  1. Yes, so true. All things worldly are coming together in the name of "love", to be that "inclusive unity" that you speak of. The time is here and not coming per say, that if you are not in agreement with the values that is portrayed, you are snubbed and considered a "hater". So, now, you cannot disagree in public about your beliefs as to the non gender movements and the rest of Satan wicked manipulation of society. Yeh, as you say. We better really know what is going on. The days are evil, very evil. And yes, you have been blowing the horn a long time now. Don't stop.
  2. Are you casting stones brother. Do you not read what I said. "willful". So here is the question for you ?. Do you ever sin, not even once ?. Let me narrow it down. Did you sin once in the last year ?. Also. Did not the Lord teach believers how to pray as an example and mentioned we should forgive so that we would be forgiven of what ?
  3. You see, you really could not answer the question as you know perfectly well that you do ask the Lord to forgive you for your shortcomings . Pride is at the issue here sir. You have to put it aside and humble yourself, as you can do nothing of your own. Yes and I agree that the Holy Spirit is there to help us in our weakness, but it is with the mouth that we confess and the heart we believe. I do hope you are confessing your sins to one another and praying for the sick if they may have committed any sins as James is instructing. A believer do not live in willful sin and wallow in it, but he is still is surrounded by the elements of the world. We cannot be to proud and puff up that we can be perfect in all we do. James 5 King James Version (KJV) 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
  4. Ok. The question still remains though, do you ever ask to be forgiven when you offer up your prayers and meditations and for what ?.
  5. Well you have no need to ask for forgiveness as you never sin as you are perfect. So, when you offer up your prayer, do you ask to be forgiven and if so for what ?. Matthew 6 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven ([e]left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have [f]given up resentment against) our debtors. 13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 14 For if you forgive people their trespasses [their [g]reckless and willful sins, [h]leaving them, letting them go, and [i]giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their [j]reckless and willful sins, [k]leaving them, letting them go, and [l]giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses.
  6. Then you just don't understand what Grace really means. He has told no one to go and sin. Every believer has to study the word and examine it for themselves, pray and seek the Lord wisdom for his guidance . The bible speaks volume on sin and its avoidance. He is not saying that we should not go and sin willy nilly and still be a spirit filled believer. No, the man who does so is not saved to begin with. The human condition is that we are not perfect and and everyone would have to give his personal accountability as no one can fool his creator. But we have an advocate that when we do err, we can go to him with confidence . So then, you have no reason now to ask God to forgive you of anything, as you follow the law perfectly, isn't it. Your prayer should not include anything of asking for forgiveness as you do no wrong, you obey perfectly. Examine yourself man with this foolishness.
  7. As it is written in scripture below . This is the start of your born again or new creation as a believer in Jesus Christ. Now, your heart is the thing that no man here can know and only you can sincerely examine as to the truth of your belief. After you have made your personal belief in your heart, the bible is the next step you have to seek and mediate on the teachings of the Gospel and to know the plans God has for you. As so go along, habits and the things that you were attached as a carnal man would start to fade and the reality of the truths in the word becomes more clear. Now, you have to learn and understand clearly,that in this world, we have a tremendous enemy named the devil and he is real. He will do all that he can to cause you to go back to your old ways and to keep you from following the teachings of the word to live a fruitful life in the Lord. You must fight though, as to the struggles that you have, you have to continue to war against all that he throws at you and call upon the Lord to help you as he knows your weaknesses. The war or fight is not of flesh and blood, but with the spiritual host of wickedness in high places as stated in the bible and which I have confirmed in my walk as so true. see Ephesians 6. Read this chapter to get an understanding of what the believer is up against. So indeed there is a spiritual realm where the real battles take place and you have to keep renewing your mind with the word which is sword to cut the enemies lies whom seek to bring you back into his fold. Prayer is vital to make your request known to God and praise and thanks and worship to him that has paid for your salvation is due to the Lord Jesus Christ. I recommend this book that is also a good inspiration to be faithful. "Holiness" by J.C Ryle. It can be downloaded free in pdf format . Just type in the title and name and follow the link to download. Romans 10 King James Version (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
  8. There are many ways to say the same things in most cases I would think. Some use raw language, which may not be the right approach, but nevertheless, it is their way of proclaiming what they preach. Does the below conclude the same thing or not. It is the gospel. John 3 King James Version (KJV) 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
  9. I appreciate your forthright reply. Thanks. Verse 17 that follows showed us who we are now that we are saved. The believer is unique from the unsaved in that he now knows the reality and truth of the gospel which speaks to his heart and convicts him of the truth. Once he know this truth, it pricks his conscience with the help of the Holy Spirit to follow the path of righteousness . He becomes stronger as this truth takes hold of his life . Yes the world the flesh and the devil would be there to tug at his heart to pull him back into the mire, but the truth is embedded in his soul that he now takes up the full armor of God and wages war with the spiritual host of wickedness in high places. As the troubles and trials comes, it further strengthens him to press on, there is no turning back. This is the believer. He is molded and through the sufferings and trials he endures. The fate of the unsaved is known to him and yes, the Holy fear of the Lord reminds him that he has to strive to stay on the right path and to encourages others to do so, which builds his faith even more. The Lord is not asleep, but sees his struggles and trials and helps him to mature. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
  10. Your topic statement seems a bit misleading as if to say that is all that is preached . The whole gospel has to be preached and this includes the reality of those who die without Jesus Christ as their savior. A good sermon would point to that very fact and would have men heart riveted not with fear as such, but the future of his existence as a soul. It will start with the introduction of sin and how every man was born in the state he is in and it will progress to show that the rejection of the salvation of his soul would ultimately lead to the place named in the bible as Hell. As the saying goes, bitter medicine is hard to swallow, but it is necessary to get the cure.
  11. Romans 6 has to read in its entirety to really understand what happens when a man is saved. It is not just walking up to the alter and repeating a prayer of confession of sins, but something that took place in the heart. Believers, believe in their hearts and confess with their tongue that Jesus Christ is Lord and that he died for their sins. They now see the sin nature that they have within and the one who paid for those sins. It is spelled out in Roman. Sin has no more dominion over you. You are now a spiritual warrior as you now know the truth and reality of the host of wickedness that are perpetrators of evil and who does his manipulations or play with your mind to get you back into his world. Now, when you resist the reality of the gospel come to light as you hear and read of the written word. The issue that separates man from God is "unbelief that Jesus is Lord". Once a man has been granted that grace, he would go through the trials of life that the devil and his dominion would put him through for him to come back. Since he now knows the truth and that he is loved and his sins we paid for, he strives to follow the Lord and his heart is converted to follow the word. There is no turning back, this is the believer. His burdens are at the Lord feet and he rest in his mercies and this is what is meant by saving grace in short. How do you interpret Romans 7 and Paul struggle as a believer. Why did he wrote that ?. Yes, as you say rightly, context has to be read and examined as to the whole statement. Romans 6 King James Version (KJV) 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
  12. When a believer is born again, something profound has taken place in his life. Have you not read in scripture, that he now has the Holy Spirit to guide, teach and convict him when he goes contrary to the word. It is a living experience that is true to him and as he goes along, hearing and studying the word, he draws closer to the righteousness that the Lord so taught him to attain. It is by Christ righteousness we are made righteous and not on our own, we can never achieve that on our own. You seem to place a lot of guilt on the church. The onus for a man to walk upright before the Lord is on him as it is he that will face his maker to answer for his life on that day. Study to be approved. What are we encouraged to be like, not like the Bereans. The born again believer has the statues written on his hearts and as his heart is changed, walks in this newness of life, striving to do what is right in the sight of the Lord. Some take the path of counting the beads on a chain all day and reciting vain repetitions ect,, but the believer has the guide and teacher within him to guide him along the way. The believer is a spiritual man and has to use his spiritual gifts to help him along the journey. The word of God instructs and teaches us as to God will and each believer has to follow and abide in his own heart. Acts 17:11 King James Version (KJV) 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
  13. What rubbish. Do you think we were left here to fend for ourselves with no help. You quoted Romans 8:24. Just two verses below that verse shows us that we have guidance to live life with divine help and. God do intercede for his children and helps us to walk upright in this world. Yes, we have hope, which is the faith that we are saved by the grace of God to live according to his will. It's written below. So, believers has confidence as he live with the knowledge and practical experience that his life is being sanctified and he himself is a witness to it. Romans 8 King James Version (KJV) 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
  14. This is the supernatural world that exists and is real as to your testimony. Many believers has doubts about these things taking place and yes even in a believers life. What type each believer goes through, I believer the Lord has allowed for his purpose. I have mentioned in past post about the spiritual realm and that battles goes on there just like the physical, just we don't see them . Yes, it is trying and wears on our mind and body, but you have to stand firm on the word and the promises of God. You know the word and the truth and you have to keep it deep in your mind and also remind yourself that you are saved and your life is in the hands of Jesus Christ. The battle is for the mind and soul, and the devil wants you to come back into his dominion and to his world of the old man. You must stand and be faithful and the Lord would see you through. How long, only the Lord knows, but you cannot give in, but fight the good fight of faith. Remember, we do not fight against flesh and blood , but the spiritual host of wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12.. Do not think you are alone in these battles, others are too, but are afraid or timid to share. I can testify to spiritual things too, but of a different nature, nevertheless, they are battles and only the Lord knows why each individual is given or allowed these battles , like the man JOB.
  15. Take up your quarrel with your maker. How terrible it will be for anyone who argues with their Maker! They are like a broken piece of pottery lying on the ground. Does clay say to a potter, “What are you making?” Does a pot say, “The potter doesn’t have any skill”? 10 How terrible it will be for anyone who says to a father, “Why did you give me life?” How terrible for anyone who says to a mother, “Why have you brought me into the world?” 11 The Lord is the Holy One of Israel. He made them. He says to them, “Are you asking me about what will happen to my children? Are you telling me what I should do with what my hands have made? 12 I made the earth. I created human beings to live there.
