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.
Ladybug wrote: Is repentance from sin necessary before God will save you? What does Hebrews 6:1, -repentance from dead works-mean? lordshippers and legalists want to dance, not interested in that. 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 .

Sorry Tim, your choice for our next president just will not be tolerated in our over the top pc country. It will have to be a non-binary individual with rainbow- colored hair.
Mike wrote: Yes she did, MS. Thank you for asking! The surgery went well. We have to go back tomorrow for the first checkup. She says it's blurry but that is normal from what we've learned. Has to wear a plastic thing over it while sleeping for now. How are your eyes doing, btw? A side note. My wife had to take a Covid19 test last Thursday, because they won't do surgery if you have it. She was talking to a nurse today, asked how many of the people coming in had it. Nurse said less than 1%. She could only remember 1 person that had it.
PTL great news.I am doing well and hopefully will be able to see my eye specialist in July for another checkup.Where he is located, there are riots and all sorts of nonsense going on.
Most of the hospitals in our state have been virtually empty, until they started the elective surgeries again.What a pandemic..no one has it. Once again great news on your wife.I had to wear the plastic shield for months.My husband would call me Patch the Pirate.

Hello there bro. Dave-Praying for you and yours also. You are missed on here as well as bro.Christopher.But, I understand that we all need to take a leave of absence now and then. Hope you both return soon. May God richly bless you.
The mobs need to carry signs that read: âLook at us , we rob, set fire to buildings, and create havoc, to stop police brutality and racism.â No one believes this is about George Floyd anymore, even their own Governor said that.
WMR- yes, I agree. But, that would not have satisfied those with a pack mentality, who are just looking for an excuse to take to the streets to loot and burn.Have seen it many times in my lifetime. Even though this PO has been charged, they will continue with their crimes as it is going on in other major cities in America. Thanks for the exchange, and a good evening to you.
