<quoted text>Hey Q...I agree it comes down to free will and imo think pretty much every choice boils down to giving in to the flesh or following the Spirit. If one went solely by 1John 3:9 in its strictest sense we would all be in rough shape but I think that is obviously why we compare scripture and look at it in its entirety to get the full picture. I personally think forgiveness is ongoing so long as repentance is ongoing which is would be if one continues to allow the Spirit to convict him. But if one basically says screw it and turns his back on God and returns to the world and unrepentant sin then he is no longer covered by the Sacrifice.Repentance cant be faked, not to God anyway so any preplanned deathbed confessions wont do the trick but God will always forgive those who r truly sorry imo (T) PEACE
Makes sense to me...then again I'm a heretic. LOL

Thank you, when you call me self righteous and pompous, I really take that as a compliment coming from you because it let me know that I must be doing something right before my Lord when I am standing on the fullness of his Word, and if these things bother you than I would suggest that you follow the Word suggestion to examine yourself to see rather you be in THE faith.

As for that which you call "over the top" ..........at the risk of sounding "pompous" and the "over the top" self righteous and perhaps self centered by your standards, I am already Blessed to be in that which has been established in the top of the mountains and exalted above the hills and pray that you and others will one day be likewise Blessed before exiting this life.

Have a Blessed night.

I see you completely avoided giving me a straight answer to my question Q. Responding to questions with questions is not answering questions Q.

Care to try again, or are you going to avoid answering again?

Because you claim a person can lose their salvation after they've been saved, so than tell us if you lost, and will lose, your salvation as per the questions I asked you?

<quoted text>Hey John! saw ur post in a reply but didnt realize u had just made it and were around now. you know me, had to at least dabble in this discussion! LOL But am just writing to say Hi. How has the rehab been going? I cant remember what day in December you said you were having that apt to decide the next step. did that happen already? if so whats the decision if u dont mind me asking?(T) PEACE
Hey Skom.

Rehab is going well. I go M,W and F for about an hour each day. I work on a machine that's kind of like a sit down version of what it would be like to cross country ski. The girl that's in charge of me says of all the exercise machines they have the one I'm on seems to do the best job of working the most muscles.

I had my appointment last week with another heart specialist about having an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) implanted in my chest. He feels it's something I really need. So I go in on January the 7th to have it done. It's a pretty minor surgery that only takes about 2-3 hours if all goes according to plan. I will be in the Hospital over night than home the next day if all goes well. The recovery time is only a couple of weeks with just a few restrictions.

Guess I'll climb back in the sack and catch some more zzz's. Have a good one. God bless.

Hi Le_le, it's good to see you here. Great post. Right on the money. I agree 100% with what you said. Very perceptive on your part.

Well done.

I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year full of God's abundant blessings.

I disagree but respect your arguement and the thought put into it. It still doesn't resolve the Boolean impossibility. Either God is a God of the Dead or God isn't. The time and audience doesn't affect that. The contradiction still stands unless Jesus or Paul was lying to their audience. My money is on Jesus telling the truth. <smile>
The problem with Christian apologetics is that they can not take Jesus' word over Pauls and since the entire theology is predicated on Paul they have to align the two.
Thus the massive explanations instead of simply acknowledging that Paul was wrong.
That is the crux of Paulinism. Without Paul, modern Christianity would crumble if forced to rely on the teachings of the words of Jesus alone.
Perhaps, you didn't notice my mention, that our anointed Savior and Paul were referring to two different individuals. Our anointed Savior was referring to Father, while Paul was referring to our anointed Savior. The only way what you believe to be contradiction could actually be is if both, our anointed Savior and Paul, were talking about Father. But, they weren't.

It seems to me as if you're trying to push the so-called "trinity" doctrine to the front, as this would be the only way this alleged contradiction might hold. I say this, because repeatedly, you've said, paraphrased--yet quoted, that "Either God is a God of the Dead or God isn't." You're argument is based on a title, for starters, and one that's not even present in both verses. According to your contention, Paul would have to be referring to our anointed Savior while our anointed Savior, to himself, or our anointed Savior would have to referring to Father while Paul was referring to our anointed Savior as Father, as well. This is not the case, though. Our anointed Savior was referring to Father, as "God," while Paul, again, was referring to our anointed Savior, as "Lord." Even the fact that these titles of exaltation are shared doesn't justify the mere thought that Paul contradicted our anointed Savior.

Examine your contention again, my friend. Again, your contention only makes sense if the two are referring to the same individual, but they aren't. And unless you want to begin a debate to prove the existence of this alleged "trinity," then this is going to be a long debate, as I don't believe in any so-called "trinity."

Thank you for your time and consideration, my friend.

Until next time...

Shalowm.

<quoted text>How are you doing my friend? I have missed you. No I did not see it yet, only read the last page but plan on going back to do some catching up soon and will look for it. I have been real busy with work and the posting I have been doing has been elsewhere as I wandered off to have some discussions and debates and...be ready for the shock...to lace up the boxing gloves for a few rounds! I know..me right? Who woulda figured? LOL..But as it is getting closer to the holidays I have found myself missing here a lot more. I think I could use some time back with old friends and some much neededfellowship. I have much to be grateful for and want to spend my time focused on God now instead of petty squabbles on the internet.I love this time of year as in both real life and our little virtual online family we get to do some catching up(T) PEACE
I saw some of the "debates"....

Glad you are back...God Bless

Agreed, Jesus believed in a single God while Paul believed in at least three....another contradiction.

There is only one God according to the first commandment and the entire OT. God is either God of the dead or God isn't God of the dead. Can't have it both ways without abbandoning monotheism. That was the whole reason for inventing "The Trinity" AKA "Godhead"(a Hindu concept).

Then Jesus is NOT God (agreed) and Paul does not believe that Jesus is God. That would destroy Christianity ! <snicker>
