    Encourage vs attack

    I agree that we see a complete range of peculiar viewpoints here. And sometimes to me it looks like everyone is pushing their particular sect or religious dogma rather than genuinely discussing the bible. And we must be careful not to accept heresies. But perhaps we should be more discerning...

    Encourage vs attack

    I'm all for fighting the war against evil. But we aren't supposed to be fighting each other all the time. It's counterproductive to say the least. In this regard we have a problem. Let's own it.

    Women cannot have authority in the congregation.

    I am wondering, among the women here, do any of you actually want or actively seek 'authority in the congregation'? I know I don't. Sometimes I have some information or an insight that might be useful even to men though. And I'm not comfortable with being confined to having to teach only other...

    Women cannot have authority in the congregation.

    And those women who went to the tomb first to care for Jesus' body. Because it was a job that made a Jew unclean- touching a dead body. It was left to the women. They were the first witnesses to his resurrection. Not the Apostles! It's good thing they weren't silent then. ;)

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    I've never seen this as a for/against situation. An either/or. If anything plagues the body of Christ in this day it's our inability to discuss things rationally. How far we are from a radiant & ready bride! I've never made an argument for a works-based salvation because I don't believe that...

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    I would add Romans 11:17-24 Where Paul warns of the possibility of Gentile Christians being cut off.

    The choices we make in our earthly, mortal life are the subject.

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    It isn't me you are arguing with. Are you calling the writer of Hebrews a liar? The whole counsel of scripture is what I believe. I've stated that I don't deny the security of our salvation more than once. I'm sorry that you can't accept that.

    This subject has nothing whatsoever to do with heaven.

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    I'm not denying any of that. While you have simply ignored the verses in Hebrews as if they are non-existent.

    Does the Book of Revelation tell us that those who refuse to take the MARK of the beast will be killed?

    Empire wide may be a more precise reading to reconcile it with the complete picture scripture gives us. Uniform control in every nook & cranny on the planet doesn't reconcile with Daniel & Ezekiel's descriptions of resistance- even the possible military resistance of whole nations. It is more...

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    Stupid, wicked & rare as it may be. It is possible. Jesus isn't FORCING us to remain in his fold. Below, Paul isn't describing people who didn't have the Holy Spirit to begin with. Hebrews 10 (NASB) 26 For if we go on sinning wilfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no...

    what will we be doing once we're in heaven with God (either by rapture or death)?

    My mistake! It's Zephaniah 3:17 Not 3:14 :rolleyes:

    what will we be doing once we're in heaven with God (either by rapture or death)?

    :love: One thing I look forward to more than anything else is this: (Zeph 3:14 CSB) "The Lord your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will be quiet in his love. He will delight in you with singing.” This reference is on earth but my point is...

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    The title is a bit on the aggressive side, yes. Perhaps that's frustration? The OSAS camp has been an aggressive entrenchment on this board for quite some time. Perhaps 'OSAS' has been overly simplified among some denominations? I am in no way arguing that our salvation through faith is not...

    Women cannot have authority in the congregation.

    You've touched on an important point. That there can be a kind of 'snobbery' on both sides of the road. The spiritual among us can trivialize the intellectual as much as the intellectual can trivialize the spiritual. As the church we should seek balance & perhaps the wisdom of Solomon. A time...

    I don't like to take it for granted either. He has shown me many times, through scripture, through Israel, through history & my own tendency to sin. Without him mankind is useless, hopeless, evil. Every chance he has given us we've/I've spoiled. That's why he had to give us something we couldn't...

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    "Who hopes for what he already has?" The Apostle talks about that. He refers to the body. The resurrection. We will be heirs to salvation when our bodies are finally glorified. Then our salvation will be complete. But the eternal security of our spirit was accomplished when put a new spirit in...

    Eternal Security - Most dangerous words ever preached: Once saved, always saved.

    Maybe it's not a doctrine. Just a point of discussion. It seems to me you always get bent out of shape when your dogma is challenged. Where are your discernment skills? You're always on the offensive with everyone. Both obvious heretics & genuine Christians with valid scriptural points get...
