Accept him whoses faith is weak without passing judgment on disputable matters.One man's faith allows him to eat everything but another man's whose faith is weak eats only vegetables.

The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does,for God has accepted him.

So...your belief doesn't convince me of much other than that you are a believer.
convince you? me laughing! is that what you think I'm trying to do? really? Lol.

Experiencing Jesus Christ is not a religion. Going to church reading the bible and saying 'God bless you' is religion.

Believing the words of Jesus, acting on the words of Jesus, applying the words of Jesus, then seeing the evidence of Jesus words happen for real, and experiencing the spiritual reality of God's Spirit promised by Jesus Christ, that is what it means to be saved writer.

What the bible says will happen when you accept Jesus Christ, can be confirmed and established. Who else in history that make the claim that they is a savior can be confirmed and established in that way?

Nobody else, but Jesus Christ. you can dismiss it as religion if you want to, but Jesus followers know better than that.

It could have been the browser that was acting up... I'm on the same computer using a different browser and it's working fine now.

Can't stay too long today... but on that 3 heavens. Paul mentioned that he had a vision and went to the 3rd heaven... that speaks of the heaven we usually talk about in today's terms. Then you have the heavens of what we physcially see (the clouds, the sky, the sun, the stars, space... yadda yadda).. the 2nd heaven, not so sure about as I haven't even looked that up yet. But I do know that their are spiritual forces that we cannot see around us.
Whether those forces are good or bad. By good I mean angelic messengers & The Holy Spirit and by bad I mean the fallen angels or demons.

Even if I weren't saved I would know that spiritual forces exist as my stepfather was into santeria (witchcraft basically/voodoo) and saw "things" happen that were supernatural. And no, I never joined or practiced that evil situation.

@Juicy

I saw it posted that Paul did not teach about marriage. The Bible says otherwise

1 Corinthians 7
1Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry.a 2But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband.

8Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. 9But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

But for those who have interpreted Paul to be teachings that supersede those of Jesus Christ, as a woman you might be interested in seeing what Paul believes your salvation is tied to

1Timothy 2
11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

It would seem for women it would be Once-Saved always saved so long as they are submissive to men and raise babies.

I am just kidding as Paul didn't teach once-saved. In fact as you can see he added a very strict condition for women which is they must have children. Sure sounds like a work to me. But then again I am a guy so maybe its easier than I think?

:)

I hope whatever people teach on Facebook comes with some verses.

If you want to get the complete picture IMO you should ask any questions where people don't need to hide their beliefs or refuse to give their interpretations. If their beliefs can't withstand scrutiny perhaps they aren't as solid as people want you to believe? I have yet to hear a good reason why a believer would refuse to give their interpretation. In fact the only situation I have seen it in is when a verse seems to clearly contradict what they claim

I say ask questions in public and let people present all the information and let the truth rise to the top as you see it. Only people with a personal agenda would want to keep that from you

<quoted text>
And please tell us what you did in the hospital, and how your performance exceeded that of the physicians that didn't "actually gave a shit much beyond themselves." What was different about you that would enable the people around you to discern that you were better than the physicians? Did you take money?
I was in Maintenance..........

I actually did care about the patients and my co-workers. Making sure everything operated properly, making sure things were maintained to prevent breakdowns. Maybe the job wasn't as important as knowing what kind of drug to prescribe a patient, but i had empathy at least and did my duties.

I remember being on call one weekend. I was called in to drive to a distant hospital to get some blood of a blood type we didnt have on hand. The nurse who gave me the instructions was in tears when I got there. I didnt know why and didnt ask. I found out later in the week, she had called the doctor who was on call that weekend. He happened to be on the golf course when he got the call and was furious. he came in and reminded her he was never to be called when he was on the course and tore her a new you know what.

I found out later also that he was notorious on his weekends to intimidate these nurses into not calling him. I could give other examples. In the 5 years I worked there I met about 7 Doctors, of which I knew one of them to actually show he cared about his patients health and well being. That doctor himself was so dissatisfied with how things were run and, rumorhad it, his fellow doctors, that he started his own practice.

I guess what would make me different then the physicians was the fact that i gave a shit about my job, as insignificant as compared to a doctors job as it was. I played a small part in the patients and staffs comfort but I took it seriously.

So how do you reconcile this apparent unkept promise? Allegory? That's the usual way.
You missed my point, I think.

First, it wasn't an reneged promise, or an allegory. It was an illustration to teach the power of faith. And with this, our anointed Savior also said to his apostles, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." And in this, I offer you the following...

"And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one."

As I said, our anointed Savior's statement regarding faith equivalent to the size of a mustard seed was to teach the power of faith, all in all. And what he promised did come to pass, beginning at Pentecost. My question, though, was to provoke our critical thinking skills. You see, either we have to admit that our faith is little to none, not having the power to cause even a grain of sand to move without physically moving it ourselves (which anyone, even the atheist, could do), or we have to admit that we're no longer endowed with such power. In this, then, maybe some of us are correct when we suggest that the function of the Holy Spirit, in our generations, differs greatly from that of the first century. And if people can accept this, then just maybe we can...

1) stop not only those people that mumble, make up words, and foam at the mouth, while claiming that they're speaking in tongues by the power of the Holy Spirit, but also others from being deceived by such nonsense.

2) stop not only those that claim to cast out demons from people that the audience doesn't know, for sure, was even possessed to begin with, by the power of the Holy Spirit, but also others from being deceived by such nonsense.

3) stop not only those that claim to heal people, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in front of an audience that doesn't know for sure the alleged "healed" was legitimately suffering to begin with, but also others from being deceived by such nonsense.

4) stop those that seem only to perform such miracles that can easily be the illusions of a very deceptive "miracle-worker," while none raise the dead, or feed a multitude with a loaf of bread and a fish, or perform any miracles that can stand the test of thorough examination.

5) stop the reasonable questions as to why "God" heals people with the flu, but not an amputee victim.

That's all I was asking...

Now you're calling the lawyers 98% dishonest? "Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"
LOL..........

Hey, I can only go by my lifes experience. I was in a car accident awhile ago. I thought I better get a lawyer. My lawyer told me it was a standard case and it would cost $1500. It ended up at $3000 and I got the maximum sentence allowed.

As I sat and listened to him plead my case to the judge, just before sentencing, I couldn't help but wonder how this guy graduated High School let alone a bar exam.

I've met 1 lawyer in my life worth his salt, and he mainly did real estate transactions. Pretty straightforward stuff.

Again just my experience.
