True, non-belief would also preclude belief in heresy.Hi Waste:
If one does not believe anything in the Bible then really nothing is [heresy]
You know Wsate there is nothing I can do to make one see truth or just how wrong the path they are on. God the Holy Spirit must make His word real to a person I cannot do this no matter what I share the people of Israel did not believe in God even when they seen the great miricles by the hand of Moses as God was working through him they could not enter into the promise land because of unbelief so no matter what anyone tells you, shows you it is impossible to believe unless God gives one the faith to believe and we know faith is a gift of God least any man should boast, Eph. 2:8-9
Take for example, some things you may agree upon I don't know. Some of the laws that are coming into effect and already has as abortion same sex marriage and so on. These laws are against God's laws so who will we believe? Will we believe what God tells us in His word or will we just go along with the majority? I believe personally this nation is going in the wrong diriction like never before America is not what it used to be sad, so sad to say. America was hit in 911 and out of fear what was the three words used? Yes,they were [God bless America] that is odd since the destruction and all that took place why would they say such a thing? You see what they were really feeling was this, and they did not know it by saying those words it was like them saying, God is still blessing America is He not? You see this made them question their own nation. Now we can see some of the laws that are coming into effect are really going to be the down fall of America sad to say. I see no turning around from there wicked ways when God calls it a sin or an abomination we can rest assure this is what this is. I pray for America and the leaders in Congress, the Senate, judges, the President, and such that this nation will come back to the first prinicples that it stood for. I am saddened by what is taking place and I cannot prove to them that they are wrong the reason being they do not hold to the devine standard that our for-fathers held that is the Bible. I aslo know God is in complete control He raises up kings and He brings them down. We as a nation is soon ripe for judgment by God if they continue down these paths.
Now many people knows what this nation is allowing to take place will be the ruin of this nation some people can see this while others are saying peace and safety.
Waste, when it comes to spiritual matters one will never see or understand spiritual truth unless God makes it real to them I cannot do this all that the believers are to do is faithfully to declare the gospel we are called to be a wittness that is it. We do not force moral laws on one it has to come to the convictions of the person it is all a very private thing between you and God. No matter what happens in this nation God will have the final word. For the true believer this is not his home he is just passing through in the mean time we can leave our mark by faithfully declaring God's word this is what will truly last as the word declares. Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall never pass away. The true believer also hopes for the very best for all and wishes no ill on anyone if he is truly saved he will be Christ like in his speach and his actions. Thank you for your input. Gary. 1 John 3:13-15.
To make on see truth is subjective. It assumes the speaker has knowledge of the truth. Is it possible to fully comprehend the truth? What is truth?
If God gives one the ability to belief, then isn't such an action conditional rather than unconditional?
No, such laws are not against God's law at all. You are assuming you know God's law which is impossible. If God made homosexuals, then God must have done so for a reason. There is nothing in the Bible which precludes commited same sex relationships.
