    Cart before the horse indeed!



    Amen! It is through faith IN CHRIST alone (and not by the merits of our works) that we are justified on account of Christ (Romans 3:24; 5:1); yet the faith that...

    Works are the fruit, by product, and demonstrative evidence of our faith, but works are not the essence of faith and works are not the means of our salvation. Faith is the root and works are the...

    Hello dirtfarmer,

    The demons certainly know or believe who Jesus is (Matthew 8:28; Mark 3:11) and they also believe that there is one God (James 2:19), but they do not believe/entrust their...

    The reason why you are having trouble seeing that the belief of these people fell short of genuine or consummated belief resulting in salvation is because you seem to think that ALL belief is the...

    I still see no scriptures that support your argument above. Why are you so obsessed with YOUR doctrine? Is John 3:18 divine truth? - He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not...

    Salvation (4991) (soteria from soter = Savior in turn from sozo = save, rescue, deliver) describes the rescue or deliverance from danger, destruction and peril. Where did Jesus say that we receive...

    We don't receive salvation and the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit within apart from believing in the Lord Jesus Christ/believing the gospel (Acts 10:43-47; 11:17; 15:8,9; 16:31; Ephesians 1:13)....

    Amen! There is a stage in the progress of belief in Jesus that "falls short of genuine or consummated belief resulting in salvation." See John 2:23-25 (where their "belief" is clearly superficial in...

    Why is the Holy Spirit within you? Because you believed the gospel or because you kept His commandments? Do believers keep His commandments in order to receive the Holy Spirit and become saved or...

    No. Acts 10:43 - To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins. 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell...

    No. In order for that to be, they would have to become UN-born again, UN-regenerated, UN-sealed by the Holy Spirit.

    You are puffed up by what knowledge you think you have. The writer of Hebrews is addressing a very large group of Hebrew brethren not infallibly knowing everyone's heart. This admonition is addressed...

    The Book of Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians (which not everyone in the group was necessarily a genuine believer) who were tempted under the threat of persecution to return to Judaism. The...

    Where are the scriptures that support your theories about disbelieving, disobedient, foolish children of God not ruling and reigning with Christ in His kingdom and spending that time in hell instead,...

    When did I say that I enjoy watching trashy movies? So you are comparing yourself with people who you believe watch too many trashy movies?



    Jesus here uses hyperbole to show the seriousness of...

    I find it strange that the Church Fathers taught salvation through water baptism yet also taught that salvation is through faith in Christ alone:

    Clement of Rome: "We also, being called through...

    Amen! Sounds like superstition to me. For example it was common practice that the candidate was immersed three times. Before baptism, the candidate was anointed with "oil of exorcism" while the...

    Is that how John describes God's children?

    1 John 2:3 - By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep...
