems hinder many people from considering what is most important.
Despite distractions, many hunger for true satisfaction.
Such people should read Romans and meditate on its salvation message. This is the first book they should read.
Romans says all have sinned (3:23) and the wages of sin is death (6:23). Romans proclaims Christ was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification..(4:25, 5:1).
Romans offers grace to all who trust in Christ. (5:20,21). Believers are justified freely by [God's] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (3:24) and the [free] gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (6:23).

Belief in resurrection testifies to a belief in God, a belief in miracles, and a belief in Jesus Christ.
According to Pauls gospel, without the fact of resurrection then our faith is vain, we are yet in our sins, and there is no hope against death.
1 Cor 15:16-17 Romans 4:25
Christ has already been resurrected from the dead for my sake, and I believe that I will also resurrect after I die. This is faith in the God that saves us from death, and does what he says (1 Cor 15:1-4). The gospel is a miracle. Resurrection is a miracle. Immortality is a miracle, and God gives it to all who trust in the power and promise in Christs resurrection.

"Jesus says, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.'" (John 14:6) It is how Jesus saves us, James. So, trust Him. And God is able to guide you.

There is no right "Protestant" way, also. Jesus is our way. And I personally have found so much more in the Bible, than any religious group has told me . . . than all Catholic and Protestant groups combined have.

But there are Christian people whose examples of how to love have helped me > "nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3) Your example can tell better than any talk can (c:

God's love in us does so more and better. God bless you (c:

James, you say,
"my orginal question was how do i tell my family im going to become saved i dont have the courage to tell dem?"
My question to you is how do you know you are going to become saved? Did God speak to you and tell you ahead of time? Or are you saying, that God has drawn you to Himself, and now you believe in Christ through faith and want to verbably make a commitment?

Mat 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

\\Hi, James (c: If you have been "Catholic" and you now know what you were into is wrong . .\\

But Protestants are even MORE wrong, willie c.

I wonder how many people here know what the Roman Catholic Church really teaches--as opposed to devotional side issues.

Nobody here seems to concentrate on the REAL problems with it--because they are all infected with the same spiritual errors.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

"**It is written, there is none righteous , no not one: There is none that understandeth : There is none that seeketh after God ** You cited this because it also pertains to you, right?" 1stCliff

Of course it pertains to me before the Lord called, it doesn't to you? Well, congratulations and this is what Christ have to say to you -

"But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." Matthew 9:13

You're a modern day Pharisee and please be proud of it, which I'm sure you are.

Hi, James (c: If you have been "Catholic" and you now know what you were into is wrong . . . most of all, it is important to find out what the Bible says is right. Your reason is to get into what is right. So, this perhaps is something you can tell them.

But God is able to give you what you are encouraged to say!! (c: Trust God about this.

But most of all, our attention needs to be to what Jesus says to us (c: not only what do we say (c:

Jesus says, "'Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:28-29)

james, your spiritual choices are YOUR business, not your family's.

Follow the Lord's leading, but make sure you respond with love to them.

Don't forget that standing up for your faith is NOT the same thing as being obnoxious in the Name of Jesus.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

james, I know nothing about you (you sound like you still may be young, but I could be wrong), or your family.

But consider this:

A very wise and holy man of our time told a zealous teenager that what would please God more than his fasting or spiritual activities was being obedient to his parents and and being peaceful with his family.

When he grew up and was on his own, that was another matter.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Hi, James (c: How are you doing? We are praying for you. Jesus died on the cross for us . . . for our sins. And Jesus now has risen from the dead and He is Lord of all > Jesus has all that is good and rules with God our Father. So, Jesus has power and authority to save you . . . to turn you "from the power of Satan to God," as we read in Acts 26:18.

You can be personally sharing with God, and obeying Him in all He desires, that the Bible says . . . how God has us doing all His word says. And this comes with trusting in Jesus to have us succeed in this > Ephesians 1:12.

So, trust in Jesus for salvation, for forgiveness, and how God's grace has us doing all He means by His word (Proverbs 3:5-7). God bless you (c:

James, you are asking the same question the disciples asked Jesus in (Matt. 19:25) when they said,
"When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, "who then can be saved?" Jesus had just told them it was hard for a rich to enter the kingdom of God and it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. So Jesus answered them,
"But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "with men this is impossible, but with God all thing are possible" (Matt. 19:25,26).
That is why we preach the "Word of God" because with God all things are possible.
