  1. Would you mind explaining how you have implemented Christ's teaching's to you in your own life. Like, do you have a family to support, a job, church etc, and how much, if any do you set aside for unforeseen situations, and giving, helping taxes, car break downs, etc. How does that equate to your giving of your time and money to help less fortunate. In other words, do you take these 'literal interpretations' of Christ, and implement them into your life. If so, How? Would be interesting.

    Great point, and I hadn't even considered it. You are correct, he shouldn't have become an officer knowing what may be expected of him, if he was not confident of his integrity/faith. I was simply thinking we would never be picked as jurist when questioned, due to "perceived' possible bias.

    You would not ever get picked, nor I. If we answered the attorneys pre trial questionnaire honestly.........
  4. "I think we can assume that most Gentiles who become Christians are told that Jesus resurrected on Sun day" ? Yes, I believe that is true, but do not know what 'most' is. Is that important today? "This comes from the RCC who introduced Sun day as the new worship day! " Since this is a blatant lie how can those who believe it 'be saved ??? Surely thou jest! They simply believe upon the Gospel of our Lord, Jesus. The same way you did, Betha. Right? "To believe the Gospel 1 Cor 15 v1-4.means to believe the TRUTH ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE....NOT a concoction from the Pope!" What has the pope to do with this discussion? As I posted earlier, I left the RCC and got saved. I have much disregard for the pope and any other cardinals, bishops, priests, who preach false doctrine. Again, what does this have to do with this discussion? "So now if you are prepared to be corrected by the Word of God will you TURN to the TRUTH and BE SAVED?" What amazes me is I think you actually believe what your posting, and you are also evading every question that I have ask you about your beliefs, and must not have read what I posted. Catholics can hear the truth, believe by faith, and cry out to God for His salvation mercy. As can atheist, Buddhists, Mormons, Baptists, and even Adventists......... It doesn't matter where they came from. It only matters where they're going. I'm saved Betha, no matter what you post here, and you need to get that straight. If you want to convince me of your sabbath belief, then answer a question I have now and then. And stop preaching, assuming and accusing. This is a discussion. Sister...
  5. So, based upon what I have understood in your post, I need to return to keeping the Sabbath holy as it was explained in the word? This would mean, to YOU, my returning back to the Lord, and would then be saved, or re saved? Could you explain how this affects my/everybody's salvation. Thanks Betha.... You say " Believe and rest in the Gospel" 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (I do) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: I understood this, and believed this, forty plus years ago. Was that not enough? I've said before, I believe the Sabbath is holy, and Sunday, along with all the other days. Every day is the day the Lord has made. To be worshiping God!
  6. Ah, If Christ said it, that settles it. period! Weather you, or I, believe it................................
  7. Hai! Well done is better than Well said!
  8. “Yeshua” is the Hebrew word for “Jesus.” The name means “to rescue, to save, or to deliver.” OK, No freewill. Ok, so Yeshua153, are you going to make it to heaven (however you believe) as by fire, or are you going to bring your sheaves with you (as scripture indicates)? And your crowns to lay before the Lord? Or your good works etc? Will the Lord say to you "Well done Yeshua153" ? If you answered yes to any of these, why? If we do not have any free will, then you couldn't choose to do the right thing (righteousness) We would never hear a "Well done" because we would not have the capacity. Oh, that's right, Not I but Christ in me. OK. So then a "Well done" really goes back to God, right? So why/how would God ever be angry at us, as is spoken in scripture. Why would there be scripture speaking of God being pleased with someone, or group of people. If it was not them who choose to do what is right? Or wrong? Seems to me the only way I can think of is we choose to do right or wrong. Does choosing sorta indicate a will to do right, or to do wrong? A free will????? actually choosing???? Explain how this works please, as I have never heard an explanation from those who say we have no free will.
  9. ....... "Thy word have I hid in mine heart (read/study/memorize), that I might not sin (application) against thee" Psalm 119:11-16 Keep it simple... To know what to do is good. Doing it is better. "Well done is better than well said"
  10. No Place Like Home! But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 'Even when' we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" Ephesians 2, 4-6
  11. After thirty years growing up in RCC, a faithful brother planted a seed and I got saved and left that church, and all it's rules and archaic traditions. I do not want to enter another. You say I should observe the sabbath, right Justin? How should I do that? (really)I have heard that it is impossible today, without all doing the rest of the observances. Honestly, if our church started having services on Saturday, I reckon I would still go. But it would change nothing. Just my schedule. I would not bring turtle doves to the service, nor any of the other hundreds of rules. You and others like minded only confuse the minds and hearts of myself, and others who just want to serve the Lord. Leaving the RCC, and finding (being found) by Jesus *** oops *** did I just call my Lord and Savior a wrong/bad name??? As a believer in the Savior of the world (His name withheld due to confusion) today I find out I should not worship on a certain day, (the mark of the beast day), and I cannot call my Savior Jesus. ANYMORE. I just cannot please everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However. I'm doing my utmost to please God. Jesus Christ!!and HIM crucified! AS I HAVE DETERMINED THE TRUTH! I'm responsible for my actions and will be held accountable. And all I have taught my daughters, and son, and others. When I cry out to the one I call 'Jesus', I know God the Father's only begotten son heard me! When I go to a body of believers to fellowship, pray and study, sing and worship, I believe God is pleased. No matter the day of the week. MY belief, my responsibility. If I'm wrong, so be it.! If I'm right, who cares. (Will I lose my salvation?)
  12. Dude, you had me goin till close to the end, and what sweet irony...........
  13. His 'Holy Day" is today, the day the Lord has made. I rejoice. Every day is Holy. I will not waste your time nor mine, as to what I believe. " One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind" (as you said, like Paul) Believe what you will, and beat your chest and raise your hands in your perfect understanding of God's mind. As a sinner saved by grace, I try to avoid rehashing this topic that leads to non Christlike emotions, towards other believers. The topic, or OP, is about what is the "proper" name we should call God's only begotten Son. Here we're now discussing which day is 'proper to worship'. And the enemy is laughing at us, having created more strife amongst the brethren. And for this I apologize to you and others viewing. I'll sign off now, go out to my shop, and do some constructive work. May God bless you, Betha.
  14. Then why are you people here on this heathen forum, where the majority of 'believers' worship on Sunday, as you call the mark of the beast. Is this your calling from God, confronting us to our heathen ways? My brother fell into the seventh day ellen white debacle, and he and his church now pray for my families heathen Sunday worshipers. I worship my Savior every day, in all I do, as unto the Lord. He resides in me in His temple. My walk, my witness, my obedience, is my worship. NOT the day of a week, not a building.
  15. "We live in a society that competes among ourselves to be somebody special. In the course of that competition, it is decided who will lead and who will follow The followers commit themselves to the leaders expecting to be part of a group that is "something special" Even though they are followers, "they are part of the rebellion against God that began with the first man, Adam" Perhaps I simply have misunderstood your meaning, Walter. "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might" (God) Growing up, I was taught to always do the best I can, by my parents, teachers, coaches, bosses, company commander, etc. And then there were times that I did lead, if I was good enough, worked hard enough, burned the midnight oil while others slept. This does nor preclude my Christian character, humility, or a lack of concern for others, no more than my pastor who worked hard and excelled through theological seminary. (He is special!) I have seen many a Olympic medalist with a very humble demeanor/character. (Also special) Any action has the risk/opportunity for good or evil. High or low achievers included. I have a very inspiring book called "My utmost for His Highest" - Oswald Chambers, (He's Very special) read and reread more than any other book, save the bible. As the title reveals, it is about running the race, striving to the utmost, in our walk, all as "Unto the Lord". In whatsoever we do, as we are a testimony to others. I know I'm somebody special. My creator died for me. (and I'm humbled) Think on that. And called me friend. (and I'm humbled) You too, Walter and Deborah. Your very special! "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time" Special; = "better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual "........... We have been 'set apart'(special) by God! The lost rebellious world doesn't have the corner on "special people" Work harder than others. Pray harder than others. Give more than others. With all your might! "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might"
