    what is true love according to you?

    Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. (Joh 15:13) and yet... For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom 5:6-8) Welcome to Worthy Sonamadnani
  3. They believed Jonah's message and repented, so God will be merciful to those believing the Gospel of His Son and turning from their own ways.
  4. Illegal is illegal. My parents had to go through the legal process when coming from Canada and Europe. It's the duty of the Executive branch to enforce the laws that the Legislative Branch creates.
  5. WASHINGTON, April 27, 2018 (BP) — A fourth of self-identified Christians don’t believe fully in the biblical description of God, Pew Research Center said in its latest study. Rather, 25 percent of American Christians believe in what Pew described as “God or another higher power” who is not necessarily all-loving, omniscient and omnipotent as Scripture reveals. “In total, three-quarters of U.S. Christians believe that God possesses all three of these attributes — that the deity is loving, omniscient and omnipotent,” Pew found in the study of about 4,750 Americans released April 25. Eighty percent of Christians told Pew they believe in the biblical God, but not all of them believed in the three godly characteristics Pew identified. Other biblical characteristics of God, such as mercy and grace, were not specified in the study’s questions. Many of those who described themselves as Christians are confused about who God is and what qualifies a person as Christian, Southern Baptist theologian R. Albert Mohler Jr. said in the April 26 edition of his podcast, The Briefing. “Here we are being told that a significant number of those who identify as Christians say that they don’t believe in the God of the Bible,” Mohler said. “Some of them, even if just 1 percent, when we’re talking about the numbers involved here, say that they are Christians, but they don’t believe in any higher power at all. “It means, by the way, that not only are they not Christians, they’re not even theists,” Mohler said of self-described Christians who don’t even believe in a higher power. Most Christians, 93 percent, believe “God or another higher power in the universe” loves all people regardless of their faults, 87 percent believe God is omniscient or all-knowing, and 78 percent believe God is omnipotent or all-powerful. The 75 percent of Christians who said they believe in all three of the identified characteristics of the biblical God was higher than the total found in the greater population, 56 percent of which reported such a belief. In all, 90 percent of Americans believe in a higher power not necessarily described as the biblical God. Pew conducted the study of 4,729 participants in its American Trends Panel Dec. 5-18, 2017, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.3 percentage points. The study group is considered nationally representative. Among other findings: — 91 percent of black Protestants and 87 percent of white evangelicals believe God has all three traits, compared to 62 percent of mainline Protestants and 61 percent of Catholics. — 56 percent of Jews and 53 percent of religiously unaffiliated “nones” told Pew they don’t believe in the biblical God but do believe in a higher power or spiritual force in the universe. –75 percent of American adults, including Christians and the general population, say they try to talk to God, but not all of them consider the conversations the same as prayer. — 39 percent of Americans who said they never or seldom pray said they talk to God just the same. — 3 percent of agnostics say they believe in the biblical God. — In the general population, non-white Democrats — mostly African Americans and Hispanics — more closely resemble Republicans than white Democrats in their perceptions of a biblical God. The survey did not include enough Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus or members of other minority religious groups to permit separate analyses of their beliefs, Pew researchers said. The full study is available at pewforum.org. https://xpian.news/2018/04/30/pew-25-of-surveys-christians-dont-buy-biblical-god/ Goes to show that not all who sez they is one...is one.
  6. God is able to be merciful to us sinners because of Jesus sacrifice.

    John 5:28-29 NKJV [28] Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice [29] and come forth-those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

    Whatever the person did, copy and paste or whatever, the point is you aren't able to refute the points made, but instead hold ever tighter to your Shack book.
  10. Now for the 'rest of the story'... Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound) That sav'd a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears reliev'd; How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believ'd! Thro' many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come; 'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home. The Lord has promis'd good to me, His word my hope secures; He will my shield and portion be As long as life endures. Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease; I shall possess, within the veil, A life of joy and peace. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine; But God, who call'd me here below, Will be forever mine. John Newton, Olney Hymns, 1779

    Hebrews 12:2 NKJV [2] looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    Welcome to Worthy Liz... 1 John 1:1-4 NKJV [1] That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life- [2] the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us- [3] that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. [4] And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.

    That an unlimited God had to be born here to die...

    What's it matter? That is what is revealed to sin soaked, marred in the wool, finite, fallen humans whose intelligence has evolved to the point where they can no longer tell male from female.

    First point. Please show me in Scripture where we read "The Father died for our sins". or "The Father was crucified for our sins".
