  1. Jesus said 4 times in John 14 ... Those who love Me will obey My commandments. WHO gets into heaven who doesn't love Jesus? People don't understand what the NT word "believe" really means! True saving belief = enduring to the end of life ... faith, trust, obedience, practicing righteousness, etc. EVERYTHING I have written here is backed up by NT verses! ANYTHING you don't agree with ... just ask for the verses! ------------------------------------------------------
  2. Okay, this is just a simple matter of you guys ignoring and/or rejecting MANY dire warnings in the epistles (not to mention those in the Gospels). You guys have been deceived by apostate churches, which has left you spiritually deaf, dumb, and blind. Paul made it extremely clear that BACs have been set free from the bondage of sin and are NO longer slaves of sin! However, they can CHOOSE to continue to habitually sin. No one with unrepentant sin will be allowed into heaven to be with a holy God throughout eternity (and that includes you).
  3. God has called me to WARN those who think they are saved, but have been deceived (as in 2 posts back). Haven't you noticed ALL of the conditional "IF" verses in the NT?
  4. Please provide the NT verses which you are interested in.
  5. Those who go on to do what is right have the acceptable heart attitude before God, and are probably being obedient, practicing righteousness, etc. which are very sure indications that one is indeed truly saved. However, I have been called to WARN ... those BACs who are NOT doing these "proof" things because they probably have been deceived into believing in such false doctrines as grace-only, hyper-grace, easy-believism, etc.
  6. Everywhere I go, I get attacked personally (verbally) due to doctrinal issues. This is how powerfully the church has been deceived & brainwashed with false doctrine!
  7. Sorry, pretty much the whole of the NT disagrees with you! As a matter of fact ... God has me focusing on ALL of the many dire warnings! If you desire details, just ask.
  8. Many thanks! ... May the Lord bless you and yours!
  9. Let’s start here … even though this verse is about non-believers who cannot “see” the Truth of the gospel message: “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe.” (1 Corinthians 4:4) Satan has the “power” to cause BACs to be “blind” in some areas! “he is a master of deception and the father of lies!” (John 8:44) Satan is able to blind some BACs (including pastors) from seeing various spiritual Truths, or there wouldn’t be so many warnings about: ● being deceived ● habitual (unrepentant) sinning ● falling away from the faith ● being estranged from Christ ● falling from grace ● drawing back to perdition ● not inheriting the kingdom of God ● not being allowed into the New Jerusalem ● being blotted out of the Book of Life, etc. Apparently, many BACs do NOT “see” the dire warnings written in the NT. Some BACs (including pastors) DO see them, but refuse to accept them! But, let’s look at those BACs who REALLY ARE “blind” to God’s warnings. What can cause BACs to be spiritually blind about the Truth and about God’s warnings? ● HIDDEN WARNINGS ● In the epistles, warnings are “somewhat hidden” amongst everything else, including many edifications, encouragements, exhortations, etc. Compounding this, Paul usually wrote with extreme tact so he would still be welcome to visit the churches that he founded. Also, the Lord did not want these warnings to upset the babes in Christ. ● ETERNAL SECURITY DOCTRINE ● This popular doctrine has caused many believers to feel dangerously safe and secure. To others, this doctrine has an opposite effect: they have appreciated what God has done for them so much that their great love for Him has caused them to be willing to obey His commandments. Praise God, those BACs who are actually seeking after righteousness certainly can feel eternally secure! ● HYPER-GRACE DOCTRINE ● God’s free gift of GRACE gives new believers absolutely everything! It is also God’s power to make BACs into what He wants them to be! … However, they must co-operate with Him! The popular doctrines of today: grace-only, hyper-grace, etc. teach that BACs have NO responsibility or accountability for their salvation. This is obviously false! One simple example of the many “conditional” type of verses in the NT is: “I declare to you the gospel … by which you are saved, IF you hold fast that word which I preached to you – unless you believed in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-2). ● DECEIVED PASTORS ● Many pastors are deceived into believing some of the false doctrines above. These shepherds are failing in their duty to warn their sheep concerning things which are vital to their spiritual well-being! The blood of the sheep who don’t make it (who have NOT been warned about their responsibilities) will be on the hands of their pastors … no matter what the pastors’ reasons/excuses are! Believe it or not God is still warning His people through His prophets and watchmen! But, His people need to be OPEN to hear His warnings! A small excerpt from one of His warnings given in 2018: “shepherds leading multitudes to hell”.
  10. Unfortunately, you have NOT come to the realization ... from reading the NT and being taught by the precious Holy Spirit ... that the ridiculous one little word "believe" in the NT means so much more than intellectual belief, or even a deep heart-felt belief-faith! Just for starters, it must also include obedience! True saving belief-faith includes enduring in the faith, obedience, etc.
  11. How do I go back 140 posts to where I left off? You people must be a whole lot smarter than poor I am. Errrr, I'm not sayin', I AM.
  12. The NT is incredibly clear through many verses: Salvation is a process!
  13. Sorry, this is the only Christian forum I know of that doesn't provide us with post numbers! So, I am lost ... and cannot find where I left off. If anyone would care to re-post in my direction, I am here now!
  14. “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28) These were predestined, called, justified, and glorified (8:29-30). Those who truly love God obey Him by resisting temptations to sin! “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.” (James 1:12) Believers who endure temptation: ● love God ● chose to be obedient to Jesus (see below) ● will receive the crown of (eternal) life “Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death. So, don’t be misled, my dear brothers and sisters.” (James 1:14-16) Believers who do NOT endure temptation: ● will fall into habitual sin ● will receive spiritual (eternal) death … UNLESS they sincerely repent (stop their habitual sinning). Those who really love Jesus obey Him “Those who accept My commandments and obey them are the ones who love Me.” (John 14:21) “All who love Me will do what I say.” (John 14:23) “Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me.” (John 14:24) “When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love” (John 15:10) “You are my friends, if you do what I command.” (John 15:14) Who gets to heaven who does not love Jesus, who is not His friend, and who does not obey His commandments? Slaves of sin -- OR -- slaves of obedience “… if you present yourselves to anyone as as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either (slaves) of sin which leads to (eternal) death, OR (slaves) of obedience leading too righteousness?” (Romans 6:16) “… anyone who obeys my teachings will never die!” (John 8:51) “if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.” (Matthew 19:17) “So, you must live as God’s obedient children.” (1 Peter 1:14) “Only those who fear the Lord and keep His commandments have life with God. But there is NO (eternal) life in those who do not keep His commandments.” (from “The Shepherd of Hermas”, which was quoted as Scripture by early Christian leaders such as Irenaeus, Origen, and Clement of Alexandria)
