There is confusion about the judgements. The lost are in the Second Resurrection. The saved are in the first.

Both are said to be judged. I believe those who have accepted Jesus are judged before the Resurrection. Not all will receive the same rewards in heaven. I just want to be there no matter what.

The lost will be judged by how long they will burn. I am just stating my understanding. The lost will be judged by their works for punishment.

The Righteous will have their actions judged for their rewards.

I can be wrong. But that is my understanding.


Gospel For Food
Agreed force is not the way. Love others and point them to Jesus.

Living Christian Lifestyle
Love works. Why because when you love others you truly want to help them. You don't want to fight and hurt others.

Those who love GOD and love others work. It is their nature.

1John 5:2,3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Being a Christian is not complicated. Having to deal with all the falsehoods taught today is.

Christ In You
Michael if you believe in Dispensationalism you do not follow Paul.

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

2Timothy 3:15-17 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
1John 3:4
Christ in us leads us in love to follow Jesus.

Mark and Strong Ax. Great points thank you.

Did Paul Replace Judas
Calvinism is.

T Total Depravity. Humans are degenerate they have no free will.
U Unconditional Election. GOD chooses who he saves. He only loves the saved.

L Limited atonement. Jesus only died for the ones he picked to be saved.

I Irresistible Grace. When GOD chooses to save you it is because of his sovereign will. You have no choice in the Matter.

P Persistence of the Saints. Once Saved always saved. Now Calvin and early Calvinist taught that the Saved will live for Jesus because they are saved. That is no longer the common view.

The Gospel is Jesus died and rose again to save us from sin. By paying the penalty for our sin and offering us Grace. I Corinthians 15

They are not the same thing.

New Covenant With Israel
Correct all verse on a topic must be applied. My understanding is that law is established. Trying to use the law to save yourself is gone. So no more righteousness by works. If you examine the passages about the law there is often language that points to salvation by works. See Romans 3:20 law defines sin. Read 1John.

Then tell me why your view which makes Scripture contradict itself is true.

Romans 6 says we are to not continue in sin.

Scriptures Of The Early Church
True we are free to not have to live in sin.

I see many times statements are made with no proof from the Bible.

I also see accusation made. But we should never make accusations if we at properly debating on the basis we are to love each other.


Should We Pay Taxes
The Jews hated the Tax collectors. Some today still do.
You are right Cluny we are to pay our taxes.


New Covenant With Israel
Dear Kathr
Hebrew 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days saith the Lord I will put my laws into their mind and write them in their hearts: and I will be to their GOD AND THEY SHALL BE TO ME A PEOPLE.

That does not mean we have to sacrifice animals in the New. Since Jesus is the true Sacrifice.
Nor does it mean we have to believe once saved always saved to be saved. That is Salvation by doctrine not grace.

Romans 3:31 says the law is established not done away with.

We are saved by Grace to live in love. Those who live in love keep the Ten Commandments. Romans 6 and 13.

If the Commandments are gone. than sin is gone.

How Was Christianity Maintained
Yes I accept Paul's answer.

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Romans 5:1,2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Galatians 3:24,25 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

We are justified by Faith. Those who have faith will do works and walk in love. Faith then-Born Again -then we walk in love doing works. That order.

How Was Christianity Maintained
David. Jesus established some rituals. Like Baptism. Others came about in history. Having a ritual unless it contradicts what the Bible says does not make any group to not follow the Bible. Only a ritual or doctrine that does not follow the Bible is wrong.

Being human we can be wrong. But not understanding or misunderstanding does not make a person lost. We are saved by grace through faith not by doctrine.

There are two principals all Christians will live by. They Love GOD. They love and act in love to others.


Did Paul Replace Judas
Paul was an Apostle. But Judas was gone. The Bible does not say that he replaced Judas. So we cannot say that he did.

A person can say they consider him a replacement. That is certainly a point that can be considered. But it is not provable.

How Was Christianity Maintained
Hello Nicole. I once had a debate with a oneness Pentecostal to convince him the RCC is Christian.

Anyway I use the term Roman Catholic due to my background in History and that I am a little picky about terms. Which occasionally gets me in trouble with the wife. For instance there was a Universal catholic church until the Great Schism in 1054. The church was a combination of Orthodox and Roman Catholic.

We Seventh day Adventist don't drink Alcohol. I know many RCC who do.

Back when meat was banned on Fridays. I went to a Quinceanera There was still great and wonderful food.

Did Paul Replace Judas
No. Paul was a special Apostle set apart by Jesus on the Road to Damascus.

The words of Paul and Jesus agree. But some people pick small parts of the words of Paul and make it sound like Paul and Jesus don't agree.

2Pe 3:15-17
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. ...

What Is Righteous Judgement
Good point Strong ax.

Mix Of Grace Law Or
Matthew 25 is about the difference between fake Christians and real one.

They act in love of GOD and love others. Instead of just words.

Matthew 7:20-24 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

My Father in law used to say. I am Roman Catholic not like these half way people.

We use Roman Catholic to differentiate between the church lead by the Bishop of Rome and those who are not under his leadership. I also live in Texas. Many Hispanics say Roman Catholic. But it is not universal as you say.

For instance to me the Seventh day Adventist church is catholic. Since we are of many nations and people throughout the world.

But we are not under the Bishop of Rome. Our High Priest is Jesus Christ.

Roman Catholics are indeed Christians. We disagree with the Theology.

Brother Sister In Christ
Nicole they are not twin brothers according to Latter day Saints doctrines. Just same Father different mothers.

Since GOD has multiple wives.

The Book of Mormon has very bad history.

American Indians are not Jews.

New Covenant With Israel
The problem in Galatians is that the Pharisee Christians wanted the Gentiles to keep Circumcision and add works to be saved.

The New Covenant has the law written in our hearts. Hebrews 8:8-10 The church is Israel.

The Ten Commandments are to be written in our hearts in Love. Christians obey because they are saved. They walk in love. Love fulfills the law. Romans 13. When you love you don't want to break the Ten Commandments.
