    "works do not precede salvation"?

    That connects walking in the light as "descriptive" of "children of God" and ONLY children of God are "in the light." (Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14; Ephesians 5:8) Acts 13:39 - and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of...

    "works do not precede salvation"?

    I have dealt with "walk in the light" many times as well on here and on other Christian forum sites and my comments are typically ignored by works-salvationists who abuse these verses to erroneously create a third camp of children of God who walk in darkness and are no longer cleansed from all...

    Born Again--the Early Church Fathers and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints agree

    Integral component? As if faith doesn't exist without baptism? Not hardly. Why the "AND" between believes AND is baptized if baptism is an integral component to belief in Christ? One believes prior to receiving water baptism and belief is still belief before, during and after receiving water...

    Born Again--the Early Church Fathers and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints agree

    Church Fathers on Justification by Faith Question: Are there examples from church history of leaders in the Catholic Church who taught salvation by grace through faith alone, or something approaching it? Answer: Yes, definitely. Most of the quotations from the Church Fathers and Catholic...

    Born Again--the Early Church Fathers and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints agree

    Roman Catholics put a lot of stock into the writings of the early church fathers as well. I even hear Roman Catholics quote the early church fathers to support infant baptism. Do Mormons support infant baptism as well? Irenaeus “He [Jesus] came to save all through himself; all, I say, who...

    Born Again--the Early Church Fathers and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints agree

    Amen! Mark 16:16 - He who believes and is baptized will be saved (general cases without making a qualification for the unusual case of someone who believes but is not baptized) but he who does not believe will be condemned. The omission of baptized with "does not believe" shows that Jesus does...

    The Gospel Paul received and Preached

    Amen! The gospel is the "good news" of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that BELIEVES.. (Romans 1:16) To "believe" the gospel is to trust in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ as the ALL-sufficient...

    Jesus is not literally in the bread and wine

    Jesus is the Bread of Life and just as bread nourishes our physical bodies, Jesus gives and sustains eternal life to believers. John 6:35 - "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst." Jesus uses figurative language here to...

    Faith Alone

    I was not talking to you and all you want to do is argue and stir up contention anyway. Reasoning through the scriptures with you is not difficult. It's IMPOSSIBLE!

    Faith Alone

    Notice that - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (vs. 9) is IN CONTRAST TO - If we say that we have no sin, (present tense) we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us (vs. 8) and - If we say that we have...

    Cornelius and the Gentiles with him had the gift of the Holy Spirit poured on them (Acts 10:45)

    Romans 8:30 - Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. ALL of them. Notice how Paul uses the past tense for a future event to stress it's certainty.

    Cornelius and the Gentiles with him had the gift of the Holy Spirit poured on them (Acts 10:45)

    There are 3 tenses to salvation that often get mixed up by works-salvationists. 1. We have been saved from the PENALTY of sin (justification) 2. We are being saved from the POWER of sin (ongoing sanctification) 3. We will be saved from the PRESENCE of sin (glorification)

    Faith Alone

    1 John 1:8 - If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us...
