I realize you have very limited Bible references Sup but I am not treating you Abel! LOL<quoted text>
"...claiming I was saying man could earn His own salvation"
well let me go further to say that man cannot earn his keep in God either, which includes favor, sanctification, acceptance. answered prayer...etc.
i'm just baffled that you're opposing me for promoting Christ and His Sacrifice over our own efforts. it kinda reminds me of how Cain treated Abel.....
And you really think I am going to allow you to go full circle and take the original statement which you misunderstood to use as if it was said and start from the very beginning again when you have refused to answer any questions and continue to be dishonest both by what you say I have said and by refusing to give verses?
1) Why do you believe the teachings of Jesus Christ do not apply to the Gentiles when Jesus specifically said otherwise? That His disciples were to baptize all nations and ensure they obey His teachings and He said this AFTER the Sacrifice and Resurrection in Matthew 28:19-20? And when neither Jesus or Paul ever say this and in fact both say the opposite. Paul says you must obey the gospel of Christ and Jesus says He will send the Holy Spirit to remind us of all He has taught us.
2) And do you believe anything Jesus said about salvation applies to you?
That is where we left off. We have been stuck on these same questions for days now as you refuse to answer. Why that is has been painfully obvious. I guess when someone goes running around Topix telling people who is a "real Christian" and to read the words of Jesus direct from the gospels it would help if...well, you know...if they actually knew the gospels and followed them themselves. But hubris and religion are often intertwined unfortunately.
