  1. Thats great. Now please explain why you would debunk scripture. JLB
  2. I didn’t ask you your opinion about what I said was true or or not Again, you said ... with a passage of scripture that has been debunked at least 20 times. Please explain HOW YOU go about debunking scripture. Why would YOU want to debunk scripture. JLB
  3. Please explain to us how one goes about “debunking” scripture. At least we all can see what your motive is. JLB
  4. Please quote the scripture for us where Jesus said “nothing in the future could remove you from Him” Here are two that say otherwise. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. John 15:2 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch That’s the end of OSAS! JLB
  5. This teaching is Instruction to His disciples as t how to go after His lost sheep. And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. Matthew 18:12-17 JLB
  6. Those are your words. I have simply posted what the scriptures clearly teach us. “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:4-7 Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ He rejoiced because one of His sheep who became lost was found. One must first possess something in order for it to become lost. I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. His sheep who become lost are are no longer counted as “just”, but as sinners in need of repentance. The 99 remained justified, while the one who became lost, was counted as a sinner. over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons Do the lost need salvation? JLB
  7. Lots of people believe different things. The question is, do you believe and obey Jesus Christ, who is the truth? Thats how we are instructed to remain “in Christ”. he who keeps His commandments abides in Him Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. 1 John 3:24 but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 JLB
  8. The son of the father, who became lost by living in sin. Thats who I mean. JLB
  9. There is no such thing as “faith alone”. Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:17 Abraham was justified the first time by obeying God. By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. Hebrews 11:8 By faith means God spoke to a person and they obeyed. Faith comes by hearing God speak to us. JLB
  10. Faith without the “work” or action of obedience is dead and can not save. Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? James 2:21-22 Faith without this corresponding action of obedience is dead, dormant and incomplete. Paul calls this the “obedience of faith”. But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Romans 16:26 That’s why the scripture says “with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10 Its the combination of believing and obeying, that works together to complete the principle of faith. Would you like me to show you some examples from the Bible of this principle in action? JLB
  11. So you are teaching that that there is no need for a person to repent, turn to God, in order to be saved? If one of His sheep becomes lost, they must also repent, and return to God or remain lost. JLB
  12. Yes believe means obey. Obey Jesus Christ. If you believe Jesus is Lord, but don’t repent, turn to Hm and confess Him as Lord, you believing is in vain. JLB
  13. The way we obey the Gospel, is to repent. The way we repent, is to confess Jesus as Lord. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. This is the action of faith, which Paul calls the obedience of faith. Faith without the action or “work” of obedience is dead, and can not save. One the confessing of Jesus as Lord, by the Spirit, we are born again, through the Gospel message. Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 1 Peter 1:22-23 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit So as you can see, believing alone will not save JLB
