Good morning Q.
It went about as expected at my Doctor's appointment yesterday. I kind of knew what he was going to say so it came as no surprise. I'm having the minor surgery to implant the defibrillator in my chest on January the 7th.
From all I've read and from all they've told me it's a very minor surgery that takes about 2-3 hours. I'll go in to the Hospital very early on the 7th, have the surgery, spend the night in the Hospital, and if all goes according to plan I'll be released the next day. The recovery time is only a couple of weeks.
It's the best thing I can do to make sure that I'm safeguarding myself to against some of the problems a person can have with a heart that's in the condition mine is.
Brother, I will be praying for you and that all will go well.

Please try and understand what a FREE gift is.....
Where does Jesus say "Do nothing, just believe what the Roman Church says and I will let you into heaven."

In fact, where does Jesus (not Paul) say anything about forgiveness being by grace ?

WHy love anyone like He taught if it means nothing. And even why does one have to "believe" if it is "free" by grace ? That isn't free nor grace. It is a condition just like works.

Qu...I believe that it is just as important for me to understand what I don't believe as it is for those to understand what they believe. It is also a guidance into my own beliefs...some that I carried over from Christianity
Hey Annie, I hear you... it can also go a variety of ways like we see manifested by the thousands of denominations within Christianity. For my own part, I summarized by agreeing with Apostle Paul on the matter versus the Old Calvinist denominational once saved, always saved doctrine which hurdled it's way throughout the centuries into peoples' psyche.
AnnieJ wrote:
<quoted text>Thanks for the article. I have done very little research in Gnosticism and even less into Calvinism. What little that I have read on both it was enough for me to see the mixture of beliefs and the separation of beliefs between the two.
Yes... trying to understand gnosticism can leave one frustrated let alone Calvinism. But it does make sense that it is an offshoot of early gnosticism...
AnnieJ wrote:
<quoted text>After reading this article...it is obvious that mixture also includes Protestantism. I liken it to a family...some shared beliefs...some not shared...and a little dysfuntion thrown in.
I think that dysfunction is what many non-Christian see. Each claiming to have truth...each claiming to have that proof...and ALL saying that their truth is biblical and given to them by the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately there are times that "truth" does not agree. Who is right...they each think they are...who is wrong...it is always the other guy.
Yes, it's that way but it shouldn't be that way.
AnnieJ wrote:
<quoted text>My quest is to understand...not to determine who is right or wrong. In that process I hope to have a better understanding of my own beliefs...not those that were handed down to me as a child or that I heard in church for so many years.
I know that I annoy some by asking the questions that I do of them. Chances are most often...they are questions that I have asked myself...that I have either researched or in the process of.
Right, like it's best IMHO to learn and understand the origin or the original purpose of a thing. Then it is easier to see how it later morphed into something else.
AnnieJ wrote:
<quoted text>As far as the "once saved always saved" doctrine...I certainly understand because of some scripture why some believe it to be true. I also believe that it is mis-used and give some an excuse to not "work" on their faith or to do as they please...simply because they feel as if they still share in the "reward".
I hear you... Even the word "Disciple" has its root in the word "discipline".

That was a brilliant post.

Jesus never spoke of forgiveness by grace.

There are many things, which Jesus did not say at all.

Most of the things are what Paul said. Notice that Paul does not teach anything which Jesus taught and preached.

The relationship between faith and works is that works are the result of faith. In the Bible, faith and works are very often contrasted. They are not the same thing, and the combination of faith and works does not bring salvation. Salvation is by faith alone.

Rom. 3:28,“For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.”
Rom. 4:5,“But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness.”
Gal. 2:16,“nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus…”
False religious systems always teach that faith plus a person's works result in salvation. This is false, because our good works are filthy rags before God (Isa. 64:6). Therefore, we can’t do anything to please God by our good works. Gal. 2:21 says that if righteousness comes by the law (works), then Christ died needlessly.

Grace and truth CAME by Jesus Christ..Grace is God's unmerited favor. That is, grace is God doing good for us that we do not deserve

So in reality, Jesus Christ IS Grace.. Have a great day G Got a 10 hour work day ahead of me

Today's Prayer

Dear God, Your love is everlasting and far reaching. It touches my soul and lifts my spirit. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. No matter what gift I have, perhaps if the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and thought I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth, bears all things believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. Thank you, Father, that your love never fails. May I be more like Jesus, with love pure and true, and share your love with others always. In Jesus' name, amen.(in part from 1 Corinthians 13)

Today's Prayer
Dear God, I am so concerned about some of my friends and family members who are living in sin. Even Christians can make wrong choices and fall into a life of sin. I pray right now, that the Holy Spirit would move in a mighty way to convict them of their sin and their need to repent. I pray that you would give them strength and direction to step up out of that pit and return to you as their first love. Please, for their soul and sake and your glory, move in these special situations. And for those who do not know you, please bring people and circumstances into their lives that your power may be shown and their eyes may be opened. Save their souls and change their lives. May all glory and honor be unto You, My Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, amen.

Hi HFN, I'm doing fine, hope you are as well.
I'm doing cardiac rehab at the local Hospital and it's going well. I go 3 days a week for about an hour each day. The girl that's in charge is really good at pushing me to the level she wants me at. She's also very good at answering any questions or concerns I might have.
As I mentioned earlier I'm having an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) surgically put in my chest (under the skin just below my left collarbone) on January the 7th. It's something the Doctors say I need to have because of the danger of my heart going into arrhythmia's. If that happens the ICD would shock my heart back into rhythm and keep my heart from going into cardiac arrest. It's a very easy and safe surgery that would only keep me in the Hospital overnight as long as all goes well. It won't make my heart any stronger but it could definitely be a life saver if needed.
I thank you and everyone else for all of your prayers and well wishes. I am truly grateful to all of you.
I hope you have a great night. God bless you.
Hey RA.....Will keep you in prayer....That isn't a bad operation

God Bless and stay healthy
