    I do not profess to be perfect, orderly, etc in my Christian life but one thing I do know, Jesus came to save sinners and I am one of those.

    We humans do not know what's in the heart of another. We don't know what's in the mind of another. If we concentrate on our own heart, mind our lives will be full to the brim. Just saying. The only time I get riled up is whenever God's Word explaining and showing eternal salvation is...

    How do we know if we have eternal life? Romans 10:13 “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 1 John 5:13 New International Version I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. King James Bible These...

    Who are we to decide if someone is saved or not? Who are we to decide if one is doing enough or not enough works for our Lord? Who are we ... period? In the grand scheme of the universe we are but a tiny, tiny, tiny dot. Anything we were, are, ever hope to be is up to our yielding to our...

    Good morning. Here is my morning devotion: John 6:37 "All that the Father gives Me will come to me and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out." Eph: 2:8,9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves. It is a gift from God; not as a result of...

    With all the talk about cancer (I hate that disease) just an FYI, I'm a 13 year survivor.

    Mark 5:36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

    I'm not an "end of time" searcher. We have no clue when that will happen. I'm more concerned about day by day living and that can be tough sometimes. I'm more concerned about those I know and care about becoming either part of the fold or get closer to our Heavenly Father. Just saying

    Mark 9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. This says nothing about "continuing to believe in order to keep salvation." God knew/knows we have times of doubt.

    Judges1318 said: "The problem is osas has devolved even further into a doctrine that says you don't even have to continue to believe in Christ to be saved when He comes back. That's where it crosses the line from being just another innocent...

    The "church" is the Body of Christ. Not a building, temple, etc. The issue is that God does the saving, not us. Genuine faith? God decides that as well. Only God knows the "heart" of man. I go by His word that if I believe in Him and His work on the Cross unto salvation, I am saved...
