    • I am kind of lost here  . Is this about progressive Christianity? What are the core beliefs of progressive Christianity?
    • But just think MG some day the whole picture will come into view.  Right we are always in need of learning.
    • I have only had one encounter with a demon.  I saw it in a woman at the hospital I worked in.  It froze in my tracks when she sat up in bed made claws with her fingers and growled and screamed.  I never want to see that again!
    • Hebrews 10:26 (KJV) [26] For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, The understanding that those born of God's Son's blood will endure and those not 1 John 2:19 There are Biblical directives to work out your salvation in fear and trembling Phil 2:12-16 indicating (not of works Eph 2:8-9) but of certainty am I self deceived because you shall know them by their fruits... follow the reasoning of Heb 10:3-10 -> what we have joined into (The Body of Christ) with this question from Paul 1 Cor 6:15-16 ... it entails the need to bring the body under subjection verse 1 Cor 9:27 + Rom 7:1-8:1. Knowing the eternal security taught by Our Lord in His request unto The Father John 17:6-19 ...we are left to buffet the body verse "cast away" must then be the rewards lost in the living unto His Glory at this time and the life verse-> yet so as by fire seen below:
      {snip}1. 1 Cor 9:27 [I myself should be a castaway] or rejected, or disapproved of; that is, by men: the apostle's concern is, lest he should do anything that might bring a reproach on the Gospel; lest some corruption of his nature or other should break out, and thereby his ministry be justly blamed, and be brought under contempt; and so he be rejected and disapproved of by men, and become useless as a preacher: not that he feared he should become a reprobate, as the word is opposed to an elect person; or that he should be a castaway eternally, or be everlastingly damned; for he (Paul) knew in whom he had believed, and was persuaded of his interest in the love of God, and that he was a chosen vessel of salvation, that could not be eternally lost: 2 Tim 1:12 though supposing that this is his sense, and these his fears and concern, it follows not as neither that he was, so neither that he could be a lost and damned person: the fears of the saints, their godly jealousies of themselves, and pious care that they be not lost, are not at all inconsistent with the firmness of their election, their security in Christ, and the impossibility of their final and total falling away; but on the contrary are overruled, and made use of by the Spirit of God, for their final perseverance in grace and holiness.

      Yeilding to the last of instruction set seen at the Judgment Seat of Christ 1 Cor 3:11-23

      Does this look progressively correct to line upon line precept upon precept?
    • The judgment seat of Christ or the Bema Seat judgment is very different than the Great white throne judgment. In the judgment seat of Christ believers will be judged on what they have done while in their body while on earth. They have been saved by the Blood of Christ. They will be going to heaven. There will be awards according to what they have done. Some will get many while some may not get any at all. One of the rewards will be a crown. The Bible tells us that the crowns will not be the only reward we will receive. Those going through the Great White Throne judgment will all go to hell. NO EXCEPTIONS. Although I do believe that the book of Revelation tells us that their will be different punishments in hell. But it is all bad...very,very bad. Question: "What is the Judgment Seat of Christ / Bema Seat of Christ?"

      Answer: Romans 14:10–12 says, “For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. . . . So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God” (ESV). Second Corinthians 5:10 tells us, “We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” In context, it is clear that both passages refer to Christians, not unbelievers. The judgment seat of Christ, therefore, involves believers giving an account of their lives to Christ.

      The judgment seat of Christ does not determine salvation; that was determined by Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf (1 John 2:2) and our faith in Him (John 3:16). All of our sins are forgiven, and we will never be condemned for them (Romans 8:1). We should not look at the judgment seat of Christ as God judging our sins, but rather as God rewarding us for our lives. Yes, as the Bible says, we will have to give an account of ourselves. Part of this is surely answering for the sins we committed. However, that is not going to be the primary focus of the judgment seat of Christ.

      At the judgment seat of Christ, believers are rewarded based on how faithfully they served Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). Some of the things we might be judged on are how well we obeyed the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), how victorious we were over sin (Romans 6:1-4), and how well we controlled our tongues (James 3:1-9). The Bible speaks of believers receiving crowns for different things based on how faithfully they served Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). The various crowns are described in 2 Timothy 2:5, 2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, 1 Peter 5:4, and Revelation 2:10. James 1:12 is a good summary of how we should think about the judgment seat of Christ: “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
