Only John 3:16 Salvation
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son....

For this my son was dead, and is alive again, he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

This "dead" son reasoned within himself that he had made a mistake in leaving his father and returned to him throwing himself at his mercy.

Obviously the word DEAD here does not mean physically or spiritually COMPLETELY dead. You dont need a dictionary to see that.

Explain John 12:32
You guys are looking for eternal security in Christ in the wrong area. It should be based on Gods promise for those who exercise faith in Jesus Christ and not in an elitist election that you have no part of.

God desires ALL men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Not just a select few. If a man resists that calling he has only himself to blame.

It is YOUR faith that is required. That is why the word says we will not be ashamed if we place that faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 9:33 & 10:11)

Your faith in Him allows him to save you by HIS faith which was shown by His obedience unto death.

Only John 3:16 Salvation
Dead doesnt always mean completely dead.

It can mean "reckoned as dead" as in Luke 15:24.

The son in that parable came to his senses and realized he made an error in sinning against his Father and went back to him. His Father saw him coming and ran to him to embrace him.

Jesus told this parable for a reason. This is exactly how our relationship is with God now. We must repent (come to our senses) about what we have been doing and return to our Father. This is only thru Jesus Christ. And like the father in this parable, God will meet us halfway

How We Get Saved
To believe in Jesus Christ means much more than mere belief, for the demons believe in Jesus and they tremble, but certainly are not saved. Believe means to fully comprehend what Christ accomplished on the cross at Calvary. His work was finished and there's nothing more man can do to add to his salvation.

This is what the apostles meant when they said: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou SHALL be saved. They didn't maybe, or perhaps, thou shall be saved. Its a done deal.

Explain Parable Of The Pearl
The parables interpret themselves. These parables concern the visible kingdom, not church. Parable: 1, subjects of this kingdom. 2, how they came to be. 3 the abberant growth. 4, pervasion of false doctrines within. 5, origin and scattering of the first kingdom subjects among men...Abraham's seed in Egypt unto A.D.70. 6, to the spread of this kingdom among gentiles unto the time of Christ's 2nd coming. (This is called Christendom.) And then this kingdom reaches its final stage with 7,the purification of those false subjects. It is great error to interpret the sower, the man, or the merchant as being anyone other than Christ. It is also inconsistent to interpret the parables in such a way as to make the kingdom and the church synonymous.

Husband Left Three Weeks Ago
I am amazed by the lack of mercy written into some of these blogs. The poor woman is probably in a lot of pain. The best we can do is pray over the situation and ask for the Lord to bring the help of His Holy Spirit and those He can minister through to her. I have had people walk out on me and I know it's not fun.

Joel Osteen Has Largest Church
Prov7:2Keep my commandments, and live,
5That they may keep thee from the strange woman(church), from the stranger which flattereth with her words. (not The Word of God)
10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, (lives for worldly things)
14I have peace offerings with me, this day have I payed my vows. (said my words)
16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. (worldly no righteousness)
19For the goodman is not at home,(Jesus)he is gone a long journey:
26For she (harlot church) hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Who is James Robison?
James Robison knows the Light of the gospel. Years ago a Godly Man cast demons out of James. James was taught by the Holy Spirit the true Gospel. I just wish he would give up this world and teach the Gospel that was shown to him. If he were to speak the truth that I know he has been taught. I believe he would be hated. James, let your light shine. God Bless

Does Suffering Please God
Rom8:32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? God freely gives.35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, sword? Rom8:36-37 2Cor4:8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed, perplexed, but not in despair, 9Persecuted, but not forsaken, cast down, but not destroyed,
10Always bearing in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. You do not think this pleases God?

Is It Possible To Not Sin
Yes we can!!!
Duet30:14But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. In Deut God said we can do it. Jesus was our example. We must put to death the deeds of the flesh. Anger, resentment, pride ,lust, greed. 1 Pet4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin, Do you not know that we must die to be married to Christ. If you havent died to your flesh and youve entered into covenant with him, he calls you an adulterer. If you continue to practice sin, you are of the devil.

What Was Adam And Eve's Sin
There is no parable. The fruit are words. Eve was tested with lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the boastful pride of life. Satan deceived her into eating his words that it was good for food,(lust of the flesh) and that it was pleasant to the eyes(lust of the eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise ( the boastful pride of life) .
After she ate, Eve was producing this fruit and gave the fruit to Adam . Jesus was tested with the same fruit, lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the boastful pride of life. Thank God he passed. We are tested everyday to get our heart to eat this fruit. Nothing has changed.

Parable Of the Talents
Nana, Sheep are Christians, Goats are the foolish (cursed). Foolish are ones who read and analyze but do not act upon the Word Of God (receive not the spirit of truth, oil). King Jesus. Nations are people. He separates blessed from cursed. The kingdom is peace, joy in the holy ghost. Hungered for meat, and thirsty for the Spiritual Word, stranger - not in covenant with Christ. Showed the covenant to him. Naked-Did not have Jesus for a covering. Clothed him with righteousness . Sick- Jesus Healed him. Prison -Satan had him bound Jesus set him free.
Brethren are spirit filled. Christ in them. You see you have done it unto Jesus.
The cursed do not have Jesus abiding in them. They are foolish virgins!

Parable Of the Talents
The Talent is the spiritual understanding of the Word of God. He gives one person 5 Talents another 2 and another 1. The one with more understanding shared the word with others and by doing so received more understanding. Likewise with the one that received 2. The person with 1 who hid the Word in the earth (heart) and never gave it out not even to the exchangers (a change of his own heart)received no more understanding and the little understanding he had was taken out of his heart. Now the Light of the Gospel was taken from him and he was cast into darkness.

Can A Virgin Marry A Non-Virgin
Yes you can but you'd better be okay with it. I married my wife (I was a virgin she not) and could never get over it. Later she used it in arguments to belittle me now we are divorced. For men if its important to you DON'T. Sorry ladies but you need to take this far more seriously than you do. It hurts men and it isn't a joke. Don't marry her if it matters to you. Don't do it.

Pray For Chad To Marry Me
I will pray for God's will. I do not know you or Chad and do not know the circumstances. Sounds like you want Chad to marry you and will not take no for an answer.
Perhaps God is trying to tell you something you do not want to hear? If God says no you should trust him to know what is best for you. One must pray for his will not that he makes someone specific love you. God knows what is best leave the choice to him.

Can A Virgin Marry A Non-Virgin
I just want to say that the girl not being a virgin can cause huge arguments in the future and cause jealousy etc. my girlfriend is not one and I want to marry her now and I am a virgin. The arguments have been so bad that we have been on the brink of breaking up many times now.

My Husband Will Not Stop Affairs
speaking from a guy perspective. Dump him! You do not need this pain and stress in your life. He has some real problems and NEEDS to get right with God. You can not change him by staying with him. If he does not repent than he is not sorry which says he does not want to change.
Ask God to show you what to do. You deserve love in your life not this guy hurting you over and over. Let him go and have a real chance at love. God sees and knows your pain turn it over to him and let him give you a new life

Catholics Saints For Salvation
Jesus is THE ONLY mediator between God and man. Today we know it is possible to plant a fertilized human egg in a woman and she can birth the child. Christ was placed in Mary, sinless, she carried Him. She was a virgin, so mankind would know Jesus was born of God. We humans try to limit God. The Bible clearly teaches God is ALL powerful, ALL knowing, All present. Matthew 22:29: "Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God".

What Do I Do With My Fiance
As a guy I would have to say, BEWARE! He is not over her if he turns to her when you argue. why did he call her over? Did he want bed partner to feel sorry for him? I think you have got a glimpse of the future and better go with instinct. He sounds rather imature to deal with your argument this way.
