  1. Well some people believe that He only died for some, this doesn't seem to go with 1 John 2:2. I'm learning and I'm leaning towards that He died for everyone.
  2. 1 John 2:2 would seem to suggest that Christ died for everyone, how could he have only died for some?
  3. Not to say that you are wrong but I may have been told by GotQuestions.org that Jesus did not receive the wrath of God. Maybe it's causing some sort of logical inconsistency in my mind with regards to what is correct. Maybe this is happening for more than this issue.
  4. I think this could be incorrect because I'm stumbling. It might be helpful if I could sit down and talk to someone who is really patient and understands Scripture deeply.
  5. Ok, this is where I might need some help. Jesus shed his blood to take the punishment for our sins, correct? Does that mean He took the wrath of God for us? Because people who aren't saved receive the wrath of God, correct?
  6. But you must at least know what you need to know in order to be saved though, right?
  7. I've been having experiences that cause me uncertainty as to whether I'm saved. I don't want to share about it on this forum right now though. I think there might be an understanding gap as well, as I've kind of been gather knowledge for awhile but maybe I don't have enough knowledge to believe. Also I think I might have been told conflicting things, such as Jesus taking the wrath of God on the cross and Jesus not taking the wrath of God on the cross, which may not seem like a big deal but for me maybe it is. Maybe I'm the type of person who needs to have a solid understanding before I'm saved. Also I've gone back and forth "in faith" even recently which I guess leads to the uncertainty that maybe I'm someone who can't be saved, although right now I am pursuing faith and being saved. I guess I can say that Jesus died for my sins because of 1 John 2:2 though?
  8. Please pray for my salvation. For my understanding that Jesus died for my sins and that I haven't blasphemed the Holy Spirit.
  9. Is it supposed to be to all people unconditionally or only to people who repent and ask? The reason I ask is because I might have read in a GotQuestions question and answer that you're only supposed to forgive if someone repents and asks (might not have gotten that right) and it's not supposed to be unconditional and for everyone. Right now though I'm going with unconditional forgiveness and for everyone.
  10. Does anyone think that God the Father and God the Son (Jesus) have a relationship similar to those between earthly fathers and sons?
  11. The Trinity is as follows, correct? First Person: God the Father Second Person: God the Son (Jesus) Third Person: God the Holy Spirit When Jesus is referred to as the Son of God it means Jesus is the Son of God the Father and the second person of the Trinity, correct?
  12. Entombed might be an appropriate word, but 1 Corinthians 15:4 in the NIV ESV and KJV all say buried.
  13. I might be having trouble believing in my heart what I need to believe in order to be saved due to being unable to effectively understand everything I need to understand (I guess maybe first in my head and then after that believe it with my heart). If people wanted to sum it up for me or explain it it might be helpful.
  14. Is it correct to look at salvation this way? That we've accrued a debt through our sins which must be paid with our death and eventual place in the lake of fire and that Jesus has completely paid our debt with His death and shed blood on the cross and that He was buried and rose again on the third day and that through faith in Him and what He's done (His death and shed blood on the cross, His burial, and His resurrection on the third day) we are saved?
  15. I'm dealing with my salvation and I guess I might be trying to make sure I'm looking at things right.
  16. Would it be accurate for me to say that Jesus took the punishment for my sins with His death on the cross? Would believing He did that, and that He was buried, and that He rose again on the third day, and that He was the Son of God be enough to be saved? Is there anything else I should be bearing in mind?
  17. When you write Son of God do you mean Son of God the Father? If so, was Jesus always the Son of God the Father?
  18. "I'm saved because Jesus paid my sin-debt with His death on the cross."
  19. Would it be correct to say that Jesus was punished for our sins?
  20. I have another question about wording. Would it be correct to say that Jesus was punished for our sins?
  21. So within the Godhead there is the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. Was Jesus always the Son of God, or did He become the Son of God when He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary? And when the term Son of God is used is it meaning Jesus is the Son of God the Father? Also, when someone affirms that Jesus is the Son of God are they saying that Jesus is the Son of God the Father? Edit: Just to make clear I'm aware that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are God and all three are eternal as one God, none being created.
