    Hell in a hand basket

    Does the Bible actually say it's wrong to have sex with children? For an all rounded moral book it left that out. I mean how am I going know it's wrong to molest children if the Bible doesn't actually tell me that it's not.

    Hell in a hand basket

    Your understanding of sin is from the Bible, mine is not. I don't regard sin as rebellion against any possible existent God. Sin is just an old human terminology that people invented to classify thing's they conceive are wrong (Or evil) But with the increase of knowledge & learning we open our society to different concept's about our universe. We have new ways of understanding thing's, conceptually & technologically, and the Bibles classification of sin just doesn't cover everything we do today. This is why you can't know biblically if Pokémon is invoking demon's or Harry Potter is actual witchcraft. Is abortion wrong? Is smoking wrong? What does God think of us using plastic's & petroleum? what does God think about our current styles of music & fashion? If you think about it the Bible doesn't say much about our current day & age, it all comes down to jamming old Bible verses to fit where they don't fit. I see , since people enjoy raping children more today than ever before , it is no longer sin . Perfect !

    Unpardonable sin

    I think what makes it unpardonable is that you are not the least bit interested in going back. But that's just me.

    I asked Jesus what must i do to go into heaven

    Here James is rightly dividing the truth for us: Jas 2:21-26 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    Repentance?

    I hope and pray that it might be so for you. This particular sermon is a detailed presentation of repentance like no other that I have heard all at one time. I especially appreciate that it is not a topical presentation but instead a exposition of the Bible verse by verse passage by passage. It gives me so much historical and cultural context that helps me in my understanding of the word of God. This particular presentation jumps right into Repentance from word one.

    climate change and the end times

    The climate has been changing for a very long time. Half the US used to be covered in a glacier. The sahara used to be forest. The earth changes. It always has. It is an interesting subject. Where it becomes annoying is when some people, under color of government, want to change our lives to "combat" it. And the comical part is that we are at a major solar minimum right now. It's getting COLDER. However, the whole thing, to me, is a lack of understanding by the same people that tend to be convinced by YouTube videos that "prove" we didn't go to the moon and the earth is flat. People forget that we are coming out of one of the quietest hurricane decades in a very long time. So sure, it seems worse. But that is like being a bug born in Death valley at 3:00 a.m and by 10:00 a.m. you think the world is coming to an end and you are going to fry to death. Don't worry. It will be really cold tonight.

    Wrong. Neither of those verses state that we are saved by works. You and the OP are promoting false teaching from a lying spirit.

    I asked Jesus what must i do to go into heaven

    Gal 6:8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Rom 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. What the OP heard from the Lord is in complete agreement with scripture.

    I asked Jesus what must i do to go into heaven

    I didn't say anything against obedience. I said that obedience is the result of salvation, not the cause of it. We do not obey to get saved; we obey because we are saved. No, the OP was not hearing from the Lord, but from a lying spirit. Salvation is by grace through faith alone in Christ alone apart from any works of any kind.

    thank you, I have bookmarked this website as it seems a wonderful resource.

    I asked Jesus what must i do to go into heaven

    Why does it give so many the heebeejeebees whenever obedience is mentioned? Jesus Himself obeyed the Father and told us if we love Him we will keep His commandments.....which are engraved on our hearts through His Spirit of those who know Him. It is the flesh that wants to be contrary to the Spirit within us. The OP was for sure hearing from the Lord.....what he/she heard is completely in keeping with Christ Jesus. Isa 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. Rom 13:8-10 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Jesus did not come giving us another set of laws to fulfill….He came showing us a more excellent Way (of life). That Way of life is a law of love. He didn’t give us a set of comprehensive detailed rules to obey by our own righteousness and self-effort..…. but what He did was to give examples showing what it means to walk in love and walk by faith. Do not commit adultery, do not divorce your spouse, forgive your enemies, turn the other cheek, etc….because to do otherwise is not love or mercy. Do not worry about your life, what you will wear, what you will eat, do not store up for yourselves on earth….these are not rules/laws per se, but examples of how to walk by faith. And if we LOVE Him, we will endeavour and learn to live accordingly (by denying self) and to obey His voice….if He indicates that we are not to move to a certain place, or work in a certain place, or marry a certain person, then we obey Him out of love for Him.........and sometimes He helps us resist the temptation to disobey with a healthy dose of fear, out of love for us, because it means life for us when we put God before ourselves and our own wants and wishes and tendencies which are contrary to the Spirit of Life. Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Amen!

    Repentance?

    Hi Yet Again, At our own local church we are studying the Book of Acts. From that study comes this presentation. I share of it in hope you might find it beneficial. It is all about repentance! http://lakesidechapel.com/sermons/7154?language=English

    Repentance?

    I never said that. I am saying that we should repent daily. Badjao is the one saying we don't need to repent daily of our sin.

    Repentance?

    no. people go on a Sunday, and leave, and thats that. Nothing else. Some of the bigger town and city churches have sunday school, but that doesnt teach repentance or sin either, it teaches the bible stories and that Jesus is our friend.

    Repentance?

    Hi again, I am most curious as to whether these churches have study classes, Sunday School or home study groups.

    Repentance?

    you dont think we should repent in our daily prayers and ask forgiveness of our sins? How often do you think we should pray for forgiveness?
  24. maryjayne

    Repentance?

    there is no mention of sin or repentance outside of the Eucharist itself on a Sunday. Once a month. No mention in sermons, or to those who are not yet Christians. And very few of the Church of England use the book of common prayer, or the book of common worship. None of the churches outside the CofE do either. So there are huge numbers of new Christians or would be Christians who are not hearing the message properly, even in this 'Christian' country. Thats why i am glad that the church I can get to every couple of months does use that service.

    Whale of a time

    Unless God did something in his life for him to hang his belief on, then how can he ever believe. Did you understand the premise of the answer I gave him? He need's God to show him something of itself so he can believe. A encounter, a healing, a dream, a vision. Something.

    Repentance?

    Yeah, that is really bad theology. No Christian should pay this advice any heed. It is false doctrine and has no place in the mind of a true Christian.

    Repentance?

    Hi, As I look it seems the book of common prayer treats the subject of repentance very seriously. http://www.ccepiscopal.org/handouts/bcp-1662.pdf Pages 143 though 152 just pound on the significance of repentance and consequence of not being repentant and of not paticipating in Communion. Is that the presentation of Communion or Lords Supper that you attend? I see no wishy washiness within that . Is it that there has not been additional explanation in a class of some kind that is troubling? Seems to me anyone educated into that particular presentation of Lords Supper/ Communion/ Eucharist would take repentance pretty seriously.
