I never said anyone was saved by his intellect, Remo. Apparently you are a bit deficient in the understanding department alsoâor just a contentious, deliberate liar who, like a couple of others on this site, thinks he can run others off through bullying and domineering.
Remo wrote, âDKH is saved.â Now letâs get this straight. DKH makes statements that indicate that he doesnât understand how to be saved, so I express doubts as to whether he is saved or not. You then ask, â Who made you the judge?â But then you yourself pronounce the verdict that DKH definitely IS saved. Okay then, Sweet Pea, who made YOU the judge?
DKH, if you are unable to distinguish between passages dealing with salvation and those dealing with discipleship, I question whether you are saved at all. Discipleship is about obedience. Salvation is about grace apart from any personal righteousness of our own. Disciples of Christ should by all means be followers of Christ, but no one ever got saved by following Christ. BTW, since your pride and/or fear wonât allow you to answer my question, Iâll answer it for you: No, you have not stopped sinning, and neither have I, and neither has anyone else on this forumâEcclesiastes 7:20, I John 1:8 & 10.
When you ask what ârepent of your sinsâ means, most will say to turn from them. When you ask what âturn from your sinsâ means they will say to stop committing them. When you ask âHave YOU stopped sinning?â they can either lie or say, âNo, I havenât.â So what does ârepent of your sinsâ mean?
Read some of the phrases in the article: âEstimates.â âMight be.â âCould be.â âSuggested.â âMight have been.â This sounds to me like a typical âscientificâ article on some aspect of evolution, filled with guesstimates, speculation, and pure fantasy. Why donât the âscientistsâ and quacks just admit that they donât have a clue? Oh, that would jeopardize their god status, wouldnât it?
Jim, to say that you abhor and oppose homosexuality, and yet support Democratic candidates for office, is the equivalent of saying that you love Jews but think Hitler was a swell guy. Every Democratic candidate not only accepts the sodomite lifestyle, but ardently affirms and embraces it. Wake up and smell the brimstone.
