"Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true....Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude which has never left me."

If the Holy Spiit is leading a person to repent, then the answer is yes.
Now Yesterday, I spoke of a man who had been spoke to by the Holy Spirit and he refused the call to Come.
and yet I said that he had got Saved just before he died.
was he again wooed by the Spirit? I don't think so. I believe(and this is only my opinion) that he had to come forward on his own, with Faith believing. For the Bible says, that without Faith, it is impossible to Please God.
It had been over 40 year(I think) since God had first spoke to him, and the Bible says that it is not His will that any should perish but that ALL come to repentance. I do believe that this would have been his last chance since he died right after that, and thru me, the Spirit spoke to him telling him that God loved him
Thanks I believe you ..if the SPIRIT is calling you..sticking your conscience ..making you know how wrong And saddening you ..it is still.

Up to you to seek reconciliation..it won't be forCED on you..

I agree.

So if a person willfully sins ..he is NOT closing the door on salvation.

As Hebrews6 would sound like it means..

Or else no Christian can ever ever sin and REPENT.

And that made no sense because many return ...

For what its worth..I think.immature Christians make the error if feeling in their happiness after being saved that they are not going to suffer the same temptation they had before.

IMO thus makes them prime targets for the evil one ...especially if they gave been saved after much sin.

Or he can go after those close to them who may not be saved saved in order to try to take away their immature Faith??

the 4th chapter is a pretty good reference point.

31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

so since this last verse indicates that they along with Barnabas sold their property, and brought proceeds to Peter, that is a pretty good indicator that Yes, they were Believers, and when the came in , Peter Blamed Satan for entering into their heart.

but this is a free world, believe what you want.

Thankfully he said yes..

no, He refused God many years before.

He started coming to that church, first because his wife went there and last because my cousin Pastored and he was related to us, and Jim kept visiting him and he began to come. sat in the last pew and never said a word.

In our churches, we don't like to see people go back and try and influence people into going to the Altar, but if God is directing us, it will work out in Salvation.

I wasn't there when he went forward the next week, but that doesn't matter, He was Saved.

Mmmmmmmm ... so does that mean I can willfully go and bop a preacher (that tells me I'm going to hell) on the head with a sledge hammer, and god won't penalize me? Or does it mean that only another Christian that is saved can get away with such a will-filled call to action?

But you can only find salvation if you believe in Judaism, as the Jews had the first dibs on the one and only god. Catholics tried to steal his affections, but rumor has it that the god out-smarted the Catholics, and still favors ONLY the Jews as his chosen few.

Theology is fickle, as it depends on who is telling the story about the one and only god loving them and ONLY them.

From the book “Weather Lore,” Reader’s Digest, Published 2007, comes the following…
Floods
Almost 5000 years ago, some scientists believe, a large asteroid or comet crashed into the Indian Ocean, producing a tsunami about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Southeast Asia in December 2004. That almost every culture throughout history has had a flood myth, of which Noah and the Ark is the most famous in the Western world, demonstrates the fear and awe that floods inspire in human consciousness.
It suggests that there was such an instance, but it was only one of many...none of which covered the earth to a depth that destroyed all civilization. The story is a religious elaboration based on "some" truth...then again, so are most hoaxes and cons.

Thanks.

Maybe one day this one and only god will put a Jew, a Catholic, a Muslim and a Protestant into a boxing ring, and tell them to go at it until the last one that is standing will be the winner of who the one and only god loves ... period.

I would pay big money for a ring-side seat to watch THAT fight.

The idea of God in the religions taught at present is a sublimation of that old conception of the gods. Its anthropomorphic character is shown, for instance, by the fact that men appeal to the Divine Being in prayers and plead for the fulfillment of their wishes... In their struggle for the ethical good, teachers of religion must have the stature to give up the doctrine of a personal God, that is, give up that source of fear and hope which in the past placed such vase power in the hands of priests."

If theologians way back when had taught that the gods loved everybody ... without putting any conditions on the love ... people would have had no reason to divide into different religions, as religion would all be one.

There would be no need for competing about who was loved ... as everybody would have equal shares of the love.

Wouldn't that have been a better plan?

It's your post ... it's up to you to post a date.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything "chosen" about them.

Albert Einstein, in a letter responding to philosopher Eric Gutkind, who had sent him a copy of his book Choose Life: The Biblical Call to Revolt; quoted from James Randerson, "Childish Superstition: Einstein's Letter Makes View of Religion Relatively Clear: Scientist's Reply to Sell for up to £8,000, and Stoke Debate over His Beliefs" The Guardian,(13 May 2008)
