why didnít God just grab the devil by the neck and throw him out of the garden?Ē
God did not do that because He is a judicial God. It was a man who gave away his authority to Satan. So it had to be a man who would legally take it back. And God has done this through a Man. His name is Jesus!

Is the death penalty right or wrong ?
The death penalty is neither commanded nor forbidden in the New Testament:

Romans 13 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is Godís servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are Godís servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are Godís servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
_________

I'd say the point is pretty clear: Obey the law, and then you won't have to worry whether the death penalty is right or wrong.

Wrong..the civil and ceremonial parts were NOT engraved in stone my friend..We must Believe God even if we find it going against what our dear Preachers who went to school and learned from Men have been screaming from the pulpits for years. How was Noah Justified?? What did he do to be justified? What did Abraham do to be justified?
Good Afternoon... time flies as I've been saying Good Morning lol... but actually, I am correct about the civil and ceremonial laws being abolished and you are correct that they weren't written in stone, the moral code was... that is why I referenced the following scripture earlier as the civil and ceremonial were handwritten:

"Blotting out THE HANDWRITING of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, NAILING IT TO HIS CROSS..." Colossians 2:14-16

The moral code is written in on the tablets of heart.

Thats right..We Gentiles have it written in our hearts. We KNOW the difference between right and wrong. We dont need a list of rules to tell us that. Isn't God Amazing?? The Laws are still used today to bring people to Christ as it was intended to do. Re-read what you just posted. Meditate on it a while and pray for understanding. You could be a great preacher of the Gospel after you fully understand the Gospel.
So then we should put down the New Testament, disregard the Apostolic doctrine and simply follow the rules written on our hearts? Smile.

How many of you truly believe... that if a person truly accepts Christ, gets baptized.. much later on becomes a great preacher and then turns around because of some unfortunate situation... blasts God, says that he is gay, lives with his boyfriend unrepentantly and dies... Do you really think that the Grace of God and the Once Saved Always Saved gospel is going to apply and save him?

Show of hands. Doc?

And please spare me the "they weren't really saved" speech and cliche. Thanks

REVELATION

Rev 1:9 (Part 2 continued/last)

"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. Some scripture regarding companionship:

A. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because THESE ARE IMPROPER FOR GOD'S HOLY PEOPLE. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.---> FOR OF THIS YOU CAN BE SURE: No immoral, impure or greedy personósuch a man is an idolateróhas any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things GOD'S WRATH COMES ON THOSE WHO ARE DISOBEDIENT.

>>Therefore do not be partners with them.<<


For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. LIVE AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) AND FIND OUT WHAT PLEASES THE LORD. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what THE DISOBEDIENT do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible.

2. Speaking of not being partnered with... Once Saved Always Saved was borrowed from Gnosticism but flourished under Calvinism and filtered it's way through the Body of Christ:

For G-man, Jack and anyone interested in some history - G-man/Jack, interesting reading IMHO. I wasn't aware of some of these historical allegations as of recent but I think that it's necessary to look into what OSAS morphed from:

Not nice Q..You are purposely adding to what I said and you know it. Please dont do that. We are not under the Old Testament Laws any longer but I STILL read the Old Testament AND The New Testament. It would be self-defeating to deire a greater understanding of the Bible by cutting portions out. God forbid we eliminate or ignore one word, syllable, or punctuation from the complete sacred text of Godís perfect Word!

The entire Bible is written FOR US, but not every verse is addressed TO US or written ABOUT US.
In no sense, would students of the Bible be better off by ignoring certain books, or rejecting books as beneficial to our profit and application!

ďAll scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessÖĒĖ 2 Tim 3:16
Although it is only in Paulís epistles that we find the mystery information about the grace given to us in this dispensation, certainly this does not diminish the benefit that can be gained from any other verse of Scripture.
Have a great afternoon. I have to get to class now. Be back soon.

Yes, God's grace can still save him. Whether or not he IS saved is between him and the Lord alone.

I'm sorry to disagree with you TH, but our Lord said in Matthew 24:13 that he who endureth unto the END the same shall be saved.

This contradicts the scriptures my friend

What a crock!! If God were omnipotent and omniscient, this would amount to playing with himself.

Now you're splitting hairs. It is not for you or me to say what happens between the Lord and this man during the last few moments of the man's life.

Hey Grace Walker, did you ever hear of a poster named Real Sassy? The people in the 10 commandments thread had finally figured out that it was the same person using different user names talking to each other on that thread and other threads... And I was just, er... wondering about that.
