<quoted text>How would you know that Viking has received warnings or that he got banned?
Everybody knows you didn't always speak in broken English. Everybody knows you use socks. Most people assume you used to be another regular in here. You may even play games in unison with someone else. But one thing is certain. And that is you would have no way to know Viking has been warned. You would have no way to know Viking has been banned.
But if it is any consolation, what difference could it possibly make? How could anyone think less of you (two)than they already do? Enjoy talking to your socks
I was told when he threatened me, that he was notorious for bouncing his locations around, and being other people on topix. I was also told he was much smarter than what he acted. the person who told me, evidently had lots of experience with him for quite awhile. I took him at his word, he seemed to be a good Christian man, that didn't argue, but simply made his point to others without belittling anyone. It is quite obvious that most of shrinks writings, you can tell somewhere in his posts that it is shrinky... As far as "Le Le goes, if she is the same person whom I met on another site quite long ago, I don't think she liked me very well...I didn't fit up to her standards. Might be another person tho, I would imagine, there are many people in this big world, with the same names, but can tell them apart by their writings...

No, wait, the Jesus! story is far, far less reliable.
The background check she did was obviously done by a bunch of liars as well. She should sue them for fraud. LOL

Hint to all:
Do a background check on ANYONE you are getting into an on-line relationship with.

I really don't care who knows who I am. In fact, I am very proud of who I am.

Oh no, no, no, that couldn't have been Le le you met. Our Le le would NEVER judge another..........

You should be ashamed that a dyslexic with Asperger's did more with his life than you did.

Yes, I'll rub lying, whining loser's noses in it all day long.
Don't like it then do something with your life.

You are clueless.
"what new agers say about the teachings of Jesus vs what He actually says mixes about as well as oil and water."
- New Agers? I don't think so.
- What "He actually said" is under speculation. For the gospels are all second hand sources and unconfirmed if Jesus actually said what is written. It is like all documents that have a "Jesus" phrase in it - all are unconfirmed reports of his teachings.
But that really doesn't matter if one were to follow Jesus. They would accept all of what he taught and not just the ones that certain men chose for others to believe.
This is the direct semantic that all of Christianity refuses to acknowledge.
How is it that you only can believe in a portion of someone and throw out any otehr teaching that tehy may have initiated?
one MAJOR proplem that i have with the idea that the Bible has been very vulnerable to corruption and that other sources are more trustworthy, is simply the LACK OF FAITH in God Who is more than capable and faithful to preserve His Word to every generation.

NO ONE will ever be able to persuade me otherwise, and quite frankly it's definitely a sinister plan to try and do so!;-)

Believers still need a savior because no man can save himself
Christ promises the gift of salvation to those who remain obedient and faithful. Those things by themselves still could not save us. But He will have mercy on those remain in Him
I absolutely believe in following the totality of the scriptures. But by definition that requires we include ALL he scripture.
It is a simple question, one that does not require all the scripture you chose not to discuss with me. It is simply, do you believe Christ will bestow his mercy upon those who do not remain faithful and obedient?
Consider it a rhetorical question as I believe we have reached an impasse. Without examining scripture, there is no way to continue further. But some say obedience and faith is guaranteed once someone believes and people who left the faith must not have ever believed. Christin His infinite wisdom knew to address this.
Luke 8:13
They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
Matthew 24:11-13
and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
But we each must walk our own path. To each their own.
you're not giving me any benefit of doubt here, pal, but you've just become a bible quoting parrot - a sounding brass and clanging cymbal, if you will.

are you by chance a jehovah witness, seventh day adventist or anything else weird that i should know about?

i must be slipping but usually i discern those things after just 1 or 2 posts:-)

Actually Ben, I've been pretty succesful for a HS dropout with severe social anxiety.........

I'm just not as insecure as you that I have to remind everyone of my accomplishments daily and run others down at a constant in order for me to feel good about myself or my accomplishments.

Yes, your very proud of yourself, and I am at comfort with myself..........

after posting, i thought i might take a stab and try to work with you a lil bit, but in the future if you want me to answer questions or comment on a passage, could you please keep it to 1 or at most 2? i honestly don't have the time nor patience to cover EVERY subject there is in 1 post:)

you said "It is a simple question, one that does not require all the scripture you chose not to discuss with me. It is simply, do you believe Christ will bestow his mercy upon those who do not remain faithful and obedient?"

i have a question in return to you - taking into consideration the whole of scripture, basically summed-up by Jesus when He said "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me"; what do YOU think it means to "remain faithful and obedient" to Jesus?

i.e., what faithfulness and obedience was required by the Jews to be bypassed by the angel of death when they were in egypt other than putting the passover blood on their doorposts?

<quoted text>I was going to end this but didn't see these posts. You are taking that verse out of context brother. I don't know if that is why you did not site it. But please look at the verse right before it:
John 6
28 Then they asked him,“What must we do to do the works God requires?”
29 Jesus answered,“The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
What must WE DO to do the works God requires? We are to believe in him. This addresses the need for faith. John goes on to address the need for obedience..
John 15
10If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
You have stated you are already perfect in Christ. But to be IN CHRIST one must be faithful and obeident
dude - don't call me your brother if you're not gonna give me any benefit of doubt and continuously tell me i'm wrong, okay?

this same john and Jesus that you quoted goes on to tell us repeadedly what the 'new' commandments are that we're to keep; to love one and other "AS I HAVE LOVED YOU", i.e., from the same Spirit and the same gift of love and forgiveness that we get from God. "we love Him BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US" 1 john
