    Luke 5:32

    Sinners are called to repentance. Which proves that repentance is not available to man as a right or ability.

    God just humbled me.

    I have been boastful.

    I will try to refrain my big mouth.

    My point was that verse was not clear at all.

    There are many verses like that.

    that's why I stick to what Jesus says.

    I have often seen things in verses that I hadn't seen before. Being humbled at the hand of the Almighty is a wonderful experience. Not at the time, but with hindsight. Rejoice that He took the time to do so.

    Thank you. I suppose there are different ways to make such a U-turn. One might stop and change direction with one's thoughts, or with one's words, or with one's deeds.

    When it comes to the U-turn required for eternal salvation, which of these do you think is required of me?

    If you couldn't perceive the mistakes then you would be of the ignorant. The mere fact that you do feel shame shows that you are meant to be close to GOD in my opinion.

    Patience friend, and perseverance in what you KNOW of the will of GOD in your personal life.

    Peace friend.

    If you object to me interjecting with unwarranted advice to a post that was never intended for me then I understand. Just let me know.

    Such an individual would have no shame upon judgement and no fear in life on this plane or material existence.

    1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."

    It seems to me much of scripture is ambiguous, as is this passage. For there is another possible meaning: The perfect love is not my love for God, which I fear will never be perfect, but God's love for me.

    Which possibility is more probable I don't know.

I just see it might be a possibility. I've often found after exploring what appears to be two opposing ideas that they actually are not at odds with one another, but focus on different aspects of a truth. Have you ever discovered the same?

    Yeah, no. I mean, I agree it's illogical to fear what I've already decided to do, but that's not the fear I'm talking about. The fear occurs during the temptation, before the decision is made to sin or not to sin. At that moment, before the decision, I fear (as the pirate First Mate Silver chose for a vital task from my illustration) letting God down.

    A soldier might fear the same before deciding to giving in to the temptation to give in to cowardice before the decision to commit a cowardly act is made. She might fear letting her commanding officer down.

    ...That attracts stupid remarks like yours. Leave the lady alone and stop using threads to attack people. This neither interests nor concerns you. If you want a verse for that:


    "Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of Elohim.".

    1. Meshak is not what you think.

    2. I made an observation. A correct one.

    3. Report me if you think I broke a rule, you pathetic legalist.

    My irony meter just blew and entered low earth orbit.


    Why is it that people who question the integrity of others always go on to prove they have none of their own?
