Re: Romans 9:13

Not sure the ref to homosexuality, but do you not believe homosexuality is a sin, and do you believe their are Christian homosexuals? Matthew Henry Concise Commentary... ..."God foresaw both Esau and Jacob as born in sin, by nature children of wrath even as others. If left to themselves they would h...

Re: What exactly is "repentence"?

I'm so glad this post is under Theology, lol!!! Anyways I'd like to give a brief answer as well. I'd say "repentance" is a gift and an ability to accept and use under another gift "free-will". Repentance is conviction of the Holy Spirit literally meaning "to feel regret for sins or crimes". Now I us...

Re: The power of sin

Oh I know, I understood all that, but what happens if we aren't obedient and we do sin, choose, continue... etc. Do we not become reprobates?

Re: 1 Corinthians 9:20: Paul said he was not under the law?

Okay, Brother... this is what I have. Please understand this is not for us to agree but to only show you "scripture" and then let you decide for yourself? I'm posting scripture! However, I'm open minded and I go with an open mind ready to learn and that I might be wrong. Hope you hold the same posit...

Re: 1 Corinthians 9:20: Paul said he was not under the law?

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are...

Re: The power of sin

Destroy you from what... "salvation"! What is it about sin in particular your most concern about? That is my question. Will it cause a "shipwreck faith" as Paul states, will it move you from a secure position? as in if your once saved always saved secured, sealed, forever and nothing can move you; l...

Jehovah Witness and Christianity

Today at the gas pump a lady (Jehovah Witness) approached me; handed me some watchtower pamphlets and proceeded to walk away. I quickly asked her if she believed Jesus was the Messiah? She said oh yeah we definitely believe Jesus as Messiah... I said good; she said its just we don't believe that He ...

Re: Leviticus 19:28 says Tatoos are a No No

You most certainly did not answer my questions or shall I say question! You may have thought in your little response that I call a rant, considering you went way off topic from the very context of my post, assuming you were answering a question I asked. I know who the "WORD" is, and I've never eleva...

Canuckster said "The Scriptures are inspired and important but it's quite possible to elevate them to the position of a 4th member of the Trinity and in so doing make an idol of them and miss Jesus." Thanks for avoiding my questions and going on your little rant, that really pertained to nothing in ...

Re: Leviticus 19:28 says Tatoos are a No No

Please tell me what the lens of Jesus, since you seem to possess it (or would this be opinion of interpretation? ) says in Leviticus 19:28 that we should understand? What was he saying? Do you think Jesus would condone tattoos, be it pertaining to scripture and God or just random personal preference...

Re: Leviticus 19:28 says Tatoos are a No No

I'm not making an extreme claim, this is something really happening in Georgia. Its not an extreme position for these are real positions people hold, just the same as one whom doesn't live the lifestyle but claims their saved and you see no fruit. They say I don't have to read my bible nor go to chu...
