What Is Purgatory

"Not ONLY did God block the Original Sin HE infused so MUCH GRACE that Mary NEVER SINNED."

Then how do you explain "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" rm 3:23

"Surely there is no righteous man on earth who does good and never sins." Ec 7:20

"And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." Mk 10:18

What Is Love
StrongAxe, thanks for your suggestion, I didn't realize I could use another keyboard.

When it is said that God IS love, I think of who God is, what He says, He sent the Son, Jesus, the exact representation of His being, loving, giving himself even unto death...of 1 Cor 13, of Paul writing of a more excellent way and full...of
Ephesians 3:16-19
How God is higher, in ways, thought, being and there is so much more than we may have yet grasped when it comes to comprehending and knowing Him

If one is given the mind of Christ it would necessarily be a mind of love.

What Is Love
Thank you StrongAxe for your suggestion. The only problem with that idea is that I have a laptop with a built in keyboard.

I have been thinking about your comment on 1/23 and would like to respond, but first I would like to say that I agree with comments stating love is an action...and I would also like to say that I have appreciated many of your posts, in particular pointing out the importance of what scripture actually states. It's easy to make assumptions, sometimes based on what we have been taught previously, which may or may not be correct. Being open to correction is critical, IMO.

You are welcome josef.

Yes, I have been reading as able even though I have posted little of late. The blog I last posted to disappeared, and for some time my keyboard only allows me to type some letters. I've had to copy paste each letter to post...time consuming. But found a virtual keyboard and just bought a mouse and can write something in a reasonable time. Hoping to post more soon.

What Is Love
God is love. 1Jn 4:8

Nice answer josef

What Type Of Pastor
" My current Pastor is not the best speaker."

Samuelbb7, neither was Moses, but look what God did with him...

Should Christians Carry A Gun
"Of course, but that scenario isn't an excuse not to have the gun."

I wasn't aware anyone needed an excuse...however, personally I would not want to harm or kill another, and those commonly occur when a gun is used, so I prefer not to have one. Others are free to choose according to their beliefs and priorities.

Should Christians Carry A Gun
Nicole,I understand.

Having a gun MIGHT prevent rape in some instances, might not in others, and in fact might contribute to more problems, like a gun taken and used against its owner...

I only asked a question, and did not say anyone needs or doesn't need a gun. Forgive me for any confusion. As I think about it, I don't want to imply that a persons faith,(or as you brought up praying enough) stops bad things from happening or not "enough" faith, or prayer causes...Clearly many in scripture have had faith yet bad happened to them. I agree God does not cause evil, but He has allowed it, allowed some to make certain choices. I do believe God is sovereign. I may not understand all His ways, but need to trust HIS is best.

Should Christians Carry A Gun
"Chria, are you claiming woman who were raped were not PRAYING enough?"

---Nicole_Lacey on 9/24/18

Of course not.

Explain James 5:19-20
In my previous post I mentioned love holds no record of wrongs.

From 1 Cor 13:5...different versions state keep no record of wrongs, or wrongdoing, or wrong(s) suffered, some versions state think no evil, take no account of evil.wrong(s)...or impute evil.

Should Christians Carry A Gun
I've never had a gun and do not want one. When I watched movies or read stories that instilled fear I contemplated, but was not convinced. For others, that is for them to decide.

If God is our defense, our shield,why do we need guns?

Explain James 5:19-20
Multitude: Strong's G4128 plethos. A fullness. a large number.

Nicole, why can't all, being a large number, be a multitude, or can it?

If "love covers all transgressions" pv 10:12, and love/charity holds no record of wrongs 1 cor 13
then multitude could mean all.

If a sinner is turned from the error of their way, what way is he/she turned to? THE WAY=Jesus Christ, did He cover all or some sin?

Is Living Bread Literial
"Metaphors indicate a reality that is not physical, but is still real."
---StrongAxe on 8/18/18
Yes, still real, and thus " my flesh is true/real food"...

Nicole, "Those verses do NOT have the word 'Living' as in John. That's my point."

However, Jesus tells (us) "the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."

Given who Jesus is, this would not apply exclusively or only, to the few words being discussed in this chapter.

And Peter recognizes that "thou(Jesus) hast the words of eternal life"

Well said josef

Is Jesus A Spirit
RichardC on 7/28/18. Thanks!

I understand there were originally no upper and lower cases, as well as punctuation's, verses etc., so that at points in time these all were added, accurately or not, which may be correct interpretation in some instances, and incorrect in others.

With so many bible versions with differences, revisions and more, we may note these and whether or not truth is conveyed...when encountered, it may be of import to distinguish and even choose which is correct if in conflict, and that may take time. However, of note is that God reveals truth whether one believes (it) or not.

Is Jesus A Spirit
Concerning Ps 110:1, " The LORD said unto my Lord," KJV, it is interesting to note that The first use of the word lord is in all capital letters, but the second is not, and several versions do likewise.

Also, in many places in the OT there are uses of one (all caps) or another (not all caps).

Who Will Be Saved
Luke, God knows all.

Rm 8: 19-25,29-:

the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope,

the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together,not only[they], but ourselves also,...

waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

vs 29 whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son,
