Yep
Probably right to Facebook would be my guess
If the gossip there is like I have been told it makes the rebukes all the more hypocritical. Trust I have seen some of it firsthand. What they really mean is don't air your dirty longer and whisper behind people's back. If you do it on the thread it interrupts them talking about pies. And when someone can rebuke someone for how they respond to being called of the devil and blinded byGod and claim its them who reacts poorly to others not believing as they do, well lets just say I don't put much stock in the rebukes any longer.
Good to see ya Lawest

Good evening Steve, I hesr what you are saying and understand as I too have witnessed the incredible double standards up close and from people whom I hsve respected at one time, but now some of them stand on friendships over God's truth regardless of how much in error their friends are, snd it makes me sick.

That is so very wrong in what you say. You honestly think that? A terrible attitude for supposedly a Christian that you say you are!

A very ignorant way of looking at 'once saved always saved'

A true child of God,would not want to be nasty and abrasive to anyone.

Just because OSAS believers are CONFIDENT in their salvation with Jesus Christ, we think we can act anyway we want ????? NO, we don't feel this way, Lawless.

A Christian is standing up for RIGHTEOUSNESS, doing what is right in the site of God.

Jesus said,I am the way and the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father except through me.
If you really knew me you would know my Father as well.From now on you do know him and have seen him.Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.

I do not at all see what you mean here,'notce all the IF"S???
John 3:16 was what I was elaborating to the answer to your other post, you were making statements of't NOT have any IFS in that verse, like ...
IF you are obedient, IF you do good works, IF you remain PERFECT, NO! it does not , just says 'For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, and whosoever BELIEVTH in H (Jesus) will have everlasting life" JUST BELIEVE in Jesus.
You do seem to overlook that verse!
It says exactly that, no one could comprehend that statement any different .
If the Bible consisted of one verse you would be right. Yes that verse explains how one becomes saved. Does it say anything about repentence or the Holy Spirit or being born-again? Yet those are needed. Just like after one receives the promise to be saved they must remain In Christ by being faithful and obedient. How do you harmonize John 3;16 with the verses I posted or do u feel the other verses dont matter?

<quoted text>QUESTION: Are your questions based on personal studies of the bible, or beliefs that you've heard from the "average" believer?
Both and all. This thread is a perfect example of the mountain of conflict involved. Why, is there an "expert" believer? Even that would not suffice. I would prefer to talk to the horse's mouth, rather than the other end.
In lieu of that option, one can only read the item(s) and apply knowledge and common sense...something I have noticed is often supplanted by willful ignorance and narcissistic arrogance.

Ya mean no more condemn'n folks?
With all due respect you are missing the point. The emphasis is not to threaten ppl with hell or take a fire and brimestone line. Ppl should obey out of love and because it is the right thing to do, not because of rewards or punishments. The reason myself and others argue against OSAS doctrine it is espouses after literally as little as perhaps a minutes of belief one could technically spend the rest of their life murdering and rapikng and they would still be saved. Just because most OSAS believers wouldnt use it as a free pass to sin doesnt lesson the responsibility those who disagree with it feel to show the free pass doesnt exist whether someone uses it or not. We remain responsible for our actions.a guy in this room once said if someone killed a bunch of innocent ppl then himself and he was a believer hed be in heaven and is victims if unbelievers would be in hell. Thats why we argue against OSAS

First, does your definition of a "true child of 'God'" equate to that that's written? And have you ever considered that just because a "true child of 'God'" wouldn't want to be nasty and abrasive to anyone, that that doesn't mean they won't be, or aren't?

Without the law, how do you discern between righteousness and unrighteousness? Without the law, how do you know what's right in the sight of "God"?

Here's a question for you...

A very attractive married person invites you to their house after telling you that their spouse is out of town for the weekend, and makes it known that they wish to have relations with you. Do you go, or not? If "Yes," why? If "No," why not?

When he finished washing their feet he put on his clothes and returned to his place.Do you understand what I have done for you.He asked them.You call me Teacher and Lord and rightly so for that is what I am.Now that I your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet you also should wash one another's feet.I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.I tell you the truth no servant is greater than the master nor messenger greater then the one who sent him.Now that you know theses things you will be blessed if you do them.

I just want to make sure the truth gets out there. As long as heresy is shouted from the rooftops, I'll be there to shout louder! hehe
Its ironic i have had better biblical discussions with those outside the faith even if the debate or discussion ends with us still disagreeing. People will present their sides and calmly explain why they feel how they do, what verses they base it on, and what verses they think may show another view is not correct. Sometimes people even concede two possibilities or even see something diff. I have changed a few beliefs over my years on Topix and some major ones. many in the faith i have found wont look at other verses and continue to get more accusatory until they start telling u that u dont trust in Christ and are blind and etc. But they wont exchange in an honest reciprocal exchange. And when their accusations lead to the conversation devolving their friends with the same beliefs show up to rebuke the response. It is what it is (T) PEACE

ROMANS 3:21 NLT

But "NOW" God has shown US a way to be made RIGHT with HIM "without" keeping the requirements of the LAW, as was "promised" in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
But NOW the "righteousness" of God WITHOUT the LAW is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

The ONLY way we can be made righteous is THROUGH Jesus Christ..It does NOT get any clearer than this..We are made righteous without the LAW.IF you dont believe this, you are calling God a liar. He was the One who promised this!!

ROMANS 3:22...We are made "RIGHT" with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. "And this is true for everyone who believes", no matter who we are.

On the flipside of this..I you DONT believe this..you are NOT right with God according to GOD

It has always been this way. some of the ppl who would rebuke me or RA for responding the Jaws 1 out of 20 times couldnt make it themselves more than like 2 or 3 of his posts without responding. He just rarely focused on anyone but John and myself. Just like I have seen ppl regularly turn a blind eye if it is a friend or someone with like beliefs. Are there times i come down harder on ppl I dont like? Of course. I just am not in denial about that. People like to see themselves as very r8ighteous but could never live up to the standards they expect of others.And again that may be true for me at times too..and I admit that. It is the hypocrisy i find sickening more than anything and I guarantee if tmails and private chats were publically accessible most these ppl would never rebuke again(T) peace

ROMANS 4:14..King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

For if THEY which are of the LAW be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

IF YOU ARE UNDER THE LAW..YOUR FAITH IS MADE "VOID" AND THE "PROMISES" OF GOD IS NO EFFECT.

That is a frightning thought for you who are tryng to obtain your righteousness through your obedience to the LAW..

The thing is..Under Grace, we uphold the law, we just know that we wont be judged by it..We are judged by Gods Grace and Mercy because we are righteous in the eyes of God THROUGH Jesus Christ..

Romans 4:16..
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

Therefore it is of FAITH, that it might be by GRACE; to the end the promise might be "SURE" to all the seed; NOT to that only which is of the LAW, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

THE END OF THE "PROMISE" MIGHT BE "SURE"..Its of faith and GRACE..ONLY..THATS WHAT MAKES IT SURE!!!!!!! Thats WHY we are SO Confident..

I do know Skom that there are more than ONE verse in the Bible.(you can stop the belittling)

There are many verses that speaks of Repentance , Holy Spirit,and Born agai

You are severly bad about putting words in people mouths, or in this case post, like when you said 'Or do you feel other verses doesn't matter? Skom, All the Bible verses matter to me and to most all Christians, so don't go there!

John 3:16 is a statement actually meant for AFTER you have accepted Jesus and have been born again, because you HAVE BELIEVETH on the Lord Jesus Christ,giving us confidence in havig everlasting life.

It also could be a FACT for BEFORE you are saved, meaning that when you BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ you WILL HAVE ever lasting life, you will then WANT to repent and accept Jesus into your heart.

It also shows to the READER (or maybe a non - believer, that is becoming interested) of the Bible that you MUST go through Jesus Christ to be SAVED. He is our Salvation. That is the only way.

When you BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ you will go through a lot of changes , the OLD man is gone and you put on a NEW -- YOU,- automatically. It just happens.

Obviously not. It's Christian hate speech that makes the lives of gay people more difficult and more dangerous. You really deserve to have that done to you. It might make you a better person.

Look at women, long legs, soft skin, long eye lashes, full soft lips, curves in all the right places, melodic voices, small soft hands, beautiful feet to massage. I mean, only a loon from hell would probably argue that women weren't made for men.
Women are for the people attracted to them, which includes straight men, bisexuals, and lesbian women.
