Why do you think that I am vested in you? Because I respond to some of your posts?

But guy after guy has literally followed me to other rooms they respond to dozens of my posts although most of them I ignore for weeks or months at a time, they look for the little things in which they hope to be able to argue a point successfully, such as whether I technically saw someone post their post on Topix when I saw I have seen people make posts saying certain things and just etc, etc. Is it all because you feel you were embarrassed in front of your friends or came out the short end of a debate? Is it just pride?
Do you really want to know why I post to you the way I do? You won't like the answer.

Do you think I pick on you? I let most of your solecisms slide. Here's one to Happy Lesbo from eight posts above this one, at http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR... :

"Your dime-store psychology 101 inferring being self-centered lacks taking basic English grammar in the consideration of its conclusion."

It's not "inferring." It's "implying." Happy Lesbo implied, and you inferred.

I don't know any guys in real life that would be this fixated on another guy over something so trivial. So what is it I am not seeing that keeps causing this? Or is it just ego and there are just some very different kind of guys out there than I am used to?
I've already told you what I didn't like. And Happy Lesbo has given you the benefit of her perspective. You don't seem to be interested.

He chooses too- His mercy and grace also provide truths to the non believer that they do not like. He does not lie- and honors His biblical promises.

So you believe someone can have their sins forgiven yet that doesn't mean they are saved?
I have always felt the two went hand-in-hand
Do you mind me asking what you would base that on that "The passage is not teaching that everlasting life is based on our forgiving other people."if doing that results in the father forgiving our sins?
How can someone not be saved if the Father forgives their sins?
That's not what I said, nor did I imply it. I don't know how you deduced that from what I posted. In fact I said this, "Only when we are reborn and given a new life through the Holy Spirit by faith in Jesus are our sins forgiven."

<quoted text> Because my good doctor each of us are a battlefield for an on going spiritual war, that is why the Word tells us to put on the whole armor of God so that we may withstand the wiles of the devil and our faith in God is both our sword and our shield. You ask why would someone want to return to a life of sin?.........because as the saying goes.........the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, and if we don't use the weapons of prayer and faith and keep our focus on Christ and his Word we can lose our focus and gradually slip back into bad habits which can lead back into the things that we use to do that condemned our souls, regular fasting along with prayer and obedience are also effective weapons to keeping us strong in Christ, and also and perhaps most important of all is for a saint to stay up under the Word preached because the Word preached is food to our souls for us to grow on and stay strong just as natural food sustains the human body.
Peace.

Hey Scott,
I understand what you're relating. This is what I was referencing:
<quoted text>
So,according to the text who would we know 'by their fruit'?
'False prophets'
They would come in 'sheep's clothing'(intent disguised)but are 'ravenous wolves'(predators).
Do they come to reconcile , or divide? To bring comfort, or fear? Show love for the brethren , or contempt? Just my anecdotal take ,and more could be added but one 'gets the picture' I believe.
You take care and have a good night:)
Yesterday as I read about people and their fruits...I kept thinking...

Matthew 7:18
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

I think most would consider the other guy's fruit as the source of the fruit flies that were swarming about.

In your opinion...

Do you think that there should have been another verse or two...

Harvest your fruit before it becomes over ripe and falls to the ground.

For once it has fallen and left unattended becomes as the fruit that fell from the bad tree.

They both will attract the fruit fly.

On as side not...we all know how pesty and how difficult it is to get rid of those annoying little buggers!

Oh well...I started out to be serious but my mind just wouldn't go there.:-)

REVELATION Study Annex 2

Rev 1______/TTTTTTTTTTTTT\______Re v 2

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 - Okay, going to make a extremely long story short... concerning Gnosticism... the last thing I remember typing was that they believe that the Christian's God is the "demiurge", evil angel or the devil. That is, the God of the Old Testament.

A. Gnostics believe that the demiurge,(That is, God) was created and they believe that he is the lowest god with a whole bunch of gods and goddesses above him. They believe that place in which those higher gods dwell in is called "The Pleroma". Okay, real quickly... this is how the main story goes but it morphed this way and that over the milleniums:

(1) They believe that God was created by a goddess above Him called the lower-sophia. But before this, Lower Sophia was trying to get a hold of the Highest-ordered God who is known as The Unknown God (heard that before in Acts on Mars Hill?). Well, she couldn't get a hold of Him so out of anger (sometimes legend says curiousity) she created the demiurge but saw that it was a monster that she created (this is gnostic thought btw). So she was supposedly terrified of this monster and flung the demiurge (God) to the darkest and furtherest corners. Then as the gnostic myth goes, she put a barrier between her and the demiurge and that is why Jehovah thinks that He is the only God because He cannot see anything above Him. There's a whole heck of a lot more to this but in gnostic thought, Jesus and the demiurge (God) are supposedly enemies and Jesus came to save mankind FROM God. That only some men have the divine spark and these men who have that are supposedly those gnostics that believe all this. They believe that the Christian and Jewish God is only playing and torturing mankind.

B. Now probaly some "enlightened one" or "knower" (gnostic) will post and say that I don't know what I'm talking about to inject misinformation to keep you from the truth and that sort of thing could happen. But this is part of the main crux of christian gnosticism. Later on it divided into many different gnostic sects who had a slightly different spin on things. Most, except for one strict, ascetic gnostic sect (that I saw) believe that our God is the demiurge or devil. And one of the sects, the Nicolatians is most likely where the OSAS concept originated before it ever got to Calvin over a thousand years later. The Nicolatians, like most of the other gnostics, also believed in dualism... that is, that divine spark in them was good but since the demiurge created everything physical and everything physical was evil... then their bodies were also made of evil and it was okay to commit illicit, evil acts with the body since it was already evil.

So anyways, some key words you ought to research: Bythos, Pleroma, Aeons, Demiurge, Archons, lower-sophia, higher-sophia for those interested. Now some will also say that gnostics don't exist today but they do just like gnostic bibles exist today.

Anyways, gnosticism isn't of God and is more akin to witchcraft and platoism more than Christianity although they use some Christian concepts in their gnostic thought and writings. Some say that even Revelation is gnostic and that Paul himself was a gnostic. Actually, Apostle John and Apostle Paul had a very difficult time with their heresies and that is why they wrote their letters the way they did.

Have a good one.

Romans 4:14-16
For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.
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
__________
First, let me remind you of Paul's use of general terms in his letters. This is one of those times.
As we can see, the term "law" was used three times. And we can easily misinterpret this to mean the whole law. But, to understand if Paul was referring to the whole law or not, we need not look any further than the subject matter prior to the above verses.
Beginning at verse 9, we can see that Paul began discussing the law of circumcision. And it's the law of circumcision that Paul was referring to when he used the general term "law" in verses 14 through 16.
According to the law, only those circumcised on the eighth day could enter into the covenant of sacrifice. But, as Paul pointed out, the promises to Abraham were made to him even before he, himself, was circumcised. Therefore, the most High made a way to circumvent the law, by having the law of circumcision fulfilled in and by His son. By this circumvention, the Gentiles could also enter into the covenant of sacrifice without being circumcised. And this way, the Gentiles could also became heirs of what Christ's blood accomplished, just like those that were under the law of circumcision before then. And to note, according to the law, even if a stranger was circumcised, they still weren't allowed to enter the covenant of sacrifice. I might be wrong, but if memory serves me correctly, Exodus 29 and Leviticus 22 explains this prohibition. Now, as to this circumvention, this is why Paul wrote, "Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression."
When we read the original stipulations of the law of circumcision, the most High said, "And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant." Now, this might not be known, but to be "cut off," in this sense, means "to be destroyed." And this is the wrath Paul was referring to. But, when he wrote, just after this, "..for where no law is, there is no transgression," this is the circumvention I'm referring to.
As the law of circumcision was fulfilled in and by our anointed Savior, this opened a passageway for all people. So, now, even if a person wasn't circumcised, they could still enter into the new covenant of sacrifice because, all in all, the literal letter of the stipulation became null and void. If we can remember, the penalty of death was also fulfilled in and by our anointed Savior. But, now, all that was necessary was faith in what was accomplished on the cross. And in this sense, our faith is placed on the fact that through the shed blood of our anointed Savior, that all peoples, nations, tongues, and what-have-you, can enter into a covenant with the most High without being circumcised. To circumcise our sons would prove a lack of faith in this, in other words. And this is why Paul warned, "For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law." The "whole law," here includes animal sacrifice, all the precepts of the Sabbaths, the curses of the law, and pretty much all that's instructed under the authority of the Levitical, ceremonial laws.
In conclusion, Paul wasn't referring to the whole law in verses 14 through 16 of Romans 4. Paul was referring only to the law of circumcision.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Interesting. That makes sense. I don't agree with Paul's and your reasoning to get there but it makes sense.

I'd like to add that if anyone chooses to circumcise their son, or even themselves, for any reason other than to enter into a covenant with the most High, then go right ahead. Circumcision, within itself, is not sin, nor does it prove any lack of faith. Circumcision would only prove we lack faith if we choose to circumcise our sons, or ourselves, in order to enter into a covenant with the most High, as if the fact that the practice was fulfilled in His son isn't actually true.
Again, thank you for your time and consideration.
I agree. It is the difference between having a backyard barbeque and making an offering to Ba'El.

Out of fairness to IANS it is not like I see him ask and I think many of you in the group are the same. You need each other constantly propping each other up and using a gang mentality to attack people. It shows mental weakness to me.
