  1. Gal. 1:6-8............
    "I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed."

  2. I believe that about says it all concerning one who would come here to ply us with error and to sow doubt. Thank you.
     
  3. Actually my sister, we are really on the same page.
     
  4. The Op
    was on the face of it nothing to do with baptism.though I think that was the original intention.
    It does God honour when people ask straightforward and honest questions.
    Any crooked or dishonest questions do more the work of the devil than of God.
    Actually you will find that I present an 'argument' a poor following maybe of Paul method (see Romans and hebrews) I would grant you. But a sequential thought and argument that is not only speaking to the person I am replying to but to any who may also read it.In that regard what you may need is not what another may.Faith in God comes not just by hearing the Word of God,for if it did all would be saved every ti email the gospel is preached.
    so it is not just the hearing that is needed with the ears.but the uderstanding also.
    what says the scriptures? With all thy getting, get understanding.
    Yes ,I did say it takes more than the scriptures to know ow the will of God.But was that all I said?Did I not then go onto say what else is needed?
    How is it then you quote the scriptures which apear to justify you. But do not then quote the scriptures that I gave to justify what I said?

    I did not then go off at a tangent. I simply did not conform to your thinking and quoted scripture you had perhaps never considered before.
    I stand then by what I said.
    Not that I deny the scriptures but that those self same scriptures teach how a man may "know and prove what is the will of God"

  5. Just for clarification when I used the term 'you' I was speaking as in an argument. I was not telling you personally what to do as I had no idea when I wrote it if you had bee baptised or not.
    In christ

  6. I just ran across a great example of taking one or two verses and making more of it than what is there.
    Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

    What????? I have been always taught that we are saved by grace thru faith. (Tongue firmly planted in cheek!)
    You must take into account all other scripture on whatever issue you are making a determination about, while being lead by the Spirit. One or two verses does not make it so.
    Just like this verse, the Holy Spirit is conveying a thought to a believer who should know what really saves them, and how hope is an element to the faith of the believer. Keep letting the truth of the Word sink in to realize meaning and understanding.
