    A Slave to sin

    Okay, thanks. I missed that. That was a reference to Cornelius in the words of Peter in acts 10: Acts 10: 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation [and religion] he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness...

    Eternal life......when?

    The question is not what you mean by it, but what Paul meant by it; and you don’t have to look very far, because he tells us.

    Eternal life......when?

    The way your question is framed necessitates an explanation. That he lives “by the faith of the Son of God”. That is in his own words. I think that I did. Where do you get the idea from the context that it means what you think it does? That is the question that you need to answer before...

    A Slave to sin

    I am not following you. We are discussing Christian theology, which is derived from scripture. If you think that I have misquoted, misunderstood, or misinterpreted scripture, here is your chance to explain to us how and why. But you can’t simply object to my quoting scripture. That doesn’t make...

    Eternal life......when?

    Okay, here is the full quote in context: Galatians 2: 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of...

    Eternal life......when?

    You need to provide scripture reference for that before it can be discussed. What scripture(s) were you referring to specifically that speak of Jesus being “life in us”? Context is required before it can be properly discussed.

    A Slave to sin

    You got that nearly right but not quite. It is not just faith, but faith coupled with repentance: Matthew 4: 17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew 12: 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and...

    An apology to Calvinists & Pelagians: Without love I am nothing

    Since you guys are obsessed with Mormonism, and can’t leave it alone, even though this is meant to be a Calvinism forum, I will be happy to respond. I am pleased to inform you that Mormonism is God’s only true Church in the world today. It is a Restoration of the original and true Church of...

    An apology to Calvinists & Pelagians: Without love I am nothing

    “Cults” are the ones who can’t stand biblical and divine truth presented to them in plain language as plain as it can be. They hate the light, and prefer to be in darkness rather than light.

    An apology to Calvinists & Pelagians: Without love I am nothing

    What I have said is clear. I suggest you don’t try to put words in my mouth.

    A Slave to sin

    Good quote. The next verse is important as well: Luke 18: 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. A sinner can still humble himself and be exalted.

    A Slave to sin

    How do you explain hundreds of passages in the Bible which say the opposite? That is not an exaggeration. The number of passages in the Bible, Old and New Testaments, that say men are, can be, have been, and will be righteous (and blessed by God accordingly) are legion. I could quote them all...

    Eternal life......when?

    LOL! Okay, restate your question one more time, clearly and succinctly, and I will do my best to give it a short, succinct reply.

    Eternal life......when?

    Because it is relevant (vital) to the theology being discussed. Salvation and eternal life that can be lost is neither salvation nor eternal life by definition. Period. End of story. The best that one can have in this life is the assurance of salvation and eternal life in the world to come...

    CARMS semi pelagians and their false teaching on regeneration

    You are putting a brave face on it, and doing the best you can; but there are two issues with that argument. The first is the logic of it is faulty, it presents an irrational argument. You can’t be both a sinner and not a sinner at the same time. It is either one or the other. The other problem...

    Eternal life......when?

    That expression, of Jesus being “life,” is found in several scriptures, the following probably being the highlights: John 1: 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. • • • 9 That was the true Light, which...

    CARMS semi pelagians and their false teaching on regeneration

    Fair enough. I have my own way of marrying them. Let’s see how you marry them first, and then I will tell you mine. How do you reconcile Paul’s words with John’s, which clearly states that regenerate people don’t sin?

    CARMS semi pelagians and their false teaching on regeneration

    You are simply pitting one scripture against another. You are saying, “My scripture is better than yours!” Who says? I think that my scripture is better.

    CARMS semi pelagians and their false teaching on regeneration

    So “regenerate” people still sin, according to your theology, but not according to the Bible: 1 John 3: 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 5: 18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not...

    CARMS semi pelagians and their false teaching on regeneration

    There is one problem with that. The official name of the Church was given by revelation, by Jesus himself: Doctrine and Covenants 115: 4 For thus shall my church be called in the last days, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was not the invention of some man. And there...
