  1. If one is saved, God puts His Holy Spirit in you .That Spirit will Transform you and you will “ find” yourself obeying God . God changes your “wants”. You “ want” to obey because you have been TRANSFORMED. This transformation is so vital Paul said that in the end, it is the only thing that matters.Sometimes this change is not apparent until much time has passed. Sometimes it happens quickly.The thief on the Cross did not get enough time to show how obedient he was or wasn’t .Something tells me he would have become an obedient man - obedience stemming from a New Spirit and a newfound Love .Just like any other Believer. It is true that Jesus does not force Himself on anyone.It is also true that “ nobody comes to God lest the Spirit draw him” The perogative belongs to God , not men.The Word is out there for anyone to accept .The Word falls “ on hard ground” of those whose hearts Satan has hardened and to whom the Gospel is “ foolishness” I am not smart enough to figure all this stuff out. It is God’s desire that “ no one should perish” — yet the vast majority do.Its like God is broadcasting in FM and the vast majority of the human race only has an AM Radio. It all appears to get back to that “ears to hear” thing.The why and how as to who gets the ears to hear is beyond me.I hope somebody Derives something of value from this meandering post.....I usually try to avoid such things.....lol
  2. The catholics have seven steps ( give or take a step or two) to “ earn” their Salvation.The Bible only gives one. The Gospel Of 1cor15:1-4.Paul says if you preach a different Gospel Than the one given to him by Jesus you will go to Hell ( did you here that, pope ) If you believe this false gospel ,you are “ fallen from Grace” and “ severed from the Cross”—- this is the current condition of all of those who buy into their “ works” Salvation Formula.They are not alone, of course.....millions of Protestants add to the Gospel Of Grace with variations of “Jesus Saves... B U T.” Give the catholics credit for this much—- they don’t try to hide their damnable doctrines— their false teachings are out there in th open. They are on record as to letting you know that if you disagree with them you are damned.It is in their Cathecism.Available for the World to see.Anytime.The catholics should be seen as a Mission Field, no different than any other group that needs to hear and believe the true Gospel Of Jesus Plus Nothing.
  3. Tithing was commanded as a part of the Mosaic Law.We are not under the Law.....all those under the Law are under the Curse of the Law. There is nothing inherently wrong with Titheing.....but if you tithe because you think you “ H A V E” to tithe to be saved or do it in order to STAY saved, you have put yourself under a curse.As I heard a preacher say once - Jesus Christ is your tithe- If you are saved.He never went into detail about that, but I found it to be an interesting claim....
  4. I can’t think of any catholic person that I dislike.....usually they are great people. It’s their Doctrine that I hate.It’s straight from Hell.The singular belief in Purgatory spits on the Blood Of Christ and proves that any proponent of it is absolutely clueless about Christianity.Research it . I did.It made me want to cry and vomit at the same time.Pure,Satanic, Blasphemy.
  5. Your “PRIORITY” should be JESUS......You Salvation is not about YOU.....It is a free Gift, given by His Grace to people that do not deserve it.People that do NOT work for it.Jesus did EVERYTHING.You did NOTHING.He lived a life that you cannot live. He payed a price you cannot pay.He took all of your sin and in turn , gave you His Rughteousness.Even when you had no use for Him.THAT is love....THAT is Grace.....THAT is why we Worship HIM.......You may want to mention some of that stuff when you stand before Him, trying to justify yourself with your puny performance...... “ Ye are to be perfect, Even as your Father in Heaven is Perfect. “ If you think you can reach the TRUE Standard of God’s Requirement for getting into Heaven , which is PERFECTION 24/7......have at it! For anybody who has an ounce of self - insight and knows that they are wretched sinners, without hope except for God’s Grace—- here is where you can obtain that Grace: 1Cor15:1-4......Believe it and REST in it , and it ALONE.
  6. Yawn......seen dozens of these deluded types come and go.....they fool nobody ....they are just like you and I , sinning every hour of every day.....Jesus made it clear that the thought was just as bad as the deed in God’s eyes, and all of these types have secret thoughts that would shame Hell itself.No better than you and I.And “ sins of omission” ? Do we really need to go there? Been busy at the local soup kitchen lately?How many strangers have you invited into your home to feed and clothe? All these guys do is bring the Perfect Law Of God down to a level that they think they can obey ,and then brag about how “righteous” they are .They know NOTHING about Faith or Grace . Like Luther said... “How can they pretend to preach it”
  7. The Law is great if you use it as God intended it.... “A school master to grab you by the hand and deliver you to your Savior.” Paul was the one that said the Law was “ weak, in that it COULD NOT SAVE”. The Gospel has “POWER”.......POWER TO SAVE!Grace is so much superior to the Law.I am not trying to insult the Law ....I am just saying Grace is sooooo much better.The Law never Saved one Soul.Not ONE! Grace Saved every Soul That was ever Saved.Lets respect the Law and be thankful for its leading us to Christ, but it if you have to choose between Law and Grace to put on some type of “pedestal”I would go with Grace.
  8. The only Repentance that matters as far as one’s Salvation is concerned is the one that is in response to the Conviction of Sin by the visitation of the Holy Spirit.That is your “ lightbulb moment” where the blinders are removed and you see yourself as the worthless, helpless sinner that you are . My response was to TURN TO GOD ( Repentance) and ask for forgiveness .Had I NOT repented after the ugly Truth of who I was and where I was headed,was revealed to me, I do not know how many more opportunies the Holy Spirit would have given me. “ Today, if you hear God’s voice ,do not harden your heart” All Unbelievers are damned- that we know.What is it that is in the heart of the Unbeliever that got him in that position? Do some never receive the Conviction? Do some receive it and refuse to Turn To God and receive His Grace and Forgiveness? For this type of Repentance....the one that leads to “ Turning to God With Faith in Jesus Christ”....I lean toward it being one shot.The other type of Repentance that accompanies those who have been Born Again That is a feeling of guilt and shame over daily sins can occur countless times in the Life of a Believer.If That does ‘t Automatically happen in your life, it’s time to check and see if you “ are in the Faith”
  9. Nope......but something tells me we will not agree.....which is not a big deal ...I will always staunchly defend your right to be wrong....
  10. I have it on good authority that those who like hamburgers are OSAS and those that like hot dogs are NSOAS.......Sorry......force of habit......lol
  11. How do you understand Salvation?
  12. Some say that in order to commit the unpardonable sin, you have to do what those in the crowd did that day.They told Jesus to His face — “ You have a demon in you!” It is impossible to commit this identicle sin unless you have a time machine, in their opinion. There are many more theories out there.That’s all they are- theories.
  13. Being saved is the opposite of being lost......being lost means you go to Hell.....pretty easy question on the surface.....methinks it could be a trick question ......lol.....apologies if it is not....
  14. I have heard some speculate that Paul met personally with Jesus in the Sinai Desert at the same spot that God gave the Law to Moses.Interesting.
  15. To each their own , I suppose, eye sockets are pretty tasty, but for my money — I much prefer the snout....
  16. I am very aware of that “ stooping” thing.....got down on one knee to find some Tootsy-Pops on the bottom shelf at my local Wal-Mart.......wow......had to grab shelf above me to pull myself up.....getting old can , at times, be awful....until you think about the alternative.....lol
  17. Here’s a place no sane man should venture.......the contents of potted meat.....May God have mercy on us all....
  18. Just the thought of clicking on that link has got me trembling like a French Soldier.....it is best to remain ignorant about some things !
  19. Great!......this is the self- assessment all saved people have in common.One could call it “A Contrite Heart”.NOBODY in Heaven will be there without one.
  20. I bet we're all a little crazy. Everybody seems to be “ Normal”.........until you get to know them.I know of no exceptions to this rule.Except me.......haha
