Faith Without Works Dead
"I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:"
rev 6:9

Do you think slain here is used only in a literal sense, or could it be figurative?

Faith Without Works Dead
from works of law blog
verses given previously a response to rm2:13

where there is no law, there is no transgression. Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may rest on grace and may be guaranteed to all Abrahams offspringnot only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.rm 4:15,16

For sin was in the world before the Law was given, but sin is not taken into account when there is no law.Rm 5:13

"So how did Adam and Eve 'sin'?"

Although sin is not taken into account, it does NOT say faith,(or lack of) is not taken into account. Considering the state Adam and Eve were in, different from mankind after sin entered world

Works Of The Law
"They cant, and that is why I asked the question". Are you saying Gal 2:16 isn't true?
When scripture seems contradictory, I think my understanding needs developing,God is true, resolves.

"Who has first given to God, that God should repay him? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever!""rm 11:35,36 "Therefore I urge you, brothers, on account of Gods mercy,offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual service of worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God."rm 12:1-2

Works Of The Law
"(Romans 2:13) For it is not the hearers of the law who are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified."

---David on 9/26/19

However, Gal 2:16, "a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."
How can both be true? The only way I know of is that if the doers referenced rm 2:13 do works as a result of the Lord's work within.

Turn Against Evil Doers
True, Paul did not use physical force, and neither did Jesus. At times He (Jesus), used strong words, mostly directed at religious leaders.

Constitution may give rights but there is still choice whether to own and/or use guns.
I've wondered how effective owning guns may be if locked away when 'needed' in a moments time, but think locking them away can be critical, aware of children having been injured or killed because of access.

Yes, Paul stood, and his defense was the LORD, and even when attacked he continued to praise, preach, give forth testimony, more...resulting in things like a jailers conversion. Some were further incensed. God saw him through, even until his time

Turn Against Evil Doers
This is in the bible concerning turning the other cheek:

"You have heard that it was said, Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. But I tell you not to resist an evil person. If someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also, if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well,"

Mt 4:38-40

Loved Ones Are In Hell

"What exactly DOES "worm" mean in this verse?"

I don't know what 'experts' say, but I had thought it to refer to something like a maggot which feeds off of what is decaying. So that while one exists, there is a food source. The 'worm', whether thoughts or something else would continue to 'plague' that one for their entire existence.

A side note: Historically and even to this day, maggots have been used to eat away infection, in some instances ridding one of that infection.

Loved Ones Are In Hell
"Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."

Note that it is their worm that shall not die, and their fire that shall not be quenched, so what happens when they (persons)are destroyed in the lake of fire?

Explain Matthew 6:1-2

Baptism Spiritual Effects

"God's laws never change"

So your interpretation of heb 7:12 "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law."

Trump Protect Religious Freedom

Jesus did tell of persecution.

However, Jn 15, 16, 17 all, God chooses, out of the world, [still in it not of it]. Promises Comforter, peace, eternal life, joy, being one, kept, kept from the evil, love in them from Father....

protections promised not physical, carnal.
Perhaps not protection in the sense many may consider, and not a pre-trib rapture, but promises nonetheless.

Trump Protect Religious Freedom
I think I'll trust the Lord to protect His church, as He promised.

Jesus With Taxes
"my kingdom is not of this world" is an important distinction.

As for Lk 23,

" the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar" is an accusation, brought by Jesus' accusers. Do we agree with his accusers? I'm not aware of scriptural witness that confirms this accusation.
The remainder of their accusations,
"saying that he himself is Christ a King." ,
brings up the subject of Christ as king, and therefore an understanding of what Jesus meant and means by 'kingdom'.

What Is Love

" "Love your neighbor as yourself"? - because in that we'll be bringing unto them the same blessings that HE has imparted "

Good point

The 'as' in the phrase you quoted brings to mind an equality, at least in how we consider and treat others...

"For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of (yourself) more highly than you ought, but think of yourself with sober judgment, according to the measure of faith God has given you." rm 12:3

He Is A Devout Catholic
Monk Brendan,

I don't know why many believe Catholics are unbelievers. Sincere Catholics profess belief in Jesus Christ. I've known Catholics that differ one from another in their beliefs as is true concerning many denominations.It's not my place to judge the heart of another,it is God that knows the heart.

"DON'T make the mistake that I am less Christian than you!!!"

Yes,"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others." KJV Philippians 2:3-4. Worth reading the next verses too, having the same mind(set) as Christ

What Is Purgatory

"Not ONLY did God block the Original Sin HE infused so MUCH GRACE that Mary NEVER SINNED."

Then how do you explain "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" rm 3:23

"Surely there is no righteous man on earth who does good and never sins." Ec 7:20

"And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." Mk 10:18
