Delayed his coming? He was gong to come sooner but changed his plans?

Your deity sure does change his mind a lot.

Or maybe he just doesn't exist.

That's okey dokey with me.

I understand that you share similar delusions.

But we both know that when Clownie says the wrong thing, you'll cast him down among the Sodomites too.

Most here understand that your deity's judgment is nothing more than your judgment.

Question: What if a believer does not remain faithful?
ANSWER

Notice the "If" that denotes conditional

1Corinthians 15:1-2
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, IF ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

QUESTION

Why have you still refused to give your interpretations of verses? You the words of Jesus make you so uncomfortable that you can't even talk about them? That is why I chose Paul for you to make it easier

Here are a few more by Paul

Romans 2:13
For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.

Romans 11:22
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, IF thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Paul says if even the natural branches (Jews) can be cut off that it is all the more important that Gentiles remain faithful

This is complicated stuff Dusty. You just have chosen to reject it. Back to Christ:

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.

Matthew 25
44"They also will answer,'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'45"He will reply,'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'46"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Edit Duststorm

Meant to say that is NOT complicated stuff

Hebrews 10:26-27
“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God

Hebrews 6:4-6
“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”

I don't post these verses to debate them. I would have liked to hear your interpretations. Maybe 3 years of silence has piqued my curiosity? However I provide them for you so you will be aware of them. What you do with them after that is up to you but you can't claim you were never shown them or were never told.

2 Timothy 4:1-5
4 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Sounds like Pauline Christianity was already losing members before the end of the first century.

Strange that Jesus never says so in your Bible.
strange too is that he never tells them to worship him in idolatry.

we should be dancing nataraja

1 Chronicles 15:29
And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the Lord came to the city of David, that Michal, the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in her heart.

Song of Solomon 2:8
The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

<quoted text>
Actually, Juicylu, the truth is that I will not be dealt with for my sins, and for that I am eternally grateful.
The Savior has already paid for my sins. I have received his pardon forever, since the day I repented at the age of 9.
God has thrown my sins into the deepest part of the ocean, as far as the east is from the west.
I only hope that he will save you and grant you that perfect pardon.
No such promise was made for future sins. There is only one verse in the entire Bible someone could even attempt to twist to even suggest it and that is the verse that says there is no condemnation for those IN CHRIST. But what does it mean to be IN CHRIST?

Why not let Christ tell you?

JOHN 15

"3You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

6If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

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."

That all your future sins are forgiven is a false teaching and has no biblical basis. It contradicts dozens of verses, all of the teachings of Christ and even most of what Paul taught. Christ did not die on the Cross to give you a free pass to sin in the future. Why would He do that? He hates sin. Believers were punished all the time because they lived in sin. Jesus told people go and sin no more. He told them be perfect as the Father in Heaven is perfect. This is what was thought about sinning after receiving the truth

1 John 3:8–9
8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.

And yes you can still be forgiven but by no means are your future sins already purged. I know it feels good to think that. Who wouldn't want total immunity and to act with impunity? Unfortunately Jesus said nothing of the sort
