    You are desperate and say anything. I say repent of our sins and work out our salvation and to train ourselves. You make up anything to justify your false beliefs. Doesn't that tell you something when you have to say anything to defend your beliefs?
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    You don't even know God and He does not know you unless you obey. That is the Word of God who says that in the Holy Bible.
    There seems to be a relationship between faith and obedience. Gideon needed quite a few signs to muster his faith to the point of obedience.

    It is not so hard.

    Faith by itself is dead. Faith with right action is alive.

    If someone wants to find out, all they have to do is do what Jesus says, then they will be given faith.
    See John 7:17.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    You both are so contentious and mixed up.
    I haven't said anything about you, and the reason I reacted to meshaks post is because she is right regarding how overly sensitive you are, you go over the top if people don't agree with every single thing you say, you take things too personally. I don't have anything against you, and I agree with many things that you say, but if we disagree on one point, that's it, you start with the badmouthing.

    We must obey God, Jesus said those who enter the kingdom of heaven are those who do the will of the father. And they are also those who are his brothers and sisters and mother.

    So living by the will of God is a must, and that is obeying him. And if we have true faith then God will be first in our lives and we will want to do his will and we will want to please our father because we love him.

    I have been bad mouthed by my opponent gossiping around about my faith over and over. They tell me I am just like GT.

    It is so disgraceful and lie. We have nothing in common.
    If you want to be true to God and Jesus, abandon any kind of violence at all cost. By advocating any kind of violence, you are misrepresenting Christianity.

    You just don't like to be corrected by anyone about anything.

    No you did say something about me and you prove that you are a dishonest person.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Where? when? and what did I say?

    By the way, I get corrected all the time, so that's not true. But in God, if I have scriptures that prove what I say is right, then I'll believe them.

    Let them say what they like Meshak, they say bad things about the way I believe too, Jesus says that we will go through this once we truly follow him. And we are to suffer it and take it and have a forgiving heart and carry on baring witness to the truth regardless of what anyone does to us or says about us and still have hope for them. And if we keep our faith and love God from our hearts and truly follow Jesus then God by his grace will strengthen us to bare it, we just do Gods will, and leave the judging to God.

    For someone supposedly against works, Paul worked pretty hard, and "boasted" about these.
    Excellent point and fully on display in this thread. If you quote James then according to the OP you must be a "Judaizer", and according to the Reformist-Calvinist you must be an Arminian, Synergist, blah, blah, blah. Nothing but excuses from people not taking all of the writings into account, and rather choosing one author over another, pitting scripture against scripture so as to nullify what they do not wish to accept or believe. However, where do we find any warning about those who twist and subvert the writings of James to their own destruction? (lol), nowhere, but we do read of Peter saying the same concerning the writings of Paul, and that is enough for me to guard myself, and to take that warning seriously, and to be very careful when it comes to the (awesomely supernal) things that Paul is teaching.

    You are right. That's why I am saying I am not mature like you. My worldly mind get upset when I see people smearing my faith for my God and Jesus and spreading lies that I am a non-believer.

    It is so despicable and vicious when they spread with gossiping manner like they do.

    thanks.
