  1. You don't stop viruses. Especially one that has mutated as much as this one (33 last count, a Nobel Prize winning viriologist from France, the guy who discovered the HIV virus, thinks the virus contains RNA from the HIV virus and it may have been an attempt to find a vaccine for HIV and it got out of the lab). They run their course and we develop immunity. It's a fact of life. I had the Russian flu (it's third time around in 80 years) when I was a child and it nearly fried my brain. Millions died from that virus but a whole nation's economy wasn't destroyed because of it. Locking down life is
  2. Any organization or group that doesn't teach that Jesus and Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life. So Jesus defined it.
  3. Not sure what your gripe is. I was not knocking Trump. I'm pro-Trump all the way. In fact, I supported Trump on this sight back in 2016 when everyone wanted Cruz, and of course, I was "admonished" at that time also. I figured I'd try it out here again but I see the touchiness and pomposity are still prevalant. It seems you can't post anything on the sight without getting an "admonition". No wonder it's dead as a door nail now and all the good members are gone. I thank you for accepting my admonition. Good day.
  4. If Trump wins again expect the riots and violence to increase tenfold.
  5. Abraham was before the law and righteousness was imputed by him believing what God said about his ancestors and land not about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  6. Taqiya is the practice of dissimulation within mostly in Shia Islam although Sunnis (Muda'rat) can also under certain situations. Kitman, Tawriya, Muruna are also other terms used for justified lying around anyone who isn't Muslim. These are touched on in the Quran but are mostly all taught in the Hadith i.e. the sayings of Muhammad which Islamic jurisprudence is built upon. And also, Christians do not want to lie to and murder Muslims and send them to hell like the other way around. This is not considered a good thing to do to "infidels" like it is in Islam.
  7. Are you trusting in your own righteousness to save your soul?
  8. It's about finishing the Christian race so we can receive the prize at the end (vs 14). We don't win salvation. That would make it no longer a gift. I do think at the judgement seat Jesus will be disappointed with many of us.
  9. Are you Church of God because you are hung up on repentance.
  10. They believe that you can live a perfectly sinless the rest of your life but if you backslide you will go to hell. Of course, they pile on unscriptural rules and regulations as evidence of their holiness. Don't dare watch a movie or wear panty hose or you'll go to hell (interestingly, the internet seems to be OK though). My pastor friend told me all about them. He was a member of a Holiness church and even went to one of their colleges in Florida (Hobe Sound Bible College) . In his church they didn't even preach from a bible but rather some manual of church standards. As far as their reve
  11. Re-read Ukulelemike's above post again. It's deep and to the point. Adam and Eve had a promise of grace (but still had to ride it out in Abraham's Bosom) and Noah's grace was clearly a figure of the grace to come but the gift of grace did not come until the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That's why we call this "economy of God" the "dispensation of grace".
  12. Yes, a submission to the gospel not a submission or promise to do good works. That submission comes after salvation. Some Christians think of repentance as a deal with God in relation to salvation.
  13. When I said the thief didn't have time to repent I was referring to the way the word repentance is used by many today, i.e. stop sinning and start doing right. The thief didn't really have time to pull that off. It was pure mercy he was looking for based on the fact that he was nailed to a cross and couldn't do anything. He hit the rock bottom, the end of the line with no change of changing his ways. Repentance is nothing but a change of mind. The thief had that. I've seen many young Christians really messed up with Lordship Salvation. Like I said before, one even went completely bon
  14. Did the thief on the cross have time to repent of his sin in the way you insist repentance is? He only had time to change his mind about the wretched life he lived and the goodness of the Lord. No time for anything else. I guess he stopped sinning when he died.
  15. Commands of the gospel? To obey the gospel is to believe the report. There are no commands of the gospel other than believing the gospel unto salvation. Somebody has been filling your mind with junk in order to ruin your peace and assurance with God. Stay away from Steve Anderson and stop over-analyzing the simplicity of Christ.
