    Saved in 3 tenses?

    When you get a chance, I still would like help with my last questions, though. I still don’t quite understand them yet.

    Saved in 3 tenses?

    Sometimes it can be difficult to determine what the context of the word is. Especially since, when we talk about being saved in the Christian community, we mean from hell, and being brought into God’s family. I feel like I’ve been learning a lot, though. I was having a thought last night as well, about how being born of God, of incorruptible seed and becoming His children, how could we ever be lost? I know many who say we can lose salvation, say that we can grieve the Holy Spirit until He leaves or until we get too hardened to listen, but I can’t think of a verse in the NT that says He will ever not be apart of us for any reason, and I don’t believe He says that He will leave us, either. Also, even if we don’t listen to God (even though we should and it’s very wrong if we choose not to), I don’t see how that means we won’t be His children, anymore. We are still born of God and Christ is in us and He can’t deny Himself, the Bible says that. Just thought I’d share that, it was a moment of something simple, clicking in my head. I may still struggle, but it got me thinking some more.

    Prayers for husband’s job

    My husband is looking for a new job, the place he’s looking into would make him work either Saturday or Sunday and he wouldn’t know which schedule he has until he’s hired and in training. They are going to call him Friday to see if he’s made up his mind about it and would want to go ahead and have the interview. He’s going to pray about it and see where God leads him. Our friend at church works for the company and he said that he just told them straight- forward, that he couldn’t do Sundays and they were good with that. I told my husband about that and suggested that he just do the interview and mention that, and if they want him, they’ll hire him. He still wants to wait and pray which I agree with, I just would appreciate you all keeping us and the situation in your prayers! I also have a personal prayer request for myself. I would definitely appreciate prayers for that, too! Thank you!

    Sorry, one more thing- how does Matthew 10:28 relate to the discussion of the soul we’ve been talking about? It seems like it means more than whether we are doing well on earth/being kept alive, because Jesus says to not worry about the people hurting their bodies, but fear God because He can throw our bodies and souls in hell. Also, the part in this chapter talking about enduring until the end and this being repeated in Matthew 24, I’m a bit confused, because I feel the wording seems to be talking about Christians. These things are making me a little anxious, I was working with my husband about these and he couldn’t figure it out, either.

    Thank you, I am a bit confused though because I think it was in one of the letters from John, he said they left us because they weren’t of us, I know that was also about false teachers, but I tended to think that it also meant that Christians wouldn’t depart, either. So, I guess my question is, how could they depart if they were truly saved? And if their conscience is seared, how could they ever come back? I just read through the part about conscience being seared again, I think maybe that was in reference to the false teachers, perhaps. Maybe because if they hear and reject the truth to the point of leading many astray, that it might be very unlikely that they would ever repent and believe the truth? Am I getting this right, you think? Still, I’m still a bit confused about Christians departing from the faith, since the Bible seems to say in other places that we won’t do that.

    I had a question about 1 Timothy 4, verse 1 says people will depart from the faith and verse 2 says their conscience will be seared (I was thinking how can they have conscience about this kind of thing if they’re not saved)? Also verse 16, is this about the soul salvation again, or do you think it’s about our eternal salvation? I thought from the context that it seemed like the eternal one. I would appreciate your thoughts!

    Thank you! That’s what I was kind of thinking, but wasn’t sure! Thank you very much, I’m very happy to hear that I’m not coming across that way! I appreciate all of your help, very much!

    Is Mark 8:34-38 about salvation or discipleship and fellowship? I’ve always been a little confused about this. In vs 36 it talks about losing your own soul, just interested in knowing what in this context, that means. Im sorry that I ask so many questions, I just get overwhelmed. I just want to help take away any ammunition that my mind has, to cause me doubt about what I’ve learned. Although what I’ve learned so far makes sense, I still get antsy when I see a similar verse that seems to say something different than the others. I know the Bible doesn’t contradict itself, but I just like to know what certain verses are saying, so that I’m able to better understand the main point of a passage. I just never want to come across as just wanting to debate or that I’m being difficult, I feel that I’ve made some people on this site, feel this way. It hurts, I love the church and I don’t want to seem that I’m trying to cause division. I just need help, sometimes.

    Okay! I’m sorry, I think I was misinterpreting what you had said. I understand now, thank you!

    I was reading over this again and looked up Romans 6, i know that what’s being talked about is to live righteously and not go back to a sinful lifestyle, because we’ve been made alive through Jesus, but I kind of thought that verse 23 was talking about salvation, I wasn’t sure how that would be about physical death. I’m just curious how you see that, I’m just trying to get a clearer understanding.

    Thank you both! I will mull this over, so far it makes sense, to me.

    In Ezekiel 18, Gods says all souls belong to Him and that the soul that sins shall die. I’m thinking He means since He created all of us, that’s why He says our souls belong to Him. But, what does He mean when He talks about the soul that sins, dies?

    Thank you for clearing that up! That makes sense!

    I had one more question that just came up. It says in Ecc. 12:7 that everyone’s spirit goes to be with God at our deaths. How could that be, if so many won’t be saved? Just a bit confused.

    Chicken Aristocrat!

    So, I went to this family owned Italian restaurant with my husband, not long ago and had the best Italian dish I’ve ever had!! It was called Chicken Aristocrat. I had never heard of it before, it was a thin chicken breast, topped with a thin and lightly breaded slice of eggplant, and a slice of mozzarella, on top. It was served on top of spaghetti and the sauce was soo yummy. It was a pink sauce, I got to ask the waitress what was in it and she was nice enough to tell me! It was made with cream, parmesan, and a bit of marinara. I could tell there was basil in it, too. It kinda reminded me of creamy tomato basil soup! (Not surprisingly.) lol! I’m going to try to make it this weekend! I’m on a low carb diet, so I’m changing a couple of things! I’m using chicken thighs instead of breast, because we prefer dark meat and it was cheaper! I’m going to butterfly cut it and probably pound it pretty flat. I got eggplant and am going to make an almond meal breading (you mix almond flour and water and bake it, to make “bread crumbs “) and then I’m going to bake the eggplant with the faux bread crumbs. Lol! Next, I’m making the sauce with heavy cream, parmesan, dried basil, and a touch of marinara sauce that has oregano, garlic, and basil in it (it’s Red Gold brand). I use a kind of spaghetti that is supposed to be low-glycemic, so it’s good for low carb diets. The brand is, Dream Fields. I know they had some kind of law suit against them, because it wasn’t as low-glycemic as they claimed, apparently, but I personally don’t notice having issues with it! Not sure if they sell it in stores anymore, may have to find it online when I need to stock up again! Just thought I’d share the recipe! I’m not going to really measure anything, so that’s why I didn’t list amounts. There’s a lot of breaded eggplant recipes online and the sauce is simple, just need to add stuff to your preferences! Will get back and let you all know how it turns out!! Update: Was very good! Breaded the eggplant in almond flour and finely crushed pork rinds. Turned out better than I thought it would :)
