The bible "SAYS" whatever you personally WILL it to "say."

Martin Luther learned that TRICK, when he used the same book for Catholicism as he did for Protestantism.

Matthew 24
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

I suggest you be careful for what you pray.

Wiccan witches believe they can bring down the power of the goddess from the moon into their selves.

And then I suggest that where they go from there is simply to coo-coo land?

Matthew 25
Matthew 25
King James Version (KJV)

25 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 5

Love for Enemies
43 “You have heard that it was said,‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

<quoted text>this attitude that marge and you both posses is EXACTLY WHY CHRISTIANS STAND AGAINST OSAS.
you are insinuating that because she is Born Again(which I sincerely doubt) she doesn't have to repent any more after she was Saved. and that is contrary to the Word of God. as it si written, the Soul that sinneth shall surely die.
it is better that she hears it now rather that at God's judgement seat and find out that she is lost forever.
as for forgiveness, it isn't up to me when she sins against God, and she did according to the words of Jesus.
and since the sin was not against me, I have no duty to render forgiveness, and if you were a Christian, you would understand that. I do!
she sinned against God and them, Nick forgave her. that settles it as far as I am concerned. the repentance between her and God needs to be addressed by her, not you.
You said, quote, "this attitude that marge and you both posses is EXACTLY WHY CHRISTIANS STAND AGAINST OSAS." End quote.

Christians do not stand against "Eternal Security". True Christians REJOICE in it.

According to your theology marge has sinned and has now lost her salvation. Your theology says if she repents her salvation is restored. What part of her salvation did marge earn that she can somehow lose? That being said, when you sin, and yes atemcowboy, you do sin, do you always repent? Be careful before you answer yes to that question. There are times we sin and do not realize we have sinned. So I will ask you once again, do you always repent when you sin?

You said, quote, "you are insinuating that because she is Born Again(which I sincerely doubt) she doesn't have to repent any more after she was Saved. and that is contrary to the Word of God. as it si written, the Soul that sinneth shall surely die." End quote.

I NEVER said she does not need to repent. I NEVER said she did not have to seek forgiveness. I said WE are to forgive her if she seeks forgiveness or not. A repentant heart that loves the Lord will seek forgiveness just as King David did.

As for your quote from the Word of God, I will ask if the Word of God applies to you? Have you judged her? Are your actions any less self-righteous than hers?

You said, quote, "it is better that she hears it now rather that at God's judgement seat and find out that she is lost forever." End quote.

All believers will appear at the Judgement Seat of Christ in heaven, not on earth.

I Thessalonians 4:16-17, "16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord FOREVER."

Romans 14:10, "So why do you condemn another BELIEVER? Why do you look down on another BELIEVER? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God."

The GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT is on earth for NON-BELIEVERS. If marge is saved she will be judged at the Judgement Seat of Christ not the Great White Throne judgement.

Revelation 20:11-15, 11 "Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire."

When you factor in that 75% of mankind does not follow the teachings of the bible what would you expect?
I suggest that the Jews that compiled the data in the old testament were already pulling away from earlier teachings of Judaism.

Many of the gnostic groups were Jews before the word Christian ever man-I-fested itself into the minds of the early Catholics.

Splinter groups arose here and there, but never came to such power as did Catholicism, when the emperor Constantine gave the Catholics total control over all other religions in the empire.

What is Christian tolerance? Should Christians be tolerant of other religious beliefs?
The original definition of tolerance and the way in which the word is used now are quite different. Originally, tolerance meant to acknowledge that others have differing beliefs and accept that it is their right to do so. In this way, Christians are to absolutely be tolerant. Recently, tolerance has come to mean accepting that those other beliefs are true—something Christians absolutely cannot do.
The Bible is specific that we should expect others to have different beliefs about God. Galatians 4:8 says that those who don't know the true God are slaves to what are not gods. Romans 1:18-25 explains that although God has given evidence of His nature in creation, many will refuse to believe what their eyes tell them. And Luke 10:21-22 says that on occasion, it is to God's purpose that people do not see Him; God often closes the eyes of those who in pride rely on their wits to find Him instead of in humility seek Him with their hearts.
Christians are to tolerate others when they have different beliefs about God. But are we to expect tolerance in return? Luke 6:22 says we are blessed when others reject us because we follow Christ. John 15:18 says that when the world hates us, we need to remember they do so because they hated Christ first. It is foolish to expect tolerance from others toward our Christian beliefs, even if they demand tolerance for their own. God has told us clearly: we will not get it.
But God has also told Christians what our response should be when we are faced with intolerance. Matthew 5:43-48 says we are to love our enemies and pray for them. Romans 12:20 says we are to provide for them. We do not play by the world's rules. We do not respond to intolerance with fear and hate. Instead, we express the love of Christ in us.
Unfortunately, the world no longer defines "tolerance" as acknowledgement that others have a differing belief. It has come to mean full acceptance of those beliefs. Of course this definition makes no logical sense because to embrace this type of tolerance precludes any personal opinion or belief. Christians are not to endorse religious beliefs that run counter to what the Bible teaches.
The problem with tolerance as it is now meant is that it rejects the possibility that objective truth exists. The Bible teaches that truth does exist, that God is truth, and that we are to follow in His truth. John 1:14 and 17 says that Jesus, who came from the Father, gives us truth. John 8:32 and Romans 6:16-23 says that the truth sets us free from the control of sin.
The Bible is also clear regarding those who hide or distort the truth in the name of tolerance. Romans 1:18 says whoever suppresses the truth will receive the wrath of God. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus says that our mission is to teach others of the truth about Him. First Corinthians 13:6 (NIV) says, "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth." John 14:6 says that Jesus is the truth. While Christians can acknowledge the right of others to have different beliefs, we cannot allow those beliefs to go unchallenged for one simple reason: it is not loving, and Jesus calls us to love (Luke 10:25-37).
It's inevitable that the world will call believers intolerant, but we can mitigate the damage by being intolerant in the way God tells us to. First, we must know what we believe (1 Peter 3:15).
