Macs are for people who have more money than I do.

Lots of wolves in his pack, but evidently no alpha males.  When one chooses to surround oneself with yes men then it is not likely that they will have the kind of judgement necessary to run an organization properly.  Just as all mega churches this one was run as business organization and not a genuine church and you would not expect Godly leadership.  I wouldn't anyway.  They are houses built on sand.




#392637 Paul The Heretic

Posted by ThePilgrim on 01 November 2014 - 01:36 PM

The Jesuits are coming, are coming!  No they aren't!  They are here!  

This whole Paul the heretic or whatever sounds a lot like Romish talk to me.

This whole bit about "I love Jesus but the bible is a lie" has just been so overworked by those who hate God that I am surprised anyone would engage in a discussion with anyone so so enamored with the position.

The man, if it is one, is obviously a TROLL looking for a fight.  Don't give him one but just tell him to go away.




#392491 Father, Forgive Them

James 2:10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. KJV
If this is the case, as I believe it is, praying that a specific single sin be forgiven and no others would seem to be an empty gesture in that it would seem to accomplish nothing.  The person prayed for is still going to hell because of all the other sins.
 
It is my belief that just as happens today the Holy Spirit convicts and leads one to understand their need of repentance and salvation and it is by this method that The Father answered the Son's prayer . . . . by the Holy Spirit acting in the lives of those prayed for and not by an instant granting of forgiveness without repentance.

Yes, but then all of their sins would have been forgiven at that moment.

 

The point you raise would lead us to ask if Jesus was only praying for those few who may have been converted or for all those who put Him to death.

 

If we broaden this consideration to include Stephen, we only know of Saul (who became Paul) being converted from among his killers; so was Stephens prayer only applicable to Saul/Paul or was he praying for all those putting him to death?

None of us really know who of the people that Jesus or Stephen prayed for in the instances discussed except for Saul became saved or not, so why do so many assume they did not?  Surely nobody assumes that the only people that were saved are mentioned in the scripture and those not saved are not.

How can I think that God would put limits on His forgiveness for others when I see that He put no limits on His forgiveness for me?

And after all the claptrap the people who believe that drivel end up with nothing of value  . . . . no salvation . . . . no heaven . . . . no Jesus.

I could be wrong but it could be a fact that our world is also full of "dark" energy.

My opinion.  In the case of Christ at least, the culprits were not immedietly forgiven, but were to be worked upon by the holy spirit who convicted them of their sin and they came to Christ at a later time . . . . some in minutes . . . . some in days or years.  Recall the statement of the soldier involved in the crucifixion?

Calvin and Arminius were both mistaken in some of their doctrines (very important doctrines) so why do people want to call themselves by there names.  I read the bible, I follow the teachings of my savior and God,Jesus Christ.  I follow no man because I find that most of them are just as messed up about some things as I am.  All this to say, I am a Christian . . . . call me by no other name please.
