What Is A Good Work
There are many James.
But let's take for instance, Lumber Mill
Now the lumber that comes out of a mill can be used for alot of things, both good and evil. Are you supposed to work only on the logs that are being made into lumber for good?
Or, are we supposed to do our best in whatever we do for the glory of God, seeing we are His workmanship unto good works?
Take Joseph, I don't think He questioned what He was doing for Potipher was going to be used for good or ill, He just pleased his master.
And take medical professions, they don't know if they are fixing up a person that will kill someone someday, but they do their best.
On the other hand, we know certain jobs not to be pleasing to God. I'm sure everyone can think of a few.

Jesus Recieves Holy Spirit
We've answered these. You haven't accepted the answers.
and again, but you will not accept.
Why did God need to be baptized?
To fulfill the Law of Moses, so that the Lamb can be without spot or blemish. Mat 3:13-15
Why did God then need to be baptized in HolySpirit?
He wasn't, not in a NT sense, just as the prophet spoke by the HS but were not baptized. John 1:33
Why did Satan try to tempt God after his baptism?
Satan was looking for the Christ, The Son of God, the Spotless Lamb... he found Him.

Jesus Recieves Holy Spirit
1Cor 12:4-6 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
1Cor 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1Cor 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Pro 8:22-23 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
--I believe there was never in infinity where God was wordless, fatherless, wisdomless, or powerless, such is the Christ of God.

Did Eve Really Know God
God did not tell them not to touch.

The Theoretic Big Bang
Big bang says --condensed matter full of energy in an empty universe, bang, stars, sun, earth, moon.
Bible says--nothing, universe(heavens), earth, sun, moon, stars.
Seems like a big difference to me.

Are You Sure Of Your Salvation
What is the Father's will?
Jhn 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Performance Salvation
Miche3754 and MarkV
Are you two married? or like siblings?
You fight all the time, question each others salvation in Christ, pick on each other about the simplist statement, phrase, or word, come to a point of either calling names or implying an ungodly characteristic trait, and just not seeing the work of Christ in each other.
I suppose now you will agree to turn your attention to me and disregard the work of Christ in my life as well.
I do admire each of you for your passion and zeal for the Truth in God's Word. Let us not continue in worldly bonds, but the relationships that flow from the Father: edifying, encouraging, and receiving instruction from each other to the glory of God.

The Theoretic Big Bang
Leon, I am getting the impression that you believe:
1. matter is eternal.
2. God did not create it.
This would lead me to the conclusion that God is not omnipotent, that there are things in this universe that God has no control over, cannot create nor destroy, only play with.
But since I believe God to be all powerful, I beieve Him to have ultimate control and sovreignty over all of creation, not just to manipulate, but to create from nothing as well as eradicate completely, both matter and energy.
Since there was no light, thus God said, 'Let there be light' and it was so.
Gen 1:1 The creation of matter.
Gen 1:2 What the matter looked like if one could see it (darkness).
Gen 1:3 The creation of energy.

Did Judas Lose His Salvation
Then, christianity would just be another religion to you and you weren't saved to begin with. Buddhism, being a religion, not a relationship with the Creator, would not save you either.

Jesus Recieves Holy Spirit
It looks like the blog through many words in scripture shows that either:
David8318 is correct and we, from all realms of Christianity, are wrong about Jesus.
We are right about who Jesus is and David8318 is in error.
It makes one wonder who has the antichristian virus affecting their reasoning and interpretation of the Word of God.
Since there were only 2 votes supporting the Arian view that Jesus was not equal to God in essence, and over 248 votes for same essence and that those from all over christianity were there in 264AD, the reconstructed 1870AD view appears to be just as false.
David8318, you may now start with the neo-platonic hellenistic accusations at this time.

Did Judas Lose His Salvation
francis, as said on this blog over and over again, it's not the same.. We are sealed, He was not. We have the eternal Spirit as our guide, He did not.
Judas was never saved/lost his salvation based on several verses-17 nays
Judas was saved based on one verse- 1 yea
Do not judge- 1 maybe

Jesus Recieves Holy Spirit
John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ,
Galatians 1:8-9 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Jesus Recieves Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit did not indwell and be sealed until after the ascension as evident at pentecost.
The Holy Ghost fell upon Jesus as in O.T.
This was a confirmation of who He is.
He was before the beginning.
There was not a time when God was fatherless, wordless, or wisdomless as some people would like you to believe.
John 8:58b I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Mal 3:6a For I [am] the LORD, I change not,
John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Why Was Paul Needed
Thank you Donna66, but, according to the gospel of 1stcliff, there is no such thing as man's spirit, just his breath, so I was wondering how the physically dead coul bury their dead, since 1st cliff doesn't believe in spiritually dead.

Six 24 Hour Creation Days
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

What Is A Good Work
Yeah, like Arch St. and Lycoming St.

What Is A Good Work
Heb 13:18 Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.
2Tim 2:21-22 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart
Jam 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth [it] not, to him it is sin.
Phi 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, ...honest, ...just, ...pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report, if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

Did Judas Lose His Salvation
Nowhere in your text does it inplicate judas as the one who must betray jesus. It surely did not have to be judas.-FRANCIS on 4/25/10
John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
John 6:70-71 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot [the son] of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
Acts 1:25-26 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. And they gave forth their lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

What Is Authentic Faith
Show me promises in the Law of Moses and I will see faith.
Hbr 3:17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? [was it] not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
Show me mercy in the Law of Moses instead of sentence and punishment.
Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Show me whether or not one who trespasses gets what they deserve and I will see justice and true judgment.
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground, for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return.
