  1. I would love to see your quiz....sounds like a great tool! Do you take VISA? Lol......
  2. Not that I think it matters that much, but I usually bookend them.....God knows my mind and heart Yes....I suppose you could call them “mini” prayers......whatever the tag, they get max results.....it is not my nature to brag,but for some reason God answers all my prayers....it is uncanny- the modern day chief of sinners ,blessed beyond belief......God bless.
  3. I humbly thank you for one of the best compliments one could ask for......Saints be praised ! Lol
  4. Paul says to “pray without ceasing”...... I never set a time for prayer.I never put any time limits on it. Since being saved, prayer is an all day, ongoing conversation with Him.Its like having a good friend,right by your side and you talk back and forth all day.I really have nothing to do with it , it just came naturally with the Salvation package, to put it poorly.
  5. The Law is not the way to achieve righteousness .....if that is true, Christ died for nothing......The only “righteousness” Anybody will ever be able to claim is the “imputed” righteousness given to all of those that believe in the Gospel and it alone for Salvation.Paul prayed for his fellow Jews that were lost.Why? They were trying to establish their own right- standing before God By obedience to the Law. That obedience is a great thing, but it will not save anyone.NOTHING but the Blood for Salvation.Telling God about all the good things you did will prompt God to say “ depart from me, I never knew you”. It ain’t about you or your performance, it’s about Him and HIS PERFORMENCE and your faith in THAT alone which saves you. God bless.
  6. Working iniquity is not trusting the Gospel alone for your Salvation ......your sins are still on you.....not on the Cross......
  7. RCC. Is legalistic from top to bottom....one of the basics in their Catechism is you are to be damned if you believe in justification by faith alone....there is much more....
  8. I can hear it already..... “Well , He wont let go of us — but we can let go of Him! I don’t care if they are in a hand or not— they verse says they shall NEVER PERISH! Case closed......only a Willfull fool would try to argue against that.Sadly, we can now sit back and watch them argue that NEVER does not really mean NEVER....
  9. It seems that I have presented myself as a real ogre.I should explain my position better.Here goes—- I have engaged many atheist here in my short time at Worthy.As a former atheist myself, I will bend over backwards to help these lost souls if they come here in sincerity to have an open and honest conversation.Even the troublemakers have my prayers .The majority that I have seen are only here to show off their superior intellects,doing their best to show that Christians are stupid, too weak to confront the cruel realities of life and thus are easy targets for a guy to spend a fun afternoon or two .I put up with it, Pray for them and try to get them in the Bible.Not all are “ swine”.It is only when they cross a certain line.As Jesus wisely said, they will attack what you say and then come after YOU.That's the swine that Jesus spoke of.When I see the good, sweet people here, especially the women , that is when I see red.A justifiable anger.Even at that, I don’t personally call them “ swine”. As an end to a conversation that will go nowhere,unless the Holy Spirit open their eyes at some later time, I will tell them that I will not cast my pearls before swine.They are entitled to the truth, even if it is unpleasant to hear. My conversation with them is at an end at this point .....perhaps the “pearls before swine” will give them something to think about. I believe that along with the initial friendliness we should show an honest seeker, they also need to hear the scary truth that they are unaware of.They are headed for Hell like a speeding bullet .They need to see that they are lost sinners who need a Savior.They falsely think they have the option of choosing which side is correct and make their moves accordingly.The Truth is that “ Nobody comes lest The Spirit draw him” They are in more danger than they realize. I believe in using the bad cop/ good cop approach. I strongly believe that they need to hear the bad news before they are ready for the “ Good News”. Jesus delivered the unbelievabley horrible news of going to Hell for harboring as much as a lustful thought, the bad cop message. Then He procaimed that “ all who ask for mercy shall receive it.”How would the see a need for mercy until they saw their depravity before a Holy God?Paul, at the very beginning of his missives, talked about the universal depravity of all Mankind, then revealed God’s way of rescue.Bad cop-Good cop.We need to be kind to the unbeliever, but real love must also contain some painful truths.Engaging with these types intellectually is a waste of time. Convince their hearts , with some old time “ fear and trembling” and the intellect will follow.I never moved a muscle towards God until I saw the horror of my unbelieving state of mind.If it worked f or me, I am confident it will work for others.Let us take these people from ignorance to wisdom— “ The fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom”. God bless
  10. I am not smart enough to be God’s critic.Some think they are .They must be patient .....they will all get a chance to tell Him to His face someday.....They can set Him straight and reveal how “ they” would have ran things
  11. I love the book of Hebrews as well as James.....what have ya got? “ faith without works is dead” I completely agree .Hebrews 6 or 10? George posted a thingy by AZ Tozer that explains it magnificantly. Can somebody find it and post it here? Perhaps I can reread these books and you check out Galations.Judaizers need to recognize themselves, and discover the cure for it that eludes them. ( hint: the cure could be believing Nothing But The Blood)Does it belong in your hymnal?
  12. Please show me what I ignore.....YOU are ignoring the verse I just sent you.....difficult to get around I would think.....just a little head’s up to stuff you may be offering up in your defense......they will ALL be verses taken out of context or verses not speaking to the Body of Christ— I’ve seen them all before....
  13. Read Galations and then tell us that “ legalism” is not in the Bible,it just goes by another name and you know it....It is called Judaism.Willfull blindness and fear to acknowledge the Truth that is obvious to any honest Bible student is a pitiful thing to see.The Word “ rapture” is not in the Bible.Do you reject that too? OSAS is the Gospel.Jesus preached it. John5:24. “Those that believe in me ALREADY HAVE Eternal life and will N E V E R come under judgement” Never means never.I can’t see how anybody could weasel out of this one— but they will.
  14. If the secret to her salvation was resisting other sins, the same must hold true for us too...how are YOU doing with that? I suppose the woman never had an impure thought from that day forward .I could go on forever .If she was ever saved,It was by grace .....the same grace that saved me and everybody else that was ever saved.Reject that Grace and the Standard is perfection.Lost people, on Judgement Day will be will be pleading their case , trying to get into Heaven by what THEY did ......oblivious that Christianity is about what HE did and your faith in that alone.
  15. Legalism May be well- intentioned, nevertheless, it is still legalism.....we do not change to be saved or stay saved.The saved FIND themselves doing God’s will because of the indwelling Holy Spirit.That Spirit does the changing....that is HIS work.YOUR only “ work” is to believe the Gospel .You need not be a legalist to be a Christian— you do not have to change.A very wise Bible teacher said “ You do not have to change to come to my church— but watch out ! If you practice faith, God’s gonna change you.!” That’s how it works .Only if you trust Him.
  16. With all due respect , Jesus did not seem to be worried about “ stepping on toes”, and He was the One who came up with the insult.I used to be an atheist .The fear of going to Hell as a “ swine” played a big part in my Salvation.Nobody gets saved until they see they are lost.Rejecting the finished work of Jesus Christ makes one a “ swine.”Best be informed about it now, while their is a chance to do something about it.If the “bad news” is taken to heart, they will be ready to receive the Gospel.Or remain a pig .Their choice.
  17. In a nutshell......yes. You can’t keep the Commandments.....you need a loophole......we have one......it’s called Grace.....imputed righteousness .....the reason Abraham is in Heaven .....God took Abe’s faith and “ counted” it as righteousness.....faith in the Gospel alone will get us the same deal......it can’t be beat!
  18. A Judaizer believes that the Gospel in 1cor15:1-4 is not adequate to save by itself.Jesus said it was .Paul said if you add to his Gospel you will fall from Grace and the Cross Of Christ is of no benfit to you.In Hebrews4 God orders us to rest in it or be in a state of disobedience and unbelief.The Gospel given to Paul by Jesus personally is a gospel of grace.Works cancel Grace.Works, properly understood ,are great- it is our “reasonable service”.Works will flow from the Holy Spirit That dwells within you if you are born again.Good Works flow from the saved.Those Works did not get a person saved and the continuation of these works after Salvation did not keep him saved.They are an outward evidence that the Holy Spirit indwells you.Doing good Works will bless you and please God—- just don’t insist that they save or keep you saved— THAT is legalism.At the very least it is going to put your Salvation in Jeopardy .Some say it’s a lot worse than that.Are you trying to be saved or trusting to be saved.Your answer could determine everything .
  19. It would not be a denomination.A true Christian will be joyful and at peace .He will be the one to keep his cool when things are going nuts.Who would not want to be like that? Plus.....he knows where he is going when he dies.Whats not to love?
  20. The bombs were dropped with one eye on Japan......the other on Russia......not without good reason Thank God for a man like President Truman—- oozing with class and integrety.....to think that a mistake of nature like Trump sits in the same seat as HST makes me sick.....
  21. Todays Jew is meant to be jealous of the Christian.If that provokes Him to be saved, he has an advantage the run of the mill Gentile may lack. Other than that Jew and Gentile? “ there is now only one” no difference between the two.
  22. Sinning is not “ ok” because of Grace .Sin hurts everybody, that is why God abhores it.We should make every effort to be obedient to God.Obedience to God is the epitome of Wisdom.Solomon learned that at the end of his life and it was HE that paid the price for his stupidity , stubbornness and Willfull life of sin.However hard we try though, sin is something that “easily besets us” as Peter had to admit,even in his old age after being a Believer for many years.Our Loving Father uses discipline on us to get us back in line at times- just as any loving earthly father would do.We need forgiveness and the Grace of God to cover us as we are being changed by God into the image of His Son “.Where sin abounds,Grace abounds more” If one is foolish enough to spit in God’s face for this Grace that cost Him His Son—- let them have at I t ! Do you think God has not seen it before and knows how to handle it?David willfully sinned but it ruined his life.We should ask him about “ sinning and getting away with it”.David is no different than us. Go out and sin up a storm if you so desire...test God’s Grace .You will be punished severely! He may even choose to kill you on the spot as He has done to countless others.Fortunately he is still saved if he is a Believer.Because Of Grace.Dont Be so quick to complain about Grace not being “ fair”. It isn’t .Rejoice in that fact .You May be the one who needs it next.God bless.
  23. To go and sin no more would have been impossible.....He was talking about the one sin she had just been caught in
