The dust of your judgement is not on me.
The dust of your own judgements of having rejected things that Jesus taught will follow you into the next life.
I prove I accept all that Jesus taught.
You have proven you don't, that you find acception to what he taught that you will and won't consider. You have done that by admittance and you will be judged for doing it.

Faith don't get you to Heaven. Works don't get you to Heaven.

The Christian's faith ceased upon salvation and it moved into a state of knowing by evidence. The Holy Ghost is real and known; it is not faith to the believer indwelt by the Holy Ghost.

Christians claim no works; they know it is Jesus' righteousness working and not theirs.

The faith (wishing and hoping) and works (earning a reward in Heaven) and faith plus works are hoping their faith is sincere enough.

The reason there is an obvious devoid of understanding of scripture meaning here is the absence of the Holy Ghost to tell you what the scriptures mean.

No; you faith won't get you to Heaven, nor your works.......... The Elect are God's own, a royal priesthood, heirs and joint heirs with Jesus given as a gift.

Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? 31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Nuggin is for Gays. Do you have what it takes to help him in this debate or do you want to side with the hillbillies? Can you hold your own?

Amen!
Now read James 2:14-26.

Antiquated pedophilia laws need to be scrapped. 12 year olds are far more mature today than they were 100 years ago. Time to get into thte 21st century.

It's extremely clear. There's nothing ambiguous about it.
Romans 1
" 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
What's equally clear is that those who want to add any works to the gospel of faith in Jesus are the works-salvation legalists that Apostle Paul contended against.
Ephesians 2
8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast"
Take your baptismal regeneration doctrine and either
1. throw it into the bottomless pit, or;
2. give it back to Rome.
And no church can save. Only Jesus can save. That includes the Church of Christ.
Thank you for a good post.

lol...WRONG!Having faith in Jesus WON'T always produce the works. Many are like the man that Jesus spoke of that lived day to day except when he wanted to SHOW his faith so he prayed loud in public and then went on his way like the other men, ignoring the poor and hungry and injured and widows and not helping any of them.
Many claim faith in Jesus and read their Bible and or even attend church and that's it. They don't volunteer to feed the hungry, visit the sick in hospitals or elderly in homes, don't work in soup kitchens and rarely if ever give any $ or food and supplies for good causes.
You have to earn your faith through constant development of it just as you earn your works by constantly doing good works for others.
Yes, exactly.

Matthew 25:31-46 and all the stern warnings of lukewarmness in Revelation.

Matthew 7:21
A Tree and its Fruit

…20"So then, you will know them by their fruits.

21"Not everyone who says to Me,'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

22"Many will say to Me on that day,'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'"

Jesus was a big rump ranger. He was faggin it up with the Apostle John. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother,“Woman, behold, your son!

Also, in the secret Gospel of Mark Jesus molested a boy.

I hate to break it to your Christers but you Jesus was gaylord and a pedophile and the Bible proves it. You precious Jesus was really Lucifer. Deal with it you sheeple lemmings!
