Re: When were you saved?

TM, this is good. This can ONLY be good. Can you explain to me WHAT speaking in tongues actually means? Sure! It means speaking/praying to God in an unlearned language that he gives you, rather like a parent leads a small child into what it has for it. "he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks no...

Re: Has anyone else had this 'experience'?

Hi guys! Hope you are all well. Haven't been on for a while, although I visit every few months or so. I'd like to run past you more experienced believers, an experience I had a few months ago at a church. I'll begin by saying this church is 'orthodox' in it's beliefs. They beleive in keeping the Sa...

Re: When were you saved?

...Are you asking if I have received grace, or tongues? ... I'm asking if you have received God's Spirit, evidenced by speaking in tongues, just like all Jesus disciples (Acts 2:4, 33, 39; 10:44-48, 19:1-6) and me & all in the church I'm in. No, I do not speak in tongues. You will when you receive ...

Re: When were you saved?

Really? Where do you find evidence that Paul spoke in tongues as the evidence of saving faith? Are you suggesting Paul was saved at the same time as the Ephesians or are you presuming he did before based upon inference and your over-riding assumption? I see you have not responded to my previous res...

Re: When were you saved?

Ephesians 2:8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no-one can boast." ... Hi Danny, Paul, and the Ephesian church who he was writing to had all received the grace that saves by receiving the Holy Spiri...

Re: When were you saved?

... It's amazing that something that important would not have been mentioned by Christ directly Himself, don't you think? Especially something that was so key as to the the initial sign of salvation. Jesus said: "Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound t...

Re: When were you saved?

I'm thinking maybe those who want to make tongues now the sign of salvation (despite the fact that Acts 2, 8, 9, 10 and 19 speak of the Holy Spirit coming on people and only 3 of the 5 mention tongues so are we to conclude that the 2 where that is not mentioned are not real) ... So, unless God repe...

Re: When were you saved?

You should not be shocked, Jesus warns that "many" who call Him their Lord will be told "I never knew you", he's talking about "church-goers" not agnostics There are many here, that would say that verse applies to those who preach that grace alone through faith alone is not sufficient. Many that ta...

Re: When were you saved?

Tallman, Are you saying that if someone hasn't spoken in tongues, that that person doesn't have the Holy Spirit inside of him? Or, that someone who hasn't spoken in tongues isn't saved? RickD, Dogger - I , or rather the bible / God / Jesus is saying both since until you have the Spirit dwelling wit...

Re: When were you saved?

Tallman, From what I've been told, read, and listened to, I am already saved. I didn't completely understand what you said in your other post .... If you have any insights, then by all means, please help me. There is nothing more important to me than God and spending eternity in Heaven. Thanks! Hel...

Re: When were you saved?

Hi Dogger, you have repented and believed in Jesus as far as you have understood him. You are like the Samarians in Acts 8:5-12 (they were also baptised). Like them, you may not yet have received the Holy Spirit (see Acts 2:4, 33, 39 for details). This is important becuase you are still "in the fles...

Re: Jesus & the cross

Question. How did Jesus dieing on the cross save us? And from what? Good question, you need to understand that "salvation" is by re-uniting us with God, by us receiving His Spirit within us so we can know him and have his nature!! So, he saved us from a short, shallow existance where nothing really...
