  1. I already posted several times that I am repentant of all my sins. From the very first answers I gave to question people made me I was very clear about the fact that I sin and that because I acknowledge those sins are evil and turn me away from the Lord which is why I repent and ask for His forgiveness. You have not yet showed me what I did wrong. Some people seem to judge me because I don't subscribe to the "once saved forever saved" (or whatever you call it) false doctrine... but that doesn't mean I don't have Faith in the Lord and that I believe in Eternal Life. The problem for you is that I use a different terminology and don't believe in the false doctrine of "once saved forever saved". I believe Jesus Christ died in the Cross to atone for my sins, and that when I repent of my sins God's Grace is in me because He loves me. I believe in Eternal Life. I believe that if I do not fall from Grace until God chooses to take me to Him I will be with Him in Paradise as He promised the "good thief". More... I came here to learn about Baptists because I thought they followed the Word of God... but apparently they just use it to bash others. I have seen this from many sects before. I am only 26 years old but I have been trashed, anathematized, insulted, and worse because of my Faith in the Word. When I thought I was alone in the middle of sin and rejected by all, God showed me the Way... to Love Him and forget the World. And He has been with me consistently. I have been nothing more than honest about everything I said and the answers I gave. I leave this Forum with just one desire... that God can fill your hearts of His infinite Love because brothers... I didn't feel a thing from you. Only 3 people in this Forum loved me and taught me. I will not say their names but they know who they are. I say this to thank them for I will not come back. I will pray for you all, that God gives you a long and healthy life and shower you with His Grace. I leave with an apology... for not being able to create dialogue with you. May God forgive me and clean my tongue that I may speak no evil. That you may go to the altar knowing I have nothing against you. Goodbye brothers and sisters. For the Sake of the Name.
  2. I didn't say that it applied to just the twelve or the eleven... Anyway, thank you for sharing.
  3. When I repent it is to turn my life unto Christ...
  4. It is not Biblical to repent when we sin? I repent after having sinned... I repent because I worship God... not the World.
  5. 1Tim115 you do not take a "KJV only" position so you are not answering my original question, I never said that the KJV did not possess the Truth. But thanks for the information nevertheless. Jerry80871852 you have yourself said "He ate that which was common, and drank that which was common." how can you say that it was grape juice? There is no mention of grape juice that I know of from that time. It always states "wine". And that is not the only passage that Jesus talks about wine. There are several others. If one does not get drunk I don't see what is the problem with drinking wine as Jesus did.
  6. Definition of "If" (Merriam Webster) 1a : in the event that b : allowing that c : on the assumption that d : on condition that 2: whether <asked if the mail had come> <I doubt if I'll pass the course> 3—used as a function word to introduce an exclamation expressing a wish <if it would only rain> 4: even though : although perhaps <an interesting if untenable argument> 5: and perhaps not even <few if any changes are expected> —often used with not <difficult if not impossible> — if anything : on the contrary even : perhaps even <if anything, you ought to apologize> Hi 1Tim115, Thank you for the explanation and the funny rhyme. As you yourself have said even Paul narrows the definition, so I don't see why one should apply the title to any Christian, with all due respect to all Christians. As far as I know there is quite a consensus that the Apostolic age ended in the early second century as if it didn't we would still be adding "letters" to the bible.

  7. The Scriptures say many things... can you be more specific? You had one moment where you repented from your past sins and declared Jesus is your Saviour... I do it every day.
  8. Following God does not mean I am free from sin and the desires of the flesh... but that whenever I sinned it always caused me great sorrow and I always repented and turned to the Lord for help. It still happens to this day. Just the other day I realized how I was more worried about my things than to clean the flat and not loving my "flatmate" (a young Baptist student mind you, because I am living on the campus where my girlfriend studies) and as soon as I realized that I asked the Lord for forgiveness and vacuumed the floor and cleaned the bathroom and each of his things. It does not mean that it will always be like that... but that I struggle every day to turn my life to Him.
  9. I followed Christ all of my life. I find it hard to believe I am not born again because someone says so. If I was born of the water and the Spirit what "must" I do more?
  10. Hi everyone, So I was reading the link that someone shared with me about Baptists (http://baptistpillar.com/topical_index.html) and have a few questions: 1. Alcohool - What is wrong with alcohool? Jesus Himself drank wine. 2. KJV only - What is the basis to believe that only one translation possesses the Truth? 3. Crucifixion on a wednesday - I don't understand how this can be coherent with Scripture. For now just these... As I already have other topics where I am learning about other things.
  11. Sure. Will try my best to be more clear. Rom 11:22, 1 Cor 9:24-27 1 Cor 10:1-12 II Corinthians 6:1 Colossians 1:22-23 I Timothy 1:18-19 Hebrews 2:2-3 Hebrews 3:12-14 Heb 10:26-31 Hebrews 4:11 2 Peter 2:20 2 Peter 3:17-18 just a few examples....
  12. What event? As far as I remember I have always believed the same... Jesus acompanied my life. I have learned little by little... not in one swoop moment. What I meant with "I was born again" is that I was baptized and that God has always helped me with His infinite Grace during my life. I didn't share details about my baptism because it relates to me not wanting to reveal anything about my denomination.
  13. How to cook 2 desserts for 20 teenagers?

  14. What fraud? One in Christ, D
  15. @John81, I was born again... I believe in One God, my Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, The Lord Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, Light of My life, God with the Father, who for my salvation came to Earth and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit through a Virgin, and for my Salvation was Crucified and Ressurected on the third day, that He will come to Judge living and dead, and that His Kingdom will be eternal. I believe in the Holy Spirit, Lord of life, that is glorified with the Father and Son. @swathdiver, I have Faith in the Lord, but He will Judge me and tell me if I loved Him or not... and I have hope that He will say "Come". I cannot confuse "wishing" with "hope". "wishing" is desiring... a flesh desire... "hoping" is a belief... a spiritual belief. If I died today I would die in peace with my hope on the Lord. Your scenario does not happen every day... but even if it did happen to me I would ask for the Holy Spirit to take my mouth and reassure this person with the words that He wants... not mine. I don't know what I would say. @OLD fashioned I didn't ask for a Church to forgive my sins... I asked which is the True Church. I appreciate your preoccupation but I didn't feel like I needed to clarify what me and my girlfriend do or do not do to a forum full of strangers. But if you are that curious... no... we want to wait till marriage. I called her my girlfriend because there is no other english term for "pre-fiancé". We want to get married, I just haven't yet bought a ring to give her, so officially we are not engaged. The issue I had was that because I don't go to a Baptist Church I only usually get information from her about her Church and I wanted to learn a little more from other people. She does know I am in this Forum but she also warned me that I might find a lot of hostility... apparently she was correct (Not necessarily from you personally). One in Christ, D
  16. @swathdiver, I wasn't citing Scripture... my name is Daniel. That's what I meant. @John81 I believe Jesus is my Saviour... that is not to say that I believe in what some Baptists call "Saved once... saved forever"... @1Tim115 No... I wasn't talking about the Word of God having changed... I was mentioning the fact that to a lot of Christians there is no current authority as the Apostles. If you believe there are still Apostles living, please share where I can find them. @Wilchbla It's called misspelling. One in Christ, D
  17. Please quote a single ad hominem I made about you in this Forum instead of just accusing me without any proof. I made a post about dating sites that you trashed, and used against me without any Scriptural foundation; more, you have not replied to any of my questions regarding this topic... but have constantly trying to turn every post I make about the alleged fact that I didn't post something on some other topic. Why? Wilchbla and swathdiver assessments are correct, and as far as I know... not that much different from my earliest one yet I don't see you attacking them or their posts? Why? Why is it that you see in my questions an attack? Why is it that you do not discuss the arguments but attack the person discussing them? One in Chris, D
  18. If you don't want to answer an honest question... then don't post. How was my question "pretentious" in any way? If it was contentious it is probably because you don't like to be questioned on something you have no answer to. If anyone wants to discuss salvation open a new topic... I created this topic to speak about militarization. I have nothing else to add. One in Christ, D
  19. I was addressing the "taking personal responsability" part of your argument... not the rest. I was talking about the specifics of "how" to love someone else. Love is a very rich word, but if you want to use it concretely in your day to day you have to get into the specifics. As i said before, I was addressing the specifics. Concrete love... not just saying that I love someone but actually doing something about it. I didn't present any doctrine. I have simply questioned what you are teaching me. I don't have a problem with the Words in the Bible. I have a problem with how people use them. For example Luther said "If Satan can turn God's Word upside down and pervert the Scriptures, what will he do with my words -- or the words of others?" I accept that those Churches could only have men as leaders, but nowadays there are no Apostles to lay hands on anyone... no appointments. We are discussing different things. I know God will judge me... my own name tells me that. The matter of the fact is that "living by His Word" has been interpreted by many different Christians in many different ways... That is why I am asking so many questions. Actually I hate repeating myself... it feels like I am losing time when I could be doing something better for my brethren. Are you actually saying that in Matthew 5 Jesus is not instructing? Please oh please... explain why... Well.. I just started learning about Baptist Churches... and I still don't know exactly what is the difference between Baptists and IFB so I am afraid I cannot help you. But thank you for the Passages. So now she's not saved anymore? I'm confused... Can you please explain what you mean? One in Christ, D
  20. Without defense against what? And why does the nation matter? What is good in the concept of a nation? I thought Jesus had died to reconcile all men to God. How does the construct of nation help this? One in Christ, D
  21. In case you didn't notice I rephrased your argument because you didn't use the formal norms for logic arguments... That "1st premise" is not a premise at all.. it already implies the conclusion. But I think I understand now where you are going. So, before one "chooses" a Church one must be born again... and then he/she will be able to choose a Church. This pretty much debases all differences between Churches because one would then be able to reach salvation without actually going to a Church. Right? One in Christ, D
  22. Of course I am. Do you have any New Testament Passage to support it? one in Christ, D
  23. Why is national defense good? Why is military good? One in Christ, D
  24. It seems I have to make it even simpler: So the first premise is: If one responds to Scripture (whatever you imply by that), one is (or may be) born again. Which makes second premise being: If one is to be able to gain understanding of it one requires the Holy Spirit. These premises do not lead to a conclusion. In your first premise you assume that responding to Scripture does not require understanding of it. Then the question arising is: how is one supposed to respond to Scripture without understanding it? The second premise is even against one of your own statements: "Understanding the message doesn't mean one is born again". Then why would one want the Holy Spirit to understand it (as you assert)? Now do you see why your argument does not make sense to me? One in Christ, D
  25. Jesus doesn't say "losing" he actually says "cut it off". How do you know one is a direct instruction and the other one is not? One in Christ, D
