Hi Chris, I agree with some of your comments.Where we disagree is that you stated that we need to solve mysteries,riddles, and puzzles to make sense of His overall plan of salvation... I have not read any posts on here that would allude to you making such a remark. That said, when an individual comes on here and muddles the Sovereign Grace Gospel of God, it needs to be addressed and dealt with. Secondary issues are one thing, but the Gospel is to be defended and declared without compromise or any mixture of man and his filthy rags of works. Thatâs what some of us were seeing with DKH posts, and were addressing. Hope that clarifies it for you.
You have affirmed your synergistic introspective theology by the continual posting of what you are âdoingâ instead of resting in the finished work of Christ and what he accomplished and finished for His elect. Yes, the Gospel teaches us how to love and live as Christians out of our gratitude for what Christ did for us, but it is surely nothing that a child of God looks to or rests upon for evidence of our conversion. I fear that is your state.
Upon further perusal of DHK posts, many red flags are strewn about. You seem to follow a synergistic system of salvation.I would urge you to read the Gospel of John and the book of Romans over and over, praying for God to open your eyes to believe the Gospel of Free and Sovereign Grace.
Excellent Gospel preacher who faithfully has preached Christ and His Gospel for over 40 years to the Native Americans in Cherokee, North Carolina. I have listened to nearly all his God glorifying, man in the dust sermons.đ. Thanks for posting this up, perhaps it will be a benefit to someone, if they have been given ears to hear.
I too was released from a cult, but thereâs always a group who want to drag you back into the prison of self-righteousness and always looking to self (and others) instead of our Lord and Savior. One thing the Gospel will teach you is you are the chief of sinners and deserve nothing but wrath and condemnation.But, God had mercy on me and revealed Christ and granted me the grace of repentance to believe what has been purposed from before the foundation of the world, and accomplished by His Darling Son 2000 years ago. âIt Is Finishedâ. My only hope and rest. I know this is yours also. Praise God for His Great Mercy and Grace.

Must you stop sinning BEFORE God will save you? Keep in mind, repent means 'change of mind'...not interested in your 'testimonies' , quotes from compromisers, or any rabbit trails from the dynamic duo... What is repentance from DEAD works?
Since you can't get an answer sister..dead works in Scripture,refers to anything other than or in addition to the imputed righteousness of God in Christ which we vainly imagine contributes to or maintains salvation.

Frank is a mediator and is trying to keep the peace. For my characters sake, my husband is the leader of my home. Neither of you twos opinion matters. I do stay home and raise my children. I am within my biblical rights as we are not in church or an army or politics. I am done here.
Thank you for your input HM. I have read many of your comments on the forum and they have been quite beneficial. Do hope you will continue to post and not let a couple of disgruntled individuals who have some goofy ideas keep you from commenting. Most of us just ignore their prattle.
B. McC. You have given your opinion and advice, as you see it. Lurker, was right in his assessment, if John UK has such unwarranted malicious contempt for some on this forum, he needs to be gone and never return .
