HAVING BROACHED THIS ABOVE SUBJECT BEFORE...
ON..... THE ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL LIFE WITH CHRIST...
ONE THAT IS A PART OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC
EACH TIME I HAVE BROUGHT THE SUBJECT UP...
THE SILENCE HAS BEEN DEAFENING ...
IF THERE IS NO ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL LIFE WITH CHRIST AFTER DEATH....
WHY DO YO ROMAN CATHOLICS .... GO TO SUCH LENGTH TO DEFEND A RELIGION THAT IS A DEAD END STREET?
A real BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN ...-->.has this promise...
Joh 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
-->NOTE JESUS WAS LIFTED UP ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY<--
Joh 3:15 ==>That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.<==
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,==> that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. <==
Col_3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
-->now are we the sons of God, and
it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear,
we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Are you Roman Catholics "NOW SON'S OF GOD?'
IF YOU ARE NOT...WHEN WILL YOU EVER BE?
ONLY SON'S ARE HEIRS TO THE KINGDOM..
Joh 1:10 He/JESUS was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Joh 1:11 He/JESUS came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him/JESUS, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13 Which were born/BORN AGAIN, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
MY FIRST POST ..SOME SIX/SEVEN YEARS AGO..in this forum was
on the subject of...."sanctifying the Lord in your heart"
The definition of sanctify in GREEK...
ἁγ ιά ζω
From G40; to make holy, that is,(ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate:- hallow, be holy, sanctify.
THE SCRIPTURE VERSE WAS/IS
1Pe_3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
SINCE THEN I HAVE ASK YOU ROMAN CATHOLICS
to give an answer .... a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
OVER ALL THEE YEARS no one has responded...with a positive answer..
WHY...IS THERE NO ANSWER...
PERSONALLY I HAVE CONCLUDED.... THAT YOU GIVE NO ANSWER....
you have no hope...
