Brag on God.
And until God opens their eyes, they will never see.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into
judgment, but has passed from death into life.(John 5:24)
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”(1 John 5:13)
Hello Drew

Is it written, a GOD must open the eyes of a unbeliever?

<quoted text>D by the Lord when His ONLY STANDARD is TOTAL HOLINESS?? I'll tell you how,Skombolis: By FULLY TRUSTING in the 'Finished Work' of the Holy Cross of Calvary,instead of our 'own works'. Night...
That sounds great doc...poetic almost. The problem is if one doesnt remain faithful and obedient after accepting the Lord they will not be saved and every author of the Bible says this. Hey I wish OSAS was true. Why wouldnt I? But why does scripture say nothing of the sort? I cant believe I just saw someone post one verse as if that is the culmanation of the entire Bible. But thats what ppl do. They take a single verse saying something like trust in Christ to be saved and then dont address the hundreds of verses that add to that. They will say we are only under Romans to Phillemon or the teachings of Christ dont apply to us. If I was allowed to wipe out thousands of verses in the NT I could make it seem like the Bible said all sorts of things too

Had to edit ur post for space. How is discussing a parable in the Bible "pimping the Bible"?
I was talking about faith being pimped without any warning as to it's negative side effects.

LOL...What are the negative instructions of the NT?
IANS keeps the lists. Have you seen them?

What you think is digusting about the Bible dcoesnt interest me. To each their own. If you dont see the value then dont read it.
Don't you want to improve your evangelism? You'll need to keep up with what is socially acceptable to do that. Christianity has been adapting to survive since it's inception. Talking about mindless obedience isn't very good way to attract prospects anymore.
Skombolis wrote:
It isnt a complicated issue to resolve. A lot of ppl are under the misconception we care if you reject the faith and feel a need to badger you into Accepting it.
Who is "we"? You aren't talking about Christians. They're just as liable to badger as not. It's one of those cherry tenets.

Once i did my job of telling u its on you. I mention this cus u guys keep telling us why you dont like the Bible. Whats the reason for telling us out of curiosity?
Would you want to know if you were wrong?
Skombolis wrote:
Expand on love and pray for enemy ? Really? well its like loving ur neighbor..except replace neighbor with enemy! Whadda want from me? Thats pretty self-explanatory!
What does "love" mean in this context? Do you allow your enemy to kill you, steal from you, take you for a slave? Do you not defend yourself? Do you not retaliate? How many of the enemy are you allowed to kill to save your allies? What I'm asking is, is it more than a feeling?



If this kind of love is like the love the God character has, you can be really shitty with your enemy. You could torture them forever for little more than disrespect.

He will probably answer you because it is a verse he agrees with. Ask him why the Gentiles are told in Romans that they avoided severity and instead received goodness because they believed but were warned that even the natural branches (jews) can be cut off so all the more reason for them to keep their faith and to remain in God's goodness so they dont also get cut off?You like to mix it up right? or consider it a favor to me! i know i wont get an answer other than being told God has blinded me

@Tide...I didnt read IANs list. my evengelism could care less what is socially acceptable. I dont tailer what I believe to make it more pleasing. Sure Id want to know if I was wrong. I dont think you are in any position biblically to show me however. That is based purely on merit not pride. As for love thy enemy its not a convoluded concept and Im not going to entertain a discussion attempting to make it one. (T) PEACE

Genesis 10:8&9 says of Nimrod He was the first on earth to be a mighty man.He was a mighty hunter before the Lord.He had a great kingdom that included several cities in Babylonia and Assyria.The Bible says that he built Nineveh as well.

Hello Skombolis, always a pleasure to receive a reply from you, except of course when you rant, we all do not a problem.

Ishmael:Father of the Arabs.

Ishmael was the son of Abraham by his wife's maid,Keturah(or Hagar)She was driven away from the household when Sarah's taunting became unbearable(Genesis 16).God promised that Ishmael's descendants would make a great nation also and Arabs generally trace their ancestry back to him.The Quran states that Abraham and Ismail(Ishmael)built the Kaba(the house of god in Mecca) as the house of God.This was long before the Temple in Jerusalem was built.

Abraham Father of a Great Nation.

Abraham's orginal name was Abram,which means exalted father or the father is exalted.God gave him his new name Abraham which is explains as father of a multitude.This was to emphasize God's promise to Abraham that he would have many descendants.

@GRACE...I am not interested in your copied and pasted commentaries. You have been given a dozen verses and asked for your personal interpretation and keep refusing to answer. You have been asked to provide the verses you base once-saved on and you refuse to answer. If you dont know the Bible well enough to do the most basic things like offer your interpretation or provide the verses you base your beliefs on then why keep wasting everybody's time? You can act the fool all you want and tell people they dont understand or trust in Christ but it is pretty obvious who is the one that doesnt know what they are talking about it that is trying desperately to overcompensate with silly claims. let me know when you can do more than cut and paste
AND YOU have been given more than a dozen verses but you just ignore them. I will post whatever I want to post. I am not interested in anything you have to peddle either Catholic Boy. I tried to be civil to you but you are too devious to do anything but argue with someone who doesnt agree with the mighty Skumbolis.
Go ahead and be obedient as your Nun teacher forced you to be. That is NOT being obedient to the Law of Faith and IF you dont know what that means than look it up yourself.I can quote every scripture in the whole bible and you Still wont believe me. I am tired of discussing this with an arrogant prideful religious man who is here to stroke his own ego. Enjoy striving for something that God Offered freely.

<quoted text>Again you dont address the verses, offer interpretations, provide verses, etc. You just keep regurgitating your scripturally unsupported opinions. What about the Bible terrifies you so? Lets try again with your favorite Paul. If believers that keep in memory what they have been taught are saved, what happens to believers who dont keep it in memory? And who were the natural branches cut off for unbelief and who was warned make sure they dont get cut off later for unbelief? How many times can u duck this?
The Natural branch is Jesus. Those who are cut off is believers who (like You) want to continue in the OT covenant of law and reject the Grace that God has given us..Which is Jesus and HIS sacrificial death, burial and ressurection. You will be cut off just like those who Jesus told to depart for you left your first love..You dont TRUST that what Jesus done for you was enough..YOU can do better than He done. YOU can OBEY ALL the laws that NO man in History was capable of doing EXCEPT Jesus. SO, Its Believers like YOU who will find themselves cut off UNLESS you repent or Change your mind towards Christ. If you dont like this answer, Take it up with God. Those are His rules, NOT mine..If you know the Bible half as much as you claim you do, YOU will know this.

LOL...translation: "I still dont have any verses to back up my claims and I still wont offer any interpretations because no matter how many apologist commentaries I pull out of my backside none of them address the relevant scripture either" Just keep making silly accusations further exposing your ignorance. The law of faith? LOL..is that like obedience to faith? And I wasx civil back till I saw u were scamming me and never was going to answer despite your many accusations. You are a fraud

Abimelech: Philistine Royal Title.

The stories in Genesis 20 and 26 about Abimelech and the Hebrew patriarchs suggest to many scholars that Abimelech may not have been a personal name,but rather a royal title just as pharaoh was the title of Egyptian kings.Abimelech means My father is king.Whish supports this assumption.

It was a joke. You had twice apologized for making a mistake.
And dude, I thought by now you had gotten over your paranoia.
Somebody pissed in his oatmeal, and he has this need to make those that are not cristian imbibed appear less than decent humans, and not worthy of discussing anything about the bible or christian behavior towards their own or those that share this world with them as members of the human race.
That "holier than thou" attitude is setting the stage for the downfall of their religion and rightly so. They can't even get along and act decent to themselves. Folks that act like that aren't even worth your breath as a fellow human being. How much less worth are they to their god?

Hey Grace, what is 2 plus 2? 5 right? Is anybody that thinks it is four blinded by the devil?LOL....I can give interpretations of scripture because they back up my claims. You cant so you dont. And your claims of civility and calling other prideful is just more manipulative garbage from the most ignorant yet ikronically prideful person in here. Go sell it to someone else that thinks 2 plus 2 is 5

No wonder the church wouldn't allow them to even possess bibles until the Calvin abortion.
