Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav, Since you didn't actually answer my question, I'll ask it again: In your opinion, is observing the sabbath and other OT commandments the fruit one who is saved, shows? -------------------------------- BavarianWheels wrote: The Decalogue does not point to redemption!

Re: Walking down memory lane...

Hana,

I understand that Florida is not the center of the universe, but a simple google search would've shown you where FL is. Does Slobovia* not have the google function on computers?




*Slobovia. I wonder who used to call it that. y:-?

Maybe it is really him :shock:
Yes Hana, that's me. I'm really a septuagenarian. I'm not really 49. As well as using sarcasm to hide my lack of intelligence, I also lie about my age, to impress people.

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Jesus said “If ye love me keep my commandments” (John 14:15). After all this heated discussion I will answer my own question with a definite YES! If I fail then Jesus will forgive me if I have faith and love Him. Anyway, keeping Saturday holy and not murdering anyone will not be too onerous for me....

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav, I know you have said multiple times, that observing the sabbath is not a requirement for salvation. In your opinion, is observing the sabbath and other OT commandments the fruit one who is saved, shows? “Salvation is all of grace and not of works, but its fruitage is obedience to the Commandmen...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

This board's (independent?) moderator states that God's Laws are only applicable to Jews? Just OT Jews? So this board's moderator says Christians are above God's Commandments and can safely ignore some of them? I will continue to try to comply with all that The Father and His Son said in the Bible ...

Re: living on other planets

I think this is the verse you are referring to. It's Mark 13:27:
27 And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.


I think it's now officially safe for you to move to mars.

Re: Marriage - It's an Institution

I'd start a thread on sarcasm, but then I'd probably be accused of narcissism.

Re: Survival of the Fittest

I'm obviously just not very good at using sarcasm. If the only person who understands it is me, then something went wrong. Sorry Rick, didn't mean to offend.* *I might be using sarcasm. Not even I'm sure now... y:-? Actually K, You know you are getting good at the art of sarcasm, when you yourself ...

Re: Marriage - It's an Institution

do not worry, we have not kissed yet - am i not too fast? ;) That's ok Hana. My wife and I have been married for almost 22 years, and we still haven't kissed yet. I'm taking it slow, because I don't want her to get the wrong idea about our relationship. I want her to know that I love and respect he...

Re: Survival of the Fittest

Bav, I think you hyper-focused upon the last thing that my intended humorous response was meant to convey - and that was, God ordained the eating of meat, the use of it in sacrifices, and as a necessary element in carnivores' diets and the food chain. And herbivores eat plants (living biological en...
