Re: Why are there so many non-believers?

Many of the "believers" are nominal believers, like the devils (James 2:19) Ther do not adhere to, cling to, rely on what Jesus actually said (John 7:37-39, 14:12, Mark 16:15-20; Acts 2:4, 39; then 1 Cor 14 details what Jesus wants in Church meetings, the orderly operation of his gifts & ministries)...

Re: Choosing Which Eternal Destiny

...My understanding of a fair choice would be that the consequences of making that choice should be as clear as possible. God's option cannot be properly understood unless you receive it: "as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things whic...

Re: Choosing Which Eternal Destiny

... I am curious as to what some Christians believe is needful to understand regarding salvation to make it an acceptable choice of one of these two destinations. We don't have to spend time on hypothetical questions, God has given us his word (and hebrew meanings) so that we can research, reason a...

Re: Questions and discussion about witnessing....

Did Philip speak in tongues to the Ethiopian. Did Paul to the people on Mars Hill? Do you when you witness to strangers? No becauase tongues is for talking to God, not to men (1 Cor. 14:2, 4) Tongues allows we to drink from God's Spirit, then I am a first-hand witness of the New Life, I have the pe...

Re: Questions and discussion about witnessing....

"ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me ... they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." (Acts 1:8, 2:4) so, (1) receive that Life, (2) live it. People that do that ...

Re: Coming to Christ: What to make of no spiritual experienc

Tallman, We've asked you several times to identify your particular background and you've declined to do so. Nonsense, I have linked to the church I'm in (and have been in for over 20 yrs) . . and it has always been advertised on my personal profile. Can you please link to the church you belong to? ...

Re: Coming to Christ: What to make of no spiritual experienc

While it may take years of humbling to stop us believing in ourselves and to believe that Jesus is the answer, actual conversion from being natural to spiritual ("born again", "Christian" in the true sense) is a one-off experience: "the Spirit of truth ... shall be in you. At that day ye shall know ...

Hi Tallman, hope you are well. :wave: I'm getting baptised in two weeks. y>:D< We had a lady visit us on Sunday, she received the Spirit and got baptised straightaway, like the bible says.

Re: Coming to Christ: What to make of no spiritual experienc

Tall man, What is your definition of repent? Change of mind. ...I can not honestly see how you can so blatantly twist these scritptures to try and fit your view of salvation. I would call it pathetic. The evidence of the Word does not support you in the least. Interesting that you simply ignore the...

Hi Tallman, hope you are well. :wave: I'm getting baptised in two weeks. y>:D< Hi, I'm well, I have salvation. The first question Paul asked people (before he even knew what they believed, only that they had a belief in Jesus) was "unto what" Acts 19:1-6. i.e. what version of Jesus... the right one...

Re: Coming to Christ: What to make of no spiritual experienc

If thou confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved: End of story. ... Romans 10:9 is offered to many people seeking salvation, and when they sincerely confess Jesus is their Lord, they are told that they have received salvat...

Re: I think I am losing my faith.

The site has helped me plenty but from reading certain verses in the bible it just seems very non-merciful and just plain cruel. I am now contemplating on becoming a Deist. Here are the verse I have read- DUET chap 22 vs 28-29 exodus 21:7 LEV 29:16 Please explain these to me. You want the verses ex...

Re: What needs to be done in order to be saved

People assume that "paradise" means heaven, and therefore the thief was sincere in his comments. Matthew and Mark's account of this dialogue both say that both of the thieves were speaking mockingly to Jesus immediately before the darkness - the same time of the dialogue reported by Luke:- “THE THIE...

Re: Questions about slavery in the Bible

Some take this as a prophecy that the slave trade, though evil, would bring heathen people in contact with Israelites who had become Christians, in the USA especially: "Thus saith the Lord, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee...

Re: Being saved from what? For what?

... Are we being saved from Hell (the firery pit) so that we can go to Heaven and be disembodied spirts, or are we going to inherit the "New Earth" and go back to a garden of eden so to speak.
