  1. First of all, don't put words in my mouth. Second, the person you described as me judging never claimed to me to be a Christian. I don't even know them. Therefore, I wouldn't be making a judgement regarding their faith, nor their fruit. That is where you err when you make assumptions and put words into people's mouths or assume to know their intent by reading something into what is written. Since you addressed me specifically, I will do the same to you. I have noticed that you have a tendency to try and put words into people's mouths and read things into what is written. Instead of trying to interpret what people mean, (me specifically since you addressed me specifically), perhaps you should take things literally. I don't write cryptically and there is no hidden meaning in my words. I say what I mean and mean what I say. So please, in the future, keep me out of you mouth (typing) and your postings. Thank you and have a blessed day.
  2. I would almost guarantee that these "leaks" are not coming from Trump loyalists but by the left over career government employees, who are Democratic in their majority and left over from the last Democratic administrations. When will Trump learn and sack or reassign these people who are intent on preventing the current Administration from succeeding in it's policy shift? Drain the swamp!!!
  3. As OneLight pointed, scripture tells us that "We will know them by their fruit." I believe that we are to question the faith of someone who claims to be a brother or sister in Christ, but, we are to do it within ourselves, to ourselves. Then we can choose whether to interact with them as a fellow believer or as a non-believer. Questioning someone's faith is not the same as questioning their doctrine. If they are teaching any other doctrine than Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, then I believe that we are to call them out publically.
  4. We need to remember that there are many Obummer hold-overs still in positions of power and influence. Until President Trump is able to drain the cesspool of socialist/communist Muslim sympathizers from those positions, things will be business-as-usual. That is why there are so many leaks coming out of the WH and why there is so much resistance to President Trump's policy changes right now.
  5. We have to remember that we have a secular government and that the President represents all Americans, of all religions. With that in mind, it is each of us, individually, who should represent all true Christians. It is not logical to expect any modern-day American President to "represent" all Christians since there are so many different "Christian" denominations with different systems.
  6. And I agree with you on this part. Yet, being Born Again means more than loving your neighbor. You said (or intimated) that there is more than one way to enter Heaven and to gain salvation and I say there is only one way. And that is through faith in the Finished Work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. If I am incorrect in what you said in your OP, please set me straight and I apologize if that is the case.
  7. Nope. That's what you are teaching does. I don't debate this issue because no one ever changes their mind on this. Good luck working to keep your salvation. Hope you can figure out when you have done enough and nothing happens to you before you can ask GOD for forgiveness of your sins; again. I will trust GOD's own words (taken in context and inspired by the Holy Spirit) to keep mine.
  8. This is a false interpretation of Scripture. Please, if you will, read the many topic on Once Saved Always Saved to read the Scriptures that support this. Or don't, since you probably have already read them and won't be persuaded otherwise like most who hold that one can lose their salvation because GOD made a mistake by giving it to you in the first place - knowing that you didn't really mean it.
  9. Jesus said that in order to enter the Kingdom of GOD, you must be Born Again. That is the only way; through Faith in the Completed Work of Christ on the Cross. Anyone can be saved, as long as they are, once again, Born Again. There is no other way. Welcome to Worthy.
  10. sin

  11. sin

    No. "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." 1 John 1:8 (KJV) But: "If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9 (KJV) That puts us back into fellowship with HIM.
  12. I start at Genesis and read 5 chapters a day. Usually out by the pool, lying on my lounge chair on my face. Good way to tan my back as my lounge chair has an open space for my face.
  13. That depends on whether the Church is preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ or of humanism.
  14. Genesis Chapter One is GOD's point of view; Genesis Chapter 2 is from Adam's point of view. I doubt if you will be able to convince them of this as people who don't want to believe that the Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and is GOD's Word will never be convinced until they are driven to Repentance by the Holy Spirit.
