Mix Of Grace Law Or
  
Jesus died on the cross for our sins. And Jesus rose from the dead on the third day. And now Jesus is Lord of all.

We have been reconciled to God by the death of Jesus on the cross. And now > "we shall be saved by His life," our Apostle Paul says in Romans 5:10. He does not say we already have been saved, but "we shall be saved by His life."

So, even though we have trusted in Jesus so we have gotten started in our salvation, "we shall be saved by His life." I think this means the life of His love in us making us more and more like Jesus > Romans 5:5, 1 John 4:17.

And works in this love can exercise our character to become stronger in how Jesus is.


New Covenant With Israel
  
Jerry, I think the New Covenant was made with the Jews who obeyed Jesus.


Christ Baptist Church
  
Monk, there are more for you to discover. You might look in a yellow pages listing or on the Net.

Not all Protestants are busy with criticizing what names Catholic parishes use. Episcopal churches can very frequently use names of their saints.

But others use things like "Faith", "Bible", "Victory", "Overcomers", "Grace Gospel", "New Hope", and various others.

By the way, I call myself "com7fy8" (c: including comfy in this name, because Hebrews 13:5 says, "be content with such things as you have" and God's love makes us unconditionally content.


Non Biblical Manger Scenes
  
In any case, we need to make sure there is nothing mangy in us. But in us we need to be the nativity scene of Jesus, by loving and caring the way God wants >

"And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." (Ephesians 4:32)

I remember that the three magi came from a distance, and arrived a while after Jesus was born. But, in their hearts they would desire to be present at the nativity. So, spiritually they could be present . . . like how we can be there, by imagining being there and wishing we could have been there (c:

We can be with Jesus by loving the way Jesus was loving us by coming to this earth. So, thank You, Jesus, and happy birthday ! ! !


Going To Purgatory
  
Hebrews 12:4-11 shows how we now can get our Heavenly Father's correction. So, purgatory can be a doctrine of procrastination to what will not happen, instead of getting the real correction which we can get now. Because God is able to do the real correction we need, in this life.

We need to actively seek God, then, for His correction. And >

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation" (in Philippians 2:14-16) . . .

not later after we die, but right "in the midst of" this selfish world's "crooked and perverse generation".

With God, this is possible now (c:


Is Christmas Pagan
  
Using a so-called pagan day for a good purpose is not pagan.

But it is pagan to claim any day to belong to Satan and his kingdom!!!!

Because every day belongs to Jesus, for His purpose, because Jesus Christ is the Lord of all.

And what was meant for evil God is able to use for His good, like He did with the situation of Joseph > Genesis 37-50.

So, our attention needs to be with God and all He is doing.

"Test all things, hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Test each thing for the good which God can do with it.


Judge Roy Moore Apologies
  
I think people jumping to conclusions might need to apologize to themselves and get with God so they don't do that.

For all I know, she could have done a forgery, but this does not automatically mean he is not guilty of things she has accused him of doing. Plus, one forgery does not mean he is innocent of other wrong things.

And God has given us the "do not bear false witness" command because God knows humans do on purpose falsely accuse people. So, for all I know, any number of women could be lying.

I am curious if there is evidence that a number of them have ever been at the same time and place where accused men have been.

Also, one might accuse truly, but others could be jumping on the band wagon.


Is Senator Warren A Native
  
If I use the name of a legitimate Native American in a way which has a disrespectful meaning, this could be creating a new way of discrimination, plus demeaning a woman by using her name in a poor way.

But lying is nothing new.

But each individual is unique, so I might do better to take the adventure of facing the challenge to have each person speak for one's own self about why each one does what he or she does.

It is too lazy to try to speak for everyone in just one way, I would say (c:

But a simple answer might be that ones for Donald will ignore his wrongs, while they criticize the wrongs of the opposition. But I think this would be lazy, versus making the effort to be really honest.


Was Hitler A Socialist
  
What is generally accepted as fact about Adolf supports, in my opinion, that he was a narcissist.

The narcissist can adopt and use what people esteem . . . so the narcissist can look superior, and gain control for what he or she wants to use people to get.

So, in case Adolf were to express certain socialist ideas, this might not have meant he really believed in them, but may be he was trying to gain power and favor which he felt could come with those ideas.

For a while, wasn't he trying to get support with Russia? And Russia was somehow socialist and a big power. So, Adolf could have been trying to collect power and favor, by adopting Russia, though he might not have any ideology except him, himself, and he.


Right Versus Left
  
Monk Brendan, you said something like that leftist people can be doing more for needy people.

Is this because they love people, or can it be because a number of leftist people love votes? . . . though not all, I would say.

And I have offered how certain very evil people will be chameleons . . . using a group for their predating and using people for what they want.

Therefore, I would get to know each member of a group and let each one have an opportunity to speak for oneself, and not assume I was being told the truth! (c:


Christ In You
  
They both mean we have Jesus in us as our new growing inner Person > Galatians 4:19. The spiritual reality is the same and deeper than what any words can explain, I think. So, I am not sure I could really tell you what the difference is but > I'll try >

We "in Christ" brings out how God has brought us out of sin, so now we are in the body of Jesus > 2 Corinthians 5:17.

"Christ in" us brings out how Jesus is growing in each of us as our new inner Person.

Either term, though, fits with how every child of God is "one spirit with Him" (1 Corinthians 6:17). Either "in", then means we are "with" Jesus!!! (c:


Right Versus Left
  
Each person can speak for oneself, about what he or she means by being "left" or "right".

In any case, I need to first be an example of admitting to how I can be wrong, but also get real correction > Hebrews 12:4-11.

I am wrong, by welcoming opportunities to look down on others who are exposed for things they have done. I need to first respond with compassion of caring prayer with hope for any wrong person . . . while, like I say, I am busy with being an example of honesty by pointing out how I can be wrong, and getting real correction of God > Hebrews 12:4-11.
