    • I don't think it's teaching works salvation in that particular line (in other places it is), they just don't know if it is by works or not. It reminds me of the song "I Can Go In", it sounds like someone running back and forth and back and forth like, "Can I go In? Can I go In?". Then they get the answer they like and they're like "OHHHHH! I can go in!!!". Guess what, man, if you waited until then to figure it out, you can't go in. However, I agree with you that this song is a little off. It seems like they are equating Calvary with Heaven, in which case, they are trying to pray their way through; which, the last time I checked, is in and of itself a work.🤔🤔🤔
    • I certainly apologise if my response came across that way, for that was definitely not my intent. I was simply trying to point out that the Bible, not our own thoughts, should be the prime. Sorry if it came across as aggressive or mean. 
    • Let's go back to the original issue at hand, the temptation of Jesus Christ We're told:    "Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. " (Heb 4:14-16)  Jesus went through that time of temptation, as well as other temptations through His life, many which I suspect we don't know of, in order that, though God, yet He might be able to be approachable to us, having been tempted as we were. Jesus was, and is, indeed, God in the flesh; yet He is also the Son of man, fully God but fully Human, else He could not pay the price for the sin of the world. Therefore He was tempted for OUR sakes, that WE might see Him, while as God, yet also as one of us, YET without sin. Could Jesus have sinned? The jury is still out on that-personally, I believe He could have, being all man, because otherwise, what comfort can we obtain in His being tempted, yet without sin? But I will not speak that dogmatically, and am certain there is some disagreement there. But the point being, Jesus HAD to be tempted, that He might be a fitting High Priest for us. As for Satan, well, the Lord simply used him; Satan thought he was in control, but even at the end, Satan will only be able to do that which the Lord allows, and he will be stopped when the Lord deems the time for him to be stopped. There is no power but of God.   I have been in this group for a long time, Totoosart, and I urge you, not to take their words as unkindness-they are all good folks, but we are all quite zealous for the Lord and His word. You are still new to Christ, in a place that is difficult for you to find good discipling-be patient and listen, because there are many, many years of walking with the Lord in this group. Be encouraged, hold tight that which is good!            
    • Think that God would want to see 2 believers work it out if at all possible, but if not able to, the abused spouse free to divorce and remarry someone in the lord.
    • Brother, my approach is much different with those who name Christ and the lost who are without God. I would contend that your criticism is very subjective. It is my understanding that the truth of scripture about Satan is blatantly being rejected in favor of human opinion and ideas.  You may read them as attacks but I view them as contending for the faith.  My responses are in zero way personal whatsoever. I am being bold here because I see this dear brother seriously mislead about Satan and it is dangerous. Were it not for compassion for him I would not even be spending the time to give responses.
