Many Paths To Jesus
the bible is not politically correct. there is only one way to heaven. Matthew 7:13-14.That verse sums it up but I'll give another verse. ephesians 4:5 One lord,one faith, one baptism
One way to heaven.

Is Jesus God Or A Son
Jesus says that he is the good shepherd.And that his sheep knows his voice. He explaines that in st. John 10.
Please read the whole chapter so that you can fully understand that Jesus is God and the Holy spirit comes from Jesus.
St. John 10:30 I and the Father are One.

He didn't say 3, trinity or treiseis. In the chapter Jesus said the sheep knows the shephard voice, and they wont follow another. Many of you do not belong to the shepard that is Jesus.

Receive Power From On High
jesus said wait in jerusalem for the power from on high, and in acts 2 they received it and spoke in tongues.
and in Acts 10:45 they received the holy spirit. Peter knew because they spoke in tongues. And in Acts 19:1-6 paul comanded diciples of john to be baptized in Jesus name and they spoke in tongues. I don't want to hear want you believe, I don't care. Back it up with bible verses. I have all bible for everyone.

Doctrines To Be Saved
You must be born of the water and the spirt before you can enetr heaven st john 3:5
Acts 10:45 , and Act 19:1-6 will tell you that you need to be baptized of water in the name of Jesus, and recieve the holy spirit. Jesus said it, Paul and Peter repeated what Jesus said. there is no way around it. Go get baptized and recieve the holy spirt.

Is Jesus God Or A Son
Trinity is not in the bible, but many of you are trying hard to put it in.
Jesus is God in the flesh.
read Colossians 1:15-
And also read Rev22:18 for those of you that try to add trinity in to the bible.
You must understand that Jesus, God and the Holy sprirt are one and the same. Gods name is Jesus and Jesus sent down his spirit.
In Rev 22:13 Jesus said He is Alpha and omega, the first and the last, beginning and the end. He's saying he God.

How To Receive Christ
ACTS 19:1-6 There he found some disciples 2and asked them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when[a] you believed?"
They answered, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit."
3So Paul asked, "Then what baptism did you receive?"
"John's baptism," they replied.

4Paul said, "John's baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus." 5On hearing this, they were baptized into[b] the name of the Lord Jesus. 6When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues[c] and prophesied. 7There were about twelve men in all.

How To Speak In Tongues
Speaking in tongues is very real. And you cant teach anything to anyone that God send down from heaven.
You need to ask God to send it to you.
you will not recieve it if your faith is weak. God knows our hearts he knows what we are thinking all the time. we can not fool him.
show God that you want the holy spirit, dont give up so easy. be presisant. this is his holy spirit that were talking about. the creator's spirit, the same spirit that created the universe. Its HOLY....

Two Types Of Tongues
people don't want to understand that they are different. They don't want to believe that speaking in tongues is a sign that you have been baptised in the spirit. They want to believe that they can raise there hand and say that I accept god in my heart then they are saved. St.john 3 clearly says that you can not do that. Nicodemus said to jesus, that he believed that he was sent from heaven. Jesus replied, you must be born of the water and the spirit to enter heaven.

Mark, in Act 2:14 Peter stands up with the eleven apostles and addressed the crowed. meaning they are all on one accord and they all agree on what is about to be said.

Act2:33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.

The Holy Spirit has been poured out what you now see and hear.

Mark, you hear people speak in tongues... you see people speak in tongues.

And Paul shows you how to be saved in Acts 19:1-6,

Mark, was the church of corinth saved or lost?

Michie, He is right, all do not speak in tongues, but the first sign of receiving the holy spirit is speaking in tongues.

michie, they are two different things........... one is a gift, the other you receive as proof that you have received the holy spirit.

We are in the same covenant as the Apostles, which is Grace.

So we received the holy spirit the same way... Act 19:1-6 Paul tells you how to be saved.

Acts 2:38 Peter stands up and tell the people how to be saved.

Michie, Corinthians they have been saved.. they have already spoken in tongues. Paul is correcting them on how to behave in front of nonbelievers. The first sign that the book is for the sanctified is 1 Corinthian1:2 to those sanctified in Christ...hint.... hint.

The book was not meant for those that haven't fully obeyed the command to be saved.He writes to those that are saved, not the lost people. Thats why is hard for people to understand.

Romans3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Jesus was the only one that was perfect(with out sin).

So, if you have sined your sins need to be washed away. And all need to repent for all sins no matter how small.

ST.John 3:5 except a man be born of the water and the spirit he can not enter heaven.

There is no way around this, that is a command from God.

From the book of Romans to Jude, they are meant for the water baptized in Jesus name filled with the holy ghost saints of God.

Now people are confused , because they think the books are speaking to them. they are not.

1 Corinthians 1:2 those that are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy,etc.

Michie , you are mis interpeting the scriptures.

If you noticed, the corinthians was a church.

And if you really pay attention everyone spoke in tongues.

The writer is correcting the saints on how to behave in front of non-believers.

He says in 1 corinthian14:18 he thanks God that he speaks in tongues more than all of you.

And if you jump over to acts 19:1-6 he shows you the steps on how to be saved.

The Apostles are in the covnant of Grace, And so are we. That means nothing has changed.

We receive the holy ghost the same as they did. Acts 2:1-4 Act 2:33, Acts 2:38, Acts10:45-,

The only thing that is truth is from the bible, yet no one has shown a scripture that is in context. I see a lot of people patting themselves on thier backs for telling stories of saints that have made mistakes in the past.
Everyone makes mistakes and sins. Thats why we must repent daily.
But even though we make mistakes God is God all by himself with out us.

Can't Speak In Tongues
But its my fault for trying to correct you, and giving you the truth.
Proverbs 9: 7 "Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult,
whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse.
8 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you,
rebuke a wise man and he will love you.
9 Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still,
teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning

Anne, I asked for scriptures, you didn't come up with any that are in context.

You think we can do anything we want that makes us happy and feel about our selves, And you call that being saved.

We don't make the rules up, they are already commanded in the bible and tell us what to do.

you think just by accepting God in your heart you have the holy spirit and saved, accepting God is the FIRST step.

Nicodemus did acknowledged that Jesus was sent by God, Jesus told him that he needed to be born of the water and the spirit.

So #1 those that accept God into there heart, need to be born of the water and the spirit like Jesus to Nicodemus. St.John 3:1-

markv john told his disciples and everyone else to believe on the one coming after him.
But they were also rebaptised in Jesus name. And they spoke in tongues like everyone else that received the holy ghost in the covenant of Grace. And we are in the same covenant, so we received the holy ghost like the one before us the Apostles.
This, right here is our example to follow. this is how we are saved... they were baptised in Jesus name and they received they holy ghost.

Harry Potter Movies Sinful
if you want to get techincal, sesame street has characters in it that do not exsit. And yes some of them do magic.

Harry Potter is ok to watch.
Yes the bible says not to perform or get caught up in magic, but there are movies and tv shows about murder, like CSI. No one is complaining about that.
I dont think this subject is warranted.
Its about a whole lot of adults that arent acting like adults.

Can't Speak In Tongues
Anne how does one receive the holy spirit ?

How did the Apostles recieved the Holy spirit?

After Nicodemus confess the Jesus was sent from God What did jesus tell him In St. John 3?
And why did paul question disciples of John about the holy spirit in Acts19?

please answer with bible verses that are in context.

Only Way To Baptize
From the book Romans to Jude , they were written to those sanctified in Christ. They are ALREADY water baptized in Jesus name and have spoken in tongues.

If you read the entire books you could see that.

There was a question asked Acts 2:37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"

38Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far offfor all whom the Lord our God will call."
