    Are we justified by faith when we have faith?

    Justification and salvation are two different things. We are justified when we believe but salvation is a future event. Look at what Paul says in Phil 3:11-12 - "11 if somehow I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already grasped it all or have already become...

    Salvation "by faith alone"

    Because obedience to Christ is necessary towards salvation (Heb 5:9). You won't be saved.

    How would you respond to this argument regarding Christ's human ignorance?

    The nature of Jesus. The early church spent 4 centuries (at least) debating this. I see you are quoting Luke, John, and Matthew. We assume that they all agreed on what Jesus' divinity means but the question is did they really? The answer to this just may answer your questions. What does Jesus...

    There Is No Such Thing As An Atheist

    "Disagreement" is the problem. I know people who are atheists. There's a channel on YouTube called the Atheist Experience. The OP states "There is no such thing as an atheist." There is a such thing and to say there is not is denying reality. I see you are saying that God has revealed Himself...

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    The "right to bear arms" did not come from God. The US constitution didn't come from God. Men in the 18th century wrote it. It's a man made document. That's why it's been amended as time has gone on. I never called anyone uncivilized. I said that the US (which is a civilized nation) is...

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    More guns is not the answer. That's like saying to put out a fire I need more fire. Morality is not the issue either. In most murders, people snap for one reason or the other and go kill someone. Most murders with guns are one individual killing another.

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    We in the US are infatuated with guns in a way that no other civilized people are.

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    That's why I am saying that the US gun culture is the problem an d needs to be addressed. Again .... I am not for taking guns away from people. I do think that there are too many guns being manufactured though.

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    I am not pro gun either. I think the 2nd amendment was written in a different time and is misapplied today. I am also not for taking guns from people. I think America's biggest issue is it's gun culture. If we could solve that then our gun issue would disappear.

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    You are correct. Guns don't kill people. People use guns to kill other people and guns are typically their weapon of choice. People who are pro gun support the widespread availability of guns. This widespread availability is instrumental in the deaths of many. The most common case is that people...

    There Is No Such Thing As An Atheist

    I know plenty of atheists so I disagree with the OP. They usually fall into two camps. 1 - Convinced there aren't any gods. 2 - Convinced the god of the Christian bible doesn't exist. Agnostic on whether there is some god out there somewhere. None of them live their lives dependent on any kind...

    AS a Christian can you ever vote DEMOCRATIC

    I agree with your statement here. Typically I find that people who are anti abortion support other things that kill people such as being pro gun. I am not saying that Magdalena is pro gun but this is typically what I find with those who are anti abortion. Don't kill the babies but let's not do...

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    Agreed. That's one of my main points. The bible says that a lot of things save. Heb 5:9 says that obedience saves. We need to look at how these things work together to save us. Otherwise we have a bunch of contradictions.

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    Right. "Kicking the wall" has no prophetic relevance. I was just saying the power is in obedience by faith and not in the elements that are involved. Water in and of itself has no power. God saves us when we go down in the water by faith.

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    You are misunderstanding the passage. 1 Peter 3:20 - Peter is discussing eight souls that were saved through the water. They weren't saved by water but they had to go through the water to be saved. God saved them in the ark through the waters of the flood. 1 Peter 3:21 - Peter starts off with...

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    The scripture in 1 Peter 3:21 says "Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you ...." I don't know what else that could mean. What does the bible say about baptism. It says: Mark 16:16 - It is involved in the salvation equation Acts 2:38 - It is for the forgiveness of sins Acts 16:33 - It was...

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    The problem here is that the HS is not a sign of salvation. The HS falling on these people is a sign that they are proper candidates for salvation just like the Jews were in Acts ch 2. If they can receive the HS then they can be saved just like us is what Peter is saying. In Acts ch 2 no one was...

    Show me in the bible where baptism is called a "sign."

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    1 Peter 3:20 gives more evidence of salvation involving water baptism. It talks about how the eight who were saved were brought safely through the "water." Vs 21 starts off with the words "Corresponding to that..." It is referring back to the previous passage and how the eight were saved through...

    What Is Wrong With the Church of Christ?

    The passage says "baptism now saves us ...." What else could it mean? Cognitive dissonance man.
