Thank you for taking the time to post this.
It's my pleasure, Le_le. I try, to the best of my ability, to be an example of love in all I do, including my posts (Rom 13:8). I can only hope that this is evident.

I believe not one of us can know another man's heart and walk w God.
I believe a tree is known by its fruit (Matt 12:33).

I believe not one of us will be left behind when all is said and done..
If this "us" means "believers that have remained faithful and obedient unto the end (Heb 3:14)," then I agree.
Le_le wrote:
Maybe this seems unrealistic to you and your heart, to me
it's as real as it gets.
Let's hope your ministers are honorable, trustworthy, and informed (2Cor 11:14-15).
Le_le wrote:
You can carry on with your beliefs and I will do the same
with mine..
Is that what Moses did? The prophets? The apostles? Our anointed Savior?

With all due respect, but it's that type of attitude that conceived division in the first place.

As for Lawlest- I am just not comfortable identifying myself w his kind of
"Christianity".
I felt similarly about Christendom at 14 years of age. Some 11 years later, I began calling my religion "Mashiyachiym," which is the Hebrew equivalent of our English transliterated "Christian." I say "some 11 years later," because it took 11 years of study and comparison before I decided to separate myself, by name, from Christendom's many denominations.

Likewise, Le_le.

God said we are all gods (elohim) so in that respect Jesus is a god (elohim) as well. That does not make him or any of us God (El / YHWY).

Back to my original thesis, Jesus is not God and never claimed to be.
But, neither did Paul claim that our anointed Savior and Father are one and the same. Regardless of how many share the title "God," an order exists. Paul, in any case, referred to our anointed Savior in the same manner our anointed Savior did of himself, recorded at John 10:30-36.
G_O_D wrote:
I am just going by what Christians claim,
And this is why I tried to explain to you, that this is the issue with anyone that believes Paul contradicted our anointed Savior. Doubters don't examine Paul's writings to come to this conclusion, but accept the so-called "Christian's" interpretations of his writings.
G_O_D wrote:
there is little evidence to support that Paul knew anything about Jesus, Judaism or YHWY.
Your assertion is an old one. I can only hope you don't really believe that good ol' George Washington, as a child, couldn't lie when asked if he had chopped down the cherry tree.

No that didn't answer those questions, that dodged them. But I'm not surprised, I figured that's what you would do.
Sometimes trivial pursuits from some people require trivial responses... but my response given to you was way more cordial then the questions directed at me by you based on what I saw were dishonest questions in the least. No Bro, I answered your questions, it's just not the responses that you were hoping for in some effort to pounce. I'm sorry that I took that joy away from you... but just like a bar of soap which some trickster would leave in the hallway hoping that someone would meet their demise... I stepped over it, not "on it."

It would be nice if you answered my initial questions though but if it would involve an outbreak of temper tantrums, a quiet riot and trite remarks from you then I would rather have peace.

With all due respect Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay my brother.

REVELATION

Rev 1:9

"I, John, YOUR BROTHER and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus."

__________

1. I, John,- Again clearly, John the PROPHET is the author of this letter and he's making a unique salutation to the churches, specifically to those of the seven churches in Asia as he was being instructed. Hopefully, we'll get into learning more about those 7 churches later. John wrote to them specifically but obviously The Holy Spirit had substantially greater plans in in readership. Even though John was a prophet, I'm wondering if he had any idea that his letter would get world-wide dissemination? By world-wide dissemination I mean his letter being spread to the four corners of the earth and read hundreds of millions, if not, billions and billions of times over the courses of the two milleniums in several tongues, I mean, languages.

A. Apostle Paul: "We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is PROPHESYING, let him use it in proportion to his faith." Ro 12:6

B. Apostle Peter: "Each one should use whatever gift he has received TO SERVE OTHERS, faithfully administering God's grace in its VARIOUS FORMS." I Peter 4:10

C. Apostle Paul again: "Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers, PROPHECY however, IS FOR BELIEVERS, not for unbelievers..." I Cor 14:22 (but read to verse 25 to get full context of the Apostle's assertion)

2. YOUR BROTHER - He says that he is their brother... hmmmmm... But how can one be a brother and one is not necessarily related? I've heard of soul brother (referring to ethnicity), I've heard the terms frat brother used (as in fraternity), the masonic brotherhood, blood brothers and the like... But truly, when one personally and genuinely accepts by faith, The Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour AND does the will of God then they are entering into a genuine, divine brotherhood of Believers born and baptized of The same Holy Spirit:

A. Peter: "Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love FOR YOUR BROTHERS, love one another deeply, from the heart." I Peter 1:22

B. Author unknown (possibly Apollos): "Keep on loving each other AS BROTHERS..." Hebrews 13:1

C. Paul: "Now about BROTHERLY LOVE we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other." I Thessalonia 5:9

D. Apostle James: "Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it." James 4:11

E. So what about the Sista's?

(1) Paul: "Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave; the brother or the SISTER is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us to peace." I Cor 7

(2) Paul: "Have we not power to lead about A SISTER, A WIFE, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? I Cor 9

a. A SISTER, A WIFE = A Believing Wife

b. Just like my wife (Mrs. Qu'innocence), is my sister. Now she isn't my sister in the flesh but she is my sister in the Spirit. Anything wrong or incestuous with that? Nope, didn't think so.

(3) Jesus: "Whoever does God's will is my brother and SISTER and mother."

(4) More on Sista's: Romans 16:1... I Timothy 5:2... James 2:15... 2 John 1:13

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?
Hi Red....
I was waiting for his answer also. I think I know where you were going with this and I believe he did too. Have a great night
