<quoted text>They are fighting their own instincts
Hello Serah, thanks for the reply.

"Instincts"?,....at some point instinct would calm down, kinda like hearing thunder for the first time.

If a GOD is real and that GOD created people, the calming effect should come natural.

<quoted text>You just contradicted yourself according to the questions I asked.
Just tonight, I asked you if any of the religious leaders that got caught in some ongoing sin died before they had the opportunity to repent, if they would still be saved and granted everlasting life in "God's" kingdom, and you answered "Yes." That means that there is no consequence, for if there was, then they wouldn't still be saved and granted everlasting life.
<quoted text>Of a surety, but that's not what I asked. Now, you avoiding my question by changing what I asked. If these hypocritical religious leaders died before they could repent, then would it even matter if "God" disciplined them or not?
Just tonight, I had to scold my 5-year old son for putting his bare feet on the furniture. 5 minutes later, I had to scold him again for the same exact thing.
And have you ever heard of children that were taken out of a will?
<quoted text>My story is MY story, but we can't just foolishly believe that all are as fortunate. Yes, I'm a prodigal son, but are all as fortunate as me? Nevertheless and again, I thank "God" that I didn't die, and that I had the opportunity to repent before I died. Because I don't believe I would have been forgiven, saved, and granted everlasting life, had I died before repenting.
That sounds like a doctrine invented by Satan, himself. "Try, but don't worry. Even if you fall away completely and die without ever repenting, you're guaranteed anyway." That, to me, sounds absurd!
BLL, you are really bad about taking things nd TWISTING them.

First off, God will discipline ALL of us. God will discipline
His children in Christ. God shows no favoritism.

Just because we believe that once we have accepted Christ as our Saviour, and we believe we will never LOOSE it, does not mean God will not discipline His children (us) if we SIN, HE WILL!

If you are have accepted Christ as your Saviour, and you sinned and you DIED right after this Sin you did , you would still be SAVED, now we don't KNOW how God handled that DISCIPLINE after we
died--- Do you?.

So your saying , if YOU had died while you were 'BACKSLIDING
you wouldn't have been SAVED? Am I right? Please tell me.

Hmmmm-..Just a few minutes ago at FB...I learned I may now UNDERSTAND a lot more... regarding Gods GRACE- because by the standards set....we can not accept all that being His calls for... we do not do all that He requests-
BUT He will know our hearts and accept us anyways- NOT because we did every thing alllllllll correctly or near right- but because our hearts were in the right place- and we tried. Wait- I guess I understand His MERCY more too.
I hope that you will know these things (((((Mike)))))))).
He loves us as is- but much to much to leave us this way.
Hello Truths, thanks.

"Salvation" is a gift you don't need to do anything for it...it was givin before creation if the "good" book is correct.

"Grace" is towards all creation.

Good morning
These are indeed good scriptures.
I truly believe that 'Correction to our siblings in Christ, is
taken totally different than our everyday 'friends would be.
The one being corrected (spiritually) feels that it is that persons interpretation of how he is SINNING, and he may not feel he is SINNING, and that you are stepping in where you shouldn't, or that you have a better than thou attitude, so you better be perfect before you tell me too, is the way that some would look at it.(?) Dunno, but Spiritual correction
is a very very sensitive area.
There is a difference in conversing (debating) on the Bible and stating your beliefs , and conversig with someone that have different beliefs on the same topic, this is not CORRECTING someone, it is simply debating, as we are doing on this OSAS.
If you do see a sibling in Christ , and you indeed know they are sinning, or that they are being rude, and what appears to be mean and bullyig to others, then yes,
I feel you could say to them 'you are not showing the Christ in you to others with your attitude ,and I know that Christ is in you, is something bothering you?.
I agree...I would think that some are better at it than others...maybe one could consider it one of those God given gifts...The Gift of Rebuking!

I don't know...but I see where there is a fine line of "rebuking" in the name of God and "rebuking" to fulfill some "ego" need withing the "rebuker".

LOL If all of that made any sense!

I have had some explain it too me that you are forgiven but it influences the amount and type of rewards that you receive once in heaven.

IOW...behavior =# of rewards

I am not sure what biblical passages that they were basing their beliefs upon.
Yikes. It's like a Green Stamps redemption center up there.

REVELATION Study

I. Rev 1:11 Part 11 Cont 2 (bridged with Rev 2:10)

Rev 1______/TTTTTTTTTTTTT\______Re v 2

II. Jesus: "Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, THE DEVIL will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rev 2:10

**********

1. The Devil - A little while after I came to this thread, there were a few gnostics on here who would challenge my own Christian beliefs. I didn't know very much about what the gnostics believed at the time except that they believed in the Gnostic gospels of Thomas, of Judas and an assortment of gnosticsy that didn't make it into the Bible as we know it today... in fact, they shied away from being called "gnostics" and wouldn't even tell me what term they actually would call themselves. Okay, none of my bee's wax... I get that. But one would say that he was brought up Catholic... Irish Catholic I believe it was.

So this went on an on for about a year until I finally had the wherewithal and decided to look up what they actually believed. I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time on this subject because I already did a 2 week study on it and shared it in here back in 2011. But to make a long story short... their beliefs are about mythological cosmology more than anything.

Simon Magus, the sorcerer who is mentioned in the book of Acts who "supposedly" got saved... well, he is credited with starting the Christian version of gnosticism. Gnosticism actually existed before Jesus came onto the scene. Their was a pagan brand of gnosticism and a Jewish version of it... gnosticism simply grafted itself into the beliefs of the day. Platoism is a good example of that when it comes to the Greek side of things. So anyways, Simon Magus was a Sorcerer... a witch... same difference. Witches also have their pantheons of gods and goddesses... and other mythological beings. As an example, Americans who had to study Greek Mythology in school know these gods/goddesses to be Artemis... Apollo... Zeus.. yadda, yadda. Normally, we wouldn't view these as being part of witchcraft but simply mythology. Well, this is actually some of the gods that some witches worship... their names had changed throughout the course of history... like, the pagan goddess Ashteroth whose name afterwards became Ishtar (where we get the name Easter)... the worship of Ashteroth and other idols is what kept getting the Israelites in trouble with God... Hekate is another one but in Egypt mythology she was known as Heqet... she was know as the Queen of the witches. This is not even the tip of the iceburg in the many pantheons but I'm letting you know this so you will understand that witches aren't just about riding a broomstick, alchemy and black cauldrons. Oh, and when a witch become a Christian... it takes a whole lot and a bag of chips to shake them away from witchcraft. Because witchcraft has a very stronghold on those who were in witchcraft... deep down they still long for what they sometimes call the beauty of it.
