Samuelbb7. Christians love the Lord God. We do this by believing His promise, obeying His will, (that is the commandment to believe on Jesus, 1John 3:23).
this is the WILL OF HIM who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and BELIEVES IN HIM may have everlasting life, John 6:40.

If God were your Father, you would love Me..., John 8:42

Legalists do not love Jesus. They reject God's will and seek righteousness by works of law instead, even though the law is NOT of faith, Gal 3:12. Any legalists who truly had the knowledge (most don't) of the truth of the gospel (Heb 6:4-6) but turn back to law, such put Christ to open shame. They have trampled the Son of God underfoot, Heb 10:29. Legalists do not love God.
---Haz27 on 7/10/14


Samuelbb7. Note Rom 10:3. seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God

Legalists do not love the Lord God. They do not submit to His righteousness. Instead they seek to establish their own righteousness by works of the law.

We see some of the churches in Revelations being called upon to repent. For example one church (Rev 2:14) was tolerating those who preached works of the the law (spiritual fornication with Hagar, Gal 4:24). Another example is the lukewarm church who mixed works of the law with grace (Rev 3:15). Both these churches were called upon to repent.

SDA's likewise should heed God's call to repent of their dead works.
---Haz27 on 7/10/14


What are his commandments? See 1John 3:23
1: Believe on Jesus
2: Love one another

Note how the Sabbath is NOT listed there. Haz27

I note that this is not the entire list of GODs commandments.

Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Do you teach these commandments are done away with and we do not have to follow them?
---Samuelbb7 on 7/9/14


// John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

This includes not making false accusations.//

Samuel,
if your theory is correct, and it is not, you my friend are not saved. You told me you believed we (believers) were saved by the grace of God, not by our works, and now you say those who are saved, if they make false statements are not saved. You made a false statement.
You are wrong, Christ dies for you only one time. Not many times.
Listen Samuel, you are a sinner like everyone else, Christ died for you once for all time. All your sins were taken care of at the cross. Sin can never remove you from the Kingdom of God. If sin could do that, no one would be saved for all sin and come short of the glory of God. Agape
---Luke on 7/9/14


//I place my faith in the promises of GOD. But I have meet many who practice sin and say it is okay since they are once saved.//

Your faith is not on Christ. Since I met you and you practice sin. I still believe you are saved. Your Pride in the teachings of the SDA's with their Saturday Sabbath. You will not listen to the truth, that we are saved by Grace through faith, not by our own works.
Jesus died for us only once, He will not die for you again. In your case, if you sin and do not repent you lose salvation. Then if you repent, you are saved again. The Bible tells us we are born of the Spirit only one time forever to be with the Lord, He will never leave you are forsake you. Lucky you and I, for we sin everyday. Agape
---Luke on 7/9/14




Jesus said: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The ultimate commandment is LOVE of which hang these two commandments of which hang the ten commandments of which hang the 613 laws of Moses of which hang all the law and the prophets. Love is the obstacle that, once gone, will reveal the anti-christ.
---Steveng on 7/8/14


you once mailed me and said we seemed to agree on most things and you also said there would come a day you would not agree. well today is your day because like I said, I am born into the family of God and I can't get unborn. I have everlasting life.
---shira4368 on 7/8/14


I have meet many who practice sin and say it is okay since they are once saved. ....If ye love me, keep my commandments. ---Samuel

What are his commandments? See 1John 3:23
1: Believe on Jesus
2: Love one another

Note how the Sabbath is NOT listed there.

And who it is that "Sins"?
It's legalists who sin as they're under the law. And whatever the law says it says to those under it, Rom 3:19. Legalists make themselves a sinner as they have built up for themselves righteousness by works of the law, Gal 2:18
---Haz27 on 7/8/14


steveng, I don't know you but I am one of the crowd who believes my salvation last forever. once saved always saved. why don't you look at all the eternal, forever, everlasting. that does not give man a license to sin. God will turn the flesh over to satan for distruction. you are a sinner just like I am. if you are saved you are a saved sinner. I am saved also. its hard to keep the flesh is subjection. often it means not getting around certain people or things. I know when I die I will forever be in heaven with Jesus. luke, you are also a sinner. don't know if you are saved or not.
---shira4368 on 7/8/14


Yes, there is, those believers who place their faith in the promises of God, something you don't.
"being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the Day of the Jesus Christ" Philippians 1:6. Luke

I place my faith in the promises of GOD. But I have meet many who practice sin and say it is okay since they are once saved.

True Believers live for JESUS.

From within - without. This account. A minister friend, Don Simmons saying the other day, a man from 1 of the doctrines and commandments of men trinity relig org's, saying to him, there is no foundation basis for Acts 2 v 38 Church. Such Lies from the devil to his followers.
Jesus gave the directive to Peter, Matt. 16 v 18. Acts 2 v 38 came to pass on the day of Pentecost, and The Church of The Living God was born..

//What born again believer says he lives in sin and is going to heaven because it is okay to lie?"

Luke is one person who lies against Jesus every day when he spreads false rumors against me - or anyone else for that matter.//
Steven, you show you hate against other believers, those who gather in denominations.


//There is one group of so-called christians who have thousands upon thousands of those who believe "once saved, always saved.".//

Yes, there is, those believers who place their faith in the promises of God, something you don't.
"being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the Day of the Jesus Christ" Philippians 1:6.
---Luke on 7/8/14

Your statement is false. What born again believer says he lives in sin and is going to heaven because it is okay to lie?"

Luke is one person who lies against Jesus every day when he spreads false rumors against me - or anyone else for that matter.

the biggest threat is the antichrist. many ARE following him right now & they don't even know it.
---mike on 7/7/14


elena, thanks for your post about muslims and food but people who live in the U.S. has never experienced things in other countries that are always at war with someone. the middle east has been at war since the beginning of time. I cannot make my brain imagine what some women and children go thru in Africa and middle east. I do know muslims don't have a problem blowing themselves up and if Christians were that devoted we could nip this in the bud. Im not willing to blow myself up to make a statement. Im just saying Christians are not willing to do what muslims do for their false god.
---shira4368 on 7/7/14


//Others live in sin and still go to heaven because it is okay to lie.//

Samuel,
Your statement is false. What born again believer says he lives in sin and is going to heaven because it is okay to lie? Why don't you name one born of the Spirit believer who said that? You keep making this statements as if there is Christians who believe that. If He is born of God, he will never say it is ok to sin and ok to lie. Never.
If there is individuals who say that, I guarantee they are not born of the Spirit. Stop comparing us to the lost to introduce your doctrines of the law.
Christ died for us (believers) once of all time. All our sins are forgiven. And none of us say it is ok to sin or to lie. None, Zero. Agape

//Luke are you saying you are the elect? And you can't be deceived? So you are perfect as Jesus? If you sin anytime you are deceived. If you sin at anytime about any area you have followed the voice of the stranger.//

Bryan, when we sin we are not listening to strangers. We sin because we want to sin otherwise we would not. Nobody makes us.
We are not perfected yet. We still live in the flesh which has not being redeemed. One day we will be glorified, then we will have a sinless body prepared for heaven. Agape
---Luke on 7/7/14


I see very little preaching of righteousness by works.

I hear a lot of follow JESUS and get rich.

Many preach an easy you are good and just do what you want preaching.

Others live in sin and still go to heaven because it is okay to lie.

But you are correct Haz27 there are many ways to be fooled if you are not trusting JESUS and reading the Bible.
---Samuelbb7 on 7/7/14


The biggest threat can come from either in or out of church. It depends on one's circumstances.

Christians fight the good fight of faith (1Tim 4:12) believing on Jesus. We are to obey this commandment to believe on Jesus without spot or blemish (1Tim 4:14).

For some the threat comes from outside church from false religions like Humanism, Islam, Buddhism etc. Then there are also the cares of the world that are a threat.

But for others the threat comes from in the church. False teaching, most commonly the preaching of righteousness by works of the law, can lead Christians into unbelief. We must not even mix works with grace, Rom 11:6.
---Haz27 on 7/6/14


To Shira4368, been few weeks ago, I heard a guy say to a devout christian "hey, come go with me to the mosque!"
the brother say, "No, way would I be go to the mosque!" Why are you going there? man said "they give us alot of food, etc." Our pastor wise man, but explains it with THE BIBLE! you can't serve God and serve a false God.You must choose whom you will serve..
He can tell you re: false religions,
I told them how my daughter involved and I don't know where or
If she alive or dead. our pastor teaches the truth, he is very adament about it. There'a woman dating a moslem, she confused, I keep telling her be carefull.my daughter is in a bad situation, she must repent & seek God to get out!

Luke are you saying you are the elect? And you can't be deceived? So you are perfect as Jesus? If you sin anytime you are deceived. If you sin at anytime about any area you have followed the voice of the stranger. So if you sin you have been deceived. But God's Grace is sufficient for you. Cause if it was sufficient Paul it is sufficient for you. so don't sin or you will be impeached

there are many who fool people but they will never fool God. I have a heavy burden all Christians better stick together with a loud voice before our nation succumbs to islam. they are working 10 times harder to get us than we ever work to keep them out of our country. some muslims brotherhood is on our national security board. that should tell us we are in a dangerous place. they monitor this website, facebook and they gather information and will used against us. think I'm nuts??? well Im not. that is impressed on my heart for many months now.

//That is the voice of the stranger. A lot if religions teach this kind of gospel. example. If you don't believe like me your wrong, if you don't go to my church your wrong, if don't get baptized your wrong, if you don't do it this way your wrong. That is how the elect will get deceived.//

Dear Bryan,
Did you not read what Matthew 24:24 says? Do you not know that Matthew 24:24 is part of the gospel? The passages indicate the elect are not deceived. Because the elect do not listen to the voice of strangers. You say they do, that is why they are deceived. Again you speak a lot, but no truth in what you say. You make up stuff for no reason at all. Agape
---Luke on 7/5/14


He will use the Gospel for his on selfish gain. That is the voice of the stranger. A lot if religions teach this kind of gospel. example. If you don't believe like me your wrong, if you don't go to my church your wrong, if don't get baptized your wrong, if you don't do it this way your wrong. That is how the elect will get deceived. The Gospel is greater than right and it Is greater than wrong. It is the Gospel, it takes the right and the wrong and makes them both perfect.
---Bryan on 7/4/14


Dear Samuel,
You gave Matthew 24:24 but did not explain it. No true believer is deceived. Here is what it says,
The elect are not deceived.
"For false Christ and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, "if" possible, even the elect" Matthew 24:24.
This clearly implies that such a deception is not possible, for we are told in (John 10:4,5).

"And when He brings out His own sheep, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. "yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him," for they do not know the voice of strangers"

Steveng the verses you posted on 6/29/14 have nothing to do with falling out of Salvation or falling away in that concept.

Even your attempt using Hebrews 6:4-6 fails. You should take notice of the word "if."

What this passage is teaching is that IF it were possible to lose your Salvation you could NEVER be Saved again!
---Elder on 7/2/14


While atheism continues to make inroads and Islam is an enemy that wishes to put an end to Christianity. There are many inside the church who work to get their followers and get rich.

They are the ones who fool more people.


Mat 24:24

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.


Tools specific to Mat 24:25

Mat 24:25

Behold, I have told you before.


Tools specific to Mat 24:26

Mat 24:26

Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert, go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers, believe it not.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Steveng, OUR GOD has not given US that is Born Again Christians a spirit of fear. and those who claim to be Christians who lack any of the above listed may not be Saved at all, or certainly lacking in a relationship with the Lord, totally Ignorant of His Word and promises, infants or babies or just plain carnal worldly Christians who follow "Chicken Little's" like yourself, also displaying a lack of understanding. Time to GROW UP StevenG. Your immaturity is clearly showing.

//Take a good look at the world around you, Luke. Fear has gripped the hearts of most people - even christians. Terror has a tight grip on the world. Love is evaporating from the face of the earth faster than you know.//

Steven,
the god you have created in your mind is being defeated day in and day out? And you claim to have faith in the Lord. Yet show no faith in the Lord at all, your faith is in Satan. Just look at your own words.
You have also have no clue why there is warnings in Scripture. Did you ever see a dangerous big hole? If there is no warning, people could fall into the hole. Warnings help the believers not to fall. There is also warnings against false teachers who speak against the assembly of belivers. Agape
---Luke on 6/30/14


Steveng, one you forgot is 2 Timothy 3. Having a form of godliness but denying the power, from such turn away.... born again Christians Steveng don't deny the power of God, because we have been raised up by His power. Philippians 3 explain. To deny the power of the cross, again Paul explains in Corinthians belong only to those who consider it foolishness, but to those who are saved, "it is" the power of God. The falling away of the Gospel is the preaching of a false gospel that denies redemption through His Blood and His Life. Genuine Christians are KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD, and we know it, and live in that truth.

kathr4453: "...your definition of "fall away" and mine are not the same."

So what is YOUR definition of "falling away?"

What is the bible's definition of "falling away?"

What are some verses concerning "falling away?" A few to jog your memory:

Hebrews 6:4-6
Matthew 24:10-13
Matthew 24:24
Hebrews 3:12-19
James 1:12
1 Timothy 4:16
2 Corinthians 11:3
Revelation 2:4-5
1 Timothy 4:1
2 Peter 2:20-22
2 Peter 1:5-10
Revelation 3:11
Jude 1:24
1 John 2:1

Luke 18:8
---Steveng on 6/29/14


Steveng, your definition of "fall away" and mine are not the same. Just as the new Pharoah in Egypt forgot or fell away from the blessings Joseph brought and hardened his heart, so too we see the world forgetting the REAL TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL, and hardening it's heart. But we also see that God knows those who are His, just like in that time in Egypt, inspite of the heartened hearts and hatred toward God's people..God is still faithful. Don't you see the parallel Steveng? Even Revelation uses the parallel. Could Pharoah have repented? Was he given chances to repent? Yet we also see many in Egypt left with Israel.

kathr4453: "The love of Christians is not growing cold either. The evil hearts of the lost is growing cold, just like in the time of Noah."

turn the Grace of GOD into a right to sin---Samuel

Samuel, you misunderstand Jude 1:4.
turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness

This refers to lust for Hagar, who is symbolic for righteousness by works of the law, Gal 4:24.
Jude 1:4 refers to legalists who turn the grace of God into righteousness by works of the law.

These legalists deny Christ by their lust for righteousness by works of the law, Tit 1:16.
And if any of them had already truly known the truth of the gospel (Heb 6:4-6) but then turned back to works of the law, then this is the willful sin (Heb 10:26) from which there is no repentance, Heb 6:4-6.

For those legalists who never knew the truth, God says repent.
---Haz27 on 6/28/14


Steveng, you may not know this, but God already WON. The love of Christians is not growing cold either. The evil hearts of the lost is growing cold, just like in the time of Noah.

God already warned these things will happen, and even more of things that will come to pass.

If perhaps you obeyed Colossians 3:1-4 you wouldn't be in such a state of fear and anxiety. Perfect love cast out fear. So it is evident by your posts you have not been perfected in Love. As you have been warned once before.....keep your mind on things ABOVE AND NOT BELOW. and STOP trying to bring Christians down here below....THAT IS EVIL.
---kathr4453 on 6/28/14


(Mark 3:23-27)
How can Satan drive out Satan?
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand, his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong mans house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong mans house.



With all the denominations, which now make up the church, wouldn't it appear the Kingdom/House of God has been divided?
Isn't it this division, which creates not one, but five or six on the same block?

People in the church turn the Grace of GOD into a right to sin. That is the most dangerous thing.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/27/14


Dear Steven,
Satan is not winning any battles. Those who belong to God, born of the Spirit are never lost. Those who belong to Satan are lost already. They don't know Satan is their father, but what they do is the desires of their father the devil. Satan has those lost only because God allows him to. Satan can do nothing without God's permission. Those falling away you mentioned were never really saved. They were imposters in the church. Agape

Brother, I love the Christ in you but I am tired of being insulted by a brother in Christ simply because I go to a denominational church.

Either surrender your resentment at denominations to our Lord Jesus or accept the fact that you are a prideful, arrogant, and not loving, follower of Christ.

Which will it be? Will you accept a rebuke from a brother and honestly evaluate your behavior or will you continue to be rebellious and speak against brothers and sisters in Christ?
---Mark_Eaton on 6/27/14


Bryan, Satan is indeed winning the battle here on earth. Prophesy says that there will be a great falling away from the faith in the end days for several reasons. One must have faith before one has fallen away, right? Don't only read the Parable of the Sower, study it, meditate on it, and pray to the Holy Spirit to help you understand it.

Prophesy says the end days will be just like in the days of Noah where only a few will be truly saved. Love has practially evaporated from the face of the earth. Take a real good look around and tell me where love is. Even among so-called denominational christians true love has taken a back seat.

There are many warnings to christians about backsliding and falling away from the faith.

And what ever you loose out of heaven I will let it loose out of heaven. Sowing the Gospel will always defeat satan it is simple as that. Galatians 6:7 sow the Gospel the let the Holy Spirit change the heart. The Gospel, everybody has the measure of Faith. Everybody has the right to know Jesus as Lord.

I am grateful for your passion to sow the Gospel. But you need wisdom and knowledge before continuing.

God told us in Romans 10:2 that Israel had zeal for God but not from knowledge. We too can slide into this same way of believing. We can be zealous in doing things for God but not in truly knowing God, knowing His Word, knowing His heart, knowing His ways.

Seek out a mature man of God that has the Christian walk you respect. Tutor under him as Timothy did Paul. It will benefit you greatly.

Bryan: "satan can never win period. "

Open your eyes, Bryan, to the world around you. Satan is indeed winning. Not ultimately, but he will try to destroy all of God's creation before Jesus returns. Why? Because Satan knows he has only a short time left before God intervenes and is wreaking havoc as much as he could throughout the world in both frequency and intensity. Even christians are falling away from the faith. Have you not read end time prophesies? What is happening in the world today is paradise compared to what is soon to become.

Dear Mark E,
I am in full agreement with your statement. I also agree with Leon's statement. The problem comes from within the church. I do not mean the spiritual church of Christ, but the visible church or congregations, who in time have come out with new teachings. In time many new prophetic ideas from individuals, have change the way people now see God, and ignore what Scripture says about God. God is not the same God that was taught when the reformation started. Man, with new ideas say their ideas came from God, and by doing so has exhalted himself above God. Agape

\\ I'm a evangalist I sow the Gospel, I'm sent out by Jesus Christ to share the Gospel \\

No, you're not.

No, you don't.

No, you weren't.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

satan can never win period. Word will not allow it. Galatians 6:7 What ever you sow that is what you reap. satan sows deception, lies what do lies do? Destory. Being he sow lies what does he reap? That is why Jesus tells us to sow the Gospel or share the Gospel what do you reap when you sow the Gospel life. Not only life but God's life. Sow the Gospel and have great life doing it.

I'm a evangalist I sow the Gospel, I'm sent out by Jesus Christ to share the Gospel when I share the Gospel even the muslims bow down. Because there is not condemnation in sharing the Gospel. Even atheist bow down when I sow the Gospel. There is no judgment in the Gospel. I leave that part to the Holy Ghost I share the Godpel as Jesus said.

While God has ultimate power, even unto Satan, but the god of this world is still Satan. Satan has had over two thousand years to infiltrate and divide christiandom up into tens of thousands of denominations. Today's denominational churches sway to every cultural trend that comes along just to increase membership - and homosexulality, today's trend, has divided up denominations even more. As a result, the biggest threat is from within.

What does the bible say about the falling away of the faithful (save the remnant)? Two things: persecution and the ways of this world. Remember, one must have faith to begin with before one is fallen away.

There is no threat. God is running the show, and belief in Jesus will continue.

Here is the question, what is the biggest threat to evil? Jesus and he is in your heart is he not?

Why would they be that way? Maybe It is true what Jesus said, "They will hear the word and not care" fowls will eat it or maybe they only believed it for a season." They look at you and roll there eyes?
---Bryan on 6/23/14


The biggest threat to Christianity is apathy.

How many brothers and sisters do each of us know that are disinterested or not passionate about their faith? How many Believers would be called "depressed" if you examine their faith and works? How many of us get tired and frustrated at the lack of help when it comes to service in the church? (I used to attend a 8000 member church and it was difficult to get 100 men to serve in ministry)

Jesus warned about being lukewarm. Perhaps, we should be heeding His warning.
---Mark_Eaton on 6/23/14


Those things can happen. Paul spent many nights in jail for sharing the Gospel. But we have the victory in Jesus.

The 1 enemy of God's church & Christians is the disobedient, evil & wicked one. The ungodly one attacks from outside & inside based on his scheme, which is greater is of no significance to me.

rules of combat know who your enemy is. Your enemy Is not disbelieve it is not lack of faith it is not your brother. Your enemy is satan he does not like you period. He will eat even his on because he hates mankind. If your a believer he will hate you even more. And try to decieve you to death. That is what he does.
---Bryan on 6/23/14


Very true Warwick. The Church is under violent attack MOSTLY FROM WITHIN by the chaff/goats who are hellbent on sabotaging the faith of believers & discouraging seekers who might become believers.
---Leon on 6/22/14


Leon that threat will come both from within and without. Within the believer there is the mind of Christ, but without there is the anti-christ mentality of this world's system that attempts to infiltrate. That mentality fueled by the unyielded carnality of ones thinking, is a constant threat to the promised rest that is found only in Christ Jesus. "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be."Rom 8:7 [For that law is to love Him with the love that is in, and of Him, and to extend that love to our fellow man]. It is that sensually based mentality focused on the externals that will open some within the Church to the deception of the spurious messiah.
---josef on 6/23/14


Bryan, Leon refers to the Church, the followers of Christ, who are under mortal threat for many reasons. Christians are attacked, imprisoned and killed by atheist regimes because they hate God's followers. In Islamic countries Islamists are imprisoning and murdering tens of thousands of Christians.

In western countries Christianity is under attack via evolutionary indoctrination which tells people there is no God, nor any need of God. And many lose their faith every day because most do not have anyone who can show them that evolution is a belief, not a fact.

Christianity is also under attack from within as those who have compromised with humanistic worldly thinking undermine the faith of countless numbers of Christians.

Nothing will stop Christianity, but individual Christians could easily be in danger from many things.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/22/14


Bryan: Your statement is for the most part true, but that's not the question. True, the enemy can never defeat God. But, he will keep on trying until his time is up. So, again, does the biggest threat to the Church come from without or within?
