NO... NOT ALL SIN IS WILLFUL ....
Do you believe it's a sin for a Muslim raised to believe that Islam is the one and only truth to not convert to your Protestant flavor of Christianity???

Is that Muslim committing a willful sin when he believes with absolute certainty that the one and only Allah in paradise will save him???

If you can't be kind without a belief in a god, that doesn't say much for you.

And don't forget that your all and all "god" according to scripture created evil! And that doesn't say much for him either.

Theology is plain silly.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

I know that myofascial release works but due to the hernia s you may need special attention ..it seems you may have a lot of scar tissue and that can really mess up your insides. It's not just the outer scars. But they show where the deep scars are..
Even if your SURGERY is all laparoscopic ..if you have the type of body that forms scars it can still play havoc with your insides.
Will pray you find the right surgeon ..
If you lived in Fla ..I could suggest a good one :(
On another note.
Do you BELUEVE a Saved person can fall away..sin..And the SPIRIT will call them to repentance ..And they can be reconciled??
It's a discussion we have been on today
And a poster. HAS said that Hebrews 6 4-6 says we cannot willfully sin and still be covered by the shed blood of our Lord.
That we have e crucified Him again..
Then how to explain a definite call You are feeling ..I believe from the Spirit to return.

Hey Gif, i can understand where there are people walking around who will never be saved, this verse comes to mind; Lev 27:29 No person specially set apart for destruction may be bought back. Such a person must be put to death.
But your not talking about those right? Your talking about a person who has been called to repentance and repented and receieved Jesus as their Saviour, correct?
Marge

I have been researching on those verses. HEB 6

Hit a couple ..there are a few you can look up ..But so far these are enlightening

And this gives,another view,of exactly the audience the writer was addressing..it from the Orthodox standpoibt

From my perception, Mother Teresa saw the stupidity in her Catholic religion ... but she stuck to it because she was taught that to leave it was to burn in hell ... and she took that as very serious stuff indeed.
Imagine how hopeless she felt among those in India who outnumbered her and refused to become Catholics. She must have been completely overwhelmed in the idea that she couldn't save them from eternal hell even though that is what god expected of her.
Religion is wretched BUNK!
All Christians see the flaws in their particular persuasion,and they often experience rubbing shoulders with people within their organization who are beligerrant and so on.I highly doubt from the years I have read her books,and seen films about her work,that Mother Teresa feared the wrath of God if she disagreed with her organization. It is unthinkable that Mother Teresa would have left her mission in India,as she started it,and it was very successful in helping so many who were terribly poor and afflicted.

There is nothing about the woman that critics within the church and without could ever prove,being that the work Mother did, initiated the most positive of results.The mistakes that might have occurred,or the people who may have mis-represented the work could not tear down what was greatly accomplished.Every Christian no matter what affiliation respected Mother Teresa,and deeply loved her work with the poorest of the poor,the lowest caste in India.God will determine who will be saved,it is not our place to judge that ministry,or to demean the fact that she might not have influenced MANY to convert to Christ.

There have been Christian missionaries who worked whole lifetimes in countries hostile to the Christian message,that never saw the results of their labor.

There is nothing hidden from His sight,nothing we do whether evil or good escapes His notice.What is silly is that you believe June in the BIG BANG theory,or better yet POP goes the Weasel!

Got it. Thanx much. As an aside I also believe that believe that someone outside the Ortho Church can be Born Again and Saved.There are basically 3 different ways the Ortho Church looks at this.Why 3? Cause the Ortho Church does not presume to know God's mind.Some will say yes . Some will say no.

Where I most likely differ from the Church is that believe that someone can be in the Ortho Church and not Born Again.The Ortho Church is not about making dogma and rules and following them. It is about union with God. It is about that relationship with Christ. You can attend every service and follow every rule and come on Topix and attack anyone that disagrees and not be Born Again. his occurs in the heart.I can cite Fathers whose writing would state the goal of the Church is spiritual- spiritual life- being in a relationship with Christ.

As you can see I am comfortable sharing what I believe in my heart. I share this with my priest as well.I love and respect my Church. It is not dictatorial.Neither does it indoctrinate.In history it had a large part in defining the faith,, such as Who was Christ, etc. But it was spiritual enough to know it could never define precisely God or Godf's ways. It guides you to a place- from there you must reach out to God with the heart. This goes beyond words.

ALBERT EINSTEIN AND GOD

Here is the full quote, taken directly from a publication by Princeton University:

"In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views." The Expanded Quotable Einstein, Princeton University, page 214
