No. You stand for faith-alone. There is no such thing as faith-alone. Faith cannot exist alone. That is standing for nothing.See, this is what I mean about being disagreeable. Whatever you believe, it has no principles, you stand for nothing.
I, on the other hand, very much stand for something, I stand for faith with works and that does exist. Without works, faith is dead.
Again, I'm sure that you know that "always" is a little too comprehensive.Your response is always reactive to be opposite of whatever I say,
But all of this, is a great example of bickering. Rather than argue the point, you've spent an inordinate amount of time arguing about how I respond. This argument would have been over a long time ago if you really had an answer to my questions. Instead, what you do is say, I'm out of here. Let me dust my feet on the way out. Such thoughtful responses.because I believe you're more interested in bickering than identifying truth.
I'm pretty sure that everyone here knows that I believe that our church teaches a works-based salvation. Most misunderstand it. They assume perfection is demanded, they keep making claims that there are things that are required or you can't be exalted, and they are wrong most of the time.
And that's all you got out of it. You have now joined the ranks of those who seem to only be able to focus on 4 or 5 words to draw conclusions. You do not seem to understand that it is hard for the sinner to give up his sins. So hard, in fact, that many of them think that they don't have to, Among these are the faith-alone followers. If it was easy to give up sins, then everyone would do it just on the off chance that Christians might be right, but it's not and I would say, a majority of Christians are not worthy of salvation. But faith-alone is a great gimmick. It sells a lot of seats at the Cathedral. It's full of people who think they don't have to give up sin to be saved.Oh, ok. So it's hard now?
