Is Jesus A Spirit
  
Carol you will see Jesus at His return to earth, in the body of His resurrection, in the image of the Heavenly, His transformed body, His celestial body. And "we know, that when he shall appear, we shall be like him: for we shall see him as he is." When we see Jesus, we will have seen the Invisible Father In the only way that He will ever be physically perceived, for as Jesus Himself has said, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" and where Jesus is, the Father and the Holy Spirit will be also.


Does God Have Faith
  
Trey please know that I have not ignored your question here, however it is basically the same question that you asked here 2 years ago, and my thoughts concerning this hasn't changed. Concerning Rom 3:3, this verse means exactly what it says. The word translated faith in this verse is from the transliteration "Pistis" which is used in every verse of scripture where the word faith is the translation. And the Etymology of the word is to persuade, or to allow one's self to be persuaded to have confidence or to be assured.


Why Do Good Works
  
Trey, good works are the result of the Father grace, as His Divine influence upon the heart or focus of man, it is His Divine favor that opens within man a place spiritually, and a condition mentally to believe and receive His salvation through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, and all who adhere to, rely on, an trust in Him, He works through, both to will and to do that which is pleasing in His sight.


Trump Kim Prayer
  
"He has done more good for the human race than any president since Reagan."

Jerry what good do you 'think' he has done for the "human race"?


God's Spokesperson
  
Mark I could be mistaken, only Steveng can clarify what he meant by his question.


God's Spokesperson
  
Mark I understood Steveng's use of spokesperson to mean one who speaks His word through the inspiration He provides. And by His word we, as believers, have the mind of Christ. 1Co 2:16>Jhn 16:13-15 I for one believe that simply because it is written. If that make me gullible, then I will be gullible with faith. And Mark, how do we make disciples if not by sharing His word?


God's Spokesperson
  
True Strong axe, therefore Isaiah was instructed to "Sanctify the LORD of hosts Himself, and let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread. Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." So the question is what is the law and testimony? I believe that law to be love and that testimony to be the testimony of Jesus, both of which can be found in the pages of scripture. So it is for us to be like those in Berea, and search the Scriptures daily to find out whether what is being spoken is truly the "word of God". If we do that, we can indeed know, by the Spirit of God, who speaks for God.


God's Spokesperson
  
"What qualifies a person to be God's spokesperson?" Having a mind, attitude and disposition that has been opened to a willingness to submit to Him by His lead without protest, that He might speak without hinderence.


Forgive Their Sins
  
Correction: Nicole, what does mind reading have to do with it? A man knows when an offense has been committed against him, it is those sins he is called to forgive.

All We Need Is Love
  
Excellent response Mark.


Finish Here January 2018
  
The inspiration of book of Jude is shown by the witness of other inspired books. "Rebellious angels not keeping their proper abode being kept in chains," for instance is witness by "God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment," 2Pe 2:4 "The prophesy of Enoch" concerning the return of Jesus is also witnessed by other scriptures, even by Jesus himself. You asked StrongAxe, "Why do you?" put much value on it, is implied. I'll ask, Why not? Why would what's written in the book, be questioned by anyone?


Without Law No Sin
  
I'm resending this post to correct the obvious mistakes.
I know this question was directed to Hays, but if I may, The word no in 1 John 1:8 is the same [Greek] word, "ou", translated not in verse 10, and in over a thousand other places in the [N.T.], and It is my belief that it should have been translated that same way in verse 8. How did I come to that conclusion? Simple, by a plain reading of verse 7 and 9. If we are truly cleansed, and as believers we are, from all sin, there can be logically no sin remaining. And the worshippers once purged of sin should have had no more conscience of sins.


Without Law No Sin
  
"How do you reconcile 1 John 3:9 with 1 John 1:8: If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."---StrongAxe

Correction to prior post, this line was meant to read The word no in 1 John 1:8 is the same [Greek] word, "ou", translated not in verse 10


Going To Purgatory
  
If the concept of purgatory is biblical, it's contradicted by that which is clearly stated. "[Man's] breath goeth forth, he returns to his earth, In that very day his thoughts perish. You [Father] take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. For dust [they] are, And to dust [they] shall return. The living know that they will die, But the dead know nothing,..For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth? Will You work wonders for the dead? Shall the dead arise and praise You? Death can not celebrate thee:.. cannot hope for your truth."
