Regarding the study on Revelation 2 regarding the church at Ephesus is that one could go too far with "works" and forget the "first works". The very first of the first works is to love God WITH ALL YOUR HEART.... then it goes on to say with all your soul, then mind and the last of it is "with all your strength" Mark 12:30. It seems like they were focusing too much on the last part (the strength) when they should of been focused on the first parts... heart and soul and then the rest of it.

Jesus: "For where your treasure is, THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO." Mt 6:21

So rather than treasuring God in their hearts, they were treasuring God with their deeds.

----------

And the pendulum could swing to the other extreme also when it comes to just a message of Grace... as such was the case with the Nicolatians. They felt like they were already saved so they could do whatever they liked. So that is what they did. Now though Jesus rebuked the church at Ephesus for leaving their first love... He gave them credit for hating "the deeds" of the Nicolatians. Look at what Jesus said:

Jesus (to Ephesus): "But you have this in your favor - You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."

Though the term "antinomianism" was coined much later, in deed, this is what they believed in. It was just a message of salvation through grace and faith alone. A lot of the antinomianists (which I was one myself) quote Ephesians 2:8,9 often but they forsake to go further into verses 10 and 11 of the same chapter where Paul refers to "good works'. And James complete the circle also by saying that Faith without works is dead. Just like the body without the spirit is dead. They go hand in hand.

So again, works only is one extreme and is wrong... but it seems to be more preferable than the other extreme message of Grace only. There has to be a balance of both.

Okay, done with Ephesus... good lessons for me. Moving on to Smyrna. Jesus is Lord.

Hi Quin.
Great post. I have a question though. Why is it that a person hears the Grace message and the first thing they say is....They think they can do anything they want and still be saved? Thats the wrong mentality to have when it comes to Grace. I know that there are people who do that, However, for the most part, They do not think that way. A person who believes in The Grace Gospel understands that ALL their sins are forgiven and from that, they tend to stay away from willful sin out of adoration and respect. Truth be told, People who disagree with Justification by Faith sin just as much as those under grace..There is no difference there and no difference in sin, weather it be willful or not. Then we also have to understand the word SIN..The NOUN..SIN..not the verb or ACTION of sin such as lying, cheating, stealing.ect..ect.. All that is a RESULT of the noun SIN. In the book of Romans, The word "Sin" is used 49 times which the NOUN "HAMARTIA” is used 47 times and the verb or actions of sin is only used twice. Its the sin nature we struggle with.Understanding that will help a great deal. Have a blessed day Quin.

No offense taken, but...

First, Juicylu, I really don't appreciate when people refer to discussions I'm in as "arguments," as I try, to the best of my ability, to remain as respectful as humanly possible and not argumentative. I don't believe I'm being argumentative simply because I expect the same common courtesy that I extend to all else, addressing assertions and answering questions as expected, and not just ignoring them. And as far as Grace Walker's beliefs and mine go, I'm sure that a lot of them are similar. But, when it comes to the idea that believers can choose whether keeping the commandments is necessary or not, I have no choice but to expose the truth of the matter. The same goes with this "once saved, always saved" doctrine.

I'm sure you've noticed how that either, Skombolis (especially), Qu_innocence, LAWEST100, Counter_Strike, or myself (especially), would compose a post with scripture quotes, with or without commentary and/or interpretation, that shows either, that it's a must we keep the commandments, or how the term "if" is used to indicate a stipulation. The fact of the matter is, such beliefs, as Grace Walker's, could only be valid if all these other verses didn't exist. In this, such beliefs can only exist if the interpretation of the other verses are compromised. Such beliefs only exist because the (most likely, incorrect) interpretation of one verse is highly regarded while the others ignored, or wholly rejected altogether. Case in point...

As a warning to the converted Gentiles regarding the disbelief of Israel, Paul wrote, "Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off." Now, in your opinion, does it sound like salvation is guaranteed? They were told, "Be not highminded, but fear." What's to fear if salvation is guaranteed? If salvation was guaranteed with no chance of losing salvation, then why would Paul write, "Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling"? What's there to work out? And why fear and trembling?

Truly, my posts might come off a bit argumentative. But, believe me, that's not my intention. As we've all come to agree with, at times, the tone of our posts are difficult to determine. But, if anything, pay close attention to our "argument." The same verses, among many others, have been quoted numerous times, but people refuse to address them, to show how either, we're in error, or how they remain harmonious with the verses that they use to attempt to prove their beliefs accurate. All I ask for is the same common courtesy. Why, just last night, I was accused of perverting scriptures when, in actuality, all I did was quote verses while not adding any commentary or interpretation to any of the verses I quoted. And sadly, this has become quite common, not only in this thread, but in almost all threads.

Thank you for your time and consideration, Juicylu.

Until next time...

Good Morning Grace, Amen... they think that no matter what they do... even to the point that if a person who had accepted Christ in the past backslid and never repented and turned back to Christ... that they are forever saved no matter what. But that is not scripturally true. That is false.

You're being a complete hypocrite Skom and everybody sees it. So take your juvenile attempt at dragging me into this down the road pal because it won't work.
You couldn't be anymore transparent. The reason you're now mad at me and attacking me as well is because I'm calling it like it is and because I'm defending someone you don't like. I'm calling a spade a spade and exposing your hypocrisy and you don't like it. One would think you'd be use to that by now. Because it's happened to you many many times in here.
Open your eyes Skom. There's more people that have posted in here that you've attacked at one time or another than there are people that you haven't attacked. I would be willing to bet of all the regulars (and of course any grey boxer) that post and have posted in here you could probably count the ones you haven't attacked using just the fingers on your two hands.
So attack away Skom, I've seen it before and I've been a target of it many times as well (like since the first day you showed up in here). And I'm sure I'll see it and be a target again. And even though it's nothing new it has gotten rather old. But it's something that many in here have learned to ignore.
We've all come to expect it from you. Because it's all a part of your broken record pattern that we've all seen over and over and over again. And even though those of us that have been here since you first showed up in here have gotten use to it and have seen it so many times before from you we continue to hope and pray for the day it finally stops. Because it's become very old, very childish, and very boring to watch day after day after day in here.

However, for the most part, They do not think that way.
Some do believe that way concerning Once Saved Always Saved... that no matter what a person does, backslide or whatever, they are still saved no matter what. But some do not go to that full extreme (that a person can do what they want) but they are still in a crux because when they are asked the question of a person who completely left Christ and dies... they may not say that person is not saved but they justify themselves and their own consciences (seared by a hot iron) by saying that we cannot judge because they don't have a better answer... but the scriptures tells us plainly. I think that those who don't go to the full extreme of OSAS, still believe in their hearts (with good intentions) that the person who backslide and dies is saved.

Did you miss ALL the verses that I quoted last night that backs up my claim? Just verses..No commentary. There is verses that back up both..However, If you are going to quote Paul, you must know that paul ONLY preached The Grace Messgae. The commandments we are to obey are The 2 that Jesus left..ALL the rest hang on these 2 commandments..Do you need or want the scripture that backs that up as well?

Speaking for myself...

Because I've seen many a believer that not only believed in such a doctrine, but preached the same, and got caught committing adultery, fornication, or what-have-you. And all the while before they became exposed, they were highly regarded as "spiritual," and as having the Holy Spirit. Then, they would come on television crying and begging for forgiveness.

What thoughts and beliefs led them to think and act as they did? And how many of them would have came out and admitted their sins had they not been exposed?

Now, I understand that this isn't the normal mode of operation for all that believe in such doctrines, but we've been given enough evidence that this mode exists, nonetheless. I don't think numbers matter in this case, as if such doctrines shouldn't be examined and re-examined because only a minority gets exposed as hypocrites. To understand more my contention, look into Jose Luis dejesus Miranda and see just how far this issue goes.

Until next time, my friend...

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God <--- NOT BY WORKS, SO THAT NO ONE CAN BOAST. FOR WE are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus TO DO GOOD WORKS, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Eph 2:89

That is a balanced way of looking at that particular scripture. You have the Grace message there that we all know about in 8,9... and then it goes on to verse 10 about Good Works... Grace, Faith and Good Works go hand in hand.

The demonic teaching is the Antinomianistic "Once Saved Always Saved" Gospel, not the Grace Gospel. The Grace Gospel is fine.
