Noname; Jim has clearly has made many statements on here that reflects one who is devoid of the Spirit in dwelling in one. As he regularly has justified abortion on here.
From a Biblical standpoint their is no sinless perfection on this sided of Heaven, but one will either be a slave to Righteousness or a loyal slave to unrighteousness!
Jhn 7:24 Donât judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.â
Jim has created a God to fit his own sinful liking that excuses & justifies his pet sins. I am asumeing you havenât been on this form all that much, to see Jim many statements that pin one against Christ!!
Iâm no better than Jim just better off because either one is in Christ or oneâs out of Christ
Jesus makes it ever so clear of having false hope & one nât having a desire to be holy as Christ is by departing from sin!
Departing from a Biblical Worldview is a great sign one doesnât understand & get the utter importance that ones foundation of true reality. Starts with universal true truths, that ones conscience is bound too, Christ & His Word; Rom 2:13-15! That their is no King but Christ Alone, as a deviation from a Biblical Worldview one is sawing themselves in half, as one is either in Christ or they arenât amen!
Jim Roman Road has done no good for himself as He is a slave to his pet sins & promotes the lies of the enemy, pinning one against Christ amen!
Pro 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom & instruction.
Oâ How words have meaning to them, especially when they are played out with actions.
As we are currently are seeing being played out sadly in our own Nation.. Oâ Lord You are the only one who is the answer to our sin issues we have. As we donât have a skin color issues but a sin problem, that only Christ can bring true reconciliation too one amen!
Stalin; America is like a healthy body & its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.â
Ladybug; What I say is in a spirit of love, & in humility, for I know how I fail & fall short daily of His perfect mark of perfection.
Oâ how thankful I am for the Love of God each day, for His love we arenât worthy of it or deserving of it. Thank You Lord that Your kindness & Goodness leads one to saving & life changing repentance. Oâ What a Savior He is to the utter most Alone amen.
Lam 3:22-25 Through the Lordâs mercies we arenât consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. âThe Lord is my portion,â says my soul, âTherefore I hope in Him!â The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him.
Yes Ladybug which Christ is one serving or talking of is a very important question, to ask one. As the Mormon Jesus is another Jesus, as the Watchtower Jesus is to, as Islam Jesus was just a great prophet, & didnât Resurrect from the grave. Rome Jesus needs help too, etc.
So I agree with you on, who do I say that Jesus is a very important question to ask one, 100% agreement on that.
But who does & doesnât come into the Kingdom of Heaven is Godâs business in who are the Sheep & who isnât one of His regenerate sheep.
As Grace humbles one I am what I am but by the mere mercies of God Alone making me differ from someone else, who hasnât tasted & experienced the life changing Goodness of God reconciling them too Him.
Humility is key as just because one doesn't embrace the Doctrines of Grace, doesn't mean they aren't a Brother or sister in Christ. Since salvation is of the Lord Alone amen.
John Newton;When we look at the ungodly, we are not to hate them but to pity them, mourn over them and pray for them. Nor have we any right to boast over them; for, by nature, and of ourselves, we are no better than they.
I amnât saying you Ladybug but I have personally have experienced this & delt with this in my own walk. Were I have seen some real studied up men, have no true love or compassion for others, who think & reason differently than they do, as they werenât Reformed. That nonbelievers would express more love & care for some of the study uped Reformed men I have personally have delt with. As myself I do hold to the Doctrines of Godâs precious Grace from a theology & Biblical standpoint derived from scriptures. As Doctrines will dictate how you live, how you evangelizes, treat others, & many more aspects of our comings & goings in our lives.
Jonathan Edwards; Seek not to grow in knowledge chiefly for the sake of applause, and to enable you to dispute with others; but seek it for the benefit of your souls.
Ladybug are you saying that Charles Spurgeon is a unregenerate object of Godâs wrath currently?
Spurgeon clearly taught he wasnât ashamed of taking on the name of being a Calvinist or being a Baptist. But His creed was Jesus Christ Alone as his own salvation was of what only Christ could do for Him Alone or he would be helpless & hopeless.
I think this quote is very appropriate from John Newton. As truth being shared with one another itâs important to remind ones own self, to share in meekness, & love to others who may differ differently than I do. I have to constantly remind my own self of that many times over in one day alone, & I fail & fall short too, lol.
Jhn Newton; If I ever reach heaven I expect to find three wonders there first, to meet some I had not thought to see there second, to miss some I had expected to see there and third, the greatest wonder of all, to find myself there.
Ladybug I understand the mindset of the reasoning of why standing against truth that would lead one away from Christ.
My hope is derived from Christ Alone as Salvation is of the Lord Alone, Jonah 2:9. If it werenât of Christ Alone through the Eternal Godhead making one differ from one another, Heaven would have none. Since Christ is the Only True seeker of His people who werenât seeking Him. While they were still in the loins of the 1 ST Adam & nât set free by Christ yet in His perfect timing.
Oâ how precious grace is as it teaches ones the beauty of being humility that Christ brings to one. As God resists the proud but ever so how precious is grace seasoned with Love & Truth. That one is truly deserving of nothing but being objects of God justifying wrath to be bestowed on one.
Thank You Lord for truth given into ones mind & heart to reflect on.
JC Ryle;Tell me not of your justification, unless you have also some marks of sanctification. Boast not of Christâs work for you, unless you can show us the Spiritâs work in you.
Thank You Precious Lord for without Saving Faith itâs impossible to please You & with out Your Righteousness One isnât Holy. As holiness is a requirement for the Kingdom of Heaven!
John Newton;I am not what I might be, I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I wish to be, I am not what I hope to be. But I thank God I am not what I once was, and I can say with the great apostle, âBy the grace of God I am what I am.â
Jim; Benât deceived one is nât in a state of neutrality outside of Christ in nât having a new spiritual heart of Flesh.
As the Devil Favorite Word is tomorrow, as in tomorrow one can pass into eternity into perfect judgement against them, as they are a Foe of Christ & Nât a Friend amen!
Spurgeon;There must be a divorce! Within the egg of sin there sleeps the seed of damnation! Man, there must be a divorce between you and your sins. Not a mere separation for a season, but a clear divorce. Cut off the right arm; pluck out the right eye, & cast them from you, or else you canât enter into eternal life.
Jim supports lawlessness his own carnal flesh loves his own pest sins, as he is in slaved too them. As Jim has never been divorced from His sin, were he has a yearning & hunger for righteousness that only comes from Christ Alone through a changed heart & mind being renewed in & through Christ Alone amen!
As he justifies the ANTFIA thugs in Portland & aboard!
Pro 14:12,34 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.
Pro 14:9 Fools mock at sin, But among the upright there is favor.
Jim is liken to many others who have created a little god into their own sinful liking that looks at their own sin with a blindfold on permanently, justifying their sins! As their little god doesnât know whatâs going on & needs help!
Spurgeon; I venture to say that the greatest earthly blessing that God can give to any of us is health with the exception of sickness. Sickness has frequently been of more use to the saints of God than health has.
Itâs well to praise the Lord for His mercy when you are in health but make sure that you do it when you are sick, for then your praise is more likely to be genuine.
We are seldom grateful for good health. God knows that we need to be sick, sometimes, to make us know the value of health & therefore He sends us to the bed of sickness that we may learn a lesson of gratitude.
Oâ Saints guard the Well Spring of Life at all cost & benât ashamed in Love declaring why their is none like Christ Alone amen! Pro 4:23
Made me think of what our country is going through currently!
Jhn Flavel; Perhaps the smallness of the sin is urged as a reason why you may commit it: "Itâs but a little sin,but a small matter, but a trifle!"
But, if you commit this little sin you will offend a great God! Is there any little Hell to torment little sinners in? No! The least sinners in Hell are full of misery! There is great wrath treasured up for those whom the world regard as little sinners.
The less the sin the less the inducement you should have to commit it. Will you provoke God for a trifle? Will you destroy your peace, wound your conscience, & grieve the Spirit all for nothing? What madness is this!
Ladybug; Some interesting times, we are dealing with praise God that the True & only Triune God isnât taken back by whatâs going on. Oâ Lord strengthen Your people to seek Your kingdom first to seek wisdom & guidance, as one lays & cast their burdens at the foot of the Cross amen.
It sure does pass the look & smell like we are being introduced to Communism. By the surpression of our rights & liberties as Adults & Americans. To make our own choices to weither or nât to mask up in our coming & goings.
As the Godless tyrant Mayor in NYC said he willnât shut down mass BLM gatherings in NYC.
I was reading in CA they are thinking about trying to push in making people wear mask at their homes, welcome to Communism!
Jim; In your worldview you canât account for why racism is wrong! Stop imposing your post modernism relativism on the Current Sitting President or telling others they are wrong on here. As you have no Objective standard to look too, thatâs universally applicable, & pliable to all regardless if one embrace is that truth or nât.
The deplorable will be in Office for another 4 Years. After Nov!
But regardless who is in the White House their is no King but Christ Alone. As either Christ is ones Friend or Christ is ones Foe! Their is zero concept of neutrality with Christ ever!
1 Jhn 5:1-2,12 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, & everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God & keep His commandments. He who has the Son has life; he who doesnât have the Son of God doesnât have life.
Mr. Lemon comment is a perfect example of a person who loves their Pet Sins in whatever that maybe that in snares them by making them a slave too it.
I remember on at least 2 different occasions on a New Yearâs Eve live count down, Mr. Lemon was pretty drunk on live tv, talking trash!
Their is No King but Christ Alone amen!
Heb 7:25-27 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, & has become higher than the heavens; who doesnât need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins & then for the peopleâs, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
Skin color isnât the problem, or ones gender, or were one lives, but the sin that comes from within. That outterly defiles one is one problem; Jer 17:9!
As Critical Race Theory is a model birth in Marxism, that has zero power to transform ones spiritual heart of stone away, or wash away ones sin away.
Oâ how precious itâs to tell others that Christ didnât come for the righteous but He came to seek & save sinners, who are in dier need to taste & experience reconciliation in & through Christ Alone amen!
Important reminders to be light in darkness, to be gracious people who seek & hunger for Christ righteousness. To live in a holy manner. That I go alone but by the grace of God Alone. For without being fully dependent on His Grace Alone, Heaven has none!
Pro 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.
