Didn't Jesus teach in Matthew 5:18-19 that Old Testament law was still in effect?:
"For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
But Paul had a different idea in Romans 10:4:
"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness for every one who believes."
There is definitely differences in the OT & the NT...

***John8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.***

***John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.***

For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
What Paul is saying is that the days of being declared righteous just through the law are over and following the law but not depending on Christ doesn't save. One still must obey the commandments but without faith In Christ it means nothing. And Christ most certainly taught the way to be saved and to the Father was through Him
John 10
9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved
But why was it silly when Christians debate scripture yet you an an ex-Christian is here debating scripture?
We should debate the Scriptures... and I thought everyone knew JESUS came to us to teach us a new way of life :) A life of turning the other cheek and learning how to love one another....

Romans 3:21-22
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference.
__________

Okay. First, what must be established is what the "righteousness of God" is, according to the law. Righteousness, by "God," was according to two things. The first was by obedience to the law, of course. But, because Israel, at the time, was in a learning process, they were given a "fail-safe." And that was sacrifice. As long as Israel sacrificed, they were allowed to retain a righteous standing with Father as long as their sacrifice was offered in sincerity, acknowledging that the animal was dying in their place. After time, though, Israel began to rely more on sacrifice to maintain a righteous standing with Father instead of obedience to the law. And because of this, the most High vowed to take the literal performance of sacrifice from Israel, so that they couldn't rely on it any longer. They would be left with only obedience to the law for righteousness. It was explained, to them, that obedience to the law was preferred before sacrifice, but Israel ignored this.

Paul wrote that the wages of sin is death. The wages of obedience, or righteousness, then, would be life. Israel was only allowed to continue, to become the nation they became, because they were deemed righteous. But, by what? Obedience to the law, or sacrifice? As we read the history of Israel, it's obvious that Israel wasn't obedient to the law, so it must not have been by their obedience to the law. It must have been by sacrifice that they were allowed to continue. And this brings us to what Paul wrote.

"But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets," wrote Paul. The law, here, is the law of sacrifice. And the "witness" mentioned are the law and prophecies that warned Israel that the law of sacrifice would become fulfilled in Christ, so that they could no longer rely on the literal performance for a righteous standing. After Christ was crucified, Israel would have to show faith in his blood for this righteous standing including obedience to the original, moral law. This means that the initial intention of the law stands, but Israel no longer has sacrifice as a "fail-safe." Now, they have to learn to be obedient to the law. Israel could, no longer, ignore the law while depending on sacrifice, which they apparently began to rely on in order to appease "God," and not because they were sorry for their unrighteous behavior.

Romans 3:23-26
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Notice, if you will, that Paul wrote, "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past." This means that all our past sins are forgiven us. And that once we come to learn of Christ and what it was he accomplished for us, that we're to begin where all else have failed. Now we, like Israel, must obey the law, beginning with the righteous standing that we receive in Christ. Now, it's expected, like Israel, that we retain the righteous standing that we've been given. We must not take grace for granted and use our liberty for an occasion to the flesh, as this will be trampling under foot the Son of the most High's blood. In all of this, we must keep in remembrance, that Christ is the same yesterday, today, and for ever.

<quoted text>I think as I do because that what it seems, to me, that's implied when you say that once you're saved, you're always saved, with no chance of ever losing your salvation.
I understand that no one comes to Christ intending on continuing in willful sin, but to say it doesn't happen is utter foolishness, because it does. And it has. And when I call to remembrance those so-called "pastors" and "ministers" that got exposed in some sort of on-going scandal, just like the Roman Catholic hierarchy did, you and Grace Walker just sweep it under the rug, as if ignoring it makes it go away. Neither of you has answered my questions, though, as to whether these hypocrites will still be saved? My question was: If any of these hypocrites died before they got exposed and repented, would they still be saved? Keep in mind that up until the moment they got exposed, they preached every Sunday. They still led their congregations. They still claimed to have the Holy Spirit. They still claimed to be saved by the grace of "God." They still carried on no differently from any other time until they got exposed as a sinful hypocrite.
Interestingly, the "once saved, always saved" doctrine runs almost parallel with the "universalist's" views.
Now, you said, "I cannot see at all WHY they think that we (OSAS) feel that we have said ( a LIE) that we can do ANYTHING we want and still be saved! This is simply not true, and any of these people that have said we believe we can do anything we want and still be SAVED is a LIAR (this is blunt, but this is a fact!)"
Well, now we have an issue that needs be addressed.
If you don't feel that you can do anything and still be saved, then by what principles are you subject and under? I ask, because you would have to be subject to and under some sort of principles if you can't do anything and still be saved. And as to these principles, from where do they derive? From within yourself, or "God."
BLL, When we accept Jesus as our Saviour and BELIEVE, we will automatically repent of our Sins, we will WANT to repent and actually can't HELP it.

Jesus KNOWS our true HEART, and we are SAVED.

We OSAS believers do NOT say to ourselves,'I will do this sin, because Jesus already forgave me' we dont THINK that way.

Nor do we PREMEDITATE or PLAN to sin, knowing it is already forgiven-- NO, we don't. BUT if we do fall into a SINFUL act (unknowingly) God knows our HEART and he knows if we are sincere and even if we backslide for months, HE is with us, will carry us through our trials and tribulations.

I keep thinking of King David, he killed a man for this man's wife (murder) and a selfish murder, not out of DEFENSE, but a useless terrible MURDER. Yes, King David, was still a child of God, and was still SAVED, YES, King David did fall in deep remorse and deeply deeply repented.

What is meant by this OSAS belief is , that I feel some of you misunderstand is---- No matter what the SIN is that we do, we HAVE
God to turn too and say HELP!, please forgive me, I know not what I do!

We have Jesus within us to guide us and direct us, but HE still does not take away our FREE WILL. That free will gets us into the trouble we get into, but there is still the forgiveness of GOD.

HE will Always be with us, when we ASK Him into our Heart, and never leave us.

We don't even know some of the WORST man/woman in prison for terrible terrible crimes, we don't know their talks with God, and if their heart is right with God, even if they got executed--they may very well be sitting in Heaven when we get there.!

<quoted text>Forgive me for being so ignorant, but I have an issue with taking all that a person posts as literal. If you say "my salvation," I automatically assume you're inquiring about my salvation. My mistake.
<quoted text>When I refer to salvation as "mine," I'm referring to how I've held fast to the salvation that's been given me, and I made it mine. I, now, possess the salvation that's given me. You'll find the same type of references of ownership in the Psalms, by David (Psa 62:1, for one example), and the other prophets. We also read of similar possessive-references made by Paul, too, as he calls the gospel "my gospel (Rom 16:25 for one example)."
<quoted text>And I mean that. Salvation, itself, is firmly rooted. And as I said, whether anyone of us exists, or not, will have no bearing on salvation, itself. The fulfillment of salvation depends on no one, even a little bit. But, now, whether or not I'm worthy enough to receive His ultimate salvation will rest solely upon my faith. And my faith must be proven by righteousness. And my righteousness must not come from my own perceptions of righteousness and unrighteousness, but by the most High's, as His ways are higher than ours. There are expectations and stipulations that we must conform to. And if we don't.....
It's troublesome that you ignored that whole post, again. Troublesome, but quite revealing, as well. You should know that a refusal to answer is just as well an answer, too. Except, when you refuse to answer certainties, you're only leaving it open, for us, as to why you chose to utterly refuse to address what was set before you.
I do read your WHOLE post.

Most of your posts are of the SAME repeated beliefs that YOU have. That you can loose your salvation, that you have to work at being perfect, that their are expectations and conditions and stipulations, and on and on and on, to be SAVED in the end.

You also ADD words (your own ) in scriptures that are not there.

So, usually if I can pick out ONE thought process you have in a post, I can pretty well ANSWER the whole content of that post.

Less confusing to you that way.

Hello Brother, and agree;)

He's been at this for at least 3 1/2 yrs. now, starting on some of the early(pre "EndTimes") Camping threads. And, at that time the response was more stilted , mechanical..-'robotic'-if you will. I have reason to believe it's not one person, or at times not one at all...for another time.

Yet , as you, I see 'selective' "looking the other way" with some only as long as they support a position dear to another heart. Happens with both "Doctors". Have to wonder what it is with these "Doctors" , not only this thread but there are a few on some others(you may have run into them) who are just as, if not more, vulgar,crass and vile as anything displayed by ours here. All the while whistling "Onward Christian Soldier". Is sickening.

If nothing you do can cause you to lose your salvation how is that not the same as being able to do anything you want and still be saved?
Can you clarify then? If you don't believe you can do anything you want and still be saved, what are some of the things you can't do?
Christians do not feel that they can do anything they want to, period. Those feelings left us in the 'old man' we were.

We now (the new man in us) feel we have been Forgiven of our sins.
We don't want to do those bad things.

But IF we do, then we have the confidence that God forgave us even before we did it. He knows our Heart, our intentions.

I agree. But, you're making the case that ALL that believe in this "once saved, always saved" doctrine believe as you do. You're totally disregarding all that's written concerning the apostasy. We're warned to be aware of false, hypocritical teachers, not because they're so easy to detect, but because they're NOT so easy to detect. This is why we're warned that the so-called "ministers" of Satan appear as ministers of righteousness. But, we'll never expose these hypocrites if we don't know the expectations of the most High.

And having free-will, that's why it's a must we learn the spiritual interpretation of the commandments and how to apply them, and how to remove sin from our hearts. This is expected of us while we await his return. Christ taught us all these things.

Of course "God" knows we're going to miss the mark from time to time. And THAT's the reason for grace. Grace is given for those times of need. That's why it's written, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help IN TIME OF NEED."

Hi Skom,

How do you like the all this white stuff we're getting hit with lately. Me, yuck, not at all.

Love the phrase "What Would Jesus Do". I find myself thinking it often when my two (supposed grownups) get into it, often when I say it aloud it's seems like it's beginning to sink in.

Hope your job is still secure, I remember when I worked at GM way back when and worked second shift, it's rough. Wishing you a good evening and are looking forward to Super Bowl Sunday, that's all I'm hearing this past week.

Good to see you my friend.
