Can The Lost Get Saved
  
Hi Kathr, I apologize but I am having a little bit of a hard time following what you believe. Are you stating that only the Apostles are the chosen, or that only the Jews are the chosen? I'm sorry, but I'm not following your statement as to who you believe the chosen are.

I agree 100% that salvation is of the Jews and that salvation is only through the shed blood of Christ on the cross.


Conservative Liberal Christians
  
StrongAxe, your views of Conservatives are very inaccurate.
Statistically conservatives give far more than liberals.
I most of my friends are conservative Christians.
We believe in taking care of those that cannot take care of themselves.
We love God, and his people.
We are opposed to abortion.
We are for religious freedom, freedom of speech, freedom to keep and bare arms, and limited government intervention in our lives.
We ARE opposed to giving to those that are unwilling not unable to work.
Read 2nd Thessalonians 3:10.
I do not believe that if I work hard and earn a million dollars and another guy doesn't that my money should be taken from me and given to him. That is stealing.
Exodus 20:15


Saved Before Born
  
Hi Kathr,
Please explain:
Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Your statement sounds like you deny that Christ chose us and that you do not believe in predestination. Am I correct?


Amy Barrett Woman Of Faith
  
Answering David's original question: Yes. It worries me. In all honesty many are opposed to Amy Coney Barrett simply because she is a conservative Christian nominated and elected by the Republicans. Let's put politics aside. She is a Christian! She is against abortion. Our Lord and Savior tells us in his word we are not to murder. Shouldn't we as Christians protect the most vulnerable? Who is more vulnerable than an unborn babe.
By the way, do you know what the following terms all have in common:
Embryonic, fetus, infant, adolescent, adult, geriatric?
Answer: They are all stages of human development. The scriptures tell us that life is in the blood. A person is no less important to God simply because they have not been born.


Can The Lost Get Saved
  
Hi Kathr,

Here are a few scriptures for you to think on:
Matt 15:28 The Lord said she had great faith and she was a gentile.
Matt 8:10 The Lord commends the Centurion for his faith and he is a gentile.
Acts 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
Here we see gentiles that believed the preaching and had been ordained (past tense) to eternal life.


Massive Democrat Fraud
  
I read a survey that was conducted a few days after election day. The survey results stated that 70% of Republicans believed voter fraud occurred where only 10% of Democrats believed voter fraud occurred.
Democrat or Republican, I can assure you there was voter fraud. How much voter fraud occurred I cannot tell you, but let's not be naive. Voter fraud occurs in every election. With as many mail in ballets as were cast I believe it was on a massive scale, probably on both sides.


Can The Lost Get Saved
  
It is God that saves. Amen?
Acts 16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
Without God acting she would not have been saved.
Examples: The Apostle Paul,Acts 9:3
Peter: Luke 5:8 God opens Peter's eyes to his sinfulness.
Gadarene - Legion, Mark 5:6
Notice that none of the apostles ever said, I don't think I will follow Christ. When he said follow me, they followed.



Lost Respect For A Pastor
  
I was at a church meeting, you might call it a revival and had a similar experience. Later the man that was cutting jokes during the worship service was called on to preach. He preached an amazing sermon. We should never allow ourselves to forget preachers are men. They are not perfect.


Saved Before Born
  
The scriptures clearly state from the foundation of the world, meaning that the Lambs Book of Life was written from the beginning of the creation of man.
Rev 5:1 states that the book is sealed with seven seals and only Christ can open it so their names are secure.
Rev 13:8 states that Christ is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
So God people's names were written in the book before they were born and in the mind and purpose of God, Christ had died for them and paid the price, so their salvation was secure from the foundation of the world.
Sounds like eternal security of the saints.


Importance Of Free Will
  
I have free will to sin.
God is sovereign. God is God and I am man.
The scriptures tell me that God does his will and no man can say to him what doest Thou?
The scriptures also tell me that God works in me both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
The scriptures tell me that I love him BECAUSE he first love me.
The scriptures also tell me that God does not love everyone. There's a shock for some.
Romans 9:13.


Dormition Of Mary
  
The belief that Mary's body was resurrected is heresy. Truly it is idol worship. It is not Mary we are to worship. It is Christ!
Peter, on the mount of transfiguration, wanted to worship Moses, Elijah, and Christ. God corrected him!
Mark chapter 9.


Predestined For Hell
  
No where in scripture does it say that God predestines an individual to Hell.
Multiple scriptures state that God predestines individuals for heaven.
Those who go to hell deserve hell.
We would all go to hell if we were not predestined to salvation and heaven by God.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny, here are a few verses referencing water baptism:
Matt 3:7, Matt 21:25, 1 Peter 3:21, John 1:33

Here are some verses concerning baptism not performed by man: 1 Cor 12:13, Col 2:12


References both: Matt 3:11, Mark 1:8,


Force Us To Be Saved
  
ds, concerning fighting, and killing, etc.:
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like...
This is all due to sin.

Concerning God's choices:
Matt 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

He does what is best.


Christians With Depression
  
I want to thank all of you for responding. Cluny, I especially appreciate what you said. God bless you all.


Happy Thanksgiving To All
  
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I pray the Lord blesses all those who seek his face.


Living Through Tribulation
  
The greek word for tribulation is the word, "thlpsis" it means trouble but it also means pressure. When Christ spoke to his disciples and told them that in this world ye shall have tribulation. He was telling them they would have trouble and pressure. Is there any one of us who doesn't get stressed or feel the pressures of this life living in this sin filled world?


Armed Guards At Church
  
I know several pastors who now carry concealed. In speaking with one of them, he stated that he believe it was his duty to protect his flock.

Years ago a young man came into one of our churches and tried to rob the congregation at gun point. One of the members of the church was a young marine who had just returned from duty. He took the gun away from the would be robber and gave him the right hand of fellowship across his chops. The robber looked up from the floor and said to the congregation, "I though yous people were Christians?"


God Or Jesus Miracles
  
47 times the scriptures refer to Christ as the Son of God.
85 times in the new testament Christ is referred to as the Son of man.
If we truly understand John chapter 1, we understand that Christ is God. Also we can see this in examining 1 John 5:7 of the KJV.

For Jesus to be our mediator he has to be both God and man.
1 Timothy 2:5. states that Christ is both and that is the only way he could be the perfect and acceptable sacrifice.
