    I know the peace of Elohim that surpasses all understanding. I do so only by grace and have nothing in which to boast. You seem to rejoice in your blind stupidity and I take it that is your "free-will" decision? Rhetorical?

    Paul exhorted Tim to lay hold on eternal life. Tim has eternal life. Paul was telling him to live accordingly. When you know you have eternal life, 1 John 5:13, you can take on a whole new perspective of how you can live your life to please God!

    Thanks again for offering your opinion.

    Do you have any scripture to support your opinion?

    No doubt you would have listed then if you had.

    Well that's ok.

    You can learn from the scripture I post
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    All is work unless you literally do nothing.

    You running around calling everyone stupid is a work.... You should study scripture and see what sort of working is, and what will be recompensed for such acts.

    You bring up a very good perspective that is worth delving into further.

    I Thessalonians 1:3 comes to mind immediately

    Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

    Reading the opening we learn that the recipients of this epistle are the church in God the Father and in the lord Jesus Christ. I Thessalonians 1:1

    We learn in I Thessalonians 1:4 that Paul is writing to brethren, beloved, and Paul knows of their election of God.

    Paul is clearly writing to those who have received the gift of salvation.

    As you point out, salvation does not mean laziness, it means we do do something with that salvation.

    What did the church in Thes do? Paul was thankful for their work of faith and labor of love.

    They were busy doing something with their salvation!

    Shalom.

    After receiving salvation you ought to grow in your faith.

    Shalom.

    You think that once you have given your heart to Jesus (works) you must then do more works to ensure salvation is completed.(works)

    As opposed to salvation is by grace and through trust from beginning to end.

    They were busy doing something with their faith in the Resurrection. It's pretty easy to do. And fun.

    And shut up, @Truster. Bible correcter.
    HE IS RISEN. Matthew 28:6 (KJV) Mark 16:6 (KJV) Luke 24:6 (KJV)

    487 . . . the Catholic faith . . . in Christ.

    Paul was exhorting Timothy to "take hold of eternal life" as opposed to taking hold of temporal existence and everything that entails. To lay hold of the things pertaining to the eternal kingdom instead of the things of the world and time.

    There are at least 10 scriptures in my post, but you probably won't see them.

    Yes, that is what I said.

    well, saying that there are and showing them are two different things.

    Luke 4:17-19

    And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

    18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

    19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.


    Nehemiah 8:8

    So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

    Why should I believe your source is scripture if you do not provide any?
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Indeed, they were being "not slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord" Romans 12:11
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2
