David:

Assuming that all the prominent characters in the Bible had exactly the same theological perspective as you do is the height or presumption, especially when you include Jesus in the list.

What kathr is asking for is what church *today* teaches exactly what you have been saying here.


Do Unsaved Live Forever
  
Trav:

Note that none of that has happened yet. All of those are prophecies of the Millennium:

Ezekiel 37:13: God has not yet opened their graves and brought them out of them.

:22 God has not yet made them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel, no longer two kingdoms, under one king.

:28 Gentiles do not "know that God sanctifies Israel". God's sanctuary is not "in the midst of them for evermore" (the old temple was destroyed, so not "evermore", and a new one has not been built yet.)

Trav:

You keep using the term "Israel's scripture", but you have yet to define what you actually mean by that. It's not a term in common use. You could have just used the word "scripture", but you chose to use something else, which suggests that you mean something different. What, exactly, do you mean?

David:

1) The letters of John were written to the Church - i.e. to already saved individuals

2) John specifically wrote that if we sin, Jesus forgives us (admitting the possibility that it is possibility to sin, even after being saved)

3) He further went on to say that if we claim that we have NOT sinned, the truth is not in us.

The apparent contradiction between Jesus and John is not actually a contradiction. Before we are saved, we are SLAVES to sin. After we are saved, we are no longer slaves to sin. Yes, we are capable of sinning (occasionally), but sin no longer dominates our lives.

David:

How was I not truthful? Be specific. I don't know her heart, and neither do you. Neither you nor I are qualified to be her judge. Only God is. Jesus commanded us to Judge Not.

Yes. I repeatedly refer to 1 John 1:9-10, including in my last message - and note that this was written to people WHO WERE ALREADY BELIEVERS.

Some people insist that once we are saved we are incapable of sin, but if that were true, there would have been no need for John to have written what he did above, since it would never come up. In fact, John's statement "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us" speaks for itself.


Jews Under The Old Covenant
  
Trav:

1. You said "There were no prophets outside of Israel".
2. I said you were wrong, that Balaam was a prophet, but was not of Israel.
Numbers 23:16 "And the Lord met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth..." When God put words in your mouth, that makes you a prophet of God. He was a corrupt prophet who took money to prophesy, which is why he is a biblical villain, still a prophet.
3. Despite CLEAR and obvious scripture, you keep insisting I am wrong, and changed your claim to "Israels prophets never fail?".
4. That wasn't what I was challenging. YOU'RE the one changing the subject. YOU'RE the one moving the target. YOU'RE the one claiming you won, even when proven wrong.

David:

Do you believe Kathrine is saved?

That is a question I can't answer - and neither can you. Only God knows. Jesus said "Judge not", because we think we know answers, but are often wrong. Demanding one-word answers is a trap. Jesus refused such questions from Pharisees. Like the classic "Have you stopped beating your wife?" Every one-word answer is wrong.

Jon wrote that if we admit our sin, he is quick to forgive us - AND THIS WAS WRITTEN TO BELIEVERS. There would be no need to say that if believers could never sin. Also, "If we say we have not sinned, we deceive ourselves".

If YOU believe that YOU never sin, are you saved, or do you (as John wrote) deceive yourself?


Jews Under The Old Covenant
  
Trav:

You keep moving the target. You didn't say "no prophets authorized by God". You said "no prophets". Period. I point out scripture that DIRECTLY CONTRADICTS YOUR STATEMENT, and still you insist you're right. Unbelievable. I show ACTUAL SCRIPTURE that refutes you, but your mind is so closed you think I'm parroting kat.

I was NEVER a JW. I grew up Catholic, quit at age 10 because priest could not or would not answer important questions. As an adult, I had a JW friend. Hung out with them for a year, but realized they were just as confused and hypocritical as everyone else they accused. STOP constantly judging people for things you know nothing about - as JESUS commanded.

Trav:

It's just as much gaslighting to try to sow confusion to cause someone to question their salvation as to question their sanity, so the term is not inappropriate.

You keep repeating like a broken record the phrase "Israel's scripture". That scripture is not one that the Bible uses anywhere, and I've never heard anyone else ever use it but you. What exactly do you mean by that phrase? Do you mean the old testament, or the new, or both, or something else? Please educate us, and please be specific.

David:

You wrote: Its there, but since you havent experienced Pauls testimony in (Romans 7: 7-25), you dont see it.

How does one "experience" testimony?

The problem is, you say you believe in Jesus, yet you dont believe what he taught.

What, exactly did Jesus teach, that I don't believe? Be specific. In particular, which "doctrines" of mine contradict John 8:34-35?

David:

EVERYONE'S experience is subjective, because they personally experience it, and in many cases, there is no way to objectively verify that experience. In Paul's case, his Damascus Road experience was independently corroborated by God's vision to Ananias (Acts 9).

As far as Romans 7 goes, what does that have to do with this discussion? He was teaching law. He was not describing his personal experiences.

If your experience doesnt match his, you are on the wrong path.

"By grace we are saved through faith". Nowhere does the bible say we are saved through experience, nor does it instruct us what kind of experience we need.

Trav:

1) You said, point blank, that there were no prophets outside of Israel
2) I pointed out, from scripture, where there WAS one.
(You mentioned nothing about prophets failing.)

How is this "smoke"? Do you think the Word of God is "smoke", just because it flat out contradicts you?

No, I am not kathr's pastor. Other than our comments on these blogs, I have no idea who she is in real life, as I have mentioned several times before. Why do you keep harping on this non-fact that I have refuted multiple times? Why are you so obsessed with some sort of non-existent relationship between me and kathr? Do you really find it inconceivable that two people in this world could simultaneously disagree with you?

You wrote: Israels truth cannot abide your lack of truth.

They must because their doctrines fall flat when...

Your sinking defense of the indefensible by witnesses make it clear.... your over the top defense hi lights your passionate offense to specific Sheep scripture.

Why are you SO antagonistic in EVERY SINGLE POST you make?

Something is wrong when scripture makes any self proclaimed gifted teacher preacher infuriated.

Yes, something is DEFINITELY wrong - when people keep spewing random scriptures that aren't on point, while constantly engaging in personal attacks. This is NOT Christ-like behavior. What makes YOU so angry?

My point is, subjective experience is no guarantee of correctness. Mormons belive the Book of Mormon is the Word of God, and teach their followers to pray to God to ask if it is - and most feel they get a positive response - yet they are all mistaken.

Many claim to be born again and have a conviction of sin - but rather than God convicting them of the essence of sin, they have a laundry list of "don't do this, don't do that" - Pharisaical legalism. Pharisees had different ideas of what "sin" was than Jesus. They choked on trivial details. They condemned thieves and prostitutes - yet Jesus freely ate with such, and his biggest problems were with religious hypocrites, Pharisees "holier than thou" attitude.

Trav:

You wrote: vehemence against Israels scripture?

I don't see vehemence in kathr's posts. I do see it in your all the time.

Why doesn't your pastor just post himself?

Are you willing to subject yourself to this same criterion? Why don't you get YOUR pastor to post himself? If not, don't expect it of others. You make snap accusations against her pastor without knowing a single thing about him, because it feels good to be judgmental. Please stop.

Never was a Prophet that wasn't Of Israel.

You must have forgotten about Balaam - a genuine prophet, not of Israel. He was chastised, not because he prophesied incorrectly, but because he prophesied against Israel.

David:

How does one know "for sure" if one has received God's Holy Spirit? Having an inner feeling isn't enough. Many people sincerely believe they received God's Holy Spirit, but by their words and deeds, they plainly have not. Many so-called prophets claim to prophesy (a gift of the Spirit) prophesy things that don't happen, or that contradict other prophets. This proves their belief is delusional.

There have been Christians on this planet for almost 2000 years, but also so much death and suffering inflicted during that time (e.g. slavery, the Inquisition, etc.) shows many people who thought they were following Christ weren't really.

David:

God can use guilt to convict us of sin, but guilt is an emotion that can be invoked in other ways. Sometimes people feel guilt for things because of cultural indoctrination, peer pressure, or other things - and those things are not from God. One needs to be able to discern where the guilt comes from.

Trav:

What truth?

This blog is about Masons. Yet on 6/5/21, having never said a single thing on this blog before, you jump in, and switch the topic to accusing kathr. You have still not said a single word relating to this topic. I am not "accusing you". I am stating a plainly observable fact, that anyone can verify by just reading the transcript of this blog.

WHY are you attacking kathr here? Wouldn't it be more appropriate to at least direct such comments in the blog where she may have said something you disagree with? This is why this site has multiple blogs, so people can discuss different topics, rather than having turf wars drowning out every other conversation on the site.

Trav:

You wrote: I'm your man sister.

What does that even mean?

You keep mentioning "Israel's scripture". What is that, exactly? I don't recall that term ever being used in either old or new testaments. It sounds like it's something you just made up.

Logical in that you claim no foundation in scripture

WHAT?! I actually quote scriptures to prove my points. How can you claim these have no foundation?

You constantly quote scriptures that are not related to the subject at hand, but are references that are vague and not on point - like Heb 13:20. How does that apply directly to anything being discussed. Nobody disputes that God raised Jesus from the dead.

Masons are required to believe in a being called "The Great Architect of the Universe". This may or may not correspond to the God of the Bible, and that may vary from one Mason to another.

Trav:

Yet again, you comment for the first time on a new blog adding zero to the actual subject, but use it as excuse to deflect to personally attack someone else. Will you never stop Accusing? You know who the bible calls The Accuser.
