"Souls to save"? Funny, that was a joke, right? You have no power to save anyone's soul. You can attempt to "win" someone to point them to Christ, but the Holy Spirit must do the work of salvation.
The term “soul-winning” simply refers to the practice of trying to lead lost sinners and God's chosen to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Such is the wonder, or more aptly blunder of "religion". It gives itself more power that it has been given. That is the power of God that man attempts to hijack in the name of the Lord.
Hey Janitor dude I've met in my travels :D why so grumpy? You know what she means...I thought you were a Christian? Why come diss Angels here? Soul saving, soul winning, what's the hubbub? Our sister in Christ knows she's not saving souls herself. Has hanging out with the pro choicers made you angry? Chill.

Mark 12:29-31
"The most important one", answered Jesus, "is this:'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'. The second is this:'Love your neighbour as yourself'. There is no commandment greater than these".

Besides, she was talking to someone who knows what she means. We're peaceful here. Take a deep breath and relax, put your feet up, stay a while...
Many Blessings <3

Yes J, It was meant to be funny. You see, that's what happens when you intercept an ongoing conversation that I am having with another. I can win souls over through God's might Power, and only God's Mighty Power. I'm sure you know the verse... Judge, less ye be Judged! SL

And, before the "restoration" , was there national repentance? In other words, was this sanctioned by God...or man?

God already knows whose souls He will save. There's nothing you can do about it one way or another. Most of those that believe they can just drive others further away, even those that were already believers.
All Jesus asked of believers was to spread the Word and share the Gospel. No more, no less.
why do xians pretend to know the mind of god?

keep pushing that broom janitor,.its what you do best no doubt ...LOL

It's ok 'Angel', could be still researching your answer...

In the mean time , maybe you could share a little of your theological background, such as did you grow up as a believer(saved in youth) in a Christian home, type of church attended; or did you grow up a 'nominal' Christian (in name only...CINO) and come to know salvation later in life. I ask only that it helps to better formulate answers in such a discussion.

I'll reciprocate in kind if you so desire:)

Thanks...

Hello Janitor, pleasure,

I can agree that wording certain Christian concepts can be 'misconstrued' not only by an unbeliever, but also by a believer of a different denomination in some cases. I like you are taken aback when I see a phrase - "I'm out savin' souls.." or the like- knowing that it's only "by the Spirit". I have found that most who use such phraseology are implying they're engaging in the "Great Commission" and can't actually 'save a soul', much less a flea, themselves...but lead others to the Master.

Now , if one continually "places the trumpet to the lips" to alert all in hearing(in this case -reading) distance what they're up to, they've already "received they're reward". Not implying that's what SL is doing, just extending the thought.

BTW, I once saw a "janitor" who grey boxed a while ago , on such threads as WINLAC (Why I'm No Longer A Christian),are you he, now registered?

Hello Senecus. O.K. I know what YOU are saying and I agree. There is such a mixed audience that read posts, that turning God and His Word into cartoons and fairy tales and angels with wings is very misleading to many. We need to take care to not further pollute >religion<. I respect the beliefs of all religions as much as possible. It is up to God to decide who may be on the right or the left and who is given the pass key to the kingdom.
No, I never grey box, and had never seen anyone else use this name. Juicy asked me how I came up with it. It happened when I was posting under another registered identity and being mocked for my beliefs by a non-believer. They said they were the Lord's Janitor and would sweep me away or something to that effect. I asked him if I could use the name and he told me he wasn't going to use it. He got banned like the next day for other reasons, so later on I decided to use it. Can't use an apostrophe in a moniker, and I didn't want "Lords" so I transposed it a bit. I don't believe in grey boxing for any reason ever. It tends to cause many problems.
And no, I don't post on Top Story Forums normally, and certainly not on the thread you refer to, but was looking for a new outlet where I might find some peace and true debate instead of troll battles. I don't mean to come off as rude, but it rubs me wrong when I hear mortals seemingly claim a power that is not intended for them.
Thank you for your unbiased insight. I will try to be less reactionary.
Thanks for the well thought out and measured response, Janitor, I truly appreciate it! I understand fully wanting to find some peace and intelligent debate, much of 'Topixland' is found wanting, believe me, been around various threads for 4 yrs. now, but did 'grey box' for about a year,off and on. Thought registering would give me some 'street cred', yet found so many have multiple profiles (Mods included) that it really doesn't matter much in that regard.

And I hear you , in 'mixed company' best to keep it "yea and amen". It's why I don't write of certain areas, such as eschatology, where I know my views may be different from many present and 'upset sensibilities' of some , and any debate goes south with emotional reactions. Being this thread though is about such I would make an exception.

That thread I mentioned (WINLAC) you might like to visit if you wish to "clean up" Christianity, some 'believers' posting there are more vile than the atheists.

Sad that.

You have a good night.
