  1. The Two Things Justification&Standing in Grace

    Hmm.  Never heard of Pinto.  A saved person is only righteous through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  Christ is our mediator between God and ourselves.  Gotta run!!
  2. Brother and Sisters In Christ

    How about some scripture to back up your position?  And when are you going to share with us your testimony?
  3. "Mark Them"

    I wish the owner of this forum would apply this verse to you.  This is a forum for Independent, Fundamental, Soul-Winning, Bible-Believing Local Church Baptists.  It is not a forum for universal hyper-dispensationalist protestants promoting heresy and apostasy. Paul also said to follow Christ; the Ruckmanites always forget that one. 
  4. That wily serpent has concocted yet another way to consign millions more to hell.  However, it's really a new name for an old trick.
  5. Ambassadors for Christ (our "job description")

    Not at all Pastor!  We're to mark them, reprove them, rebuke them and avoid them.  We do this to protect ourselves and our loved ones and our local church.
  6. Brother and Sisters In Christ

    Why are you hi-jacking this thread with something so off-topic?  I think you should take this anti-church diatribe and start a new thread with it. 
  7. Brother and Sisters In Christ

    What are the biblical definition(s) of a saint to accept a person as a brother or sister in Christ?
  8. Ambassadors for Christ (our "job description")

    Ahh yes, let's not forget to tell us how smart you folks are and how stupid we are: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” - Romans 1:22 "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." - Proverbs 13:20 "Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise." 1 Corinthians 3:18
  9. The Forum of brotherly/sisterly love

    Maybe so.  I always rejected the thinking of putting form before function.  I know quite a few foolish people who will continue in sin, double down even, because they did not like how a person addressed their sin even though it was done biblically.  This is not to say that being mean or condescending is ok, it is not.  Someone expressing anger over sin however is not being unloving with a brother or sister in Christ.  Maybe not.  
  10. The Forum of brotherly/sisterly love

    No, I'll stand by my earlier statement.  It is loving and not unkind to, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2 That being said Wretched, you applied 2 Timothy 2:24 to my statement which references 2 Timothy 4:2.  One is not right and the other wrong, both are correct.  Just as it was not unkind or unloving for Christ to clear the temple in the manner in which he did, it is not unkind to deal directly with things contrary to the scriptures.
  11. Ambassadors for Christ (our "job description")

    For a moment I thought I was reading an episode of the twilight zone and then realized it was the protestants at online baptist!  
  12. Man-made DNA

    False, this is an outright heresy.     While you might be here during the tribulation, I'll be at home with the Lord.
  13. Most sinful/Least sinful American cities

    Interesting, but we must remember that AFAIK Trulia is a secular organization attempting to judge sin. Not mentioned are places like New York City, where more children are selfishly aborted in the womb than born alive each day.  What is a more heinous act than that? Watching the debate tonight once again makes clear, that righteousness comes not from man but from Jesus Christ, none of those men running for office will acknowledge America's sin problem as they are trusting in the voter, man, rather than God to become head of this nation.  In all likelihood they wouldn't even know what I'm talking about and they were just as clueless into thinking that its ok for our precious women to leave their first estate and defile themselves and reduce the combat effectiveness of our military by serving in even more ratings throughout the armed services.
  14. The Worldwide Flood

    That's not danger, that's Bible man!
  15. The Two Things Justification&Standing in Grace

    You should not concern yourself with those Egyptian bibles as they are frauds, of the devil, designed to separate man from God.  Unlike the manuscripts that make up the Received Text and the King James Bible, the Critical Text has murky and obscure origins, it was supposedly hidden away for centuries and that fact alone exposes that it is not of God.  Sinaiticus in all likelihood did not exist before the 1840s. As for the two verses, the second verse just builds upon the first.  A saved person has peace with God through Christ and therefore has hope in God's glory.  Grace is mentioned here as well, and grace is an unmerited, un paid for gift, the sacrifice of Christ, His shed blood, washing away our sins.  Christ is man's mediator between himself and God.
