    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

  1. How To Get To Heaven When You Die

    You are preaching to the choir in the inner court. I am moving this to the outer court where those who need to read this are.
  2. Jesus

    I will either be frozen in awe or on my face. I don't really believe I will be thinking of something to say.
  3. Saturday or Sunday?

    Wish you would of let me know you started another thread as I just split off the SDA discussion from the False Doctrine thread into the thread called SDA and the Sabbath Keeping I can merge this one with that thread so it is being discussed in one place. Let me know.
  4. False doctrine

    This thread is locked for serious cleaning. It is a shame that I have asked three time to not continue to hijack this thread, but start other threads, and only one member understood and did so. The rest just ignored my request and continues. Those who derailed the thread and personally attacked other members will be banned from this thread. I have spent hours on this thread already tonight. I will continue tomorrow. I apologize to those who were actually answering the OP's questions/concerns. I will try to have it taken care of early tomorrow.
  5. This is created to split from the False Teaching thread and give the members a place where they can discuss this topic without hijacking the other thread.
  6. False doctrine

    I had to increase your font size to read it. Yes, you are correct. That is why having faith in His word is all so important. Consider Ephesians 6:10-20. Not once is it ever mentioned that our backside is protected. Ever wonder why? It is because those whom are warriors do not turn and run. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. We will be attacked, as every warrior on the front line gets attacked. If this form of battle is not something one feels led to do, the realize for every warrior on the front lone, there are thousands in the background supporting them with everything they need, especially prayer. Keep in mind that this ministry chose to be a discussion forum so the true believers can be trained for the battle, to learn where their place is in the battlefield. The site does have it's doctrine and statement of faith, but it is no forced on others. If it was, then there will be only those who agree with us here, and where will the learning be? When one decides to enter into a discussion with someone who holds to false doctrine, the sword (Word of God) needs to be kept sharp, and the only way it remains sharp is by digging deeper in His word where understanding, knowledge and faith are found, taught to each of us by the Holy Spirit, if our hearts are open to Him. This faith is what protects us from the fiery darts of the enemy. The enemy is not the person you are talking to, but the spirits behind the person that is giving the false teaching.
  7. False doctrine

    I have seen this also, and the only way to battle them is with prayer and fasting, always encouraging them to study the scriptures so the Holy Spirit can reach deep within them and show them the truth.
  8. Hi Jeff, akueg did not choose the group seeker, it was assigned to akueg. A seeker is one who desires to know truth, but does not believe in the fundamental faith. It is our prayer that as we speak truth to akueg, akueg will learn. If not, then he will remain as seeker on this site. Letting you know so your question is clearly answered for you both.
  9. False doctrine

    I agree with this one hundred percent. I am not attaking in any way the ones that run this. But I am saying for the sake of the people, the leaven has to be corrected. IF I were in charge of a site , then its on me and I will stand before GOD if I allowed false things to get taught without Correcting them. over time forums have adapted a view that is harming the flocks not helping. they allow ones to post things and if people correct or rebuke to hard they get silenced. We have to get the church sharpened. I think what a lot of people don't really understand or have not thought out is THIS, People come in to christain sites under the guise they are christain, but really they have a agenda and its to pollute the group with their doctrine or false love THEY do this. an example if I supported interfaith or gays rights, and I wanted people too agree . I would come in under the guise of a professing christain then I would little by little get friends and start pumping out EMOTIONS rather than truth , focusing on sensual things and try and get the others to see my point. THEY DO THIS , they aint dumb. they know what they doing . we have to shut down the falsehoods fast by making stronger rules . I hear many times how false doctrine has to be corrected. I suggest that every member do so. Don't leave it up to the moderators to teach others the truth as there are only 3 of us. We also have just a handful of people in ministry and they do what they can also. If every member who is solid in scripture take up against false teaching, in a way Jesus would and not full of personal attacks and insults, we may just have a chance on this site to turn the tide. It is also correct that times will get worse and we will see much more of this teaching everywhere, not just online. Consider this a way to stand up for the truth here so when it happens to you in your personal life, you will know how to deal with it.
  10. False doctrine

    One last time before I begin just deleting specific false doctrine discussions ... please, start a thread about the specific false doctrine you wish to discuss and I will merge the content of this thread into the new thread. This will allow this thread to remain as a general discussion and is not hijacked into the many sub-doctrines you wish to discuss deeper.
  11. NEW

    Welcome. You asked in another thread created in the Outer Court " how do I go about posting in this forum? ". I answered it there before I realized where it was, so I have replied here. That thread is deleted. The Welcome Forum is set up so people can introduce themselves, or to show the moderators they are not a BOT, Troll or a Spammer. Usually the BOT can be easily seen, but a spammer or troll can fool us by being nice until they can post elsewhere. Just reply here until you have three posts, then you will be able to post elsewhere. For more clarity, you could read the pinned threads in the Welcome Forum.
  12. Third Kingdom ("Lying Wonders")

    Please tell me why you are trying to fit a false prophet (Nostradamus) into Gods word?
  13. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    I agree that works means a change of heart, good works to a better heart, bad works to a worse heart. Yet, the true question here is what or who is causing the change of heart? As Yowm stated, there are many people who do good works, yet refuse Christ as their savior. THese will never make it to heaven by their works alone. You also discard the fact that each believer is at a different stage in their life, some just barely being changes, some who have been changed for most of their life, and everyone else who fall between the two. We cannot judge the salvation of another by their works.
  14. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    I am not going to stand in judgment of Paul as I know so little about him I would more then likely be in error and harm others in Christ, no matter which side I stand on, so I will speaks about the works-faith issue being discussed. Works comes after salvation. Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. After we are saved, we then continue to mature in Christ so we can do the works we were prepared to do. 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. So, what is James actually saying? James 2:14-26 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? 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? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. I see that the faith that did save us will produce works, if we continue in Christ and mature. So, what about those who are new in Him or take a longer time to mature? Assuming we are all on a path to Him, we also need to accept that not all are in the same place in our maturity. Meaning, we are all different. I guess one question has to be if a person who has been saved, but dies before his is mature enough to produce good works, are they really saved? I would say yes because it clearly states “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves.” Then there is the question is someone who has been “saved” for a long time, but refused to do the works in Christ they were called to do, does this person actually have saving faith? Here is where there seems to be a contradiction in scripture. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves” is still true, then what happens if there is no works in their faith “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also”? I personally believe that they are not walking in the power of Christ and can do no works, as in healing, prophesy, teaching, etc. So what happens to them? “If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” Since there are no works to be tested, there is nothing to burn or stand. If someone has works and it all burns due to being done for the wrong reason, is he just like the person who has no works to be tested? The true question at this point is if the person we are seeing with no works after a period of time, were they really saved in the first place? The difference being that the one whose works were burned, he at least had works to be tested. But what are we actually doing when we stand in judgment of another? Are we not pretending we are God and can see into the hearts of other, or that we know all their works or lack of works? I’d say yes, we are trying to judge as God judges. The best we should do with these verses are to judge only ourselves. Are we doing the works we are created to do? I suggest that we keep it personal and not as a measuring rod for anyone else but ourselves.
  15. Is this story real? About Paul Washer

    Strange they used that particular scripture as a joke as we will know them by their fruit, including web sites. From Wikipedia: The Babylon Bee is a satirical evangelical Christian website. The site is famous for over-the-top fake stories focusing on well known pastors, celebrities, and politicians. It was created by Adam Ford, and was launched on March 1, 2016. It models itself on The Onion. In June 2016, Babylon Bee was criticized for publishing an article mocking Jan Crouch, who had recently died.
