  • Bio I was raised in a broken home, I never really went to churches at all growing up except for maybe 5 or 6 times at random churches when I was younger, I became hopelessly addicted to drugs in my teen years, My life was falling apart, I was miserable and without hope in this world, then I started going to a Baptist church with a friend, I heard the Gospel and I repented of my sins and turned to Jesus Christ to save me, My life has been incredible since the Lord came into my life. I go to Fairhaven Baptist College

    You need to read Ecclesiastes chapter 2. You think having your dreams fulfilled with satisfy you.. but that's not true. Only God can satisfy someone. it's a lie of Satan to be told something else can.
  3. The Tithe, for the Church or not?

    I have gone back and forth on the issue of tithing for a while, and have done some studying on my own. I am still not quite sure what I think. I probably lean more towards a grace giving position.   What position do you hold to, and why?

    I have placed Richard on my ignore list, he is a heretick and worthy to be shunned, he has been shown clear passages and teaching and willfully rejects them. I believe he is an apostate and I believe we should ban him for the sake of others on the board who are not as strong in the faith, I have sent him personal messages back and forth a lot, he is not interested in taking an honest look and evaluating verses in their context, he simply plays a game very much similiar to the Jehovah's Witnesses when you try to talk to them about the Deity of Jesus Christ, he just goes in circles with a handful of passages and ideas and when you refute them he moves on to the next one in his cycle. I encourage us all to stop wasting our time.

    So instead of responding to the actual verse, you resort to an emotional based argument?  THE BIBLE SAYS SAUL WENT TO BE WITH SAMUEL! What part of this do you not understand? This CLEAR verse should make you realize you are obviously misinterpreting other passages. The fact is, you can still sin and go to heaven, because Jesus paid for your sins. End of story. I can go out and kill someone and still go to heaven theoretically, killing is a sin the same as lying, or lusting. Have you had any lustful thoughts today?  What if you die while having a negative thought about someone else? I am sorry but I am calling you out, you are a self righteous hypocrite no different than the Pharisees, you pretend to have a cloak of humility, but inside your proud, thinking you have some part in keeping your salvation. If I recall you earlier called us on this board "***holes" , this means you lost your salvation because you are suppose to "let no corrupt communication out of your mouth" people like you always want to magnify "Great" sins like murder and the like, but even a wicked thought is sinful, Better hope that you have pure thoughts the moment when you die. theoretically according to you, if you die in a few minutes while having a evil thought about me before you have a chance to repent, you will die and go to heaven. You are a false teacher, and you teach works salvation whether you want to admit it or not.

    My Brethren , Richard states that if someone falls into sin and doesn't not repent of it and dies in their sin, that they go to hell. King Saul in the bible refutes this: in this verse Samuel is the one speaking: 2nd Samuel 28:19 Moreover the LORD will also deliver Israel with thee into the hand of the Philistines: and to morrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me: the LORD also shall deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines.

    I encourage you to really dig into the meaning and essence of Chapter 3:1-3 and 5:1-4 I think an important question is, what is the difference between the Galatians trying to be "made perfect by the flesh" with their keeping of the law, and your "maintaining your salvation". If you really will study the book of Galatians and ask God to reveal the truth to you, I trust the Lord to show you that the essence of those two things is the same.  The problem with Galatia is that they were adding the keeping of Law to faith in Christ for salvation, Jews were saying you had to have faith AND keep the Law, God condemns that as a false gospel. It's a false gospel that adds self effort or a maintaining of the law to be justified, and really at the basic essence it's no different than teaching you can lose yours salvation. Trying to maintain your salvation is trying to "be made perfect by the flesh" You eternal life is not maintained by your self effort, it's maintained by the Spirit of Christ that has sealed you according to the book of Ephesians.  3 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?   Let's paraphrase vs 2: Did you receive salvation and the Holy Spirit by self effort, or by simple trust in the Gospel? and vs 3:  Are you such a fool, having begun in the Spirit with childlike faith, now made perfect or complete by self effort?   Note also: 5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.   You have made reference to falling from grace, but that passage you quote actually refutes your doctrine. in verse 1 Paul warns them about being brought under the bondage of trying to keep the Old Testament Law for justification, in your case it could be applied to you bringing yourself under the bondage and burden of "maintaining your salvation" in verse 2, Paul tells them that their circumcision, or trying to earn righteousness through an aspect of the law, will make Christ of no effect, in other words, when you add your self effort of maintenance, Christ profits you nothing. in Verse 3, if someone is going to be justified by the Law, he is obligated to keep every single point, because under the Old Testament according to Deuteronomy a curse was placed on those who failed to keep ALL of the law. Under the New Covenant we are justified by the fact that Christ kept and fulfilled the Law complete,y and his righteousness is imputed unto us the moment we place our faith in Christ for the first time. We can apply this to your situation, because you claim that we must abide in Christ and maintain our salvation, if that is true, then I would like to point a few things out. first, if you are going to claim that, then you are obligated to keep the all of the commandments of Christ perfectly, the only way to abide in Christ according to John 15 is to not have any sin in your heart at all times, this would mean every single time that you have a sinful thought, you are now not abiding in Christ, and according to you, this means every time you sin you lose your salvation, if you want to claim that abiding in Christ. And if you really know yourself, this will cause you to realize that it is basically impossible for you to keep your own salvation, because you still have the sin nature that takes control of you at times. in vs 4, Paul rebukes the Galatians because they left the simple faith of just trusting in Christ and his work on the cross alone for salvation, in this way he tells them they have fallen from grace, by very definition grace is something we do not deserve, For you to add "maintaining" to grace, is to make grace no more grace, you have now turned it into works, Salvation is a free gift given, when you had maintenance to this gift you cause it to cease becoming grace, by very nature grace is something given to INSPITE of your actions.  Ironically, vs 4 is actually directed to people like you, people who think they have to continue though self effort and strife and battle to keep their salvation.  let's paraphrase this passage. vs 1 Stand fast in the freedom from self effort where Christ has made us free, and be not again entangled with the yoke of bondage to self effort. vs 2 Behold I say unto you, that if you try to maintain with works, Christ profits you nothing vs 3 For whoever thinks maintenance is necessary, is required to maintain in perfectly with a single error vs 4 Christ is of no value to you, who think you must maintain your salvation, you have fallen away from simply receiving salvation as a gift that you cannot do anything to earn or keep. Richard, you have fallen from grace in the true sense of this passage, and the sense is not in losing your salvation, you have fallen from the true faith, by adding works and self effort to simple faith in Christ. Repent.

    I would say your anxiety is a good indication that God is convicting you and trying to change your beliefs and you are fighting against him. the scripture says "great peace have they which love thy law and nothing shall offend them" it also says that "thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee" Richard, if it was true that you could fall away and lose your salvation, I would never have peace, because I would always be worried about whether I was going to fall away, that is not how God works, You are under the influence of Satan.  Abiding in Christ has nothing to do with salvation stop equating not abiding in Christ with losing your salvation, you are reading this into it. Being disqualified from the race of faith has nothing to do with making it to heaven, it's talking about eternal rewards likes crowns not being won..again you are equating salvation with this due to your own bias. Fighting the good fight? What does that have to do with salvation? we are just fighting a fight against Satan who is trying to keep us unfruitful for Christ, nothing to do with salvation. I will post these verses again: "he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."   “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”  Let's break down this verse grammatically, shall not come into condemnation is future tense, notice Jesus did not say "is not under condemnation" but will not. Right now if you believe on Christ, he promises that in the future you will not come into condemnation.  This is very clear, Repent of your false doctrine.

    "he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." was God lying when he gave us that verse by Inspiration? “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”  Or was he lying when he said "shall not come into condemnation"?

    Eternal Life is not a car that you have to maintain. Let's be honest here, you are teaching works salvation, the only difference is you believe you have to do the works after getting your "salvation"  at the end of the day you are no different from a Catholic, Lutheran, or a Methodist, The Catholic has his sacraments, and you have your "maintaining" . you really are no different.

    What is the real difference between earning your salvation and maintaining it?  not a single one.
