Re: Salvation in Jesus Christ

What are your thoughts about the statement that salvation is by faith and not by works? Do you believe we who are of faith ought to do good works? Do you believe you should obey God and call unbelievers to obedience? Does the proclamation of the gospel message include anything to be obedient to? If...

Re: Salvation in Jesus Christ

A lot of people think the Law is deceitful and treacherous. I have no idea why. BECAUSE THE BIBLE TEACHES IT. 9 And David says: “Let their table become a snare and a trap, A stumbling block and a recompense to them. 10 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see, And bow down their back alw...

Re: Should we observe all the commands from Jesus' ministry?

I believe Jesus observed and taught the Law. Did He observe the Mosaic law when He told the woman caught in adultery that He did not condemn her? The Pharisees present knew that the Mosaic law said to stone her to death: They said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery....

Re: Should we observe all the commands from Jesus' ministry?

Obeying God's commands does not negate the shed blood of Jesus. The way you are using it, the Bible says IT DOES negate the blood of Jesus. That is where you are neither LEARNING nor LISTENING. I do not believe you are a troll. I believe legalistic evil spirits are deceiving you and driving you con...

Re: Should we observe all the commands from Jesus' ministry?

We have the new covenant by Judaism. It is not a Christian invention. The new covenant is in Jesus. Judaism is the Old Covenant, not the New. I believe the Law of Moses is God's Law. This is according to the old covenant. Jesus fully affirmed it and the Word of God is inspired. I also believe 100% ...

Re: Should we observe all the commands from Jesus' ministry?

I am not beyond learning. SHOW people that. It's easy to claim. You've rejected a lot of Scriptures, that's not "learning." I have already accepted all of scripture in all translations. Should that be established first? I believe this is a site where people believe the Bible. We ask questions to le...

Re: Should we observe all the commands from Jesus' ministry?

You can't have BOTH Jesus and the Law. You can't claim Jesus as your Savior card, if you want to run back to the Law as an essential part of salvation. Scripture is black and white clear on this (study Galatians and Hebrews). If you are doing this, you are fallen from grace and you have rejected Ch...
