You asked me 10 questions 2 weeks ago that should have allowed you to know my doctrinal statement of faith. Go back to your post, or post the questions again, and i will answer them again. My church affiliation is my business, not yours. My posts make it clear where I come from. So ask away?
If that was supposed to be a blast at me, let me help you to know me better:
1) I do not hold the truth in unrigheousness. I try to do the will of God to the best of my knowledge. I believe in God, I trust in God, I have faith in God, I have been born-again, I am engaged in the work of the Lord. I could do more, but I do try to walk in the good works that he has before ordained for me to walk in.
2) I believe in the name of the only begotten Son of God, thus according to the scripture I am not condemned. In fact according to John 3:16, since I believe in the only begotten Son of God, I am saved, just like you think you are saved.
Does not matter and you missed the point....was Jesus Christian or Paul? How about John? The point is...God's people are easily offended in this age and for the most part have no ability to take a little heat, sarcasm and or being questioned intently with zeal.......I read what he wrote and IMO it was not that big of a deal nor was it anti-Christian.......just saying
Mixing works with grace is what God says to do.
He gives the grace for us to do the good works.
That is not a counterfeit gospel.
And how do YOU know who is saved and who is not?
Did God go on vacation and leave YOU in charge??
Only God knows who is saved.
Galatians 6:7-10 7Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
We are not to be deceived...we are to do good
and IN TIME we will reap what we sow IF we do not grow weary.
Those that believe they are somehow "sealed" in the Holy Spirit are sadly mistaken since this expression is not even understood in our day.
AND, we are only sealed for as long as we WANT TO BE.
You know......the bible is clear concerning what saves a man...by grace through faith we are given the irrevocable gift of life.....I have seen the workers for state the following....
a. We are not saved right now
b. We are not sealed in this life by the Spirit
c. We cannot understand the sealing of the spirit
d. They conflate justification with on going sanctification
e. They peddle the same belief that Jesus equates to the MANY that come before his throne saying Lord, Lord......
By the bible's doctrine and according to their own doctrine the above statements make complete sense when dealing with those who embellish faith with their self help guru doctrine......
