It sound absurd to the phaisees too but Jesus told this parable..There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said,'Son, go and work today in the vineyard.''I will not,' he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered,'I will, sir,' but he did not go.Which of the two did what his father willed" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
Notice that "Repent" once again means to change your mind toward BELIEF not a particular SIN? The prostitutes and the despised tax collectors went to heaven BEFORE the pharisees because of their self righteousness and judgemental attitude. That is NOT the will of God my friend. Though, you noticed they were ALL STILL going to heaven. And if you dont BELIEVE you will be forgiven, You are ABSOLUTLY right..
I don't want us to get back into any big thing but just had one quick question

If repentance, faith, and obedience all mean faith why wouldn't the Bible just say faith?

You say repentance isn't repenting for our sins but changing our mind towards faith

You say faith is faith

And you obedience means obedience to faith

I am not saying this sarcastically or argumentatively but just for clarification. You believe to repent, to believe, and to obey all means to have faith?

Yep. Compare:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." John 1
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said,“Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.5God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day." Genesis 1
Any other non-Christians here see what I do ?
I dont ever see what you see but I will look again..<smile> J/K

Let me see!!!!

In the beginning was the Word,( Jesus is refered to as the "Word")

The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." John 1

"I am the Light of the world" Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,...

Then God said,“Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. Hmmmm..LOL If this is what you see, then YES, I see it..
Thanks G

Edit..just a few verses about repenting for our sins and confessing our sins. Just food for thought. Have a good one

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Luke 13
1Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2Jesus answered,“Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

John 5:14
Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him,“See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.”

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

James 5:16
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Matt.6
[14] For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
[15] but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

<quoted text>There is definitely differences in the OT & the NT...

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.***
How's that little pug prince of yours today? I can identify with your animal posts. I never cease being amazed by my dogs.

I've told you that I have a puggle, which is a pug-beagle mix. The beagle part gives her a snout rather than a flat face. It also causes her to bay like a coyote at passing ambulances. She looks up and sings. Quite adorable. I do it with her, and she seems to understand. I also have a black lab who is as sweet and gentle as can be.

We have a new routine - we take them to the dog park four mornings a week, where they gambol and frolic with their canine friends - about twenty accompanied by about ten of us adults who also socialize.

First, the dogs run in large circles. Then we throw balls and the dogs fetch them. And then there is wrestling. Do not wear white to the dog park!

And don't forget a drool towel, either. I need to wear it on my shoulder on the ride home, as my lab, with her butt in the back seat and her head in my shoulder in the front is watching the traffic through the windshield. Although she's fairly dry on the ride up, by the time she's had her workout, it's drool city.

Thanks for that.

Yeah, I was a little behind when I posted the above, but have caught up since and saw those exchanges. Annie's too.

It's too bad. Happy Lesbo is a good teacher with a good mind and heart. So is Annie. I wish that I could be more like them, but I really have almost no patience for his type.

Skom threw away an opportunity, but I doubt that it was the first time, or will be the last.

No problem. You didn't address the issue at hand anyways.
It is something most Christians can't see. It's like accepting every excuse a cheating spouse makes even when you catch them in bed with the "other" partner.

"She was just giving me a massage"

"Oh, OK"

I like your inventiveness if not your logic.

So now the words God, Elohim, Jesus, word, Logos, Light, etc. are all the same and interchangeable.

LOL

As good as any other goofy apologetic.

Not sure why no one can take the Bible at its own word without changing their definitions.

"And then God made a poodle." Poodle is a code word for Billy which is also God, God created himself and to keep it clear for us the poodle looks like a donkey anmed Billy.
You have to be a believer to understand it though.

LOL
This what Christian apologetics looks like to a non-Christian.

Today's Prayer

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8). Thank you for your promises, Oh God! I want to draw closer to you, to feel your presence as never before. Fill me with reverence and awe and humbleness in your presence. Touch my soul and cover me in your joy and peace. Minister to me Lord, I pray. All praise and glory and honor be unto You. In the precious name of Jesus I come to you and trust in you, dear Lord. Amen.

Prime time with God

Grow up. This kind of thinking is a huge part of your failure here.

Here's some free advice worth more than your home: Excise this aspect of your thinking from the rest, and drop it from arms length into the diaper pail while holding your nose.

You're welcome!

Ahhh.... nice ~ I could envision your adventures, your description was so great!! Thanks for sharing, I too love animal stories as you know, and marvel at the ways we can communicate with them. They are wisdom by natural instinct :)

Prince Pugstar is going great guns, he will be 2 in a few months, and is maturing, albeit still very much the puppy. He loves playing games, and luckily I have a long hallway that I can 'bowl' his toys down, so he can go slipping and sliding on the parquetry floor, but can always manage a 'wheelie' if I toss it to the carpeted end :)

If I start making squeaky noises, he grabs one of his toys and we start playing his game ~ but usually he is the instigator!! I have had marvelous experiences with 3 Labradors, long stories to a degree, and in my first photo album, there is a pic of a golden Labrador that I had taken off of the calendar, at my first year at work. That pic is over 40 years old now,(I started work just before I turned 15, and was lucky enough to land on my feet with training) and although I never knew the doggy, I knew what the doggy represented :)

Glad you have so much fun with your pets ~ they give us much laughter and much to love and to live for!!
