    Hold on. Let's tackle trinity a bit later. We have a lot to discuss yet about disciple, new creation and saved.

    Meshak, did any disciples turn away? Do any new creations lose their new createdness? Does being a disciple mean 'saved?'

    Do you know of any scriptures that answer or address these questions? I will try to help in the next post but we are both committed to going to Jesus for the answers so I will wait on Him until He gives you these answers. -Lon

    FYI, there are religious orders of the Church who take vows of poverty and such, for those who are led of God to that sort of life. They are great assets, and many Saints of the Church were led to lead lives like this.
    THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN. Matthew 28:6 (KJV) Mark 16:6 (KJV) Luke 24:6 (KJV)

    Romans 10:9 (KJV) 1st Corinthians 15:14 (KJV)

    So you don't admit following Jesus is not the way to salvation?

    I think my answer will be the same as many Christians. We follow Him because we are saved. We don't follow Him trying to earn salvation.
    Jesus paid the price for me and you at Calvary. I can't add on brownie points to what Jesus did, through my behavior. He paid my debt in full.

    Again...I follow Him because I love Him...I'm indebted to Him...He knows what is best for me and wants my obedience.
    Without Genesis, absolutely nothing makes sense in all of Scripture.

    The Truth is that God tells us what to do to be saved, and we do it.

    God saves those who believe and obey Him.
    There she goes.....adding to the Gospel of Salvation. Shame on you, God's UNtruth.


    Why don't you tell us how many acts of obedience will get you saved and how many failures to obey will keep you from getting saved? Come on...don't be shy.

    Jesus says that we have to obey to be saved.

    You don't know the scriptures?

    Jesus says to search and you will find.

    Why don't you search for what he wants you to do?

    He will save you when he accepts you.

    Never give up, give out, or give in.

    Wait for the Lord.

    Paul says work it out with trembling and fear.

    As for that scripture about God so loving the world---that is about God loving His creation. God DOES NOT even know you personally unless you first love Him by obeying Him.

    Go ahead, ask me for the scriptures.

    Acts 16

    And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved

    John 3

    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    There's no such thing as predestination, we have freewill and a choice, to believe the gospel and believe in Jesus, or not. And once we believe we are to repent. If we don't believe and repent, then we are rejecting God and Christ. God doesn't save people before they believe, they must believe first to be saved!
    Exactly.

    What you said makes no sense. It sounds like you are an angry confused person. We are dirty rats you are a dirty rat, you say... You are the one speaking of rats and being a hypocrite.

    No, there isn't a tricky way to obey or to say you obey.

    There is never ever a wrong way to obey.

    You have been taught wrong by someone to believe that it is somehow wrong to obey, and to say you obey.

    It is not tricky.

    Obey to get saved, and to stay saved.

    Bump for Lon.

    I see that you visited yet you did not answer my question.

    You guys don't seem to know how to get saved it seems.

    I am trying to prove your condition of being saved is not biblical.

    So far you cannot answer my simple question.
