  1. The first time I stumbled upon a Bible that I could actually understand, I could not put it down......perhaps it was because I kept reading good stuff that my church never taught ......
  2. Is your neighbor similar to you, or does she posses a heart? Sorry if that was cold.....but if the shoe fits........
  3. “ May the Rhino Fungus invade any part of your body that you find attractive”
  4. In the two years or so that I have been here, I have mentioned the name of Zola Levitt many times......now you can see why....Man, I LOVED that guy! I learned SO MUCH from him....Everybody here can benefit from his gifted teachings.....do yourselves a big favor and visit his site......just google his name.....navigate to his series, the same one I mentioned a few weeks ago... “ Go Tell It On The Mountain”....
  5. Yes.....Jesus technically did not go by the Letter of the Law when the woman caught in the act of Adultery was set free to go by Him.....According to the Law......she SHOULD have been stoned.....Mercy trumps law and Jesus proved it.......to the dismay of Legalists everywhere.....
  6. Likewise—-The Tablets Of The Law are in the Heavenly Arc ....hidden away and covered by the Mercy Seat....That Mercy Seat is covered by the Precious Blood Of Christ......God doesn’t view the Law now, without first having to see the Blood......That is a thing that works out very well for us Believers....
  7. Just though of this one....to paraphrase .....talking to His Disciples, Jesus Said..... “ Formerly, I called you my students, now I will call you “ my friends”.....
  8. It may or may not be Biblical, but to me , God is like a Best Friend That is a LOT smarter than me..... I love Him a lot......He loves me immeasurably .....If you knew me , all you could say is “ AMAZING” Grace......
  9. Nice to have you aboard, Neighbor......although something about you seems kinda familiar .....oh, well.....
  10. You have reduced me, once again , to a mere shell of the man I was just hours ago .Due to my geographical ignorance, I have unknowingly given you a sword and you and my former friend, Dusty have not hesitated to pierce my heart with it......Yes! I may be down now .....but this battle is FAR from over ! Just remember .....” I’ll get you ,my pretty and your new lap- Dog partner ....the evil Hench- Man , Dusty!.......
  11. Hey ! I never claimed to be a walking, talking “ Rand McNally” did I ? Isn’t it enough that I toil- day after day— to keep the memory of Buddy alive ?............speaking of which......today is the 3 rd weekly anniversary of Kay’s Massacre.....oh,what I wouldn’t give if I could just turn back the clock and......er .... ah.... sob....sniff,snif.......I am sorry.....I need more time to grieve......
  12. We must come to God, certainly. “ all of those that COME TO ME , in no wise shall be cast out.” “ How I wanted to gather them up as a hen does it’s baby chicks......but they would not COME TO ME” There is a slight sticking point, however...... “ NOBODY COMES lest the Spirit draw him” People that think they will hold off on Salvation until THEY are “ready”.....perhaps on their death - bed, should note that the initiative for Salvation belongs to God— not you .
  13. I pray that Wales break off from Great Britain and float Southwest into the Bermuda Triangle......lost forever....
  14. There is “ good news” for people like you that have crossed the first “ hurdle” of Salvation......That first hurdle is seeing that you are a sinner that needs a Savior......That conviction of your state of sin and the hopelessness of trying to “ Turn over a New Leaf” to earn you Salvation. That ain't the typical thinking of the Natural Unsaved Man .The Natural man thinks he ain’t perfect, but he is “ good enough” to merit Salvation.The Awakening to the Truth That you are a helpless, hopeless sinner, headed for a Hell you richly deserve like a speeding bullet , is an insight and conviction that only the HOLY SPIRIT can enlighten one to. ( Nobody comes to the Father, lest the Spirit draw him) Once a person has been convicted of sin and understands from his new Contrite Heart That He MUST have a Savior or he is doomed, the next hurdle is to TURN TO Jesus Christ ( this is repentance - the only type that plays a part in Salvation.....there are two other types of Repentance and neither are Relevant to getting Saved or staying saved) On this side of the Cross, in this Age Of Grace the proper way to Turn To Christ is to believe His Gospel Of 1Cor15:1-4——— Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead.Believe that ALONE and prove that you are only Trusting in that Good News ALONE by RESTING in it.That REST eliminates trusting in yourself or anything else— ESPECIALLY “ LUCKY” REPENTANCE OF SIN to maintain your forever saved status.This type of “repentance” that is a sorrow and regret that propels the Saved Man to try to do a better job of following after the Spirit as opposed to giving in to his old,sinful, Adamic Nature is an instrument that God uses in His Plan to TRANSFORM a man steeped in sin.It happens automatically in the life of the Believer—- AFTER one is saved.When you sin as Believer you will repent from most sins, but if we actually had to repent from EVERY sin , we would be driven insane. It is not possible to repent from ALL sins.....too many are forgotten , too many we are unaware of ( shameful , lustful ,envious thoughts ) and the list of Sins Of Omission That the Law-Keepers NEVER WANT TO DISCUSS ( have they taken any strangers into their homes to feed and clothe lately) Finally, if those that desire to set up “Lucky Repentance” as an Idol to stay saved, they need to listen to James......He said if you break ONE LAW, you have broken them ALL! When you say your nightly prayers of Repentance , remember that there are 613 Laws. You need to allow time to account for ALL of them. What a way to exist .God’s Way is the Way Of Grace......all sins paid for by the FINISHED WORK of Jesus on the Cross .Grace is what gets you saved. Grace is the ONLY THING that keeps you saved. Thank Jesus for it and go live a life of True Sabbathing......Resting in what Christ did FOR you at the Cross.......RESTING in the Gospel Of Grace is God’s Key for everything......Trusting or Resting in the Grace That you are totally forgiven now and forever because of your Faith.Living in the Peace Of mind that True Sabbathing will bring is the only thing that will allow you to truly Love God.....That Love will lead to obedience and the works we were created for.....Dead Works become Faith Works......all else is dung.God is not as interested in what you do as much as He is interested in what He can do THROUGH you........Let go and let God......THAT is Faith! God bless...
  15. Those that committed the Unpardonable Sin told Jesus to His face “ You have a demon!” A Totally unique situation......unless you have an opportunity to talk to Jesus face to face in the here and now, I would not worry about it.......THose That did this terrible thing weren’t worried, and , in fact,if you told them that they had just committed a sin that was unforgivable , they would have laughed in your face.....
  16. Once again, you have proven me to be wrong.....And once again, I stand humiliated in front of the entire World, exposed as the wrongful fool that I am......and you just LOVE it, don’t you? Oh, the-humanity.....
  17. “ in the final days there will be an Alter for the Lord in the middle of the land of Egypt and on the border therof......”. Isaiah 19:19
  18. ........I do not get the point of This , unless Kay has moved on to trap penguins.....for the Love Of Pete, May that not be true......
  19. If Buddy was a Calvinist.....count me In......If Buddy was not Calvinist....count me out.....
  20. What a compliment to receive! Thank you so much for your kindness ! I don’t have to tell “ you” to Whom the credit “ really” goes .... “ all good things come from God”.......To HIM be the Glory.......Always. It would be Terrible oversight not to present George with a TON of kudos for setting this place up that makes this kind of Stuff possible .I wish the entire Church World knew about this great site .George should consider advertising on TV.........what’s a 30 second spot go for on Super Bowl Sunday ? It can’t be THAT much......can it? Lol.... Seriously though.....thank you , George for all you have done and continue to do.....I envy your wisdom , and I especially envy your even- temperament and the mental maturity that you show daily in putting up with all of us.......last , but not least , I envy the rewards you are going to receive at the Bema Seat Of Christ for all that you have done here...... I am also glad that you did not permanently ban the former “ Lady” Kay for her dastardly deed in regard to that sweet, innocent , lovable, undoubtably Heaven-Bound rodent friend of ours— Buddy. ( this Friday will be the three week mark of his early departure .....lest we forget . ) haha! Sorry— I got this “ thing” for running things into the ground.....May God forgive me- I just can’t help myself! Lol.....
  21. I don’t really know what you were thinking in earlier times.....all I know for sure is that you got it “ Spot On” now.If I did not know better, I would almost swear you had a “Change Of Mind”....... lol......ain't it great to be “ A Free Man in Christ” ? One could not put a price on the value of getting the weight of religion off your shoulders .......Discovering that I do not have to reach a performance level that never revealed how good your performance had to be to get saved......did I have too be 100% perfect? How about 70% perfect .Will 50.1 % work? That would be over 50%— wouldn’t that get me over the line? When I finally understood that I did not have to work and struggle to “ make myself Worthy” to get to Heaven , it was the best news I ever heard.I learned that instead of trying to “ make myself worthy”—- I was “MADE WORTHY” by the Blood of the Lamb.My goal in posting here has always been to expose the damnable heresy of Legalism and hopefully be a voice that God can use to set people free from being “ religionists” instead of Christians.I see myself as a Pit Bull in the fight against Leaven and Legalism.....I will make every effort to stamp it out ASAP.......as Paul stated.....It only takes a LITTLE Leaven to ruin a Church or anything Christ-Related.Ultimately, Paul Lost the Church at Galatia despite his warning letter to them.That Church he started there was not the only one..... “ALL the churches in Asia have abandoned me” Paul was forced to say to Timothy . All because of Leaven .All because of Legalism. One does not compromise with Leaven.....it has to be ejected. Paul said to “ throw out the Bond-Woman and her son” ( the symbols of Legalism ) because they will ALWAYS attack the descendants of the Free Woman ( the symbol of those that trust in Faith alone ) I can’t throw nobody out of here......I don’t really want to ...the Leaven Spreading Judaizers here can unknowingly be used as “ springboards” to get the Truth out and give people out there in the real world that must deal with these deceived types, the Words Of Scripture to destroy their “ doctrines Of demons”. God HATES Legalism—- He knows the power it has to destroy lives AND His Churches. I hope their are other “Pit Bulls “out there who are on God’s side in this ongoing battle......God bless....
  22. I have seen that same , sad automobile scenario played out in Worthy several times. I have used it myself .The Legalists in here give the same response as you former Pastor did. What a way to live.The typical, popular, but ultimately erroneous understanding and application of Repentance played out in here daily has turned it into just another dead work.Anything done in the Flesh That one thinks is earning Brownie Points with God or is being done to maintain Salvation is a dead work.The one Book Of The Bible that most Newbies are sent to in order to get them acquainted with Jesus and Salvation is the Book of John . The word “ repent” will not be found in that Book .A wise person would take a lesson from that.
  23. The crux of the matter and all it boils down to is this..... I am a proud, patriotic Ohio boy who loves this great country , a former Eagle Boy Scott Who salutes the flag, can recite every word of the Star-Spangled Banner and knows Lincoln’s Address by heart....wanna hear it? On the other hand , there is “ Margo”..... a denizen Of the “ Not -So - Great White North”....... pffttt......need I say more? I though not.....
  24. We who believe that Christ's finished work on the cross is sufficient for our salvation are not believing we have a license to sin. I think the point that Blood Bought is trying to make is: if we happen to sin, our sins are covered by the precious sacrifice Christ made on our behalf. An accurate analyses, deb, but let me go a little farther, if I may......I don’t need any “license” to sin.... I have always been able to sin quite easily without one ... I can sin as much as I want.....not that I can sin “ and get away with it” .....it’s just that I have the Spirit Of God within me and He has changed all of my “ wants”.....Legalists everywhere , Blow the dust off of those long- neglected Thinking Caps and try to GET THIS.... I do not WANT to sin anymore .... This is the crux of Christianity that you are blind and deaf to! I suppose only God can grant “ eyes to see and ears to hear” .Sin in my life has lost all of its appeal .When I sin, God chastises me like the Devil ( literally , perhaps lol... ) If I were to accidentally step on a worm , the Holy Spirit would probably convict me of it and I would lose sleep over it! THAT is how sin-sensitive my New HeArt is.God forbid that I would ever kill an innocent little mouse like SOME PEOPLE WE KNOW! Lol....... I hope the former “ Lady” Kay sees this.....haha! May God forgive me, I just can’t help myself when it comes to promoting and indulging in silliness sometimes ......God bless Lady Kay for her Buddy posts! Anyway.....When I sin..... “ I” am the one who pays the price! Why on earth would I have the desire to sin when , to me, it is liking sticking my own hand in a fire! THAT is how God handles any and all sin problems with His Grace Trusting Children .He gives us the gift of Repentance in order to restore a grieved relationship. I have a natural tendency to repent now that God’s Holy Spirit resides in me .I’ll say it once again to my deaf opponents out there—— REPENTANCE is great when properly used,the exact same thing that Paul said about the Law. The Law is great if you understand its purpose . It’s purpose was to to show us we can’t keep it and that we need a Savior. Repentance is also great .....as I said , it restores a strained relationship between a Son and His Father... It just is NOT a band-Aid to help maintain your “:performance “ you are-working on to impress God . Turning Repentance into something that must be done to keep your Salvation is a DEAD WORK ! The next time somebody wants to “ accuse one of the Brethern” — namely ME —of taking Grace as a license to sin and ignoring the value of Repentance, write this down somewhere..... I flat-out guarantee that I repent more often and more strenuously than anybody else here.All I am maintaining is that almost hourly repentance does not keep me saved. That is the function of Grace. The Grace That put all of my sins on the Cross before I even THINK about doing them. That “license to sin” issue? If I had a license to take a razor blade and slice off my lips, I would not use that license. I could hurt myself , right? If I had a license to sin , why would I use it ? Who suffers when I sin , regardless of any license I possess ? If you answered “ why, that would be crazy! BB 1953 would be+the-one to suffer !” —— go to the head of the class....... .
  25. Great Scripture , Sonshine......I have stressed that heart condition several times....The entire POINT of the Law was to get people to “shut up” about their Law-Keeping abilities in order to merit Salvation. God used to Law to drive anybody with a brain to their knees , pleading for a Savior that could provide a Salvation that they couldcNEVER earn by trying and failing to keep the Law......God Bless...
