  1. Pelagianism

    Eph 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. the whole bible is written to the brethren. if we were not free will beings would God have said thou shall not? would it be just to give judgment? did lucifer birth wickedness in his own heart or did God do that for him? God does not desire even one should perish. the original scripture was directed to the believers, but to be humble weather another is or is not "in ministry" if you take time to study it you will see the words are different earlier and later in the scripture for every man. the latter is superlative. furthermore, so that no one could boast that anything to do with their faith was of themselves. but the bible says God is not a respecter of persons. and you claim to some He gives faith for salvation ad others He does not? And while we were sinners Christ died? i could tell you that i believe what you claim is heinous and blasphemous also. but I wont. it wont do any good. perhaps if you try being more open minded we could have more than a one sided convo, and hash it out.
  2. And what would your common sense approach be?

    two years? welcome to the club.
  4. Is Yoga evil?

    the devil trys to put a smiley face sticker on everything. look at the positions of yoga. look carefully. its not about stretching at all. if you are going to stretch your muscles, call it stretching. if you are going to contort yourself in positions that represent submission to spirits, specifically the kundalini spirit, then its yoga. yoga is a form of worshiping unclean spirits.
  5. prosperity. you know what a shepherd does with a sheep that keeps straying? He breaks its leg. there is a way to do it where it will heal and be ok. the sheep senses its weakness and sticks close to the shepherd for protection.... which is good.
  6. when you catch a fish do you take it to the house before you clean it? not one person can cleanse someone of sin like Jesus does. let God do His thing, and we do ours. When i first got saved i used to smoke pot before i went to church. I was saved, and had a relationship with God. But until God told me no, i didnt know better. some people are not close enough or havent walked far enough with God to know. its not our place to judge someone elses relationship with God. it is our place to love them.

    yes. Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. God does not push Himself on anyone. I say that and yet i was apprehended. I didnt call out to Him. I wanted no part of God. Years back, in county jail God came to me. Questions began to pop in my mind like what good is my life doing... what good am i doing in others lives. the answer was nothing, none, nothing, im not. then i saw how dirty i really was. i could barely breathe with this tremendous weight on me. that is when i chose not to do certain things anymore, like victimize people. it was then i felt the weight lift and inside i was glowing. I could have chose to go the other way. anyone can choose that at anytime. even you. but why would you once someone has tasted of His goodness. the above scripture is not just "to the church" as many will claim. it says every man. everyone gets a fair shot. why? Because God is a Just Judge. if there was even one person who was not given the measure of faith unto salvation, on judgment day they would have excuse.
  8. Allah is the devil. The angel that appeared to Mohammad was a fallen angel. the Holy bible says in 2 cor: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. there is no peace in any muslim land. so much for a religion of peace. there is no freedom. who is it that comes to steal kill and destroy? the enemy. there is no quran and the bible. there is no universal god or truth. there is no other name that salvation can be obtained other than Jesus Christ.

    everyone gets the measure of faith unto salvation. The gift of faith is a gift of The Holy Spirit and usually runs with gift of miracles and healing. but the gift of faith for salvation everyone gets it. have you not read that God does not desire that even one should perish... that its His good pleasure to give us the kingdom? If some are predestined to live eternally then some are predestined for hell. this contradicts what the bible says about God. And one of the founding points of Calvinism is that if one point is wrong, its all wrong. Dont look at theology which is man made. it cant save you. it cant deliver you in time of trouble. who is calvin? who is the other guy? now I ask you, who is Jesus Christ? You wanna seek truth? The Word of God is THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH. Seek His face, not calvin, or Armenian types. Read Deuteronomy 30 and see what it says about free will. It says God sets before us life and death... it even says choose life. in the garden of eden there was two trees with enough importance to be named. a choice to be made? oh yes. but you dont have to go somewhere because God made us with free will. its not like you are gonna catch the cooties from me because i believe in free will.
  10. When someone asks me for money, i ask them, did you eat today. If they say no, i buy them food and give them food. i did it once when i knew they guy was drunk. There are ways around having your money squandered, and still be able to look in the mirror and say, i did love them. Besides all my money goes to my sweetness and babies. I am doing very well when i can keep new boots on my feet.

  12. do you support illegal immigration? Because whether a fence or a wall is moot. the point is 97% 97%. I bet them Hungarians don't care one way or the other if its a fence or a wall. what they have to be glad about is 97%. thats ninety seven percent. that gives me hope.
  13. Why is accountability not a bad thing?

    Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. proverbs 27:17 being accountable to someone else is good because if we trust ourselves only, well, you might just stumble, and fall in a pit. We are supposed to be our brothers keeper. And that's just being a good neighbor. The focus isnt what you want, that is serving self. The focus is I need this accountability because i will have better success at living How Jesus says too. Bottom line... you really can not trust yourself... The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jer17:9 Proverbs 24:5-6 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength. For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
