Commandments From Jesus
  
Some Great points Jerry.

But remember when Jesus asked the Jewish lawyer what it the Greatest commandment.

Luke 10:25-28 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

They knew. But like many today they didn't want to follow.

The Orthodox church in general teaches the Ten Commandments are moral laws in effect.


Pope Francis Prayers
  
Nicole you don't use dirty water to wash with. When the water comes out of the tap into the Bathtub. Could you drink that water?


How To Read The Bible
  
Agreed Nicole. We also have to recognize who certain words are for.

I am not going to build an ark in my back yard. It is too small anyway.

But the words of the Bible can be twisted.

2Peter 3:15,16 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation, even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you, As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

God is love.


Dead Spouse Benefit Tithe
  
We benefit from Grace. Our works don't save.

Now do you mean that they will get extra rewards for your actions?

I don't think so.


What Is Apophtatic Theology
  
Dear Jerry. No. You didn't hurt my feelings. On some discussion sites I am a Satan following false teaching the doctrine of demons as a cultist. Knowing Jesus is correct I ignore them.

Your snowflake comment seemed general.

I am not leftist. I am middle of the road.

But one important main point. We are a minority. If we don't stand up for minority people to defend the rights of all. Are we not working against ourselves. You know that the Government will turn against us. Trump works to make that easy.

Love thy neighbor is especially to poor and persecuted. All who are persecuted we need to help.

How To Read The Bible
  
Good point. One problem I find from many people. Is they never try to make all scripture agree. That take one or two verses and then state a doctrine. But as Peter points out in 2nd Peter some can twist the words of Paul okay to live in sin.


What Is Apophtatic Theology
  
Jerry I am far from a snowflake. Born in 1952 in a poor neighborhood. In the Southeast side of Houston, Texas. I know what being hit and hitting others feels like.

But I by the Grace of GOD became a Christian. Jesus gave the Commandment to love everyone. You don't seem to do that. As a Seventh day Adventist I am to love and care for all people. Especially the poor.

You in your words don't convey love or caring.

Let us look to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Read the SOP.

GOD is love.


How To Read The Bible
  
Dear Barb

I would change the words you wrote just a little.

My salvation was a gift from GOD by the blood of Jesus Christ.

But as a Born Again Christian, I will walk in the way of the Holy Spirit listening to the Word of GOD and the Spirit of Prophecy to find truth and live for Jesus.

Love is to be my reason. Jesus is to be My Lord.

How To Be Happy
  
Amen Cluny good words and great illustration.

Three suggestions. Listen to good Christian music every chance you get. It helps build you up.

Read the Bible and pray every day.

Find a way to help others even if it just telling people have a good day or helping someone. If you can do more do so.

These things help us to stop looking at ourselves. They help us to look to Jesus and help other.

GOD bless.


How To Read The Bible
  
Good points John. thank you.

I usually suggest reading Mark first. It is easy and tells us what Jesus did. Then John. But that is just my thoughts.


How To Be Happy
  
Jennifer. Jesus loved you so much He left Heaven was born in poverty and died on the cross for you.

He knows how you feel. Trust him. Read the Bible about how he suffered for you.

Paul murdered Christians. GOD forgave him.

Believe his words and actions that he loves you.

Listen to good Christians music and find a way to help others. These will help you keep your mind on Jesus.
Love.


Still Call Themselves Sinners
  
Paul wrote.

Romans 5:8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Read the whole chapter and chapter 3 of Romans. We were saved not because of good we did. But in spite of the evil we have done.

I don't see where any early Church Fathers exalted the RCC. Most of that came latter.

Now some ideas from the Early Church fathers are taken up by the RCC.

The RCC claims power from the beginning. That popes have always been in charge of the church. That is incorrect from the truth in history.


Still Call Themselves Sinners
  
Paul is not lying. People take Paul and rearrange his words and thoughts to make lies.

Peter explained this.

2Peter 3:15,16 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation, even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you, As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.


Did Jesus Pay For Our Sins
  
To be lawless is to have no law and be living in sin.

To be under the law is to be living in sin. So the law would be condemning you.

To try to save yourself by the law or works is useless. Since we cannot atone for our sins by works.

But to live for Jesus in love is what we are supposed to do. In Matthew 25 many people claimed to follow GOD. But didn't help others. They were lost.


Still Call Themselves Sinners
  
This is not a real SDA joke. But it could be true.

The SDA spoke at all the funerals of his friends. Then died.

His friends came to see him. They spoke of how with no death in heaven there is no meat to eat. The SDA said to them. I already knew that and started learning to eat like I was in heaven already.

One Point only about half of SDA are pure vegetarian.

Did Jesus Pay For Our Sins
  
Many people don't understand that Noah found Grace in the eyes of the Lord.

But so did all the Jews especially David. Grace is not new. Otherwise all those who lived before Jesus would not be saved.

The Jews showed their belief in Jesus by offering blood sacrifices. Which along with the temple and rituals pointed to Jesus Christ.

We are saved by looking to our crucified and risen Savior.

Those filled with love and the Spirit work. Why because they are filled with love and the Spirit. No fruits. No love.


Are Current Events Bad
  
Haz I am not defending liberals. I am stating as a moderate that what is going on is overboard.

When Republicans are doing things that are bad for business. Then you know it is bad. In a Recent Houston Texas Chronicle article. A Business leader was explaining how Trump and his policies are hurting the Houston area in Oil and Shipping.

My wife has a preexisting condition. Our insurance by the Trump plan would make us as far as I can tell. Unable to pay for her medicine.

Trump and Republicans are helping to put to death people. They falsely accused Obama of doing what they are doing. Making it so children on Medicaid will die. That should not be a left or right issue.


Still Call Themselves Sinners
  
Mark. Sin is more then the letter of the law. It is the Spirit of the law.

In Mathew 5 Jesus pointed out the law don't commit adultery. Then he shows that thinking about committing adultery is a sin.

He speaks of don't murder but adds that hatred is murder.

The letter is the minimum of civilized and religious rules.

But Christians will not follow the least. They will as in Matthew 25 help those in prison. Feed the hungry.

As James put they will feed and protect the poor and helpless against the rich.

This is what we are called to do.


Doctrine Of Immaculate Conception
  
I cannot speak directly for Jerry. But mindset does not work to help us live sinless.

The Power of GOD by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. By dying to death and living to love. Those lead us to not live in sin.

We don't have the power the Resurrection power to do anything. Romans 6
