    I for one have never heard in any Baptist church that men ever become angels.  
     
    Hebrews 2:7 (KJV)
    7  Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 
     
    In fact in the final judgement, we which are in heaven will be appointed judge of angels.
     
    1 Corinthians 6:3 (KJV)
    3  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

    Still waiting to see an answer to this... ↑
     
    You also neglected to highlight certain portions of the scriptures that you were highlighting...
     
     
    I've pointed this out before, but I'll humbly say it again...
     
    Nowhere, NOWHERE in scripture is OBedience to the Old Testament law said to give salvation...the only promises given for OBeying the law were physical promises...promises of blessings (for OBedience to the law) in the land or promises of cursing them and driving them from the land (for disOBedience to the law).
     
    What was "the mystery" (in relation to this subject we're speaking of) that Paul spoke of? It wasn't salvation by grace through faith; it was the church...that's the mystery. That both Jew and Gentile would be heirs together and part of the same body...the church.
     
    Ephesians 3:3-6
    3   How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
    4   Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
    5   Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
    6   That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
     
    Israel couldn't see that. They neglected their own scriptures and became self-righteous...
     
    Part of Israel's duty was to be a witness for God to the world...
     
    Isaiah 43:10-12
    10   Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
    11   I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
    12   I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
     
    ...however, they neglected that duty, and "went about to establish their own righteousness" by stumbling over the law. Rather than being a witness for God, they became a nation of self-righteous isolationists. They stumbled over the intent of the law, thinking that keeping the law made them righteous; therefore, since the law was given to them, the rest of the world were heathens to be avoided.
     
    God knew they couldn't keep the law, and that was the intent. The law was given to show them man's absolute incapacity to be self-righteous through works. They needed God's righteousness to be righteous, and that can only be imputed...not earned...and God's righteousness could only, can only, and will be only imputed by...his grace through faith.
     
    Salvation has always been by grace through faith. What "work" did Adam perform to get God's forgiveness when he sinned? What work did Enoch do? David? Isaiah? Where does the Bible say that man had to do "works"...whether to earn salvation...or as others here put it...in addition to their faith? It's simply not there.
     
     
    The Les Feldick argument. ↑
     
    1 Corinthians 1:12-13
    12   Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
    13   Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
     
    Paul didn't want undue exaltation being given to him. Beameup, let's be thankful to God for the writings of Paul; they were inspired by God, but let's only lift up the Lord Jesus Christ...he's the only one deserving of glory.

    woolysheep reacted to John81 in Mark This Book -Mansions Of The Heart- As Deceptive! (A Book Review)   
    This seems to be a growing theme.
     
    And yet some people still wonder why I have spoken out over the years when a Christian, especially a pastor, quotes Mother Teresa or Pope John Paul in a favorable manner.
     
    It doesn't matter if that particular quote is a good one. There are many better sources one could quote the same sort of saying from. By favorably quoting these Catholics (or others) there is the appearance of acceptance attached.
     
    We should be able to see clearly now where these "little things" have led. Yoking with Catholics for the sake of broader "evangelism"...for the sake of unity...for the sake of political expediency...for the sake of the poor...and a host of other "good things", all leads to one place: Rome; which leads untold millions to hell.

    I read much more than I write. It goes without saying that it is always of benefit to hear God's Word and discussed, with the goal to edify His people (2Tim 3:16-17).
     
    It has been frustrating when some join OB only to attack.
     
    Also some believers need to behave somewhat  a little better at times with the understanding of not knowing who may be reading (Rom14:13) (1Cor10:31-33) 
     
    Some who have left may still look-in without logging on, so some may yet come back.
     
    All in all OB is a great site to access and mingle with fellow believers.

    woolysheep reacted to John81 in Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor   
    It really depends upon what we believe the pastor to be in the wrong about. Is he wrong about the color he wants the church to be painted or is he wrong about his presentation of the Gospel?
     
    I've never met a pastor I was in 100% agreement with but the two pastors I had for the longest I was in very high agreement with and on the matters where I would have a disagreement they were not key matters of doctrine or anything like that.
     
    The one pastor I did have which I had an important disagreement with I spoke to privately and got nowhere. There were two others in the church who had the same issue, both had spoken to the pastor to no effect either. We approached the pastor together and told him we would like to discuss the issue with him. The pastor agreed, made an appointment, we met, shared our concerns (with applicable Scripture) and the pastor sat there mostly in silence as we talked. When we finished the pastor made it very clear to us that he was running the church, he wasn't about to change things back or stop what he was doing and if we didn't like it we could leave. Then he stood up, said he wouldn't talk about it anymore and showed us the door. We left and went church hunting.
     
    So, if the disagreement is over a matter of real importance, ask to speak with the pastor about it. If the disagreement is over a matter of lesser importance, consider the matter very carefully and prayerfully as to whether it's worth bringing up or not. In both cases, be in much prayer, follow the Lord's leading.

    Haha @ heartstrings, my family and I are from Texas. Though we've lived in Illinois for about 23 years now, our southern lingo never really left.

    Woolysheep, funny you say that! I've been "teaching" my family how to say some things in an Aussie accent. Like, 'Raise Up Lights' you just razer blades lol. Then 'Good Eye Might' that would be G'Day Mate!

    woolysheep reacted to John81 in Communication   
    No, that's not a scientific fact.
     
    Many postings are made too hastily, sometimes with too much emotion, sometimes more from the flesh than the Spirit, often without enough thought or proof reading.
     
    We can help the communication process by taking more time with our writing. We should post from a position of calmness, not frustration, anger or rage. We should be careful not to assume a word or statement is meant to be bad, unless such is clearly the case. It would help to ask questions if we are concerned about something and to do so in a good manner. If we post out of love, our posts will be much more readable and less likely to upset.
     
    All too often the flesh is evident in our postings when we act offended, lash out, make a discussion personal, take verbal jabs, accuse and insinuate.
     
    None of us are perfect so there will always be some miscommunication issues. If we really worked at communicating, rather than simply trying to prove ourselves right at any cost, that would be a big help. If we were truly posting for the glory of the Lord, in accord with His commands regarding love and the other fruits of the Spirit, remembering we are His family called to love one another and help one another, that would change the way we post.
