    WHAT IS MOST URGENT?

    "...I will show you my faith by my deeds." - James 2:18 My end time faith is the same as James' 1st century faith. Genuine saving faith is evidenced by the works it produces.

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    We don't need to change the word. We just need to understand that 'justify' has more than one Biblical definition. But if we were to change the word in order to make things clearer the best word to use in James 2 would be 'validation'. Righteous works validate faith as being genuine and residing...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    I suspect the exact opposite is true. He's either a defeated believer, or an unbeliever all together, and he is lashing out at Christians and trying to make a case that they are no different than he.

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    Unbelievers do indeed live in sin. They do that because they don't have the Spirit: "7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. 9 You, however, are not in the realm of the...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    You are terribly mistaken. The standard for works showing that you are saved is not that you have achieved the perfection of Christ. The standard for works showing that you are saved is that the works of the Spirit are ever increasing in your life. "8For if you possess these qualities in...

    WHAT IS MOST URGENT?

    And yet these scriptures speak of hindered prayer. So it's obvious that grace doesn't mean what you think it means. Grace simply means you don't deserve what you have received. It doesn't mean you will always have what you don't deserve to have no matter what. This profound misunderstanding of...

    7...be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray." - 1 Peter 4:7 7During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission." - Hebrews 5:7 "3When...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    May I offer a little advice? Don't try to change anybody. Just put what you think is the truth out there and let it do it's work. Someday, somewhere, perhaps in the depths of a severe personal depression, a divorce, a lost job, a profound illness, or a besetting sin, or a struggle with faith...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    What I don't do is live in evil works. "21 ...those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." - Galatians 5:21 I do not have the mindset of the flesh. What's happening to me is I am moving in progress towards the perfection of Christ: "8For if you possess these qualities in...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    One part of what you said is correct. Present believing is no automatic guarantee of future believing. But the person who is presently believing is most definitely presently saved. "2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you." - 1 Corinthians 15:2 'Are...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    No, that's not good enough. Peter says to make every effort to confirm that you are saved: "10Therefore, my brothers and sisters, a make every effort to confirm your calling and election." - 2 Peter 1:10

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    "The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. 8The one who does what is sinful is of the devil..." - 1 John 3:7-8 "5Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    Assurance that you are saved comes from how you live. For example: "13Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus." - 1 Timothy 3:13

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    No. I'm a 1 John 3:7-10 believer. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to...

    THE LIE IN LORDSHIP SALVATION THEORY

    Everybody knows this. You're preaching to the choir. Unless you want to address unbelievers, and fringe movements of unbelievers associating themselves with the true church there is no reason to keep bringing this up in the church. Especially now since the new osas movement in the church uses...
