Now you know the very fact is, I have asked you over and over most basic of questions such as this, are we born dead in sins? Eph 2:1. Rom. 3:10-12
I asked you do yoou believe the work of being [born again] is ALL the work of God or the work of man? You said it is ALL the work of God. However, your actions say it is all the work of man thus you void out the spirit of grace. We cannt have it both ways Lee either salvation is all of grace or all the work of man we cannot mix grace with works and this is just what your trying to do Lee.
Now I have tried to assisit you the best I can I have shown you your error when being [born again] is ALL the work of God in becoming saved this is what happens when one is born again Lee. As you rightly said, it is ALL the work of God in your past posts.
So Lee, if anyone is showing confusion here it is with your own comments I am sorry to say, how can I go any further when you do not deal with these most basic questions? I am trying to help you see the error in your conclusion you see it then you draw back on your conclusion because it gives God all the glory in the work of being [BORN AGAIN] Lee, if your not sure about this and your being tossed to and fro like a wave then please ask and I will be glad to help.
I will go back to the basic question again with you. Lee, do you believe being [born again] is ALL the work of God or the work of man?
Lee, you told me it was ALL the work of God do you still hold to this? You see this is what makes all this so confusing here. Thank you for your input. Gary. 1 John 3:13-15
<quoted text>And as many times I correct you when you make such statements, it amazes me that you'll never address my assertions to show how I'm in error, but you'll continue to repeat the same things I continue to correct. Unbelievable.
Yes, I say "Paul" and "Peter," because regardless of the inspiration, these were still the authors. How do you reconcile 1Corinthians 7:12. This verse begins with Paul writing, "But to the rest speak I, not the Lord..." And how do you reconcile what's written at 2Corinthians 11:17? This says, "That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting." So you understand better what Paul was saying in this verse, the "Aramaic Bible in Plain English" words it as such: "Everything that I speak, it is not by our Lord that I speak, but as in folly on this occasion of boasting."
How do reconcile these verses, Gary? But, regardless of whether it was Paul, Peter, or Father, people were still instructed to be diligent, to make their calling and election sure, if they wanted to. And once again, Gary...
For the PROPHECY came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
Prophecy, Gary. Not law. Not psalm. Not proverb. Not scripture. Not verse. Not gospel. Not epistle. Not letter. Prophecy, Gary. Prophecy. Now, I wonder how long it will be before you quote this verse again and erroneously exchange the term "prophecy" for "scripture"?
<quoted text>So far, I asked how you reconcile 1Corinthians 7:12 and 2Corinthians 11:17. Now, I'm asking how you reconcile Matthew 19:18? This says, "[Yahowshua] saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so." Now, are you telling me that our anointed Savior didn't know better than to give credit to Moses and not his own Father?!
<quoted text>So, was it Father, or Paul, that wrote to Timothy; "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine"? You're not picking and choosing what you'll adhere to and what not, are you?
<quoted text>I call the bible the "word of 'God'," too, Gary.
