  1. The ultimate source is Hell......nobody can read the Bible from the front to the back and come out a Catholic...thank God some people get saved DESPITE the farce of Catholicism.....
  2. I would like to apologize if I have lead anybody astray.If it “seems” that I believe in God seeing me through “the spectacles of Christ” because I simply believe in the Shed Blood Of Christ, my postings here must be amiss.Let me remove any doubt—- I am perfect in God’s sight because of my faith.Just like Abraham and the rest of his true Children.I believe Rom10:13—-“ anybody that asks to be saved WILL saved”.God’s word is at stake. The monkey is squarely on His back, to put it crudely.If he does not save me He is a liar.Not likely. Poor God really got Himself in a jam when He made that promise,though. He just couldn’t look ahead and see that there would in the future be all these churches that would make Him regret sticking His neck out.The Lao dicians had gone astray.......just like all the other churches.....and just like you and I.They were “lukewarm” and It was making God sick.Their wealth and comfort fooled them into thinking they must be doing things correctly.They were like many of our modern day churches......the #1 rule is “ don’t make waves”. Don’t speak out against Evolution ,Keep quiet about lousy versions of the Bible, don’t say anything about damnable traditions of the RCC, agree that all religions are really worshipping the same God and that He will ultimately gather us all together and bring us to Heaven , sending anybody to hell is too mean for a Loving God.That is Lukewarmness—- day anything to mollify the world lest they think we are too rigid and not “ loving”. It makes me sick to my stomach too.God is warning that this church and the others are going to be chastised unless they do something about the different errors God has pointed out. No different than He deals with all those He truly loves,for God chastises those that He loves.Hopefully the Laodicians got the message.Hopefully some of our current churches will also. As far as “ planting my feet” and doing nothing,or being self-satisfied as you seem to infer......I am not even close to becoming “weary in well-doing”. I do things you have no idea about.One of the more important things I do is post in here warning baby Christians not to fall for false doctrines.......like two-part Gospels which is just the latest version of the “perverted Gospel” Paul warns about. I want Newbies to know that they can be assured of their salvation and attain the joyful, abundant life Christ shed His blood for.I heard a preacher state the other day that all the saved people in the New Testament KNEW they were saved.Why don’t you know it and rest in it?If my Salvation was based in any way upon “my” performance, I suppose I would be sweating it too. 1cor15:1-4....... add to it and go to Hell......sorry if I stepped on anybody’s toes.
  3. I am familiar with the problems of the Laodecians.......please elaborate as to what you are getting at.Thank you.
  4. I tell them to do the same thing that Paul told us......Believe the Gospel found in 1cor15:1-4...... or if one prefers , simply say, “Jesus save me”.
  5. Gideon....Not to be nosy but may I ask if you are married......if so , what does your wife think of your “ holiness”....somebody that sees you outside of this site and knows the “ real “ you. Personally, I have gone way beyond holiness....in fact, I am perfect.....The Lord of The Universe gave me the perfection of His Son and gave His Son my sins.......what a deal! Makes me want to do good.Love is a better motivator than fear You are no different than anybody else here.....if you knew me the way God knows me you would vomit all over your keyboard.If I knew you as God does I would do the same.Like me,you have secret 5houghts that would shame Hell.......so please get over yourself and face the truth......we’ll know perfection on the Other Side......when we are loosed from these earthen vessels.
  6. The simple,true Gospel of Paul, given to him by Jesus can be found in 1cor15:1-4. We are to believe Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead.That is the Gospel.Nothing else.People That unknowingly show they have not been good students of the Word, see or hear something good in th Bible and automatically think...duh...that must be the Gospel because it sounds good.The actual Gospel is specific and if added to it is a “perverted” Gospel and if you preach it you are “ accursed”—— damned to Hell.Pretty serious stuff.You need to study the Bible more carefully.Here is a good start.....google this—-Harry Ironside Gospel. e King James Bible Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
  7. “Strawberry Fields Forever” was always one of my favorite Beatles tunes.....sad to say,the song has as much Bible in it as this hogwash.That would be none. The line from the song— “ misunderstanding all you see” springs to mind.
  8. We assume that the choice is either legalism, where we have to do our part, or grace, where we do not have to do anything. Yet Jesus said that if we are truly His, we will obey His commandments. So, knowing that both options above are not true, somewhere between them is a sliver of light called the truth, where God actually causes us to do all those things He commands us. There is no need to look for anything between legalism or grace.God’s wondrous plan of salvation or “ greasy grace” as you have chosen to insult it, is half of your salvation. “ it is by grace you are saved, through faith and not by works,lest any man should boast”..... It pains me to say this, but apparently some believe the Blood shed by Jesus to purchase this “greasy grace” must have been “ greasy” blood.Ask the thief on the cross about that “ cheap” grace.He did no works. God’s Grace and the thief’s faith got him to Paradise.The most important thing to God is us accepting His free gift of salvation.Reject that and the total grace that goes with it, and you will never receive His Holy Spirit that will cause you to desire and seek the obedience so many of you clamor for. Obedience is great.....it does not save nor does it keep us saved.When we were flat- out enemies of God, He loved us enough to die for us—-don’t you believe He loves us enough now to keep us saved when we are no longer unbelievers and His foes?God’s Grace plus our faith started this Christian walk—- the same things will get us home.
  9. Thanks for the clarification....I never claimed to be the sharpest knife in the drawer.....lol
  10. I think if if we wait until we stand before Him,it will be too late to make that switch....if “I” try to take credit instead of giving “Him” the credit, I will find myself at the White Throne Judgement awaiting damnation as I try to make a case for Justification by what “I” did instead of giving credit to the Shed Blood.Those That rightly claim the Blood Sacrifice ONLY will be at the Bema Seat of Christ awaiting rewards for our faith——- in HIM only.Faith plus nothing.
  11. It’s high time that this issue was confronted head- on and finally put to rest! 27 good works that benefit the poor and/or widows and orphans will suffice. Now that we have settled that, let’s move on to other issues...let me know if I can clarify any other problems
  12. I gave up one thing for my salvation——- self-effort.
  13. I lifted this from another thread.It May have been veering off topic so I thought I would create another thread to get some opinions about my take on an all- important event we be participating in. If any of the scary things you mentioned will cause me to lose my salvation,God will see to it that I do not do them.His word is at stake not mine. I was not the one who promised to save to the uttermost. I was not the one to say that I will finish what I started.I did not say that those who will come to me I in no wise will cast out.I was not the one who said anybody that asked to be saved WILL be saved . If I die and wind up in Hell it means nothing in the larger scheme of things.But if God does not keep His Word, that is something altogether different.That will never happen.If taking God at His word is a sin, I plead guilty.When Jesus asks me “what do you ever do that I should let you enter Heaven?” I will answer “ I did nothing——YOU did it all when you shed your blood for me,please excuse me now while I fall at your feet to worship you and what you did for me” The I will boldly ask to see what is on the menu at the Marraige Supper of the Lamb.What will you say on that day? “ Nice try , Jesus—-that Blood covered a lot of stuff, but it just wasn’t sufficient by itself, fortunately my clean living and MOST importantly, my timely, lucky repentance I did there at the last minute to get my repentance list caught up , made up for what your Blood could not handle” I don’t think God Wants His Son to share the glory. Of course I could be wrong.
  14. Of course I agree.......I’ll go much farther......I believe we can bank on every single word that is in the Bible....my previous post was theoretical only
  15. She If any of the scary things you mentioned will cause me to lose my salvation,God will see to it that I do not do them.His word is at stake not mine.

  16. Perhaps this explains it more clearly........some sins are very minor.....some sins are ghastly.....from the smallest, to the largest—— they are all willfull—— the big plus side for the Believer is that they are all covered by the Blood......maybe some think The Blood is not adequate......try squaring that with Jesus when you meet Him face- to -face. Nothing but the Blood.Add your works , your repentance or anything else to that and you may hear some words you would rather not hear.You know what they are.God bless
  17. Fair enough......however, using that logic we can learn no lessons from Biblical characters which is the reason God used David, Job and many others.Just for the sport of it, and I think I can safely assume you are not a gambling man, let’s just look at the available evidence and assume Sampson Abraham and Moses are all saved, but as you say only God knows for sure.They all have good evidence they are saved.So how about Lot? Again, we do not know for sure, but dieing drunk makes him look like a poor candidate for repentance.Can you make that stretch—- just for the sake of debate?How was he saved if he did not repent ? I will gamble that he was saved just like you and I were......God’s grace plus our faith.What do you think? God bless
  18. Well, now that we finally got these age- old issues settled, could I please ask a question? Lot is a despicable Bible character.....he died in a cave.....drunk and unrepentant.How on earth was he saved?Just asking, although if I had to make a wager I would bet it was Gods grace plus Lots faith. Kinda like my experience.” Anybody that asks to be saved WILL be saved.” If you have asked God to save you, you are saved or God is a liar.The monkey is on HIS back— not yours, to put it crudely.Many Of you do not have the assurance of your salvation.....you’ll never understand true Sabbathing.....but you are saved, if you believe.Faith plus nothing....like Lot.
  19. I am smart enough and humble enough to state that I could be wrong about everything I think. How about you? please explain what you meant by “ positions you are not entitled to” Thank you
  20. It has been my experience that repentance is purely a gift from God.The “ repentance of sorrow” that Godly repentance that reveals ones wretchedness before a Holy God, that piercing of the heart by the Holy Spirit thAt leaves one with only one plea— “ God, have mercy on me a sinner” sure did not come from anything that “ I” dreamed up.These days , if I mess up and sin, I repent automatically—- I don’t even have to think about it. I sin , I regret it, I repent.It is not pleasant. It is a chastising tool that puts me back on course as God shapes me into the image of His Son.Once again, it is a gift.....all because of my faith.Thats All I have to offer and of course that faith is a gift of God also.I believe— God does the rest.Trust Him.
  21. Agreed......treat them with kindness and respect—— but never give them positions that Paul says they are not entitled to.
  22. Now that is one classy post! A great example for an on- looking world to witness. Reasonable men can disagree—- especially Christian men.I fully support Butero’s right to be wrong! Just kidding.I think it all boils down to this.I think we all believe in God’s AMAZING grace......those in Buteros camp think my fellow heathens take Grace way too far.....those in my camp sincerely believe that Butero and his group do not take it far enough The examples I use like the guy bumping his head and cussing and going to Hell is ridiculous—- just like Buteros example of the Christian going on a shooting rampage is absurd.We both use these extreme nonsensical example to make our points. I just happened to hear a good sermon last night that could be of use here—- perhaps not. I am hard-core hyper-grace and OSAS, but I dont believe ANYBODY gets away with ANYTHING. All Believers escape the Great White Throne Judgement where all trying to be justified by anything other than the Blood of our Savior will be damned.All Believers will stand at The Bema Seat of Christ where rewards for acts of faith will be passed out.Sounds great doesn’t it? Maybe not for some.Imagine this—— you come home ,your house has utterly been destroyed by fire , everything you worked so hard for is gone, your wife is dead, your children burned alive.You however, managed to escape from this fire.Still alive and breathing.How Happy you gonna be?Saved from the flames but you have suffered much loss.Sound Familiar? Like the guy from Paul’s story in 1cor3:15.... the guy that suffered much loss but was saved.I believe there will be great sorrow at this time.This is to be the fate of carnal, even unrepentant Christians who at least had a speck of faith that let them believe that Jesus was who He said He was and believed in His Ressurection.Saved, but ashamed and suffering tremendously when they see that the mansions and their areas of rule they could have had in Eternity but lost because of foolishness and disobedience.I would be interested to see what others think about this.God bless.
  23. Had Nathan the Prophet not revealed what David had done, who knows if he would ever have repented.David seemed to be going along his merry way until he got called out.I wonder if David was sorry for what he did, or was he sorry because he got caught? Comments welcome...even from Butero! Lol.....a little friendly humor there.
