This is for the "elect" in WEST Michigan:

Matt 7:21
21 "Not everyone who says to me,'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

When the native Protestants ask me if I'm "saved" and/or born-again, I reply:

“I am redeemed, and like the apostle Paul, I am working out my salvation in fear and trembling”(Phil 2:12)—“with a firm hope but not with a FALSE assurance, and I do all this as the Church has taught, unchanged, from the time of Christ.”

If you do not mind, would you please explain to us how you work out your own salvation?

How very sad for you Abraham! First, that you feel compelled to bitterly accost those you disagree with and secondly that you have no assurance of your salvation.

No I am not a "christian" I have seen many who claim to be, but do not live up to their belief, but we all know no matter what terrible crime you may have committed or "sin"( which I don't believe exists except in the human mind) as long as you confess your sin your saved. And then I ask (saved from what?) Hell? I am no atheist but you christians don't own the franchise on god.

I'm really jealous that you have an assurance. Can I obtain that with the "magic words" aka born-again prayer? If you have an assurance then why not do whatever you feel like doing and have the fun while the gettings good?

I TRY not to judge others and try not to judge my own salvation.

And yet you hypocritically bash CRC people in other threads. Your "tolerance" and "respect" for "diversity" is to be admired. I mean you are not like the many other bitter gays on here who trash everyone that happens to disagree with them. What a great person you are.

I wish I lived on a street with a CRC, Catholic, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Gay, and Atheist and instead of judging each other like the WEST Michigan way, everyone could live together in harmony and learn from everyone.

You just don't get that in a place like WEST Michigan.

I met an old Chinese fellow once who told me this: "all rivers flow eventually into the same ocean".

Let those who believe in something continue to have their faith no matter what they believe. In the end, it will be one.....just as it started.

Have a Merry Christmas or Saturnalia, whichever you prefer.
