I beleive in a know so Salvation. and I said that a peson that is Saved will go to heaven.

nothing in those words indicate a belief in a doctrine of OSAS as you have tried to say that I have posted the likes of that doctrine in the past.

SO I WILL REINTRATE MY WORDS AGAIN TO HELP YOUR FEEBLE AND CARNAL MIND.

IF I STAY SAVED WHEN I DIE, I WILL ENTER INTO HEAVEN, HOWEVER IF MY LIFE IS SIMILIAR TO WHAT YOU LEAD WITH YOUR FILTHY MOUTH, CHANCES ARE POOR AND SLIM AND SLIM JUST LEFT TOWN.

No way dear, All Good things from above are a Gift from God, zero credit goes to our 'works', it's Him working in us that we learn things from Him.
First one must be born-again through faith in Jesus and then and only then can we do 'Any Works' including confessing Him our Lord and Saviour at a water baptism.
so what did you expect from a sda. and you have been calling him a"brother"for months, while raging at me.lol

I don't think he realized it was the apostles speaking in tongues/languages of the foriegn Jews etc. that had come from all over and heard them/apostles speaking in their native languages the word of God.
again, that is a sign for the unbeleivers and a great miracle happened that day.now adays, you would not expect to see many different people from foreign lands in a Missionary meeting like that one was.

so consider that God Supplied the means for them ALL to hear.

and if you replaced your hatred of me, you might learn something that would or might cause YOU to get Saved too.

Of course not. The belief is that The wine transforms into the blood. Its a miracle. Just like when Jesus tranformed water into wine at the marriage at Cana.
Well Justice the new wine Jesus made at the wedding was unfermented,

What is the meaning and importance of the Transfiguration?
Three of the Gospel writers record the account of Jesus talking with Moses and Elijah on a mountaintop (Matthew 17:1-8; Mark 9:2-8; Luke 9:28-36). The apostles Peter, James, and John witnessed this scene. What is the meaning and importance of this event known as the Transfiguration?

One reason for the Transfiguration is given in Matthew 16:28, the verse preceding Matthew’s record of the event:“Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.” This “Son of Man coming in His kingdom” was shown to “some”—Peter, James, and John—at the Transfiguration.

Second, the description of Jesus’ clothing appearing dazzling white revealed the supernatural nature of Jesus. John would see Jesus again in such light during His heavenly vision in Revelation (Revelation 1). Such a presentation made clear Jesus was not only a miracle worker, but also the Messiah (John 1:14).

Third, the scene with Jesus speaking with Moses and Elijah revealed Jesus as someone who already knew these men of God. As Jesus would later say,“Before Abraham was, I am”(John 8:58). This event highlights the deity of Jesus.

Fourth, Jesus showed Himself as fulfilling the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 5:17). Moses represented the Law since He was the one through whom the Law was given (John 1:17). Elijah represented the prophets of the Old Testament, especially in the sense that He ascended directly to heaven without dying on earth.

Fifth, Jesus revealed His Transfiguration to His key followers to show them His glory. Matthew 17:5-6 notes,“He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said,‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.’ When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified.” The presence of God’s voice in a cloud resembled the way God spoke to the Israelites in the wilderness in the Old Testament. Just as the Israelites responded in fear then, so Peter, James, and John bowed in fearful worship as they heard the voice of God telling them to listen to His Son.

Peter later wrote regarding this Transfiguration,“We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory, saying,‘This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.’ We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with Him on the sacred mountain”(2 Peter 1:16-18). The Transfiguration stood as a transforming event in the life of Peter, a man who would go on to lead the early church as they spread the Gospel message.

Clay, I beleive that you are a person that is good, however I qustion how could a[good] person stay in a church that is constantly bombarded with these kinds of people as leaders. they are hypocrites of the highest order and supposedly they are to be of high moral character, guiding you and your church.

My denomination defrocked one Pastor for his purchase of porno magazines.

LOOK AT THAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND YOUR CHURCH

The nature of the allegations could cast a shadow over the church’s moral authority in Europe – the continent where the church is losing the most ground globally. O’Brien, the head of the church in Scotland, had emerged as a leading voice in Britain against homosexuality. He has described gay marriage as “grotesque” and same-sex couples as “immoral.”

In a statement, O’Brien said he would not attend the papal conclave, as planned, but will “pray with them and for them that, enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they will make the correct choice for the future good of the Church.”

The exact nature and timing of O’Brien’s alleged inappropriate behavior was not spelled out by the Observer, which said the accusations were made to the Vatican’s emissary in London in early February. But one of the alleged victims said O’Brien had started a “relationship” with him in the 1980s that resulted in the need for long-term counseling. Another of the men, according to the newspaper, said O’Brien had initiated “inappropriate contact” during nightly prayers.

lol, the [reverence ] comes form being obediance to the words of Jesus when He said do this in REMEMBRANCE OF ME.

how much [reverance] is being displayed when the rcc insistes that the wine is changed into blood. sorry but it isnt any wonder that the first and only time that I have ever entered into a catholic church, I was grossed out.

NO CHRISTIAN SHOULD EVER FEEL AT HOME IN A CATHOLIC CHURCH.

Because Jesus Christ was secretly waiting for the born agains ... Oh wait, the real "Church of Christ" (bearing His name) or the Pentecostals ... or whatever. Anything but the evil Catholic Church...Jesus was waiting to reveal his true intentions.
Conspiracy Christianity is all it is.
Consider any people that are poor and living in an area with a terrible human rights record. What if they found a Bible or access to a Bible and they studied it intently and wanted to do God's will? What is it in the inspired scriptures that would give these people the idea that they had to have the RCC?

We are constantly being told in the media that priests are child abusers or homosexuals, or both. But how representative that is of the whole is impossible to say.

Judas was one of Jesus' disciples. Wolves in sheeps clothing have always been a problem.

Flash....

Jesus appoints an ex-NAZI to be His earthly vicar....

... the same man who helped engineer a decades-long, worldwide cover-up of child-sex abuse.

This is after Jesus uses Saint Bonito Mussolini to give His "one true" church statehood, along with the power of diplomatic immunity....

... so His "one true" church could use that power to avoid accountability and justice in the sexual abuse of hundreds of orphans and deaf children.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Yes, some people are taught since early childhood that this is how the greatest power in the universe "saves souls."

Question -- what are the odds of believing such nonsense unless one is taught this stuff sense childhood?

Answer -- slim to none. Stats tell us you have to be born into this cult. Otherwise, there is only about a 5% chance of being saved this way.

What a freaky Jesus-god they create.

I think I've been able to provide a reason for my hope and joy.

And, what I am saying to him is that he doesn't want the answer he's asking for or he'd read the article. Your right that he can't debate the link.
