Meldoy:

Apology accepted it is very vital when speaking as Christians that we all speak the truth in love...

Jn 3:16 doesn't mean all is save, it simply states that those who believe will be save meaning only the ones that God has chosen to elect...

See, further Jn 6:37-39, 44-45, 64-65, Jn 17:6-9, 18:5-9...

Jn10:26-29.

John:

If in any way my message appeared to you under an insulting way, sorry about it, but my point was - that as GOD'S WORD says: My interpretation of those two words and in accordance to the way we understand the language that GOD has provided for everyone of us, it exactly means what I believe and share with you and in no way I meant to say anything derogatory or to deviate or ignore the subject but my belief that any one as THE LORD has given us individual Wisdom, we could understand clearly what John 3:16 means . . . now please explain your own definition of that if you wish - meanwhile - may THE LORD impart HIS BLESSINGS AND GUIDANCE to all of us - as we all need it . . . blessings!
---Melody on 2/26/19


Melody, I am grateful that you are trying to save me as you see Salvation. You don't give up on me.

You still refuse to tell me your Faith/Church?

Please don't insult me by saying 'Christian'. That's everyone on CN. Most state what like of a Christian. Also don't tell me Jesus' Church unless that is the title of your Church.

I wouldn't be surprise with the 66,000 different denominational Churches floating around.

Even Steveng has told us his Church is like a store front Church (no offense). I don't know how else to describe your unique type gathering. I believe you also go home to home for your meetings.

So Melody stop shielding your Church from scrutiny. That's like throwing rocks and hiding behind a tree.
---Nicole_Lacey on 2/25/19


Good points Melody.

Mike a Christian is guided by two main principals. Love God above everything. Two love everyone.

When we fail we seek forgiveness GOD picks us up and dusts us off and helps us. We are children of GOD.

When you love others you will follow Romans 13.

melody said, "
"For GOD so loved the world (everyone) that whosoever (anyone) believe in HIM - shall not perish - but have everlasting life" . . . what's so difficult for you to understand that? - and in my previous message - didn't I mention something to the respect? . . . many haven't been able to heard The Gospel - so how can they believe? - let's trust in THE LORD'S MERCY AND PERFECT JUSTICE about it - right?"

First, insults only stand to mean that your unable to provide an answer for what you calim to believe...

The word world in Jn 3:16 doesn't mean everyone and whosoever has a requirement that you refuse to respond to...

---john9346 on 2/25/19




John:

Anyone that has the mature intelligence to understand something so simple coming from GOD'S WORD - will accept it's meaning:

"For GOD so loved the world (everyone) that whosoever (anyone) believe in HIM - shall not perish - but have everlasting life" . . . what's so difficult for you to understand that? - and in my previous message - didn't I mention something to the respect? . . . many haven't been able to heard The Gospel - so how can they believe? - let's trust in THE LORD'S MERCY AND PERFECT JUSTICE about it - right?
---Melody on 2/25/19


Mike:

Why putting together those questions when obviously they contradict each other? . . . it's either living by THE LORD'S SPIRIT GUIDANCE in someone that have been truly Born Again - and not by doing those things that are under disobedience to THE LORD - for a new conscience HE has put in the true Believer - that person will receive not only The Wisdom how to live accordingly to GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS but as well of getting the discernment of what is from THE LORD and what is not and how to act to the respect - even thou as we all are imperfect Human Beings - we could sometimes fall under the wrong discernment - but a sincere Christian will always strive to live by obedience to GOD'S WORD . . . blessings!
---Melody on 2/25/19


define 'obedience' to the scriptures? what are they? giving tithe or televangelist exploiting bible & poor, doing good works or is it salvation by works, obeying the word of God or being brainwashed by the religious leaders, worshipping on 1st day sunday celebrating easter or tradition of men & not the commandments of GOD including 7th day sabbath, preaching gospel but you will be called a cult if it is not accdg to other's doctrine, is it faith or blind obedience? i have seen it all
---mike on 2/20/19


melody said, "Why do you come back to the same dilemma? - of course THE LORD said that 'a sinner is dead in trespasses and sin' - but you have to understand it in the spiritually sense - he is not taking about a physically dead body."

Ma'am, the word in Eph 2 for dead is the Greek Word, "Nekros." when Paul wrote this word he stressed that sinners are dead just like a Physical Body is dead...

Melody in Jn 3:16 the whosoever has a requirement tell us all what is it??
---john9346 on 2/11/19


John:

Why do you come back to the same dilemma? - of course THE LORD said that 'a sinner is dead in trespasses and sin' - but you have to understand it in the spiritually sense - he is not taking about a physically dead body - and that's the reason that HE paid for our sins by HIM giving HIS LIFE for us - for only THE LORD'S PRECIOUS BLOOD can cleanses us from our sins and revive us under HIS SPIRIT to become a new creature under GOD'S COVERING - no one that just try to keep The Commandments can be set free, but only by GOD'S GRACE as we experienced being Born Again and then GOD'S SPIRIT within gives us a new heart and the power to live under HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS and into defeating our own sinfulness!
---Melody on 2/10/19




John:

THE LORD has given you the intelligence to know what "whosoever' means - right?
and the rest leave it unto THE LORD for true it is: Multitudes upon multitudes in this world iwhich we live they can't believe in HIM and why? - because they haven't had the blessing and opportunity of listen to The Gospel - so then - what to do? - may we all if by THE LORD'S GRACE we have been Born again - be willing to be an Instrument in GOD'S HANDS to go unto the lost and guide them into Salvation and Eternal life that is only through our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST - Amen!
---Melody on 2/10/19


Melody:

You never answered the question:

question in Jn 3:16 what is the requirement for the whosoever??

---john9346 on 2/9/19


samuelBB7 said, "
But a person will do right because they Love GOD and love others. Love works."

But where does the ability to love God comes from God or the sinner??

Before answering remember Rom 3:10-12, 8:7-8, and Jn 3:19-20??

SamuelBB7 would have us all to believe that a Dead Person in a coffin has the ability to love,yet, Scripture states that the sinner is dead...
---john9346 on 2/8/19


I agree with the proposition.

But it is not as doing perfect works. But we are perfected by Christ by Grace through faith.

But a person will do right because they Love GOD and love others. Love works.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/7/19


John:

No, it's not my position to believe that every person who has ever lived would be saved - and to THE LORD HIMSELF I often bring this very sad situation that have existed in the past and thru all times: How many multitudes are not saved and that for different reasons and many of them - no fault of their own, because they never heard The Gospel of Salvation to have an opportunity to repent before THE LORD and call upon HIS NAME for the redemption of their sins? . . . but as THE LORD IS A MERCIFUL GOD - I do want to believe that under HIS MERCY will be acting - as HE said: "And how would they believe in ME if no one has told them?" -
---Melody on 2/7/19

O Cluny,

you cant face me in a substantive debate so you have to resort to childish tattics lol :-)

I've seen several of your spelling errors should have wrote them down :-)
---john9346 on 2/6/19


john9346* In the verses pertaining parables you raised you must show that they are prescriptive in order to refute The Sinner's Ability to choose or reject The Almighty God??

Jesus did! "Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you, because they believed in John and repented while the Pharisees did not! The same which all of the Parables!

No John you MUST prove that they did not have the ability to choose.

john9346*On a Previous Posting you agreed that the Prodigal son is descriptive are now contradicting yourself??

My bad, sometimes you have to remember who are you dealing with, still waiting for your fallible man-made interpretation of the podigal Son:)

---Cluny on 2/5/19


John:

Anyone can give their own interpretation to The Scriptures, but that doesn't mean it's going to be right: What you are saying is this: That only those whom THE LORD has elected can be saved, right? - what did THE LORD say in Revelation 3:20 = "If any man hear my voice" - what does "any" means to you? - also, before I mentioned to you John 3:16 "For GOD so loved the world" . . . again you are contradicting GOD'S WORD . . . you are wrongly discerning what THE LORD so clearly said and free to do so - but in total disagreement with you I am!
---Melortion_ody on 2/5/19


melody said, "in this accept that you are wrong,"

Melody, Revelations 3:19-22 is a warning passage to the elect,furthermore, if you read the context of vs 19-22 Jesus is talking to those of whom he has already chosen his own his elect.

This passage is a warning to the Elect and those who aren't elect who will become elect...
---john9346 on 2/5/19


reuben said,"Remember you believe in sola scriptura."

Sir, it is because I am Sola Scriptura that I am Tota Scriptura... meaning all of Scripture must be understood in all of its context...

In the verses pertaining parables you raised you must show that they are prescriptive in order to refute The Sinner's Ability to choose or reject The Almighty God??

john9346*
The tax collectors and prostitutes on the parable of the two son in Matt 21:31"Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you, because they believed in John and repented while the Pharisees did not!

A parable has a meaning as Jesus explained to his Apostles about the story of the the sower in Mk 4:10-12 and the Pharisees know he was talking about them in the parable of the wicked tenants.Remember you believe in sola scriptura but when it hits where it counts, you need to come up with a word like it is a //"Prescriptive." but "Descriptive."/// So tell me in your own words about the Prodigal son.
---Ruben on 2/3/19


To John9346:

You said: "The sinner possess not the ability to repent" - in this accept that you are wrong, for as you will read next THE WORDS from our LORD JESUS CHRIST (and HE gave us the ability to comprehend exactly the meaning of what HE said in Revelation 3: 19,20,22:

"As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: Be zealous therefore and repent".

"Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with ME".

"He that has an ear, let him hear what THE SPIRIT says unto the churches".
---Melody on 2/2/19


reuben said, "But does have the ability to call for back-up, He can like the sinner choose to stand still or make a move!"

But sir the sinner is dead, dead people cant speak or call right?

Sinners have no ability according to Romans 3:10-12, 8:7-8, Eph 2:1-6.

You quoted a parable sir that is not, "Prescriptive." but "Descriptive." its a "Parable."...

BTW, you don't believe in Sola Scriptura remember???

--john9346 *Sinners are Spirtually Dead


The podigal son parable is a great example of someone spiritually dead "But when he came to himself he said..(Here he realized he had hit rock bottom)...Then he repented and said "Father(GOD)I have sinned against Heaven and before you, I am no longer worthy to be called your son.The Father(GOD) said lets celebrate and said " For this son of mine was DEAD, and is alive again, he was LOST and is found." LK 15: 11-32

But does have the ability to call for back-up, He can like the sinner choose to stand still or make a move!

Hello readers:

Melody is unable to contextually address the Scriptures when they totally contradict her teachings of believing that sinners can either choose or reject The Living Christ??

She is unable to recognize the difference between a Sinner's Duty and a Sinner's Inability... not the same thing...
---john9346 on 1/27/19


John: Please ask THE LORD for understanding spiritual things and that of course - come from HIS WORD - HE said: "Repent and be saved" - "For GOD so loved the world, that HE gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that whosoever believes in HIM - shall not perish - but have everlasting life" - if you don't comprehend this and want to keep on arguing about something that is Biblical - no more mention me - go to THE LORD if you are willing to come to the right comprehension of it . . . Selah!
---Melody on 1/26/19


melody said, "What are you making a problem where there's none? -."

Ma'am, there is a serious problem when you teach that sinners have the ability to choose or reject God this is heresy my friend...

John:

What are you making a problem where there's none? - whatever your analogy - put it aside - accept GOD'S WORD and if you recognize that you are a sinner like the rest of us: "Repent before THE LORD of your sins - believe in your heart that THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONY WAY OF SALVATION and ask HIM to come into your heart and redeem you of your sins: If THE LORD sees the sincerity of your heart, you then will become a Child of GOD for now and forever - and of course - before studying The Bible - ask THE LORD that through HIS HOLY SPIRIT HE may reveal IT to you for you spiritual maturity and into becoming a Witness for others to come to THE LORD - this is GOD'S DESIRE for all of HIS OWN!
---Melody on 1/25/19


melody said, "In reference to The Scriptures you mentioned and that according to you - are contradictory."

They don't contradictory but address difference aspects of the sinner (duty) and (ability Rom 3:10-12 ability repent and be save (duty)

So do you think duty and ability are the same ting??

a police officer has a duty to stop a robbery but if he doesn't have a gun he doesn't have the ability to stop the robbery...

You see, not the same thing...
---john9346 on 1/24/19


John:

In reference to The Scriptures you mentioned and that according to you - are contradictory to what I mentioned about repentance - and in Romans 3:10,12 = "As is written, there is none righteous, no, not one". They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable, there is none that does good, no, not one".

So in that - what does THE LORD is emphasizing? - that "We all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD" and in order to obtain salvation - we all need to repent first and that by believing in THE ONLY WAY of Salvation that is through our LORD JESUS CHRIST . . . Selah!
---Melody on 1/24/19


meloey said, "
And I'm not going to argue with you -that'll be foolish! So according to you - even contradicting GOD'S WORD it's okay?" . . period!

Ma'am, its not a matters of arguing but of understanding...

Repent and be saved is a matter of duty not ability.

The sinner possess not the ability to repent see, Rom 3:10-12 Eph 2:1-7. for only god can do this see Jn 6:37-45, 64-65, Jn 17:1-9. Take note how theses truth are in context...

Lets address verses in the context of Scripture as oppose to irrelevant matters??

david said, "God saves those he favors, those who find themselves in Gods Grace.
How do we get into the Grace of God. It all starts with believing and acting on what Jesus taught in his Gospel. (John 14:21-23)."

///So you HAVE to believe and to act on his teaching to be in God's grace, he does not do it for you, you must react!///



---Ruben on 1/21/19


John:

And I'm not going to argue with you -that'll be foolish! So according to you - even contradicting GOD'S WORD it's okay? - THE LORD said it and I repeat it: "Repent and be saved" . . . period! - and by the way, if you have some sensitivity about GOD - you wouldn't be spelling it as HE was one of those pagan 'gods' - even in that respect - your heart shows where you are in reverence to THE ONLY TRUE GOD!

Repent before THE LORD, ask HIM that under HIS MERCY - to save you and then, start reading The Bible for unless you are Born Again - you'll never accept THE TRUTH that is in THE LORD: "And you shall now THE TRUTH, and THE TRUTH shall make you free"!
---Melody on 1/19/19


meloey said, "THE LORD said: "Repent and be saved". - so clearly THE LORD it's admonishing the sinner that in order first for THE LORD to save anyone - repentance is needed-"

Meloey these verses are addressing the Sinner's Duty not the ability, for no sinner can repent except God grants it see, Jn 6:44-45.

John 3:16 the Greek Word for world (kosmos) doesn't meant every person who has ever lived.

Interestingly enough if you continue reading The Lord Jesus says the sinner loves darkness rather than light see, 17-21...

Preaching the gospel is God's Meanings but god is the one who decides who believes and hears.

David, amen... my friend God saves thoes he chooses he favors whom he wills.

I'd only add that Jn 14:21-23 is a result of God regenerating the sinner not the cause see, Jn 3:3-5, 6:37-39, 44-45, 64-65 all in John

Titus 3:5-7.

The salvation of the sinner is an act of God alone and that is if he so chooses that particular person...---john9346

I agree.
Most church doctrines teach we are not saved by what we do,...which is very true. But...when you listen to the testimony of folks, they claim they were saved when they did something...sinners prayer...baptism..etc.

God saves those he favors, those who find themselves in Gods Grace.

melanie said, "Are you truly saved by making THE LORD JESUS CHRIST your SAVIOR AND LORD."

No because a sinner possess not the ability to make Jesus his or her Lord or Saviour...

The salvation of the sinner is an act of God alone and that is if he so chooses that particular person...

I was SAVED when my parents had me baptized at 1 years old.

But, I have endangered my Salvation as everyone else.

Obedience to the Scriptures is not only thing we are called to be to be obedient.

Even Jesus expected people to be obedient to Moses and those who took his chair.

Note, Jesus didn't tell them to obey their Holy Scriptures they had.

Matthew 23:1-3

BTW, since the IRS isn't in the Bible does that mean I don't have to obey the IRS?

Or since slavery is tolerated and Jesus NEVER said a Word against Slavery written in the Bible does that mean it is OKAY to have Slaves?
