I don't believe Jesus is God but I do believe His teachings apply today. Jesus may be God, I am neither, but if it were important to believe that then Jesus would have made itperfectly very clear that He was God and that believing He was God was mandatory so I don't think it matters. Same with his parentage and resurrection.

Jesus Himself said we cant mix the "new" with the "old"...Law(old) and Grace (new)..He tells us this with these parables..
"And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a NEW garment upon an OLD; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
And no man putteth NEW wine into OLD winskin..else they ferment and he LOSES BOTH.—Luke 5:36-39, KJV
Maybe it wasn't a parable at all, just a statement of fact. He was an amazing vintner I hear.

If you go to Church, and you see someone walk up to the minister to be SAVED,and, later was babtized, can you really say, this person is now saved and is now a Christian?(by your works, you shall know him)

No, you can't. The One way we as humans can tell is by that person's works, how he continues to live, and shows signs of being a true Christian.

God knows our HEART and our intentions of the Heart, HE alone, knows if that person was sincere in his REPENTENCE or if it was just for SHOW.

If there was more that we had to do to keep our Salvation, God would have told us , as Red Apples said, John 3:16 BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ and you WILL HAVE, everlasting life.

God would not GIVE us something, then take it away.

That is what SATAN does, He lies to us and is a PRETENDER, a FAKE.

THREE WORDS THAT PROVE
ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED
NOTE: This Bible study should only be read by those who know or who are willing to learn their English grammar and those who know how to use the Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary.
The three words that prove “once saved, always saved” as a valid doctrine are ALL, NEVER and IRREVOCABLE. The following definitions are taken out of the Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary:
as an adjective -
All - entire, complete
1. The whole number of...
2. The whole quantity of...
3. Every one of...
4. Any, any whatsoever
5. Every
6. The greatest possible
Bible Proof Verses:
“and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from ALL sin.” 1 John 1:7c
“He made you alive with Him, having forgiven us ALL our transgressions.” Colossians 2:13b, c
Greek Word Used in Bible for Above Verses:“pas”
Vine’s Greek Dictionary Definition of “pas”:
1. All, every, every kind or variety.
2. Highest degree, the maximum of what is referred to
3. Totality of the things being referred to (in plural)
COMMENT: Those who say that a person can “fall away”,“walk away”,“turn away”, or “backslide away” from the Lord, do not understand that the Lord has cancelled their sin debt completely. This includes ALL “fall aways”, ALL “walk aways”, ALL “turn aways” and ALL “backslide aways” from the Lord, since ALL these things are sins and therefore have ALL been paid for into the future until we die. To say that a person can “walk away” or “turn” from the Lord and thus lose salvation, assumes that Jesus forgot to pay for the “walk aways” and “turn aways”. He didn’t forget them, however. Those sins were also paid for at the cross and that’s why ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED. There is no way that we can lose our salvation.

I'd make an excellent movie critic considering that I've watched all movies.

The above statement is untrue. I haven't watched all movies. Regardless, my point is that the term "all" in my statement has as much to do with movies that haven't even been made yet as it does with sins that we haven't committed yet. It makes more sense to say that all our past sins have been forgiven us. To believe otherwise takes a great amount of interpretive acrobatics. To believe in such a doctrine would take a severe disregard of all verses that instruct us to repent of our present sins. If such a doctrine were true, no such instruction would exist, as all our present and future sins would be already forgiven us.

And I've shown, not a few times, that the term "believe," in the Greek texts, is interchangeable with the term "obey." So, to believe is to be obedient. But, certain of us ignored it, totally.

Just because you have shown it numerous times, the Greek definition,doesn't mean that it is RIGHT.

In our English , Believe means, that it is TRUE or genuine.

I BELIEVE that Satan exist, But I will not OBEY him.

We will WANT to Obey Christ and we will REPENT if we do sin.

Pardon me? Would you rather I not show the definition of the terms the authors of the Greek "New Testament" used when they wrote their gospels, letters, and epistles? Would it be "right" if it were someone else, then, like a well-known televangelist, or perhaps, your so-called "minister?"

Try to remember that the original "New Testament" texts were written in Greek, for the most part. Therefore, the definition of our English texts must still be subject to the original intent and definitions.

Why repent, though, if all our present and future sins are already forgiven us?

Would adultery, murder, or fornication, even be sin still if that were true?

I can not believe you have made such a statement.'If all present and future sins are already forgiven us, wouldn't any expression of repentance prove LACK of faith in what our annointed Savior acomplished on the cross'

What kind of religion or FAITH do you have, anyway?

So true!!!

At times it appears that bll makes things up as he goes along. The following scripture fits him to a "T".

James 1:5-8.

5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
_______

If you ask bll what he believes in and what he calls his belief he'll tell you that he's not a Christian or a Jew or anything else you've ever heard of. He'll tell you he's some belief/religion that he's made up and that he's named.

Completely bizarre to say the least.

sir
in my language very similar to old greek term "believe"

IS TO BELIEVE WITH ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE AND CLEANESS OF ALL SINS IN SPIRITUAL AND PHISICAL SENSE

WITHOUT OF THIS TYPE BELIEVING OUR FAITH IS DEAD-also saved believer without of daily works on His Faith,body and spirit is completly lost and unsaved

faith without of work is dead.....so Bible tell us simple and clear

in greek Holiness means saved always saved
in english Holines means saved not always saved,

those people lost deep sense of grace, work of Faith,Believe and completly obey as proff of Love our Lord

Jesus said
"if you love me,keep all commandments,and follow me?

Introduction 1.1
This is a thorough bible study about the Greek verb &#960;&#953;&#963; &#964;&#949;&#8059 ;&#969;,'pisteuo' meaning 'to believe'(Strong's 4100), and contains every scripture verse where the word 'pisteuo' appears in the New Testament. To obtain a true understanding of this word these scriptures need to be meditated on and notes made of their meaning in different contexts. This requires putting scriptures together where they seem to have a similar meaning, and then meditating even more. The truth will be revealed by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to guide us into all truth (John 16:13). Wherever this word pisteuo appears in the Greek, the translation of it is highlighted with bold type and underline. If the word is in italics then there is no equivalent word for it in the Greek. Every blessing be to those who seek the truth of God's word.

#1.1 Scriptures for &#960;&#953;&#963; &#964;&#949;&#8059 ;&#969; (Gtr. pisteuo) meaning 'to believe'(Strong's 4100)

http://www.logosapostolic.org/greek_word_stud...
_______

In the Greek New Testament, the word “faith” is mostly “pistis” and the words “believe” or “believed” are mostly “pisteuo”. Vine states:“The main elements in faith in its relation to the invisible God, as distinct from faith in man, are especially brought out in the use of this noun (‘pistis’) and the corresponding verb,‘pisteuo’; they are (1) a firm conviction, producing a full acknowledgement of God’s revelation or truth e.g, 2 Thessalonians 2:11,12.(2) a personal surrender to Him, John 1:12; (3) a conduct inspired by such surrender, 2 Corinthians 5:7. Prominence is given to one or other of these elements according to the context”.[1]

IMHO people who believe in Jesus should try to do as Jesus taught only because Jesus taught it, not because it will "save" them.
I think those that just want to be "saved" or have "eternal life" are missing the wholepoint.
I try to follow Jesus even though I may end up in Hell anyway. I accept that...in Jesus name.
Excellent conclusion!

The teachings of our anointed Savior, being the spiritual significance and proper application of the law, or the very law itself, was NEVER for one to "be saved." The law was and is to teach us the most profitable lifestyle that benefits all people. The spiritual significance and application of the law is righteousness. And only righteous thoughts, actions, reactions, and speech, will be allowed in the coming kingdom of Glory. And that's the condition that many wish were not true, or become delusional to the belief that it's not.

The application and obedience of the law does not guarantee entrance into the kingdom. But, disobedience, on the other hand, will disallow entrance. Our application and obedience, all in all, proves our desire to enter the kingdom, as our present application and disobedience proves our belief that "God" knows, better than we do, how we should live, just like how "God" knows, better than we do, what we should eat, so forth and so on. But, what's to think of a person that chooses, rather, to live according to their own definitions of love and respect instead of that prescribed us in the scriptures? What does "God" think of those that declare how none can become perfect even though we have numerous scriptures that instructs us to become just that? What does "God" think of those that teach others that none can lose salvation even though we have a myriad of verses that prove stipulations exist? What does "God" think of those that claim to believe Him, but ignores all the verses that instruct us to keep the commandments and that we'll be saved "if"?

Salvation is based on our faith in "God" and His only-begotten Son. But, what does this mean?

"Faith" is equivalent to "belief." In this, we must believe in "God" and His only-begotten Son. And in this, to believe in them means that we believe all they've told us. This means that as "God" declared the He has a Son, and that He sent His Son to die as our substitute, we believe Him, without wavering. When "God" said that His law is a lamp and light, we believe Him. When it's written that a kingdom without unrighteousness is approaching, we believe Him. When it's written that the penalty of death is fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him. Therefore, we'll not carry out the death sentence, as we believe that only "God" is worthy enough to administer such punishment. When it's written that the sacrifice of animals has been fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him. Therefore, we'll not depend on the blood of animals to be forgiven and reconciled to Him. When it's written that the precepts of the Sabbaths are fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him, knowing that a far greater rest is approaching. When it's written that circumcision is fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him. Therefore, we'll not depend on circumcision in order to enter into a covenant with Him. And when He declares how that all the ceremonial laws have been fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him. Therefore, we'll not rely on any of these ceremonies in order to be considered "clean" before Him. When He declares that adultery is fulfilled in His Son, we believe Him. Therefore, we've no fear of consequence if we commit adultery. Wait.....

I agree. None should rely on obedience to the law in order to be saved. Obedience to the law should be fueled by the fact and knowledge that we know it's the right thing to do. If we obey the law in order to be saved, our intentions are selfish. And selfishness does not promote sincerity.

Shalowm.
